I understand a lot of people will scoff at this, but enough people have responded positively on the game thread I thought I would see how it would do on the main board. This team as currently constructed is a good team, but not in the same league as the Astros, Indians or the Yankees. They very well could end up winning the wildcard over the next few years, but barring a stroke of luck (injuries to the Yankees) they are unlikely to compete for the division for awhile. I feel it would be better if DD acknowledge the weakness's of this team and did a rebuild. The hope is that rather then let the Sox fate be decided in a one game wildcard playoff, they will instead try to build a team that can go up against the Yankees, Indians and Astros. DD should trade Xander (who I think is not going to become a middle of the order hitter) , JBJ, Pom, Kimbrel and possibly Sale. He should see if there are any takers for Porcello and Hanley if the Sox ate a chunk of salary. The next team should be built around Betts, Benni, Devers and if not traded Sale. Efforts should be made to lock up those players. Bring up the prospects over the course of the next couple years and hope to compete in 2020.
