However they need a CF now, and Marte is good trade bait.
I think Crisp will be a decent fit atop the lineup.
As for Marte, who knows...he could be the next Jeff Bagwell, but then again he could be another Frankie Rodriguez.
The farm system is loaded with quality arms, so I think the future looks good on the pitching end of things, and to me thats more important, you can find a 3B if you need to, quality pitchers are a bit tougher to acquire.
So as long as they don't trade Papelbon, Lester, Delcarman, Hanson etc., I say go fo it.

Theo got his time off to tour South America with Pearl Jam, and now his batteries are recharged.

(Funny piece on channel 7 Sports Final Sunday night, repeated on 6:00 news last night explaining Theo's departure and return using live Pearl Jam clips, concluding with his return cause the Sox "can't find a better man".)

New pitching coach for the Atlanta Braves?

Mr Hot Foot himself, Rodger McDowell






I suppose he'd be better than Odibie McDowell....

There's rumors that Mota failed his physical and that the deal is on hold now...

Funny that Mota passed the Red Sox physical when the Marlins traded him here, but fails the Injuns physical.

Did the Sox take on a guy with a bum shoulder just to trade him, hoping the next taker wouldn't catch on?

He probably got damaged in shipping. I blame UPS.

Apparently Mota didn't fail, but Cleveland has concerns whether he will make it through the whole year. My guess is that Cleveland had this view all along, and are just posturing in the late hours for Delcarmen instead of Mota. I'm not sure this whole thing will end well for Boston, sure hope I'm wrong.

The Red Sox will in no way give up their four young pitchers of the future (Papelbon, Hanson, Lester, Delcarmen), so Cleveland is dreaming if they think that.

Hopefully the Matt Clement 3-way deal is back on. The sooner they can cut bait with him, the better.

Looks like the little ache signed with Oakland.

Also espn, newsday and SI have written that Piazza has had talks with the wanks, phils, padres, angels, Indians and jays.

Philly could make sense. Considering hes from Norristown. I think he could still mash in that ballpark.

If that deal went through, that would be the ultimate steal for the Red Sox.
