    Boston Red Sox are loading up

    I am so pumped Adding Carl Crawford and Adrian Gonzalez is just sick to that already killer lineup.

    1. Elsbury
    2. Carl Crawford
    3. Adrian Gonzales
    4. Youkiliss
    5. Big Papi.
    6. Pedroia
    7. J.D. Drew
    8. Cameron
    9. Saltalamachia

    That is a killer line up.

    Pitchers
    1. Lackey
    2. Lester
    3. Beckett
    4. Matsuzaka
    5. Wakfield (Possibly someone else in Wakfields spot)


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    I can't wait to see what Crawford looks like in years 5,6 and 7 of this deal. Never would have given him a 7 year contract.

    Does not compute...
    You have 4 OF in this lineup and Gonzalez and Ortiz. Ortiz is gonna DH that leaves Cameron as the 4th OF.
    Who did you forget? Scutaro the SS. He will hit 8


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    I just hope the Red Sox can find a way to win the division over the Yankees.

    With the way the Red Sox are spending money they can just cut him and eat the last couple years, if they have to. That team is going to be nice next year. The AL East will be brutal.

    Or they can use him for a few years to beat the Yankees, then while he is still valuable in 3 or 4 years, trade him to the Yankees for the downslide of his career. They are about the only other team that can afford that huge contract.

    And where is Gonzalez playing? Also the thought of Papi playing 1B just makes me laugh.

    Gonzalez at 1B, Papi at SS. It's a new look lineup, gotta make some radical changes after not making the playoffs.

    I think the lineup will look more like this:

    1. Pedroia R
    2. Crawford L
    3. Youkilis R
    4. A. Gonzalez L
    5. Ortiz L
    6. JD Drew L
    7. Scutaro R
    8. Salty/Varitek S/S
    9. Ellsbury L

    You mean when he is 34, 35, and 36? The Red Sox had Bill James work up a full analysis on Crawford's skill set before they pulled the trigger. It showed that he specialized in the tools of a "young-player" (speed, defense, contact) which typically age much better then the tools of an "old-player" (power). If the Red Sox win a title in the next 7 years I imagine they will be just fine with the deal.

    Yes and leave Adrian Gonzalez on the bench. Do you work for the Royals?

    Re: Boston Red Sox are loading up

    and in your rotation you forgot Clay Buckholz who will probably be the 3 or 4. Wakefield is out of the pen.
    Matzusaka has been mentioned in trade rumors.

    Gotta love "fans" that can't even spell the names of the players or put together a legitimate lineup. Careful, I hear it's a bumpy ride on that bandwagon.

    Re: Boston Red Sox are loading up

    I love being an Oriole fan.


    We apparently were figuring in the discussion on D Lee. Good lord. Glenn Davis anyone? Albert Belle? I guess I shouldn't assume they will overpay but they usually do.

    Please Buck, work a miracle!


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.
