    Tampa Bay may trade Crawford this offseason

    The Rays didn't do much before the trade deadline, but you can bet that they will be very busy in the off-season, when they may well move left fielder Carl Crawford and left-hander Scott Kazmir. Tampa Bay, like all small market and big market teams, must constantly fight to avoid being too top-heavy with high-salary veterans.

    I wonder where they would go both could be very very important peices wherever they were to end up

    Re: Tampa Bay may trade Crawford this offseason

    Another interesting name that could be traded this offseason

    According to Nick Cafardo at the Boston Globe, you can expect the Red Sox to listen to offers for Daisuke Matsuzaka this offseason. There's a hope Matsuzaka will right the ship and return to success after injuries this season to help his trade value.
    Matsuzaka's recent comments criticizing the team's rehab process might have been too much for him to have a place on the organization. Cafardo wonders if the team underestimated "the cultural and philosophical differences that would lead to a constant butting of heads." Matsuzaka would have to sign off on any deal, but indications are that he would okay a trade.
    Cafardo also talked to a GM who said that Matsuzaka should draw interest from teams, as the Red Sox have already paid the enormous posting fee (over $51MM), his contract is otherwise reasonable, and because the Sox have a good history of taking care of their pitchers.

    I don't know where thwy may end up, but if the Rays don't get some good pitching in the deal, they are nuts.

    I'd trade Matsuzaka & Drew for Crawford & Kazmir


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    I can tell that you're joking, but Silverman would laugh Epstein out of the room if Theo came at him with that.

    Olney says we could see both Adrian Gonzalez and Heath Bell moved to restock what's become a poor farm system.

    Actually, as a Sox fan, I would take that swap. But obviously it's not going to happen, it's just a tad lopsided.

    For what they'll be asking in return, I wouldn't want him. He's a good player, not great.
