You've got sixteen position players there (including Ortiz)...

Andrew Miller, baby!
Commented on What will happen with Daniel Nava in 2015? on Aug 20 2014, 4:48p
Any chance he gets DFA'ed once Craig is ready to play?

Who's going to be trading for him, though?
Commented on Rusney Castillo decision expected by week's end on Aug 20 2014, 4:41p - 1 reply
He's not as good as his numbers earlier in the season...
Commented on Allen Craig begins rehab assignment in Pawtucket on Aug 20 2014, 4:39p
If they're giving him $50M, his roster spot is secure
Commented on Rusney Castillo decision expected by week's end on Aug 20 2014, 4:34p
Possible, perhaps, that the presence of Cespedes on the Sox might lead him our way?
Commented on Rusney Castillo decision expected by week's end on Aug 20 2014, 4:28p - 2 replies
That's the only thing that makes sense; no one else (that I recall) had him pegged at anywhere other than 1B or DH
Commented on Rusney Castillo sweepstakes down to Red Sox, Tigers, Giants on Aug 20 2014, 2:34p
Abreau was also being talked about as a DH-type, and Castillo's projecting out as a centerfielder for most teams
Commented on Rusney Castillo sweepstakes down to Red Sox, Tigers, Giants on Aug 20 2014, 1:47p - 1 reply
And adding talent in the outfield makes it easier to part with some of the "extra" outfielders for pitching, or a third baseman.

It's possible, but I've got to believe they'll address third base some other way next season

You say that a LOT more definitively than i believe is justified...

The only two players I have any real expectations for are Rondo and Sully...
Commented on Which Celtic will underachieve this year? on Aug 20 2014, 10:37a
I saw some of that discussion; I kind of read that as being their cover story, if they managed to snag him last year
Commented on Red Sox one of 6 'serious players' for Rusney Castillo on Aug 20 2014, 8:43a
Meh... they didn't really "pick" Napoli over Abreau

We didn't miss out by much on Abreau...

Yeah, they've been about as patient with him any anyone could reasonably expect
Commented on Red Sox place six players on waivers, and why that doesn't matter on Aug 18 2014, 3:17p
How's his defense been looking, is what I want to know
Commented on Red Sox minor lines: The Cecchini that I used to know? on Aug 18 2014, 2:58p
Well, his confidence and trade value have to be pretty low right now, regardless

Nonsense; Gerald Wallace can just sit on the bench (and grumble and moan)

It'll have to be a major-league backup who's willing to be a minor-leage backup, since Swihart's going to play most games in AAA
