Maybe on the way to Florida the truck can pick up a hitchhiker and hire them as manager.

The truck leaves Monday at noon but, well hell it’s possible I’ll have to put up another post talking about the biggest trade the Sox have made in eight years and arguably longer than that Monday morning.
Trading Mookie Betts and ruining the joy of Truck Day? That’d be Frazzee-level villainy, no?

Your concern is noted.

3 - Assumes facts not in evidence.

Seems to be more talk about Price being in the deal now.

Maybe tomorrow we'll know.



I was trying to take emotion out of this or at least see the role that emotion plays when we talk about this, so I tried thinking of how I'd feel on the other side of trade: what if the Red Sox were trading a package of prospects for 1 year of a star. So consider the possibilities below (none of these are perfect, particularly the most recent one):

How would we feel if the Red Sox traded...

Pre 2016
Bogaerts
Owens
Margot

for one year of

McCutcheon or Goldschmidt or Donaldson
---------------

Pre 2016
Swihart
Owens
Margot

for one year of

McCutcheon or Goldschmidt or Donaldson

----------------
Pre 2018
Devers
Johnson
Chavis

for one year of

Arenado or Altuve or Rendon

----------------

Pre 2020
Chavis
Hernandez
Casas

for one year of

Bregman or Yelich



Remember, it's important to think of it in terms of the time. For example, you'd be happy to have dealt Owens and Swihart knowing what we know now, but back then Swihart was being compared to a young Buster Posey.
