    The Newest Vaughn

    Good plate discipline - He had the lowest chase rate of any AAA batter earlier this season. His June stats: 65 PA 310/.538/.476/1.015 6.2 K% 32.3 BB% .324 BABIP At SS and 3B he has not been good defensively, however at 2b he has committed only 1 error in almost 500 innings including zero...

    The Newest Vaughn

    Where does Meidroth fit into the plans? Only 22 and an OBP machine. How does he compare to Mayer as SS and Grissom at 2b?

    Red Sox trade deadline rumors

    I'm guessing Dominic Smith when Casas returns.... they are trying to add a right handed bat per Breslow ("The chance to maybe look to add some right-handed offense could make sense.”) - taking O'Neil out would not make sense.

    Let's Lay Off That Throttle

    Because I am conceited. And...for Monty specifically I think it points in that direction, although not with everyone we have been "in on"

    Let's Lay Off That Throttle

    And Montgomery going for 1 year 25 million with a 20 million option....and still have 5 million and assets for the trade deadline.

    Remaining Free Agent Speculation and Signings (Trades, too)

    If Snell is getting 2/62... where is Monty's market falling? Certainly something that the Sox are looking for... short term that keeps them under the tax.

    2024 Red Sox Spring Training

    Interested to see perspectives....How would your rank each pitcher in our starter roles and bullpen based on spring training results so far?

    The Frailty of the Modern Pitcher

    So sign a guy long term young (Bello) or get them on a good Post TJ surgery contract for 3.

    Offseason rumors

    Article this morning "This is not a profit-oriented business, the baseball business. This is a responsibility, a stewardship by John [Henry], Tom [Werner] and Mike [Gordon] to do everything they can to put a winning, great product on the field, and that will continue in 2024 and beyond.” -...

    Offseason rumors

    Porter Hodge is exactly the kind of guy I can see Breslow making a move for. From North Side Baseball... It was probably surprising to some when the Cubs protected Hodge from the Rule 5 Draft last month, but take a deeper look into his pitch characteristics and you can start to see why the...

    Offseason rumors

    I like those arms...I think it sets things up nicely... but a lot of those names we are hoping they reach their potential or that they return to their potential.

    Offseason rumors

    I don't think there will be an auction - If he decides he is going to drop his price I am guessing Boras contacts the teams in order of who he wants to play for.

    Offseason rumors

    Looks like Joely Rodgriguez is rejoining the Sox on a minor league deal per Pete Abraham...

    Offseason rumors

    On board with all except 4..... If Duran continues his improvement I see him as a valuable part of the future. Jansen and Martin will bring more at the deadline unless someone's closer goes down early. Just one opinion.
