Then we won something and we’re like “oh shit! THAT’S WHY THEY DO THAT!?!?”
They were looking for someone to replace didi, he's supposedly gonna be out a long while and then I believe he's an FA so they could've probably moved him between the 2 or dh. Irrelevant now obviously.
If the sox win 5 more titles in the next 10yrs with high salary what ridiculous nickname would people even give them?
The first order. Come on, that’s a layup.
Yeah, you can't beat Jason's Empire and First Order comps.
Jason's empire hahaha
I dunno but I wouldn't be watching much baseball anymore, I know that for sure
Only way that could be worse would be if the Red Sox and Cubs alternated WS titles for the next decade
Or the cardinals.
Nah at least we haven't won one for a solid seven years now
Sad :( Luis was awesome here in Houston
Wow. How sad.
Yeah I could give a shit about John Henry's money. In fact I hope he spends as much as possible on the Red Sox. Maybe that means less for Liverpool heh
I would give way more of a shit if they let eovoldi go and had to find a new starter via trade. Spend all the cash you want but leave what little prospects we have alone.
Yankees are sitting at 164 right now, if the Red Sox are gonna blow past 250 Cashman really has no excuse to NOT sign Machado or Harper lol
Haha well Dombrowski is not exactly the guy for this mindset but I agree. They definitely hired Dombrowski at the right time - he's the guy you want presiding over your contending team, keeping it going for as long as possible, but as soon as you go into rebuilding/selling/prospect hoarding mode he becomes a liability
He was a really fun player on some really bad Cubs teams. RIP.
Oh def. my point was more “he dombrowski’d” hard and it worked. But it’s not sustainable so let’s use the cash to keep the window open without robbing from the future. Which is exactly what signing Eovoldi does.
Based on this morning's presser, Goldschmidt seems like the most boring personality of all time: all-business, no fanfare, few smiles, etc. I don't care at all what he's like personality-wise so long as his OPS is above .900 again this year and he hits a half-dozen or more dingers at Wrigley, we've got other guys on our team with personality that don't hit as well as he does. But he should be a perfect fit for our boring bland midwestern fanbase haha
haha i was watching that thinking he seems like the absolute perfect personality for us
Voit was too fun for you guys, that explains it haha jk
Yeah hindsight is 20/20 of course but we might have had a better 2018 if we had started Voit at 1B, Carp at 3B and had Gyorko be the utility guy he really is. But then Goldy wouldn't be a Cardinal and he's definitely a helluva lot better than Voit so I'll take it
Always gonna root for Voit though, STL kid that he is
