    The more damning thing to me is the Marlins' knew they had positive tests, took a team vote, then asked the Phillies and they AGREED TO PLAY!

    I think I heard that the visiting clubhouse attendant in Philadelphia tested positive. Whether he was was the one that spread it through the Marlins team is to be decided. But I also heard that the Washington Nationals have taken a vote about going to play in Miami later this week and the majority voted no. So MLB will have to make some hard decisions very soon to determine whether the season will play out or not.

    Because back then it was the precious Red Sox using Apple watches. Manfred gave them a cuddly little warning and sent an email to the GMs of every team. That email, and the fact that it did not specifically require teams to inform their players, is the legal basis for the union not allowing MLB to punish players. Both sides know those punishments would not stand up in court.

    I think at the least an * next to their names as world champions

    Some players should be held accountable but I would guess the players union might be tough to overcome.

    They are saying up here the league knew 3 years ago. Why not take action then?

    I may have been on the fence at one point, but listening to the Astros damage control afterwards. YES. These guys feel no remorse and feel as if they've earned that title, hope they are booed at every stadium and a few jaded pitchers take their frustrations out on them.

    Reeeeealllly makes you wonder if they were cheating against the Rays when they eliminated us.

    Rays need to stick to what is working for them. If they are going for a big add, they should add in free agency.

    And he, above most any other GM except Andrew Friedman, knows the Rays are not in that conversation in the least. Maybe Bloom should talk to Friedman.

    Rays would never pay Betts. Ever.

    The Sox are shopping Betts and Price on the luxury aisle. Rays don’t even look sideways over there.

    So, the Red Sox resign Generational talent Mookie Betts but.... he is available.

    QUOTE
    What the Red Sox want for Mookie Betts: While it doesn’t appear that the Red Sox are on the verge of trading star outfielder Mookie Betts, there is reportedly an established asking price.

    According to ESPN baseball insider Buster Olney, Red Sox chief of baseball operations Chaim Bloom has outlined what he wants from any team trying to trade for the 27-year-old Betts, who is heading into the final year of his contract.

    A prerequisite for any trade, as Olney noted, is that a team be willing to take David Price (or Nathan Eovaldi) in the deal along with most, if not all, of the player’s salary ($96 million in Price’s case). That goes along with paying Betts the $27 million he’s owed in 2020.

    On top of that, Boston also wants “two high-end prospects to front the deal.”

    “It may be that the Red Sox never find the kind of offer they seek,” added Olney. “But Bloom has months to let this play out: Rival execs believe that Betts’s trade value really won’t drop between now and the July 31 trade deadline.”

    END QUOTE https://www.boston.com/sports/boston...-trade-red-sox

    Pull the trigger and you can get Price back with his cement shoes contract as well. Obviously the Red Sox are shedding salary, and alot of it.

    But, Betts would be a great fit for the Rays, the question is do you have the high level prospects to give up and....can you take on that kind of salary? Last, does Betts want to play in Tampa?

    To trade, my guess some team like the LA Dodgers get him. Free agency, maaaayybbeee the Yankees. Going to be big bucks.
