    Betts value rises as he sits

    I get that it's a nice story, but Jesus Christ these owners are milking the **** out of this. To the point where it comes off as a complete marketing ploy and makes me angry.

    Nothing is ever organic, it's always a planned out event...I didn't think the PA announcer was ever going to wrap it up...

    Do you guys think Betts will be traded or re-signed? For the knowledgeable baseball ppl on this site, which teams have the best prospects / MLB players we could acquire in return. If you could provide team names and players that would be great.

    Thx

    Traded. I also think that this team will be systematically dismantled by the new GM and the focus will be on drafting homegrown, more cost effective talent than throwing money at high priced UFAs. The every day core of Betts, JDM, XB, and Devers will be reduced to Xander and Devers while they retool and try to rebuild the pool of prospects.

    betts to the mets for Syndergaard and Conforto. He signs 10/375 mil extension. 2025 he hits a slow roller down the first base line thru Triston Casas legs game 7 WS and the new Mookie matches the old Mookie.

    As if the Yankees weren’t already going to get beaten by HOU, now they have to go into the playoffs without Germán

    They should at least stop playing the song when they are getting blown out it gives the impression that the redsox are only for the pinkhat crowd and the product is not important

    The problem with that common sense is you are expecting it from the most tone deaf organization

    Since 2004, most of the Red Sox game experience gives that impression, even with some incredibly good and fun teams to watch.

    Feels like this is where we're headed, doesn't it? Sucks because Betts is exactly the type of player that you should do whatever it takes to keep. The only hope that I have is that ownership is so concerned over the PR ****storm if they trade him or let him leave that they're forced to write him a blank check.

    How many other good hitters do we have? Most cost controlled. Not paying Betts means you can keep JDM keep the expensive rotation add to the bullpen etc etc. I kinda think he’s going to rot for months in free agency if he wants more than we are offering and we can get him in a year. Get a good young starter and sign him as a FA.

    Rusney Castillo Won't Exercise His 2020 Opt-Out Clause

    Just the most amazing professional contract ever given

    I wonder what he does all day and with all that money ?

    To go from poverty to wealthy beyond your dreams but not realizing your goal to play Major League Baseball

    Saddest part is that he’s still living in his apartment in Boston because he still has dreams of playing for the Sox and commutes to Pawtucket every day.


    Such a bizarre situation. Not talented enough to justify the luxury tax penalty. Too talented to have been toiling away in AAA. Would’ve made a nice bench OF in the NL imo

    Not to nitpick, but he did have 99 games with the big club.

    I know that and saw him play live but that’s not really the plan

    He's not actually too talented for AAA.
