    Yeah..... they are messing up their 1st round DRAFT PICK next year with this Wild Card nonsense......HAHA!!!!

    But really it is a mirage. The team is old and expensive. They would also still have to jump 5 teams for the 2nd WC. They have no legit shot at the Dodgers, Yanks, Astros, Cubs, Braves, ect... in 2019. They need to deal Bumgarner (SP), Will Smith (RP) and Tony Watson (RP).

    Their farm system is barren except for recent high picks Joey Bart (2018 #2 overall) and Heliot Ramos (2017 #19 overall). They need to restock the system with some legit prospects.

    Keeping the aging core at the deadline is just going to lengthen the true rebuild.

    Iíd be worked up about the Sox this year but honestly, weíve been on such a good run around here that Iím more disgusted than worked up.

    Whatís a shame is they have the talent to compete again but Dumblousky knowingly and deliberately did NOTHING to shore up their obvious weakness in the offseason, and thatís been the difference between a pennant race and a yeah whatever they suck season.

    I guess they should just trade everyone away and rebuild the farm system - isn't that how it's supposed to work now?

    All new jerseys to sell next year!

    The Braves better trade for someone. A starter and some bullpen. Iíd say the lineup can score runs.

    The Dodgers outscored the Phillies 37-20 and managed to split the 4 game series thanks to their horrible bullpen.

    Nobody could top The Earl of Baltimore. Different time back then.

    Boone is already having to explain what he meant by calling his players savages in the box. I know exactly what he meant.

    See thatís the thing. I donít think heís good enough as a GM to do that. He burns up farm systems, he doesnít build them.

    If he was good, heíd be looking to deal Betts, Porcello, Bradley, and maybe even JD. Those guys are not staying long term. And Betts isnít worth the $ heís going to get. Heís a great player but heís no Trout. Heís too small to hold up carrying a team a full season and playoffs.

    Iíd talk to JD and offer him long term if he wanted to stay, move him if not. And start to move the other guys to rebuild the system. My only untouchables are probably Bogie and Devers.

    But he wonít do that. Heíll get run out of here in a couple of years and leave a hot mess. Like he always does.

    Plus not sure Sox ownership has the guts to rebuild. One of the reasons Theo left. Marketing has too much sway. Need to feed the beast.
