Bautista About To Re-Sign With Jays On 2-Year Deal

Bautista About To Re-Sign With Jays On 2-Year Deal

Well, Red Sox fans, you can pretty much start getting used to the Mitch Moreland Era at Fenway. Multiple reports indicate that the Blue Jays and José Bautista are very close to inking a 2-year, $37 million deal. So, Dave Dombrowski probably could have gotten Joey Bats for around $18 million a year. The huge lineup void left by the departure of David Ortiz could have been effectively filled. But no, we need to keep under the salary cap. Right?

Sam Travis On Track To Be 'Hidden' Force On Red Sox

Sam Travis On Track To Be 'Hidden' Force On Red Sox

Emerging Red Sox Star Sam TravisWay back in November, we wrote that Red Sox prospect Sam Travis could be a factor on the 2017 team. Now, the mainstream sports media is catching up—sort of. According to The Boston Herald's Evan Drellich, Travis is a "2018 arrival at the latest." Actually, we think he could be anchored at first base (or DH) by the All-Star Break this year—especially when Mitch Moreland inevitably regresses to the mean. As long as he is healthy, Travis can be a beast at the plate. Before suffering a torn ACL last Spring, he was one of the hottest hitters in camp (.469, 13...

Should Sox Have Waited Longer For Slugger Solution?

Should Sox Have Waited Longer For Slugger Solution?

Mitch MorelandThe Providence Journal's Brian MacPherson suggests that it might have been more prudent for Dave Dombrowki to wait out the slugger market instead of signing Mitch Moreland (just 22 HRs in 2016) way back in December. The way the market has regressed for big bats, MacPherson is probably right. While the Red Sox only needed to shell out $5 million for Moreland—he is hardly the kind of hitter who can replace the "on-base capabilities" of David Ortiz (to paraphrase a former Red sox GM). Still out there ripe for plucking are the likes of José Bautista, old buddy Mike Napoli and...

Today’s links look at the decision to sign Mitch Moreland so early, Rusney Castillo’s status in the organization, and an update on the minor leagues.

Wait A Minute. Really? Panda and Moreland At The Corners?

Wait A Minute. Really? Panda and Moreland At The Corners?

Sandoval (L); Moreland (R)As we all bask in the glory of the Red Sox off-season—and project them as a 'slam dunk' to repeat as AL East Champs—a stark reality is beginning to set in with the New Year. Pablo Sandoval and Mitch Moreland are likely to start the season as our corner infielders? Say what? Apparently, Dave Dombrowski is comfortable with that (at least about The Panda) saying, "I think he can come back and be a good, dependable, everyday third baseman for us, from an offensive and a defensive perspective. I think if he can go out there and hit .270 to .275 and hit 12 to 15 home...
