I can't tell you how happy I was to see that it's THAT type of scooter.
Considering he had a 5.83 ERA at home & 0.84 ERA on the road last year, I would be concerned about the opposite. Now if they have any promising hitters...Hirokazu Sawamura has gone back to the Chiba Lotte Marines, his most recent NPB team prior to joining the Sox. Hopefully he spends the next couple seasons telling Roki Sasaki how awesome Boston is.
Happy to see that he landed on a team that should be playing post season baseball. It will be interesting to see if Wacha eased up on his ask.
I believe so. 4/24 would have to be something like 10/8/4/2 with opt outs after every year, or at least after years 2 and 3. Gotta wait and see the details.IIRC wasn't he reportedly looking for something in the range of at least 2 years/$28M? Again, looking to see how this is structured.
Seems to be becoming a trend with these complex if/then contracts. From Paxton to Green to Wacha. Multi-year team and player options are the new opt-out clause.
Man, I know the Sox want to stay under the tax threshold, but that seems like a pretty awesome deal for both sides. Would have loved to see him come back on a deal like that.
I imagine that since he's signing it now, as camps are opening, that it's not something he'd have agreed to in December or January when the Sox might have been more inclined to re-sign him. They moved on to Kluber and Wacha had to settle for something more unconventional.Man, I know the Sox want to stay under the tax threshold, but that seems like a pretty awesome deal for both sides.

Yes, I believe that today is the day for both. Any word on Wonger's health status? I like what we've seen from him thus far, but where/how would Tapia fit in compared to the flexibility that RFsnyder gives the team?I post this not because I give two shits about Jeurys Familia but because it's a reminder that it's coming up on decision time on guys like Raimel Tapia and Jorge Alfaro as well.
Wonder if his agent found him a roster spot somewhere, he had a great spring:Franchy is no longer an orange bird.
