  1. When is the last time this has happened in MLB? Honest question. It’s been awhile.

    Predict the Market: FA Contracts

    There is zero percent chance that Boston would trade Betts, one of the very best players in the game - even if only for a year - for a guy that is going to be nontendered and a guy that has 2 years of control but will miss the majority of 1 season with TJS. To suggest otherwise is just plain silly.

    Cmon man. Stop with this spamming nonsense.

    He can have the illustrious distinction for 1 season!

    His optimism knows no bounds! A true company man!

    A Realistic Offseason

    Especially when, in today's market, there should be plenty of solid SP options available on 1 year deals. Just make the first SP add an impact one. The one situation where I could get behind the logic on two SP on multiyear deals is Wheeler + Ryu. And that is if Ryu could actually be attained a 2 year deal in the $30-35M range a FG projected.

    I don't think Pederson would cost much, and yes I would perfer him to Castellanos who I hate as a fit unless the Sox go balls to the walls. But I'd love to hear your extensive list of options.

    A Realistic Offseason

    Unless you think the Sox plan to flirt with the luxury tax on 2022-2025, there is zero percent chance the OD payroll is north of $150M. To do what you’re proposing in one offseason is just simply not feasible.

    Yah, its less than ideal. But most lefties don't hit lefties well, and Leury can play some RF against lefties. He hits lefties very well.

    Also only for 1 season, whereas you're likely committing to at least 4 years with Castellanos. So now you either have a poor OF defense for the next 4 years, or you have an expensive DH with a slightly over league average bat.

    A Realistic Offseason

    Yah, its pretty simple. One multi-year SP, one backend guy on 1 year deal. Which is why the one multi-year SP needs to be Wheeler or Ryu and not Keuchel or Hamels. Sox don't need to spend the money necessary to sign 2 SP to longer term deals. Allocate elsewhere.

    Very predictable content.

    Abreu Accepts 1 YR Qualifying Offer

    Meh. If the Sox are going to give him a 3/$45M type deal, it would already be signed and he would have never become a FA. The QO was to extract leverage. There is no point in the Sox punting said leverage now. But I understand most Sox fans think the org is run by complete imbeciles so I guess I get where you're coming from.

    Abreu Accepts 1 YR Qualifying Offer

    There was really no point in the Sox offering Jose QO for them to just rip it up and sign him to a 3/$45M deal as soon as he accepted it. I would assume the 2 or 3 year extensions the Sox are interested in are much more team friendly.

    Abreu Accepts 1 YR Qualifying Offer

    Now that the $17.8M contract is locked in, what dollar amount do you guys feel like it makes sense FROM THE SOX PERSPECTIVE to extend him to a 2 or 3 year deal. My cut offs would be: 3 years $33M (effectively a 2 year $15M extension on top of QO) 2 years $26M (effectively a 1 year $8M extension on top of QO) Anything more than that, and sorry Jose....1 year deal it is.
