  1. I never really understood the wisdom in trading away the International Draft Money, unless it was just to prevent them from wasting it themselves. I know that Sox also saved half a mill on the Beef Wellington trade, but there have been other International money deals that were less obvious.

    2020 MLB Draft Thread

    I liked this rule change. There was no reason for catchers to be sitting ducks for some no neck base runner trying to impress. I'll never forget when Sox catcher Jamie ??? got tattooed by Torii Hunter. Still one of the dirtiest plays I ever saw. Wonder if somebody here has that on video.

    John, can you list a few of them, please? I'm not disagreeing with you, I just want to see them.
  4. Hoarders are usually Cub fans.

    Y2Jimmy > National Reports (Moncada extended 5 years)

    Every Red Sox fan that I talked to right after the trade loved it. Bob Ryan of the Globe was on ESPN, and he said he liked it, partly because they kept their best prospect (in Ryan's opinion) in Devers. A year from now we can all evaluate the trade, but it looks good for our side.

    FS: White Sox saw something in Codi Heuer

    Tell me more. I saw his 2019 stats, too. I'm interested. And, why wouldn't it be with WSox? Where do you think he will start the season?
  8. I used to say the same thing about Hawkins a few years ago, but this Burger nonsense is worse.

    Are you telling us that you prefer Tapia to McCann? Not close. McCann much better.

    When he first came up, his fastball was straight as can be. Any better now?

    Keith Law's Top 100 for 2020

    When Law went from ESPN to The Athletic, was that a step up or a step down?

    I don't see how pitch framing works?

    Yesterday I'm at the brand new Spring Training facility of the Braves, and it is spectacular, and I am walking around the park well before game time. While looking down into the Braves' bullpen, there is a Coach feeding balls into a pitching machine throwing not to a hitter, but to young catchers who are obviously working on their framing technique. Never saw the drill done that way before.
