Default Anybody else think that the everett trade is gonna hurt us?

i think that the second everett deal is gonna come back to haunt us. given a consistent chance in Mtl. I think that rauch is gonna be a pretty decent 4th or 5th starter(he already beat petitte and the stros!) , and I know that majewski has been bouncing around throughout his career, but he has closer stuff. and everett isnt exacltly lighting the world on fire either. also i think that this deal is gonna hurt us financially, since everett is probably gonna take his 4.5 mil option next yr. and prevent us from signing a "grinder" like Cat or hairston. but what else can you expect when a moron like KW is running your team?!!!

all year long i've been thinking rauch looks more major league ready than diaz. i still just don't get why he sat on the bench for 2 weeks after he had that rather good start against cleveland right before the cubs series. he seemed like our best fifth starter option, but never pitched again.

Wow take it easy! KW just obtained 2 pretty damn good pitchers. If you want to point the finger it starts and ends with Reinsdorf.
As far as the Bears 4-12 wait and see I'm thinking at least 8-8.

This trade didn't hurt us a bit. Besdies, Diaz has showed so much promise.

but we're assuming jon rauch would have been even passable for us, never mind what he does in nowhere-nopressure land up north?

*****.

Yes, I think that we could regret it, primarily because it isn't clear where Everett will fit next year. I've never been a great supporter of KW, but the trade made good sense at the time it was made.

If Everett gets 100% healthy to play the field, I think he will be our starting right fielder next season.

The Sox needed to get another bat and it made sense to go for it at the time the trade was made. With that said, I do think Rauch is going to be a decent MLB pitcher - I would have rather kept him and dealt Diaz (who also probably had more trade value).
