Offseason Trade Possibility?



Gammons On Papelbon, Ramirez, Overbay

By Mark Polishuk [August 13 at 6:15pm CST]

The venerable Peter Gammons appeared on WEEI's The Big Show to discuss a few Red Sox-related hot stove topics. WEEI.com's Sam Dykstra has the transcript of some of the interview's highlights...


The Red Sox will have a hard time finding takers for Jonathan Papelbon this winter if the club decides to install Daniel Bard as its full-time closer. Gammons predicts Papelbon will get around $12MM for his final year of arbitration, and doubts that Boston would be able to move Papelbon's entire salary plus get a quality return in a trade.


The Red Sox have serious OF problems, so how about a deal centered around Fukudome and Papelborn? The money is reasonably close, so some tweaking with other players and/or cash could work.

Fukudome doesn't really solve their OF problems. Oh, and I really don't want Papelbon....especially not for 12Mil.


Papelbon @ $12 million is a better option than paying $12 million for Fukudome to play for another team.

...or sit the bench
