Let's talk about our Sox

#1 Unread postby Mike16v » Thu Dec 06, 2018 11:05 am

Not much left to do for 2019. Kelly is no doubt returning, and then I think we are done. Maybe kick the ol' tires on BP arms. Upgrading at C would be nice but I'm ok there I guess.

After next year doe.

You sign X or GTFO. Prolly gunna take ~25m a year depending on his 2019. He might hit 30HRs doe. If it's 7 years you get him for age 27-33 seasons. Elite.

Let Sale and Porcello walk. That leaves Price, E-Rod, Eovaldi. Looking at potential FAs....bleak. Go trade here (Snell would make me :cum: but prolly not possible).

If JD opts out, go for the prize in Arenado. He'll be 29 still and elite defensively. Fat kid would probably be better suited for 1B anyway.

The biggest key is trading for elite SP, which means our farm needs to not suck again this year.

Hub talking about how bad they will be after 2018, but there isn't much to do. Ya, JD might opt out but that's just a DH.

X contract is up but he will be 27. That's an easy pay.

Just need a Sale replacement.

His splits are lolbad. Usually for a guy like that it's 1000/875 which I am ok with.

He is a great defender so even if you discount his offense, still a superstar

See Beltre, Adrian
