I'm sure most of you saw PeteAbe's so-sensible-it-just-might-work post yesterday on how the Red Sox can settle the matter of Theo Epstein compensation with the Cubs and acquire a proven starting pitcher who would be a perfect fit in their rotation in one swift move.
If not, read it here and nod in agreement.
You bet I'm on board with Pete's idea of giving the Cubs a couple of legitimate prospects (no, Lars Anderson and Jed Lowrie do not qualify) for Matt Garza as compensation for Epstein.
We discuss the logic and likelihood of such a deal, as well as the Gene Lamont/Bobby Valentine tale-of-the-tape and David Ortiz's job prospects in this week's edition of the Red Sox Podcast.
