    We wonít ever know all the logic that went into that trade, but itís not ridiculous think they wanted JBJ for some defense and liked Hamilton and Binelas as players they hoped to get for a player who was released one year earlier but played well enough to earn a significant raise.

    If Bloom wanted to build something of a farm system, trading MLB players at the suspected peak is going to happen. And if they had any designs on someone like Suzuki, the positions certainly made senseÖ
    I'm sure it made sense to Bloom and likely a few others, maybe yes men. He must have liked Binela and or Hamilton more than just about anyone else. He might have also thought or hoped JBJ would rebound and or Renfroe would regress, but many here felt he was going to be wrong on 3 fronts:

    1. More money for JBJ than Renfroe
    2. JBJ was not going to bounce back.
    3. The prospects were not promising enough to be worth it. (This could still change.)
    When you say it's gonna happen now
    When exactly do you mean?

    Is he still looking for the next Martin Perez- the 2022 version?
    Looking for posts in the offseason thread about Eovaldi. Here's one from moon.

    2. Correa (My top pick, but I seriously doubt we will be a final 3 bidder)

    5. Swanson (Outside chance, if we miss out on Bogey)
    6. Rodon (nope)
    9. Nimmo (nope)
    10. Contreras (I hope not, but if we aren't going to spend anywhere else, I'd rather get him than just Adrus, Conforto, Nate and Hill)
    11. Senga (possibility, but word is he has 5 & 6 year offers on the table)
    13. Bassitt (not likely, especially with loss of comp pick)
    15. Benintendi (I doubt it.)
    17. Manaea (probably not)
    21. Syndergaard (please no)
    23. Eovaldi (after Bogey, maybe our second most likely, although giving up the comp pick we'll get of he signs elsewhere is like a ding against signing him.)
    24. T Rogers (Could be our last gasp effort at a significant signing- along with Jansen)
    25. JD Martinez (nope)
    26. Vazquez (long shot)
    27. Jansen (see #24)
    30. Quintana (maybe a good choice due to short term)
    33. Profar (nope)
    37. Drury (nope)
    38. Stripling
    39. Chafin
    40. Segura
    41. Wacha (maybe?)
    42. Robertson
    43. Brantley
    44. Conforto
    47. J Turner
    48. Kluber
    50. Rucinski
    Others: Andrus, Belt, Carpenter, Cueto, A Diaz, Fujinami, Fulmer (I'd sign him), Gallo, Greinke, Kiermaier, Kimbrel, Longoria, Lugo, Mancini, Moore, Peterson, G Sanchez, Smyly

    That allows for more money for RF (Conforto or Gallo) and SP (Nate, Senga, Kluber, Wacha) and if we go light maybe bring Vaz back or trade for a RF/SP/SS/C.

    At least it'll look like they're trying.
    My first one. Yes I said Eovaldi or Kluber. But the point of this exercise is to disprove the idea that nobody wanted Eovaldi back.

    Maybe the Sox were interested in the reunion of JD with Betts...
    Some snark from me about JD signing.

    Of course, a Devers extension would put the cherry on top, and while I'm at it, sign Fulmer and DFA Brasier and maybe even Bell would think we should be better than 2022.
    moon still wants Nate!

    I would say this is one of the rare occasions where at least 90% of us are in agreement. We need Kluber or Eovaldi or Greinke or a trade. Bloom basically promised a starting pitcher. He laid it on pretty thick, actually, with the "leadership, upside and innings" stuff.

    No rumors on any of the other possibilities, either, for that matter.
