    With regard to Shaw, I'm going to take hope from the example of another corner infielder who had good, not great, minor league stats, was never a very highly-regarded prospect, and didn't break throug more »

    Yeah, I'm just talking about 2013 in hindsight...there's no way I'd do it today either.

    In response to JoeBrady1's comment: Two years ago, yes, I'd have done that trade.  That would be 3 years of Stanton for 6 of Bogaerts. Two years ago, I would have as well...which is saying a lot given more »

    No, I'm not proposing a trade. According to Gordon Edes, the Red Sox probably could have had Stanton a couple of years ago if they'd been willing to include Xander in the package, which they balked at more »

    For the record, S5, I did mean "high-minded" as a compliment. Thanks for the explanation. In Kopech's case it sounds fairly likely he just took a supplement without being aware of everything that was more »

    I basically agree with your thoughts, seanny. I certainly wouldn't complain about signing Davis, but I'd rather use our resources to fix the rotation and the bullpen. We have Hanley (for better or wor more »

    Keep in mind that not only does he come with clubhouse/chemistry issues, but he's no longer the pitcher he once was, either (ERA does not tell the whole story). That said, if we gave up little to noth more »

    I liked the Porcello trade (though not so much in hindsight, knowing Cespedes went on to have a career year), but the extension was premature and a case of Ben trying to be a bit too clever for his ow more »

    Since it's in our nature here to pat ourselves on the back when we're right, but rarely do we want to admit when we're wrong: I was thrilled about the Hanley signing this past offseason, while many of more »

    I took a lot of flack for insisting we trade him as soon as he looked healthy, which was apparently by opening day. I knew we'd get next to nothing back in return, except for a little salary relief as more »

    Some people here are pretty stingy about how they define an "ace," so we could theoretically add two shutdown bullpen arms and a really good starting pitcher under this scenario. Of course, we never s more »
