Just Saying, I Know What I’m Talking About

On July 10th, I called in to WEEI, Boston’s sports radio to discuss potential trade targets for the Red Sox. At the time I suggested they ignore going after Roy Halladay and instead concentrate, now or in the off-season on prying Adrian Gonzalez off the Padres. I also posted about it here. On the radio the hosts curtly got off the phone with me, saying that I was being ridiculous and making no sense; well Hall of Famer Peter Gammons, one of the most respected names in baseball agrees with me as he says in his latest article on ESPN:

Considering Boston’s young pitching and the Padres’ lack of it (although 21-year-old right-hander Mat Latos threw 96 mph Sunday), a multi-prospect deal for Adrian Gonzalez makes sense for both teams. The Padres’ ownership is worried about the public perception if the team were to trade away Gonzalez. Fans? What fans?

Now, this isn’t to say Gammo is always right, but the fact that I’m on the same wavelength as him, and considering his sources and contacts within the Red Sox organization, I’d say I’m just a wee bit justified in saying to WEEI that I know more than they do.
