Enough already with the ex-Cubs.

I know yours is in green, but the ex Cub factor is starting to become a concern.

 

When you look at him though, is he really any worse than Tyler Flowers?

Ha, they've now acquired 2 of my least favorite Cubs players of the last decade (Shark/Soto)

Grudzielanik would be the icing on the cake.

I love it. No risk at all, has the potential to be our best catcher if he's healthy.

 

If we're not going to pay up to acquire a "real" catcher, throwing a bunch of somewhat intriguing crap at the wall is the next best option. Between Flowers, Soto, Kottaras, and Brantly, we've got a better chance of finding a decent season of performance.

I don't understand why they'd go after him, but a Minor League deal is very low risk. It's worth a shot.

Likely due to Soto being a right handed veteran bat that can take over if Flowers misses time or regresses.

 

I like the signing.

Signing reclamation projects not being counted on to contribute is fine. The past couple seasons, it seemed the Sox were counting on some of these guys to be pretty good.

the past couple of seasons, i am surprise the sox didn't use some of the vendors

to see if they couldn't man a position or pitch.

Anyone know much about his defensive reputation?

 

It'd seem kinda weird to keep the 2 righties, Soto and Flowers.

Agreed fathom but I have really turned around on Jeff.
