    Just to clarify, his actual 2021 salary is $6.6Mil, but the tax hit is $5Mil. It was 2 years for $10Mil, his 2020 salary was $3.4Mil.

    I'm thinking that once Kluber signs, all the dominoes start to fall.

    He may not be the very next big signing.

    God I hope not.

    It took the guy five weeks just to get on a mound and throw a few pitches. Think he is going to mull through 15-20 offers faster than that?

    This whole offseason hasnít been enlightening. MLB Hot stove used to be great. Then again, lots of things that used to be great arenít anymore. Sign of the times I guess

    Maybe we just need to reset our clocks and start thinking of Hot Stove as being January and February not December and early January.

    What are the chance we make the playoffs, if we add these players?

    SP: Odorizzi
    SP: Kluber
    RP: Hand
    2B/OF: E Hernandez
    4thOF: Marisnik
    Trade Beni for RP Lopez

    If you get good health from Odorizzi/Kluber/Sale/Erod? 60/40

    I think this team will look more like a 25/75 chance of making the playoffs. The offense will carry this team. If the bullpen can be average and the starting pitching isn't a disaster, they'll be in contention in mid September.

    If the season were starting tomorrow it would be a 5/95 chance at making the playoffs.

    What if we added Ozuna instead of Marisnik?

    1. Bogey SS
    2. Verdugo CF
    3. Ozuna LF
    4. Devers 3B
    5. JD DH
    6. Dalbec 1B
    7. Renfroe RF
    8. Vaz C
    9. Hernandez 2B

    Bench: Plawecki, Arroyo, Chavis

    SP: Sale, Eovaldi, ERod, Odorizzi, Kluber, Pivetta
    RP: Hand, Lopez, Barnes, Brasier, DHern, Houck, Taylor, Brice, Whitlock

    Maybe 70/30, but only because of the question marks in the rotation. If I knew ERod would be healthy, I'd mark them in as a WC team.

    What is the fascination with Jake Marisnick? He topped a .700 OPS one time in his career and needed to cheat to do it. The Sox would be better off with Albert Almora or Kevin Pillar...
