    Successful Plan B; What’s Next?

    Nobody will be b****ing if the Sox go to the World Series. I assume that's what we're trying to do. Or not.

    I don't care what they offer him. They need a #2 starter. I'm not wedded to Wheeler, but apparently the Sox were.

    The reality is if you wanted Wheeler that badly make him an offer he can't refuse.

    Edwin Encarnacion

    Encarnacion has hit 30 homers for 8 straight years and posted an .875 OPS last year. Of course I'd love to have him.

    2019 Lineup vs. 2020 Lineup WAR

    This is why it is stupid to not go for it now.

    Expectations

    With two starting pitchers added there was absolutely no reason they couldn’t battle for the division.

    Offseason 2019-2020 MLB Catch All Thread

    Profits are passed through to the limited partners annually. It is gone now.

    Oh, I forgot Covey was actually our #4 starter. nevermind.

    should be closer to -3 WAR

    I think some of those guys are deceased. Though still may be better than Covey.

    The market is rapidly running out of FA starters that are better than Dylan Covey.

    Time to rebuild the rebuild?

    Is there any chance Ivan Nova might be willing to pitch for us? Assuming we pay him a 10% premium?

    No, the game in FA is you pay through the nose because you have a desperate need.

    Sox acquire Nomar Mazara for Steele Walker

    This whole situation would make a lot more sense if someone in the Sox org had a strong view that they had some specific solution that would make him a much better player. Remember like when Walt Hriniak was going to do wonders for Cory Snyder.

    Expectations

    Well we won 72 last year and added Grandal and Mazara. I figure we should be good for about 95 wins this year.

    Time to rebuild the rebuild?

    The logic isn't wrong. If you're not going for it now, why waste those years of control?

    Are you in some way related to Dylan Covey?

    This is exactly what I would do given where we stand today.

    The ownership structure is some sort of tax sheltered investment scheme. the passive owners get cut a dividend check at the end of the year and everyone is happy. there is no incentive to "grow the business."

    Apparently Uncle Jerry only gave Rick $130MM to take to the school book fair and the good books cost more than that.

    $12MM over 5 years is like MLB pocket lint.

    1-2% more on an offer isn't going to get someone to move away from their home. If you want an employee, offer 10% more. Otherwise you really didn't want him that badly.

    People are assuming Kopech will be good to go opening day. I think that would be a huge mistake.

    The cost of starting pitching

    If Wheeler was your guy, give him what he wanted to come here. Don't say "We had the best offer (by 1%)"

    Successful Plan B; What’s Next?

    Yeah, but nobody is trading for him until that is assured.
