    Unfortunately he's out of options. He's a 20 HR potential guy and fits the need 1 b, LF, LH bat with power. The Sox will run into problems if Papi and /or Nap can't answer the bell; Carp has been rumored for a while.

    In response to softlaw2's comment:

    If he costs near zero and can be sent to minors at anytime. So, no, the Sox should not claim him.



    What?

    Since Carp was DFA'd, he is still with the Mariners, pending re-assignment, trade or waivers.

    The Sox would need to trade for him at this point, but the return should be a mid-tier prospect if they do want this kid.

    Keep in mind they'd have to add him to the 40 man roster here which means someone else would be DFA'd on our side or sent to the Mariners in the trade.

    I think if Sox make trade for Carp, Sox will simply put Kalish on 60 DLs thus creating an open spot for Carp.

    The Mariners would be unlikely to take back in trade a player who needs to be placed on the 40-man roster. Mike Carp was DFA'd only to make room for lefthander Joe Saunders on Seattle's 40-man roster (and because Carp is out of options).

    Seattle might be interested in a player such as Boston outfield prospects Keury de la Cruz and Manual Margot, who would not need to be placed on the 40-man roster.

    In response to softlaw2's comment:

    Stay away from Carp unless he becomes an unrestricted FA and agrees to a minor league contract. He's out of options and is set for the arbitration clock. As bad as the Mariners are, they know what they are doing when they decided to take out their recent trash.



    Or it could do with the fact they have two 1bmen already. He isn't becoming a FA, 1 because he will be demoted to AAA if he clears, and 2 he won't clear waivers. I see in that two weeks away, you still didn't become knowledgable about MLB.

    I said "unless he becomes a FA".  I see making captious comments and posting blather extrapolated from Googling doesn't make you knowledgable about MLB or the merits of dumpster diving in Seattle.



    Follow it through, clown. If he clears waivers, it means nobody wants hin on their 25 man roster. That doesn't mean much for your "blather" about him needing to "agree to a minor league contract" as an "unrestricted FA".

    He agrees or retires. 

    (BTW, Carp is still pre-arb, so his "arb clock" is not ticking yet. It might be nice to get at least even one small part of a post correct.)

    I will tell you one 95% of things I post here comes from reading and retention. I recieved a History degree at one point of my life and is a bit of a requirement to be successful. You should try reading and retention sometime.

    He can't even remember what he wrote in a post written 5 minutes earlier, he confuses posters with others, and at times, forgets who's moniker he is writing under.

    Follow it through, Stooge. I said "unless he becomes a FA and agrees to a minor league contract", and you pontificate by repeating some cut and paste narrative extrapolated from someone else from he CBA. You, of all people, trolling by and injecting an angry rant from an insecure imbedded Board shill.

    Carp is out of options, has over two yeas, and is approachng the last 3 years of service arbitation, you bugaboo injecting captious stooge. The Mariners have designated him as trash. 

    And your guy Overbay is what? Filet Mignon?

    I didn't repeat some CBA narrative, I cut and pasted from your own jibberish. Here's an example:

    "If he costs near zero and can be sent to minors at anytime. So, no, the Sox should not claim him.  "

    Does this really make sense to you? Tell us just what this means. Your first sentence isn't even a sentence.

    (Try and answer the question instead of responding in "captious blather".)

    Why don't we just trade them Mortenson for Carp and call it a day.
