    Ken rosenthal of the sporting news is reporting (and is all over WEEI) that the marlins are looking to move dontrelle willis and one of the interested teams is the red sox. unfortunately we would have to give up Jon Lester and at least another guy (pedrioia or someone).

    That would prove interesting, wonder how Willis would do under the bright lights and ever scrutinizing press in Boston??

    I'm sure just about every team in the league would be interested, and I doubt the Sox would be the ones to get him.

    The thought makes me giddy, but that would be a lot of dough.

    Marlins would ask for Pedroia, Hansen, and Lester at least. Seriously im not joking thats what they would want.

    ya


    Ya they will want way too much. There is so much potential right now, and we are not in need of starting pitching---at least not that bad. If need be paps comes into the rotation. We don't get willis because it goes against everything theo believes to scrap out topline prospects for a guy we really don't need right now---he's just a luxary!

    Top of the rotation pitching is never a luxury. Especially if that pitching is young and healthy. If the Sox think Lester can be top of the rotation then don't do it - if they don't then they'd be stupid not to use him to make the trade happen. As for Hansen - closers aren't so rare that I'd make him untouchable. Same thing for Pedroia's skill set. Number 1 type starters are gold.

    When John Henry was asked about it he said he had read it but said they haven't talked to the Marlins since the Beckett deal.

    If FLA gets rid of Willis, what's their payroll? Like a buck?

    I agree. And he's a lefty too. Outside of Lester though I'd have no problem trading any other prospect for Willis (I'm considering Paplebon a made man at this point)
