Offseason Targets

I think the Rays would have a lot of interest in Matt Foster also as part of a Snell deal, likely as a 4th piece, or as a 3rd piece if the first 2 pieces were huge.

I think the deal that the Rays would want, without including Vaughn, would be something like Kopech + Stiever + Bailey + Foster or Kopech + Dalquist + Thompson + Foster, something like that.  And I would be very uncomfortable giving up really any of those guys, but most uncomfortable giving up Kopech, then Stiever, then Bailey, then Dalquist/Thompson.  But I think that either could be a fair best offer and if the Sox made it, I couldn't say they "overpaid" at the time on paper.

Foster feels like someone who could have peaked last year as he lacks the pure stuff of almost every other reliever in baseball.  It wouldn't shock me if he becomes a lot more mediocre as baseball gets more looks at him.

Can we stop with the 100 fake insider accounts?

Apparently not. It's a staple around here. Something to be proud of.

Well yeah but you're taking on $23 million or so of a contract this year, so the return should be tiny, if not nothing. I'm still skeptical the FA market would give him that in 1 year.

No I’m not going to stop. If you don’t like than don’t come here. 

You are posting fake insiders going back and forth with each other over nonsense. If its an actual rumor that would make sense to post

Sorry that I’m ruining your enjoyment and by the way that Nancy’s Pizza tweet was a reply to Al’s tweets below. It just wouldn’t let me copy everything.

If a team is willing to pay Bryant,  the return would be near zero. But it will take about 25 million and you only get him for one year.

I appreciate pulling the relevant stuff but, yeah, no need to pull the whole feed in. People can follow them for that.

Damn.  It sounds like the Rangers are tryng to package one of their bad contracts along with Lynn.  

A former WS hero is not a name I was expecting to hear.....

Could be a bit less than 25, but either way, if that's the case seems like a no brainer to me. Sox would get compensation pick for their troubles, irk cubs fans and stack their lineup for a '21 WS run without dipping into their top talent? Then go back to the drawing board for RF next off season when conditions will probably be more favorable. I'd do that all day.

Adrus and Odor are their only bad contracts.  Neither are near fits at all.

Unless Madrigal is a return for Lynn and Odor (not a big fan)

I always get nervous about free agent decisions around Thanksgiving due the fact that Tori Hunter signed with the Angels on Thanksgiving eve spurning the White Sox overtures ruined my holiday that year.

Honestly it's not hard to figure out. It has to be Andrus. He's the only guy on their roster with WS experience. He's also got $43.5M coming to him over the next 3 years (2021-2023).
