    Re: The Red Sox Thread

    After the 2011 Red Sox I can understand the 2004 references.

    Boegarts and Barnes could easily get Hamels. Boston probably wouldn't do that though.

    He's not, he will. Nava, Ross, Podsednik, Shoppach, Saltalamacchia have played above their means and quite frankly Ortiz will regress a bit. I think you are right though, AGon, Ellsbury and a healthy Pedroia will make up for it with corrections on what they are capable of.

    FWIW-Im going to have to see a better walk rate from Middlebrooks before I call him a better hitter than current ARod.

    I wouldn't be too sure of that. Hamels is a legit #1; Bogaerts isn't close to ready and I don't know much about Barnes, but he should be dominating A ball at his age.

    Philly would, and should, ask for a third player.

    Re: The Red Sox Thread

    Boegarts is about as hyped as they come and Barnes has been destroying the lower levels. If another team has comparable prospects, they won't give up more than that.

    Texas could match with a Perez/Profar trade but I doubt they would give up that too.

    The Red Sox should shop Ellsbury + for a pitcher. He is a Boras client, and it is doubtful that he will get what he wants in Boston, what with the Crawford contract.

    I think it's been Ellsbury's intention to leave for awhile, but we'll see.

    I don't know how many would take the risk for a half year rental for someone who would be just returning from the DL.

    Why would the Phils care for hype? He's still ways off and they're not a team that's looking to rebuild.

    It's not the hype but the talent they would get from it.

    They aren't looking to rebuild, but at the same measure they are looking for the best available talent. Boegarts is in Hi A doing very well at SS, he will probably move to 3B where the Phillies have an opening. They could be aggressive with him like the Marlins were with Hanley.

    FWIW- Olney is reporting that the Phillies are looking for 4-5 prospects for Hamels, but that many GM's don't think they will get anything close due to the new CBA. I don't know how many GM's would mortgage the farm for a 3 month rental, but stranger things have happened.

    Kudos to Tk8 for the creative or should i say non creative way of sneaking in another 2004 reference. Some things are so predictable.

    There was definitely a comment by him but it was more than just him..even Francona made some comments that didn't go over well which was surprising..obviously he's gone too but I get the feeling Ellsbury is sort of a loner in that clubhouse from things I've read ...

    Not to pile on here, but the other flaw with a 2004 reference is that there's basically nobody left from that team on the current Sox, save Ortiz, so it's not like you can say the team has that season in their memories.

    Far more applicable for what the Sox might do in 2012 is their second half performances over the last 3 seasons: (2011: 35-36, 2010: 38-35, 2009: 40-33).

    If the 2012 Sox follow this trend, and their best baseball is behind them once the all star break hits, then they're hurting. I don't necessarily believe that's the case, but the past three seasons are far more relevant to 2012 than 2004 is, especially because the pitching staff is composed of mostly of the same guys that were responsible for the 2nd half collapses over the last 2-3 seasons.

    If you're going to cite a random, irrelevant year to illustrate that "anything can happen in the standings" or that "baseball isn't easy to predict," 1978 has more relevance than 2004, considering the Yankees actually overtook the Sox that year, or 2011 because the Sox actually blew a 9 game lead to lose out in the WC.

    You will have to pay but there is a ticket agency called Ace Tickets out of Boston. You could also see if you can get lucky by going to redsox.com, there may be standing room tickets available.

    ok, thanks Rick. I'll try for a few min but she's not going to want to stand with a young child. I'll see what I can find though, if anything.

    ah too bad...guess it doesn't matter now...but that sellout streak is a farce and has been for awhile...I think at one point the Sox were giving some away or putting them up on stubhub or somewhere to keep the illusion alive...I'm not sure why it's such a big deal to them in the first place?
