I'd have taken that deal.
Well, as MLB Trade Rumors points out, the offer apparently "involved" Ramirez and Carlos Martinez and thus, was probably not a one for one swap. If we don't know the other players involved or details involved, how can we make an informed judgment on the wisdom of whatever it was the Sox did?

A good take from SSS. Step away from the ledge, folks.

Good read. I would imagine the Sox want position players unless they are deadling a pitcher. I trust the Sox when it comes to acquiring pitchers as well.

I'd like to see Wong traded to the Sox. Would Peavy & Alexei be enough to get Taveras/Wong?

We don't need Carlos Martinez. We need more Nestor Molina types.

The Cardinals are not trading Taveras for Jake Peavy, come on now.

Yeah, that's pretty ridiculous. He'll be their starting CF next year and is the number one prospect in baseball. Basically like trading Harper right before he started.

Yeah, it's amazing how the usual suspects get their panties in a bunch over every little rumor.

According to Jon Heyman the Sox did not turn down a deal for Martinez.

Come on, why are you trying to ruin a perfectly good hatefest thread?

Fire Hahn for allowing this thread to even get started.

Regardless of how good the prospect is, I can't see them moving Ramirez unless they get a SS in return since they don't even have a backup right now.

Wishing we still had Eduardo Escobar rather than a two-month Francisco Liriano rental right about now. He was hitting .214 when the Twins farmed him out so he'd fit right in.

They'd probably play Beckham there for the rest of the year to see if he can do it in future years. 2B is our deepest minor league position.
