    ESPN Lineup Ranking

    Twins being 12 just totally invalidates this list lol...how in the hell is that lineup worse than the Cubs??? Or Angles or A's or Braves even. Set an MLB record for HRs and added Donaldson. Preposterous.

    Castellanos to Reds , rumored 4/64M

    Yeah I don't get why people are so heated about this, most people loved the idea until Mazara / Keuchel were acquired. Really don't see how adding a 2-3 WAR RF and ascending bat would be bad unless it's for 5 or more years. None of the core is up until after 4.

    White Sox sign Gio Gonzalez

    Cease’s xFIP actually suggested he was pretty unlucky and was closer to 4.4. I think he’ll be fine and I would be surprised if he didn’t have a good amount of leash this year.

    The cost of starting pitching

    Holy crap I hadn't realized how barren the cupboard is. Beyond the extreme need for a guy like Kuechel, I don't understand the lack of urgency on the next tier. Just please for the love of god sign a Gio or Miley so you have options. What can the extra cost be to lock that up? $1-$3 million above market? Figure it out guys. The value of one of those guys over a Despaigne is monumental (well above their own WAR add) and can only enhance trade leverage.

    Sox acquire Nomar Mazara for Steele Walker

    On the bright side...$5 Million for Mazara and signing let’s say Betances gives you similar WAR value to an Ozuna or Castellanos projection at far less $$. Just need to ACTUALLY spend the remaining dollars to make this worth it.

    All I’m gonna say is they better spend the money on starters now. Even if just a Kuechel, would be disastrous to get two SP with no upside. Seperately, what about contacting the Yankees on Happ + Frazier? Fits the “DH that can play OF” type Merkin says they’re after. More of a pipe dream but also Price/Martinez.

    Nomar Mazara Speculation

    Lol I think he’s referring to the prospect return there.

    Nomar Mazara Speculation

    My only hope is Menichino can fix him, or he figures it out a bit. Wouldn’t be the first time for a former top spec at 24/25 to figure it out lol, he was so rushed up.

    Nomar Mazara Speculation

    If this means investing heavily in other areas I’m good with it, he should be cheap and still has big upside. Probably won’t kill you even on a good team regardless. But...this means we really need to invest in SP (FA or eating salary). I guess we could also hit the reliever market hard.

    Successful Plan B; What’s Next?

    Idk, I really doubt it'll take 2 top 30 prospects plus serious value. The packages I've seen tossed around are not near that.

    Sox in on Marcell Ozuna? I mean, maybe. Or not.

    Where does he rank along with guys like Castellanos in jumps and other next-gen stats? We’re acting like it’s Ozuna vs a bunch of good outfielders. It’s not. Most of the guys available for RF are AWFUL in the field, especially some of the options this board favors.

    What makes everyone think Ozuna is a worse right fielder than the other butchers we’ve looked at? Because he’s a big dude and he wears his hat sideways? Because he’s had some bad highlights? The dude is pretty talented and has had good seasons even patrolling CF. We KNOW Castellanos and guys like Mancini are atrocious fielders, among the worst in baseball. He’s also a positive regression hitting candidate, balances the lineup given his ability to hit RH, and has upside for more.
