There, I said it.

Gil, no offense, but you're--well, you're too doggone nice to be the new SDH. Bring back my favorite New Hamshirite or New Hampshirer or whatever the hell they're called.

None taken, buddy.

I understand the context in which you're saying it, but I'm obviously slacking on the fat jokes lately if you think I'm "too nice". :mrgreen:

Hilarious reading through this thread. A couple of us debated this trade at Fenway last weekend. With Beckett and Lowell being two key members of a championship, the debate is pretty much moot. But without question, Hanley Ramirez has been the best player in this trade. Of course, Beckett looks great this season and Ramirez is off to a horrid start (looks to be trying to play his way out of Florida). Lowell proved he had something left for a one season and completely fell out in 2008. Really, they only got 1 strong season from him-- 2007. Sanchez struggled early, but starting in 2009 became a legitimate number 3 starter and is now a legit number 2.

Beckett's been up and down. 3 very good seasons, one bad season and one lost season. The Sox haven't been able to settle the SS spot since Hanley was traded. But, Beckett has been a top of the rotation starter for 3 seasons-- you can't over look that-- and a dominant regular and post season pitcher in 2007. The Red Sox offense was capable of absorbing the loss of Hanley-- although they would have been insanely good with him in the line-up. Probably the best thing that happened was sending Sanchez and keeping Lester. Lester was clearly more ready and is the better pitcher. He's been the true number 1 since 2008 (Buchholz 2010).

If you look back, the Sox didn't have a lot of options to add the top line starter they needed in 2006. Figuring they had an open window of about 3 to 4 seasons starting in 2006 before they'd need to reload, they had to take the chance on Beckett. I mentioned in this thread they could have targeted AJ Burnett-- good lord that would have sucked. Still, Ramirez lived up to the hype. He's been, probably, one of the top five most valuable players in base ball since 2006. And despite recent struggles, he should be entering his absolute prime now.

One of those trades where the Sox pretty much got what they wanted-- another legit starter to get them a title.
