MLB notes: Red Sox’ future plans all start with Chris Sale

Before the Red Sox make any trades or free agent signings this offseason, one of the first things they can do, one of the most obvious and important things they can do, is to figure out what it will cost to extend Chris Sale.Sale could be the key to the entire offseason. He’s certainly the key to their future, and without knowing the likelihood that he’ll still be wearing a Boston uniform in 2020, it’s difficult to look at the available starting pitchers this winter and assess the best route for a Red Sox team trying to go all-in in 2019 and 2020.Before presenting a few scenarios for...

MLB Roundup 11/17: Sonny Gray will probably be traded soon

And the Phillies want to spend A Sonny Gray trade is probably coming soon The Sonny Gray situation is sort of a weird one, not in that he’s going to be traded but rather in how public it’s been. The Yankees traded for Gray in 2017 and he just hasn’t worked out in New York, particularly this past year. He was a disaster for much of 2018, pitching to a 4.90 ERA over 130 innings this past summer. He was legitimately unplayable for stretches this season. That the Yankees want to move on the year before his free agency makes some sense. They’ve been extremely public about it, though,...

What would Don Mattingly be worth as a free agent today?

Part four of our series turns to Donnie Baseball. Don Mattingly may well be one of the most underrated Yankees of the past half-century, especially among casual baseball fans, or fans of non-Yankee teams. The heart of the Bronx Bombers during the World Series-less 1980’s, Mattingly’s excellence is overshadowed by the Core Five and their playoff success, as well as his own injury-hastened exit from baseball. Given that the Yankees won more games in the 1980’s as a whole than any other team in baseball, it’s reasonable to think that if the Wild Card existed during the prime of...

With the need to improve the rotation high, should the team be looking at the lefty or moving on to better things? On one of his recent podcasts, John Stolnis mentioned that signing Dallas Keuchel was not something the Phillies should be pursuing. Even with the team’s need to improve its starting rotation, Keuchel was not a guy who “is a fit here” with the Phillies. That’s an interesting statement to make. With so few premier arms available to the highest bidder, to simply cast one of them aside simply because of the makeup of the current roster seems an odd choice to make entering...
