    Per wlw news Buster Olney reporting this is real, but Boston wants Bailey or Latos.

    No
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Re: Jacoby Ellsbury?

    Is this all stemming from that speculative piece of Olney's on possible landing spots for Ellsbury where he guesses the cost and not based on actual rumors? I don't have ESPN Insider so I can't read his speculation part.

    Some small-market teams must desperately cling to their young pitching, which is what the Red Sox are looking for. Some teams, such as the Royals, have other priorities.

    But here are some teams that could theoretically be a fit in an Ellsbury deal. (WARNING: SPECULATION AHEAD)

    Ellsbury plays in a BA heaven. Pagan has played in hitter's nightmares (and he hit .306 in 2009). When it comes to hitting for average, they're essentially the same guy.

    That's crazy. Ellsbury has a one-year contract, had one great year among some otherwise average seasons and can't stay healthy. He's worth a couple prospects, nothing more.

    And in Buster Olney's world the Reds have to pay the Red Sox just to talk to them. I'm actually mildly surprised Olney acknowledged the Reds' existence.

    The article states that Mike Leake may interest Boston.

    Olney lists the best realisitic fits for Ellsbury in this order: 1) Braves--Teheran or Delgado as a centerpiece-- 2)Reds 3)Rangers 4)Phillies 5)Mariners.

    The article is very vague, so you didn't miss much.

    Well, they are, but we already had plenty of evidence of that. And I almost can't blame them for it since the Punto trade. But I'm also just not convinced they want to trade Ellsbury unless someone does something almost as stupid as that.

    Sorry, I'm just not that desperate to replace Drew Stubbs in CF.

    Re: Jacoby Ellsbury?

    Bailey or Latos for Ellsbury is laughable.

    I'm sure some in Boston would say Corcino for Ellsbury is laughable.

    Personally, I wouldn't completely rule out Cingrani or Leake.
    Go BLUE!!!
