I hated Jenks. He always tried to throw like 7 pitches when you only need 2 good ones to pitch one inning.

I got an edit in there, I forgot about gems like Dice K, Keith Foulke and JD Drew.

And jenks was good for like 2.5 years on the Right Sox then fell off and the Fake Sox signed him.

Foulke was key to that WS. Drew gave them some good time and was good in the post season, especially in 2007. Dice K was bad, but I don't really know what to associate that to. It seemed like everyone and their mother thought he had an iron arm with unhittable stuff.

Drew was getting paid like 15mil a year to bat like .250 and hit like 15hrs. And was injured a **** ton.


Honestly, i think the rangers should expect Yu to end up as mediocre as Dice K was. japanese league pitching performance doesn't translate at all to MLB.

He had an average OPS of .824 for them with 2 seasons of over .900. He wasn't as bad as he was brought out to be.

Yu wasn't used nearly as much as Dice K though. It seemed like the problems he had were degradation related.

what about a high whip? He's got all the makings of a #3-4 with the cost of a #1-2.

Part of that seems like the adjustment to the game over here. He's got the stuff to be a good 2, maybe a 1, depending on who you ask.

Keep in mind, this guy is like a rookie who's played in sort of "advanced AAA".

In 8 days, the Sox have been swept by the Tigers and have gained a game overall on them. Eat **** Detroit!

Hernandez is our best pitching prospect in minors currently. Has good stuff but needs more work

#4 guy most likely at MLB level

Escobar is solid bench player who can play 3B/SS/2B

Great pickup by Sox with news that Danks could be done for year... Liriano has struggled this year but still has great stuff

Another Cooper redemption project

Since June, he's been pretty good, minus his last start... vs you guys no less. Very good pick up.

Can't really add on what BWC

I wouldn't want Escobar playing everyday if I was looking to contend, but if the Twins are looking to kill a couple of years in a rebuild than he's a cheap middle infield who can do that.

Hernandez seemed like a descent enough prospect, but I don't think he'll be missed to much.

Sale
Peavy
Floyd
Quintana
Humber
Liriano

He's like a bonus SP. If he sucks, whatever, you don't pitch him.

I really wouldn't be surprised to see them go 6 man. Would be the best thing for Sale, who's losing velocity, and Quintana.
