Default Sox turned down a deal with the Cards

The Cards offer was Martinez (#3) prospect for Alexei Ramirez

I'd have taken that deal.

6th paragraph. That is slightly unnerving if true.

With the money owed Ramirez and his age, I thought he was basically worthless, I guess not.

The more I think about this, the Sox probably had to pick up a large amount of salary. Thats the only way this makes sense.

That would be salary dumping to the extreme. We just as soon give players away, if we are going to turn down a top 10 prospect in all of baseball for a declining Alexei. The only thing more ridiculous than us turning it down would be St Louis making that offer.
It's so ridiculous that I really doubt that offer was ever made by St Louis.
It kind of goes along with those other strange St Louis rumors that were about this afternoon such as we were insisting on David Freese as part of a package for Peavy and Alexei.

Agreed. I'm not going to crucify Hahn on the basis of this unsubstantiated rumor, which frankly sounds like a tall tale. I could see Martinez being involved in a larger package that involves Peavy, but straight up for Ramirez? I don't buy that it actually happened.

Unlike seemingly everyone else, I believe Alexei could draw such an offer. I don't, however, believe Hahn would turn it down. Alexei is a great defensive SS, and plate discipline be damned, he has a very solid bat. Surefire contributors at one of the most difficult positions to fill on the diamond aren't easy to find and have definite value to a contending club, whereas prospects are just that - prospects. Add in the fact that he is locked into a contract that IS NOT anywhere near horrible for a SS, and I think you can see the value both long and short term for him on that contender.

I refuse to beleive Hahn would turn this down. Martinez is a better prospect than I thought would get offered for Rios.
