They had been looking at VMart for a while, hard to think they didn't consider it a possibility that they'd eventually land him.
Either way they got LaRoche for basically nothing, so I guess why not do it.


I'm assuming V-Mart was Plan A and LaRoche was Plan B.

It just so happens that they pulled the trigger on B first.

If you remember Tampa Bay were also strongly after V-Mart.
When Boston snagged V-Mart they decided that they didn't need LaRoche's bat and opted for Kotchman's defense and longer cost-controlled-ness.

Theo himself said something like that.

But you do?

Did I say I did?

No I didn't.

I'm part of "none of you".

It's just funny how a lot of people on here run their mouth like they know everything, when half the time they probably never played an inning of baseball in their lives. All I said was it seemed to me like LaRoche was going to be traded again, and then he was. It doesn't mean I'm trying to pretend like I know what Theo Epstein and the Red Sox were thinking the whole way.
Gimme a break. :-°

Sorry I guess this statement:
Guess they did get him to trade.
that you made me think you where saying that's why they got him.


And I thought that my opinion was very cut and dry and plain.

Still don't think that was the original plan with him though. I think once they realized they had V-Mart they didn't need him as much and Kotchman fits into their team much better



I was just expressing my thoughts on it and never claimed to be saying what they where really planning on doing all along. Even though I was accused of doing that. :-D ;-D

Relax dad. Just an observation. Wasn't actually speaking specifically about you anyway. Enjoy your Sunday.

I'd like to know how not playing baseball inhibits my ability to predict or analyze what GMs are doing.

I expect at least 3 paragraphs, and it has to make sense.

Thanks ;-D
