    Cease could be the best P on Sox, per Lucas Giolito

    1) Ditch your breaking ball 2) Stay tall 3) Seriously, no breaking ball 4) I don't care if it has worked for your entire career so far, no more 5) Throw cutters 6) More cutters

    Trade Whispers - Starting Pitchers

    I come back from lunch and see that the Trade Whispers thread is hot thinking something cool was happening and the whole crew is in here doing a deep dive on post reactions.

    the Corbin Burnes thread **on ice***

    It’s like 4 pages long. Just read it.

    Old: Mega Hendriks Speculation Thread

    Didn't Jeff Passan confirm that NSC was legit (at least regarding the Dunning deal)? EDIT: Never mind. Didn't see the response before I sent the above

    Old: Mega Hendriks Speculation Thread

    Pass for me on Cruz. Dude was a monster last year but he's only getting older and at some point he'll not be able to catch up to the fastball like EE last year. I'd rather let him do that somewhere else.

    Baseball, am I right?

    Hot Stove Closer Talk

    And that's fine. I don't hate Colome as a player, my preference would just be to go with Hendriks.

    Hot Stove Closer Talk

    Colome's BB/9 was TRIPLE what Hendriks was last season (SSS I know) but even if you go back to 2019 it was ~1.2 BB/9 higher than Hendriks. And Colome's xFIP over the last 2 seasons suggests that he's due for substantial regression. The Steamer projection puts him at a ~4.5 ERA for next season and I know that they're not gospel but projecting a nearly 4 run jump in ERA has to be based on something.

    Hot Stove Closer Talk

    Who is "we"? Is it the pitching coach? Because he's new. Or the manager? Also new. The fans? Jerry's already shown that he doesn't care about that at all. Listen, I know that Colome put up good numbers the past couple seasons but I worry that they're a mirage. His peripherals aren't all that great.

    MLB Winter Meetings Thread

    If they can round out the offseason with Brantley, Hendriks, Hand, and Paxton/Quintana I'd be over the moon. That's one hell of a team.

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

    Oh. I guess that's settled then.

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

    I kinda thought I did that by using words like "hope" "pessimism" and "dream".

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

    There have been a few posts on here about industry people saying that the Sox are one of the only teams willing to spend this offseason and then they added Lynn ($8M) and Eaton ($7M) so what gives? My hope (with nothing but pessimism behind it) is that Jerry is going to tell Rick to go get Bauer no matter the cost and turn over a can't miss team to his pal in an attempt to let him go out on top. A guy can dream can't he?

    Sox acquire Lance Lynn for Dane Dunning and Avery Weems

    Understood. It could have been the case with Dane. But it is certainly going to be the case without him (unless Lynn is extended).
