Chris Sale to start the year on the IL. Looks like getting a couple of good pieces for Betts might have been the right call.

He is starting the year on the DL because of the flu/pneumonia. Nothing to do with his arm.

The Yankees have lost: Judge, Severino and Stanton. Trading Betts was iditoic and absurd as the Red Sox would be within 2 projected wins of the Yankees without the move.

The idea of Chris Sale getting sick and losing 10 lbs is perhaps the most terrifying concept possible.

Especially weird that it is announced he's going to be starting off on the IL even though the season doesn't even start for a month.

At the time you responded, I meant to say that I would be surprised if he didn't end up on the IL at some point this season because of his arm.

In hindsight if Kopech ends up being a #3 or better Sox absolutely came out on top of that trade. Yes they won a world series...but his impact compared to 5-6 years of Yoan and Kopech tilts to Sox big time

Yelich and Brewers closing in on a big 7 year extension. With the two years left on his deal and the mutual option this could be for 10 years total.

The Trade itself was great for the red sox. The extension might turn out bad but the 3 years they traded for were lights out, he was worth 17.4 war those 3 years.

Still a good trade for the sox even though moncada took longer than expected.

Sale is done; sad to see it. Always will like the guy and root for his dominance. His arm is broken it seems though; he wasn't even going anywhere near 100% and now they're seeking 3rd opinions which most definitely means the MRI was very bad. You don't seek third opinions to confirm good news.

One TJS doesn't mean a guy is done.

He's been battling shoulder and elbow issues for 2 years now. Maybe this will heal all and he'll come back as good as ever. He'll be 31 soon and 32 the next day he steps on the field to pitch. He's not getting any younger.

They got a World Series out of it.  They're super pleased with how that deal turned out.. BOTH teams should be pleased.

The present 2020 draft proposal would consist of five rounds and a 100K limit on upfront bonus money with the remainder deferred over two years. This would lead to prospects sitting out the draft and waiting for next year. Related issue would be getting another year of school eligibility. First comment is that MLBPA is not looking out for future members in this situation.

Technically, union shouldn't be looking out for them. At best these players wont be union members for 2 years and most will never be union members for any length of time.

I just read something interesting. The way it is set up now, the highest paid MLB player in 2020 is going to be Prince Fielder who is owed $24 million.
