    Think Dombrowski cuts Swihart loose to make room for Pedroia? Didnít he surprise the world and keep him in that exact same scenario last year?
    True, but I think that was more about HRam and his contract and the rest was a smoke screen- perhaps to prevent a law suit.

    I doubt they trade Swihart to keep Pedey, because Pedey is too sketchy, but trading Swihart to give Chavis a look could happen. We also have Lin, Quiroz, Ockimey and maybe Marco Hernandez available as the 25th man.

    Swihart could be traded and might be. Not for much. If the Sox do need to trade a non- starting player, Chavis is the most likely candidate to get anything back.

    The HanRam release was going to happen regardless. (Cora publicly said it had to do with playing time.) Keeping Swihart didn’t avoid a lawsuit anymore than if the Sox had released him to keep Lin.

    Anything can happen in the next 5 months. But as of now, Swihart appears to have a roster spot. And possibly even a role...

    I'd rather have Pearce over Moreland for 2019, if I had to choose just one, despite Pearce being on the wrong side of a platoon.

    I don't think us having Moreland put any scare into JD and his contract negotiations.

    I liked the Moreland signing from the beginning.

    While it might not have put any scare into JD, IMO it did give Dombrowski the luxury of waiting JD out.

    Makes sense to me.

    I disagree. There was no luxury. We needed JD almost as much as he needed us. Moreland made no difference. There were 4-5 other good and cheap 1Bman on the market.

    Moreland was fine - dollar for dollar we had one of the more productive 1B positions in the league.

    Excluding Hanley, obviously.

    He certainly did better than most of the other 1B options.

    Contract / fWAR in 2018
    $144M/8 Hosmer -0.1
    $60M/3 Santana 1.9
    $16M/2 Alonso 0.7
    $13M/2 Moreland 0.6
    $8.3M/2 P Alvarez -0.2
    $6.5M Morrison -0.7
    $4M/1 M Adams 0.8
    $3.5M/1 Duda 0.0

    3B?
    $6.5M/1 Moustakas 2.4

    I'm sure glad we didn't go with Hosmer like a few here wanted.

    I was pushing hard for Moose and Squirrel...I mean Duda, which wouldn't have been all that great, unless Moose switched to 1B.

    Mountain Matt Adams is a free agent this year. Think he can be had for $4mill again?
