2018.11.27 23:42 SouthernDerpfornia Official /r/baseball 2019 Hall of Fame Mock Voting and Useful Hall Info Post

Hello, /baseball!
Hall of Fame voting season is upon us, which means it is time for the yearly mock voting for the users to decide who they think should be elected into the Hall in 2019.
Here are the results from last year if you are interested in taking a look back at how the sub voted for the 2018 class. Below, there will be two separate google form links for voting. The first one is the standard ballot, which means it follows the same 10 player limit rule as the BBWAA's. The second will be for the no limit ballot, meaning you will not be constrained by the 10 player limit rule. On both ballots, you may select to submit a blank ballot, which means all of your other selections will not be counted but your ballot will still count towards the final total ballot count. If you submit multiple ballots, I will be throwing out the older of the submissions. These ballots will each be open for the next couple of weeks, and results will be posted before the January date of the real life results.

Voting is now locked

2018.07.05 23:48 usdballum [Boston Globe, Paywall] Former Red Sox bat boy Thad Ward living the dream

Former Red Sox bat boy Thad Ward living the dream
By Owen Pence
JULY 5, 2018
Thad Ward’s Red Sox journey began on a field in Fort Myers, Fla.
Long before his name was called in the Major League Baseball Draft, before he had discovered then honed a power sinker that would serve as the key to his dreams, Ward was a Bostonian for a day amid the sun-drenched palms.
Having friends in high places is a blessing, no matter the age. When a childhood pal asked Ward if he’d like to try his hand as a bat boy at the Red Sox’ then-spring training facility at City of Palms Park, the youngster was hooked.
“A friend of mine had the opportunity to [bat boy],” recalled Ward. “They only had one son and I was very good friends with him, so they asked me if I wanted to do it. That’s really all that happened to get that job.”
Though Ward’s nonchalance makes it sound like just another gig, it was anything but. With the passing of time, Ward lost the ability to pin down the exact date his services were called upon, though he believes it was the year the Red Sox broke their title curse in 2004.
Numbers on a calendar may be fleeting, but the Sox he encountered that day are etched into his brain for eternity.
“I was with everybody,” Ward said. “It was Ortiz, Manny, Varitek, Lowell, Coco, Youkilis. I got to go into the locker room before the game just to hang out with them a little bit. They were cool; they talked to me.”
Now that he’s grown, and the Red Sox have a vested interest in the Floridian that extends beyond important acquaintances and the fetching of lumber.
Ward was once a precocious high schooler whose slender frame had yet to catch up to his ability as a pitcher. Slinging the rock for Bishop Verot High School in Fort Myers, Ward secured a commitment from the University of Central Florida on the promise of a zesty fastball/slider combination.
In college, Ward worked tirelessly to corral his promising arsenal with consistency and command. A tip from pitching coach Justin Parker changed Ward’s outlook to make the righthander a tad less conventional.
“He came up to me and was like, ‘Hey, why don’t you throw your two-seam all the time? Just be a sinkerballer.’ I had never thought of it but [said], ‘Yeah, I’ll give it a try.’ Obviously it worked so that’s basically what I’ve been doing.”
Ward’s openness to change paid dividends. His two-seam fastball had always possessed the bite of a sinker. Now, he was being told to lean on its tailing action.
As a junior Ward took flight, tossing over 63 innings for Central Florida with a 3.27 ERA while striking out 84 and walking just 26. He started five games, eclipsing his total from the previous two seasons combined, before transitioning to the bullpen for the remainder of the season.
Boston selected its former bat boy in the fifth round of the 2018 draft, using pick No. 160 to grant a childhood wish.
“I’ve always loved the Red Sox,” said Ward. “The first game I ever saw in person was a Red Sox spring training game and I’ve loved them ever since. I’ve played in JetBlue [Park], I’ve played in City of Palms Park, [Boston’s] spring training complexes. I’ve trained there all my life.
“I was really looking forward to the draft and I was really hoping it would be the Red Sox. That was the team I really wanted to go to. I love what they’re about.”
Like a modern Red Sox pitcher, Ward speaks of pitch tunneling and sequencing with authority. His sinkeslider combination retains its potency because Ward releases them from identical arm slots, the former violently diving away from righthanded batters and the latter running in on their hands.
Two plus-pitches is enough to project as an effective major league reliever. But Boston sees a starter in Ward and is developing him as such. Part of that process hinges on the growth of Ward’s changeup, which has gotten better but still lacks consistency.
A big one of my weaknesses in college, especially my sophomore year and still my junior year, was developing a changeup,” Ward said. “I’d never really had a true changeup that I had a really good feel for, had a lot of confidence in, and threw with command.
“During the season we started using it more and more at UCF. It was getting better and better. Now, it’s not really a confidence issue with the pitch, it’s being able to throw it where I want, when I want. It’s getting better. It’s not terrible but it’s not where I want it to be.”
If it gets to where Ward wants it to be, opposing hitters are in for a tough time. Ward struggled in his first minor league start, lasting just 1⅔ innings for short-season Single A Lowell and allowing a run on two hits. But Ward struck out three, his fastball reaching the mid 90s.
Now 21 and almost a decade and a half removed from his bat boy cameo, Ward knows the welcome will be warm upon his return to South Florida.
“Fortunately for me, spring training is right there in Fort Myers,” he said. “I’ll be able to have my family there. My friends will be able to come out to games. I’ll be right at home during the offseason and spring training. That’s a really nice perk to have.”

2017.07.12 19:41 xxxthats3xs Wild Card Wednesday: Revisiting the Greatest Day in MLB History

Wild Card Wednesday, September 28, 2011, was the final day of the 2011 MLB regular season, a culmination of improbable comebacks over the course of the last month in the wild card standings for both leagues.

AL East Standings, September 1, 2011

Team W L Win% GB
Red Sox 83 53 .610 N/A
Yankees 82 53 .607 .5
Rays 74 62 .544 9

NL Wild Card Standings, September 1, 2011

Team W L Win% GB
Braves 81 55 .596 N/A
Cardinals 73 64 .533 8.5

The Red Sox, Rays, and Braves have played 136 games, and the Cardinals have played 137, leaving 26/25 games left for the Rays/Cardinals to potentially make the playoffs. Unfortunately, MLB has not to my knowledge archived win probability from the 2011 season, but as a very rough comparison to 2016: On September 1, the 2nd place Astros (8.5 GB) were given a 1.6% chance to win the AL West, and on August 31 the 2nd place Mets (9 GB) had a 0.4% chance given to take the NL East.

Now, let’s go back to before the season began. You may have noticed on the AL side that the Red Sox were actually leading the division on September 1. In fact, they had the best record in the league, as was expected after their crazy offseason moves.

An 89 game winner in 2010, Boston lost Mike Lowell, Victor Martinez, and Adrian Beltre, but acquired Adrian Gonzalez via a trade with San Diego (giving up future ace Casey Kelly, Rey Fuentes, and Anthony Rizzo), and in free agency signed Bobby Jenks, Alfredo Aceves, and the at-the-time face of the Rays franchise, Carl Crawford. Gonzalez was coming off a 4th place finish in MVP voting and a 3rd consecutive all-star appearance, and Crawford, a 4-time all-star, finished 7th in MVP voting the previous year.

Boston’s Opening Day 2011 Lineup:
Position Player
CF Jacoby Ellsbury
2B Dustin Pedroia
LF Carl Crawford
3B Kevin Youkilis
1B Adrian Gonzalez
DH David Ortiz
RF Mike Cameron
C Jarrod Saltalamacchia
SS Marco Scutaro
SP Jon Lester

The Braves (91-71 in 2010) had a less flashy offseason, losing Troy Glaus and Derrek Lee, but acquiring Dan Uggla from the Marlins for Mike Dunn and Omar Infante. Uggla, a 2-time all-star 2B that never hit less than 27 home runs in his 5 MLB seasons, was supposed to be a big piece for a young Braves team poised to only get better, with guys like Brian McCann, Martin Prado, Jason Heyward, Freddie Freeman, Tommy Hanson, Brandon Beachy, Jair Jurrjens, and three nasty relievers at the back end of the bullpen in Craig Kimbrel, Eric O’Flaherty, and Jonny Venters… all under 30 years old!

Atlanta’s Opening Day 2011 Lineup:
Position Player
LF Martin Prado
CF Nate McLouth
3B Chipper Jones
C Brian McCann
2B Dan Uggla
RF Jason Heyward
SS Alex Gonzalez
1B Freddie Freeman
SP Derek Lowe

In MLB.com’s season preview, the Braves were predicted to make the wild card while the Red Sox were thought to not only win the AL East, but the whole World Series. As it was put in the article, “Carl Crawford and Adrian Gonzalez make for the highest expectations in Beantown since The Curse Was Broken”. The Rays and Cardinals aren’t expected to make the postseason. Sports Illustrated, Fox Sports, and Bleacher Report are all pretty much in agreement on the Red Sox/Braves making the playoffs and Cardinals/Rays not, except for SI picking the Rockies to win 90 games and take the wild card over Atlanta by 1 game.

The Cardinals were generally seen as a fringe playoff team (lost Adam Wainwright to injury, signed Lance Berkman), but the offseason-depleted Rays, losing not only Crawford but Matt Garza (via trade), Carlos Pena, a majority of their 2010 bullpen, and more, weren’t expected to do anything. In the Bleacher Report preview, the Rays’ blurb read, “While Joe Maddon does a great job in making do with few resources, he’s not a miracle worker.”

We’re back to September. The Red Sox are enjoying a comeback season from Josh Beckett and a good year from Clay Buchholz to help Jon Lester anchor the rotation. Alfredo Aceves, Daniel Bard, and Jonathan Papelbon are a solid back end of the bullpen. The offense was the machine it was hyped up to be. Adrian Gonzalez, David Ortiz, Kevin Youkilis, and Dustin Pedroia are all OPSing north of .800, and Jacoby Ellsbury is about to bat .321/.376/.552 with 32 H39 SB. Prized free agent Carl Crawford, however, is having his worst season since losing rookie eligibility in 2003.

The Braves’ pitching is rock solid. The top 4 in Tim Hudson, Jair Jurrjens, Brandon Beachy, and Tommy Hanson all have ERAs under 4, and the game’s over after the 6th inning because O’Flaherty, Venters, and Kimbrel are just about unstoppable, being compared to the 1990 Reds’ “Nasty Boys”. Kimbrel is striking out out 14.8 per 9, and has the highest ERA of the three at 2.10. Freddie Freeman is having a great first full year to help Chipper, Uggla, and McCann in the middle of the order.

The Rays are doing better than most expected, thanks to rookies Jeremy Hellickson, Alex Cobb, and Desmond Jennings, a career year from Matt Joyce, a Casey Kotchman comeback year, and the few preseason proven guys Evan Longoria, Ben Zobrist, B.J. Upton, David Price, and James Shields all doing their part.

Despite Adam Wainwright being out for the year, the Cardinals’ rotation is staying solid. Chris Carpenter, Jaime Garcia, and Kyle Lohse are the main three holding the fort. The offense is doing its part with Albert Pujols, Matt Holliday, and Lance Berkman in the middle of the order OPSing .900+.

To give another comparison to previous playoff odds, on September 7, 2014, the Braves (7 GB) had a 1.3% chance to win the NL East.

Over the September 9-11 weekend, the Rays faced the Red Sox and the Cardinals faced the Braves, with both trailing teams getting the three-game sweep. On 9/9, the Cardinals made a two-run comeback off of Kimbrel and won in extra innings. On 9/10, the Rays won in the 11th.

At this point, it began to become clear that it was actually possible for the Rays and Cardinals to make the postseason. The Red Sox/Rays have 16 games left. The Braves have 14. The Cardinals have 15. Again, to compare to the 2016 season, on September 12, the Giants (4 GB) had an 11.4% chance to win their division. In addition, in 2012, the A’s (3 GB) had a 13.3% chance at their division on that same date.

Both the Red Sox and Braves need a scapegoat for their well-in-progress collapses. The Braves’ offense has disappeared and the bullpen hasn’t been quite the same since the Cardinals blown save, putting criticism upon first-year manager Fredi Gonzalez for overusing Kimbrel and company earlier in the year.

The Red Sox’ reason is a little juicier: beer and fried chicken. Though this story wasn’t released until the following month, manager Terry Francona completely losing the clubhouse (including Lester, Lackey, and Beckett’s lounging during off days) would become the accepted reason for team performance to decline. The team was taking their postseason victory lap a month early.

There is one week left in the season. The 2015 Astros (1.5 GB in the division on September 20) had a 36.7% chance to win the AL West. On that same date, the Yankees (2.5 GB in the AL East) had a 10.6% chance to win their division.

Well, it officially happened. Both the Rays and Cardinals managed to tie up the wild card standings through 161 games. After six months of the marathon that is baseball, it still comes down to the last game for these four teams. The Rays and Cardinals can’t let off the gas now, because the Red Sox and Braves can make everyone forget about the last month if they can just win out and make it to the playoffs.

Times courtesy of this great video, all EDT
7:48 P.M.
The Red Sox’ Dustin Pedroia scores the first run of the night against the Orioles. Baltimore’s Buck Showalter is in his first full year as Orioles manager, who is trying to create a new atmosphere in the O’s clubhouse and notably wanted nothing more than to spoil the postseason hopes of the Red Sox.
7:53 P.M.
Meanwhile in St. Pete, staff ace David Price is struggling early as he has now given up 5 runs through 1 ⅔ IP against the Yankees.
8:02 P.M.
Dan Uggla tees off on the Phillies’ Cole Hamels, as the Braves take a 3-1 lead.
8:12 P.M.
Albert Pujols knocks in the Cardinals’ first run of the night against the Astros’ Brett Myers. The rally continues and St. Louis takes a 5-0 lead. Considering that the Astros have already lost 105 games this season, and Cards’ ace Chris Carpenter is on the mound, it’s time to sweat if you’re a Braves fan.
8:35 P.M.
De facto leader of the Red Sox, Dustin Pedroia, takes the lead back for Boston with a home run. As Red Sox PBP man Don Orsillo puts it, “Dustin Pedroia, willing his way into the postseason”.
8:56 P.M.
With men on first and second and two down in the bottom of the sixth, an Atlanta blooper is hit to right field. Dan Uggla tries to extend the 3-1 lead by going home, but Phillies RF Hunter Pence throws him out to retire the side.
9:06 P.M.
In the very next half inning, the Phillies have a rally brewing. With runners on the corners and one away, a chopper is hit to Braves SS Jack Wilson who boots it off of his glove. 3-2 Braves.
9:56 P.M.
In the top of the ninth, the Phillies tie up the game with a Chase Utley sacrifice fly. It’s a blown save for Craig Kimbrel.
10:23 P.M.
Evan Longoria hits a three-run homer to left in the bottom of the eighth. It is now 7-6 New York.
10:25 P.M.
Chris Carpenter finishes the complete game shutout of the Astros, and the Cardinals live on another day.
10:33 P.M.
It’s the bottom of the tenth in Atlanta. With a man on first and two away, Chipper Jones hits a ball to the gap that is caught on the run by CF Michael Martinez, ending the inning.
10:47 P.M.
The Rays are down to their last out. There is a conspiracy theory out there that the Yankees decided to throw the game at this point to spite the Red Sox, because it is Cory Wade out there for the save, who is #4 at best on the Yankees’ relief depth chart. The setup man, David Robertson, nor the best closer of all time, Mariano Rivera, is on the mound. Both were used the previous day but had multiple days of rest before that. Of course, it is probably more likely that the Yankees just didn’t care about the result of the game and wanted to rest their stars, since their postseason seed was already set at this point.
Dan Johnson, pinch hitter, walks up to the plate - a roster filler with a sub-.400 OPS on the year. All that he’s there to do is pull a ball out of the yard, and he does just that. 7-7.
11:12 P.M.
First and third with two outs in the bottom of the twelfth in Atlanta, and it’s a slow chopper from Martin Prado for the out. Still a tied ballgame.
11:17 P.M.
After a rain delay, the game has resumed in Baltimore. Carl Crawford hits a ball into the gap with a runner on and one gone. Marco Scutaro tries to score from first to extend the 3-2 lead, but is thrown out at home. The Orioles escape unscathed.
11:28 P.M.
It’s the top of the thirteenth inning, and the Phillies’ Hunter Pence drives home a run on an infield single with two away. 4-3 Philadelphia.
11:40 P.M.
In the bottom half, Freddie Freeman smokes a line drive right to first for the 3-6-3 double play. The Braves blow the save in the ninth, then squander rallies in the tenth, twelfth, and thirteenth, and now their season is over. Freeman spikes his helmet into the dirt as he runs through first.
11:43 P.M.
The Red Sox have the bases loaded with one out in the top of the ninth, but bounce into a double play. It’s still 3-2 going into the bottom half.
11:59 P.M.
Nolan Reimold hits a ground rule double to score Chris Davis with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. 3-3.
The very next batter, Robert Andino, hits a blooper to left that is bobbled by… you guessed it, Carl Crawford. Reimold scores, the Orioles win, and now the Rays control their own destiny.
12:05 A.M.
The final score of BOS/BAL is shown in Tropicana Field. Evan Longoria steps up to the plate, and hits a line drive down the line, towards the left field wall notoriously lowered for none other than Carl Crawford while he was in Tampa, and the game is over.

2011 was MLB’s final year of using the one wild card team format, in response to a number of things, including lack of interest in some years during the last week-ish of the season, and how many wild card teams made World Series runs, including the 2011 Cardinals, leading to some lack of incentive to try to win the division over just grabbing the wild card. While it was probably a good decision, it’s funny to think that the 2011 season would have been a lot less exciting with two wild card spots.

While the 2011 Cardinals, of course, kept their late season momentum and won that year’s World Series over the Rangers, the Rays lost to that same Rangers team 3-1 in the ALDS.

Buck Showalter’s fired up Orioles continued their September momentum from playing spoiler into grabbing the brand new second wild card spot in 2012.

The seat hit by Dan Johnson’s game tying home run was painted by the Rays. The corner of Evan Longoria’s game winning homerun, formerly associated with Crawford, now had one specific moment that was much more memorable. The Rays have named the ground just beyond the fence “162 Landing”.

Terry Francona was fired as Red Sox manager following the season, infamously replaced by Bobby Valentine. The team’s struggles continued, leading to a fire sale in 2012, trading away Josh Beckett, Adrian Gonzalez, and Carl Crawford to the Dodgers in exchange for what was basically salary relief, and Boston finished in last place in the AL East.

The Braves would yet again finish in 5th in the NL in 2012, losing the wild card game because of an “infield fly” to… the Cardinals. Craig Kimbrel would continue to be elite, but Jonny Venters and Eric O’Flaherty began to decline, and eventually faded into obscurity.

Carl Crawford never again would be the player he was on the Rays. He was released in 2016 by the Dodgers.
Wild Card Wednesday truly was the greatest night of watching baseball that anyone could ask for. At least three great games involving the playoff race were played, depending on how much you care about the Cardinals blowing out the Astros. Drama lasted for hours, with two games going to extra innings and another having a rain delay. Perhaps most importantly (unless you’re from Boston or Atlanta), the comeback was completed, somehow, someway, in both leagues. Baseball is crazy. Here’s to another night like Wednesday, September 28, 2011, in the future... maybe even down the home stretch in the 2017 season.

2016.08.01 00:20 gogoplatter Brian Cashman's Five Year Plan: From Jesus Montero to Tyler Clippard and Back,

2012
Jesus Montero and Hector Noesi to Seattle for Michael Pineda and Vincente “Jose” Campos -Looking back I really think this trade was the true signifier in the change of culture within the organization, and catalyst for many trades following. At the time this wasn’t a, “Classic,” Yankee trade. Cashman translated his assets to improve the team without foregoing youth, something the team would continue to do going forward
In the next two years, sans Brian McCann, the Yanks made several short term moves. Small trades, and 1-2 Year contracts to the likes of Kevin Youkilis and Travis Hafner, filling holes in the lineup to stay relevant. They held on to their top prospects, and let their system grow. 2014 was much different though.
2014
Peter O’Brien to the Arizona for Martin Prado -O’Brein was a Minor-League power bat without a position, and with Prado, Cashman continued to translate his assets into youthful players with value.
Shane Green in three-team deal for Didi Gregorius / David Phelps and Martin Prado to Miami for Nathan Eovaldi, Garrett Jones and Domingo German
-Turning Shane Green into Didi is definitely a steal in hindsight. Didi has proved to be a valuable and consistent SS, and possible asset or building piece for the future. For all intents and purposes Cashman turned David Phelps and Peter O’ Brein into Eovaldi, German and Jones. Jones gave them at bats in the following season, whereas Eovaldi has given them innings and is still a possible asset at the trading deadline. German remains a possible relief option in the future. All in all, Cashman continued to give up very little for future gains.
2015-16
Adam Warren and Brendan Ryan to the Cubs for Starlin Castro
Rookie Davis, Caleb Cotham, Tony Renda and Eric Jagielo for Aroldis Chapman
-The Castro deal in a way could be folded into a future deal since Warren had only a short stay with the Cubs. Same goes for Chapman, who came at a steal compared to what he was moved for.
Aroldis Chapman to the Cubs for Gleyber Torres, Adam Warren, Billy McKinney and Rashad Crawford
Andrew Miller to the Indians for Clint Frazier, Justus Sheffield, Ben Heller and J.P. Feyereisen
Vincente “Jose” Campos to Arizona for Tyler Clippard
-Looking at what the Yankees have gotten back this year is astounding. Essentially they gave up Andew Miller, Brendan Ryan, Cotham, Davis, Renda and Jagielo for, Castro, Torres, McKinney, Frazier, Sheffield, Heller, Feyereisen, and Rashad Crawford. They also essentially wapped minor leaguers and short-term contracts for Michael Pineda, Natahan Eovaldi, Didi Gregorious. Campos is a good one to end on. Coming from the trade that has yielded the Mariners with nothing to show, Cashman continued to profit from it, hoping to reclaim some magic in Clippard. With both Pineda and Eovaldi on the market, there could still be more to come
Without going through a full crash and burn, Brian Cashman has been able to radically reform the Yankees entire system. Over the next two years the Yankees will have young major league ready talent, little salary committed long term and a farm system loaded with prospects. Cashman truly deserves to be commended for the job he’s done over the past 4 years.
Edit: Correcting date, sorry don't know how to properly space :-/ Edit 2: Andrew Mitchell was traded for Andrew Miller

2015.08.20 17:43 jumpoffjosh Trade away the farm!

Since Dave Dombrowski has joined the Red Sox, I've seen a lot of talk on this sub about a fear that he's going to trade away all the young prospects. I'm here to argue that more times than not, it pays off to trade young prospects for legitimate talent. I'm also here to say that Ben Cherington was not as good at building up the farm system as everyone is led to believe. This is a long post, so bear with me.
Prospects Traded That Worked Out
Hanley Ramirez – Signed as an international Free Agent in 2000. At one point he was the #1 prospect in the Red Sox system. He was traded along with Anibal Sanchez for Josh Beckett, Mike Lowell, & Guillermo Mota. Hanley Ramirez had a successful career with the Marlins and Dodgers while struggling to stay healthy. Josh Beckett and Mike Lowell were critical to the success of the Red Sox and they were both instrumental to the Sox winning in 2007. This was a good trade for the Sox.
Phil Dumatrait – Drafted in 2000 in the 1st Round. Was traded in 2003 for Scott Williamson. Williamson pitched in 52 games for the Sox in 2003 & 2004 with an ERA in the low 3’s . Phil Dumatrait played in 42 games in his whole career.
Kelly Shoppach – Drafted in 2001. At one point was named the #7 Prospect in the Sox System. Was traded in 2006 along with Andy Marte & Guillermo Mota for Coco Crisp, Josh Bard, and David Riske. Coco Crisp was disappointing offensively in his three years with the Red Sox but has had a good career in Oakland. Kelly Shoppach had one good year in Cleveland before bouncing around the league with a sub .200 AVG. Very similar to Josh Bard. Overall this trade just barely worked in the Sox favor.
Andy Marte – Was once named the #1 prospect in the Red Sox system. Was acquired in a trade for Edgar Renteria. Was then traded along with Guillermo Mota and Kelly Shoppach for Coco Crisp. As said with Kelly Shoppach, Coco Crisp was disappointing, but not as disappointing as Andy Marte. He went on to go back and forth between AAA and the majors with Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Anaheim, and eventually Arizona. Again, overall, this trade just barely worked for the Sox.
Brandon Moss – Drafted in 2002. Played for the Sox in 2007 & 2008. He was traded along with Craig Hansen & Manny Ramirez for Jason Bay. Brandon Moss was a late bloomer but found a career in Oakland from 2012-2014. At one point he was an All-Star. Jason Bay was an All-Star and 7th in MVP voting in 2009 with the Red Sox. Before his inexplicable drop-off in 2010, Jason Bay was a very good player and you wonder what would’ve happened to him if he was resigned by the Red Sox. This trade was a win for the Sox since they dumped Manny, got a good player in Jason Bay, and Hansen ended up being a bust. Despite Moss’ limited success, it’s hard to imagine he would’ve gotten the playing time with the Sox that he got in Oakland.
Justin Masterson – Drafted in 2006. Masterson pitched well for the Sox in 2008 before being traded away to Cleveland in 2009 with Nick Hagadone & Brian Price for Victor Martinez. Masterson was a dependable pitcher for Cleveland, even making the All-Star team in 2013. He resigned with the Red Sox this year and has been a disappointment as a starter and out of the pen and was just recently released. Victor Martinez only stayed with the Red Sox for one more year but was an All-Star and hit over .300. There were concerns that Martinez was getting old. But he has had three successful seasons with Detroit
Nick Hagadone – Drafted in 2007. At one point he was ranked the 3rd best prospect in the Red Sox system. He was involved in the trade for Victor Martinez. With Cleveland he was converted to a reliever and has been a below average contributor for them out of the pen since.
Casey Kelly – Drafted in 2008. At one point the #1 Prospect in the Red Sox System. He never pitched for the Red Sox Major League team. He was traded along with Anthony Rizzo, Reymond Fuentes, & Eric Patterson for Adrian Gonzalez. Here is Adrian Gonzalez’s line while with the Sox for 282 Games. 358 Hits 82 Doubles 42 Homeruns 203 RBI .318BA .377OBP. In 2011 with the Sox he was an All-Star, finished 7th in MVP voting, won the Silver Slugger and the Gold Glove. Kelly’s career ERA is 6.21 and he is now a reliever in the Padres minor league system.
Anthony Rizzo – Drafted in 2007. At one point the #3 Prospect in the Red Sox system. Part of the trade for Adrian Gonzalez. 2013-To-Date Numbers vs. Gonzalez. Rizzo 416 G, 415 H, 98 2B, 78 HR, 228 RBI, .271 AVG .371 OBP 2-Time All-Star. Gonzalez 432 G, 459 H, 100 2B, 73 HR, 289 RBI, .286 AVG, .347OBP, All-Star, Gold Glove, Silver Slugger. Anthony Rizzo is admittedly only 26 and looks to have a great career ahead of him. But had the Sox kept Gonzalez, he would’ve been more valuable the past few years than Rizzo.
Anthony Ranaudo – Drafted in 2010 as a first round pick. Ranaudo pitched relatively well for the Sox in 2014 starting 7 games. He was at best at the time a 5th starter. He was traded for Robbie Ross Jr this past offseason. He’s struggled in his few appearances for the Rangers this year. Robbie Ross Jr has been an average arm out of the pen for the Sox. Ranaudo should’ve had more time to develop with the Sox, but there are a lot of good young pitching prospects.
Prospects They Should Have Traded
Craig Hansen – At one time named the #4 Prospect in the Red Sox farm system. Drafted in 2005 Only season in the majors with Sox, posts a 6.63 ERA. Part of a throw in on the Ramirez/Jason Bay deal. I’d rather the few years of Jason Bay and being able to dump Manny at the time. Played poorly for the Pirates, unfortunately was diagnosed with Parsonage-Turner syndrome and was never the same. Could’ve been traded earlier for more.
Michael Bowden – At one time ranked the #5 Prospect in the Red Sox system. Was said to have the best control of any pitcher in the system. Career ERA of 4.1. Drafted in 2005 was traded in 2012 for Marlon Byrd. Marlon Byrd was released by the Red Sox a month and a half later, was then suspended 50 games for PED’s. Michael Bowden is currently in the Minnesota Twins minor league system. Definitely could’ve been traded earlier for more.
Manny Delcarman – Drafted in 2000. Made his debut in 2005. Pitched effectively 2005-2007 until the 2007 Playoffs when he allowed 4ER in 4-1/3IP. Didn’t play in the majors again. Was traded to the Rockies in 2010 for Chris Balcom-Miller. Hasn’t been with a team since 2013. Could’ve definitely been traded as a prospect.
Daniel Bard – Drafted in 2006. Bard had great seasons as a set-up man with the sox in 2009, 2010, and the first half of 2011. After that, looking for more money Daniel Bard was made a starting pitcher. He struggled the first two months of the season and was demoted in June of 2012. He pitched two games for Boston in 2013 allowing a hit and run over one inning. He hasn’t seen time in the Majors since. Bard was at one point considered untouchable by the Sox. He was mentioned in many trades, he should’ve been a part of them.
Ryan Kalish – Drafted in 2006 – Kalish was highly touted while in the minor leagues and in 2011 JP Ricciardi predicted that he would be a star. After injury troubles in 2011 and 2013 he never really got off the ground. He was released by the Red Sox following the 2013 season. He was signed by the Cubs in 2014 but never saw consistent playing time and struggled at the plate. He’s currently a free agent.
Lars Anderson – Drafted in 2006 – In 2008 he was named the Minor League Offensive Player of the Year for the Red Sox and was supposed to be the next big power threat. From 2010 to 2012 he only played in 30 total games for the Red Sox, never hitting a major league home run. He was traded in 2012 for Steven Wright. He hasn’t played in the majors since. Now while Steven Wright has ended up seeing some major league time with the Red Sox. Lars Anderson could have been traded sooner.
Will Middlebrooks – Drafted in 2007. At one point he was rated the #1 prospect in the Red Sox system. Middlebrooks has battled injuries his whole major league career. He showed flashes of power in 2012 and 2013 but wasn’t hitting for contact. He was traded following the 2014 season for Ryan Hanigan. Hanigan has been the every-day catcher for the Red Sox while healthy, but is not a good haul for someone who was once named the #1 prospect.
Ryan Lavarnway – Drafted in 2008. In2012 he was named the #9 prospect in the Red Sox organization. He was supposed to be an offensive catcher of the future for the Red Sox. He struggled to find playing time with the Red Sox and was eventually DFA’d in 2014. He was picked up by the Orioles but was eventually released the following year. He was signed by the Braves and has still been struggling to find playing time. He’s hitting below .200 in 24 games in 2015.
Clay Buchholz – Clay has been the definition of frustrating over his career. At times he has Ace stuff and is brilliant. At other times he has an ERA over 7.00 and can’t get out of the 3rd inning. Buchholz’ name was attached to a lot of trades early in his career. And one can’t help but wonder if the Sox could’ve gotten a bit more consistency out of whoever he was traded for.
Prospects They Should NOT Have Traded
Freddy Sanchez – Drafted in 2000. Was traded for Jeff Suppan in 2002. Suppan went 3-4 with a 5.57 ERA for the Sox in 2003. Freddy Sanchez went on to have an above average career. He was a 3-time All-star, he won the batting title in 2006. This is definitely a time when we should’ve kept a player instead of trading mid-season for a rental.
David Murphy – Drafted in 2003 – Murphy was traded to the Texas Rangers along with Kason Gabbard for Eric Gagne. Everyone remembers how that worked out. Gagne had a terrible season with Boston despite the Sox winning the World Series that year. David Murphy had an average career in Texas. It’s doubtful he would’ve received much playing time in Boston. Still, would’ve been better off with him than Eric Gagne.
Alex Wilson – Drafted in 2009. A quiet throw-in as part of the Yoenis Cespedes for Rick Porcello trade. Wilson is arguably the best arm in Detroit’s bullpen. He has a sub 2.00 ERA in 60IP in 2015. Will how bad Rick Porcello has pitched, this was a very, very poor trade for the Red Sox.
Prospects They Kept That Succeeded
Kevin Youkilis- Youkilis had a solid career with the Red Sox and it was a smart idea to keep him.
Jon Lester – Jon Lester was the definitive ace of the staff for the Red Sox before losing him to free agency. His name was tied to lots of trade rumors while he was still a prospect. He is a prime example of a time when it doesn’t pay to trade away a young player.
Jonathan Papelbon – Papelbon is one of the most dominant closers to ever pitch for the Red Sox. He was a 4-time All-Star and a key part of the 2007 World Series. While he was still a starter his name was thrown around in potential trades. He was good to hold onto and arguably should’ve been worth resigning.
Dustin Pedroia – Pedroia started his career the best way possible. He won Rookie of the year his first year and MVP in his second. Since he has been a perennial All-Star and one of the faces of the franchise. While his name wasn’t mentioned much in trades, it was still a great idea to keep him.
Jacoby Ellsbury – Jacoby Ellsbury was one of the most dynamic players to play center field for the Red Sox. He was an instrumental part of their 2007 & 2013 World Series Championship. He’s battled injuries throughout his career, but it’d be hard to argue that it was a mistake to keep him before eventually losing him in free agency.
Christian Vazquez – Vazquez has elite level defense at the catchers position. Him going down in 2015 was a major blow for the Red Sox. Assuming the Tommy John Surgery has no lasting effects, he should be a big part of the 2016 Sox.
Mookie Betts – Mookie is an electric player that has been streaky in 2015. He’s shown flashes of power and has taken to the outfield very well. Still at 22, he seems to be untouchable for the Sox.
Xander Boegarts – Boegarts had a difficult 2014 while moving between SS and 3B. In 2015 with the SS position squarely his, he’s becoming a star. He’s one of the best offensive SS in the AL. His power is still developing and at 22 years old, it should happen soon. He also seems to be untouchable.
Current Prospects
Brandon Workman – Workman is currently recovering from Tommy John surgery. Workman pitched effectively as a set-up man in the 2013 playoff run. With many pitching prospects for the Sox, I would imagine he will come back as a reliever next year and should help out of the pen. He doesn’t have a lot of value now.
Garin Cecchini – Once considered the best infield prospect the Sox had. Now is a bench player in 2015. His value is not as high as it once was and probably could’ve been a key part to a trade.
Matt Barnes – Barnes is a hard throwing pitcher who has shown flashes of brilliance. He won his most recent start and would have value in a trade.
Blake Swihart – Swihart has had an up and down year but has shown that he is Major League ready. With Christian Vazquez set to come back, it’s easy to imagine of them being part of a trade. Both hold extreme value.
Henry Owens – Owens was once the best pitching prospect the Red Sox had. He struggled with command in the minors this year, but finally made the majors this season and has pitched fairly well so far. He probably had more value last year, but is still valuable in trades.
Jackie Bradley Jr – Borderline a prospect as he’s been up and down from the Minors. JBJ has elite defense in the outfield. Probably the best defensive outfielder in the league. His bat is finally starting to come around, evidenced by his 5XBH performance. If the Red Sox outfield is going to be crowded with Hanley Ramirez, Mookie Betts, & Rusney Castillo, then JBJ’s value has never been higher. Either move on from Ramirez or get something for Jackie.
Deven Marrero – A very skilled defensive infielder. His bat has yet to catch up with him. He needs a few more years of development, but probably has value in a trade.
Brian Johnson – Johnson has been a revelation this year, as one of the best pitching prospects the Sox have. Unfortunately, the Sox have a lot of prospects but not a lot of legitimate starters. Between Owens, Eduardo Rodriguez, and Johnson, there aren’t enough spaces in the rotation for all of them. Any of them could be a marquee part of a deal.
Trey Ball – Number 7 overall pick, Trey Ball is still very green. He’s in High-A Salem and pitching below average. As a number 7 pick, hopefully he develops. Probably doesn’t have a lot of value currently.
Antonio Benintendi – Number 7 overall pick this year, Benintendi has impressed so far. He’s shown flashes of power and looks to be a good pick. Probably doesn’t have a lot of value yet, but he could in coming years.
Yoan Moncada – Signed out of Cuba, Yoan Moncada was the most sought after Cuban player this offseason. The Sox are taking their time with him and they should. He’s learning the game in A ball and is hittings .292 through 67 games. He’s had some injury trouble but has shown flashes of being a very dynamic player. He was 39 stolen bases and two triples this year. He probably has a lot of value, but this is one person the Sox should hold on to.
Eduardo Rodriguez – Rodriguez has been great for the Sox this year. At times he’s completely dominant and has no-hit stuff. At other times, he tips his pitches and gets run from the game early. He’s not untouchable, but he’s probably close. If he’s going to be part of a deal, it better be a blockbuster.
Also, out of all those prospects and out of all the young players currently on the team here is who Cherington is responsible for drafting. Everyone else was Theo.
