    Re: The Red Sox Thread

    Would it be possible to add a brief explanation of what the link discusses? I'm not sure if this has ever been addressed. It would make the forum a better place.
    Do not fear, all we want to do is talk.

    Only words, and then your thoughts.

    The Red Sox knew Machado was stealing signs and the pitching coach didnít go out there to talk to Price before facing Puig because he had just struck out the previous batter and didnít want to interrupt the flow and momentum of the game but Puig got a hit and tied the game and now the pitching coach is mad even though it all worked out anyway.
    If they ask who was our star, give them 25 names, and if you forget our names, just tell them we were Yankees.

    Not a horrible signing unless his arm starts to fall off in Spring Training. You had to know someone was going to step up and pay him especially after his post-season. Upside is velocity. Downside is two Tommy John surgeries under his belt. My biggest worry is that he's going to uncork a fastball and his arm will still be attached to the ball when it crosses the plate. If he stays healthy, it's a good signing.

    My issue with Eovaldi isn't his health as much as it is a history of inconsistency, ala Ivan Nova & Michael Pineda. $68M is a lot of "stupid money".

    Or a smart move, if he continues to produce. Only time will tell.

    He might. That said, he's won 44 games in his career and pitched above 155 innings once in the major leagues. His performance last year was certainly well-timed.

    Carson Smith to a minor league deal was smart by the Sox. Was hoping the Yankees would steal him on a minor league deal. May amount to nothing but itís a no risk move with a solid potential reward.

    No question that it was well-timed. The optimistic take on Eovaldi from a Sox perspective is that he is a much improved pitcher since adding the cutter.

    I wouldn't count on Smith for anything. He's the Carl Pavano of the Red Sox, pitching just 23 innings in three years for them. He'll probably pull his shoulder out slamming his car door at spring training....

    DD is doing a lot of dumpster diving for pitching depth this offseason.
