Trade Watch Rumor

Recommended Posts

I think it’s super smart of Texas to wait till the last minute. Maybe there was a structured deal in place but they are waiting till all suitors up there bids because lynn is the last of anything good out there. Hopefully Sox have something in place even if it’s a bullpen arm.

I have no problem with them standing pat. But when you talk big and don't deliver, it's not a good look. The excuses afterwards aren't good enough. 

Who from the organization said they would make a big move?

"Luis Robert for Lynn"

"No"

"Vaughn"

"No"

"We won't trade in that case!"

"K"

LOL if anyone is asking for Robert they're completely out of their minds. That said, beyond players already in MLB + Vaughn + Kopech we're pretty light in the upper minors.

They just traded one earlier today where that exact situation happened. 

Exactly! Darvish was sort of the same thing too.

Who is talking big? Literally all of the noise is coming from outside the house.

If the Sox had to trade Kopech or Cease or Vaughn to get Lynn or Clevinger, I am glad they are standing pat, if that is what they are doing.

In their defense, they haven't really talked much about it.  There has been plenty of rumors that they've looked at pitchers, but much of what we're going off of is speculation.

They clearly leaked that Nightengale story yesterday about Clevinger.

Dude people have to work and want to know whats going on with the deadline. You're in here rambling about racism and having pissing contests. This is about trades. The trade deadline. Playoff baseball etc. Go derail a thread that's less important to others right now.

yes, every post in this thread is about the trade deadline.

ive' made tons of posts about trades. meanwhile you've made one post in this thread and it had nothing to do with the topic at hand. congratulations. keep posting some fake rumors and keep that insider cred.

You and I have vastly different definitions of “clearly”

As someone who was critical of sox talking big and not delivering in 18 offseason...this was not that.

I wanted Clevinger or Lynn or obviously Woodruff (or Degrom), but if it's not there it's not there. I'm just glad dunning did what he's done so far.

Here we go again with this made up bullshit.   WHEN DID RICK HAHN COME OUT TO ASSURE EVERYONE THAT THEY 100% WOULD BE ADDING A STARTING PITCHER HERE IN THE DEADLINE.   WHEN?

Bidding war. Keep an eye on ATL 

Interesting.  Hopefully the Sox don't overpay if they win the war.

It was literally just "Sox and Indians have talked Clevinger" which could have been true. There could have been quick discussion for a move that was clearing not going to happen. Not the same as Rick Hahn or KW getting front of mic saying they are making a big move.

When he would come in from the bullpen for the Sox last year, our section would yell Oh shit.

I think it's pretty clear that Bob is basically a mouthpiece for KW at this point.

I am going to be more upset that we haven't upgraded the bullpen after how it has been the past week or so and without knowing when or if Bummer might be back.
