Jackie Bradley Jr's stock seems to be going down within the Red Sox organization. maybe they just think he is not ready, or maybe they know some things they would like to keep to themselves.

Thats a lot of eating of a contract to do. six more years totaling $130 million is still due the guy. What ya gong to give in return?

As a lifelong Red Sox I'm not as confident as most fans that Bradley is prepared to replace Ellsbury on a full-time basis.

I have NO doubt that the Red Sox will make a big move for an OF. Can be a corner guy too, but it will happen.

Kemp's agent Dave Stewart intimated in an interview that he thought there's a strong possibility that LA wants to trade Kemp and that he wouldn't mind if it was to the Red Sox.

That's if he stayed healthy. All 30 teams would like to have him on their team. However, I doubt Boston fans will love limited playing time due to a litany of head-scratching injuries that seem endless with this player.

Typical Red Sox. Give the kid a chance before you got out and get an overrated broken down Dodger reject.

Agreed. The Dodgers would have to pay a big chunk of his salary for the Red Sox to even consider a trade, which I'm not so sure that they will.

Giancarlo Stanton.

QUOTE(#14):

I don't know about that. Boston has the $$ to swing it. It depends on what the Dodgers want.Middlebrooks and a prospect for Kemp? LA needs some help at 3B.The team could then bring back Stephen Drew at SS and move Bogarts to 3B.

They're just a few million below the tax threshold now. They wouldn't be able to take on Kemp's salary without the Dodgers assistance.
