    Kraft One-Ups Brady’s Departure

    US government planes fly the PPE to China. Private planes fly it back to Massachusetts. It's the perfect public-private sector partnership.

    Tommy John for Severino

    Terrible trade idea. Tommy John is 76 years old.

    Alex Verdugo, new Red Sox star!

    Do we know how severe the beating was? Does that matter with regard to criminal charges? The police saw the video and know who shot it, right? Edit: IIRC, the news reports say the police report noted a bruised eye and facial swelling.

    Alex Verdugo, new Red Sox star!

    I assume Henry and Bloom have a lot more information about Verdugo's involvement in the 2015 incident, and his subsequent behavior, than we do. It's impossible for me to judge their decision-making without knowing what they know. Do any of us actually know what Verdugo did or didn't do? Even if...

    Alex Verdugo, new Red Sox star!

    The spring training assault happened four or five years ago. Hopefully, he's matured a bit since then.

    Alex Verdugo, new Red Sox star!

    I'd think the person witnessing the assault has to know the person being assaulted is a minor. If this is a case of a 20-year-old punching a 17-year-old, that might not be the case. In what way? Do we know who "him" is in this? Baldwin or Verdugo? I assume it's Verdugo because the victim...

    Alex Verdugo, new Red Sox star!

    Does it matter how old the two women who beat the 17-year-old were? Does it matter whether the player who filmed the beating knew how old they all were? Does it matter how severe the beating was?

    Alex Verdugo, new Red Sox star!

    Has anyone named Verdugo is the player who videoed the fight? How severe was the fight? Not defending Verdugo (and don’t want him in the team,) but what exactly were his actions?

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    Hope the Twins pull-out kills the deal. I’d rather keep Betts for a year and overpay Price rather than have Verdugo plus anyone the Dodgers might add. Screw the luxury tax. They’re the 3rd-richest team in baseball. Suck it up, play Mookie in 2020 and resign him as a free agent for whatever...

    Alex Verdugo, new Red Sox star!

    Has anyone read the police report referenced in the Quiroli and Sports Illustrated articles?

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    At least one prospect. Trading Betts+Price for Myers alone makes no sense. Price and Myers are roughly equal in (negative) value, so the Sox would be giving Mookie away for free. The Padres would have to include a top prospect like Luis Patino or Campusano plus one or two others.

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    Since Betts’s positive value and Price’s negative value are roughly the same, why not trade them together for nothing in return? Especially if the main point is to clear payroll?

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    Right. Has either team officially announced the trade yet?

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    Anyone else miss the days when you didn’t need to be an doctor or an MBA to evaluate baseball trades?
