Re: Putting together the 2012 Red Sox Roster: Let's help Ben Cherington!

1) You hated on Scutty for 2 years and now want him back? You sid his Toronot year was a fluke and bashed me for saying he'd have a combined 2 years at numbers between his career norm and his Totonto last year.
Scutaro contract was a mistake. Has nothing to do with reality that he practically acontrols weather he stays, unlike loser Wakefield and Varitek.2) Why would Scutty take the player option at $3M when if he doesn't he gets the $1.5M buyout and gets $4-5M elsewhere plus the $1.5? This is an epic joke.
He isn't going to get a single offer of 4-5M elsewhere. Silly to spend 1.5M when he exercises player option. Scutaro will be lucky to get an offer more than 2-3M. 3) You want Lackey back, but Wake gone... brilliant.
You moron. Lackey is under contract and untradeable. Wake is a total joke and a FA no one will want for more than a minor league contract
!4) Bard to starter: see Joba.
Two different players.5) papelbon for a 2 years deal... dream on...totally unrealistic. I knew you couldn't come up with a plan that could actually be a real plan.
Moron, I said if market was 2 year deal and detailed papelbon departure plans. In reality, 3 year 13-15M deal for Papelbon is dubious. 6) Wheeler's not taking $1M.
I never said he would, moron. I said offer him 1M. In reality, age and mileage, he might not do much better and he is from New England. You bashed Wheeler and praised Timmy T-Ball, moron. 7) You bashed Jenks and now want him as the new Bard. Wonderful!
Moron, Jenks is under InEpstein contract and zero trade value. It is called 6M! I didnt want this lard to start with, as you did. I outlined immediate contract offer to Putz. InEpstein always waited around like an idiot.8) " Low ball offers of 2 years and 16 for CJ Wilson 1 year and 10M for Buehrle, and then bluff."
Makes no sense at all. Those offers are jokes not bluffs.
No, they are low ball offers. They are designed to fake interest and bluff follow-up increase trump offers to bag idiots like InEpstein.
Buehrle is old and high mileage. Not worth risk of 2 year deal and certainly not worth a Slackey base for one year. CJ Wilson is a classic FA bust profile.
9) You Jake for Kemp deal is a fantasy $20M/2 with a 3rd year $8M with $2M buyouy
No, it is quite realistic if I was in charge. Kemp is 1 year from FA. Ellsbury is 2 years from FA.
10) Kemps a FA after 2012.
11) You called me a racist for saying we should offer Papi
making it essentially a $22M/2 year deal. Your offer is
at best $17M/2. You racist!!!!
Market and entire year makes it clear that this will retain Ortiz. It is over market and quite generous. No reason to offer 2 years.
12) Hernandez is now at the age you beagn calling Vtek too old
and his decline began. (I do like RamHern though)
No, Hernandez is not in his late 30's.
13) You used actual 2012 numbers not average salary which
is used for luxury tax figures.
I never said they were. I know CBT computation, and it is not in play for 2012
14) You do realize that to get the supp pick for VTek,
we have to offer him arbitration, which he will accept
and make about $2M in 2012 on our roster, right?
I realize that if Varitek is so sorry as not to agree to decline it, his agent had him decline, then it should not be offered.
15) Even if all you say here came true, we'd win less than '11.
Since you claimed 100 wins for 2011, I dont pay any attention to your guesses.
Needless to say, 90 wins was a joke in 2011 collapse. New management and getting rid of Wakefield and Varitek and bringing in true superstar RH slugging OFer to put next to AGon will take care of a lot of home losses in 2011.
I notice you have provided nothing on detail and total payroll. I provide details and alternatives in detail.
Just keep thinking Scutaro will get a 4-5M offer and the Twins cant afford Mauer.
You are the most constant poster, the most arrogant and the most clueless.
Im amused by Epstein's depature, right after you claimed he was "going nowhere".
Make sure to provide your detailed roster and FA offers, so you can provide comic relief.
