I assume we'll be seeing everyone other than Boggs at some point this year.

Although the only one I'd like to see for an extended period is Davidson.

We don't need to rush when it comes to Davidson. Boggs was the only real surprise here. I think it was more the case of Cleto and Webb outperforming him. Our bullpen has nice potential.

Bummed about Davidson, but really surprised about Boggs. I thought for sure, Cooper would have done something to help recapture the fire he once had. Oh well. Maybe it wouldn't have been worth trying to defend what he was apparently likely to screw up.

I thought it was fairly well known Davidson was gonna stay down until June or whenever that super-2 stuff kicks in.

In Beckham, DeAza, Viciedo, and Boggs, that's about $12.5 million of wasted salary when you have 4 minimum wage players which can equally replace if not better those guys right now.

Just take any trade for those guys at this point.

If I see Beckham starting over Semien on opening day I'm going to be very pissed off. Especially being that the China Doll can't get on the field here in the Spring.

Throw Keppinger in that mix and add another 4M.

Yeah, but I have that one in there with sunk cost just like Dunn. Since they were deals signed prior to this offseason.

But nonetheless, If you add Keppinger and Dunn you are looking at close to $30 million in dead money.

And each one of those guys you have a replacement guy available for. Maybe no one can reach Dunn's guaranteed 30 HRs, but I don't think any of those guys will strikeout 200 X and not play the field.

How much money was tied up in Boggs with the minor league contract he had signed? I'm assuming that was a small gamble to take.

I don't think it was a minor league deal. It was a one-year, $1.1 million contract. So, the Sox eat $1.1 million. I'm a little bit surprised by the move. I figured Boggs would be responsible for five or six April losses before the Sox wised up and cut him. I'm pleased they cut their losses now. It is clear he no longer has it and can't help the team.

I was more surprised they sent down Danks, who has had an excellent spring. Guess they just couldn't find a suitable deal to move either De Aza or Viciedo. I imagine other GMs were thinking the Sox were wanting to make a move there, and thus they were trying to rip Hahn off. No point in making a deal just to make a deal. If there isn't one that helps the team, you stand pat.

Davidson looks to be about as good as Josh Fields and may make a nice career for himself as a AAA 3B. I think we completely wasted Addison Reed's trade value trading him when we did.

Hope I am completely wrong but I think Davidson isn't going to last too long in the opportunities he will get.

I disagree- when contenders get hit with injuries- all three can bring something of value in return-

Dunn and Keppinger are a complete waste- but those 3 have some value- no need to just dump them-

Are you basing this on a few weeks of spring training?

I'm not a huge fan of the trade, either. I'm leery of a prospect that has below average ability to make contact in the minors. It doesn't get any easier from here on up.
