    Dipoto has had two stints working for the Red Sox already.


    More likely the Sox give the GM title to Romero and maybe hire a President...

    Now, the Pujols signing was reportedly 99% Arte Moreno, and this is where Dipoto's tenure as Angels GM starts to get interesting, for he quickly realized that he wasn't the main man when it came to personnel decisions. Arte negotiated with Albert, Arte wooed Albert, Arte included a 10-year personal services clause in an already ridiculously long contract, Arte gave him almost a quarter-billion dollars.

    A full blown rebuild is not happening in Boston.

    They will go halfway, as you call it, but that doesn't mean that both tasks of staying competitive and retooling the farm can't be accomplished.

    Speaking of Papi, it was nice to see him at the game.

    He looks good.

    So, you left your sense of humour at the bar?

    There are on;y 2 requirements for a GM

    1, Intimate baseball knowledge, and

    2. Ability to interact wothe basemall players/

    Know so,epme more qualified.

    We'll likely keep Sale, Price and Eovaldi, even if just to hope their trade stock rises the first half of 2020.

    I think we keep Bogey, Devers, Vaz, Barnes, Workman and ERod. JD and JBJ may be the only big names to go, besides all FAs departing this winter.

    No, that's not even close to a "full blown rebuild." It does beg the "halfway" question, as losing those two, resetting the tax and trying to win in 2020 seem to be at odds with each other, and if the idea is not to win, then why not try to trade anyone not under team control beyond 2020 or 2021? I get the need to drawn fans and keep interest high, but I do worry about the "halfway" philosophy.

    It worked when we traded Lester & Lackey for ML'ers not prospects. I called that "halfway" back then. I had wanted top prospects not Joe Kelly, Allen Craig and Cespedes (who morphed into Porcello). Maybe it will work again, but then again, we didn't win in 2018 because of Kelly and Porcello.
