    "Seriously "Dude", using "Dude" shows how the demagogue won 50% of the last national electorate. It's a droning juvenile slur."

    Since you brought up politics as you are wont to do, just a reminder that the dude won with a sophisticated on-the-ground "get out the vote" operation that triumphed over the greedy corporate interests you defend like a soldier taking your own bayonette. Though I guess I can understand why you would take it personally that the American people don't want wingnuts in charge. Oh well there is always this forum for you to deposit your political drivel in. 

    As for Ellsbury your contempt for him is irrational, but ironically enough your position on him has finally wound its way towards valid as his contract comes close to expiring. The OP is right, moving him during the season would not make as much sense. It will be interesting to see what the front office wants to do here. I'd like to see the trade before the season - but a gamble that he will have a great season again could pay off with a better haul come the deadline. I say more him sooner and send Boras packing....That said there are plenty of months before the season starts, so maybe this thread will get to 500 or so, we can only hope.

    You do realize that both Xander Bogaerts and Jackie Bradley Jr., as well as Deven Marrerro are represented by Scott Boras right? Boras isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

    Ya beat me to it carnie. Boras will be around the Sox organization for many years.

    Ells value right now could easily get us a solid return. Not a "big haul" per say, but a quality return.

    His value at the deadline, like ive said before, depends on the team who wants him and the situation they are in.

    Lets say Ellsbury is doing very good but the sox arent going to make the playoffs and a first or second place team loses their starting CF without a comparable replacement. They will lose considerable production that wont be replaced. Their need is huge and they might part with a little extra to acquire Ellsbury.

    Value depends directly to the need that team has and how great they value that need.

    If Ellsbury hits .300 with a .370obp, a near .500 slg, and some team has a big need. we will get something nice back. Its always been that way.
     Even without the comp pick a GM is looking at going far in the playoffs or possibly not making them at all and having to hear it from an angry fan base and the promotion side of things for not making a move.
