Sox Sign Jon Jay; 1 year/$4 mil, Charlie Tilson DFA'd

Recommended Posts

Jay is a CF. If this means Engel is finally a 5th OF I'm all for it. I'm tired of Engel, to say the least. 

Jay career line: .285/.352/.729

Huge upgrade over Engel.

Still just offer the most money. These type of moves probably don't move the needle much. Alonso one guaranteed year and I doubt Jay gets more than 2, probably 1.

He’s not married to Manny’s sister or cousin - so that means he isn’t worthy of our uniform.

Listen, at the end of the day we all know Machado completely alters the franchise for the next 6-7 seasons. If adding a few of his buddies for a year gets him here, you do it. If it doesn’t work, you look like clowns in 2019, but there is minimal long-term harm. 

Oh absolutely.  It’s just a hilarious strategy, doesn’t mean I don’t like it.

But then he won’t care when Manny cheats on his wife so we’re good here.

I guess a Jay/Engel platoon could work:

LF - Eloy

CF - Engel/Jay

RF - Palka

Tilson is probably a goner if this happens.

Yeah. Late in game: Jay shifts over to RF, Engel comes into CF.

So when do we announce Manny's wife as our fifth starter?

And Mannys nephew as the official batboy

If they don't get Machado, all these moves will look so foolish but at least they tried.

If they don't offer the most money, I'm going to label all this as their best effort and won't feel bad for them.

Also, would Jon Jay rat out Manny for any misdeeds?

He's probably being brought in to distract Alonso.

That’s exactly how I feel. It’s pretty funny, but if you look at it from Manny’s perspective, if the offers aren’t nearly as high as you expected, you might as well try getting to play with two of your best friends out of the deal.

This guy fucking sucks.

It was ridiculous when we went out and got Yonder to recruit Manny. That's some whack ass shit.

Now it's just downright clown-style.

Jon Jay SUCKS.

Sure, if it gets us Manny than whatever.

But if this, in any way, signals that we are out on Harper than fuck the Sox.

Holy fucking christ does Jon Jay suck. 34 year old that batted 235 last year ew.

Poor Moustakas, desperately working on his tan and learning all the lines from Scarface.

How would that signal the end of Harper lol Jon Jay won't block Bryce fucking Harper (granted it's always been unlikely they would hand out 2 huge contracts).

Matt Kemp

We've added:

Alex Colome, Kelvin Herrea, Jon Jay, Ivan Nova, James McCann, Yonder Alonso....

 

What an off season of shit so far.  Couldn't get a more broken, average (or below) group.
