  1. Although I was a child at the time, I remember that streak well. I also remember that horrible call in Boston (Agee was safe) in August of 1967 on NBC National that started the collapse. That was quite the post by xSouth detailing the specific events that haave frustrated Sox fans over the last 50 years.
  2. I don't know about that if he views the long term offers as modest. (of course, I don't know what the Sox offer actually is; but if it is 7/$210, I would view that as modest). And I am of the belief that the Sox need to beat the competition by 20% or so to secure his services. Actually if he doesn't sign with the Sox, I hope he takes a short term deal. We don't really need him this year, and the Sox major league club may be more presentable a year from now and thus not require a 20% bonus or so many FOMs.
  3. And what is that point. The Sox can stick with its 7/210 offer (or whatever it is), wait there until someone tops it, Manny remains dissatisfied and won't sign, then, whoosh, a contender offers him 1/$40 or 2/$75. What's the Sox next move?

    Rays to Sign Avi

    Amen
  5. But they don't have the pitching; and they are light on O unless Anderson and Moncada improve; which they may or may not. The Sox have at least 3 top CF prospects...just not the position to go for a FA. Jay and Alonso just aren't top shelf talents...by a long shot. Sox need another year to sort things out.
  6. Well, the same source (Nightengale) who says the Sox are "expected" to sign him also said 3 days ago that the Sox offered him a contract of "about $200 million" Maybe they increased, will increase.....
  7. It would be nice to know what the offer is. If it's 7/low 200s (which is what I believe the more respected sources have said), the Sox may lead, but I doubt he'd sign for that anytime soon.
  8. Well, that would be something new and different.....
  9. Don't laugh too hard - the Sox may have to put Machado at SS.
  10. I don't mean to be flip, but isn't this about offering the most $$$?
  11. Of all the teams, the Sox should be able to wait the longest. Nothing else to do, really.,,,,or hopefully.

    2019 OD Bullpen Prediction Thread

    That's a lot of pitchers for 4 spots. But most have options, fortunately. Frare Bummer Hamilton Covey or Stephens (one is 5th starter)
  13. While I don't disagree with you in principle, I hardly think that the results of trades over the last 6 years put the Sox at risk of negotiating in bad faith with other teams.
  14. The point is they've been willing to give up young talent in trades (and not just stunted prospects) for 2nd tier vets. I'm not pointing fingers - heck Fliers helped the Astros for a year or 2. But they have the prospect depth to trade from and are willing to trade it which a)is why it makes sense to trade with them and b)I hope the Sox can keep a pipeline flowing like they have.
  15. Domingo Santana, Josh Hader, Adrian Houser and Brett Phillips for Mike Fiers and Carlos Gomez.
