Why are we taking on salary here???

To prove Jerry can authorize over a $200 million payroll mark so nobody can accuse the Sox of being cheap, just dumb?

Tax incentives for the Sox in terms of depreciating the value of roster "assets"?

But hey they spent the money, amirite?

Wait a second: 

McGuire was .5 WAR and Diekman .3? 

And we're sending cash or a PTBNL?

LMAO. 

 

OK Richard, have yourself a last trade as GM of a professional franchise.   🤡

McGuire was about to be DFA, so getting someone with a positive WAR is a win.

They basically traded for a guy who the Sox were only carrying to try to trade. Otherwise without options he's have to be DFA'd. I think in that case Reese could elect free agency

Reese was getting cut any day now.  Does that not matter here?

It does if you're trading the wrong one and completely disregard the concept of defense?

Of course, could we really sell high on a Zavala hot streak?

 

Wow we really boxed ourselves in there with that roster construction, Hahn is basically like Houdini...tons of credit going his way for this one.

At least until he actually pitches.

In a vacuum it's great. It's the unnecessary addition of another 5 million dollars that we overpay the backend of our roster that adds up every offseason.

Diekman to the IL I heard but Ohtoni will be here for tomorrow's game I assume ;) 😉 

Shhh...we just signed a different Japanese player named Ohtoni and are promoting the heck out of it, already stocked the souvenir shops with the same jersey number as the Angels' version.

As a lefty signed thru 24 to pair with Bummer, I wonder if this is a pre-move for something Crochet related, either including him in a trade, or keeping him in the minors next year to start.

There's been a ton of smoke about Crochet starting next year.

Wondering if Crochet becomes the secondary piece for an acquisition in the next 22 hours.
