Forget Beltran, Get Me This Guy


The All-Star game is behind us and now it is time to look towards the MLB trade deadline.  Theo has made it clear that he will be looking for an OF bat prior to July 31 and if I had my choice that guy would be Hunter Pence.  Pence may not be as sexy of a name of as Beltran, but let’s face it, Beltran is a stiff. It has been reported that the Mets would eat a good portion of the money owed to Beltran but are looking for a top prospect in return, the Astros have also said they would have to be “overwhelmed” to deal Pence.  Neither guy will come cheap, but if Theo could land Pence he could be the solution in RF for years to come. read more

What Red Sox player are you most like?

So Boston.com has this on the site today. Basically you answer a bunch of questions and they tell you what Red Sox player you are most like. I’m not really upset with the answer, I love Carl Crawford, but is Boston.com taking a swipe at him here? “Even if it arrives slower than you’d like.” Haha, this guy was one of the best outfielders in the league when he was 22 years old. Hell he made it to the Majors at age 20. Also he was offered like 20 scholarships. Could of played Basketball at UCLA or played football in college, but he chose to play MLB, all by the age of 18. I’d say his success came pretty damn fast. This year? Not so much. Guy needs to get it together. His success couldn’t arrive fast enough at this point, but I don’t think this is helping anything. read more
