    2020 Pats: 2020 Roster & Beyond (non-QB edition)

    I had read that Thuney signed his tender. Under the new CBA, can they negotiate a restructuring or is the one-year rule in place?

    Stark: Doing the math on the ‘competitive balance tax,’ and the Red Sox’ motivation to trade Mookie Betts

    It does get annoying the constant retain that paying Mookie would force a CBT penalty and "if you pay him X, you're really paying X+Y." Why is his salary the one causing a penalty and none of the other awful contracts scrutinized? His salary may get them over the limit, but there are plenty...

    Are they done moving salary?

    I think, if healthy, JDM will be highly sought after on July 31. Think about the Rays. If they are in it, they would love that bat, and the risk seems low that he would opt in to stay there if he's having a good-enough season to be actually sought after. If he plays that well, he'd tear up...

    Sox talking Mookie trade with Dodgers, Padres - News & Discussion

    I would explore a dump Price trade now to get under the limit and trade Mookie at the deadline (whether this can be achieved is another matter). If there is more competition for him in late July, when the buyer only has to carry $9 million of his money and the season's progress has more...

    Who will be the next manager?

    I think they should go the interim veteran route. Pay someone a nice parting gift to steady the ship to let the brass figure it out. No one you would really want long term would come here in the third week of January, with an organization in turmoil and looking to cut salary under a new GM...

    2020 Coaching Carousel: #AnyoneButMcDaniels

    This may make sense since one of the things the media cited as a reason Josh came back from the Indy job was that Bill was that he would open up the curtain on running the organization more. We've heard recently that he'd already been doing this with Judge.

    2020 Pats: Bengals Coach Implies Patriots Taping Play Signals

    With this latest media-fuel anti-Patriots saga, it would be nice if anyone would step back and ask themselves, in a moment of intellectual honesty, do they really think something nefarious was occurring? Is there any real way to connect any dots to what they want us to believe? I know they are...

    Should the Red Sox Look into Punto Pt. 2?

    Did you mean 2019? Because they won the World Series in 2018. Then they started out the 2019 season in full immolation mode and never recovered.

    Should the Red Sox Look into Punto Pt. 2?

    I guess this is where we differ reasonably. I am of the mind that the mantra being peddled to us about him walking away is to cover that they are doing this as a financial move. The pending free agency stuff only began when the floated plan to pare payroll wasn't exactly embraced. It has only...

    Should the Red Sox Look into Punto Pt. 2?

    I would argue that Goldschmidt is a great player, but is not the overall talent and draw that a Betts is, and that's important to teams looking to generate revenue. Also, I wouldn't compare the Red Sox payroll composition to the Diamondbacks. The best way for John Henry to make money with the...

    Should the Red Sox Look into Punto Pt. 2?

    I am on the side of fury that the Sox are going to cheap out and could lose the best player they have drafted and developed in ages. Through their media allies, we have been force fed the narrative that they must, MUST!, get below the luxury tax threshold like it's some kind of hard cap. I...

    Pre-Game Thread: Buffalo

    Assuming they can beat the Dolphins at home in a Week 17 "we quit" matchup with banged up people resting (Sanu, Edelman). If the Bears upset the Chiefs at Soldier Filed next Sunday night, all the better.

    Win this game and then rest everyone valuable for two weeks. Miami will let you beat them with Jarret Stidham for the draft pick

    2020 Pats: Bengals Coach Implies Patriots Taping Play Signals

    I would think if the Patriots are fined, Kraft will sue the film team (if they are independent contractors) since they committed the violation. he won't get anything but it would be symbolic.
