    1219641491477487618

    Well, I'm not exactly happy but this is probably a positive for the Red Sox payroll situation. Pedroia may not have an alternative but to retire. I feel bad for him... but...

    Yay, such a great offseason of depth moves. I was a bit surprised at the Lakins move, though. Clearly Bloom has no attachment to the farm system.

    They could continue to overspend if the owner wanted to keep pouring his own money into the team... but he doesn't. Overrunning the CBT as they have was one of the primary reasons that Dombrowski...

    I've been wondering if the resolution of Betts' arb case could accelerate a deal. It'd be a difficult position for any team acquiring the superstar to oppose him in the arb process (no...

    Oh, there's no question that they couldn't do the deal and stay under the luxury tax for 2020. As I mentioned, it'd put them $8-9M over the CBT for the current (2020) season. But they'd have $60M...

    You make unsubstantiated statements like this A LOT. You're wrong. If the exact deal suggested took place (Betts/Price for Pederson, etc) then the Dodgers would only be about $8-9M over the CBT...

    Um, no. That's ridiculous. Seems like you're blinded by the rivalry. Cora appropriately lost his job and I expect that MLB will give him a ban of some sort -- at least a year and I won't be...

    Too bad for Travis but he seems like a AAAA guy, mostly org filler. He'd be beaten out by Cassas soon enough.

    It's the accumulated payroll over the course of the year. I forget the exact dates that matter but the salary is prorated against certain dates that represent "the season" -- for argument's sake...

    Of interest because potential Lindor suitors are also rumored to have interest in Betts and/or Price so we may see movement before the end of the year.

    Hm... is Bloom filling the roster while shooting pics for 'People of Walmart'? Obviously just organizational depth but that is, in some sense, a positive. These are the kinds of moves that DD often...

    @PPM: probably had Smoak in the right ballpark (figuratively). I probably still have a slight preference for Shaw given that he's a bit more versatile in the field.

    I'd be thrilled with that kind of return for Betts, but the USA Today article that I read suggests that you might be conflating a few different things. Seager has been offered to both BOS and CLE...

    Honestly, the trades look pretty fair to me. I think that the return on Price might be a bit light in the current market but might not be far off if the goal is a straight salary dump. I'd probably...

    Red Sox picked up 2B Jonathan Arauz in the Rule V draft from Houston. Doesn't hit much but pretty steady in the field it appears. Less than 30 games played above A-ball in 5yrs but he started at...
