    Kevin Durant Sweepstakes

    Especially after the Nets hijinks in signing Irving in December of 2018 and actively derailing Boston's 2019 season. Followed by demanding a lottery pick to facilitate an Irving sign & trade after everything they'd already done to Boston. If Tsai was drowning and crying for help I'm not sure...

    Kevin Durant Sweepstakes

    If all Boston has to top is Tobias Harris and Tyrese Maxey they don't even need to offer Jaylen.

    Jarren Duran: Sunshine In His Eyes Can Make Us Cry

    They should have wasted the athleticism.

    Offseason Rumors/News

    It’s a great outcome for Boston, 35% max with 8% raises vs 30% max with 5% raises amounts to a pretty pile of cash. With the cap going up Boston is pretty well situated.

    Red Sox Trade Deadline 2022

    I guess the only question is what were teams demanding from Boston to take on half of Sale’s remaining cash?

    The White Sox have traded catcher Reese McGuire &PTBNL (or $$) to the Red Sox for Jake Diekman

    It would have been funnier if the organist played Blister in the Sun.

    Astros acquire Christian Vázquez for Enmanuel Valdez and Wilyer Abreu.

    At least he's not a slap hitter like Pham and McGuire.

    Vonleh has just had injury after injury. I'm rooting for him to have an NBA career.

    The White Sox have traded catcher Reese McGuire &PTBNL (or $$) to the Red Sox for Jake Diekman

    Hey, man, he just stopped by Walmart for some Reese's Pieces.

    Who's grabbing Reese in the Adopt a Prospect forum?

    Would you trade Jaylen+ for Durant?

    There’s going to be a big cap boost coming in a couple of years. If anything it makes it easier for Boston to lock up this core as the odds are pretty good that Jaylen qualifies for a designated veteran deal which would allow Boston to pay him a lot more money than anyone else can.

    2022 MLB Draft

    RF is always tricky because players need arm strength to make the throws, so you do sort of want guys that play that spot. Maybe Boston gets lucky, wins the draft lottery, and ends up with Crews as their RF of the future.

    2022 MLB Draft

    I'm hoping that Anthony shines. It would be nice to have a good corner OF prospect in the system .

    Speier: How Well has Bloom Done Trading for Prospects?

    Doubly unfair when you consider that the Dodgers traded for Graterol to put into the trade because they were literally only willing to part with surplus/non-prime talent. A sore armed reliever was the best that LA could get for Kenta Maeda, hence he went into the package. Much like Wong ended up...

    Would you trade Jaylen+ for Durant?

    Right, and no one would argue with the price of Brown and White as well as #1s in ‘24 and ‘26. It’s where people are looking to pack Smart and Grant Williams on the plane rather than DW.

    Would you trade Jaylen+ for Durant?

    Philly’s very real injury problem allowed Miami to reach the ECF. It didn’t benefit Boston all that much.

    Would you trade Jaylen+ for Durant?

    Except that if it’s the healthy non-Tatum players then Jayson will be logging another 3800 minute season and we just saw the end of that movie. I think everyone’s in agreement on Brown plus White. Where people depart is where White stays and healthy, important rotational bodies leave. Durant’s...

    Would you trade Jaylen+ for Durant?

    Brogdon is good for missing 25-30 games, White is generally more in the 15-20 range, and then you have Durant, who missed a third of the season last year (and that’s probably a good guide going forward given that he missed half a season the year before). By default you’re running Tatum into the...

    Would you trade Jaylen+ for Durant?

    He’s gone from being a very good defensive player to an averagish one. At 34 he’s not turning back the clock. Especially not with the mounting injuries. So, yeah, he’s a declining defender (see the conversations we’ve been having about LeBron for the last 3-4 years). Brown too often loses focus...

    Would you trade Jaylen+ for Durant?

    You really don’t want Tatum expending his energy chasing around smaller/quicker players the majority of the time. He’s a big wing, you’d rather he only takes the smaller guys on switches. If you’re trading for Durant and his rapidly declining D, you’re already making life on Tatum more...
