  1. How is it possible that Hahn has blown this offseason this much?

    Grading Rick Hahn

    Whoever gave him an A, I would love to hear the rationale.

    I’m not excluding his trades. Just responding to what you said. Outside of Eloy/Cease, not sure his trades have been stellar. But as you said, still a long ways to go.

    Wasn’t it a given that trading Sale, Quintana, and Eaton would yield top prospects?

    What’s your grade for Rick since the rebuild began?
  6. Hahn is the Clark Griswold of MLB GMs. Don’t let the fancy degree fool you.
  7. I’m sorry but how can you have any faith that Hahn could land Harper even if they wanted to? they say if you can’t spot the sucker at the table then it’s you, and I think that’s clearly the case with Hahn. He’s way out of his league. The other GMs and agents are playing monkey in the middle with Rick.
  8. I truly think they lose some diehards this offseason if they don’t land one of Machado/Harper. I don’t think people are blowing smoke today.
  9. The bottom line is that we have a very poor front office and ownership. Ive said this before but any idiot could’ve run an auction for Chris Sale but in everything else Hahn and company have been downright mediocre at best and miserable at worst. Sorry not sorry
  10. I said this 10x on the boards. The Sox NEEDED to overpay to make sure they didn’t finish a close second.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    Don’t blame Hector Gomez if Reinsdorf refuses to go to 300

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    Left high and dry. Should’ve spent the money along the way on decent players if you weren’t going to pony up. They had every chance to close the deal and didn’t.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    I disagree. Their actions including keeping payroll free, tanking, etc have made it an “at any cost” play. There’s no viable plan B. They’ve put themselves in this situation.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    Yes because that’s the position the Sox are in. They’re not the Yankees where they can tie and land a top player

    Here’s the reality: whether the Sox sign these guys or not, they’ll end up having every chance (and then some) to nail down the deal. Obviously won’t be a situation where someone woos them over without the Sox having a chance. This is why I’ve said from the beginning that the Sox need to overpay one to make sure we land at least one. The upside of getting a “good contract” pales in comparison to missing out. As such, they need to overpay to make 100% sure you get it done.
