That's fine, and it's fun to think about possibilities and all. But at least in the subject line, say "Rumor:....." This should keep people from breathing down your neck about sources, links, etc.

That's a laugh.

OK, I'll try to edit the subject line for those that don't bother to read message bodies.

Y'all need to chill on the skepticism. I said there was a rumor of a press conference, that's it, I know nothing more about the validity.


Thanks for the link, very interesting. I know it's just a rumor, but at least it gives me something to think about while I'm "working"

I will admit it's an interesting idea, considering the ChiSox could use an upgrade at SS (though Valentin is still so-so).

I have mixed feelings about getting RJ in Boston though.. he'd get big wins for us, but I like the old familiar rotation we already have (even if 1/2 of them are shaky). Adding RJ seems gluttonous.

If the trade happened, it'd be a slam dunk for the Red Sox. They're getting RJ for a player who will otherwise walk away. For glutony, See: Steinbrenner.

But who's to say Boston is willing to give RJ a contract extension? They have to worry about Pedro, Lowe and Varitek too. Who knows if they'll go resign RJ or if RJ will want to resign there if they don't win the world series this year.

RJ is signed through next year....16 mill (I believe).

Even if this rumor is true they will hold up the announcement until tomorrow. But I'm not buying the rumor ATM (no offense to the messenger). :-)

IMO, no way this trade happens. Boston can't sign RJ long term, and that's what he wants. I don't see it happening.
