    If If he sticks around, it will be as a multi-inning reliever.

    Xander Bogaerts has opted out of his contract

    He's been SIGNIFICANTLY healthier than both Nomar and Valentin

    How Many of the Red Sox Managers of Your Lifetime do you have a Visceral Hatred for?

    Hate is a very strong word to apply to a baseball manager. But my "strong dislike" list, after 55+ years of fandom, goes like this: Zimmer, Valentine, Hobson, McNamara, Little

    McAdam: Red Sox owners have met with Xander Bogaerts more than once in recent weeks to kickstart contract negotiations.

    Minor quibble: I've never heard that the Yankees ever asked Jeter to consider a position change. I'm certain they didn't when A-Rod was acquired.

    McAdam: Red Sox owners have met with Xander Bogaerts more than once in recent weeks to kickstart contract negotiations.

    If that's the case, they should be thinking about trading Devers by the deadline next summer.

    Mookie details Boston exit

    So true. My guess (and it's only that) is that, absent COVID, Mookie would have played 2020 without a contract and likely have signed a larger deal than L.A. gave him. But given the circumstances and the uncertainty, he made the right decision.

    Yankees must win for Red Sox to get passion again!

    Not in any of our lifetimes, at least

    McAdam: Red Sox owners have met with Xander Bogaerts more than once in recent weeks to kickstart contract negotiations.

    Then maybe it will be someone else. But Swanson's headed for a $30 million-plus AAV, and Atlanta's strategy is clearly not to pay top dollar.

    McAdam: Red Sox owners have met with Xander Bogaerts more than once in recent weeks to kickstart contract negotiations.

    Yorke's bat will determine his role. He's likely never going to be a plus defender, and could profile best as a good-hitting utility guy. He also could be traded, but I doubt he'd be the centerpiece of a trade for someone like Alcantara or Cease.

    McAdam: Red Sox owners have met with Xander Bogaerts more than once in recent weeks to kickstart contract negotiations.

    The Braves have a low-cost replacement for Swanson (Grissom) in place already. No one thought they'd let Freeman leave either.

    What does 2023 look like?

    Should have included Koss on your IF list. He'll probably be Worcester's starting SS in April

    Who plays right field for the Sox in 2023?

    He'll get at least two years at $18 million plus

    Running up that Hill....

    Agree completely. I think they should approach Milwaukee about a trade for Woodruff or even (dreaming) Burnes. Brewers aren't going to be able to afford both going forward.

    What does 2023 look like?

    Agree, and you could say exactly the same thing about Christian Arroyo.

    Who plays right field for the Sox in 2023?

    I think Conforto is a strong option. He's a guy with power and plate discipline, two things this lineup sorely needs, and he's an excellent defender. There's enough uncertainty that he shouldn't cost a fortune, and he won't cost them FA compensation.

    Red Sox youth

    Yes, very optimistic. Could easily add several other names to the list. Obviously not all will work out, which is why you need organizational depth, which Bloom is building.

    What does 2023 look like?

    Given the Devers/Xander situation, it's hard to see the Sox paying what Judge wants.

    Triston Casas promoted, Bobby Dalbec demoted

    I'd be surprised if Castellanos is on the MLB team. They'll likely bring Arroyo back (arb-eligible)

    Triston Casas promoted, Bobby Dalbec demoted

    Casas would have lost some ABs to Dalbec otherwise. This is the smart move.
