    Offseason 2019-2020 MLB Catch All Thread

    What a joke of a tweet. This should be expected. Sox should be in on them too.

    On to Plan B

    Could be the Rockies as other have said. Pirates also could fill SP and RF. Pirates are also “rebuilding” in a sense they have no chance at winning that division. Prospects make more sense going back to them.

    Offseason 2019-2020 MLB Catch All Thread

    It’s ironic how baseball’s “lovable losers” have evolved into a corporate machine that rubs a lot of their fans the wrong way. Bryant has every right to file that grievance. What the hell dis the Cubs think he was going to do?

    Adam Jones

    Adam Jones has no market because he is a shell of his former self. He's 34 year's old, can't play CF anymore, and has atrocious OBP. Sox need to do better.

    I'm not following this... is this connected to the Ricketts? I honestly have no clue on their business dealings. I think the major issue is that they are currently over the projected luxury tax and want to figure out a way to get under it.

    On to Plan B

    Going by past history, it's extremely unlikely, but maybe they will surprise us and figure out a way to get something done. It would be extremely moronic of them to not check in with his clients. It just seems like the classic guy the Sox covet because they've seen so much of him over the years. I think there is some potential, though like you said - very slim chance.

    I feel like Castellanos is their "guy" right now. It certainly feels like the Sox had specific players targeted and are 1/2 right now.

    Trade Market for Starting Pitchers...

    Seems like a steep price for the Sox, how good is Dunn exactly?

    Guess I'll put this here. Probably a good thing it's quiet.

    Favorite "Bounce Back"/Savvy Pitcher FA Candidates

    Tajuan Walker and Alex Wood are a top my list. Jimmy Nelson also grabs my attention, though I'm not fully aware of what exactly was wrong with him injury wise.

    On to Plan B

    They've been crying poor since last offseason. Rumors on twitter is that they are telling FA they need to clear payroll before adding anyone. Kind of crazy just how far they are going to say they can't afford anything. Supposedly they went over 100% on the projected budget for Wrigley renovations? Almost seems ridiculous.

    Dallas Keuchel (discussion)...come on down!

    I believe JR has made players in the past have a "tidy" appearance. I might be wrong, but didn't Kopech have to cut his hair? Same with Crede and Pierzynski? Abreu's beard was considered a little too much?

    Which he will immediately need to cut thanks the JR.

    Trade Market for Starting Pitchers...

    Agreed. I feel likes it’s getting more and more likely the Sox will not end up with any big name out of FA for SP.

    Would be amazing to see Anderson pimp a HR against him.
  16. CWSpalehoseCWS

    Sox in on Marcell Ozuna? I mean, maybe. Or not.

    Maybe Ozuna is pulling an Abreu with negotiations? Sox have no choice.

    Sox in on Marcell Ozuna? I mean, maybe. Or not.

    Agreed. Hector doubling down after last night makes me think it is going to happen.

    Trade Market for Starting Pitchers...

    I didn't say it wasn't. Go back and read my post, it was a total screw-up. I'm not sure what their line of thinking was. They didn't even bother to replace Thome's production. At least when they originally got Thome he was replacing Everett and what was thought of at the time a broken-down Thomas.

    And that's why I prefer Castellanos over him, bad defense be damned.

    Technically the Sox did not dump Thome. They traded him to the Dodgers to give him a shot at getting a ring. The Twins signed him in the offseason. Obviously the Sox never had any intention of bringing him back, and they totally screwed up on that end.

    Dave's also gone on record saying he won't scoop things out of fear of screwing it up for the Sox. If anything big is going on, I would be surprised if it came from him.

    On to Plan B

    I would much rather give up Lopez, Collins, and Basabe. I think the Sox will regret trading Stievers. He seems like one of those prospects that burst onto the scene. I wouldn't mind seeing what Madrigal + Lopez could fetch.

    Yeah, probably, but at least they both have experience there over the course of their careers.
