Now if we can lose Chaim Bloom and the owner John Henry.


Bloom wants the Sawx to be like the Devil Rays, just competitive enough but no stars to eat up the payroll. Just hope he doesn't sell Henry on the idea of a roof for Fenway ala the Trop.

I initially was wondering whether Turner wanted to make sure he would play shortstop, but it appears Padres are moving Tatis to outfield (?). I believe Turner lives in Florida. I heard he prefers to be on East Coast.

Ex-Nationals of note: Harper, Turner, Schwarber (although only one season in DC) in Philly. Scherzer on Mets. Josh Bell on Guardians. Rendon on Angels. Nationals are in a major rebuild.


Doh. Forgot Soto on Padres.

That is true regarding the Phillies.  Turner and Harper are friends from their time in DC, which many feel was the real deciding factor.  The Padres also offered Judge more than the Yankees.  

Not sure what San Diego is doing...attempting to hoard all of the shortstops in the game?

Mets signed Verlander around same time as Phillies signed Turner.

Aye - a lot of blockbuster deals going on in a short period of time.

41-year-old shortstops are a rarity. I figure 100 million of that was intended as a rude gesture to Fernando Tatis. SD fans and I imagine ownership is pissed at that guy. They've spent decades lambasting San Francisco as dirty...

Outbid by the Padres of all teams. 11 years I heard, which is crazy. Not sure how much of it is guaranteed. Any short stops in the fahm system?

Red Sox sign OF Masataka Yoshida:

https://www.espn.com/mlb/story...

Yoshida, 29, locked in a deal with the Red Sox on the first day he was eligible to sign after the Orix Buffaloes, the reigning Japan Series champion, posted him. A corner outfielder, Yoshida hit .335/.447/.561 with 21 home runs, 80 walks and just 41 strikeouts in 508 plate appearances this year.

...

Yoshida spent seven seasons with Orix, distinguishing himself as one of the best players in Japan. Over his career, he has batted .326/.419/.538 with just 307 strikeouts in 3,251 plate appearances. Minnesota Twinsleadoff man Luis Arraez was the only player in MLB last year with a lower strikeout rate than Yoshida.



Only setback is he doesn’t have an arm, but playing in LF at Fenway might equalize that out.

I guess Orix is the company, not a town, so that's weird, but an oryx is a bovid, as are buffaloes. I thought that part was awesome.

I'd read that the Yankees and Judge's representatives have "been exchanging offers", but I didn't know if Judge was personally meeting with any teams - though he was apparently hanging out with Tom Brady in Tampa last night.
