In response to craze4sox's comment:
If you guys ever read this board, or just hear it from a friend here is a suggestion. Dempster, Capuano, Jackson, Harang and all the other 7th and 8th starters, or rehab cases you may have in mind will not help this club. Neither will Doubront, Morales or Lackey because they are all basically 5th, 6th, and 7th starters on most teams.
Get someone who hasn't blown out his arm, is younger than 32 and can be an ace on this staff. At the very least trade a couple youngsters for a top pitching prospect. Otherwise just throw in the towel next season because even Josh Hamilton won't be enough to make us a contender.
Our fans pay good money to support this team, you should show us a little gratitude in return while we are all still willing to purchase tickets.
who would you suggest?? king felix?
If we signed Hamilton, I would entertain offers for just about anyone on the farm for Felix, other than Barnes and De La Rosa. But there are others like Linescum, Sanchez, Walker, Hultzen and Marcum who are, or could eventually be better than the ducks we are looking at. I really don't care if its another top prospect, or 1rst, 2nd or 3rd starter who can still throw a ball and not need crutches.
Sorry, but names like Dempster, Capuano and Harang don't look any better to a sox fan than Penny, Glavine, Cook and others who have come and gone.
