    I agree with the general sentiment. I love Mookie but he's turned down every advance so far, including this past ST. Even after watching Harper and Machado sweat out the market, he still wants his...

    Weems was "the other catcher" trying to make his way to MLB with Swihart.

    Now that Travis Shaw has been non-tendered, I'd like to target him as a buy-low candidate. Historically he's an above average corner defender and has shown the ability to play 2B (not great). At...

    I was initially bummed out for Johnson when he was DFA but later read that it was a move deliberately calculated for him to return to the minors. They timed the action when most teams had their...

    So... what about sending Betts to MIL? There's no way they'd re-sign him but the team that almost made it back to the NLDS could use him to replace part of what they lost in Grandal and...

    Red Sox non-tendered 2B Marco Hernandez, and RP Josh Osich (waiver pickup). I'm a little surprised about Hernandez given the uncertainty at 2B.

    Some non-tender options that might be worth a...

    Mets, yes. Cubs, no. The others to add into the mix (IMO) are CWS, and maybe LAA or SDP.

    The folks that you're talking about are pretty unlikely. The team that acquires Betts is going to need to...

    I realize that this is kinda old news but this is literally the contract that I wanted the Red Sox to sign. Exact player. Exact terms.

    I guess it's nice to be able to get back into the international signing arena. Don't know much about him.

    Some video of him pitching on YouTube here. His actual pitching starts about 35 seconds...

    The fines are based on the average annual value (AAV) of the contract while the club was responsible for his contract. Oddly specific, I know. As a practical example, Pablo Sandoval. His...

    It's definitely not time for a full teardown. The team suffers primarily from being too heavy on top-end salaries but there's still quite a bit of talent there... and some that's around on the...

    Following up ^^

    Chatham (.243/.289/.314, 70AB/16K) had a fair AFL. You would hope to get a bit more at the plate in a league generally known for inflated offense. He was, however, making a...

    What's the motivation for "a desperate team like the Reds" to trade for one guaranteed year with Betts and give up top talent like that? I don't think that they have any at all. Betts' arb value is...

    Sorry, the way that I wrote that was misleading. I should have said "players with options." The Sox have an option for 2020 that would have become guaranteed at 340IP over 2018-19 and become a...

    Oh, well. JDM wanting to stay with a team that will be competitive has virtually guaranteed that the Sox will move Betts. While some "not my money" types may object, baseball is still a...

    I like what I'm hearing about the new FO. Bloom seems to have the backbone to do what's right rather than what's popular. If DD had had that resolve then we might be looking at Cole or Strasburg...

    What about JH's stated goal of getting under the CBT? If you like Betts then don't be short-sighted; getting under this year means that they reset their luxury tax penalties and CAN go over when he...

    The (apparent) difficulty of finding a successor is likely related to how much the PBO/GM is handcuffed by the financial decisions of DD. This is more evidence of why DD needed to go -- the industry...

    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...
