    Might as well start talking about 2021

    We need to clear like 4 guys off the 40 man, so maybe some fringe trades along the edges.

    Benintendi to Royals for Franchy Cordero, Mets RHP prospect Josh Winckowski, and 3 PTBNLs

    I guess I'm a bit confused about how both past payroll & current payroll are irrelevant to a determination of the Red Sox willingness to spend. But yeah, as others have mentioned, when you are paying $35m for David Price, Pedey & Manny not to play for you, it kinda messes with budgets in a...

    Benintendi to Royals for Franchy Cordero, Mets RHP prospect Josh Winckowski, and 3 PTBNLs

    Opening day payroll rank by year...maybe not the perfect metric, but the 1st one I found. 2020 Dodgers 2nd, Red Sox 3rd 2019 Red Sox 1st, Dodgers 4th 2018 Red Sox 1st, Dodgers 3rd 2017 Dodgers 1st, Red Sox 3rd 2016 Dodgers 1st, Red Sox 3rd 2015 Dodgers 1st, Red Sox 3rd 2014 Dodgers 1st, Red...

    2021 NFL: QB Carousel

    Betting line on Stafford to 49ers went from around +250 to negative a couple days ago. That's a good enough source for me that it is very likely to happen.

    2021 Pats: QB Options

    If BB is actually that interested in JG, I couldn't imagine him being ok with such a ridiculous amount of leaking on the subject.

    At least they only gave him 6 years.

    2021 Pats: Patricia to Rejoin Staff

    He just seems to have been hired to handle "a variety of roles" with no play calling responsibility or anything. I don't really see a football downside. So basically just comes down to how you feel about the 25 y/o allegations.

    "4-year and up multi-year contract" sounds redundant. Must be true.

    Might as well start talking about 2021

    It might have more to do with the current organizational philosophy & they really do have the 2nd or 3rd best offer on all these guys - they just refuse to extend past that point & at least 1 other team consistently does. Being in on everyone at your price allows you to get that person at your...

    2021 Pats: Possible Coaching Changes

    The corrolary is how did the Patriots do in the 3 years without McDaniels? Hard to find that data without an FO subscription, but looks like they had the 2nd best offense per DVOA ever in 2010 (+39.4%) & 9th best ever in 2011 (+32.6%). So probably ok. The 2007 Patriots had the best ever at...

    2021 Pats: Possible Coaching Changes

    Yeah, the reporting this morning was that Josh is not approachable in a human way due to his arrogance & that Lurie wasn't fully sold on him. Don't think you can let that slip & then go hire him.

    Who should start for this team in 2021?

    Seems like the best way to use that space under the luxury tax is the way smart NBA teams have used their cap space over the last couple years - taking on other team's bad contracts & getting 1st round picks attached (or in this case, prospects). It would be very Knicksian to use their cap...
