I don't think Xander is a Boras client. Could be wrong, but I believe he's represented by his brother.

It was Boras as of November, so unless he's switched since....

Unfortunately, he is a Boras client. Boras talked about Andrus as a comp for signing him long term this past offseason.

BTW, there are 4 games in this series, and I think Kelly is starting Weds.

Red Sox placed OF Jackie Bradley, Jr. on the paternity leave list.
Bradley can remain on the paternity leave list for 24-to-72 hours. Rusney Castillo will replace him on the active roster.

Per Peter Abraham

I'm surprised Bentz didn't get the call ahead of Rusney

Rusney: .264/.304/.383 /.688

Bentz: .324/.370/.441/.811

Him and JBJ are really grilling at the plate. Writers thought he wouldn't be anything this year and doing really well Gold Glove type

Gotta keep those arms healthy and fresh for October? With the way the offense has been hitting may as well avoid overusing guys. Most of this is speaking from the experience of Fredi Gonzalez as the Braves manager wearing out Kimbrel and Venters a couple of years ago to where they broke down in the playoffs and Venters actually physically broke down for good.

Are you freaking kidding? Mookie goes deep again. That's five homers in his last seven at-bats.

Jo"K"e lly should join Buchholololz in a demotion to the bullpen or better yet, another organization and go suck consistently there with your rare "teaser" starts that somehow continue to fool people (suckers) in tagging the word "potential" to your names to keep you employed in a major league rotation.

Saying Joe Kelly has potential doesn't mean he's fooling us. I've personally said that, and I still agree with it. He has the potential to be a damn good pitcher, he just needs to put it all together on a consistent basis.

Relax it's just one game. Yes his command is not there I'm not ready to jump bridge

I just wanted to come in and say we need to take a second and appreciate what we are seeing. My god this offense is just relentless. And watching X, JBJ and Mookie playing at a high level this season has been really fun to watch. Mind you Ortiz is CRUSHING it. Win or lose this game this start to the Sox season has been a fun one

And I'll never say a bad word about this rotation again because they'll prove it consistently on the mound for me. Weed out the inconsistent oft injured crap in Buchholz and Kelly and plant a stud in that 2 hole.

Unfortunately, I don't think it's just one game. Kelly showed flashes last year and in ST but now that the games count on a team with a shot? Essentially 5 starts and he gave up more runs that IP in 3 of them (I'm not counting the 0.2IP start that preceded his DL). The other two were the no hitter attempt coming back from the DL and a 5 inning start vs BAL in which he managed to yield only 2 runs despite 5BB.

Several numbers are the same for him as a SP vs RP but there's one significant change: k/bb. As a SP he has 6.4k/9 and 3.7bb/9 for a 1.75k/bb. By contrast the numbers as a RP are 8.4k/9, 2.4bb/9, 3.5k/bb. The caution in this comparison is that the RP innings are only about 1/8th the SP numbers and came relatively early in his career. It seems, though, that he's less likely to overthrow and lose command going one inning at a time and we could use another power arm back there.

(I realize that he's gone to PAW already but I'm hoping he returns long term as a BP arm).

Chris Young has quietly been very good, with the bat at least. I'm not a huge fan of him in CF, though.

Tommy Layne again. Farrell keeps going to this reliever that gets the game out of control.

ALso Clay looks like crap in relief. He can't buy any strikeouts.

Letting Hill go for $6M while paying Clay Buttheadz twice as much is proving to be a mistake. E-Rod is going to have to pitch his *** off now if they don't do anything.

We're pretty much the 2015 Blue Jays. Great offence, probably better, but no pitching. Hit your way all the way to the post season if you want, but if you don't have pitching and defence in the playoffs you're not winning anything.

When this rotation is even slightly off, it's really bad. No middle ground at all. Either great, or horrendous.

Ortiz homers while I write this, lol.

Aaaaaaaand Porcello serves up another hanger to lose the lead he just got handed.

I tell yah, a million dollar offence with a 10 cent pitching staff.

If it cost you one of (Benintendi/Moncada) + one of (Devers/Swihart) + fillers for Jose Fernandez + fillers. Would you do it? With that being the basis of the trade?

Or Devers and Swihart for Quintana?

I would do either of those deals. The Fernandez one, maybe contingent on an extension, but that would never fly with Boras.

Please, let's not get started with the Jose Fernandez stuff. Well beyond the unlikelihood of matching up, the Marlins have a DISincentive to trade Jose Fernandez in the form of Stanton's opt-out. The only way around that would be to include someone like EdRo as a potential replacement with more controllable years. Short of something like that, dealing Fernandez likely means the departure of Stanton as well.

Years of control are the key to any pitching acquisitions as this young team (offence) is built to win now and for the next 5 years.

To Boston:
SP Sonny Gray
RP Sean Doolittle

To Oakland:
3B Rafael Devers
SP Anderson Espinoza
OF Andrew Benintendi
SP Joe Kelly
RP Pat Light

Bada bing bada boom, coolest guys in the room for the next 3 years guaranteed with Moncada & Swihart still in your back pocket and 3 more drafts years to reload.

L Price
R Gray
L Rodriguez
R Porcello
R Wright

R Kimbrel
L Doolittle
R Smith (2017 beyond)
