    Offseason 2019-2020 MLB Catch All Thread

    This trade makes no sense for the Rays unless they really don’t like Liberatore.
  2. yah, but it also shows how far the Sox have come in such a short amount of time when we now have a 40 man roster that is is at least 90% occupied by players that have real value to the organization. Always sucks to lose someone, but it is just another sign that some real progress has been made. I do expect a rebuilding org to gobble Medeiros up, though.
  3. Covey is a little ways down the list, fellas.
  4. Zavala will very likely be the one DFA'd for Cishek. So I wouldn't get too worked up about that. And exposing Medeiros to the rule 5 draft wasn't an option in 2019. He was added to the 40 man in 2018.
  5. Exactly. He’s interesting enough, has options, throws left handed and has a pedigree that I wouldn’t be totally shocked if he gets claimed.

    Yah, I don't really give 2 fucks about the Cubs, so doesn't affect me much. Get it from a traditional Sox fan perspective tho.

    I would love to see the Twins trade Lewis + Graterol/Balazovic + Larnach for 2 years of Bryant. The Twins would really be doubling down on 2020 and 2021 - without much pitching - and their outlook for 2023 on would be pretty terrible.

    AJ Reed comes to mind. God was he just horrible in his short Sox stint.
  9. As I've said here many times, the Twins IF defense is horrific. Sano and Arraez were both in the bottom 10% as well. Won't be long before they move Polanco off SS.

    Sounds like he probably hasn't gotten a single offer that is actually close to $110M based on the recent reporting.
  11. He's going to miss at least half the season before he's throwing in games. So he may factor in late, but certainly not before the ASB.

    Mentioned this in the catchall, but this may be a better spot for it.. When are the Sox going to announce their non-roster ST invites and other milb deals? I know a few have sprinkled in - Detwiler, Delmonico, Cuthbert, Frare, Burr - but I expect there will be many more, especially guys from outside the org. Merkin mentioned in a tweet a couple weeks ago that that slew of NRI guys would be announced after the new year, but I haven't seen it.

    Don't get your hopes up. He has an option remaining, and despite all Sox fans thinking he's terrible (because he has been) and just wanting to cut bait, he is actually somewhat useful depth to have in AAA. So I highly doubt he's going anywhere, but I share your thoughts that I hope he doesn't throw a pitch in the big leauges for the Sox in 2020.

    No word that I have seen on if Guerrero has cleared or not. My guess is Zavala and Medeiros will go for EE and Cishek. Sounds like EE is taking his physical today, so we should hear about 1 of them today. Purely my opinion, but I think you could group the back end of the 40 man as follows: High risk of not making it to ST on the 40 man: Zavala (2 options) and Medeiros (2 options) Next grouping of guy's that can't feel too safe, likely in order: Fulmer (0 options), Foster, (3 options), Ruiz (1 option) Covey (1 option) Doubt they're going anywhere right now: Engel (1 option), Basabe (1 option), Mercedes (3 options), Rutherford (3 options) Cordero (0 options) I personally think Sox will hang onto Fulmer, give him last pen spot out of ST, and DFA him shortly thereafter when he's much more likely to clear and stay in the org than if he was DFA'd between now and OD. Foster is a tough one as he was a surprise add to the 40 man for me personally. I am not attached to him at all, but clearly Sox saw enough to protect him, so I would assume he survives the offseason.
  17. Possible, but I think Ruiz is pretty safe. He is a big arm and an option remaining. I also don't see the Sox DFAing Covey right now. Fulmer I guess I could see, but I actually think he'll get on last chance on the OD roster.
  18. Which is undoubtedly the correct way to handle this situation. He has plenty of options. He'll get his chances in MLB in 2020, and things open up a bit in 2021 if he deserves further chances.
  19. Guessing Zavala or Medeiros gets the DFA. The other likely to go for Cishek.
  20. For sure. Hard not to feel for the kid.
  21. May be a little easier for him to clear waiver in season than just before too.
  22. I wouldn't be surprised at all if they decide to give him one last shot if he has a decent ST.

    Castellanos to Reds , rumored 4/64M

    Fair. I mean, I wouldn't complain if the Sox got him on like a 1/$20M deal. I just doubt it happens. I would complain if they committed to more than 1 year of him.
  24. He's out of options. He is in the pen, or in another org come OD.

    Castellanos to Reds , rumored 4/64M

    I suppose. He could also regress back to the ~110 wRC+ player he always was, and coupled with his dogshit defense, put himself in a pretty terrible situation moving forward. I don't think Castellanos is taking a 1 year deal unless that is his only option.
