    Can Bryant play 2B?
    If so, try to sign him and Duffy, and trade away Kimbrel and his contract for a decent catcher/prospect, and call it a day.

    I think they should have offered the QO to Rodon. If health risk is the concern, it would have only been for 1year, and at the very least they get the comp pick. I think once they exercised the...

    It’s so damned hard to gauge Moncada’s trade value right now. There is a lot of hype attached to Moncada’s name, but I feel he has not quite lived up to the billing. Especially in the post season.

    Ray is going to Seattle.

    I’d rather see them upgrade at 2B or SP than RF. I think RF is something we can look to upgrade during the season, if necessary. Look at how many outfield options were...

    If the Sox are afforded one big ticket free agent expenditure, what position is the biggest need?

    SP, RP, 2B or RF? Or other?

    Hopefully he can teach him that killer splitter. When Jose was on with that, he was unhittable.

    A bigger move I’d like to see is moving Kuechel (eat a chunk of salary), and make a move for a 1-3 range starter.

    Looks like he may have pitched into a bit of bad luck, as his peripheral stats were somewhat better. Either way, Detroit has the money to spend, and have not been shy about announcing they intend to...

    It is true that bad managers can win a World Series. It is also true that great managers may not win a World Series. But what you don’t see is bad managers winning 3 world series’.

    Every manager makes mistakes. Only certain ones are mocked by media buffoons with an axe to grind.

    Did TLR make some bad moves… sure he did. So did every other manager out there.

    Yep.
    TLR made Kimbrel pitch bad.
    TLR made Mercedez unable to adjust.
    TLR caused the whole pitching staff to collapse in the post season.

    In the post season, it is absolutely asinine to say if fell squarely on Rodon. That’s like saying it fell squarely on your guy with the $16 mil contract, above 5 era, who can’t mentally handle...
