    Grade the Red Sox trade deadline

    The Sox desperately need a left handed hitting 1B and another quality RP. They failed in securing either so I’d give Sox mgt an Incomplete grade. I understand the need to build farm system depth to create a contending team. However, besides Casas and Houck(Mayer can’t be traded) which other Sox...

    Trade deadline

    If accurate, Gallo trade has now become incredulous! How could Rangers agree to also fully pay remaining salary for both MLB players traded to Yankees, while receiving nothing else from Yankees??? https://nypost.com/2021/07/29/the-yankees-joey-gallo-trade-just-got-a-little-bit-better/

    Boston Red Sox 2021 Draft Class

    You make a valid point that no one really knows the ultimate impact of any drafted player. I don't. You're also correct that scouts will hopefully be able to more closely follow prospects next spring that leads to better picks. However, with the 2021 Red Sox success, what are the chances the Sox...

    Trade deadline

    Agree. The Yankees clearly have minor league depth. The challenge is after 4 minor league seasons (age 19 signing) or 5 seasons(age 18 signing) the player must be added to the MLB 40 man roster or exposed to Rule 5 draft. Yankees current depth is a reason how Sox adeptly nabbed Whitlock. As...

    Trade deadline

    This is mlb.com latest update of Yankees top prospects. Its dated July 25, 2021 and claims to have updates on Yankee prospects. It only doesn't included their recent draft picks. Smith ranked 14th and Duran 15th. Even if somehow they've become 6th and 8th ranked(middle infielders not even top...

    Trade deadline

    Not one of the Yankees top 12 prospects are included. Rarely does "quantity" vs "quality" in a trade lead to securing a future impact player. I'm more shocked that Gallo is still only making $2M/yr. He's been in MLB since 2015. Cashman is a genus if he gets a power hitting left-handed bat and...

    Boston Red Sox 2021 Draft Class

    As I stated on draft day, Sox blew it by not taking a calculated risk with selecting LSU SP Jaden Hill with 40th pick. He signed for under 40th pick slot value , which would have allowed Sox to over pay Hickey and others. If he fully recovers, Hill was projected at beginning of this year as one...

    7/15 ERod at the Toilet

    Cashman stated on YES that MLB, not Yankees, made the decision to cancel tonight’s game. Cashman stated MLB will also make decision about playing Friday Night. IMO, MLB needs to establish clear rules here because this will continue to occur through pennant race.

    2021 Draft

    Valid point on budget issues. With 8th pick, Rockies took a HS OF that wasn't ranked in top ten with possible agreement to pay him under slot to then cover over paying Hill.

    2021 Draft

    I'm no scout, but I'd have taken chance on Jaden Hill recovering from surgery, with 2nd pick. Second, McDonough looks interesting, but would have been there at 4th pick. I'd have taken another pitcher with 3rd pick, then McDonough with 4th pick. I believe these picks would have better fit in Sox...

    2021 Draft

    That's my assessment too, especially with Sox minor league system bereft of any top tier pitching and limited pitching depth.

    which Red Sox prospects are Rule 5 eligible, and required to be placed on 40 man roster, or exposed to MLB draft?
