What would Jacoby Ellsbury or Terry Evans cost us?

Why would the Red Sox trade him for minor league pitching? They are a contender - they would need tangible pieces to thier ballclub that can play immediatly. He's very valuable to them. We don't match up well with the Red Sox.

 

isn't ellsbury still in the minors? even if he's up with the big club it's not like he's starting or gets much PT. The sox do need bullpen help..I think Garcia would be a good fit in Boston.

Coco Crisp would have a heck of a price tag. I really like the guy. He had a huge slump and Red Sox fans were about to run him out of town on the first train

OF Terry Evans Traded to Anaheim

The St. Louis Cardinals announced Wednesday evening that they have acquired right-handed pitcher Jeff Weaver and cash considerations from the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in exchange for minor league outfielder Terry Evans. Evans hitting .310 with 22 home runs this season, was quickly becoming one of the most popular players in the Cardinals Minor League system.

 

 

Weaver, who will turn 30 in August, was designated for assignment by the Angels last week after going 3-10 with a 6.29 ERA in 16 games. Weaver worked into the 6th inning in 12 of his 16 starts for the Angels this year while compiling 88.2 IP with 62 strikeouts. He made his final start for the Angels on June 27.

 

The 6-5, 200-pound former number one draft choice (Detroit-1998) has compiled a career mark of 81-97 with a 4.55 ERA in 1484.2 innings pitched. He is just one strikeout shy of 1,000 for his career.

 

"We feel that Weaver is someone who can come in and lend immediate help and depth to our rotation," said Cardinals' Senior Vice President/General Manager Walt Jocketty. "Tony, (La Russa) and Dave Duncan have studied plenty of video from his starts, and feel that Jeff is still a very capable pitcher."

 

In his eight-plus seasons with Detroit (1999-2002), the Yankees (2002-03), Dodgers (2004-05) and Angels (2006), Weaver has won 10 or more games five times, including a career-high 14 last season. He's surpassed the 200 innings mark on five occasions and is ranked 19th among active pitchers in fewest walks/9 IP (2.46) and 21st among active players in strikeout-to-walk ratio (2.46).

Red Sox fans on SoSH (best baseball forum on the net period) don't want to run Crisp out of town. They had a poll about a month ago and the vast majority want Crisp back next year.

 

Fact: He was injured for most of the year last year and Red Sox fans don't run the Front Office.

Keep an eye on Red Sox prospect Jacoby Ellsbury, who could take over for CF Coco Crisp in 2008 or even sometime next season. "He's like a combination of Mark Kotsay and Johnny Damon," a rival scout says of the Arizona Fall League standout. "He can't throw, which reminds you of Damon, but his body is a lot more like Kotsay's. Ellsbury is more live and smoother than early Kotsay. And his arm doesn't impact him that much. He's so smooth and graceful, he can really go get it in center."

Evans continues to elevate his game

10/27/2006 10:00 AM ET

By Tim Leonard / Special to MLB.com

 

Jeremy Bonderman has shown that being traded for Jeff Weaver can help your career. The young right-hander was a key member of the Detroit staff that has the Tigers in the World Series. Angels prospect Terry Evans is hoping the same thing can happen for him.

Evans, the 24-year-old outfielder that Los Angeles received in its deal for Weaver midway through the year, posted a nice season (33 homers and 37 steals between Class A and Double-A) and has continued his solid performance as a member of the Scottsdale Scorpions in the Arizona Fall League.

 

Evans has seven hits in his first six games, including six hits and seven RBIs in his first four games, and is the only Angels farmhand who will play in Friday's Rising Stars Showcase.
