    The way you are advocating seems *** backward to me. If you are overpaying guys to supplement your core than you cant afford to pay your core guys when the time comes.

    Which is the problem Boston has now. Canít afford to pay Betts because of Price, Sale and Martinez.

    Would you consider Alex Wood in that category? I think he's a realistic target. Granted his numbers this year are terrible but he's been dealing with injuries.

    Yup, can't be shelling out tons of money before you know what you got. I know I realize I'm a bit hypocritical in wanting Gerrit Cole though but that's because he's an ace and I expect this team to be competing in 2021. It's also one player as opposed to Boston throwing money at multiple names like Price, Sale, Porcello, Martinez.

    He's a tough one. I think he may fit into that category.

    I'm thinking Lance Lynn generally. He pitched really well this year, so maybe he is even too much to think about. I just don't think we'll be in on Cole, MadBum or Strausburg.
