One of the most important parts of building a successful franchise is to make some key trades along the way. Nothing gets your future dynasty
The MLB is loaded with young talent heading into the 2020 season. Now that MLB The Show 20 has implemented real-life prospects, another element has been added to the franchise team selection process.
Yes the Red Sox are still discussing a trade involving Wil Myers, even with Mookie Betts already gone. The trade however is not based around bringing Myers to Boston. Cal Quantrill is the “centerpiece” of the trade.
Bobby Dalbec enters 2020 as the Red Sox third-ranked prospect behind newly acquired 2B/SS Jeter Downs and 19-year-old 1B Tristan Casas. He is however the most intriguing Red Sox prospect in Spring Training because he is expected to make his MLB debut at some point in this upcoming season.
C.J. Chatham is someone to keep an eye on this Spring Training. At 25-years-old, Chatham is a seasoned middle infielder that could provide value right away. Boston drafted Chatham in the second round of the 2016 draft. I could see Chatham playing a similar role as Brock Holt did for so many years.
The MLB has made a rule change that has expanded number of players on a team from 25 to 26. Here is a look at the probable 2020 Opening Day Roster.
There is a perception around Mookie Betts – that he did not want to be in Boston, which is not true. Mookie recognized that he is a generational talent and that he deserves to be paid a record amount of money.
The Red Sox are comfortably under the luxury tax, here is how they should spend their remaining funds:
Overall, these players could help make the 2020 season a little less miserable. They also could all help rebuild the Red Sox farm system is they can produce enough to be worthy of a trade. These one-year deals could really make next season much more enjoyable.
I reminded baseball ops that we are focused on competitiveness over the next 5 years over and above resetting to which they said, ‘That’s exactly how we’ve been approaching it.’
The question is whether that means he is staying in Boston now that they have reached an agreement. There is no solid yes or no answer, but I believe this is a step in the right direction.
The White Sox have refused to be outworked this off-season, making a splash seemingly every week. Thursday they announced that they have signed a six-year, $50M contract with prospect Luis Robert.
One of the biggest stories in baseball is whether Mookie Betts will be wearing a Red Sox uniform on Opening Day. As the offseason continues to unfold,
The Chicago White Sox have just added Dallas Keuchel to a promising rotation. The deal is three-years, $55.5M according to Jeff Passan. Keuchel posted an
Gerrit Cole will face-off against the Nationals on Tuesday night at Minute Made Park. He will likely oppose 3-Time Cy Young winner Max Scherzer in
The next Red Sox GM will have his hands full with the amount of issues the Red Sox face heading into the 2020 season. It seems as though nobody even wants the job, which I understand.
Anibal Sanchez took the ball game one for the Nationals and did not disappoint. While Schezer (13 IP in Postseason) and Strasburg (15 IP in Postseason) will prepare for Games Two and Three respectively,
Cole is far and away the most interesting player in the free agent class. Typically, free agent pitching acquisitions have been a let down. These so called aces get paid for their production in their prime, then lose a step with once their velocity regresses.
The New York Mets took all the headlines Sunday afternoon by trading for All-Star Marcus Stroman. Everyone around the league expected the Stro-Show to take his HDMH trademark to another location, but the Mets were not on anyone’s radar.
Dave Dombrowski came out of left field on Thursday with a steaming hot take, saying the Red Sox do not have a lot of needs.
This player is coming off a career year and was named to his first All-Star game in 2018. During his last full season on the mound this player went 7-1 with a 0.53 ERA in 55 IP. He had 112 Ks to only 19 BBs and
The Red Sox have under performed this year. It’s been a frustrating first half of 2019. What makes this frustrating is that this same group minus Craig Kimbrel and Joe Kelly won 108 regular season games and rolled through the playoffs on their way to a World Series title a year ago.
Vasquez however, based on positional scarcity, should have been an absolute lock a reserve catcher in the American League All-Star Game.
