    Tanner was the racist shortstop for the Bad News Bears. But we all loved him when he said this: "Hey Yankees... you can take your apology and your trophy and shove 'em straight up your ass!"

    So should the Red Sox sign Tanner Roark?

    Also, "Tanner" > "Tanyon" for baseball names...

    And he will be even more of a DH by then.

    Hasn't happened yet. It was 'expected some time in mid-November'. Maybe they have to drag Chris there kicking and screaming...

    To me, the test results are bigger news than the JD opt out- opt in choice.

    From today's MLB Trade Rumors chat with columnist Steve Adams:
    Sox Salary Dump
    2:57
    Sox eat 30 million of Price and 15 million of Eovaldi. Is that enough to find a sucker?
    Steve Adams
    2:58
    That'd leave Price with three years and $66MM remaining on his contract. Eovaldi with 3/39. Neither pitcher would get that on the open market coming off the seasons/injuries they just had.

    I agree. But I think we also have to be prepared for something wishy-washy on the test results, which will mean we have to wait until actual games are played to evaluate him.

    This article projects the Sox protect Dalbec, Chatham, Bazardo, Wilson and Aybar (Ockimey is listed as possible.)

    My guess is we are active drafting players from other teams... like SD.

    Basically same guys noted on the most recent SoxProspects podcast.

    I don’t see a reason to worry about Ockimey getting selected tho.

    If the Sox protect 6 players, they cannot make a selection. They might leave spot open if there is a player Bloom likes.

    No one wanted Ockimey last year. He did improve a bit this year by taking a lot more walks and showed more power (aided by the Manfred Missile), but I am not so sure how many team want him on the MLB roster all season. Although they could select him and work something out...
