The Newark Star-Ledger is reporting that the Sox are working on getting Carlos Lee from Milwaukee. Not sure what they would have to give up for him, but I'd probably do a trade that includes Hansen (I am sure that the Brewers would be asking for Hansen or Lester, as every other team has)...as long as you sign Lee to an extension (as he is a free-agent at the end of the year).
Another thing this does is makes someone like a David Murphy a huge trading chip, and you are now free to move Nixon without RSN going insane. Does it also make Wily Mo a trading chip with the Nationals?
By the way, I don't want Abreu on the Sox. I wouldn't care if the Yankees got him in a trade. He's not worth the money.
Why are the Sox so hot on the trail of Lugo? Is it because they will have to (now) probably pay a lot of money to Gonzalez to resign him? Are they thinking they pick up some bat and lose some fielding for less $$$ with Lugo?
Lieber or Lidle? The Sox and Yankees were both scouting in Philly. Lidle had a great outing last night, but I think I'd want Lieber. He's proven himself in the AL East. Not sure I'd give up too much for him.
With all this trade talk heating up, and the Sox not having struck a deal for pitching already, I have to think they have great faith in Wells coming back and being as effective as he's always been. Maybe that's why there is more talk about adding another bat.
Just a little trivia...The Sox are better in almost every offensive category when compared to last year's team. Incredible...
Foulke set to return. I would take him over Seanez or Tavarez. I also can't see them sending down Hansen or Delcarmen. Could this mean that Rudy or Julian get shipped to Colorado (who seem to love them for some reason)?
