    Sox to talk about Semien with Boras

    Jesse Rogers was on WS Weekly and said he’s heard more rumblings about Semien than Ray or any top pitchers. He doesn’t think Schwarber signs until after lockout due to NL DH resolution needing to happen.

    We can excuse it away…shortened season. See Semien, Marcus.

    Lol…only once and luckily nothing was going on so it wasn’t too big of a deal.

    He didn’t have to be. Kimbrel had to be better as closer than Diego Castillo or Kittredge in Tampa…because they were looking at adding him for $5.33 million as the defined CLOSER. Balta and Tony LaRussa could have known this without watching Kimbrel with the Cubs once in 2021. And the Rays did come up short in the post season, so they obviously had concerns. As far as the Dodgers go, they were considering moving on from Jansen…and it would have been a tryout for the 2022 option as well with Jansen an impending FA. Now you can argue that the Dodgers had a lot of bullpen talent, but there was always the nagging feeling that Jansen would implode again in the postseason or some point during the second half. Whether as co-closer or supplanting Jansen, they had their own vision…but it wasn’t a must have like Scherzer and Turner. And, once again, they came up short as well despite adding 2 of the Top 5 talents available at the deadline. Their starting pitching ran out of depth, in the end…forcing Buehler to go twice on short rest was too much to ask. In no world did it make sense to pay two closers that kind of money…with Hendriks already in place for three subsequent seasons. Having Kimbrel around even in 2022 was illogical, too.

    I'm not sure if I read it anywhere to be honest. Call it an educated guess.

    He went 2-7 with a 4.66 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP in 2020. That’s fine?

    No I wasn’t smarter than them, I liked that deal, but I had watched approximately 0 cub games in 3 years. I would continue to suggest that “a person who watched zero cub games couldn’t figure this out so no one could” remains a poor standard for a billion dollar business and not an acceptable excuse.

    How was the Thanksgiving dinner? How many times did you excuse yourself to feverishly refresh SoxTalk for new rumors?

    You were correct…the baseball gods are saving that pain for tomorrow as I fly back from Chicago to Nashville.

    Has this been reported? Not challenging, just curious if speculation.

    I believe it is the Mets and Mariners.

    Brian Balta, smarter than Rick Hahn, Andrew Friedman, & Erik Neander confirmed. Glad you knew from 20 shitty innings in 2019 that the best reliever in baseball over the previous 52.1 innings was suddenly going to fall apart. I really hope they fire KW and hire you to be President of Baseball Operations because you literally outsmarted two of the best organizations in all of baseball. And given this was such an obvious mistake to you, what actions do you suggest they take from prevent this from happening again?

    No, I want Conforto for RF and/or Gausman (or Scherzer) as a SP. Those guys will eat up a lot of salary, which makes eating part of Kimbrel’s salary very challenging.

    Heat couldn’t miss a three late…bulls were very unlike themselves in turnover front and Vuc was straight trash late in the game (and throughout the game). Meanwhile Bulls missed a ton of open looks throughout. The Pacers and Rockets games were brutal though.

    Vuc is having a subpar season, fer sure. And who wouldn't want an MVP center? Maybe our guy will get it together; long way to go yet. Coby? Even if he gets it together, who wants a player who has a good game every ten days?

    LOL. So Bellinger or Vaughn. You would rather have Vaughn in RF?

    Some fans think that is Vaughn's ceiling. Kimbrel plus Vaughn should bring back a player or two of intrerest, especially if NL adopts the DH and the Dodgers don't sign Jansen who is 34.
