    Corey Kluber to Yanks per Passan

    I agree Yanks had an inside track but Kluber obviously didn't just show up for a showcase for 25 teams. There were reports he looked good in his workouts before the showcase.

    Trade Whispers - Starting Pitchers

    Boston lost JBJ so even if they sign Springer they cannot afford to move Benintendi unless they are getting one of our's back.

    Trevor Bauer Thread

    Actually Boston has money to spend and they seem very quiet. I thought they would go for Springer but starting pitching is another big need that Bauer could fill.

    A/AA season start to be delayed

    I think there will still be issues as we have seen in the NHL. The AHL minor league hockey season has been cut in half. Columbus announced that they won't field a team and Providence has lost their arena to accomodate covid testing site. I think the MLB will also see issues w their minor league affiliates as February may be a bad month before we see vaccine relief.

    Old: Mega Hendriks Speculation Thread

    I would add that catcher is also the most vulnerable position as well. So you do not need a high quality back-up but you do need a quality one.

    Trevor Bauer Thread

    Not really. Bauer said neither he nor his agent were asked by Heyman for a comment. I didn't see where Heyman disputed that.

    Trevor Bauer Thread

    In fairness, a lot of the media rumors posted are BS. Combine ego driven athletes and media people creating stories to keep their name in the news and the circus develops.

    Blake Snell and Yu Darvish traded to San Diego

    I agree. JR said he wanted TL and Hahn and KW said here is the contract. But that is the owner's prerogative. It was the same thing in Boston. Bloom had a list as well but once ownership said Cora, Bloom was quick to agree.

    Blake Snell and Yu Darvish traded to San Diego

    Agree, Tampa will find at least one diamond in their return Hope all is better in Nashville after a horrible weekend.

    Old: Mega Hendriks Speculation Thread

    Had a lot of media issues in Boston. Not sure how many clubhouse issues he had. I think he could be a negative for a young team
  13. Huh??? This was a do or die playoff game. Dunning was the best option they had. It wasn't because the FO was trying to showcase him for a trade.
  14. Starting Dunning in their biggest game of the 2020 season might make it a very remote legitimate possibility as well.

    Also a young team so it is very reasonable to think that their core will improve over that record. Especially in a year with added games in the Central Division which should falter some.

    White Sox Hire Chris Johnson as AAA Hitting Coach

    I assume he was coaching somewhere w White Sox? Last listing I saw was was he signed a AAA contract w White Sox in 1/19 and released in 3/19.

    Official: McCann is a Met, $40/4 years

    It will be interesting to see how the Sox handle Grandal next year. A few trends to watch next year is that he usually is a better hitter in first half of the season (understandable being a catcher) and he also experiences a fairly big drop in production when not catching but playing IB and this year DH. Sox wanted to get his LH bat in lineup but maybe there will be better options next year.

    Sox sign Adam Eaton 1 year, $7m plus option

    No but we saw Boston not make the playoffs in 2019 and spent $225 Million. They then proceeded to cut payroll for 2020

    Sox sign Adam Eaton 1 year, $7m plus option

    I think most if not all owners care about winning. But they are all business owners who also care about making money. So the World Series opponents, the Dodgers and Rays spent $196 and $60 Million. The Yankees and Dodgers have spent boatloads but both have had long droughts between World Series titles. Boston also spent a ton, won a couple of World Series and then cut the budget. Every team has their approach as to how they spend and we have seen big spenders and "cheap" owners have mixed results.

    Sox sign Adam Eaton 1 year, $7m plus option

    Next year could be interesting regarding injuries in sports especially baseball and basketball and to a lesser degree hockey. I think some number of players will not be in as good of shape as they would have if they played a full season with training camp last year. Losing a complete minor league season could also be a factor for some players especially w pitching.

    Trevor Bauer v. Lance Lynn

    It is fun to compare Bauer and Lynn. Hell, we could also compare Eaton and Springer. Some portion of the fan base had dreams of adding Bauer and/or Springer but the FO didn't. So now we need some bullpen help and another starter (?) and start counting down to when pitchers and catchers report.

    Sox sign Adam Eaton 1 year, $7m plus option

    Sounds like that was Hahn's budget to meet for for next year.
  23. In 2019, Lynn had 246 SO in 208 innings. He walked 59 and gave up 21 HR. On a mediocre Ranger team, he put up solid numbers.
  24. Don't worry. Jerry is already in bed so nothing happens tonight.

    MLB Winter Meetings Thread

    He also has been streaky in his career so a 60 game sample can be really misleading.
