    Good call on this guy, moon -- you scooped Bradford... who wrote today: "A guy like Josh Lindbloom -- the 32-year-old pitcher who last performed in the majors in 2014 but has been rejuvenated in the Korean Baseball League -- would normally be an intriguing option for the Red Sox' rotation's final spot. But he will cost money, and that doesn't line up with the Sox' current world."

    Although I won't be surprised if the owners ultimately decide to pay the tax and go for it again. Especially, like Elk said in the other thread, if the tax itself is going to be reset in a few years...

    If Lindblom is too expensive, maybe they grab the surprisingly available Zack Brown in the Rule 5 draft. Of course, Milwaukee probably had a good reason for not protecting him and it might be a case of getting what you pay for...

    If we dump Price and JBJ, we can more than afford Lindblom and several others like him or even slightly more expensive.

    The problem with Brown is that he wants to bring his entire band with him. I don't see that as being a bad thing. At least we would know he's going to be entertaining even if he can't pitch.

    Well played. I wanted to do a joke like that, but my few quick thought felt too cumbersome...

    Rick Porcello has a 3-year offer but inclination seems to be to fo a 1-year deal and reset. Very dependable pitcher. Has qualified for 11 straight era titles (162 plus innings)


    My crystal ball says Big D Ricky P ain't walking back through that door.
