    Kopech sitting out 2020

    JMO, but it also seems like going after someone like Mookie is out of the question now. Not that it was very realistic before, but I always thought there was an outside chance IF Giolito, Cease, and Kopech all were good in 2020. Without that certainty in the rotation, there's even less of a chance of making a splurge on Mookie.

    Sox Summer Camp Catch All Thread

    Apparently I'm not smart enough to embed a tweet, but what's the deal with Fegan's tweet about Renteria - did he test positive and I missed it?

    KW says "no Puig"

    Not sure I agree that this is going to be a station to station team. Abreu and EE, sure, but Eloy is more athletic on the basepaths than you give him credit for. And they're going to be surrounded with the likes of Moncada, Robert, Anderson, Madrigal, etc.

    Sox Org Coaching Updates

    Maybe a dumb question, but what exactly is the role of the hitting and pitching coordinators?

    Sox may have interest in Maybin, per fake Cishek

    Couldn't agree more. Engel seems like a pretty ideal (realistic) 4th outfielder IMO
  8. Housing costs are included in the basket of goods in the CPI which is reflected already in inflation. You'll get no argument from me on the absurdity of today's educational costs, though.
  9. Well, $11.55 isn't a living wage so I'm not sure how that makes your point more valid.
  10. Minimum wage was established at $0.25 in the FDR era, which is significantly lower when adjusted for inflation than today's federal minimum wage (which we all agree isn't a living wage). According to CNN, the highest the minimum wage has ever been when adjusted for inflation was less than $12, still not a living wage. https://www.cnn.com/interactive/2019/business/us-minimum-wage-by-year/index.html
  11. Not even close to being accurate.
  12. That's my read on it as well.
  13. That's a better deal than we thought, right? No need to worry about manipulating innings if he underperforms or is borderline. Just buy him out of the final year for $1.5 mil
