    Roster Moves

    I am kind of shocked Zavala has kept a roster spot this long.

    Steve Stone: more bullpen help is coming

    I think the Reds are going to compete and would want to keep Iglesias Kind of like when they signed Gordon Beckham at SoxFest after just recently dumping him in the season prior. If the Sox sign Puig it is because nobody in MLB finds value in Puig.

    Cuban Phenom defecting Oscar Colas

    I don't think you are wrong necessarily but Bmags isn't either. Sox biggest 16-17 year old signing was Adolfo in 2013/2014. Franklin Reyes, Amado Nunez & Guererro had some pretty decent bonuses but these guys were maybe top 30 prospects in their class and not even top 20. Nunez may have been top 20 but obviously publication rankings are guesswork just noting. When they have spent bigger in LatAm they have jumped on the older prospects when they can - as older prospects are far less common. Robert was basically their only "notable" signing for two classes and he was 19 (IIRC). Yolbert Sanchez was their big signing last year and he was 21. When you say the vast majority of their dollars are spent on 16 year old that's not true becuase Robert alone is probably more than half of their money spent down there during this century. Past that, you're probably right but isn't that the vast majority of the free agent pool. You both make valid points I just think bmags argument of the Sox being risk averse with players wrapping up puberty is a very fair argument.

    Would you extend Nick Madrigal? For how much?

    I think if he doubles his 3% K rate to 6% in the big leagues, keeps using the whole field to hit and plays great D he's going to be a great piece for the Sox for a long time.

    Offseason 2019-2020 MLB Catch All Thread

    Not sure why the Nats signed Castro on top of Cabrera and Kendrick. I wouldn't have mind the Sox picking up Cabrera. Especially for 2.5M. Probably would prefer the better opportunity and team he's familiar with in Washington if money is the same.

    Here’s A Laugh

    Don't want to disparage him because he seems like a decent guy but the people in the game that I have talked to over the years seem to agree that Morosi is an idiot. They don't talk the same way about Rosenthal, Heyman, Passan, etc. Morosi has been known to kind of throw stuff at the wall.

    Steve Stone: more bullpen help is coming

    Fake in that they don't have inside info? Perhaps. They do seem to have a grip on general baseball intelligence and if they're making shit up at least it is thought provoking. I don't love the burner account that's developed on Twitter but this account in particular doesn't bother me. Or with the Astros and JDM a few years back.

    Who were you hoping for in that draft? I just figured it'd be either Bohm/Madrigal - whoever Phili didn't take at #3. Any thoughts on why Madrigal is such a poor base stealer despite such strong speed and instincts?
  9. To me, Cease and Kopech have the widest range of outcomes. If both guys perform perform better than they are projected the Sox are going to be good.

    Will Harris to Nats

    And mine doesn't, since I don't have to explain myself. Thanks

    Will Harris to Nats

    Interesting, thanks. I am not of the belief that this person doesn't have some sort of inside info. )

    Will Harris to Nats

    George Ofman also tweeted those two guys this afternoon. I was thinking the Sox might be balk at 2 years. Good for Harris sweating it out and getting the money but I want no part of that.

    ****Next Up. (Jan 2, 2020) RHRF and Relief Pitching

    I'd add Zobrist and Cameron Maybin to the right field possibilities but good, full list. On top of everything you spoke to above, I wonder if the Sox also add a left handed hitting infielder as well I think without a doubt they add a reliever. The infield need & RH side of the RF platoon need are less of a guarantee. A RF addition is probably a good bit more likely than the INF addition. -I've mentioned Brad Miller much more than any fan should but I think he's cheap, has upside and a great fit. -Neil Walker would probably cost $1-1.5M and he hit decent when he wasn't in Miami's park. That's cutable if Madrigal is playing well. -Scooter Gennett was an All Star and has an 850 OPS over a full season with with his home park playing very similar to ours in 2018. -Brock Holt has averaged over 350 PAs a year for the Red Sox the last six years. Carrying a .342 OBP since 2014 coming off of .362 & .369 rates in 2018 and 2019 respectively. All while playing 4-6 positions a year with the majority at 2B where we'd need the most help. -Yolmer left on good terms and is likely going to come cheap. I would go another route but its an option.

    Clones maybe? Let me know if anyone gets to the bottom of this.
