    Edwin Encarnacion - DH

    You’re going to be devastated when the Sox don’t sign Grandal.

    A Realistic Offseason

    Splitting hairs at that point. Either way, they could still put together a competitive team for next season while not risking too much of their future if they limited their FA signings this winter to only 1-2 year commitments. Not saying I’m advocating for that approach but it certainly is one way to field a competitive team in 2020 while maintaining financial flexibility beyond 2020.

    If that’s the approach, give me Ryu, Hamels, Calhoun, Encarnacion, and Harris.

    Understood and that’s where I’d slot him in the future. #3 behind Gio and hopefully a healthy Kopech.

    He could DH for the Sox ala Ohtani (only half-joking)

    MLBTR predicted the Twins sign him at 4/$72M. I would definitely do that if I’m the CWS.

    Agreed. I know everyone here loves Wheeler but I’m thinking it will be Madbum as the premier FA signing this winter and I’m fine with that.

    Well, the Sox can always sign him next winter if he opts out. If he’s still producing and Abreu is not, it could be ideal timing to bring him in.

    Good luck with that. https://www.spotrac.com/mlb/houston-astros/payroll/#

    There’s still hope for you 😉

    I mean, all you need to do is watch the dude play. He’s one guy that I just can’t wrap my head around his off the charts defensive rankings.

    We will know in a few days but we still don’t know if JD will opt out so all this discussion may be for naught (unless CWS trade for him). I’d put the odds at 50/50 he opts out. 6 months ago, I was much more confident he’d opt out.

    Grandal

    Agree to disagree

    Grandal

    It’s simple. I’ve watched Grandal catch quite a bit and I believe he’s much closer to the career 16 bWAR player per BR than the career 32 fWAR player per FG. At just a tick over 2 bWAR per season that’s not bad but he’s going to get paid much more than most 31 year old 2 WAR/season catchers would. Pass. Regarding JDM, he’s best suited as an AL DH but I also believe he could very well post a 3 WAR season next year as an OF, ala 2019 Jorge Soler (also not a major league quality OF).

    Grandal

    Not pushing it but simply pointing out it’s a possibility. It’s unlikely an NL team signs JDM but at a discounted price in the range of $17M AAV I believe you’d find at least a couple NL teams interested. And what does JDM have to do with overrated Grandal anyway?
