    Thanks Ben for putting $178 million of useless contracts in place to block his progress.

    How so?

    He's not ready yet, and Hanley's going to be DH'ing next year. If anything the coast is going to be clear as day.
    We miss you Mike.

    For the reasons UserName cited, (Sam) Travis is not blocked.

    Pablo, Hanley, Shaw, and Travis --Four players for three positons (1B, 3B and DH). Someone is blocked, but hey if you want to exonerate Ben for the $178 million of contracts, it is your choice.

    Is it the money or the roster jam? Because if it's the money, sure, if it's the roster jam, DD has made it clear that the superior players will play. That's why Shaw will start at 3B come opening day. It's a non-issue.
    We miss you Mike.

    Plus Tarvis should be in MiLB for about a full season. By which time Hanley will be a a full time DH.

    Of course Travis may totally tear it up and be promoted this August. At least for a cup of Joe.
    "Hating the Yankees like it's a religion since 94'" RIP Mike.


    "It's also a simple and indisputable fact that WAR isn't the be-all end-all in valuations, especially in real life. Wanna know why? Because an ace in run-prevention for 120 innings means more often than not, a sub-standard pitcher covering for the rest of the IP that pitcher fails to provide. You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."

    I never said anything about exonerating Ben for those contracts. Once again you read things that aren't there at all.

    Once again, you argue in a nonresponsive manner to a post of mine .

    The Red Sox have already demonstrated that they're willing to play Shaw over Panda. There's simply no reason to be concerned about Sam Travis's progress being blocked. Especially when he hasn't even played AAA ball yet.
