Trot On The Block? No. Please!

This is what has me upset. The talk of Trot being traded, and soon. Nuts! Looney. Pick your adjective. Here's a dictionary. The heavy one. Unabridged...5 pounds. Boomer is back anyday, and Wakey will be back in 20 days. With off days, the need for a 5th starter is minimal, and Snyder is OK for that period. Is Jon Leiber worth the price of the best right fielder Fenway has known in the recent past? No way, no how, not in this month, or any month this season. I had to get that off my chest! Thanks.
You see, it does not take much to get me upset. I'd love to hear your thoughts. Please. Today. Before something foolish might happen.

Wow..I get the drift, but it won't happen, not with the prospect of Wily Mo playin' right. Gabe? The only one who can patrol that sacred region. So maybe if we're that desperate...are we????

Okay, I like Trot and he has served us well. But if we can get something good in return I say let's do it. This will be his last year anyway. No way he'll be back in 2007.

I really like the defense that Trot brings but we could use some more oomph in the offense area.

I'd rather see Gabe playing right than Willy Mo.

i agree with Jonathan. If he's going anyway, why not get something in return. I read somewhere that Jon Lieber could be in this deal which doesn't make much sense to me.
Trot is one of two players (Varitek's the other)who are still with the Sox from the lineup of my first Fenway Park games in June 1999.

Sorry Peter, I read about Jon Lieber in your post! Brain's fuddled from watching the first few innings of last night's game live at 4 a.m.!

well i guess i will take the minority stance here. Trot has been with the Red Sox his whole career. he has explicitly made clear his wish to finish his career in Boston. so many players take heat for not being loyal to a team & just following the paychecks to the highest bidder. here we have a player who has been professional & truly has red running in his veins. he plays his heart out every time he takes the field. and he WANTS to stay with the organization. how do you not show him the respect of letting that happen? i am absolutely disheartened by this. if they want to trade away some players that have no value, how about packaging up some Tavarez & Seanez and cutting THEM loose?

Pretty simple- the Sox are in the business of winning games, not doing baseball players favors that may be to the detriment of the team.

If you can get something that helps you for Nixon, who will absolutely not be back here next year, there's no reason not to do it. Pena won't be great in RF, but he'll suffice. His struggles there were blown way out of proportion.

So great to hear from you Tim..hi to Erin...and Wily Mo in right? I hope it doesn't come to that. No matter what, we have to take 2 of 3 in every series. No more of Tito's giving up games to save a pitcher. It's turning as dark as it is in the jungle of the Lost island...t'storms...so I will turn off this infernally great computer. Thanks for reading...you're still bookmarked...that will never change!
