Madson better come a hell of a lot cheaper than 4/44 if they’re interested in him.  Otherwise it is the height of stupidity to let someone like Papelbon go over 1.5MM a year.

Don’t forget the draft picks the Sox get…

It was more the years. I think Madson is going to have to back off to 3 years. 3 years $30 mllion-$33 million should be enough to get it done.

I don’t think they even made Papelbon an offer. If I’m them though, I’d rather spend money than prospects.

I’d absolutely do 3 years, $30 million. It’s an overpay, but it’s not crippling.

That’s not a bad deal. Madson has not been overworked and his DL stints were really not arm related. He has done well in September and in the post season. No worth 4 years but a lot better than most people think.

The Red Sox did NOT “let Papelbon go.” For years Papelbon stated unequivocally that wanted to test the Free Agency Market. Then he jumps on the first offer made to him and rides it out of Boston like the hordes from hell were chasing him. Papelbon bolted to the Phillies giving us absolutely no opportunity to make a counter offer.

The Red Sox did NOT “let Papelbon go.” He skipped town like a thief in the night. For years Papelbon stated emphatically, unequivocally that he wanted to test the Free Agent market when the time came. Then when the time came, he jumped on the very first (and only) offer made to him and rode it out of town like the headless horseman were after him, effectively giving the Red Sox no opportunity to make a counter offer. Papelbon told his agent, “I want to play for the Phillies. Make it happen.” By the time we heard about the “offer,” it was a done deal. For all the mistakes our beloved front office has made, losing Papelbon was not one of them.

trade Scutaro. Start Lowrie until Igesias is ready and you’ve got Aviles to back up. Though I think Lowrie/Aviles is better than Iglesias personally.

What happens when Lowrie goes on the DL? 

Scutaro is better than Lowrie. Lowrie can’t stay off the DL & can’t hit right handed pitching.

“What happens when Lowrie goes on the DL? ”

I collect on the over.

How about a trade with the Braves?
Send… Reddick, Scutaro, Weiland and Bowden
Receive… Venters, Haywood and Jurrjens
No money exchanges hands…

Are you serious??? The Braves could get a haul like that with Jurrjens alone, no way that’s even considered by the Braves.

I think the Braves would throw in Haywood – you’d have to give them a minute to sign someone with that name first though.

I really don’t want Madson.

If they want a deal around Anderson then without a doubt the Sox gotta jump on that.

Is “Dunkworth” a real player?

What’s a Dunk Worth?

No but Brandon Duckworth is a real player.

Not sure. But I’m betting that and a couple of bucks will buy you a cup of coffee.

About $626K annually from what I can find. Probably not worth the stress involved unless you really like donuts.

ha I thought the same thing when I read that. Should we be referring to him as “The Scott Boras” now?

That’s entirely a matter of opinion.

“No but Brandon Duckworth is a real player”

The only reliever either closing, or masquerading as a closer last year Duckworth would bring is Kevin Gregg and The Duke would maybe just be happy to pack his bags (and salary) to be rid of him for a discard AAAA player like Duckworth.
