Sox acquire Lance Lynn for Dane Dunning and Avery Weems

Recommended Posts

If Dunning the best prospect we surrender I'm for this

Still rather Paxton

Lynn is not the ace some think he is

How would you all feel if they followed this up by signing Joc and Hendriks?

At this point, I’m expecting us to sign Quintana, Hendricks, Joc, and possibly some bat that can open the season at DH.

I feel ya but I think people are overestimating how many innings Dunning was pencilled in for next year.  100?  Maybe 120?  
 

So 3 years until he’d be a potential horse, assuming he doesn’t get shelled.  
 

I think we traded at peak Dunning value

And at his age, that’s not exactly someone that’s untouchable

Does this mean we're keeping Stiever for the near future?

Probably. He doesn't seem MLB ready yet though.

The amount of over-valuing of unproven, best case ceiling #3 Dane Dunning in this thread is astounding but not suprising.

Joc, Hendriks, and Hand would make this slightly better.

So would a draft pick be attached to lynn if he leaves in free agency?  If so, then it isnt as bad as im thinking

Nope

Is there a possibility that Lynn will sign an extension? Because I’d like this deal a lot more if so.

Sure it’s possible but I think it’s not something we should think is likely.

He feasted on crappy lineups chasing garbage pitches. You can tell teams started to adjust to it and he hit the wall hard!

If Dunning is worth 2.5 WAR per season for the Rangers and Lynn is worth 5 WAR in 2021 and walks after this year they still traded away 10 WAR for nothing over 6 years. 

Reynaldo Lopez was worth 2.7 WAR in 2019. This is ridiculous.

We’re going to sign a starter.  I’d love to see that be Paxton over Quintana.

This.

And I’d be happy with it.

"Ceiling" is bullshit, lots of players in MLB history have vastly exceeded their "ceiling". 6 years of Dunning for 1 year of Lynn is stupid. If you can extend Lynn for relatively cheap and get 3 years of ace out of him, then it would be worth it, but he didn't come with an extension, or a guarantee that he'd pitch at his relatively newly discovered ace level.
