    The Blake Snell Thread

    First and foremost, I try to sign Bauer. If you can't, I just sign two guys out of the Quintana/Happ/Paxton/Richards/Kluber/Archer group. Maybe try to give Rodon a cheap deal as 7th starter/bullpen help insurance if the bridge isn't burned. I'd be open to trades, but not one that is going to require moving top end guys - which Snell would.

    I'd much rather just sign pitching when all it costs is money.

    Trevor Bauer Thread

    Yes? He was (and still is) literally the perfect match for the Sox.

    James McCann looking at a 4 year deal (perhaps Mets)

    It wasn't a minor league deal, but point remains.

    Wow. Like 4/$32-35M. Would be shocked to see higher AAV than that on a 4 year deal.

    Offseason Targets

    Yep. I think it makes a ton of sense assuming Springer isn't happening. Even with Springer, I'd still try to bring in Joc or Dahl. Its not like either is going to be expensive.

    Offseason Targets

    To me, depending on what the roster size is going to be for 2021, Dahl is a guy you bring in along with another OF. You definitely cannot count on him to play 125+ games in RF. He's an option, not the solution. Bring in both Joc and Dahl. If everyone is healthy, Eloy can spend a little more time at DH and it also gives the Sox a little safety blanket on Vaughn, as well as the inury prone Eloy and Robert. Another combo that I kind of like is Brantley + Dahl. Brantley DHs to start the year, Dahl in RF. Again, helps with injury concerns as a Eloy/Robert/Dahl OF is going to spend some time on the IL, and Brantley can fill in the corners with Engel/Leury as needed.

    Oh and Avi still isn't a fit for this team. He literally checks none of the boxes.

    Offseason Targets

    Starling Marte is a guy who would have made a ton of sense to acquire last deadline. Doubt Miami moves him a couple months after trading for him, though. My list, as you can probably see, is definitely tiered in terms of handedness and defensive ability. Sans Springer, who is obviously the best player of the group by a wide margin, the rest fall in line mostly in terms of how they play defense. Except for maybe Joc, but he'd be a straight platoon in RF and his defensive is fine.

    Offseason Targets

    Of the FA's I think this is the obvious tiers for RF (in terms of fit for the Sox, specifically), IMO: Tier 1: Springer Tier 2 (in order): Joc Pederson, David Dahl Tier 3 (in order): Brantley (docked for not rot really being a RF), Jackie Bradley Jr, Adam Eaton (docked for being an asshat and a likely torched bridge, despite a pretty good fit) Tier 4 (in order): Josh Reddick, Nick Markasis, Robbie Grossman, Jurickson Profar (not really a RF, but I am sure he'd be better than at least half the guys before him on this list)

    Offseason Targets

    Sure it’s been mentioned but Dahl would be a nice fallback option.

    Rodon and Mazara Non-Tendered

    One of these does not belong.
  13. ChiSox59

    Offseason Targets

    The fact that he's skeptical/negative about everything?

    Nontender deadline almost here

    Really interested to see some of the names that get non-tendered across the league today.
