    What about Collins?

    That looks ideal. But I was looking at the wear and tear of catching. Grandal breaks down most years so I think if he drops down from 130 to say 100 and is the DH for 30-40 that might be ideal for him and the team.

    Grandal needs to but is there any way he is willing to give up the high(130ish ) number of games he catches. Maybe moving to an AL team and DH would placate his desire to play so many games for a catcher.

    Zack Wheeler Thread

    I think $25 per year is really high for him. I think $20 will be the max but some team may get desperate

    But NL vs AL. Got to pay an NL pitcher more since they also bat.............................................

    I think that would get him. Corbin got $23 and Eovaldi got $17. I think Wheeler at $20 is a good number.

    What about Collins?

    Understood. But a Grandal/McCann catching duo leaves very little catching opportunities for Collins.

    I follow your thinking. I also think Grandal is farther down the FO wish list than many posters seem to think.

    So if they sign Grandal, you would see them moving McCann?

    What about Collins?

    As the backup or the 3rd catcher?

    McCann 's 2nd half numbers other than HR/RBI dropped during the 2nd half. The 1st half as you say may very well be a fluke. But Grandal 's 2nd half numbers drop almost every year he has played. In his case, I think he plays too many games (130ish) and he wears out. The AL affords him the chance to play less and DH on the days he doesn't catch. But I thought I saw something that he insists on catching a lot of games.
  11. I agree. He has said numerous times he really likes Boston and Cora. But he wants to be "the FA" next year. I think the package starts w Cease+ since they have young IB and 2B options. Boston always seems to need pitching because they struggle to develop it.

    White Sox Offseason Rumors

    I think they will end up w a budget of $125-120 Mil. That to me( 50% increase) will be middle-ground.
  13. FYI--- Speier is a real stat geek but he is very much in the know. Just to add, the timing also had some impact. This was before Pedroia's injury problems. So Moncada was pretty much blocked, hence the move to 3rd. Behind Moncada in the minors was Devers who also played 3rd. So Boston felt they had a future 3rd baseman so they could trade Moncada but would not include both. In 2016, Speier ranked their prospects in order Benintendi, Moncada, Devers and Kopech Here are profiles of the top-10 Red Sox prospects: Andrew Benintendi, OF. 2016 Level: High A Salem, Double A Portland, big leagues. ... Yoan Moncada, 2B/3B. ... Rafael Devers, 3B. ... Michael Kopech, RHP. ... Jason Groome, LHP. ... Sam Travis, 1B. ... Mauricio Dubon, SS/UT. ... Luis Alexander Basabe, OF.

    I don't think we really know "what he is" at age 24 with 86 MLB at bats.

    Grandal - Early Off-Season Speculation

    But that is a real longshot. Hahn has to get the best RF that the budget will allow. If Betts becomes a FA and JR is willing to go around $35 Mil after what they already add in FA adds this season, you can always trade whoever you sign this year.
