    No, I went back and edited my post. They agreed to an extension in April.

    Martin Maldonado is a free agent this year. edit: oops nvm, the Astros and Maldonado agreed to an extension in April.
  5. That fake MLB Executive Burner account mentioned the Orioles as a possibility for Kimbrel. Anthony Santander as the piece coming back to the Sox. Lol
  6. Shocking. I wonder if the Sox purposely did this to drum up interest to see what they can get for him and than when it comes time to decide on the option, they will either trade him or decline the option. This was their plan all along.

  8. Yes but the article also says the market is thin for relievers.
  9. https://sports.yahoo.com/mlb-rumors-craig-kimbrel-likely-160338983.html
  10. I’m not advocating on keeping him. I think they should try trading him. However, they gave up a lot to get him so I don’t think declining his option and just letting him walk is the best option.
  11. Yes but you can also say if they let him go and he has an All-Star year with another team, why didn’t they pickup his option? Relievers are a crapshoot.
  12. This is the best option. They gave up quite a bit for him so if they can’t find a taker, we have him for at least one more year and hopefully he turns it around.

    They should have tried trading for Inglesias and a RF instead. Probably a better strategy.

    I somewhat disagree. There were countless times in crucial situations when they had RISP and all they could do was either strikeout, ground out, or hit into a GIDP. If you notice, most of the the teams on that list have advanced or are still alive in the playoffs and it’s because they can drive in runs in crucial situations by hitting for extra base hits, for homeruns or drive the ball to the outfield for a sac fly.

    Agreed, I don’t know how they would be able to accomplish that when they can’t be an everyday starter at another position. One or two may have to be moved.

    Relievers are a crapshoot. One year they can really good and the next year they can be bad or they can be really good the 1st half of the season and bad for the 2nd half of the season. Heuer is a good example of this. He wasn’t pitching all that great with the Sox and than all of a sudden he was pitching great with the Cubs. What changed? Was it a change of scenery? Was it a change in pitching philosophy or mechanics? With Kimbrel, I think it had a lot to do with how they were using him. It just didn’t work out this year.

    I think it’s more likely he’s in his office right now staring out the window wondering what happened in the 2nd half of the season and in the postseason. Lol
