    If Bloom did not go large for a SP'er, I doubt he does for a LF'er.

    I think he looks for a platoon type OF'er- maybe via trade. (JBJ & cash for Beni? LOL)

    Bloom has said he's looking for a RH'd bat.
    FWIW Bradley’s value matches up with Wil Myers at -12.8 on BTV. If San Diego included former Bloom acquisition RHRP Emilio Pagan (BTV value:0), it might make more sense…

    I'd do it, but why would SD?

    Mookie Betts is also like -65 on BTV. Of course, you're not allowed to trade him there.

    I have doubts KC would want Bradley, given they have the reigning Gold Glove CF in Michael Taylor.

    If the Sox plan to let Bradley play CF, they have a LHH option in Duran for LF, and could platoon him there with 35yo free agent Andrew McCutchen (.969 OPS vs LHP last year). And if Duran struggles, maybe McCutchen gets a bit more PT.

    There are other guys like Jordan Luplow and Darin Ruf who also crush LHP, but neither is FA right now...

    Considering the cash he is owed, is that value really unreasonable? Or the fact that he cannot be included in trades?

    Why not?

    They're the one team whose GM is less predictable than ours...

    True nuff.

    The rumours of Myers being traded go back years.

    Would the Dodgers take Connor Seabold for Mookie Betts?

    They must! It's a massive overpay for the Sox!

    Here's the billion-dollar answer to both the leftfielder and righty bat question -- warning: this only happens if owners agree to eliminate the competitive-balance tax altogether from the new CBA...

    ... the Red Sox' new leftfielder will be Xander Bogaerts, who will be extended, along with Raffy Devers, to reflect salaries commensurate with the new shortstop, Carlos Correa.

    (sorry, the posts about launching Bauer into outer space were so exciting that I punched myself in the head in the throws of passion)

    They might if they just wanted to dump lots and lots of salary, right?
