    Trade Whispers - Starting Pitchers

    I'd be pretty surprised if Molina got anywhere near that much money at his age.

    Wainwright could be a really solid veteran addition to the backend of the rotation. A John Lackey "light" so to speak that would not require more than a one year deal. If he falters, you can go with Kopech/Stiever/etc.

    I do not know if it really matters. Once players sign they are fully aware they can be traded at any time, it is just business. He still gets his money.

    I also do not like shipping off such a promising prep arm so early in his development. He certainly has the pedigree to become a top 100 prospect by end of this season if he performs. I'd be pretty surprised if he were dealt unless we were receiving a #2 in return.

    I like Burnes, but is he a guy we can trust to stay healthy? I am not so sure he is the kind of pitcher I would give up a haul for.

    Heard Jared Kelley's name come up. I'm sure many clubs would be very interested in him. I am fine with giving up Madrigal/Heuer/plus in a package, but trading our most advanced young pitching prospect is not ideal at this stage. Sox need to clear 40 man roster spots, so I would focus on subtracting from there before dipping into top 10 prospects on the farm.

    Sox have interest in Brad Hand

    The smartest thing the organization can do would be to let Crochet develop as a SP in the minor leagues. They can always call him up later in the season to reinforce the bullpen.

    Bingo. Hand is likely to get less than most think. Under normal circumstances his 1/$10 million contract would be picked up by some club looking for bullpen help.

    Trevor Bauer Thread

    I would be leery about signing such an outspoken player to a long term deal No way he's getting $36 million per over 5-6 years

    Blake Snell and Yu Darvish traded to San Diego

    The difference between the Sox and Padres is that the middle tier of their farm is vastly superior to ours. Beyond our top 10 it quickly tails off.

    Joe Musgrove Thread

    I like Musgrove, but what is the cost assuming their are quite a few suitors? I think clubs would like to see how FA plays out before dealing from their farm.

    Badler: Sox expected to sign Yoelki Cespedes

    Did Madrigal die?

    Badler: Sox expected to sign Yoelki Cespedes

    If most clubs are out of international pool money, Colas might have to wait until 2022 in order to sign. Sox could absolutely still be in the mix for him then.

    Real Hendriks talk Who are the other potential suitors for him? If the rumored deal is 3/$39 million, I cannot see that many teams being willing to spend big on a closer in this market

    Sox could always sign a guy like Shin Soo Choo on the cheap to DH and then dump him once Vaughn proves ready
