    Fans at opening day? Fans at Opening Day! (confirmed)

    With COVID numbers continuing to heavily trend downward, we could be in a much better situation by mid April. Even more people will be vaccinated and I would expect a bump in fans by mid May assuming the trend continues.

    Folty signs with Rangers

    Trevor Cahill and Mike Leake could be potential minor league deal options for SP depth

    Dodgers sign Bauer (3/102, opt-outs, 40-45-17)

    he also gets opt outs after the first two seasons and could easily search for another giant payday

    Realistic expectation for Vaughn in 21

    I'm confident Vaughn will hit too, I'm just not sure if it will be right away his rookie season. He has the best hit tool in the organization after Madrigal. Personally, I would send him to AAA and force him to earn a promotion.

    Realistic expectation for Vaughn in 21

    I think its best to keep expectations for Vaughn largely in check until he proves otherwise. Rookies almost always tend to struggle in their adjustment to the major leagues. The advanced scouting and pitching is at a completely different level even to AAA. The club really needs to bring in a guy like Brad Miller who can play a few different positions and DH a bit.
  6. I was in the "Sox must extend Lynn" camp initially, but since have opened up to the idea there might be more risk than value in an extension for a player that turns 34 years old in May. I think you squeeze what you can out of him this season and then evaluate.
  7. I agree. Rodon is far from a sexy signing, but at least he is cheap and gives us pitching depth. He could be used as a backend starter or out of the bullpen. If healthy he can be effective.

    Sadly, I doubt the Sox have had much, if any, contact with Bauer and his camp. There is no chance, even on a one year deal, they shell out $30+ million right now. Would it be the ultimate win now move? Absolutely, but it just is not going to happen.

    Madrigal 3000 hits "very reachable"

    I'm all for confidence, but Madrigal needs to shut up and prove himself for a full season at the MLB level before even dreaming about 3,000 career hits.
  10. Toss in Chris Archer and Mike Leake to the scrap heap as well

    Jerry Reinsdorf is cheap

    At best TBH Lynn/Eaton/Hendriks is not enough for a club trying to win the WS

    For what it is worth^

    Sox won't go anything beyond a one year deal + a club option with buyout. Cruz is nearly 41 years old, the wheels could fall off at any time. Father time always wins eventually.

    Twins spend roughly $122 million in 2020 and have about $97 million on the books for 2020 as of now. They still have room to spend

    Those moves would fit the budget for sure
