It would be less than ideal if he’s the injury prone pitcher he’s been for much of his career, such as what he’s given the Sox this year, and in ‘19. If he’s what he was in ‘21, yeah, it would be a steal.Eovaldi accepting the QO would be fantastic.
We have like $150M to play with next year. How would it be bad if we signed a top 10 starter in MLB (by fWAR) over ‘21-22 to a 1/$18M deal?
It may be worth the risk, but I’m assuming an Eovaldi who accepts the QO isn’t one you want.
The SP market looks weak enough that he probably doesn’t accept one (unless he’s hurt, at which point it wouldn’t be offered) and can at least find a deal similar to Rodon or Syndergaard?
