    Dallas Keuchel time is now.

    Dallas Keuchel time is now.

    Signing Dallas Kuechel would be a terrible move for the Sox. He’s already 30+ and wants a 4+ year deal. I know that he had the highest groundball rate (53.7) and the lowest flyball rate (24.4), two things that would play great in GRF but giving pitcher at his age, the kind of deal he’s looking for wouldn’t make a lot of sense. Also the Sox would have to lose their second rounder IIRC if they sign him.

    Is anyone worried about Eloy’s conditioning?

    Who is your top 2019-20 free agent target

    I don’t think the catcher of the future is in the organization currently

    Who is your top 2019-20 free agent target

    Gerrit Cole is my number one hope for next winter. Could you imagine a staff of Cole, Rodon, Kopech, Lopez and Cease. I think Cole is a number one starter, that you can count on for about 7 innings every time he gets the call. He’s a strike guy, which always plays and he can share the secrets of the Astros pitching development machine.

    Personal opinions on Sox rebuild pieces.

    With that mind set, just stop drafting guys.

    Personal opinions on Sox rebuild pieces.

    Since the Sox started this rebuild they have acquired some guys with star potential: Moncada, Jimenez, Kopech, Cease and Robert... but the farm is thin on guys with high ceilings. Lots of guys in the farm project to be relivers or utility players. Always take the best player on the board but the Sox amateur scouting staff has to start prioritizing high school players in the draft more. I understood prioritizing college players in terms of building an organizational foundation but when you solely target college guys at the top of the draft, you run the risk of having an older farm. Dane Dunning could very be 25+ by the time he reaches the majors. High school players are younger obviously and spend more time in your system learning your way of doing things. This was a rant

    Tax Refunds

    Not tax return related but I’m building a website and recently bought a LLC. After talking to some other filmmakers/artist and listening to some podcast, I realized that I can declare myself as self employed. I started using Quickbooks and it’s been incredible. If you’re self employed, I recommend it.

    PECOTA: 70-92

    I’m in total agreement with you in regards to the offense being more consistent with the arrival of Eloy and guys like Moncada and Anderson taking the next steps in their development. They also turned the bullpen into a major strength that shorten games for the young staff but I think they also improved the defense of the team with Alonso and Jay. If the team stays as it is, I’m thinking 75-77 wins which would be huge. If they land a Harper or Machado, I think they can play meaning games late in the regular season at the least .500 ball.

    Frank Robinson RIP

    Growing up black in a family that loves baseball, my grandfathers and my uncles would always tell me stories about Frank Robinson and how big a deal he was as a player and a manager. I called my grandfather today and told him and he couldnt believe it.
