Also, Justin Upton traded to the Braves in a 6 player deal.

Pedro Martinez returns as Special Assistant/ Ambassador as some clubs call them to Ben Cherington.

Nothing more than misdirection and a PR move by the FO. Curious how this move happens 2 days after Francona's book drops. God I hate this ownership group...

In fairness, it was just a matter of time. But this did work out pretty well timing wise for the owners.

They've been talking about bringing him in for a while, but what I find interesting is the timing of the announcement...

still holding out hope that in some miraculous twist Mark Cuban buys the team.

if morse isn't a first baseman, he's sure as **** not an outfielder. probably won't play much outfield in seattle with gutierrez, saunders and wells all being capable outfielders and still having to find somewhere for ibanez, carp and bay. i'd guess morse ends up platooning first and dh with morales.

Mets sign Marcum for 1yr/4M. A great deal for NY as Marcum is quite underrated IMO (don't get why he didn't have more suitors) and wasn't tied to any draft pick compensation. I would have loved for Boston to sign him for anywhere around that number.

We signed Ryan Sweeney to a minor league deal. Considering Kalish is having shoulder surgery again, this is a good move. Kalish hasnt been the same since he injured it the first time. Since then he's been timid in the outfield. Should of hung onto Reddick man...


But good signing Sweens again. Let's hope he doesn't punch any doors again.

We need to move on from Kalish, he's made of glass. We should have found some RF power this past offseason.....not Gomes btw.

JBJ could move to RF if we need him to.

I get that you are saying he isn't a first baseman. I have no idea what else you were trying to say.

That being said, my point was that the Red Sox must have thought he could play 1B, at a satisfactory level at least, otherwise they would not have looked into trading for him. The trade didn't happen, and now he is in Seattle. The rest of my point was that Napoli signed for one year. Someone said that that puts the Red Sox back in the same position of having no one to play first next winter. With Morse becoming a free agent after this season (like Napoli), and the Red Sox previous interest in him as a first baseman, he is an option next winter.

It doesn't seem like a great fit for him in Seattle, so I think he'll be on the market next winter for sure.

my point was had LaRoche signed elsewhere, the Nationals would've moved Morse to 1b, even before sending him to Seattle, even if the Sox had walked away from Napoli, none of us knew that the degenerative hip condition was the reason Napoli hadn't been signed, just agreed to terms on the original 3 yr deal.

So first Morse is not a 1B, but now if LaRoche had signed elsewhere, Morse would have become a 1B?

I don't see where you are going with this.

It's all about public perception rather than on the field performance. If they would realize and understand this fact, they'd see there's no need to publish nonsensical BS in newspapers and on twitter. All they have to do is field a good team that people can root for.
