You don't have to do the ping pong thing.  Just reward teams for trying. 

That will reward teams for trying. There is no inherent benefit for NOT trying. A draft wheel is another option. If there is a draft wheel, picks can never be traded.

Season finale hopefully

Sanchez should be batting below Mendick and Collins (give them the PAs) but it's whatever.

I don't think you need the dog and pony show of ping pong balls and draft wheels.  Just incentivise teams that come the closest to making the playoffs.  If they did that the Tigers wouldn't be sitting here with 46 wins.  They would be trying to win games to move up in draft position.  What a concept.

The team with the best record who doesn't make the playoffs gets the first pick and on down.  So this year Cleveland would get the 1st pick and Detroit would get the 20th.  That would put an end to the race to the bottom.

This is a ridiculously stupid idea.

The incentive to win is that whether you finish with 67 wins or 87 wins, you still have the same odds to get a high pick. Also, you'd have no idea where you're drafting until the winter meetings. There is zero guarantee of a high pick. You could win 65 games and pick 20th, if that is where the ping pong balls put you. The first time that happens, will be the first time that teams try to win instead of tank. 

Most years, if you don't make the playoffs you're going to pick in the teens anyway.

Maybe if you did equal weighting and put six worst teams in a group.  Then 7-14 in a group with equal weighting.  Maybe can't be in top group more than two consecutive years.

So does Collins have a spot as DH/1B/C next year? 

It’s the Sox.  

No need to even answer that question, or dream about Grandal.

They should consider Grandal regardless of Collins. They could bring in Puig, Calhoun and Grandal, bring back Abreu and still have starts available for Collins. It's a nice way to let him prove himself. Remember there are 26 men on the active roster next year and relievers have to face 3 batters.

Season been long over, but a busy day deserves me watching my favorite team. Looks like they are doing well so far.

God Ricky loves him some Yolmer.  If Ricky for whatever reason is their long term answer. I figure the Sox will give Yolmer a 3 year extension and trade Madrigal.

McCann is just terrible at pop ups. 

That's about the 15th time this season that someone has said that.  I guess he must be pretty bad at it.

Leury killed the momentum with his crummy first pitch swinging groundout to first with men at second and third. F*** him.

Wow lol not even in the second to last game... Sheesh

Nova led the league in starts, and finished with a 4.72 ERA. Acceptable season. Let him know the season starts on March 26th next year.
