Padres Acquire Clevinger per Multiple Reports

I think he's as is in the know as most other sox insiders; that means he may know one thing a year, but in general he knows nothing outside of some buddies opinion, or misinformation.

I'll use raBBit as an example. All he did was tell Soxtalk he had worked so much he doesn't talk to Sox people anymore and yada yada when the Sox were bad... now the Sox are good last 8ish months and guy is out on twitter posting rumor after rumor from his "sources" that 12 months ago he no longer had. 

Many of those guys put out tons of rumors but only remember when they occasionally get one right.

If you predict 100 trades and 10 of them happen you predicted a lot but you got 90% wrong. But many operate that way even some pretty well known journalists.

that was bucketofsuck. He may have got one right 7 or 8 years ago, and rode his "insider" status for quite a while, all the time, never providing anything else of substance. He never had anything else, but threw some crap out there when someone would ask for info, never accurate. Gave us RH, KW private conversations. it was so BS is was laughable. But get one, and many think you have RH's office bugged.

Wonder what will happen if the Indians want Cease instead of Kopech in a trade for Clevenger.

Then pull the trigger and don't think twice about it. Then the rotation becomes Giolito, Clevinger, Kopech, Kuechel, and Dunning through at least 2023.

Rosenthal just talked about Celvinger and the White Sox. He said GMs don’t worry so much about inter division trades but the Sox would have to pay a higher price than any of the other suitors.

I really hope we don't give away good prospects for any of these guys. I mean it would be nice if we could win this year but the 2020 World Series will come with a big asterisk. It's not even worth it.

It will be a more legit win than the 2017 world series though.

Personally I would not care. If we won the WS add an * all you want. 

What would worry me more is trading prospects away and a COVID outbreak causes the season to be cx.

The way this season has played out, there should be no asterisk. The expected good teams will make the playoffs. The expected division winners will win the divisions.

The trades aren't only for this season. They are to try and steal a world series this year and have a great shot moving forward. I'm not sure we would be willing to give up a lot for Lynn for this reason.

This is objectively false. 

If/when the Sox make the playoffs, you'll be hanging on every pitch just like any other year. No one will be watching the moment saying "That Luis Robert HR was awesome but COVID, man. And if they win the World Series, the memories of those games will still be etched in our heads like they were in 2005, even if you don't get to be in the ballpark to see them. 

Will there be an asterisk from the fans of the teams that didn't win it? Probably.....but fuck them. Winning a World Series is about the memories it creates for the fan. And those memories won't be changed because of a virus.

I can't recall a team ever being so aggressive at a deadline.  Crazy.  Not sure it's wise to go all-in in a shortened season with an expanded playoff and the Dodgers in your division, but give them props for trying.

Damn, really wanted this guy. 

They were never going to trade him to the Sox, as long as there were other suitors.

My hope is they knock the Cubs out of postseason and then Dodgers beat them

One of the busiest teams at the trade deadline in a long time.  I wonder what they had to give up.  Their farm system has already taken quite a hit.

I stand by my feelings that he would have been a grenade in the Sox clubhouse.
