Red Sox Update...

Postby ajgnydc722 » Thu Jul 01, 2004 6:52 pm

I was just watching the Yankee Pre-Game show and Susan Waldman was reporting that the Red Sox are talking about trading their free agents if they seem to be out of it by the trade deadline. She then said she doesn't see how the Sox could be out of it by then but that Boston is not a happy team...

Things aren't looking good in Beantown... :-o

I don't see tham being out of it....they are still a very good team.

However, of those FA's, Varitek is the most important for the Sox's future.

Don't listen to everything the media says...especially if it was on a Yankee pre-game show...They of course arn't happy with how they have played the past couple weeks but the team chemistry is very high. They are a very happy team and are all good friends...Along with that, they are most definetly not going to trade away all their free agents...that nonsense. Of course one or two will probably go, that's just the way it works...

The only FA I could see being traded is Lowe, but who would want to take him?

From Boston Globe today. At the very least it is interesting read

Desperate times?
BUZZ FACTOR -- High: The Red Sox are certainly reeling, and it's becoming increasingly obvious that 1) Nomar Garciaparra isn't the Nomar of old, at least not yet, and 2) this team desperately needs a first baseman. That being said, Sox owner John W. Henry maintained in an e-mail Wednesday night that the Sox wouldn't be shaken by a single loss, even ones as devastating as the last two. Does that mean the team isn't on the verge of making a move? Not necessarily. When asked if the Sox were shopping Nomar in a WEEI-850 AM radio interview Thursday morning, Sox CEO Larry Lucchino skirted the issue, saying only that "no player is unavailable." You've got to assume Theo's working the phones around the clock looking for an answer at first base. The Buzz Factor's increasing every day. ... The Boston Herald's Tony Massarotti reported Sunday that Epstein "seemingly covets a good hitter rather than a mediocre pitcher, which means that teams like the Toronto Blue Jays bear watching. The Jays will likely be a seller during the next five weeks, which could create a market for first baseman Carlos Delgado." The Newark Star-Ledger and Gammons reported that Toronto's Frank Catalanotto may eventually appear on Theo's radar screen.


Nomie's gotta go?
BUZZ FACTOR -- Medium: Garciaparra's defensive struggles continued Wednesday night in the Bronx, and Red Sox Nation is growing increasingly impatient with the former All-Star. In a Buzz poll Wednesday, more than 70 percent of responders thought the Red Sox should trade Nomar. The team is rumored to be shopping him around, but their obviously being tight-lipped. Owner John W. Henry wouldn't touch the subject in an e-mail with the media, and all team CEO Larry Lucchino would say is that "no one is untouchable." ... So who'd be interested in Nomie? In Thursday's Boston Globe, Gordon Edes had a couple suggestions: "The Dodgers? Everyone thought so, at least until Cesar Izturis, who already was playing Pokey-caliber defense, became a productive hitter, too. The Angels have been a long rumored destination as well, playing in Nomar's backyard as a kid, and on paper, there could be something there. The Angels have an extra (and disgruntled) pitcher in Ramon Ortiz, and could offer an infielder (David Eckstein) in return. But the Angels, who have had a run of injuries as ridiculous as the one that crippled the Sox, could wait until after the season and sign Garciaparra as a free agent." ... Another interesting tidbit from Edes: "One Sox player, saying he believes Boston's primary need is another starting pitcher, said yesterday he had thought Garciaparra would be traded to Seattle for righthander Freddy Garcia, who instead went to the White Sox."

Not sure why the Sox would trade for a 5th starter who is actually worse then the one they have already
