    I’m not sure. He was lights out all season, then walked a couple guys and hit a batter in mop-up duty while we were down 6-1, giving up...

    Exit velocities of 110.2, 106.8, 104.2 mph (and uh, 74.5 on that game-winner) — his first, third and fifth hardest-hit balls of the season.

    Valdez has been the second best pitcher on the team so far, behind Barnes, according to opposing hitters’ wOBA (.185, just a notch...

    Cron’s a great stopgap target and I’m all for making deals with the Rockies with their front office in shambles. Márquez has slid a bit...

    Franchy definitely looks thinky up there. With Danny Santana coming soon it may be worth using his option just to allow him to work on...

    I get it, Scherzer’s videogamey to talk about and I’ll put a pin in it until July. My main points are that a) the Sox will need pitching...

    We’re also in a decent position to land Scherzer, if the Nats continue to underperform. He’s a 10-and-5 guy and can basically choose...

    Ottavino also figured to be eminently flippable at the deadline, if the projections were accurate and the Sox were indeed out of it. He...

    I’m happy he’s gotten the opportunity, and it’s definitely a nice situation for a guy many thought wouldn’t make the 26 coming out of...

    It’s still too early, but if the team keeps this up then we may be ahead of our projected contention window, especially if Whitlock can...

    A Rizzo deal would be fun, but he (and Brandon Belt) would be cash-expensive. Unless there’s several guys on our roster involved, a July...

    I think you’re right, though I also don’t see Bloom spending trade assets on a rental. I’m expecting a strong sellers’ market for arms...

    Not only unlucky, but he’s been equally improved against lefties as well as righties, who a lot of people thought he’d need a platoon...
