Shocked at how positive this thread is for WSI. Lindstorm will get quite the ego stroke if he reads fan forums and comes across this thread.

Whereas most people the Sox acquire probably feel like hanging themselves after the WSI thread.

EDIT: to be perfectly clear, I think this is a good signing too. Go Sox.

Any pulse from Hahn is a positive sign.

Whomever is available. Someone can always be had if the price is right. I'm just saying don't need to set the sights to high. Be happy with a solid leftie hitter. I still think a position player is going to be moved.

What would it take to acquire Granderson?

Granderson would be nice but at what cost?

31 yr old, 195K, 26HR at home, 17 on Road. Definitely a benefactor of the Bronx.

-10 Runs Saved.

I think in a Sox uni he could hit #2 I like having a Lefty hit two to block the catchers clean view of DeAza. Plus he'll see fastballs.

Anyway I see
.265/.325/.450 35hr/90/10sb/ 160+K

I don't think anyone would object to granderson at all. But I think you're fooling yourself if you think 3 hitter. As much as I would agree with you robin is too pigheaded and stubborn trying to force a jackass, sorry donkey, into that 3 hole. And it might have cost him a playoff opportunity because of it.


Lindstrom on other hand seems to give a solid pen if we can stay healthy. I would love to another starter ready to go for the inevitable Peavy meltdown, but we'll see.

Matt Lindstrom is a great signing. our bullpen was already a strength.

2012 Stats:
Nate Jones: 182 ERA+
Matt Thornton: 126 ERA+
Jesse Crain: 179 ERA+
Donnie Veal: 312 ERA+ (limited time, however)
Lindstrom: 159 ERA+

Really, really, good.

Lindstrom is a good signing, but he's failed as a closer before, so it will be interesting where the Sox put him.

Could be a great bridge to Thornton and Crane.

I don't think he's going to be the closer though. I assume Reed will have that job again.
