Carlos Gomez DFA'd

They are definitely looking at this buy low candidate. He was almost a 100 mil player before he tanked this year.

 

If nothing more than a tryout for next year - why the heck not.

This is my thought. This is a cheap test drive to see what you think of how he fits into the clubhouse.

And if he continues to suck, Hahn and KW are still idiots who love veterans who can't play anymore.

 

 

I'm just wondering how good Houston is if they draft Kris Bryant instead of Appel, and keep JD Martinez around. They probably don't trade for Gomez.

Realistically the dude is owed something just under 2.5 million dollars for the rest of the season. They can look at it as an option on next year.

With all the money KW/Hahn have already wasted I kind of doubt they want to add another $2.5MM on top of it.

 

If they are thinking about signing him for next year, there is good reason not to bring him in. If they aren't interested, then yes, ignore him.

And Rodon over Aiken.

Yes,and an infield of Bryant, Correa, Altuve, and whatever is pretty unreal. Springer and JD Martinez in the corners. It's amazing to think of what they could have been.

The Astros will be fine, just like the Pirates.

 

We can talk about Aiken or Bryant, but they have Bregman, Gurriel and Tucker, too.

 

I watched Tucker in the Quad Cities last month...he's at least two years away, but Bregman and Gurriel will be there from the beginning of 2017.

 

They just need a better starting rotation. And for AJ Reed to figure out things...

This makes me laugh...because you know it's certainly true! One team's trash is usually our treasure--and it's sold to our fan base as if the players were in their prime producing seasons.

Rollins certainly was awful. Hawk kept talking about how he was a Hall of Famer. He reeked.

He's still probably a Hall of Famer.

So if the Sox trade Harambe's apple pies for Albert Einstein, we get two Mike Trouts?

And a lifetime pass to the zoo of your choice...along with 100 Bo Bobbleheads (est. $50 value for each).

 

To top it off, a CD of Benetti's 150 corniest jokes this season, the answers to all the of the 2016 Sox Math questions and a lunch at Giordano's with Alex Snelius.

That would never work, you can't have 2 CFs. Where would you play the second Trout?

When is this resolved? I've read teams have interest in dealing for him which I would assume is more likely than the Astros just releasing him/letting another team just claim him.

They have 10 days from the designation.
