    Mets could shop McNeil, Sox could have interest

    You could be right, but also having a hole again at 2nd base is also a problem. I think the FO has a good feeling of where Crochet fits in to the present pitching staff assuming Kimbrel is gone somewhere. So the risk of trading Crochet should be weighed against the benefit of adding McNeil. But also some have said just Crochet may not be enough.

    But if SP is really their goal, Mets may find a better partner unless Crochet is the piece.

    Rosenthal fired for criticism of Manfred

    But the egos often win out

    Rodon could be their 4/5 with some salary relief.

    But supposedly they want SP( 4/5 starter) in return.

    Supposedly looking for a 4/5 since they seem set 1-3. So maybe Crochet to start sounds good.

    Carlos Rodon and a 6-man Sox rotation?

    I am not saying Tampa reduced their starters. What the chart shows is that pitchers in innings 4-5-6 give up more runs than in 7 and 8 understanding 9 is not comparable. So I think the trend could be to pull starters quicker then normally.

    Statistically, If you look at AL scoring, runs scored from high to low are 6-5-4-3-1-7-8-2-9 innings. Ninth is obviously lowest since some % of games only has one team batting in 9th. So it makes sense that in the 6th, pitchers may be approaching their max which is why that inning is the worst. But as we see more data in the hands of stat geeks, the Tampa model may become more prevalent since teams may look to prevent more 3-4-5 inning scoring which would normally be charged to a starter.

    You have $30m to complete the roster...

    Actually, In 1981 when the players went on strike, the owners had a $100,000 per game insurance policy. But this is a lockout which to your point would be under the owners control. But there are such policies called business interruption insurance but they may not be applicable with a lockout. "The unique risk for sports today is with cancelations. Most every business insurance policy includes a provision for business interruption. And by the sound of it, business interruption insurance should kick in if the business is, well, interrupted." https://www.insurancequotes.com/business/sports-insurance-covid https://www.insurancequotes.com/business/sports-insurance-covid

    I haven't seen it reported anywhere, but I wonder if MLB owners have a L'loyds of London type policy to protect them against lost revenue?

    The Second Base Options (as it stands)

    But Madrigal was out and would not have been back so Danny Mendick was the 2nd baseman for 2nd half. I think Hernandez should have been a step up both offensively and defensively over Mendick.

    The Second Base Options (as it stands)

    Since Hahn felt the Sox needed an upgrade at the deadline, then he will have to find a replacement this winter. Jose Iglesias is a possibility that is still not signed. Sounds like he is looking for $7-8 MIl for 2 years. I am sure there are other similar names if the Sox want to spend the bigger money on RF/SP.

    2022 Offseason Plan Thread

    Lot of Boston rumors that Schwarber would go back to Boston. I don't know if maybe he is holding out w hope of being a DH in NL and increase his negotiation ability.

    I think so many guys are coming back from Tommy John, that teams will take a chance on them. Paxton got 8+ w Seattle last year and 10 w Boston this year after TJ. Paxton was 12-5, 11-6 and 15-16 in 2017-2019. He was hurt in spring 2020 and finally had TJ surgery. Rodon was hurt both 2019 and 2020 and bounced back this season. Looking at what Paxton got , I could see the Sox taking Rodon back at 2 years and $25-28 with a 1-2 year club option.
