How long is Buehrle locked up for? Hes the key to this rotation.

Anyone else have that feeling too or am I way off here?
Oh great, here we go.

The 2005 Sox would have a tough time handling this new 2006 version of the team.


Putting McCarthy in the bullpen strengthens the pen, and gives us insurance.

I dont think letting Contreras go is a good idea---I would keep him and let hi walk.

Awesome signing. Not only does this give the Sox a 6 man rotation with McCarthy floating between starting and the bullpen, other starters can do it as well.

Say Garcia or Buerhle is getting tired, move them to the bullpen for a week or two. What other major league team can do that?

Glad I did pony up for my Ozzie plan! There aren't going to be any tickets left once they go on sale, especially if Contreras gets dealt in another KW blockbuster. I think Kenny for once is going to enjoy being chased, instead of being the one always doing the chasing. He can sit back like the godfather with all that pitching and let everyone grovel at his feet to make a deal. So for once he may not be in a hurry, although that isn't his nature.

I don't think this adds much to next year's budget because Garland would have got $9m in arbitration, I'd think. The issue is years 2 and 3. On one hand, he's never been bad, and never been hurt. On the other hand, he's had one good year (albeit at 26, which is a common age for pitchers to break out.) I hope this isn't irrational exuberance a la Baltimore, the Dodgers or the Mets. You could argue that in a few years we'll be cursing the long term contracts that we gave to him and Paulie...

As I said in another thread, it's highly unlikely that the Sox turn around and trade JG this season. While he doesn't have a no trade clause, it is very likely that JG signed with the understanding that he would be here at least this season. To trade him now or in the coming months would send an awful signal to agents and players and hamper our own ability to sign FAs and resign our own players at fair prices without no trade clauses.

The only thing I can see Ozzie doing is skipping them but not sending them to the bullpen for 2 weeks that's crazy. Next year the pitching staff is going to be great they should be competing against each other to see who is the best pitcher in the team. Just like they step up in the playoffs against the Angels.

Love this signing. Solidifies the rotation for the next few years. I honestly think we go into the season with 6 starters, McCarthy out of the bp and spot starting. It protects us in case of injury or fatigue, etc. If we aren't injured or fatigued, this probably means a deadline deal for Contreras.

Great signing. Looks like Garland read my warning about arbitration.

I wonder if he heard from any other players reminding him that if he left, he would be leaving a World Series Champion...for what?
