    I was. My comment was more about there being a dearth of MI talent available at the TDL. Senzel's probably more a guy to catch grounders once the dust settles. 

    Then my comment stands.  If someone wanted him, there are 13 days until the deadline,  they would have just signed him.

    I thought I recently saw a tweet that stated the Sox had only two full time scouts after cutting to the bone because of "supposed" financial losses.

    If that is true (I have no idea) that's cutting your nose off to spite your face.

    Scouting, drafting and developing are absolutely essential and crucial to any good organization.


    The results sure make a statement if that is actually true.

    Man, I feel like you read one sentence of a post and make up the rest.   Nobody on this site wants to hold down any player if they are able to play at the major league level.  Nobody.  

    What we want, please write this down, is players who are promoted when they are ready and have been coached up to their abilities by the minor league coaches.   Nobody WANTS tanking.  What everybody wants is a good team.  

    What everybody, but you and a select others, understands on this site is that this tanking is necessary because the owner will never do the right thing at the right time.  But you can go ahead and keep blaming this site for acknowledging that they fucked up the first rebuild because Jerry wouldn’t do the right thing.  Keep on blaming soxtalk, Greg.  It’s all us 

    One thing I will give greg is his work ethic at Soxtalk. He's put in decades at this.  I am old enough to remember when he was a thoughtful and reflective poster.  These days it's a shtick at best.

    Excellent, I thought we were stuck at 10th for each round.

    Are you familiar with the amount of money the Sox will have to spend ?

    I doesn't get published for a while.

    I was responding to the poster wanting to keep our new pitcher in the minors for a long, long time. Heaven forbid he get called up early and help us win games. I'd say most of this board only cares about tanking and rebuilding and don't care how long it takes. On the contrary i want to win yesterday. I care not about prospects. Give me wins.

    weren't you just rambing on about keeping a 40 win team together?

    LOL     If Grant Smith were Hagen Smith's little brother, you could give him 150k without counting against your pool.  You could drop Hagen by 150k , again LOL.  Next year we need a first rounder with ten to twenty little brothers/cousins.  We save millions and sign EVERYBODY.   LOL system beaten

    Pretty sure someone when to jail for doing that internationally.  Wasn't that the Braves skimming operation?

    I’d rather pick 10th when the draft class is great and 5th when the draft class is weak than the other way around. 

    And we will pick 1st in every round after the 1st round.

    They have had multiple high level prospects that they did the exact opposite with, they did not hold them down but rather promoted them extra fast.  That scenario simply does not happen with this organization

    multiple high level prospects ON THIS CURRENT TEAM.




     This right here.  They are NEVER patient with prospects.

    Sox have been too impatient and too happy dumping salary.  We could have had one of the best pitching rotation in MLB with a little patience.  Crochet, Cease, ReyLo, Fedde and Bummer in the bullpen.  Crochet and Cease are 1-2 in strikeouts in MLB.  150 and 149 respectively today.

    Lopez was a free agent last year.  It was either dump him or lose him for nothing.  They also did really well in that trade with another pending free agent in Giolito who was way more likely to be signed than Lopez as he had actually been dependable... up until his arm fell off.
