    Trade deadline

    I've said to friends that I wouldn't be shocked to see us go all in on a package with the Cubs for Rizzo, Bryant, and Kimbrel. A one-stop shop that fills most of our needs. I originally thought a package including Dalbec and Downs, but neither of them are good enough to even get us rentals...

    Mookie Betts 2020 FA Watch

    A co-worker is friendly with a member of the Mariners ... he told my friend about the suspension of play before it was on the news ... he also said that they wouldn't be getting paid. I can't imagine that the PA would allow that to happen, but I don't know. Don't teams have insurance for...

    Mookie Betts 2020 FA Watch

    I asked this on Facebook earlier, but figured I'd ask here as well. If MLB suspends the whole season and we re-sign Mookie, will he (technically) have a chance to play his entire career with the Sox? Just trying to find positives in the suspension of games and the loss of Mookie.

    So, LAD don't want Graterol either? disregard, asked and answered above

    Betts/Price to LA for Alex Verdugo, Jeter Downs, and Connor Wong

    My original hope was Verdugo, Gray, and Ruiz ... winding up with Verdugo, Downs, and a different catching prospect in Wong feels pretty good to me. I wish there wasn't the baggage of the assault stuff with Verdugo, but I also wasn't there and (unlike some here) I'm not going to burn him at the...

    Ron Roenicke named interim manager

    Roenicke this year with 'Tek (hopefully) as the bench coach being groomed for next season. I can easily live with this, especially with all of the other drama we've had this offseason. Just wish they had been able to wrap it up sooner.

    Alex Verdugo, new Red Sox star!

    A. Why would you want to watch a video of someone being sexually/physically assaulted? B. That's sad, but a very common occurrence nowadays.

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

    Just meant that two other deals would need to be cancelled and players coming to us being swapped.

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

    Dodgers extended Muncy today which puts them slightly over the threshold. If they have to keep Pederson after his arbitration, they'll be looking to shed more money. Perhaps they send Pederson to us instead of Verdugo and send us Maeda? If so, I'd hope that a prospect (Gray/Ruiz?) is also...

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

    Maybe we're getting Rocco Baldelli to fill the manager spot

    Sox talking Mookie trade with Dodgers, Padres - News & Discussion

    That's fine, but I'm not signing an extension. I intend to test the market. My hopes are not high.

    Is he saying who is or when it will be done?

    Sox talking Mookie trade with Dodgers, Padres - News & Discussion

    Well, in fairness, that one has us paying at least half of Price's contract. They seem to be higher on Verdugo than many on this board, which isn't surprising. It's normal to overvalue our prospects while undervaluing theirs.

    Sox talking Mookie trade with Dodgers, Padres - News & Discussion

    Before sending papers to the commissioner's office, do the Sox try one more time to extend Betts? - "Mookie, we have a trade in place for you. We're getting a solid return, but would rather have you play your entire career with us. To that end, we'd like to offer you $xxx/xx years." - If he...

    Sox talking Mookie trade with Dodgers, Padres - News & Discussion

    Would Betts for Verdugo, Gray, and Ruiz be possible? People seem to be much higher on Gonsolin than I am. I'll admit I've only read a little about him but control issues seem to be a big part of the story. Randy Johnson had solid velocity and control issues and turned out pretty good, but I'm...

    Sox talking Mookie trade with Dodgers, Padres - News & Discussion

    Oh, I know that. Just saying I remember people complaining about Steinbrenner breaking new ground in salaries and how it would affect everyone else. $1M per year??? Is he insane??? etc. Now we get excited that we got Moreland back for "only" $3M ... lol

    Sox talking Mookie trade with Dodgers, Padres - News & Discussion

    I, like many, just assume he's going to be traded. As such, I'm looking for the best package we can get and hope that we're aggressive in our attempt to re-sign him via free agency. Don't think anyone is worth $40M per year, but I'm also old enough to remember the Dave Winfield signing and how...

    Sox talking Mookie trade with Dodgers, Padres - News & Discussion

    With Marte going to the dbacks, I wonder if that accelerates anything in their pursuit of Betts.
