This is likely (hopefully?) going to change by around Memorial Day, but as of right now, I'm considering the centerpiece to be Downs (nee Graterol).“If it we the regular season, he’d be playing”
“If it were the stretch run, he’d be playing”
This situation is why I haven’t opined on whether this was a good or bad trade yet. The final score on the trade can’t be written until the primary piece proves he’s healthy. If the Red Sox doctors and Bloom were wrong about this it’s a flat out disaster.
I don’t know how you look at a guy who has had 7 months to heal, still isnt right, and you DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT’S WRONG, and take him as the centerpiece of a deal for Mookie Betts and a highly subsidized David Price.
This is the Chris Sale contract all over again. Why do this when you didn’t have to?
