    Not at this rate. Some will cry owner's are being cheap, but the reality is that it would be bad business to sacrifice a year in what is likely Robert's prime for a few meaningless at bats in the lost 2019 season. Robert will be up spring 2020, just enjoy the ride.

    Colome drawing "ample" trade interest

    Yikes that is a really high asking price. Lux is not getting moved, he's a top 20 prospect in the game right now. May is not far behind that either. Gray is a guy they could potentially deal, who should appear as a backend top 100 prospect on updated lists.

    Sox will likely inquire about a potential extension in the offseason, and if Robert's camp isn't interested then the Sox say screw it and secure seven years of control. I'm not worried about what happens after seven more years at this stage, just secure the extra year.

    To Sell or Not to Sell?

    By free up cash, I mean we could potentially allocate the $15 million or so an Abreu extension might cost to other player(s). I love what Abreu has brought to the organization, but I do not love the idea of paying retail to an aging slugger. The fanbase needs to be prepared for the front office to not be emotional about Abreu and to go in a different direction. His production has declined, and I wouldn't give him more than a one year deal at this stage.

    Absolutely not. The Sox are not going to sniff the playoffs in 2019, why would they burn a season of contractual control? Robert will be up with the mlb club mid-late April 2020.

    I do not see how McCann can be dealt. Who is going to catch in 2020? McCann has to stay.

    Colome drawing "ample" trade interest

    If I am the Dodgers, I would not be all that keen on trading May. He's their best pitching prospect and is close to MLB ready.

    To Sell or Not to Sell?

    The Sox are not a good team in 2019, and every move should be done with a focus on 2021 contention at this point. 2020 is still unlikely to be a realistic contention season, so guys like Colome/Bummer should be sold to the highest bidder. I even question whether it's worth it to extend Abreu, or should they free up that cash for other talent?

    Not true at all, deal Colome and Bummer to the highest bidder and move on. I can guarantee you the Sox regret not dealing Fry last season. You aren't getting a king's ransom for two non elite relievers, but you could get a return that makes you better.

    Colome drawing "ample" trade interest

    Feels light for the Sox, but I'm not going to overvalue our guys too much. I dig Gray, but if Bummer is going in the deal as well I'd like May as a centerpiece. Gray is certainly a rising prospect himself though that I am interested in. Thomas has some pop, but the hit tool seems fringy at best

    2019 Trade Deadline Predictions

    If The Braves were going to trade Waters, it would be part of a package for a mid rotation or better starting pitcher, not a pen arm like Bummer. Expectations are way out of whack right now I feel

    2019 Trade Deadline Predictions

    Highly doubt either the Braves or Cardinals would do that

    2019 Trade Deadline Predictions

    No way the Rays deal Jesus Sanchez for Aaron Bummer. I think we need to reconsider the trade value of Colome and Bummer big time. There is value between them, but not a top 50 guy.

    Colome drawing "ample" trade interest

    Really depends on the deal as a whole, team needs, money and the prospect(s) involved. Theoretically the Sox should receive a quality return in order to consider dealing a package of Colome/Bummer. My guess on a potential return would be a top 50 - 125 overall prospect type as the centerpiece that is relatively close to MLB ready, along with one or two second tier prospect(s)?

    This seems to echo exactly what I have been suggesting, a one to two year deal possibly with a club option for another season? I really think the fans calling for a three or four year extension are going to be surprised when the Sox won't go more than short term.
