    We'll see how they handle it. It seems odd to me that anyone would of paid for the whole season with this pandemic looming since January. In any event - it looks like baseball has every intention of playing some kind of season. Here is an article with quotes from Manfred: https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/28955618/rob-manfred-says-table-regarding-mlb-return

    Sale to have TJS

    Sale brought so many good times to us Sox fans. I wish him the best in his recovery.
  3. Why cut it off so early? So if this all blows over by August 1st, why do you think they can't play from there? Even if you have a 50-70 game season, how is that not better than no baseball at all?

    Y2Jimmy > National Reports (Moncada extended 5 years)

    Sorry if this was posted already. An interesting take from Boston going back to the Sale trade.

    McCann Trade Speculation

    I would keep him. I think they would get garbage back for him. If they keep him, between time off for Grandal, and the possibility of Grandal playing a little 1B here and there - he could easily catch 50-60 games. Plus, if the Sox trade him and Grandal gets hurt, then we're really screwed. There's nothing competent to hold down the fort.

    Y2Jimmy > National Reports (Moncada extended 5 years)

    I'd suspect they will break that streak. But really, to me this is about winning the World Series. I'd rather the Sox be like the Nationals than the Twinkies.

    Y2Jimmy > National Reports (Moncada extended 5 years)

    This is such a unique approach. They are locking up guys that are mostly unproven, but loaded with talent. It can pay off big, or blow up in their face. I like the chances though!
  8. Boom or bust potential for both sides. I'm good with it. Hopefully he stays at last year's level.

    KW says "no Puig"

    There seems to be untapped upside to both Mazara and Puig, while they've mostly been mostly mediocre in recent years. At this point, the Sox already have Mazara, so I don't see any reason to bring Puig in.

    Kris Bryant

    Assuming we could put him in RF, since Moncada is a far better defensive 3B. I wonder if some kind of extension could be worked out in advance of a trade? Seems unlikely with Boras being his agent. With the Cubs seemingly disrespecting him, you'd almost think the idea of coming to the south side and killing it would be appealing to Kris. I think I'd do Vaughn + Stiever/Dunning (only one of them), plus maybe Rutherford. Would the Cubs want Vaughn while they have Rizzo? Well, Rizzo is starting to sound a bit annoyed with the Cubs and they recently refused to discuss an extension with him. Also Theo could view him as a flippable asset, even if they don't have room for Vaughn. But that's a lot to give up for just 2 years...unless he re-signs. But man would our lineup be ridiculous.

    USA Today projections

    I'm totally fine with this projection. The Sox have such a wide swath for what could happen next year. Anywhere between 70 and 100 wins won't surprise me a whole lot.
  12. I'm fine with this. Yeah he improves them for now. But he's been injury prone...and this has a high probability of being a bad contract at some point. Before long, he could help the Sox cement their hold on this division when he ties up the Twins payroll.

    Castellanos to Reds , rumored 4/64M

    Jerry Reinsdorf is not going to shell out $350 mil for Betts. Why do you guys keep torturing yourselves with this impossible fantasy?

    Castellanos to Reds , rumored 4/64M

    That's a bit much for such a dry market. How about 3/42?
