Their window should be wide open next year & they have plenty of money to spend this off season.What does Verlander get you for that money though? A wild card play-in victory instead of missing the playoffs altogether?
I’m not a Chaim hater by any means, but this team has more holes than just “starter” and they’re a long ways away from being a true contender.
By the time Boston’s next wave of young guys are ready, Verlander is probably retired. His timeline does not at all match up with the organizational timeline of 3-4 years away.
I'm glad they didn't do it, but it's not a crazy thing to consider.
