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

    Absolutely burn it, if he wasn't so selfish we wouldn't be in this position. On another topic I have a John Henry no: 12/420 jersey you might be interested in.

    Lou Merloni: Mookie asking price is 12 years, $420 million.

    By "manager": I meant GM, Chief of Baseball Ops, Head of Baseball Operations etc. By "doing us a solid": I meant he might make what appears to be a very one sided trade against his team which looks like it benefits his former team. By saying it has never happened, I mean that it had happened...

    Lou Merloni: Mookie asking price is 12 years, $420 million.

    Say the Red Sox do end up paying the full 12/420. We might only get five or six great years out of Mookie of course, but what if someone like Pedroia got hired to manage a team like the Marlins. Maybe he might do us a solid and help us out? Nah, that would never happen.

    Lou Merloni: Mookie asking price is 12 years, $420 million.

    I say you sign him to whatever he wants. Watch him play the best baseball of his life and if he starts to fall off a cliff or gets hurt, offer him a coaching gig. Profit.

    Who was the most disliked Red Sox player acquisition ever? AT THE TIME OF ACQUISITION

    If it does then I would like to nominate Brett Lillibridge and Zach Stewart for being the replacements for Youk. OP never mentioned anything about holding a reasonable position.

    Reserving Judgment... But What Did the Sox Do and How Bad Will They Get Hit?

    Fines and picks sure, but taking away the replay facility would be silly. I get the idea that the punishment should fit the crime, but that puts the Sox at a significant disadvantage in every game. Would be like if a team was found out to be adding a foreign substance or corking to their bats...

    Who will be the next manager?

    Could we see if David Price wants to be pitching coach, or coach in charge of CPAP or something too? Maybe if Sale starts struggling again we can make him coach in charge of reaching things on high shelves? Just seems a bit unfair that the Red Sox should be held accountable for bad decisions...

    MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred: ‘We Need To Make A Change To The Baseball’

    Maybe instead of robot umps, we could put in robot baserunners. Just like the lure in a greyhound race, you just adjust the speed to fit the baserunners ability. ie: Betts is a 7, Vazquez 1. Have the actual player use the controls to decide whether to steal, advance etc. No signs stolen...

    Sox owners want to be under cap in '20

    I'm hoping that the sudden need to reset the LT is to coincide with giving Mookie his deal next year and adding other pieces. I don't think anyone here would lose a large amount of sleep if the Sox shed payroll, provided it isn't at the expense of Mookie. I'm going to remain optimistic whilst...

    The JD Opt-Out: Just Do-it or Just Don't?

    I agree that this would be an absolute best case scenario but my guess would be that JD might be a bit more sceptical about his options coming off his last go at Free Agency.

    The JD Opt-Out: Just Do-it or Just Don't?

    Why? Do you believe that if JD opts out that he will return on less money?

    Free Agent Starting Pitchers and Boston

    But if we could, we could use the money in the offer that the top free agent pitcher would decline.

    All things being equal and they never are-where do you want Kawhi to go?

    Watch him sign for the Warriors for the minimum.

    Steven Wright suspended 80 games for PEDs

    Sorry for not being clear, I wasn't arguing that one was more heinous than the other, just that my personal bias was towards the domestic abuse side than the PED side. In my mind both are illegal for a reason, there's just one I have more of an issue with personally, for completely subjective...

    Steven Wright suspended 80 games for PEDs

    Great post. For me personally, due to personal experiences I have a very low tolerance for anyone that would do anything to harm their spouse or family. This usually results in me being firmly of the position that I would personally disapprove or think negatively towards one who has committed...

    Save money on any more pitchers, just get a whole heap of CPAP's. Make everyone into Josh Hader.

    2018 Red Sox World Champions Parade thread

    As they went past where I was standing I saw there were about six Police walking alongside the bullpen boat. I joked to my wife that it was to make Kimbrel feel at home. She hit me.
