    Eloy officially got paid

    LOL at people somehow being upset by this. #1 it’s unlikely to be the deal hector is saying because that doesn’t compute with arb and any potential payout. So it’s likely more favorable than this #2 guys, it’s $12 million a year (likely less if #1 is true). Its not going to cripple anything if we miss. Eloy doesn’t have Yo’s swing and miss issues and is a much safer spec.
  2. I’ve been a massive Hahn supporter for awhile but man I am pissed off. This is like some have said the cherry on top, dear god.
  3. Max sprint speed on statcast does not equal play speed. Anyone that’s played the OF will tell you quickness and first step is far more important than straight line speed on most plays. Avi has extreme sprint speed for his size. Does he play a good RF? Absolutely not. Jay and Joc have both ranged from above average to at worst slightly below in defensive fWAR. After what we’ve trotted out there I straight up don’t get what the issue is.
  4. He's a very good defensive OF and is a great 4th OF/platoon bat. I don't understand how this is negative at all, worst case he splits time in CF and backs up the corners and provides a lefty bat. And if he has a bounceback year he's a really good stopgap and helps balance the lineup.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    They're not going to make their strongest offer right away. I'm guessing its high AAV shorter years like the poster above is speculating. Either way it's exciting, this is the first we've heard of any formal offers beyond the Harper Nats one.

    I think Guff is in on the posturing angle. He has immediately backed up almost anything Bruce has said and shot down any reports of the sox going big on Harp/MannyChado

    Machado: Update - Manny, do you officially like us?

    I’m sorry this Clarke tweet makes zero sense. Why would you require all final offers, take one, and then wait until early January to tell anyone? Guy likely got a scoop that the Yankees are in front. There is no chance it’s unfolding as described.

    Harper to Phillies 13yr/330 mil

    I think Floyd is a great comp. Good stuff and a former top prospect with early struggles. Also had a bit of the mental midget label before the Sox. I’d be pretty happy with that kind of outcome on Gio.

    You guys do understand that the offensive and defensive WAR numbers don’t add up to a total fWAR right? They’re different values. Moncada was a league average starter at 2.0 fWAR.

    Sox trade for Yonder Alonso; Alex Call to CLE

    They still need a backup catcher if they sign Grandal. It would likely mean Castillo is traded. Total speculation but they could use Alonso and Beef Wellington to pitch Manny. If that fails they pitch Grandal with Alonso and if successful they ship Castillo out to a catcher needy team.

    Sox trade for Yonder Alonso; Alex Call to CLE

    He doesn’t have an extra year. He has a vesting option with a buyout. If he sucks and/or we don’t need him he’s not going to get that extra year.

    Palka also probably already in a a corner until you call Eloy up if you think about it. Can flip Yonder later to free up the logjam.

    Yeah, I don’t get the gloom. What if they hold onto Abreu until this situation is resolved? Can probably flip Alonso or worst case eat a small amount and ship him. We’re not taking on an anchor hahaha.

    It’s been speculated Abreu might have more value than we’re thinking. If that’s the case I think we’d be surprised by the return.
