Sign a bat, trade Collins for a reliever

I wouldn’t trade Collins for a reliever.  His plate patience is sick and his triumphant return to AAA has me thinking his bat could be pretty good.

Absolutely.. I was worried they were going to do it.

The key to this pitching staff is still Rey Rey Lopez.

I’d say cease

So who goes to the pen when Kopech comes back?? I’m assuming Rey.. which may be the best place for him. 

Lopez or GioG.

Should have a nice rangy infield (well at three spots) too to help him out.

Timmy really needs to improve. He's gonna see alot of groundballs with Keuchel. And Abreu... well... let's hope he isn't too much of a liability.

I said anything 3/$55M or less and I’d be pleased. I am in fact pleased. This is a nice signing and hopefully we can get solid mid rotation work out of him for at least 2020-2021. Nice deal Sox!

I like the move.  

Seems like soft tossing lefties always last well into their 30's.

We're going to win the central next year.

Trying to avoid injured pitchers while waiting on our injured pitchers.

Yep.

3/55 is very good value....now put the other 70m that was gonna go to Wheeler for extensions for core talent. 

Good job RH.

Merkin says the Sox are still going to add one reliever and one bat so it’s likely going to happen.

Unless the Twins start making some moves, the Sox definitely look like the best team on paper.  The Indians are selling and the Tigers and Royals are jokes.

 I believe the Sox are going to shock me on the level of a Mookie Betts type deal.

Nothing they've done yet is going to get those phones ringing in the ticket office.

Reinsdorf is going  to have to do more than provide the base  with the allure of a green oasis where there's only sand.

Hopefully the 4th year isn’t an easily obtainable vesting option, but happy with 3/55. 
The staff is now complete...let’s not stop with RF. I can live with a Mazara/McCann platoon at DH.

Well now that they broke the silence with Boras, let's do one more with him and sign Castellanos. If Nick is fine being a primary DH, but can play RF when the Sox face lefties (then Grandal can DH and McCann catch on those days).

I'm ok with this. At least we spent the money. Keuchel is probably a 2 or 3 win pitcher for the next few years and he will probably be worth his contract for the most part

Grandal would probably be the main guy catching him as well, which should help him steal strikes.
