  1. First game is tonight so might as well get this rolling. I am not very positive toward the bears. To me in the nfl if you aren't rising you are falling, and a lot of the bears media seem to be trying to make the case that this 2020 bears team would be a playoff team in 2019. But I see a better lions, vikings team, and the packers are the packers. NFC west looks tough, but maybe east and south are bad and bears can fight into a wild card.

    New Rumor from Hector

    he can barely use twitterI don't know why this would be a surprise. But he's probably right in at least that if sox signed yadi, the old baseball guard like nightengale will faint from happiness. He'll barely be able to get his tweet out without crying.

    I don't think this cruz stuff is true, but the sox blowing the budget on the top DH and top closer would be hilarious because it would both subvert and reinforce longstanding opinions on how sox operate.

    I don’t know how you figure that. He literally said it was done from the Yankees side

    Trade Whispers - Starting Pitchers

    Honestly the only one I think will be close is Odorizzi if he goes to twins. And I love Paxton but it would be amazing if the dude gives 120 innings in a year.

    See if I'm sox I offer Walker 3/30 with a $8million 2021 and just trade him if he's superfluous or an obstacle.

    will happily take the bet that musgrove outperforms non-bauer free agents over next two seasons.

    Cincinnati should sign Rodon. Or San Fran.

    Frazier is obviously a really good talent but the dude is in Arb 1 just like Castillo, and andujar is a reclamation and tough position ally. I don’t don’t that’s the best talent package but a curious one for reds to make.

    I think Ptatc Is right that that is owners logic I think DA is right in practice. Total salary wise it won’t change much. The no fielding power hitting player has not fared much better than utility guys on the market. What it does do is get veterans a better chance at a job. it also improves the game, which ptatc is right to point out is not a concern of baseball owners. The least concerned of ruining their product of any sport.

    Interesting guys to me that could be at that level. Do I think all of these are good signings? No, interesting is a mixture of stories, previous success or previous Sox interest. Mike Leake - opted out in 2020. Heavy control pitcher who always seemed to be a sox target. Not a guy you’d expect a lot more than innings and hoping for 4.5 ERa. But, could be an interesting guy for Lynn to talk with. Archer - shoulder could be an issue, but he’s a “get the pirates stink off” guy Hamels - see status of shoulder. Would likely need to be sold on winning team. Wainwright- went from joke to a pretty decent option. Again, he wouldn’t get paid like he would other years so would have to want TLR over retirement/cards Folty - Obviously, if his weight came back and velo looked encouraging, getting that 2018 fb would be incredible Chatwood/Jimmy Nelson based on injuries. Assuming Paxton is higher cost

    I think Odorizzi would also be really strong but he also appears priced out.

    I’d say for specifically Q and Perez they at least were likely to give 160 IP, which the scary part in this group is it’s more like the Gio Gonzalez group. Still, some guys in here will pop. Archer is interesting. We just need to get lucky

    I’d like to see if we could get Trevor Williams on a minor league deal

    It is insane how Teheran is only 29.
  18. Not gonna be a lotta drama but After knowing it for like 2 years: Norge Vera is offish (1.5 mill) Yolquei Cespedes is offish (2.05 mill) I’m sure we’ll get great stuff from futuresox and jimmy today.

    It’s the level they’ve had the least success last decade
  20. I am gonna say this is wrong. I actually think this boards hit rate on its fetishes are pretty good.

    Maybe if he McCullers it and goes curve curve curve. His curve is very good at getting swings.
