    I would be spray painting asterisks all over the astros stadium if we had lost. Helpful when you change signs every inning and the buzzers are taken out of play.

    Boston probably saw the reaction to the deal and killed it

    Didn't Boston technically pull out of the deal?

    In high school, we were lucky enough to get to play a game at Kauffman Stadium. As we walked through the locker rooms my buddy saw a pair of batting gloves sitting out on a table. Being a shit head high schooler, he took them. Later we discovered the nameplate sewn onto the wristband was "Hinch".

    He deserved it.

    It's incredible to me that Boston would back out of an agreement based on a physical that wasn't failed, but rather suggested that somehow showed them he's a future reliever instead of a starter. What the hell does that even mean?

    I liked Pagan a lot but can’t help feel like he’s one of those guys who seems to have a career year in Tampa Bay then comes down to Earth after he leaves. I don’t quite know how Margot fits into the plan though.

    Don’t give a fuck what the public perception is. Glad the Sox are digging their heels in the sand.

    Would rather Henry have to pay more this year and get to watch Mookie as opposed to forced to give up the best player you have.

    They aren’t winning shit either way with Roenicke as manager.

    Which probably wouldn’t have happened had today’s news came out when MLB did the investigation of the Astros.

    Even you have to admit it looks like the Sox are trying to find some bullshit to back out now. They should have never agreed to it. It just hurt them even more in trying re-sign Betts imo.

    If they are backing out because of fan reaction they are bigger idiots than most think.

    And if Betts’s goals are to reset the market if the Sox offer is the largest I don’t think he will bat an eye. Now I don’t think that happens regardless if he is traded or not.

    But if they think the secondary piece is a RP they shouldn’t do the deal. Is leaking the medicals a BS move? Yeah but that is the organization unfortunately.

    What could they have seen in medicals to make them think he's a RP than a SP? He did8 fail it. "He has a tear we weren't aware of." is one thing. "Oh we now view him as a RP" is just weird.

    I kind of lost track of Scooter Gennet. I know he was hurt but I had no idea he was traded to the Giants and subsequently released. Looks like he never hit there but not many people do. No idea why no one signed him, he's had a really nice bat 2-3 years and missed time due to his groin.

    Wow, just looked it up and saw the same thing. I guess the main reason I forgot about him is that he made exactly zero lists for offseason FA. Some of the people that are on those lists in place of him should be considered a war crime. Unreal that no one has signed him yet, unless he is asking for something ungodly, but looks to me he just wants a one year show me deal.

    2017/2018
    Knocked in 50 homers, 189 Ribs, hit 300. Not all down to the park factor either which is what I thought, in 2018 he hit significantly better on the road. 2017 he was better at home.

    I just wasted 20 minutes looking at Scooter's numbers.

    What the fuck? Did the Twins charge some kind of tax here? Or is $10M a typo of some sort? There's no way the Dodgers are paying $10M + another prospect just to get the 67th pick in the draft.

    It’s part of his salary. Look at his contract, it’s all based on incentives. He has been great but they always fuck with him to keep the earnings down. Not saying he’s cy young but they kept millions from him.

    Sure, but was the $10M reported when the deal was originally agreed to? I don't remember that part, which is why I'm curious as to how it came up now.

    Why wouldn't they just keep Maeda and try to adjust his deal if it's not really saving them any money?

    I’m sure it’s more a tax/future tax situation than anything else. They “need” him to produce they have to pay him. They have to assume Betts is making 40 a year off the top.
