    A's interested in Andrew Vaughn/Sox in Montas

    Did he change his username at some point?

    People sometimes randomly acquire sources. I had a source for a couple of years and had good scoops on various things, and then my source went away. I have no idea who Pal is, literally never seen the username here before this thread, but I wouldn't judge him or her solely based on them not having a reliable source 18 months ago.

    I'm sorry you're having a hard time following. 🤷

    I disagree, but ok, I guess.

    I get you don't like how the money has been spent this offseason, I don't think any of us do, but that doesn't change the fact that the Sox have NOT spent $4.2M on Cueto. If he earns the entire $4.2M (he won't), then that either means he has pitched really well or we desperately needed him to stick around, in either case, that sounds like he would be worth it at that point. The rest of the money spent poorly is irrelevant to this contract.

    That's how I read it based on Passan's tweet. Maybe that's inaccurate, but the fact that it's a minor league deal already tells us none of the money is guaranteed. Also he has an opt out for May 15th if the Sox haven't called him up by then.

    As far as I can tell, prorated based in days with the team. If he's with the team for half the season, he gets half the $4.2M. If he's there for only 10% of the season, he only gets 10% of the money ($420,000).

    Cueto's deal is prorated based on how long much he pitches for the Sox ie, none of it is guaranteed.

    No doubt. I still give it a C grade overall. I'm just saying given where we were at a week ago with what was realistically available, he did a great job at the buzzer.

    The last 2 moves have been so minor, yet so desperately needed for this team. Combine that with the Pollock move and Hahn really did a great job buttoning this team up at the end of the Spring.

    Sox Acquire Reese McGuire for Zack Collins, Officially

    I expect Ketel Marte to eventually join the Sox in about 4 years. 😑😑
  12. At the time, the trade was fine. Then, as seems to be a theme for everyone except Tepera, he came to the Sox and got considerably worse. Most of his rate stats stayed extremely consistent, but the dude lost all of his power. Went from 37 XBH in 96 games with Cleveland to a measly 7 XBH in 53 games with the Sox. Even Madrigal outslugged Cesar with 16 XBH in nearly the exact same amount of games and PA's with the Sox in 2021.

    Sox Acquire Reese McGuire for Zack Collins, Officially

    Funny, my off-season plan for this year included trading Kimbrel to the Jays for McGuire + a couple of lower level prospects. I then moved Collins in a separate trade and McGuire became the Sox backup. "We know Jerry doesn't like to waste money, and he won't here. Toronto needs bullpen help and they have some money to spend. Jordan Romano was very good for Toronto last season as their primary closer, but he is far less entrenched in that role than Liam Hendriks, so Kimbrel would take the closing duties for a year in Toronto while Romano takes the 8th inning role. The Jays are a natural fit here not only because they need RP help, and have money, but because they have a glut of 3 decent catchers, with their #1 prospect, also a catcher, about to join the fray. In discussing with Jays fans, they basically put equal value on catchers McGuire and Danny Jansen. I ultimately chose McGuire for the role of backup catcher for the Sox due to his left-handed bat, being known for his defense, and for having an above-average arm to control the opponent running game, a glaring weakness for the Sox. McGuire also ranks around top 10ish in catcher framing as well. Anything he adds with the bat, which seems to be better in the Majors than when he was a prospect, will just be gravy." In previous off-season plans I've included trades for Pollock, but I can't seem to find those write-ups as easily.
