A-Train to 35th Posted November 30, 2022 Share Posted November 30, 2022 17 minutes ago, ChiSox59 said: We also don't solve a lack of lineup balance at all, Gleyber is not a good 2B, and we now have a horrific bullpen. Gleyber also is due around $10M in arb, so not exactly cheap either. I guess if you turn around and sign Nimmo I like it a bit better, but removing our best 2 relievers and then a guy that at least has a great arm and track record and should rebound to at least being serviceable....the pen would be awful. Sox have used far too much money signing relievers in the past when a lot of teams get by with players developed from within the organization. We need to spend money on player's that can play on the field 5-7 day's a week, instead of relievers who pitch to 3 batters. Torres had a 4.1 WAR and hit 24 HR's last year, I'll take any defensive shortcomings for that any day out of 2B. Torres committed 7 errors at 2B last year and 1 at SS in 140 games. While he doesn't solve the need for LH batter, use the money saved to sign one. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
