so everybody.... while we wait it out...

what are you doing today while you're F5'ing this thread?

ME? I'm on my other monitor, writing javascript to make a form autoscroll when URL parameters are present.

Ran some errands after court, now enjoying Modelo's and food at Home Run Inn.

I just guess two things are happening right now. 

1. Trade is closed to happening and need to inform all of the parties. I would have thought something would have leaked. 

2. Waiting on physical results.

This is where I'm at. I've been condition to only expect the unexpected, and assume I'll be let down otherwise. 

Yeah, only way I see this as possible right now is:

Sox felt close yesterday.

Got it done this afternoon, released Burr in a corresponding move, and they'll announce tomorrow same as Grandal. If they don't announce tomorrow, than this is just a bunch of nonsense because they're not keeping anything under wrap for 3 days and they're not making roster moves because of something they might do.

Is this guy the new k0na lol?

All jokes aside, reading through his replies, he seems legit. Called the Burr DFA and is extremely confident about Wheeler. Claiming that he is in Chicago and even saying that the contract is about 5/95

And the Javy Vasquez trade and the John Danks extension. k0na is a fucking legend as far as random insiders go.

At least if we lose out on Wheeler I won't feel like it is the end of the world a la Harper/Machado debacle. 

It'll feel more like 2020 is much more a pipe dream as far as competing goes

After getting burned by the Machado/Harper fiascoes I'm not letting some random Twitter guy break my heart again. We'll see what happens the rest of the week but I'm assuming this continues for another couple weeks.

Burr would have to spend 90 days on an MLB active roster for the Rule 5 team to keep him. 

I dont see that being possible so I dont think this has anything to do with the Rule 5.

You are missing how this would work.

For a team to claim him on waivers they would need a roster spot.

Because teams are protecting their players from the Rule 5 draft, many teams have full to nearly full rosters. That means, for a team to claim him - teams would have to drop people they just protected for the rule 5. 

Having most teams with full rosters to protect people, or with 1 spot open that they can use in the rule 5, could limit teams' willingness to claim this player right now.
