Since I'm pretty sure I'll be the next GM of the Red Sox:

Beckett and Lackey for The Spitter and Carlos Zambrano (Cubs swallow 5 million)
We'll throw in Theo for Castro, since I'll be taking over the team.

Anyone have any good ideas for fixing this broken juggernaut - post them here and I'll consider them.

If you take over as GM, I would suggest trading John Lackey, JD Drew and Carl Crawford for Clayton Kershaw, Andre Ethier and Matt Kemp.

Not sure why Theo never thought of that.

Dad,

We can't trade Drew because we don't have him under contract. Plus, the Dodgers already had Drew once and I doubt they'd want him back. Therefore, it would have to be Lackey, Crawford and McDonald for Kershaw, Kemp and Ethier

Dumbass.

I don't see how any of these trades improve the red sox. You're fired.

Iglesias, Ranaudo and Middlebrooks for Kershaw <--- Possible?

Listen Punk...you have to give something up to get something. Iglesias might sing really well, but I don't see the bat coming along, Middlebrooks is only halfway through the small river and Ranaudo is Retardo. That's the logic I'm using to shape the new Red Sox.

John Lackey for your mom and four big-boobed Mexican midgets.

On a serious note, the Red Sox need to unload Lackey somehow, someway. Maybe Lackey for Zambrano might work with Red Sox eating some money over the course of Lackey's contract.

I would LOVE for Lackey to be punted down yawkey way. But for Zambrano?. The guy was one more game away from being locked up
for physical abuse to his teammates haha.

This is an idiotic idea.

They should just go to Lackey and say, "Look, big guy. We overpaid for you. It's not working out. Someone's going to have to eat some money here. Would you do it if we kicked in some BBQ sauce?"

I'm pretty sure that he would. So why on earth should the Sox do it?

I guess the question is though is how many bottles of BBQ sauce?. To be honest the guy is large it might take a couple of
cases to sway the big man.

Thanks, slutbag (word of the day).

I've got plenty more where that one came from.

So far none of you are making any sense. Well done.

In keeping with the not making any sense theme...

Bobby Valentine said he thinks CC Sabathia will opt out of his contract and could end up in Boston.

Which guy? A-Gone? Crawford? Youk? Pedroia? Reddick? Your mom? Which one is it? Seriously.

Trade Iglesias and Ranuado for Hanley Ramirez. That should improve the clubhouse.

The correct answer is "Obama."

I was going to say that, but I don't like black on black crime and I don't mind Obama as much as many others.

Part of the problem with my above statement, however, is the fact that I'm white. But I think I'm a Kenyan. So it all works out in the end. Doesn't it?
