    Trade Whispers - Starting Pitchers

    Instead of being a lock down 6th or 7th inning guy....Crochet can be the middle 3 innings guy when the 4 and 5 starters only go 3-4 innings. Wasting him because "the money" has been spent and we can only shop at the clearance meat department instead of getting a steak

    Thank You Jerry Reinsdorf!

    Yes let’s celebrate Jerry being in the bottom third of payroll during this rebuild averaging between 20-50 million under league average. Now he ties his gm’s hands in signing a SP over a few million bucks. Thanks ya cheap b@!*! ard Go find another business where you can count every straw. I am sooooo frustrated with this right now.

    All of you saying well have more money next year, we already have over $20 million from the extensions signed last couple years. If he extends Gio and Lynn that’s about a wrap

    MLB 2020-21 off season catch all

    It hasn’t gone yet but on Yankees Twitter it sounds like Frazier, Schmidt or Garcia (top 2 pitching prospects), and Florial #7 prospect.

    Looks like Frazier and 2-3 of their top pitching prospects in their top 5 but not Jasson. In Sox speak that’s Madrigal (not here because they have DJ), one of the big 3 and Stiever/Heuer. We can’t do that but signing an $8 million #4 ain’t getting it done. Avoid the top 3 and go get someone. Understand it’s gonna cost 3-4 guys though if you won’t give your best. Time to make the tough decisions since we won’t spend anymore

    So if the Yankees trade an MLB OF, and 2-3 of their top 5 prospects for Luis Castillo are we still feeling good? I’m glad Jerry isn’t ok with second place in the division anymore but second place in the league stinks just as bad.......

    Corey Kluber to Yanks per Passan

    If it's what it takes, give him 10 and incentives. Look at the rest of the FA pool besides Bauer. If we aren't making a trade, value side with the most upside this is it!

    DH Options

    But the Sox aren't going to head toward that tax number THIS YEAR anyway. If they sign someone for longer than that at DH it could be a problem with all of the extensions they have done the last couple of years adding more to the payroll come 2022-23 and the hopes of getting Gio an extension before this year starts.

    I'm not sure on this either. Speaking Metrically, Richards doesn't do anything special, so I don't get it. Besides Kluber, where is a FA with any upside other than Bauer? Maybe Kevin Gausman at about $10 million? If the asking price is through the roof like the Burnes deal mentioned above, I guess we go into the season with ????? at 4 and 5......after you revisit Musgrove again

    Trade Whispers - Starting Pitchers

    True. I was just going off the 4 names most mentioned lately but I agree that would be a slick trade even more so.....I'm wondering what that takes.....would it be much less???

    Trade Whispers - Starting Pitchers

    I love having talks like this. You make me really think about stuff. Of the 4 guys mentioned in trade talks for a package like this (Gray, Castillo, Burnes, Woodruff), who available in free agency not named Trevor Bauer comes with the current success or upside of any of these 4? There aren't any unless I'm totally boneheading it (which I may be:)). Just as an example here are comparisons metric wise to guys available: Jose Quintana - Cole Hamels, Eric Lauer, Ross Detwiler - of 13 categories they measure, he is above 50% in 2, BB% and barrel Garrett Richards - German Marquez, Zack Wheeler (excellent velocity and spin.....maybe, but what is the price when average schmucks are getting $10-$12 million?) Now on the other hand: Corbin Burnes - Yu Darvish, Walker Beuhler, Zack Wheeler - in the RED in 11 of 13 categories Sonny Gray - Red in 12 of 13 categories Luis Castillo - 12 of 13 Brandon Woodruff 12 of 13 That's why when you can get guys like this for $5 million on down for 3-4 years in my opinion you give up bats that are not elite, relievers, and SP you don't know about because you have a plethora of them. I honestly look forward to your rebuttal because I think this is fun! To me, the Sox still have about $20-$25 million they may "safely" spend. If it takes $12 million to get an ok #4 we aren't getting much else of value. If we make a trade for a guy like these, all of a sudden you have another $15 million to get a legit bat (or maybe only $7-$8 million if you sign LaStella IF they trade Madrigal). I for one am for this plan

    So not paying any attention to the overall quality a team with a horrible farm system, just what # prospects they are is like comparing the Padres system to the Cubs system right now. The Cubs could trade their top 3 prospects and it wouldn't be as good as 3 guys from San Diego's 11-20. That's why we use that quality to build. What irreplaceable part are we losing? Who in that group has All Star / MVP caliber upside? That's why I keep scratching my head.......

    Really? Which of those 4 guys coming from us was a #1 overall prospect right now? Moncada was the #1 prospect in the game and Kopech was top 30. Madrigal is at #36 and no others to be found. Maybe if you are talking about 4 players being similar but that's where the similarities end. Burnes isn't Sale but these names aren't those either

    Maybe even it's one of those talks where it's, "Hey we are interested in Burnes, here's a package." "Nope, we aren't trading Burnes but maybe Woodruff?". Question, if Milwaukee says, take out Madrigal and replace with Kelley and we have a deal for Burnes (Kelley, Heuer, Stiever, Sheets) do you pull the trigger? I still would as it's a place we have depth, but honestly even with Madrigal you are offering Milwaukee 3 of your top 10 prospects / MLB ready types. I think there would be quite a few teams willing to listen from that buffet of choices
