    I think it's more that Robert and Grandal are still out. Goodwin isn't on the roster once the team is near full strength.

    Adam Frazier to Padres

    In hindsight, especially looking at the cost of the Marte and Gallo trades, the Padres did amazing here (or the Pirates front office are just idiots.... which is not unlikely). I don't care how much they liked Marcano, based on the other deals happening they should have gotten him plus another real prospect. Another example of a team getting a great price by being the first to market.

    Brewers get Escobar

    Kinda seems like the right thread after all then

    Collins Catching Complaints

    They scout versatile players like Muncy, Taylor and Kike that are miscast or undervalued/utilized in other organizations...or Turner, from the Mets, another example. The Padres do it through leveraging their minor league depth, as well as drafting up the middle players (SS/2B/CF) who have enough pop to play on the corners. Or they give big bucks to Machado. Despite the presence of Tatis, they drafted Abrams, added Cronenworth (TB), traded 2B/SS Urias for CF Grisham (another centerpiece), added Profar/Kim....then drafted yet another SS 27th and finally traded for Frazier, who can play 2B/LF/RF/1B and probably 3B.

    The answer was right there.
  8. South Side Hit Men

    Sox @ Royals 7/28, 7:10

    What I liked this season was the improvement in his defense and playing within himself. He was trying too hard last year and to start the season, ended up making bad fielding and baserunning plays, including the one that injured his shoulder (running through the third base coach's stop sign, getting out and hurt all on one play). If he can find a way to stay healthy, he should be OK. That said, I want an upgrade in infield depth from Mendick/Garcia, someone you'd feel comfortable with filling in the middle infield, possibly also 3rd base, for a few weeks and not fret about either side of the equation. The Sox should be fine in the OF, but need more depth in the infield across the organization. They made a good step with this year's draft, but it will take time for these players to work their way through the system. The one true "need" for the post-season, or to survive the stretch to get there, are relievers Tony is going to use. You are already postponing Kopech and Crochet's development for yet another year out of desperation because you weren't willing to spend to bring in a few solid set-up men this off-season.

    Gallo to NYY

    What makes you think he's getting $20M in Arb 3 next yr. when his current year is $6.2M . Wouldn't that be some kind of record like by far ? I think his salary could double or even higher than that but $20M seems way out of line.

    Brewers get Escobar

    I guess "the juice wasn't worth the squeeze" on Escobar. Get ready to either overpay for Story who is in a steep decline, Schoop who can't play D, or............"we added 3 All Star quality players with Eloy, Luis and Grandal coming back. We won't mortgage the multiple future championships for 1 year".

    Every team the kids played on won… and his teammates always said he was their leader. Dude leads by being results driven. Can’t wait for him to be back.

    A lot of people on here decided to fixate on his flaws when the end result is still an awesome baseball player. He's a difference maker and the Sox sorely miss him.

    When nothing happens, all I hope is they slide Yoan over to 2b and put Burger back in. Please

    Gallo to NYY

    it speaks to the how much $$$ is important. Nobody really wanted to take on Gallo's 20 million next year, CBA depending. Let NY do it is my opinion.

    Sox @ Royals 7/28, 7:10

    I understand the division gives them a cushion, but I think there should be more urgency to get the 1 seed. We've seen how much better the Sox play at home vs on the road, and there's a HUGE difference between starting the ALDS at home against a 4/5 seed that just burned its ace as opposed to potentially being on the road. The top of the AL standings are so tight where the best record could absolutely come down to 1-2 games and I think paying a slight prospect premium to prioritize would have been worth it

    They need to re-evaluate their training staff in the offseason and hold someone accountable because it’s inexcusable how many injuries they have had this season.

    Ding ding ding. I always presented Madrigal as a budding leader for a reason. Dude games and wins.

    Maybe they know somethings amiss with our trading staff. ( sorry brother - my brain has gone looney in this lead up to Friday ) 😆

    You think they still make a move or two?

    Sox @ Royals 7/28, 7:10

    The worst part about losing Madrigal is that you could see the development/improvement happening right before his injury. He was making more consistent hard contact than we'd seen up to that point in his career. It seemed like he was beginning to find the ideal balance between selling out for contact at all costs vs actually doing damage. I think his absence is felt the most vs very good pitching. He's someone who would have been able to make consistent contact and not be overwhelmed by the level of pitching we saw in Milwaukee or will see in the playoffs.

    Is that the main reason they didn't go after Escobar?

    We know why Escobar fell apart and now we know why we’re not getting Trout.

    I would 100% support Baez for what you wrote above. Plus he hits the ball out of the park, which we sorely need.

    FYI - FO is very focused on incoming medicals this year - more than ever.
