I wonder if Moreland was even a downgrade from Hosmer.Just after the Stanton acquisition by the Yankees there was some speculation that the Sox would be able to get get back into contention by signing Eric Hosmer and J.D. Martinez. Instead Dumbrowski resigned Mitch Moreland, a decent player but certainly a downgrade from Hosmer. Now the Sox seem to have turned Martinez off and the door may have closed on picking him up. Reminds me of their treatment of Jon Lester. Oh how I long for the days of Theo!
No I think he’s gonna get porcello money as a max level.With the Sox exercising their option on Sale, and Price surely not opting out, Eovaldi would be competing with Porcello for the third starter in the rotation. The question may be, can the Sox sign him with #3 starter money or will someone else be willing to pay him as a 1 or 2?
