Sox in Discussions for Moncada Extension per Y2Jimmy

Recommended Posts

Ok, I concede I'm over reacting. He'll be fine and probably have even a better year this year, than last. Thanks for talking me off the ledge. LOL.

What is happening? Has it been so long since the Sox competed that people have forgotten how to act and are being serious when talking concern about 18 ST AB's?

Everyone should take Moncada's ST stats with a grain of salt every year. He's a repetition/feel based hitter and every time he got hurt it would take him 5-10 games to get his mojo back. Talk to me if he's still scuffling at the end of ST.

also a switch hitter which yea, makes it tougher at the start.

Yes, I was being serious. Although, I qualified my comments by admitting that limited Spring Training stats are not very meaningful, Moncada's completely underwhelming performance may not help his negotiating position. His offense has been completely absent, in his first 18 at bats. He isn't even making hard contact. He's healthy, been in camp the whole time, and even showed up early. I hope that he gets going soon.  

I know that I shouldn't over react, but he does look pretty lost, at the plate. There will be many times, during the season, when even great hitters will go through such slumps, but I'd like to think that it would at least be against really good pitching, not a bunch of Minor League arms. If he had a longer track record, I'd be much less concerned, but he looks more like the 2018 version, than the 2019 version, especially his reversion back to taking close pitches, with 2 strikes. Again, I don't get overly optimistic about a guy having a great Spring, considering the circumstances, but I'd like to see the best players giving a better account of themselves, than what Yoan has been doing.

It's spring training. None of this matters.

If I remember right, Quintana struggled while his extension was being discussed. Maybe something similar where he’s just a little distracted. But more likely it’s typical meaningless spring training stuff.

Fake ass insider Not Steve Cishek tweeted last night things had gone "silent" on purpose, just the way the Sox prefer it blah blah blah.

This overwhelming optimism I’m feeling is unnatural and scary.

Again, I don't think an extension is happening for either Moncada or Giolito until the coming winter. Too much risk on the Sox side after only one good year, too much risk on the player side giving away FA years for not enough. It just doesn't make sense for either party at this point. 

Good call.

He throws a lot of shit on the wall on twitter, but he's also had a lot of info that came true.  Put me in the believer category.

I hate to break it to you, but that is just the first stage of the coronavirus.

Well that should be the biggest contract in team history.

Good.

This would mean we completely avoid any of the Cubs missteps with the young core. Huge for Hahn et al.
