Lot of people love Brentz and Lavarnaway but personally I'd much rather Salty.
He's most likely not going to live up to the hype he had coming out as a prospect, but he's gritty and a a great team presence. Has power, wouldn't mind him as #7 or #8 in lineup.
But main parts are Bradley JR and Barnes really. Barnes has potential to make this rotation absolutely scary, with Wheeler, Harvey, Niese and him it will be a force to reckon with.
I don't think Flores should be included. They get to keep Boegarts, their #1.
Compared to the packages we're asking other teams, all Red Sox prospects see to be ranked in the 30's for best prospects. We've asked for top 5 and top 15. Dickey for 2 mid-late 30 prospects plus a beleaguered catcher seems doable.
Barnes would be a great #4 starter, after Harvey, Wheeler, and Niese. That makes our rotation ridiculously scary. Bradley JR if he develops will give us 2/3 of a great outfield (if Nimmo develops too).
A lot of negativity regarding Nimmo but we all knew he was going to take longer than a normal prospect. He as exceptionally raw, had he grown up in a different state with organized baseball there is no doubt in my mind he probably would have been a top 5 pick.
Hoping we make this Red Sox trade, then draft a safer OF prospect than for example Nimmo in this year's draft.
We'd be ready to compete in 2014-2015 at the latest.
