    Garrett Whitlock

    24 years old with minimal AA time. He was essentially a 1 pitch pitcher with a projectable slider. His change is brand new. The fact it’s already a wipe out pitch is a gift from god and Matt Andriese. We are very fortunate.

    Garrett Whitlock

    The out of no where development of his change from the direction of Andriese has been breathtaking. The change up was considered a third “show me” level pitch for him before this year. He was a sinker slider guy, which ultimately lowered his ceiling. With that pitch in tow, and the ability to...

    Maybe the Red Sox are good?

    I think it’s more pitching. Everyone they bring out is competent and has a strength. It’s shocking how deep the staff is.

    Alex Verdugo - on-field discussion thread

    You mean the one where we have absolutely no idea what happened other than Verdugo certainly not committing assault and being cleared of any crimes?

    2021 Draft

    He won’t be there at 4 if that’s his new normal.

    Red Sox trade (P) Springs and Mazza to TB Rays for (C) Hernandez

    His overall production dropped with the move from Low A to High A. Again, it wasn’t a disaster, but he lit up Low A at 20 years old as a catcher. That will put you on top 100 lists. He’s got that of talent, but it just hasn’t come together at an upper level yet. It might never happen, but if...

    Red Sox trade (P) Springs and Mazza to TB Rays for (C) Hernandez

    Springs has very intriguing statcast spin rates. Would be no surprise if he became productive. Its still a fantastic move that required leaving no stone unturned.

    Red Sox trade (P) Springs and Mazza to TB Rays for (C) Hernandez

    This is exactly right. Hernández isn’t some unreal, can’t miss prospect, but he slots into a organizational gap and has legit upside. Getting him for 2 DFA guys is an under the radar no risk move. You keep at it, you relentlessly add people with upside to your organization, and at some point...

    Red Sox trade (P) Springs and Mazza to TB Rays for (C) Hernandez

    He was 21 in 2019. He was a 21 year old catcher in very low offensive output high A league. He put up a +wRC of 104. Again, -2 years in high A. He put up a +wRC 133 as a 20 year old catch in low A. There aren’t many catching prospects that can say that. If he isn’t a legit prospect then...

    Red Sox trade (P) Springs and Mazza to TB Rays for (C) Hernandez

    It’s really interesting because obviously those guys were cleared from the 40, but Hernandez is very much real. For an organization that has very little catching depth, he will fit in nicely in AA and is immediately a top 15 prospect in this system.

    Red Sox Hire Chaim Bloom As Chief Baseball Officer

    https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/section-10-podcast/id976803232?i=1000508442352 A must listen, long form interview with Chaim. The guy is very easy to listen to and has a very clear path and vision.

    Red Sox sign Marwin Gonzalez (1 year, 3 mil)

    The bottom line Is that Chaim has made this team significantly better, the system deeper, and lowered future payroll obligations. Its been very intriguing to watch. This roster is flexible and every player is good at specific things that can be exploited over the course of a season. This...

    Benintendi to Royals for Franchy Cordero, Mets RHP prospect Josh Winckowski, and 3 PTBNLs

    I think the PTBNL later has to be a top 20ish prospect from the Mets. With the Royals PTBNL being more lower level high upside guys. So I think you’ll end up with 3 years of a very high upside OF bat, 2 top 20 prospects, and 2 lower level but intriguing talents. I think, at a minimum...

    Benintendi to Royals for Franchy Cordero, Mets RHP prospect Josh Winckowski, and 3 PTBNLs

    Given the entirety of the trade, I have to think the PTBNL player pool from the Mets is significant.

    Yea, I’m struggling with this too. There must be a reason for that structuring.
