Red Sox Offseason Blueprint

Postby 5TOOLER » Thu Oct 14, 2010 2:37 pm

since you all asked:

let papi/beltre/lowell/tek/ lugo come off the books and save $40 mill

keep the payroll at $170 mill and roll out this lineup:

1. ellsbury - cf
2. pedroia - 2b
3. carl crawford - lf 7/133
4. youk - 3b
5. victor - dh 3/40
6. derrek lee - 1b 1/11
7. drew - rf
8. lowrie - ss
9. john buck - c 2/10

bench:
scutaro - if
cameron - of
salty - c
nava/mcdonald/patterson/etc compete for last spot - utility

1. lester
2. clay
3. beckett
4. lackey
5. dice

closer - paps
8th - bard
lefty - scott downs 3/13
righty - jj putz 2/9
lefty - felix doubront
righty - justin duchscherer - minor league deal
righty - wake (should tell him to hang em up)
righty - atchinson or 8 other guys just like him (bowden, etc)

at the end of next year:

let paps, drew, derrek lee, cameron, scutaro walk saving $45 mill

have kalish replace drew in rf, iglesias replace scutaro, reddick replace cameron, bard close instead of paps (putz in 8th), and use the extra $40 mill to go after one of the free agent 1b: albert pujols, adrian gonzalez, prince fielder

Carl Crawford's arm makes Johnny Damon look like Ichiro. pass.
Why not throw Kalish out there full time.
Derrek Lee, another pass. Injury prone washed up 1B don't do anything for me.
Prince Fielder. Pass. Solo HR hitting whales do nothing for me either. Theo will get creative, fall in love with someone with a great OPS and trade 3/4 of the farm system for him while Cashman swoops in for Cliff Lee.
