    Lowrie would be a nice fit for the Giants!

      Perhaps, to keep their medical staff occupied.

      Lowrie & a prospect for Kung-Fu Panda?

    • start_wearing_purple 4 years ago

      Cain available?

      Ok, while that was sarcasm could you envision a Cain/Youk swap? Obviously require more pieces and some logisitics. Boston would need a short term third baseman, the Giants would need to figure out if Huff could be sold for more than pennies on the dollar or if he could spend more time in the OF… But it would give Boston the pitcher they need and the Giants weren’t exactly known for their on base skills last season.

        I can’t imagine Youk with an NL team.

        Seems like he’s been injured about 4000 times in the past two or three years.

    Whats the going rate for Lowrie? Cheap inconsistent middle reliever?

  3. Lowrie + low level prospect to Tigers for Porcello.  Tigers need to fill holes in the infield and the Sox need a #5.  Tigers would then sign a #4/5 pitcher and bring up Turner.

      Everyone in this thread is horrendously overstating the trade value of Jed Lowrie

      • chico65 4 years ago

        I’m simply amazed that we’re 16 posts in at the time I am typing this and no one, as of yet, has made an offer of fried chicken or beer for him…

      • Oilcanoworms 4 years ago

        Jed is a good player. Yes, he’s been hurt some, but he’s solid in the field and with the bat.

    • As long as that “low level prospect” is the 5 top prospects in the Sox farm system…

      • 5 top prospects for Rick Porcello?  And your calling another proposal crazy?

        • I countered one ridiculous proposal with one that is slightly less ridiculous…

          • Are we really arguing levels of ridiculousness now?  Humans are doomed.  Both proposals were dumb, no one wins.

          • Lookouts400 4 years ago

            Humans aren’t doomed, at least not yet.  But, if someone signs Manny Ramirez…..

    Maybe the Braves really are going to give Pastornicky the job.  I wouldn’t blame them, the options at SS are expensive and Pastornicky will either do the job, or you can mid-season trade for a SS.

    Jed Lowrie can rake when given the opportunity, just so happens when he gets an opportunity he gets hurt…   Maybe the Sox can sell Lowrie as a 2b to the Marlins and flip him and a few prospects for Hanley….   Wishful thinking…

    I think Johnson would be a great fit with the Cards

    • Lookouts400 4 years ago

      Johnson would be a great fit for a lot of teams.  Who do you send east?

      • sam_lammert 4 years ago

        why would you have to send anything east?

        • Lookouts400 4 years ago

          You said Johnson, and I’m guessing you mean Jim Johnson, would be a great fit for the Cardinals. I hope you don’t think the Orioles will just give him away.  Who do you send to Baltimore in exchange for Johnson?  I didn’t think that was that hard of a question.

          • sam_lammert 4 years ago

            wow, i don’t remember why i posted it on this thread, it doesn’t make much sense…i was referring to kelly johnson…odd

          • Lookouts400 4 years ago

            I was referring to the relief pitcher, Jim Johnson, who was mentioned in the headline.  I never even thought about Kelly Johnson, though I agree, he would be a nice fit for the Cardinals.  And for the Orioles, too.  Anyway, my bad.

          • sam_lammert 4 years ago

            haha no my bad, i don’t even know why i commented about him, he wasn’t mentioned, but like you said about jim, kelly would be a great fit for a lot of teams

    Callapso for Lind and/Or Drabek?

    • Fstuffup 4 years ago

      Seriously? That is the most stupid trade ever

    • pretty big difference between the “and Drabek” and “or Drabek.” Plus the angels really don’t need another 1B DH type.

  8. I can’t imagine why anyone would have interest in Callaspo…

  9. NYBravosFan10 4 years ago

    ummmm…good to know? Didn’t even know we were connected with Lowrie.

    • dc21892 4 years ago

      It’s most likely come up before when JJ was rumored to be on the block.

  10. I like Callaspo too. What’s not to like? The question is how much would the angels ask in return.

    • Jose_Bautista 4 years ago

      If he comes cheap, I don’t mind it.

      Definitely don’t want to give up a good prospect for him.

      • johnsmith4 4 years ago

        At presents, Jerome Williams and Brad Mills appear to be Angels 4th & 5th starters with about $12m left in their budget.  McGowan Litsch or Villanueva might get AA Callaspo.  At worst, Brett Cecil.

    hey rays, good luck getting bowled over for upton!

  12. Ryan The Braves Fan For Life 4 years ago

    He would fit the Braves needs

    Did you just compliment yourself on your own trade proposal?
