Peter Gammons Said:


If the Red Sox don't sign Bay, they'd like to sign Matt Holliday, and they have a mutually respectful relationship with Scott Boras



I thought they voved not to deal with Boras?????

Even if they felt that way secretly, they would never say so publicly. That would be dumb. And I don't recall Theo ever saying that.

Welcome to Boston, Jeremy Hermida. If you're in the starting lineup on Opening Day, we have problems.

I still can't figure out why we traded for him???? unless they plan on sending him elsewhere....

Decent pickup.

Theo said they "bought low" on Hermida, not having to pay much to get him, and he's a guy who has untapped potential. He was a former high draft pick who hasn't fulfilled that potential yet and the Red Sox think he can with us. Or something.

yeah, fine with all of that ,but where is he going to play?

Baldelli just filed for FA (along with Wagner)

Ideally our 4th outfielder would bat right handed, right..

We trade 2 guys for Hermedia, and the Twins get JJ Hardy for Carlos Gomez straight up.......unbeleivable.....I wonder if the twins trade Hardy for Hermedia?

Man, that's instilling a proper Yankee attitude at an EARLY age. I approve.
I hope we sign Bay. I really like hime. Hermida can replace Rocky, be traded for a comparable righty, or be part of a deal to get a bigger bat. Not bad for the cost

Watching Dustin Richardson pitching in the Rising Stars game for the Arizona Fall League. He gets an inning and looks good.

The players are wearing MLB uniforms with their AFL caps. Neat to see a couple of Red Sox uniforms playing baseball in November.
