Cafardo On Hart, Farnsworth, Dunn, Guillen

The Red Sox' ability to plug holes in their roster following a slew of injuries can be attributed in large part to Allard Baird, according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe. After discussing Baird's importance to the Sox and listing his All-Star picks, Cafardo shares a few hot stove items….

  • The Giants are "very interested" in Corey Hart, but with Milwaukee not entirely out of the NL Central race, the Brewers haven't yet elected to become sellers.
  • Although it's unclear whether or not Boston would have any interest in Kyle Farnsworth, Cafardo thinks he could be an option for the Sox. Farnsworth's strikeout rate is down to 6.8 K/9 this season, but a National League scout opines that the right-hander's stuff is as strong as ever.
  • Cafardo speculates that the White Sox would part with a promising prospect or two in exchange for Adam Dunn, and suggests that the Braves, Giants, and Rays could be fits for Jose Guillen.
  • After being told by a couple potential suitors that they needed to see him play, Wily Mo Pena is attempting to earn another shot at the bigs by playing in the Atlantic League.
  • A friend of D'Backs interim general manager Jerry DiPoto tells Cafardo that he thinks DiPoto may not have total freedom to make moves this month: "I get the feeling the major shots will be called above Jerry. If Jerry gets a chance, he’ll do some interesting things, but we’ll see whether he’ll have some reins on him."

    If the Red Sox make the playoffs Francona should be manager of the year.

    The giants can’t afford to lose the pitching it’d take to get Hart.

    Giants need a bigger bat than Corey Hart. They need Prince Fielder.

    The Braves front office would not be foolish enough to trade for Guillen. Currently, the they are known for having great clubhouse chemistry. Guillen would destroy all of that.

    Kyle Farnsworth is the biggest BA in baseball.

    I know Jerry DiPoto when he was with the Indians and New York this guy is a true baseball man, if the D-back owner and president of the club are smart they will let him have full control and make the deals that need to be made.

    Just ask him a question about any pitcher throughout baseball history and he most likely has the answer.

    I have been lucky to call him friend and all I can say is It’s About Time ! . Good Luck and God Bless You and Your Family.
