  1. One should take a look at Ichiro stats. The man hit 117 homers in 19 seasons and he will be a hall of famer. I'm not comparing them as hitters but in our lineup a guy who can get on base and field and run the bases is exactly what we need imo.

    Joc Pederson thoughts

    How about we stop about the Joc Pederson talk and his 233 career batting average and his 1 year of contract control? Ridiculous

    Joc Pederson thoughts

    let me be the first to explain it. 5 years of Aaron Bummer and 2 years of Nomar Mazara > 1 year of Joc Pederson and his 233 career Batting average. Also a bird in the hand meaning if the Betts trade doesn't happen( and its not finalized yet) Pederson probably wouldn't be available and we would be stuck with Adam Engle- Luery Garcia RF.

    Castellanos to Reds , rumored 4/64M

    This trading Vaughn talk by some people here is fucking ridiculous. Why would we want to trade a guy who some experts think is one of the best college hitters they have ever seen. Insane talk imo. I wouldn't trade Vaughn for Senzel straight up. He is our first baseman of the future and we should be excited about that as Sox fans.

    Castellanos to Reds , rumored 4/64M

    if one wanted to look at Stats Castellanos averaged 84 RBI's the last 4 year in 615 AB per season. Mazarra averaged 77 RBI's per season in 497 AB. if you combine the cost controlled salary the next 2 years if we want him along with his left handed bat which imo we desperately need I think NM is a better option. The rest of the stats the last 4 years are fairly similar between the 2 players. Castellanos plays in a harder hitters park for sure but if you look at per AB Nomar's are a little better. Vaugn and Madrigal will most likely be here this year and next so unless the right handed hitter is Mookie Betts the Lefty hitter with more upside and similar stats is the way better option.

    Take a look at Castanellos stats compared to Mazara and there is not much difference the last 4 years. Granted he did play in a harder hitters park than Mazara so that has to be accounted for. I will take the Mazara upside for 1 year with a left handed bat in the lineup ( which is huge for us with all the righties we have now and coming up) over paying Castanellos. It's a no brainer imo.

    Hire AJ Hinch to replace Ricky?

    Why does everyone think Ricky isn't a legitimate manager? When you trot out the players we have trotted out the last couple years no one could have managed that team to be successful. And I won't even bring up the horrible pitchers. I don't know if he is good or bad but it's hard to tell when your dealt with the hand he has been dealt. We will find out this year for sure I guess
  8. I believe Contreras pitched 8.1 innings in game 1. 2/3rds of a inning from 5 complete games in a row

    Grinder rule number 57, .
  10. I’d love Brock Holt but he might be too expensive. Not sure how is overall glove skills are but he can play 3 infield positions plus some outfield. Plus a great mentor for Madrigal imo.

    Sox acquire Nomar Mazara for Steele Walker

    You act like all teams are smart. Why did we trade Tatis? Bad trades happen all the time. Not saying this trade will be good or bad as only time will tell. And not to be a smart ass but Steele who? We have a ton of corner outfielders in the minors and the hope is one of them takes the next step or Mazara does. Either way it was a great gamble on upside. If not we just sign Mookie Betts and the rest is history. I can dream

    Sox acquire Nomar Mazara for Steele Walker

    I absolutely love the Mazara trade. The upside could be big. The downside is probably 20 homers and 80 Rbi’s In a protected line up. Plus from what I heard about E.E being great with young players and Dominican guys Mazara has a chance to be a lot better. I’m pumped for him and the Sox.
  13. Madrigal has to be a major pain he ass for pitchers. If is walk rate isn't that high nor is his strikeout rate I bet he fouls a boatload of pitches off. A pitchers worst nightmare.

    Edwin Encarnacion

    Your having doubts about Vaughn after reading a article? All that article says is he is the best college hitter some have ever seen but he is a right handed hitting first baseman. I’ll take the former.

    Remaining Wish List

    Colome is not a closer on a competitive team imo. 7th-8th inning guy but not a closer. It’s a lot easier to close games when your 20 games out of first and out of the playoffs. He doesn’t miss enough bats with his fastball for my taste but oh well he looks to be the guy for now.
