    What doesn't make sense is the Sox continually playing someone who is in their 6th season batting .225, with minimal power, no potential, on a team that has no potential for making the postseason and young kids in AAA who may benefit from gaining MLB experience now.

    Agree.  The Sox have middle infielders Sanchez, Johnson, Semien, and Saladino in Triple A who could all benefit from having some MLB at-bats.  They shouldn't waste those at-bats on Beckham.  He's the past, and not a very bright one either.

    John missed the Financial control part about the NON TENDER.  The Sox do not have to bring this guy back in 2015....and do NOT have to pay him millions of dollars.


    Let him learn to play LF and hit for power somewhere else.


    ROTFLMFAO!!

    Somewhere else?  Didn't we learn on this board there was zero interest in him elsewhere?  Is Rob's old man league looking for a left-fielder?

    Jesus, why don't you just go after Nick Swisher and Edwin Jackson while you're at it?
