I think Porcello could’ve brought some random prospect or two. I’d look to see what you could get for JBJ, Moreland, Mookie. This team isn’t going anywhere in 2019 so aim for 2020 imo.I keep seeing people post this. What could he have sold? And for what value other than getting off the roster so that we wouldn’t have to watch them anymore. Just to watch some kid that we’re excited about, simply because we don’t know that they suck yet, when in reality, if they were any good they’d be on the roster already, or not available for the corpse of guys like Rick Porcello. Isn’t the possibility of success greater by simply riding this roster out to see if literally the same starting staff as last season can figure it out and make a run? Or are people just being irrational and just don’t want to see their stupid faces again?
The Sox need to stop wasting so much money giving big contracts to mediocre players and use some of that money to steal coaches ,scouts, and other baseball ops talent from the Rays.So the Red Sox with the highest payroll in baseball probably are not going to make the playoffs, while this clownshow of a franchise with a payroll of $17.62 and 17 fans are, that's just all kinds of fucking awesome.
It's totally irrational, but I hate this little train that could/pack of plucky ballbags of a franchise.
I blame Maddon.
