Topic: No Sox fan in this community?

I just noticed nothing has been posted in the Red Sox section for 2 and a half years.  That's pathetic.  Yankees Suck!

Sale being the lone exception, every pitcher Dombrowski has acquired is hurt.

Re: No Sox fan in this community?

They won't need a fifth starter until 4/9, Pomeranz thinks he'll be ready by then.

Thornburg and Smith are exhibits A and B why it's generally a fool's errand to trade for relievers in the off-season, though.

Re: No Sox fan in this community?

But is anyone confident in Pomeranz's health? I like what he can bring to the table....... assuming he gets to the table

Re: No Sox fan in this community?

I'm not confident in anything with Pomeranz...the health of his elbow, the usefulness of the stem cell injection, his ability to be effective as a starter in the AL even if he is healthy, whether the first half of last season was a Petco-fueled mirage, etc. That's a lot of question marks considering what they gave up for him, and most of them weren't tied to Preller's dirty dealing, either.

Re: No Sox fan in this community?

I mean I certainly don't expect 22-4 again, but based on how he's pitched so far in ST, I think the breakthrough might be legit. It certainly won't be the dumpster fire his first yearin Boston was. He was pretty young when he got to the majors with DET, I think he just finally put it all together last year and is coming into his prime.

Kudos to Porcello for keeping his chin up when he was getting rocked around in Detroit and his first season with the Red Sox.

I think he's real and will have a fantastic season...

with Price's elbow in question, you guys need all the healthy arms you can get.

Re: No Sox fan in this community?

I look forward to the cries of "should've kept Buchholz" from the mediots the first time ERod, Wright, or Pomegranate has a lousy outing while Price is on the DL.

So far at least, Rodriguez and Wright have pitched well, and Kyle Kendrick has had a strong spring, too. If keeping Price out the first 6-8 weeks really does mean he'll be fine the rest of the year, then they'll be OK. If he ends up missing a lot of time, things could get dicey, but I think they might have just enough depth to survive it. Any deeper than those guys, though, and we're in trouble...if anyone from the Brian Johnson/Henry Owens/Roenis Elias group is making more than a spot start, we're probably screwed.

Re: No Sox fan in this community?

u dog - elbows are tricky. my step-nephew was a star pitcher from the age of 10-15. after 2 non-tommy john surgeries on the shoulder and i think elbow, his arm was mush and he was toast at 15. the High School Football Coach was pissed bc he was going to be their starting QB too. Toast. He ended up playing CB and MLB for them instead. He never touched another baseball again.

my point--he was a healthy 15 yr old and then he was done and out of the game in the same year. I wish the best for Price, but 6-8 weeks only is a generous estimate of how long he will be off.
