.
Report out of Philly has Drew set to sin with Red Sox for 4yrs, $48 Million...so only an extra 1 mil per season, but an added year if its accurate.

So is J.D. Drew better than Johnny Damon now?

What exactly are the Red Sox planning to do with Wily Mo Pena then? Can we get Bronson Arroyo back?

Philly signed Wes Helms to a 2 year, 5.5 million dollar deal. Helms quietly hit .329 in 140 games with the Marlins last year.

He'll start and play regularly at third.

I think this will end up being our lineup:
Rollins SS
Victorino CF
Utley 2B
Howard 1B
Conine LF
Helms 3B
Coste C
Delucci RF

that's not exactly a powerhouse line up. I think even Pat the Bat would provide more protection for Howard than the 40 year old Conine (coming off a 10 HR season)

So, unless the Tigers can find a cheap, left-fielder, that hits at the top of the order, they are done for the off-season (with the exception of a Lefty out of the pen).

2007 Line-up:

CF Granderson - Good kid, I just don't see him as a lead-off guy.
2B Polanco
RF Maggs
DH Sheff
SS Guillen - Unless they have him batting 4th to give them a R-L-R
C Pudge
1B Casey
LF Monroe/Thames
3B Inge

That's not too bad.

Starting Rotation:
1. Rogers - I can't imagine him pitching as well as he did this year again, but he should eat innings.
2. Bonderman - I think he is poised for a break out season.
3. Maroth - Solid Lefty
4. Robertson - Nate is one of those guys I love. He's not a great pitcher, but he will eat innings and compete like hell
5. Verlander - I expect him to have a HUGE sophmore slump because of all the innings he threw this year (see: 2006 Chicago White Sox - All)

I'll be right there with you. Does JD get to park in the handicap spots?

you were right... so much for the return to sanity in the market.

Sports Guy on ESPN.com had this to say about the Sox:

"The Red Sox have gone in so many different directions over the past two seasons, I can't summon adequate reactions to their transactions anymore. No move seems to have any correlation to the last one. They claim they have a budget, then they toss $10-million-a-year contracts around like it's the year 2056. They claim they want to build something substantial for the long haul, then they deal quality prospects who end up thriving on other teams and keep ones who look positively terrible when they get called up. They claim to care about clubhouse chemistry, then they keep allowing popular players like Pedro, Damon, Lowe and Roberts to leave. They claim to value at-bats, on-base percentage and pitch counts, then they trade for a free swinger like Wily Mo Pena. They claim to understand which players would succeed in a baseball city as tough as Boston, then they keep bringing in players who aren't mentally tough enough to play there (Renteria, Suppan, Kim, Crisp, Clement and hopefully not J.D. Drew). They claim they don't want to overspend like the Yankees do, then they blow everyone else out of the water in the Matsuzaka bidding."

I really don't want 'Nancy' Drew on the Sox...he's a good hitter, got a decent arm, good defensive outfielder. But he's always appeared soft to me. He doesn't seem like the kind of guy who can handle a high-pressure environment like NY or Boston.

I haven't heard anything but I hope they're exploring bringing Orlando Cabrera back. Angels have Wood ready, as well as Izturis and another young SS (Aybar?), and supposedly want to move OC's contract. Maybe a Lowell/OC swap, and the Sox move Youkilis to 3B and go get a 1B?

Conine gets on base. He hit over .300 with the Phils.

Burrell never hit in any scenario where we needed him. I'd take Conine any day of the week.

soriano will hit 50 in wrigley... and strike out 180 times.

mets meanwhile are close to signing moises alou to a one year deal. i like it. i like it alot. if he's healthy and productive it gives the mets a very solid right handed run producer, which they were missing in the playoffs last year. if his age catches up to him and he's not the same, it's only a one year deal and you can dump him easily.

this also frees them up even more-so to trade lastings milledge for pitching.
