      Peavy : Coming off an average year, not a good time for a move to the AL .
      Schmidt : Overpayed Vet who is gradually losing his stuff .
      Maddux and Clemens : Another 40-Year Old ??? Provided we already have Wake, Schill ... not a good idea .

        Peavy, but it's likely he's got no shot being here in the near future.

        The rest are getting up there in years.

        So, I'm going to not vote and say I prefer none of the pitchers listed on the team. Won't mind Clemens, but at his age and coming back to AL East and with all the other business, special treatment to have him come. I'm not too high on him.

          Peavy, for the right price, would be worth taking a look at. The guy has good stuff but struggled last year. With some tweaks I could see him as a solid rotation guy.

          The age, as mentioned, of the others concerns me. No way Maddux goes to the AL.

            peavy by a pretty big margin, after that no one comes close to clemens.

            if i was old enough to watch clemens pitch for the sox, or old enough to appreciate it as anything more than backround noise in my house, i'd probably pick him for sentimental reasons.

            so the only reason i'd particularly want him is basically for the sake of other red sox fans

              i think you aren't giving peavy enough credit. he has an era of like 2.27 in limited innings 2 years ago and something like 2.80 in 05. this year, his "bad" year, he has an era of around 4.10 i think. so granted that's more like 4.90 in the al/ fenway, but still. he's one of the top 25 pitchers in baseball, easy.

              my problem with that honestly would be that we would have too much young good pitching, and i'd get attatched to them and a few of them would have to leave one day. cus if oyu have matsuzaka, beckett, papelbon, peavy, there is no room for great prospects to come up, and you'll end up needing to overpay to keep that roation in place, which the sox don't do. that said, 3-4 years of having 2 aces and 2 number two types (it would be different players every year, taking into account good/ bad years) would easily outweigh the dissapointment of one of them leaving in an offseason.

                Clemens. As the closer. No one thinks he would, though.

                  i've thought about that alot, and that would be absolutely outstanding if the sox could do it.

                    The return of Cy Young - that would be neat.

                      No, it would be cooler if the Rocket came back and broke the tie of him and Cy Young for most wins in a red sox uniform, XX.

                        I'll bet it would be even cooler if Cy Young came back and broke the tie.

                          hahahah true...

                          you're right though, ktf3, but if he was the closer all season he'd almost definitely break that tie.

                          seeing him reach 200 with the team, though, would be cool

                            Greg Maddux.

                            He can then join his brother, so to speak...

                              Randy Johnson was the same age as Peavy and had a worst season than Peavy did this year when he switched to the AL. Randy and Jake are similiar pitchers. They're both strikeout pitchers, who have struggled locating in young age. Peavy's the guy you want on your team, trust me. He's a future Cy Young winner.
