  1. 2017-2018 Off-season and Hot Stove Thread

    Sox desperately needed to add some power to that lineup. If I were a Sox fan I'd be fine with the deal.

    Even in his mea culpa to the media today he threw out this line and showed he's still as mentally fragile as they come: "We can talk," Price said. "But you're not going to come over and overload me with negativity. It's not going to happen. That's not going to happen." http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/22422147/david-price-boston-red-sox-admits-attitude-not-great-last-year

    If he can get more consistent with his changeup (varies between a filthy pitch and a pitch that barely moves at all) he can be even better than last year.

    Not a simple fix but relegating the bottom 3-4 teams in a given league each season would do wonders for preventing tanking and keeping fanbases and teams interested regardless of how awful their season is going.
  5. Disagree on Judge. Think he'll be a consensus top-5 pick after this season.

    I don't think his arm is fine. And it probably will never be fine again.
  7. Matt Harvey 2018 Outlook

    Yep, it was 95 playing like 90. And the movement on his offspeed stuff was almost non-existent. Honestly there were no positives to take away from last year whatsoever. He looked like one of the worst pitchers in baseball nearly every time out and the numbers backed that up.
  8. Alex Bregman 2018 Outlook

    It's amazing how he turned his season around. I remember in early-mid June he was looking like one of the biggest busts of the season. He was even dropped in a lot of leagues, that's how putrid his first 2.5 months were. But definitely think he's turned a corner and won't have any reservations about paying at least close to full value this season.

    Wouldn't be surprised if the cold weather has an adverse effect on his lower back (a problem that seems to crop up somewhat often with him). Would somewhat explain his slow starts and you could even chalk his October performances against the Yankees up to it as well.

    Seems unlikely for me due to the lack of steals.

    When his HR/FB rate came back to earth in the 2H he hit 15 bombs in 243 ABs. Extrapolate that over 600 ABs (assuming health, obviously) and you get between 35-38 HRs. I think that'd be a realistic/fair projection for him this season. He could absolutely hit 40 but to say it's his floor or that he'll sleepwalk into it is a bit extreme, IMO.

    You think his floor is 40 bombs?
  13. Joey Votto 2018 Outlook

    He OPSed 1.010 in the 2H last season...

    Seems like the type of skillset that would age very well. I'm more than comfortable paying full value.
