While the Red Sox scarp up Chris Sale and we are hustling to resign Mark Trumbo, why the heck aren't we signing a from line pitcher ?

We should have signed Sale or a comparable SP.  We doesnt this team ever acquire a front line pitcher ?   

 

Anytone have a clue ?

We are going to need a bigger ship for the Jays, Sox and Yanks.

We can't compete with the Red Sox payroll. Pitchers especially are going to have to be home grown or players taken chances on.

Let Boston over pay for pitching, they play in a hitters ball park, and haven't replaced 38 hrs and 127 RBIs that retired on them

It's a fantastic move. Short term, friendly salary. He seems like a good guy so hopefully he does well and is here the full three years, but if the team struggles it's a really movable contract.

The front office hit a home run with this one. Pun intended.

The problem is teams are looking to unload contracts going into 2019 to be able to move in that FA field.  They really might not want to take him on.

Can't wait to get your take when they resign Manny.

He is not resigning.  They should trade him for a gigantic return.  In 2019 they will lose him for nothing at all.

If Trumbo turns into the crown jewel of this off season, I'll be disappointed.  We still have no disciplined batters.

Nice to hear the ball hitting the gloves down here, even though our local news spent the day with the Red Sux
