Recommended Posts

So what did I miss in the last 3 hours?  Is it just poop?  Cause damn it to hell if I missed the poop conversation.

Ok, so BuehrleWood hasn't logged back in yet and the girlfriend wants to watch a movie, so fuck it.

 

My guy told me that Kelvin Herrera is coming to Chicago tomorrow to meet with the Sox. 

No idea if it's to sign, or just informational, or maybe he really likes Gibson's Steakhouse. 😋

I bet it's a reliever that Chili is talking about. I doubt it's Ottavino because I've heard they'll only go 2 years. Herrera might be a good guess if someone already said that. 

Wow James, what a lucky guess! 😂😂

Haven’t we learned our lesson yet about signing ex-Royals?

Apparently not...Herrera is toast.

Granted, Soria worked out okay, but these are the kind of moves that make the rest of the baseball world think we really don’t care or have much of a strategic plan.

What am I missing with Herrera? Stats seem solid. Why do you consider him toast?

You couldn’t even make it to the end of your own post before realizing your point wasn’t good.

I think Herrera would be a good signing. He's obviously familiar with the division and he's only 29 so he should have a couple good years left. He was unhittable with  the Royals last year before being traded. Give him the 8th inning and move Jones to the 7th and that's suddenly a really good bullpen.

Soria netting someone who won’t even be our next playoff roster versus 12-15 ex Royals signings that didn’t help at all the last twenty years?  Okay.  In general, they tend to look better against the Sox than ON the Sox.

By that theory, we can only successfully trade with the DBacks and Cubs now.

So it's a bad theory then right?

It’s not an earth moving headline but I like it he could be a solid 7th inning guy, but if he’s signed to be the closer I’d take a pass on him

I seem to remember Sox months ago hearing that our system was overflowing with middle and late relief prospects.

If they manage to increase the payroll by $50-60 million on placeholders and don’t add Machado...this might end up being the worst offseason of all time for Sox fans...worse than Jeff Keppinger as the headliner, even.

Agreed.

 

Relievers and OF'ers is our strength in the minors.

They are overflowing with relief talent but to bank on all that talent developing would be foolish.  Not to mention some of that talent isn't ready.

Let it be Grandal. Should cost the Sox 4/$75,000,100. The extra $100 is to get a 1st baseman’s glove for Collins. The kid needs to concentrate on his bat.

I agree.  When it comes to young relievers, I like having several guys competing for spots and then allowing the winners to prove themselves in low leverage situations.  If all goes well, the first group moves into high leverage roles and the next wave gets their opportunity.

That'd be a big overpay since it was reported that he turned down 4/60M from the Mets already this off-season .

Herrera wouldn't be a terrible signing, but his massive drop in K/9 is a little alarming. Still only 29 though.
