    Yeah that’s an overstatement. I get it, he’s an incredible talent that deserves to be the highest paid player ever, but this is news today, and forgotten tomorrow. 

    I’m only happy now because the offseason moves can really get going.

    This team is more than two years away from .500, IMHO.

    Oh I don’t disagree it’s wishful thinking to be good in 2-3 years. Wouldn’t surprise me a bit if JR has seen his last over .500 team as chairman.

    They have picked a lane. They are developing pitching and supporting those pitchers with defense. I believe they are going to lose like 110 games, but at least they have picked a lane.

    Yes. The path they’re clearly on is- clean the stink out of the clubhouse, and prioritize defense. Then, when a prospect is truly ready, bring him in. It’s actually not a bad plan with what has happened. It’s too bad Grifol made it through to this point, but we can’t have everything we want with JR running things. Hopefully it’s a .500 or close team in 2025, and a true decent team in 2026, that can contend. We can hope.

    Wouldn’t it be some s**t if the Sox were insistent on Jackson Holliday 

    They’re probably smarter than that…or should be. They know the Os aren’t moving him, and have other prospects that are attractive. Just need to know when to pull the trigger when it’s realistic.

    Feels like this guy will go sometime during the Winter Meetings next week.

    Yep. Or before. Seems like this year’s Winter Meetings are a day shorter. Used to be- get there Sunday night, three full days, then the Rule 5 on Thursday morning and leave. This year, the Rule 5 is Wednesday. The way they communicate now, the trade/signing aspect of the Meetings is a little overrated, especially if it’s only two full days now. The Eloy and Cease moves could really happen anytime in the next couple weeks. 

  6. Not sure if the Getz comments are tongue in cheek, but I’m pretty happy with the moves and comments so far. Obviously the Sox aren’t winning a ton of games in 2024, and DeJong could be here for a very short time, but at least they’re trying to bring in big leaguers that can help the roster. They aren’t going down the Colas route at multiple positions, and that’s a good thing. The Hahn/Williams rebuild is done. It failed. Now it’s Getz’s turn to try, like it or not. We’ll see if the team is good in 25 and 26.

  7. Would never vote for a guy after suspended post Mitchell Report.

    Beltran, Beltre, Buehrle, Helton, Hunter, Jones, Mauer, Rollins, Utley, Wagner

    Was never really a Jones or Wagner supporter, but they’re close enough that I would probably check them if I actually had a vote.
