Good trade. Your outfield was getting crowded, and Ramirez will be a younger replacement for Timlin.

That's what they say but now that makes our bench so much more important. Crisp gave us some good production and was an amazing defender. More so last year, when he saved us over 20 runs, than this year, but he was crucial. I honestly hope that this move doesn't push Masterson into the rotation. If he stayed in the bullpen, we'd have a downright tremendous one. But either way, this move gives us flexibility.

could imagine how ridiculously good the yankees bullpen would be next year if we still had ramirez.

Mo
Ramirez
Melancon
Marte
Veras
Edwar
Kennedy (long man)

and it would be all home grown pitchers with the exception of Edwar, who is sort of home grown.

I hate this trade, it makes the red sox better....and it moves masterson back to the rotation.

I know you like our bullpen too though. A good bullpen is crucial.

Papelbon
Okajima
Delcarmen
Masterson
Ramirez
Lopez
(One of many finalists for the long man/spot starter)

That top 5 is brilliant. I really do hope Masterson stays in the bullpen.
