Abreu and the Sox avoided arbitration by agreeing to a 1yr/$13M contract.

Wow. That is way below the close to $18M some projected him to make. This number certainly makes him much more tradeable now.

They will need his production this year when the slumps hit Moncada and Avi.

They’re not going to be good this year.

Whereas before I would have predicted they both play for the Sox next year, both Avi and Yolmer going to arbitration increases their chances of being dealt massively.

Yolmer had a pretty good 2017. He seems like he would be the absolute perfect backup utility infielder for a Sox team that is contending in 2019 and 2020.

They are deciding between James Shields and Miguel Gonzalez being their opening day starter.

:lol: Neither you or I have any idea if that is a conversation that is going on right now.

If they have to set it right now, Giolito should be #1. However it is probably going to depend on how guys do in the Spring as to how they lineup their pitching to start the season.

And, yes, I think the Sox should be between 80-85 wins this season.

Giolito is not going to be the opening day starter. It will be a veteran.

Should be Giolito. If the young players are what they are counting on to be the new identity of this team well then fuck it, let's embrace it. Giolito is their crown jewel, their best overall prospect of all the guys on the minors and the majors. Start this shit off right.
