    Grandal already hurt. We better have a good backup catcher. We may have already found our opening day DH.

    The lack of a mi or league season last year makes this so much more of a tossup. Add in the back story of Burger, and you never know how these guys are going to come out of the gate. Collins has...

    If nobody separates themselves from the group, I think Sheets or Collins may get a shot on opening day. Both hit LH to go up against what will probably be Bundy for Anaheim.

    As of right now, Iím going to go with a dark horse and say Sheets as a LH bat. If Vaughn rakes in ST, then it will be him, but any stumbles and I think they start him in the minors.

    I do think it...

    Missing on Tatis may be more about our scouting and player development than our FO. The Sox were lacking in those areas for decades, as illustrated by repeated weak farm systems and poor track...

    Correct. Tatis was a lottery ticket at a time when we should have been collecting them instead of giving them away. I think it should be noted though that SD knew something about Tatis that the...

    Sox did the same thing to a lesser degree with Eloy and Robert. Sox could have waited, as neither would have been eligible for FA for around 6 years, but they rolled the dice to get a discount. ...

    Every year they would have waited, his AAV would have sky rocketed, along with increased odds of Tatis testing free agency. Iím not saying I agree with the move, but that is probably their strategy...

    Cease actually had a 4.01 era last season, which is very respectable. I still donít understand using Cease in relief for game 2, to save Dunning for game 3 just to take him out after 3 batters.

    Iím not saying Tatis Jr isnít a very good player, but $340 mil is a lot for a player with less than 1 full year of MLB track record. The trade off that the Padres had to make was rolling the dice on...

    I think the Sox will also have flexibility at the deadline if they need to make a move. Hopefully taking on more of a contract, than giving up prospect capital.

    I see Kopech starting the season in the minors, getting stretched out and working on his command, in game situation. Actual game pitching is something he has not done in 2 years. Maybe a June/July...

    Yes, I believe youíre right. Guess that means weíll ultimately have to move Eloy to DH, and sign Colas next year. That should do the trick.

    I get the question marks. Many teams have them, and only a select few do not. But to project us as 4 games over .500 is pretty low.
