In response to Ice-Cream's comment:
I think Brett Anderson will be back from the DL for the A's. Even if Bartolo Colon gets suspended, I think the A's will stay put.
As for the Red Sox, I do not want them to pursue Cliff Lee. I want the Red Sox to hold onto their top prospects that will help the club a lot down the road. Do NOT go all-in with a 35-year-old who is owed a lot of money (Cliff Lee).
Sometimes the best moves are the ones you do not make.
Lee is American League tested and has beaten good teams in that division. Not all prospects are success stories. Remember Brian Rose, Eric Hetzel, Rey Quinones, Jeff Ledbetter, Ken Ryan, vaugh Eshelman. I remember all these guys in the Red Sox farm system. There are more failures than success stories.
Oh, and I had tons of these guys' rookie cards, all stored nicely within individual sleeves, tucked gently into boxes, with the anticipation of the future $$$ I was going to reap.....
Now, my sons use the cards to draw on or place in stacks based on pose and action stances. Good for recycling is all they are!
