    I think this deal is fine for Porcello. There may not end up being a ton of excess value by the end but it still should end up being pretty solid. It's essentially the Lackey contract, which they...

    In terms of pure upside they're probably the same, but Aiken showed a lot of polish as a high school pitcher and Matuella has nesver had a track record of dominance, showing inconsistent high level...

    Still 2 months to go, but with the injuries (Aiken, Matuella) and inconsistencies (Buehler, Bickford, Cameron) it's looking like a weaker draft.

    That said, I'd still probably grab Aiken and hope...

    I dunno, I think he's got a chance for a good plus hit tool. And probably borderline plus arm as well. I like the pick a lot. He's got deceptive upside. Some of the best bat speed in the high school...

    I just don't think they see Lavarnway as a full time catcher for us. When Ross went down they decided to give Salty less days off instead of playing Ryan. I also think Vasquez needs more than a game...

    Maybe they think he might be able to play 3B/OF.

    Even IF they trade JBJr., and so far there's no news that they have/will, I don't get why people automatically assume that means they're bringing Ellsbury back. There are other options.
