Sox Therapy: An Overdue Look at the Roster

Gonfalon Cubs: Finally

It’s probably safe to assume the Cubs were able to finalize their deal with Darvish because they waited out the market, though being patient while the Cubs sat there with a huge hole in the rotation wasn’t easy for us fans.  The Cubs guaranteed $200+million to pitchers this offseason, and yet it still was a pretty quiet one overall.  While it’ll be interesting to see how the Cubs plan on spending their money over the next few years having added another big deal - with us hoping for still ...

Sox Therapy: For Future Considerations

Boston’s offer on the table to J.D. Martinez is $125 million for 5 years, according to “source”. (Yeah, thanks, Boston Herald.) But what are the penalties under the new CBA, and is Boston likely to incur them, if they make that deal? In short: hefty, and yes.

Sox Therapy: The Future’s So Bright, I Gotta Wear Lightly Tinted Shades

For the first time in about a decade the Red Sox have a farm system that can best be described as “thin.”  Despite that the Sox are in pretty good shape as the core of the roster is relatively young and club controlled for 2-3 more seasons which is plenty of time for things to be built back up.  With that in mind I want to consider a few guys currently in the system who in my opinion could be breakout stars in 2018;

1B - Josh Ockimey - Likely Start Point*: Portland (AA) - I’ve liked Ockimey ...
