    Isn't the $200M/8yr offer old news? I mean that they offered it a couple of years ago or so. Betts is definitely taking the same business like approach that the FO takes and I don't blame him for...

    Seriously, no thoughts at all?

    Scenario 1: Trade Mookie
    Not the most palatable option but Betts is pretty steadfast about going to the FA market after next year. The risk is pretty large that...

    Eh, I guess. Sometimes cheap things are cheap because they're not very valuable. I usually associated "buy low" with a bounce-back candidate which is why I questioned it. I think that Smoak had a...

    Starting from the premise that you can do that deal, there's nothing here that I really dislike. The possibility of Syndergaard for two years at a reasonable rate makes a lot of things work.

    This is pretty much what I expected. For all the local talk that JDM was likely to stay in BOS, Boras has already cranked up the hype machine. Seems very unlikely Martinez doesn't opt-out.

    So there's the situation. The Red Sox have a goal of getting under the CBT for 2020 and about $30M to shave from payroll. Despite some hefty dead-weight contracts coming off the...

    Well, FWIW, I pretty much always take the position of trying to find a way to build a roster that respects the CBT. It ticks off plenty of people in this forum but I tend to disagree with any "not...

    Short version: Dombrowski prioritized keeping the WS team together with the assumption that they would just keep rolling and he was very, very wrong. The rotation that did not miss many planned...

    I agree, though the luxury tax position makes revitalizing this team pretty difficult. They may need to make a hard decision on one of the younger guys.

    Popular does not mean correct. Even if I wrote the contract myself, that would not negate what I said: DD committed $46M/yr to two pitchers with health questions when their deals were signed and...

    Echoing SF85, it is more common than you'd think. Even the very-young Cubs WS winner dropped off by 11 games. Granted, that's a lot better than the current Red Sox.
