Antoine Walker Celtics Redux??
Ainge should make Real GM TRADE his REALITY
Boston Trade Breakdown
This Trade Passes the salary cap test!
Mark Blount7-0 C from Pittsburgh12.9 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 2.0 apg in 28.8 minutes
Brian Scalabrine6-9 PF from USC1.6 ppg, 0.7 rpg, 0.3 apg in 8.7 minutes
Celtics #1 Pick in 2005-06
Antoine Walker6-9 PF from Kentucky12.4 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 2.5 apg in 28.3 minutes
Change in team outlook: -2.1 ppg, +0.9 rpg, and +0.2 apg
Blount has picked up his play, while Antoine Walker is struggling in Miami...and the Celtics are struggling in the East. It is readily apparent that Al Jefferson isn't ready to be a go to guy, so bringing Antoine back would let him develop as the starter or 6th man, (still getting major minutes), while the Celtics compete. This would give the Heat much needed front court depth in the form of role players that won't need as many shots as 'Toine, as well as a first rounder. Will it happen? Highly unlikely, although both teams need to do something.
A more likely scenario/rumor has Antoine going to Indiana in a deal for Ron Artest.

"Tejada reiterated his trade request Thursday night to the Baltimore Sun, saying he was more upset than ever at the Orioles' lack of off-season moves.'I thought I (would) put pressure and we'll see,' Tejada said. 'What have they done? Nothing.''Next year, I want to be somewhere where they want to win.'"

Red Sox Trade Rumor Central
Hot Stove Edition

The Red Sox, according to one source, have made one of the most intriguing offers -- outfielder Manny Ramirez and starting pitcher Matt Clement for Miguel Tejada -- but several high-ranking Orioles officials remain opposed to trading the team's best player within the American League East.
-- Baltimore Sun

The Cubs apparently are no closer than they were last week to dealing Mark Prior to Baltimore for Tejada. Baseball sources said Tuesday the Cubs and Orioles have not spoken since news of the proposed deal was leaked to an Internet site last Thursday. Prior, Corey Patterson and a top prospect, believed to be left-hander Rich Hill, are thought to be part of the preliminary package.
-- Chicago Tribune

A four team internet special is being rumored by various sources, with Tejada a Red Sox, Manny a Met, Lugo and Benson, and prospects Orioles, and Matsui, Heilman, and prospects Devil Rays.
--New England Sports Hub
Palmeiro Said Not Sure Why Test Positive -
Red Sox should sign Rafael Palmeiro
Major League Minimum deal with incentives would work well for both sides. Gold glover Raffy would solve the Sox needs for a left handed hitting first baseman. An estimated 80% of major leaguers were on steroids just a few years ago, so even if guilty, he is far from alone. He deserves a chance to play and prove that he can be clean and productive.

Scrambling Sox Now Look
To Overpay for Millwood

Scouting Report:
Millwood has delicate mechanics and it doesn't take much to get him out of rhythm. When he was in Atlanta, pitching coach Leo Mazzone was able to keep him in synch, but he never developed the same kind of relationship with Joe Kerrigan in Philadelphia. While his fastball still hits 92 MPH consistently and his backdoor slider and sinker remain effective weapons, command has been a concern. In the last year and a half, he too often fell behind, raising his pitch count in the process. He's also been prone to leaving too many hittable pitches up in the strike zone.
2004 Season:
Kevin Millwood pitched his way out of the Phillies' plans in 2004. That was a crushing disappointment both for the team, which had made him the No. 1 starter for the second straight season, and for Millwood himself, who filed for free agency on the first allowable day after the World Series. He made only 25 starts, mostly due to elbow tendinitis that landed him on the disabled list. Conditioning became an issue-he never went deeper into a game than seven innings and only managed to pitch that long six times.
File Under: Compound your mistakes.
The best thing for the Red Sox to do at this juncture is to save the money that was earmarked for Johnny Damon, fill their gaping holes in center field, shortstop, and first base, keep Manny, and try and stay in the hunt until the trading deadline. By then, they will know more about Andy Marte, Dustin Pedroia, Johnathan Papelbon, and Craig Hansen, and will be able to make the smart moves necessary for a 2006 playoff run.

Johnny Damon-Yankee Quotes Of Note

It looks like it's Johnny who was actually surprised:

"How could this happen?" he asked. "Can you believe this? I told them more than a week ago that it looked like another team was getting close. It didn’t matter. They didn’t believe me."

On his conversation with Terry Francona:
"He was choked up about it. He said, 'I used to know who I was going to pencil in every day. I don't have that one player who can go out night in and night out.' He's going to miss that. It means a lot when a manager calls you up and says he doesn't know what he's going to do."

On the state of Red Sox Nation:

"That team is dismantling. I'm sure it's going to be crushing because I meant a lot to those fans."

Asked if he had been influenced by the Red Sox front-office shuffling and the player exodus:
"It's something I definitely thought about, but what really opened my eyes was their first initial offer a month after the season."

"When he got Boston’s first offer, he knew then there was a possibility he could leave. That offer put him in a difficult position. You hear three for $27 million -- it was basically not a raise. It was something that really changed his feelings about Boston." -Scott Boras

Damon's dad: Red Sox made 'big' mistake: "'Mark it down: It's going to be another Babe Ruth,' Jimmy Damon told The New York Daily News. 'They sent Johnny off just like they sent off Babe Ruth. It's going to be another big, big mistake. They made the biggest mistake of their lives.' "

Boston You're No Longer My Home

Damon Looks Good In Pinstripes
Rock Star Leaves 'Em Laughing at New York Press Conference,

It has become increasingly clear that the Yankees are still the model franchise. Tradition and continuity extends beyond ownership and to the roster. Players leave New York too, but don't get smeared on the way out, and often return home for another Yankee term-See Tito, Sierra, Stanton to name a few recent examples. As painful as it is, we must acknowledge the Yankees for being the class organization that they are.
Henry and the Undynamic Duo get lucky enough to win it all in 2004, and proceed to insult players and fans alike; This team has been awkwardly, chaotically, and unprofessionally dismantled. Bridges have been burned. What a joke.

D-Backs looking to ship Glaus to Red Sox
Yankees Pay $34 Million In Luxury Tax, Red Sox $4 Million
Did lowering the payroll have anything to do with the inaction on the Damon front? This needs to be watched carefully over the next 12 months...
-Red Sox Henry Debt Load Hub
“It’s just disappointing, man — it seems like the fricking wheels are falling off,” said the 28-year-old pitcher. “Personally, I want to stay with the Red Sox but this could mean that I’m the pitcher who would have to go to another team if they need another center fielder. I’m just hoping we can get (outfielder) Dave Roberts (of San Diego) for David Wells to alleviate that.”
-Bronson "The Dude" Arroyo

Oh Henry! Don't Blame Johnny-Sox Fans-Low Talking, Absentee Owner passes on the last shot:

The Hot Dog Man Was Right About these owners all along...

" Damon's super agent, Scott Boras, explained the last-ditch effort to keep his client in Beantown:

"I called (Red Sox principal owner John Henry) and said, 'John, I wanted to call you, you're the owner of the team, it's important to let you know that we are in a position to do something with another team, something's about to be done and if you have a five-year proposal, now is the time to come forward.He said he would have to talk to his people and I told him that I was not calling to negotiate but to let him know what was happening."

Boras said he placed that call to Henry somewhere between 7 and 8 o'clock Tuesday night. Approximately an hour and a half later, Boras heard from co-GM Jed Hoyer. When Hoyer informed him the call was not about Damon, Boras had an excellent idea the Sox would not be making any last-minute moves to sweeten their four-year offer worth $10 million a year. Between 10:30 and 11 o'clock, Boras and the Yankees had wrapped up their talks. "

At yesterday’s press conference at Fenway Park, team president and CEO Larry Lucchino said the Red Sox told Damon’s camp the Sox’ four-year offer, first made on Dec. 6, would expire on Christmas Eve if the sides could not reach an agreement.

Boras indicated he was unaware of such a deadline.

“I hear there’s a letter waiting for me at home, where I haven’t been in awhile,” said Boras. “John Henry did ask me if I got the letter.”

All along, said Boras, he had been telling teams that Damon was looking for an annual average salary that fell between J.D. Drew’s $11 million and Carlos Beltran’s $17 million. The Red Sox never reached that range. The Yankees did.

As far as the suddenness of Damon’s decision, Boras said, “The reality of it is, everyone in this process had two months to get involved. None of this was a quick decision for anybody.”

-Let's see Larry Lucchino spin his way out of this one. Henry and his headless henchmen simply dropped the ball...A year ago last offseason, when they could have locked this guy up for a Tek-like extension-$30 over 3 years. Here at the Hub, we're not mad at "The Trio" anymore for giving away our star players...We actually feel sorry for them, as it looks like their responsibilities have moved beyond their maximum capacities...they appear best suited for government work.

"That said, the 2006 Red Sox look like an 84-78 squad with a management team that is playing rotisserie baseball. The Sox still can go out and get players, but there seems little regard for how they fit together. And until we learn otherwise, there is simply no way to know that Mark Loretta and Mike Lowell can shine in Boston, that Julio Lugo or Coco Crisp is coming (or that they, too, can succeed), that Kevin Youkilis can play every day or that Keith Foulke can close again.

Yes, Johnny be gone.

And the Sox be in trouble.

"Oh my, unexpecting Sox president Larry Lucchino replied when asked what message he might deliver to fans frustrated by this most tumultuous of offseasons. "I would acknowledge that this is a setback in terms of our short-term (goals), but to keep the faith."

Like the Bible says:

Blessed are those who believe and have not seen. "

Yankee Doodle Johnny



Ben?? Jed??? Larry?? Bueller??

The Red Sox front office simply needs to be a lot more proactive and smarter. While I agree that the Sox shouldn't pay Damon that kind of dough, continuing to lose our key players on the open market is a symptom of a fatal flaw that exists within this front office.

Once again, the Sox waited to genuinely and sincerely negotiate with a player until he reached the open market (Low ball, token offers don't count), and the result was predictably disasterous for the Olde Towne Team.In ALL cases, this ownership group has either had to pay more than they would have if they had just locked the guy up the year before his deal expired(See Tek), scramble to overpay another team's free agent to make up for the loss of their own (See Error Renteria), or simply lost the player with nothing to show for him (See Pedro, Lowe, etc.).
Hey, they even did it to their hero G.M..

Dan Duquette was ripped for exactly the same thing when Clemens and Vaughn walked and left the Sox with nothing in return. In most cases, it simply makes no sense to wait; sign 'em or deal 'em. This isn't the NFL; draft picks don't come close to being any significant return. This team tried to hire Billy Beane; Even with much less leverage due to a limited payroll, Billy is able to get value back for his soon to be free agent stars. The Sox F.O. could learn a lot from him.

Shank Shaughnessy-West Rips Nomar In His Introductory Press Conference

"When I suggested to Garciaparra it appears he's on the downward side of his career, he disagreed, saying he wouldn't have been in demand if that was true."No one wanted you to play shortstop," I said, "which would indicate you've lost something," and once again he disagreed, saying several teams wanted him to play shortstop."Name them," I said, and he declined.Garciaparra then told the media that when he walked through the Dodger clubhouse looking at the names above each locker, he concluded this team can win the World Series. I guess they've already taken down Jason Phillips' name plate.

I asked him to repeat that just to make sure he's not some kind of practical joker, and he did — like he really believed it — so I asked him what would he know about winning a World Series?He said he won a World Series, the one the Red Sox won three months after they traded him to the Cubs — although the record shows Boston went 56-46 with Garciaparra, and 42-18 to finish the regular season after trading him.In fact when the Red Sox traded Garciaparra, Boston Globe columnist Dan Shaughnessy wrote, "Thank the baseball god, he's gone. We no longer have to watch Garciaparra pretend he cares about the fortunes of the Red Sox. … He had to go. He was more miserable than any athlete I have ever seen."Jeff Kent and Garciaparra on the same team — yeah, this is going to be fun...

(I have a feeling Kent is going to catch a break this season, as I'll probably be spending most of my time trying to cut through Garciaparra's baloney.)"

Nomah- Bargain or bust:
"Just about everybody I've talked to in the game thinks that Garciaparra still can hit, as long as he's healthy. To his credit, Nomar has an admirable history of fighting back. After his wrist injury limited him to 21 games in '01, he had two straight good years. Injuries kept him out of 81 games in '04, but he still hit .308 when he was healthy.
Last year, before the groin injury, he was hitting just .157. After he returned to the Cubs' lineup, in early August, he hit .318 the rest of the way, with nine homers and 26 RBIs in 179 at-bats."

Corgan Cherington Looks "Smashing"

"Renteria, 30, acknowledged he wasn't prepared for the negative reception from Boston fans.

'This was my first time,' he said of the boos from the home-team supporters. 'I didn't know how to handle it. ... Nobody likes to get booed. You see me play, I always start slow. Maybe the fans didn't know anything about me.'

In a Sunday telephone conversation with a Boston Globe reporter, Renteria acknowledged that he 'wanted out of Boston,' but not because of the fans or his comfort level with the American League, which he said increased as the season progressed. Rather, he cited the Fenway infield, which he said contributed to his error total.

'It's one of the main reasons why I didn't feel comfortable,' he said. 'I worked a lot last year to feel comfortable and just couldn't.'"

''The Sox are so PR conscious that if there's an outcry, maybe they'll bring him back,' said the site's co-creator Steve ''Dakota' Happas, an equity options trader from Braintree. ''Sure, there was some bit of bad blood when he left, but maybe enough time has passed.' Happas started the site with his friend John Fanning, a huge Sox fan who bought the domain name way back when. As a courtesy, Happas said, he spoke with Nomar's uncle Victor Campos before launching the site. ''He didn't rule [a return] out,' said Happas.
