This is a great trade for the Red Sox.  He is about as good of an add possible as to what they need to get further in the playoffs.  The cost is very good for the next 3 years.  Their lineup will still be very good.  All they need is Panda, Holt, or Shaw to hold down 3rd.  Betts and Moncada are not comparable..that's stupid.


Shaw was traded as well...

No,  a brewers set up man... pomeranz could be a middle reliever. Bucholtz needs to shape up or move out


Bruins > Habs

Good move by the Sox (red). Pretty sure he fits perfectly for that team.

Though I feel that if the Yankees made the same move, Ed would say "look at the stupid yankees, trading all their prospects like usual!"

Yankees will be a non-factor again this year. Doesn't matter what they do.

I'm happy the White Sox got a good haul for Sale. I wonder how interested the Cubs were, although Reinsdorf really dislikes them so they probably wouldn't have even traded him to the Cubs without an absolute raping. The Red SOX are probably a legit threat to the Cubs repeating now.

I don't think Cubs repeat, their pitching has another year of wear and tear.

Why is that an issue? Lester, Hendricks, and Arieta are all still well within their prime. None of them have extensive injury histories. Every teams pitching staff has another year of wear on them.

3 guys who have proven they can pitch in the playoffs.

Arrieta slowed down quite a bit, Lester is old, Hendricks is OK, but it's just I'm noticing that Theo likes to stock up on position guys and pick up pitchers as he goes. But either way, I don't care if they repeat, got one in my life, I'm good

Lester isn't that old. He pitched great last year and I didn't see any signs of slowing down. Arieta lost a little control but was still good last year. A lot of his reduced success was from batters laying off his pitches outside the zone.

Hendricks will be interesting. We will see if he can continue his Cy Young caliber play.

Still those aren't reasons the Cubs staff will be more affected than other teams.

Buying and renting players is the part of baseball (all pro sports) that I really hate.

It's the world we live in, but it really sucks the fun out of rooting for your team.

Wow - huge for the BoSox... CHI wanted Odor and Mazara to start the talks, then more after that. Texas said no deal.

Wonder how he pitches in the postseason, nobody knows? :dunno:

The White Sox were terrible with him, Quintana and Eaton. They had zero position players in the farm system worth a damn. Needed to rebuild at some point. Might as well trade the asset to bring the most back. Besides, the Sox have a knack for finding starting pitching in the draft. It's the only thing they do right.
