[QUOTE]If Ortiz wins arb and is cut for any number of reasons on one of the drop dead dates-- Don't count out Youk going to the Cubs or to the A's--Beane still loves the "Greek God of Walks" Youk or Lav becomes the DH Aviles plays left with CC out Iggy plays SS and Punto plays 3 b Opening Day Sweeney in RF The other moves: Jenks goes to the Cubs and the Sox get Byrd. The Sox trade for Gavin Floyd or they trade with the Braves for JJ and Prado. Sorry that's more than three... Let's play baseball!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow, what a lineup MadMc has left behind with all this:
CF Ellsbury - he'll be gone soon too I'm sure
3B Punto - A Utility player now full time at 3B
LF Aviles - another Utility player now in LF until Crawford returns
C Saltalamacchia - the jury is still out on him
RF Byrd/Sweeney - How many question marks, I'll say 5 ??????
SS Iglesias - banjo hitter who may not reach the Mendoza line, but he'll look good fielding
DH Lavarnway - another player that the jury is still out on.
All this to add Oswalt or Jackson and then give up the farm for Floyd??
Holy Crap -- it's let's hope the first 3 hitters can average 3 runs every 2 at bats, because that's about all they'll get with this lineup!!
I am amazed how many 'so-called' Red Sox fans just want to burn the team to the ground in their efforts to try to improve, but more appropriately, demolish it?
