Okay. But no whining about Stewart when Martin inevitably misses time.

I probably would have agreed with you before this season. I catch a lot of Red Sox games. He's absolutely worthless behind the plate. And yes, he was a decent hitter at one time, but no more. Will he give you more hits than Chris Stewart? Maybe, but like Jeemie says, the guy's a fucking turd in the clubhouse. Players around the league can't stand the guy. No fucking thanks.

Just throwing this out there, what would it take to acquire Papelbon from Philly? He wants traded, and the Pirates desperately need a hammer to close out games. Hell, throw Burnett into the deal and i'd be a happy camper :lol:

Papelbon isn't a hammer anymore...although he has been quite good this season.

I don't think he's appreciably better than Melancon or Watson...Phils would have to eat a lot of contract.

I think Papelbon is WAY more likely than Street. Combo of eating salary and a little Jose Tabata action might make it palatable to the Pirates.

If the Pirates are willing to add salary there should be a ton of available options in positions of need

If i'm getting two pitchers from the Phils, I'd prefer Papelbon and Lee over Papelbon and Burnett- depending, of course, on how Lee looks after the ASB.

Phils hopefully would eat a ton of salary.

If you're getting Lee and Papelbon they'd fucking have to eat significantly more than half of it.

I think you'd probably be better off spreading it around. Get maybe Papelbon from the Phillies, a starter from somewhere else, ADRIAN FUCKING BELTRE.
