    What kind of league do you play in where dropping Jonathan Sanchez is a good idea?

      a point scoring system one where he is my least valuable pitcher. my team has Ubaldo, Grienke, Strasburg (DL), Tommy Hanson, Matt Cain, Cole Hamels, Clayton Kershaw, Gavin Floyd and Billy Wagner.

      so really its between hanson and Sanchez.

You can't trade him because that would mean weakening an already below-average bullpen while the team is still in contention for the wild card. Maybe if the Blue Jays weren't asking for Pedroia, Buchholz, and Lester (exaggeration, I know) for Scott Downs we could've acquired him and that would've made Papelbon expendable. However, considering we couldn't get a reliever at the deadline, Theo couldn't justify trading one of our better relievers just because he isn't a top closer.
          the fact remains that even if pedroia, martinez, etc. get healthy, we still probably won't beat the yankees even if we do beat out tampa. if paps still had any years left on his deal, this would be a non-issue, but now the team is poised to pay a guy who has slowly declined into mediocrity at the closer position one of the biggest contracts at the position if they want to keep him, which i figure theo will. especially with the possibility of a nightmare scenario where he goes to the yanks. it's also especially aggravating considering the market for relievers this off-season. the nats got wilson ramos for matt ******* capps, can you imagine what the sox could have pulled for paps?

          i guess it all depends on your view of boston's playoff chances... i think that they'll be sitting at home in october, so i thought they should have been sellers.

          • BEAT LA! Errrr, make that SWEEP LA.

            Hey Dodgers:

            The Brian Sabean sig is no more. I disagreed with you on so many levels. And then you went out and built a dynasty. I am lame.

              quoted for truth.

              Matt Cain just called me, Dodgers fans, he said you've got to pick it up.

                I doubt the Yankees go for him. I think they will go hard for both Cliff Lee and Carl Crawford/Jason Werth tho and I think they have a good shot at landing 2. If they could swing a trade for Soria, I think they would do that which would be awesome.

                    Honestly it probably is with in the realm of possibility. Don't the Tigers get a huge amount of salary off the books after this year?

                      Willis, Robertson, Bonderman, Damon, Inge, maybe Peralta, Laird and probably Magglio are all coming off the books, so there should be at least $50 million to spend. If Cliff Lee signs anywhere else, I will go off the deep end and probably be in an asylum for a while.

                                In his 5 starts the rangers have scored 1,2,3,3, and 1 runs. That's so bizarre.
