Sox trade for Yonder Alonso; Alex Call to CLE

Recommended Posts

acquiring Yonder also doesn't hurt in terms of the public relations for Machado if he ends up choosing the Sox (because they would have offered the most money).  He can always say that the Alonso angle was one of the deciding factors.

Lol what? Not once in that sentence did he say DH. For the love of God, take a break from soxtalk for a few hours. Now you're the one giving us all brain aneurysms.

It’s interesting that Peavy44 stops posting for the night and Caulfield comes right in to take his place.

Yes, because he’s made more spelling/grammatical errors in ten days than I have made in a decade.

We must be the same person!  You got me.

I wasn’t accusing you of being the same person, you clearly understand what a comma is.  I was referring your recent string of completely irrational posts.

Maybe.  Maybe saving this money on Alonso and Encarnacion allows them to keep Kluber and keep their window open longer.

or it gives them more flexibility to take on Kemp's contract in a Kluber trade where they're getting guys like Verdugo and Ruiz, etc.

As for the trade, why the heck not? A little repetitive with Palka, but as others have said, even if this moves our chances with Machado from 10% to 15%, why not? Palka was fun last year and all, but Alonso is a much better bet to be better next year, and we can still put Palka in a corner if need be. 

I like the move, If we strike out on the whales, you just use Alonso as a part time player. Sox have tons of payroll room, so I am not concerned about the $9M. 

Go get em Rick!

There’s clearly some cabin fever here.  For the people saying this move is awful...uhhhh, you could just trade him if Machado signs elsewhere. This is not a big deal whatsoever.
