  1. If JR hates Giolito specifically, that's one thing. But if JR routinely goes after union reps, that's one way to alienate your entire roster and to ensure nobody would ever sign in Chicago.
  2. The realm of being petty over money is understandable to me. Its not like specific union reps cost him any more money, so there’s no practical point to it for JR. Is he gonna get rid of every guy that takes that role for no practical reason?
  3. Thanks for the background. Again, if JR took out his meta union philosophy on individual union reps for no good productive (Sox) reason, I'm stunned to learn about. MLBPA is going to see to it that rules are followed no matter who the team rep is.
  4. I mean, I can possibly understand JR has an attitude, but the fact that there would be no Sox upside to dumping a union rep, and that JR would take it that far out of spite would be surprising to learn
  5. Maybe Im not understanding, are the Sox known for union busting activities? The MLBPA isn’t going to be denied anything, Giolito or no Giolito. There are way too many powerful and interested parties on the players sides for the players to ever be denied anything as far as player rights these days
  6. Fair enough. Ill just add, my impression of TJ pitchers in their 30s returning to form is not good. Correct me if Im wrong. If the velocity is down, I’m not gonna be optimistic especially.
  7. I don’t think moot point is the right way to describe it exactly. Fatal flaw is better. The Sox in particular should be trading high on players, flipping for prospects and youth because other than the payroll blips, they seem big $ ticket item averse. If their scouting department can’t sign good prospects, then use other teams’ scouting departments.
  8. Other than a more fair percentage of revenue which the players have already gotten in recent times in all sports, every team has union reps, and its not a ‘problematic’ thing. More of an is what it is thing. From ownership perspective. The awesome return would be dumping his pus arm.
  9. I feel like Cueto is more likely to have a 3.35 ERA in 2023 than Clevinger.
  10. I don’t know Pedro or Colas at all, but I feel some kind of annoying platoon thing happening. That can also be Thanksgiving dinner reappearing for a final farewell
  11. This team needs to stop giving away young prospects if all they are getting is questionable mediocrity in return. f*** it. Lets stop doing these same things and expecting different results. *shouts at clouds *
  12. Still waiting for the day the Sox land people you don’t have to hold your nose to regard seriously as an exiting add. That’ll be the dayayay that I die.
