Yikes! Josh Lindblom does not exactly sound like a good fit for the Phillies ballpark.

The Phils have already lost every sense of home field advantage with a lineup that can’t hit the long ball. Lindblom is just another step toward moving the fences back

If the phils move the fences in anymore it will be a peewee league park

Mets moved the fences in at Citi, not back.

CBP has played pretty neutral overall ever since they moved the fences out a few years back. It still has a higher HR rate but lower 2B & 3B rates so it neutralizes out for offensive numbers.

I’m sure a guy that is a FB machine will pitch great in CBP.

Still wondering when/if Boston starts selling a couple middle relievers. Granted, they won’t be after any veterans like Victorino, but low level prospects would get a Mortenson, or Tazawa and slightly better Padilla or Albers.

They have plenty for teams like Philly who are in search of BP help and wouldn’t require much.

Philly is selling. They don’t need rental relievers.

Padilla would be the only rental. Rest of them have years of control. I understand though that they should be selling.

Yeah, I’m expecting to see a few Sox bullpen names on this site before the day is done.

Would you guys want a lot for Franklin Morales? The Pirates can use a quality LH reliever, Tony Watson isn’t cutting it.

If I’m the Dodgers I try to put a nice package together for Ellsbury with a year plus a pennant race remaining on his control. Kemp, Ells and Ethier–print playoff tickets. Make it good. How about Ells and Beckett for a package of top prospects and a starting pitcher.

They don’t have the prospects to get Pence let alone Ellsbury. Their biggest chip is the dollar sign, which will not appeal to Boston. They can get him in 2014 however.

I agree, though you can’t discount the idea of Boston dumping a bad salary or three (or simply being the middleman of a bad salary heading to LA) in order to facilitate a deal.

If they take Crawford, Lackey and Beckett, they can have Ellsbury for free!

Red Sox implementing the Joseph A. Bank sales tactic?

LF – Nava
2B – Pedroia
DH – Ortiz
1B – Agonz
RF – Ross
3B – Middlebrooks
CF – Kalish
C – Salty
SS – Ciriaco

Replace Beckett with Morales.

Team is the same, payroll is $60M lower!

$60M could get you a Hamilton, Greinke and Sanchez for example. What a waste of money, Theo made sure he left his mark on the Sox!

Not happening. Unless Boston gets a colossal return for Ellsbury he’s staying out until at least the offseason.

Vic for Lindblom is a pure salary dump. I’d rather just keep him and take the pick.

Member

only problem is in order to get the pick they would have to offer arbitration and he might except, then you’re stuck paying him about the same as Pence next year

Amaro doesnt want to pay the luxury tax.

Ethan Martin was a 1st round pick. Josh Lindblom was a 2nd round pick and is producing at the major league level. You really think you’d do better with a supplemental draft pick?

The Phils should try to take a flier on a mid 20s guy like Geison Aguasviva or Cole St. Clair and see if they get lucky and get a somewhat reliable middle reliever in the future.
