Okay, I’m not going to suggest the sox go to a 6 man rotation, soon you’ll see a blog post of closer by committee.  Anyway, we have been asking for it and our friend Scott from Boxford Local Cable.

Dice-K Is Really That Bad

Dice K is the 5th best starter on the Red Sox right now — John Smoltz is rocking in rehab, Justin Masterson shown he can pitch in the majors and Clay Buchholz is the best player in AAA –

 

What are the realistic options for what the Sox can do with Dice-K?

1. Decide you are done with him for the year but can save him in 2010. He is only 28 and they don’t want to give up on him for the future. Move him to the bullpen and bury him. Use him for mop up.

2. Go to a 6 man rotation. Laugh all you want about 6 man rotation talk but Dice-K is at his best with an extra day, John Smoltz is 40 years old, Lester never threw as many innings as he did last year, Wakefield is over 40 and Penny is coming off season ending surgery. It’s a legit suggestion.

3. Trade him. Dice-K is 28, with a reasonable contract and a huge draw at the gate. Seattle, SF and LA are places that would welcome him for all those reasons. The Cubs, Brewers and Mets all need pitching and have the money to pay him. Those are 6 teams that would welcome a call from Theo.

  
Dice-K’s in 2009 (Dino….Please Read With Caution)

1-4 7.33 ERA   6 Starts 27 innings   He has not gone more then 5.2 in any game   .373 BA Against

2.11 WHIP   44 Hits   13 Walks   29 K’s   7 Wild Pitches   Teams are slugging .602 against him

Averaging 14.67 hits per 9 innings    19.37 Pitches Per Inning    .436 On Base Percentage Against

A few thoughts heading into the weekend –

 

With John Smoltz scheduled to make a rehab start tonight with the Paw Sox and Penny pitching as well as he is, when are we going to see Clay Buchholz?  Beckett is pitching like the Beckett of 2007 but Dice-K has been awful and can we really count on Wakefield?  The kid is the best player in all of  Minor League Baseball, it’s time to find room for a few starts for Clay before the All-Star break.  If the Sox aren’t going to use him then Theo needs to showcase him for a trade.  Enough is enough, the Sox rotation is not as good as we thought and giving Buchholz a few starts can’t hurt it.

If I could only sign one of the two — I would chose Vince Wilfork over Richard Seymour 10 times out of 10.

Talking with WEEI.com’s Chris Price yesterday, I said that the Patriots should not give Logan Mankins big money when his deal is up after this year.  I would go as far as to say that he has been over-rated by the media.   He is not versatile and that is a huge factor that the Patriots look at in lineman and Belichick has been very good at developing O-Lineman.  If he wants to be paid like a top 10 guard then I would let him walk.  Chris disagreed but did point out that after this season the Patriots are going to have a lot of contracts to deal with.  The 2009 off-season should be an interesting one for Coach Bill.

Here are a few video’s to get you going as we head into the weekend. — Thanks to The Strouminator for the links –

I also want to know, on the heals of Sal DiMasi, what would shock you more going forward?  David Ortiz getting a positive test for any banned substance or Mayor Menino with a bag of Sal Cash?  Nothing shocks me anymore.  Think about it.  A-Roid the greatest player, arguably, ever.  Did you ever think for one minute that he was on anything other than hard work?  Clemens?  With the way injuries occur in pitchers, Clemens seemed to be a “freak” of nature.   A clean politician might be the only thing that would shock me now.  When this all shakes out, would it surprise you if Deval Patrick was connected to some sort of “payoff”?  He did endorse Diane Wilkerson!

What would shock you more?
