Lol it’s hilarious. The idea that one of the best bats in baseball who is good defensively will make the team not significantly better.

My argument is that money would've been better spent on Cole or Strasburg, if they were even in that stratosphere.

Does anybody actually believe the Sox are doing the right thing in not even sniffing on Rendon? 
I see it as Moncada+Rendon >>> Only Moncada

You make room for really good players

The Abreu contract, while absolutely horrible, actually decreased his salary in 2020.  

Because he took the QO.  That's not the argument.

Lol...honestly he could be.  Really sad that he’s the caliber of free agent we should probably expect at this point.

definitely not attainable for a team with only an 86 million payroll 

Would have been an even friendlier contract than what they offered Machado

And it will be a fight to get him.

I think Hahn hyped up the two starter angle long enough that even he knows he needs to land one name guy.  That guy will likely be Keuchel and my guess is he will get around 3/$60M.

He didn't (additionally) mention that they would be from the Korean and Japanese leagues...

With as much as this board complains about defense......

Listen, of course Rendon makes this team better. It's just a dumb allocation of resources for the Sox.

Rendon never made sense. 

Why move a budding star who is a GG caliber 3B to spend a bunch of money to downgrade two positions defensively? 

It would be spending money just to say you did it. 

It would be spending your money as effectively as possible.  Now we’re stuck with second & their tier free agents or just nothing to spend it on.  But hey, I wouldn’t want to love Moncada around again.
