    JDM - it was great having you but buh bye. i had the BEST dh in the history of baseball for years at a much, much lower AAV. take your weirdo pre pitch ritual elsewhere.
    I couldn't agree more.

    Here's what I was able to do playing around on the trade simulator site:

    JD, Chavis & Duran to the White Sox for Kopech & Collins (C).

    Betts & Eovaldi to LAD for Gonsolin

    Price, Walden & $3M (maybe add JBJ) to SDP for Margot & Myers

    We'd be set up nicely to make a run at Betts for 2021. Lots of budget space and a good rotation with Sale, ERod, Gonsolin & Kopech. We'd be overpaying for Myers, who could play 1B or OF, but he costs way less than Price & Eovaldi.

    Think he can maintain that for 14 seasons? Or until age 40?

    I mean, Cody Ross had a higher OPS and OPS+ for Boston than Dustin Pedroia, but I think we all get why...

    I like my simple Eovaldi and Bradley to Texas for Odor and Mazara. Knocks off about $15mill towards luxury tax. Not a fan of Odor (who, ironically or not, stinks) but I think this deal works for both teams...

    JD's numbers are impressive regardless.

    Pretty amazing that the only year Papi led the league in SLG% and OPS was his final year at age 40!

    (It was also the only year he led in doubles.)

    Would you trade JBJ, Eovaldi & Walden for Familia, W Ramos & Marisnik?

    Speaking of the trade simulator, I think they have these Sox players rated too highly, so that's why I have involved them in a lot of trades (Or, I think they may be due for an decline year in 2020):

    Trade Value - Player
    17.7 Chavis
    12.1 Duran
    5.8 Walden

    They are. And he has a similar backstory to Papi in that neither seemed to be well-regarded early in their careers...

    As with every other Mookie trade idea before it, this is pretty underwhelming stuff. The Reds proposal doesn't completely suck, I guess, but the White Sox one looks pretty light...Basabe doesn't seem like nearly a good enough prospect to be a central piece in a deal like that.

    I actually like the White Sox package better, because Lopez is pretty good. I might prefer they replace Basabe (whom the Red Sox sent there as part of the Sale package) with a better prospect, like Nick Madrigal. Dunning is intriguing but I believe recently had TJ surgery.

    On the Reds deal, I would pass on Lodolo for Hunter Greene, as Greene is closer to MLB. Iím iffy on Winkler for the reasons they highlight. They are likely to want to include Jonathan India, since heís a redundancy, but I would want a third team to take him...

    Talk about weak: "the Reds have nine outfielders on their 40-man roster. But add them all up and you don't have one Mookie Betts." "He wouldn't fill Betts' shoes by any stretch" (seriously, these are the types of quotes most Boston fans keep saying, but I'm glad when writers proposing to trade him show the futility of it all).

    If Bloom just read them, he's now convinced. Ship him out!

    Funny. We have just 3 OF'er on our roster (not counting JD) and will likely trade 1 (JBJ) or 2 (Betts).

    Not really. It seems like a big step down for only a $6.5-ish reduction towards the luxury tax...

    How about... (Lux tax $)?

    Betts ($28M/1)
    Eovaldi ($17M x 3)
    Chavis & Walden

    for
    Syndergaard ($10M + last arb)
    Familia ($10M x 2)
    Jed Lowrie ($10M x 1)
