    This just confirms what we all already knew. JBJ was a mistake since day 1.

    If the genius idea was to shop those prospects via JBJ, it was very expensive unless Bloom is seeing something on them we do not. Who knows? Probably one of them ends up being the next Soto lol

    Finally! Should have never happened to begin with. The prospect they got for him may not even amount to anything.

    Like I said before that not all minor leaguers are prospects, and I think Bloom just likes to get as many as he can, and hopes one turns out to be something good.

    He gave him a shot and it didn’t work out. I am among the few that didn’t mind this deal, as it was done for defensive purposes as well as prospects.

    As there was clearly no plan to hold him for next season, I’d rather see the GM admit this as opposed to clinging to a mistake. But the biggest downside is it leaves Duran with a stranglehold on CF until Kike returns…

    We pay $8M for the 2023 buy out, although it doesnt count on the lux tax line.

    The major harm was letting go Renfroe who has good enough defense and a hell of an arm BUT who can hit.

    The Red Sox have been Bloomed again. The curse of the Bloom is alive, and well.

    I agree, but some on here didn’t think Renfroe was good enough, or worth $6-7M even for a guy with 96 RBI. They were as wrong as Bloom was.

    Makes me sad. A lot of good memories of JBJ. That's life.
