Re: Lester for Bell Rumor 


I would be 100% against this move. No way am I moving Bell for a rental if it were up to me. No way.

If Bell is involved in getting someone like Price or Samarja who you would have gotten more than a 2 month time frame out of then ok. But for a 2 month rental, no way.

Totally against this.

Josh Bell straight up for Jon Lester....I'd do that in a heartbeat. Bell is a really good prospect. Marte and Polanco were really good prospects. Pirates have proven they can develop toolsy outfielders. I have faith in the pipeline to produce another. And Lester is a potential difference maker. It wouldn't make the Pirates a World Series favorite, but it would make their chances significantly better.

It won't be Bell, not for a rental.  That's just who the Sox want.  If it was for someone like Price, Bell (or someone close) would have to probably be involved in the deal, but not for a rental.  Bell is an established top 30 prospect at this point.  You don't give up a prospect like that for a rental.  However, I could definitely see Harold Ramirez plus addition prospects for Lester.

Right, I would trade Bell. But it has to be for more than a 2 month rental.

If they trade Bell for a rental then NH will have to be tarred and feathered. You don't give up a prospect like Bell for so little in return. A rental is what I mean.

Re: Lester for Bell Rumor 


The latest rumor I heard is that the Pirates may be interested in two Red Sox rentals, Lester and John Lackey.

Jose Tabata was pulled from Indy's game tonight without reason.  Not speculating anything, just passing along info since the trade deadline is 45 hours away. 

Someone can make a new thread or we can just keep on this thread.  I'll pass along any info as I get it.

The Pirates reportedly do not want to trade any of their top 6 prospects.  The guys they are willing to discuss for Lester are Hanson, Heredia, Sampson, Jones, Ramirez, etc...guys on that tier.

I don't think that's true, that would really deplete the Pirates middle infield depth within the system.  I don't think they would do that.  I could definitely see Jones OR Hanson, but not both.

heres a piece of the article

Among the significant prospects the Pirates apparently would be willing to give up — in some combination — are right-handers Luis Heredia and Adrian Sampson, third baseman Wyatt Mathisen, shortstops Alen Hanson and Jacoby Jones and outfielder Harold Ramirez.

The potential exists for a blockbuster trade. The Pirates also have interest in a pair of Red Sox relievers — closer Koji Uehara and left-hander Andrew Miller — and right-handed hitting outfielder Jonny Gomes to platoon with rookie right fielder Gregory Polanco. Uehara, Miller and Carp are also eligible for free agency in November.

Starling Marte and Pedro Alvarez also could be included if the Red Sox include players who would be under club control beyond this season such as left-hander Felix Doubront, first baseman/outfielder Mike Carp or third baseman Will Middlebrooks.
