    Kyle Lohse

    Rotoworld is citing Jim Bowden as saying the Red Sox make the most sense for Kyle Lohse.

     

     

    Apparently the logic is that the Sox are short of aging pitchers heavily dependant on defense and luck.

     

    Lohse will not come to the AL unless he gets the money he wants, which is unlikely in February.  Look for him to take a one year deal in the NL with hopes of re-establishing his market value.  If he is smart, he will go to San Diego. 

     

    But really, I would expect Philadelphia to make more sense.  After the Big Three, the Phillies figure to be using Kyle Kendrick and Tim Cloyd in their rotation, and this is not a team that is rebuilding, but is in a very competitive division...

    Grabbing another good starter could be the difference in our division.

    But spending $14M on a marginal upgrade from Lackey to Lohse means we can't improve anywhere else.

    Lohse does not strike me as an upgrade.

     

    He puts too many balls in play, and far too many line drives.    How he kept his ERA under 3.00 last year was one of the greatest tricks since Harry Houdini.

     

    He also turns 35 this year and is looking for 4 years, although he might take 3 at this point.  He might take one year for now, but doubtful he attempts to rebuild value in the AL.

    Also, apparently Jim Bowden hasn't  been paying attention to the Sox offseason at all.  The Sox weren't willing to part with a draft pick all winter, so I highly doubt they are going to start with a guy like Lohse, especially when their rotation seems set already, barring injury. 

    Farrell said on Thursday that they're going to stretch out both Morales and Aceves this spring for depth to go along with De La Rosa, Webster and Wright.  Farrell couldn't stop talking about how he thinks Wright could be the surprise of the season, featuring a hard knuckler that is similar to R.A. Dickey.  I'm sure they are still looking at rotation depth on Minor League deals, but I don't see them giving any kind of guaranteed deal to a starter at this point...

    You make a great point Joe, I also have my doubts as to how well Lohse would do in Boston.  We could be looking at another bad signing.  I would still rather see us trade for another young pitcher to come up with Barnes and company.

    He had this odd habit of collecting other  teams' failed top prospects and hoping they would pan out.  None ever did...

    Re: Kyle Lohse

    No other AL East team has had their names connected with Lohse either.  There must be a reason because only Tampa probably has enough starting pitching to not need to consider one of the "top" free agent starters of this year's class of free agents.

    I agree with notin that he would be smart to sign a one year deal with San Diego and then look to be a free agent again next winter.

    Baltimore has been connected, but only mildly...

    ya no thanks on lohse. we already have lackey and dempster, no need for any more aging pitchers. Also, one guy to watch is rubby de la rosa, he could push for a rotation spot this spring, the kid has talent and if he dominates spring training he should get a shot.

    Unless you guarentee him a rotation spot, we have no use for this guy. That, and I dont think Fenway is a good place to establish his value...

    Sounds Like Jim Bowden again is very interested in getting GM job of RS? Why else would he endorse giving up that draft pick for a 35 yr old RH pitcher to a deal, when no one else is? Don't go for it Ben C.

    The only way Lohse will get a multi-year deal is if a team loses a starter now or during spring training and then that team is desperate for a starter.

    All for Rubby if he shines in spring.   Who goes to the pen or gets traded when and if he takes spot in rotatrion?

    They'll start with lester, Buch, Doubie, Lackey and Dempster barring injury. I dont think it matters who shines in ST as far as other pitchers. Those should be the starting 5. I think they want RDLR to get some more innings under his belt before bringing him up. Even if there is an injury I think Morales or Aceves will be looked to first. Of course that is unless DLR is just unstoppable in AAA. But look for the other 2 first...
