This makes more sense if he waives the no-trade to NYY...

<quoted text>The clip below your link shows Willingham's OBP is .357 since his return......how is that an automatic out?......that's what I'm talking about......he's gonna cost nothing in return if the Yanks go that way.....besides target field is more of a pitchers park compared to the stadium..........
NYY need a bat that produces runs, not walks. Willingham's line of 10/29/.215 isn't what NYY needs...

His RISP BA is solid (.289), but he's regressing offensively as the season plays on...

He hits mostly to the left side & @ YS, those are outs. BTW, he's hitting .222 away from Target this season...

<quoted text>Career wise Rios does have a better BA than Willingham.......280 to .254.....but Willingham averages 28 HR 91 RBI.....to Rios 17 HR 78 RBI.....so either is better than what the Yanks have.....not saying stop at Willingham.....just an option.....Matt Kemp is who I would like to see the Yanks land.....Dodgers say now he's off the table....too bad......although Kemp does have a steep deal that runs until 2019.......nothing though the Yanks couldn't afford and he's only 30.......
Willingham's offensive #'s have been in steep decline over the last season & a half. Not worth it...

If NYY wasn't tied into Beltran for 2 more seasons after this season, then Kemp would make sense as long as the contract is insured & LAD pays the majority of the balance owed. Don't see NYY wanting yet another player with a history of injuries. They're playing almost $50 million per season for 2 currently (Sabathia & Teixeira)...

Don't know what MIN wants in return...

Willingham isn't what NYY needs. Can't take chances with the post season @ stake...

Uh Oh Looks like Lester for Joc is in motion...that kid has a tool cabinet Lester will love having him behind him next season in Fenway

Latest On Jon Lester

Here’s the latest on Jon Lester and the Red Sox:

Lester says he would not be inclined to consider a contract extension if a team traded for him, WEEI.com ’s Alex Speier writes.“[M]y ultimate goal would be to come back here. That would be, like I said the other day, I know that’s hard to do,” Lester says.“Money doesn’t buy you happiness.”

The Red Sox want a “huge” return if they’re going to trade Lester, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports tweets.
The Dodgers have a good group of outfielders with which to do a Lester trade, including Joc Pederson and Matt Kemp, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports writes.(A recent report from Gordon Edes of ESPN Boston indicated the Dodgers and Red Sox were considering a Lester/Kemp deal.)

Not a chance LAD is moving Pederson for what is mostly likely to be a rental. Kemp to BOS has more legs unless SEA puts Walker in a deal...

Him and Tulo both will get moved. Doubtful Lester makes his start this week rigth before the deadline. Its almost a done deal with Tulo going to the BIG CITI for Syndergaard. Thats the big buzz today in the office. My assistent is going crazy and wants the rest of the day off now

LAD has to eat the some or the majority of Kemp's remaining money. My guess is his contract isn't insured making him more difficult to move. Pederson isn't being moved...

Being 10.5 games out with under 60 to play is enough to call it a season for BOS...

Lori is the assistant now? Even your buddy dw does not even reply back to the phony profile and your insane claims.

The office when you are not crying to topix as proven in your tman/momma forum is the basement. I hope you found some more on line scams....gotta be tough when you cannot even get a 3 day weekend for a vacation.

The mets will not sniff Tulo as we went over the money issue last year when I was once again proven correct when the mets would not spend 100 mil in salary.

Not going to happen, fatty 8 chins, aka gap tooth. Say, when do you give me the hat info??

Ruh roh.....big doings this week in Paranoia Nation (Stephen Drew).

•The Red Sox are facing a 40-man roster crunch with several notable prospects in the offseason, and Cafardo wonders if the club could package some of these youngsters in a trade rather than risk losing them in the Rule 5 draft.

Imagine a team overpayed vets struggling with injury, no farm, no youth moving up known for its one true strength being able to out bid every team up against their rival who can spend $146m just to break even with you and still be under cap????
LMAO talk about chess moves the Sox are going for total check mate...
Enjoy the new one and done Yankees thats their outlook for a decade
More of ya BS and lies "Sox have $13m committed for 2016" so are you saying Pedroid gets traded in 2015 and they have no intention of signing Lester LMFAO you really are a dope..

ed Sox Notes: Lester, Dodgers, Miller

By Mark Polishuk [July 28, 2014 at 10:25am CDT]

“There’s a growing expectation from rival execs that Jon Lester is going to be traded before [the July] deadline,” ESPN’s Buster Olney reports (Twitter link), and the Dodgers are seen as the likeliest candidate to add the Red Sox left-hander. Los Angeles has shown interest in Lester, though there were conflicting reports yesterday about whether the two sides had actually seriously discussed a trade.

Here’s some more news surrounding the defending World Series champs…
•The Royals, Dodgers and Nationals are the latest known suitors for reliever Andrew Miller, according to ESPN Boston’s Gordon Edes and Peter Gammons of GammonsDaily.com .(Edes reported the Royals’ interest while Gammons reported on the two NL teams.) Boston is known to be shopping Miller, with the Braves and Pirates also amongst the clubs checking in on the lefty. Miller has posted an outstanding 2.45 ERA, 14.5 K/9 and 5.0 K/BB ratio over 40 1/3 relief innings for the Sox this season.
•Also from Gammons, several other teams were interested in Edwin Escobar and Heath Hembree, the two ex-Giants prospects obtained by the Red Sox in the Jake Peavy trade. Two different rival executives told Gammons they tried to get Hembree as a future set-up man, while Escobar’s stock was higher before he began his tough season at Triple-A.
•In a piece full of notes and observations about the Red Sox, Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe is baffled that Lester and the Sox seemed so mutually interested in a contract extension yet now Lester could be a trade candidate.“Why the Sox seem almost eager to chase away one of their cornerstone players is a mystery,” Abraham writes, predicting that if Lester hits the open market, he’ll sign elsewhere since another teams will spend big for the southpaw.
•Also from Abraham, he opines that the Red Sox should extend Miller rather than trade him, stay away from Matt Kemp in any trade talks with the Dodgers and release struggling reliever Edward Mujica.

Technically, the poster from down under is correct. Pedroia is the only player currently on the 25 that has guaranteed money for a full season. Buchholz has a 245K buyout in 2016. What's left out is the 5 arb eligible players that will cost...
