(Hell, even JD's post May.)

    I really liked Scwarber, and was okay with trading JD (plus cash) to make room for him, but I'm not sure the money we'd have to have paid the team taking JD plus the Schwarber contract would have been worth the longer term investment.

    I seem to recall you being critical of posters wanting him back, but forgive me, if I'm wrong. I'm pretty sure you said something about posters wanting to "sign Schwarber for life."
    Someone on here during a game thread during the postseason said that Flintstone Schwaber should be given a lifetime contract. I remember it well, and commented about it at the time that I thought that was way overboard just like the ovation he got for making a routine play at 1B.

    I will say that if the plan is to reset after 2024, and going over by a lot is okay in 2023, then these type of 1 year deals might be workable. (Yes, not at the expense of adding better pitching.)

    Piling up comp picks would be nice, too.
    If JD is offered a QO, there is no way in Hell that he's turning it down.

    Ahhh, I remember the specifics, now. Yes.

    BTW, for all we know, this contract he just signed might be a lifetime contract.

    He might even fall down with a heart attack.

    Sounds like some in-game joking or hyperbole to me.
    Championships since purchase by John Henry group: Red Sox 4 Yankees 1

    The Red Sox are 8-1 in their last 9 postseason games against the Yankees.

    I know people get carried away on game threads, so I’m not so sure how it was meant.

    Maybe last night was the beginning of his contract run.
