  1. Wow. They are not doing a good job of hiding it, are they? If you don't really think that your behavior is wrong, I guess you don't see how other people would. I hope they ban half the front office. Something like this can't go on without EVERYONE in the organization knowing about it.

    Cole or Strasburg?

    It would HAVE to be Tucker and Whitley for Giolito. Anything less than that would be cray cray. Reddick is close to worthless with his contract.
  3. If you know it's coming, yeah. We saw all year with Giolito, a high change can be very effective.
  4. It's not just 2017. They were 13 games better at home this year than they were on the road. I doubt they won the World Series and then said, "Okay, that's enough. We're going to stop stealing signs now." I hope MLB throws the book at them.

    A Realistic Offseason

    I like Engel’s D, but he can’t throw and a lot of balls fall in front of him. Leury is just okay out there. From what I have seen, Robert will be better. But, yeah, Yolmer is an elite defender at second. Has been for a while. Moving him to third was understandable, but destroyed his value.

    Trade Candidates: Hitters

    I put it in another thread, but Pirates’ Gregory Polanco.

    How do you know that? He has played zero OF in his life. Maybe he'd be good like Whit Merrifield. Maybe he'd be mediocre. I just have a hard time believing that jerking around the team's best player is the solution to all of our problems.

    Potential Deals with Boston

    Anything is possible, but why would the Sox give up assets for JD Martinez when Nick Castellanos is available for nothing but money. Not even draft picks? Seems unlikely.

    I am amazed at the amount of discussion over Kiley mentioning “buzz” that the Sox are going to be active in veterans on short deals for low guarantees. That’s not even a source. And it’s what they did last year, so... yeah. He didn’t rule them out going for a big piece. Seems pretty close to a nothing burger to me.

    I would bet the under on that happening, but it would be nice.

    Cole or Strasburg?

    I think most of that is on Bauer. We saw what kind of a teammate he is when he chucked that ball over the centerfield wall.

    Josh Osich claimed by boston

    Agree to disagree. Frare was horrific this past year. Don’t know what happened to him, but it was rough. Point is, the Sox 40 man had a lot of really bad players on it. Probably farther from contending than they think.

    Josh Osich claimed by boston

    Sox 40 man at 32, I could imagine them getting it to 25 if they non-tender Yolmer, outright Frare, Ruiz, Vieira, Meideros, Palka, and Zavala. Maybe they are planning on adding 10 guys in the Rule 5 draft.

    Why? Moncada hasn’t played outfield in his life. Not even in Cuba. Who knows if he could play right, let alone be lethal out there?

    A Realistic Offseason

    After reading a post on MLB Trade Rumors, I have decided that I am cool with anyone the Sox get in right except long time rumored KW favorite JBJ. Boston should non-tender him and if the Sox are dumb enough to pick up that salary, it will ruin my off season.
