The Sox won 92 games and made it to the ALCS last year with JD and his personal views. Simmons might not be peak Simmons anymore but his babip was low for his career last year and as noted above his defense was actually pretty damn good. If he does continue on his offensive downward trend you at least have solid defense. For low-ish money and few years he could be a decent bridge. The steamer projections for next year looks at least decent. (And yes I understand they are just projections)Basically anyone other than Andrelton Simmons.
It would be catastrophic to the team.
