  1. Just want to point out TA has played in just under 69% (nice) of Sox games over the last four seasons. Not exactly a player who is showing a strong durability factor. Look, he’s a good player, but I don’t consider him an untradeable guy. If the Sox want to make a good old fashioned baseball trade with him involved, go ahead and do it. If it’s just for “he’s gotta go” reasons, then I’d be more on board with seeing what a new coaching staff can bring out of TA.

    Rule 5 and then everyone bounces if I recall past Winter Meetings correctly.  Hahn is probably already waiting to board at the Southwest terminal...

    They did that on Thursday mornings in the past. It will be a full day today including the draft.

  3. The good news is spring training isn’t for 10 weeks. Most teams are in the same position as the Sox as far as acquiring players for 2023. s%*# may happen tonight or tomorrow. Certainly the next three weeks will be active for everyone. Let’s see what the roster looks like on 1/1/23 compared to the rest of the league.

    I suggest everyone listen to the WST podcast with Garfein and Merkin. 

    More talk about trading Jimenez and Robert than Giolito or Anderson. Hendriks was also mentioned. 

    He said they're listening on everyone basically. 

    I listened to it.

    You can skip it.

  5. Fred McGriff will be announced as a Hall of Famer in a couple hours…finally! Would be happy if Dale Murphy and Don Mattingly make it too. Curt Schilling- wouldn’t say I’m throwing a party- but he deserves it based on his baseball career. 

  6. The Committee vote is being announced Sunday night on MLB Network. 

    Belle, Bonds, Clemens, Mattingly, McGriff, Murphy, Palmeiro, Schilling are on the ballot.

    The voters are Paul Beeston, Theo Epstein, Steve Hirdt, Chipper Jones, Greg Maddux, Arte Moreno, Kim Ng, Jack Morris, LaVelle Neal, Ryne Sandberg, Susan Slusser, Lee Smith, Dave St Peter, Alan Trammell, Frank Thomas, Ken Williams

    12 out of 16 get you in. Fred McGriff is a no-doubter. I’d be fine with anyone except Belle and Palmeiro.
