I think the A's overpaid here, just like they did for Jaso. Half of the return for Gio++ got you lowrie and jaso. He's Billy Beane so you never know, but I don't see it.

Jed 'the Jedi' Lowrie. I miss him too. Happy he's finally healthy and such. Happy he's with Reddick in Oakland.




Also, Pete Abraham tweeted about Lackey being the thinest he's been in years. I didn't believe it until I saw a picture and WOW. He looks like he dropped 100 pounds. Even his legs are skinny. Now THATS what I want to see. Unlike Beckett, he really took the time to diet. I can't post the pic, but if you go on Petes twitter (twitter.com/peteabe) youlll see it and be amazed.

Bogaerts is 5th overall prospect in @keithlaw top 100. Highest regarded #RedSox positional prospect since... Nomar? Rice? Lynn?

I'm shocked Lackey's catcher agreed to be that close to Bard's. I figured they'd have Bard throwing in the parking lot to be safe.

I'm honestly surprised Larry hasn't started selling replica toy trucks from truck day on the sox site by this point. It could be like baseball's answer to the Hess Truck. I can hear it now "The Sox Truck is back and like the team it's better than ever."

Do people really get choked up and sentimental on truck day? I remember Larry on Dennis and Callahan a few years back saying how much he's heard from families who love making a yearly traditional of it. I mean I know of no friends of mine in real life, or Facebook, that go to this thing.

I wish this was the kind of thing you could bet on. I bet anything this happens in the next 5 years. I'm shocked it hasn't happened already. Shocked.

Nobody cares. Ever. It's just Larry trying to make himself and the team part of the news. Biggest non-story ever.

Hopefully I didn't just give him an idea. I mean you never know. They read SOSH supposedly...

This clip sums up my feeling towards the ownership group:

Truck day went from a blurb on the news to an event. I find it silly.

5th overall is ridiculous IMO... 5th shortstop, then yeah, I agree.

Crap, if watching a bunch of nobodies loading bats and cups into a panel truck is considered exciting by media types, they would have loved watching me move an entire house last year...

I moved at night, in a rainstorm with 3 or 4 drunk buddies. It would have been fascinating TV

I dunno... a guy who posts a .948 OPS in the Eastern League at age 19 is pretty impressive.

I'd like to say he's full of ****, but when you look at how many marks.....er, people actually buy into "Red Sox Nation"TM and every other ounce of complete horse crap this group has put on sale from bricks to rain tarps, the guy might be telling the truth.

I think you might be overestimating the quality of SS prospects in the game right now.

Never been less enthused to get the season started...3rd place team IMO. I cannot wait for Bogaerts arrival though, most likely in 2014.

Wait...what? He's the best infield prospect behind Profar EASILY. I don't think you realize what this kid did as a 19 year old in high A/AA.

I think I'd be happy with third place. This team is destined for the basement.
