    She represents Puig too. Pretty sure she is yet to get a contract for her players because Puig’s contract with ATL got nixed when he tested positive for COVID.

    Old: Mega Hendriks Speculation Thread

    He has a 500k buyout for 2022. Total commitment would be this years salary plus 500k.

    If the convert on Hendriks, there is a lot of talk they are about tapped financially but also not done with the offseason. Maybe they ultimately go cheaper on the SP on the FA front, but definitely trade rumors swirling.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    Anyone saying Warp Speed was a disaster has so much bias they can't see two feet in front of their face. All year people said it was crazy to think we would have a vaccine in 2021 let alone multiple in 2020 as soon as the media declared Biden the winner.

    2021 Plan for Kopech and Crochet

    To me it's really straight forward how to handle both of these guys. Health permitting, this is what I would do. Kopech - Hasn't pitched (outside of Spring Training) in 2.5 years when the season starts. If the season starts on time, start him in the minors, make him prove he can throw strikes. You likely gain a service year by doing what makes sense given his injury, development and the current roster construction (Sox will add another starter). Crochet - Sox seem set on him making him a starter. Start him in Winston Salem as a starter. Let him pitch to around 100 innings as a starter in the minors. Call him up for the stretch run to be a bullpen stud. This way, you allow a guy who has never built up a significant starter workload to get a sniff of the routine. You max his service time. You get high leverage use out of him. You protect his arm putting him on a nice development path. The Sale path for Crochet may make sense but...Sale is an exception to the rule. Not the rule. Sale is a freak. Sale averaged almost 100 innings his last two years at FGCU as their Friday starter. Crochet has 12 starts in his collegiate career. He has thrown less than 140 innings in NCAA/pro ball. Also, just want to get ahead of this. Yes, I mentioned service time. Yes, I want to win. No, I don't get anything out of Reinsdorf saving money. This is a business. The decision makers operate within the constraints and rules of the CBA so my thinking will encompass these rules.

    Extensions You’d Like to See

    Sox offered Cease an extension before he pitched in the MLB. Well the Sox extended both Eloy and Robert when they had a potential for 7 years of control already.

    Teams that have cost controlled, above league average players under control at C, 1B (x2), 2B, SS, 3B, LF & CF should have the capacity to have luxuries most teams wouldn't. That situation makes it so setting the market on the top reliever and acquiring a quality back up should not be outside of the realm of the possibility. To be clear, I am not saying the Sox should bring another starter to back up Grandal. I am saying they should have someone better than Collins/Zavala/Mercedes. There is a lot of room between the two.

    Maybe so, but the Sox GM basically said it wasn’t a need. If Grandal went down for some reason the catching situation would go from one of the best in baseball to the worst.

    Hahn made some strange comments either in the end of year presser or when La Russa was announced. Basically saying they were content with Collins/Zavala/Mercedes. It was a strong presser and that was the one thing I couldn’t make sense of. That said, I do think the Sox are more likely to get a veteran backstop than he implied that day.

    What a terrible comparison. They are players who wore the same uniform as closers 15-20 years apart I guess.

    I want Hendriks more than I have ever wanted a reliever.

    They gave Robertson 4 years and he wasn't as good as Hendriks is.

    Tony LaRussa to plead guilty to lesser charge

    Probably not fair to grill Hahn on this. He's been more adversely affected than anyone. He didn't want La Russa and was denied a search for manager.

    Michael Brantley Thread

    I forget where I said it but I said I think people are crazy for expecting Brantley to be a full time DH here. I still think that's unlikely. If we saw Eloy go to DH though...
