NorthShorepsbc: "Whoever the Red Sox get from the Cubs the Sox will claim he is one of the players they wanted from the beginning and the Cubs will say he is a good player but we have other players to cover that. Who actually knows if the player will really be a "quality minor leaguer"."
scstephe: "The Sox can have every minor league player Jim Hendry drafted...just dont expect them to be a quality player, more like mediocre or below average or bust."
pickalpha: "The whole thing should have been setteled before he left. Personally I'm glad he's gone, He was good for a few years then started trading the farm away. If he builds through the farm the cubs will do well, if he doesn't then expect hard times. For the WS's we won, my thought is alot of that had to do with Francona, I hated seeing him leave."
sherrerd: "Free Chicago deep dish pizza for all Boston residents."
MELOAI23: "IMO, I feel its going to be the pitcher Trey McNutt, but then again this has gone on so long who knows and quite frankly who cares."
