    i've done the same thing without any luck. i'd have never guessed i'd be excited to find out about a player to be named later. 3 players in this case.

    NBA Trade Deadline - Buyout Season Thread

    good point. i may be in denial but i'm starting to buy in that ainge pulled out. i guess don't know if it's true but someone on twitter posted that if the calls between teams have to be initiated before 3, the trade is good.i always thought it had to be sent to the league office

    Spring Training 2021

    There never seems to be any discussions on the impact of exceeding the luxury tax other than John Henry's money. The penalties of reduction of draft pool money and international signing money has a big impact on an organization that's trying to rebuild it's farm system.There's a reason even the...

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

    Expected to be 2nd highest payroll after Dodgers but ahead of Yankees. Paying $28 million this year for Price and Pedroia, still paying $2 million for Manny. Opening up the purse strings this year will cost draft picks and international signing money, you're just delaying the farm rebuild...

    Might as well start talking about 2021

    Wouldn't signing Springer cost an early 2nd round pick this year? i think if they go over the luxury tax this year, it would also cost a 2nd and a 5th round pick in 2022 and $1 million in international signing money. Is that correct?

    Thoughts about media types who don't have their own threads

    Who should start for this team in 2021?

    1. He'd be a placeholder to help us be more competitive while we develop future pitching. 2. Most of out talented pitching prospects either aren't MLB ready or will be pitching limited innings. He's wouldn't be stealing anyone's innings that deserve them 3. As Koufax said, if he pitches well he...
