    But how many years of team control were they gaining at the time vs what they’re giving up now? They should expect a much lighter return than what they paid

    Did we get anywhere near that for 1 year of Betts?
    When you say it's gonna happen now
    When exactly do you mean?

    That was for 2 1/2 years of Soto. If they deal him now, they’re giving up one year…

    So roughy, 40% the return they should expect

    Probably a little more, because San Diego hopefully won’t make the Sox eat half of David Price’s deal…

    True, that was rough math. The point is the same either way. You're not getting anywhere near as much for 1 year of Soto as opposed to 2.5 years of Soto.

    I seriously doubt we'd give up just Mayer for Soto, even if they paid $10M or so.

    Someone like Mayer should never even be thought of for trading for 1 year of a guy, not unless you have ten Mayers.

    Or, if you have an extension framework worked out, which doesn't happen, anymore.

    BTW, I am not for trading Mayer for Soto. I was just saying it would not take the 3 prospects mentioned to get him. I doubt the Sox would offer him, anyway. They might give Dugo & Rafaela for him- maybe Yorke & Rafaela.

    Mayer was a top 5 prospect in all the game. Has anyone that highly regarded every been traded for 1 year or less of a player???

    No. It's crazy talk. But it is Talksox, after all.
    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.

    It doesn't matter if you have an extension of a framework worked out. The value of Mayer over the next 6 years is higher than Soto for 1 year.
