    Yep. Just connect the dots. Plus, he’s going to be relatively cheap, limited number of suitors, and the Sox already have several other Cubans on the roster to make him feel at home. I’d be surprised if it didn’t happen tbh.

    Me too, though I'd rather trade for Polanco or Mazara. Neither should be that expensive.

    He literally thinks we’ll sign Matt Moore and rock a $75M payroll instead of signing any of Cole, Strasburg, Wheeler, Bumgarner, Ryu, Hamels, Kuechel, Ororizzi, Gibson, Roark, Pineda, Miley, Wood, Porcello, & Gio Gonzalez.  That’s 15 guys that are leagues better than Moore and he actually thinks we won’t sign any of any them.  It may have been the most pessimistic post I have ever seen on this board other than that one time Parkman predicted the team plane would go down because of bad storms.

    That was a joke. It was more of a "How could this possibly be worse?" Thing.

    Putting Moncada in cleanup has changed the look of the lineup for the better.  Robert and Madrigal added to the lineup make it look absolutely sleek.

    I wish Ricky would swap Moncada and Abreu. Moncada should hit 3rd and Abreu 4th for this season. 

    Just FYI, next year when the Sox call up Robert and Madrigal, I'd line them up like this:

    He’s worth more than Mazara and the Sox shouldn’t need him as an everyday player next season.

    Does anyone think that Rutherford and Gonzalez would get it done for Mazara? Mazara would then be a placeholder for Walker. 

    I'm also not ready to completely give up on Fulmer yet.

    Beard hasn't been able to hit at all so far. But at the very least, he could be our version of Terrance Gore in the postseason. He's that fast.

    Give him time. Mississippi HS baseball isn't exactly the greatest level of competition.

    That is a joke I know but would most posters here be happy if the Sox went on a huge run and finished close to .500 or be upset with the lower draft pick?

    I'm happy either way. Both scenarios have their pros and cons. If they go on a run it could help sell a marquee FA to join the Sox this winter.

    Glass double.

    Now 3-3, 2B, HR, 2 RBI, 2 R

    I know it's early, but the Sox 2019 draft class has a chance to be really special. They have a metric shit ton of high upside players.  Beard is the most intriguing.

  8. I've been thinking about what I posted in this thread for a while, and really it does me no good to constantly b**** about getting the short end of the stick. Being angry and bitter does me no good, I should just move forward from here and try to make the best of my situation as it exists today.

    Not with a glove on his hand.

    Agreed, offensively though Devers has been better.  Moncada is a well above average 3B on D. It's really hard when you're competing with Bregman, Devers, Chapman and Jose Ramirez to get a ASG nod. There are 5 superstar 3B in each league and only 3 can make the ASG. 

    Moncada just seems like one of those guys that is going to be overlooked because of the team he plays for.

    I'm aware (would've been a shoe-in at 2B).

    As good as Moncada has been, Devers has been better. It's crazy how many great 3B there are in baseball. When you think of 3B historically, only Mike Schmidt and Adrian Beltre have done what these guys are doing. It seems like half of baseball has a great 3B.
