    Red Sox close to deal with Kevin Pillar

    Does this maybe mean JBJ is being traded?

    We have had good luck with Kevin _illars in the past, so I like this.

    I was hoping for Puig, but this is a solid signing. Whole starting OF is left handed and I don't want to see any JD in OF.

    With Puello coming in and Pillar, it makes you wonder if JBJ is next out of town

    Puello is Gorkys 2.0. He’s on an MiLB contract...

    Yes because Kevin Pillar and his robust .766 OPS against LHP will keep those southpaws honest...

    Better than a Benintendi, too. But not Verdugo.

    Pillar’s a platoon with JBJ. But really all he does is bring maybe slightly improved offense while maintaining elite defense...

    I sure hope so. Bradley has proved what he can do with a bat in his hands here.....and what he can't do. Lets see if we can get a bag of used golf balls for him.

    He's owed $11M. Maybe we find a team looking to save some money and had a decent pitcher making $12-18M a year. We'd still be significantly under the lux tax, but we'd be much better with our rotation and maybe close to the same in CF with Pillar/Puello vs JBJ.

    Love it. Pillar is a great CFer and can still hit for power.

    He’ll be half the price of JBJ and almost the same player. Good signing. He gets hot from time to time too.
