    Interesting. That seems a bit out of left field. I wouldn't be surprised to see them make a dea for a bat using Buchholz as the primary bait -- perhaps for Miguel Cabrera.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    No way they pay Lackey $17M a year in order to trade Buchholz for a guy who makes $20M? a year.

    I think the Dice K project has finally worn out. I think you will see a rotation of Beckett, Lackey, Lester, and Buckholtz with Dice K and Wakefield being the swing guys.

    Adrian Gonzalez is more likely.

    Adrian Gonzalez is the target I believe, not Miggy.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    As a part-time BoSox fan (my AL team), I like it. Anything to foil the Yanks.

    I think 5 years is a bit much for a SP, especially one with past health problems.

    Or maybe Adrian Gonzales:

    One rival GM theorizes that if the Red Sox sign free-agent right-hander John Lackey, they then will lock up righty Josh Beckett long- term and trade righty Clay Buchholz in a package for Padres first baseman Adrian Gonzalez.

    Under that scenario, first baseman Kevin Youkilis would move to third and the Sox would employ a Mike Cameron-Jeremy Hermida type platoon in left.

    The Sox's big investments would be Lackey and Beckett; Gonzalez will earn a club-friendly $4.75 million next season, and his deal includes a $5.5 million club option for 2011.

    Cameron in serious talks with Red Sox on two-year deal. CF or LF unclear.

    Due to his defense Cameron could actually be more valuable than Bay but at close to half the price.

    Yep. He'd lose some of that value if he played left but I think he'd still be pretty good out there.

    If Gonzo is going to fetch a package of players led by Buchholz, I'd be taking Theo's temperature on Votto.
