    Outside of Kershaw they're a bunch of guys having career years. Not sure I trust that come October, especially since Kershaw has not been the best in the postseason.
    Alex Wood?

    By far his best year, a lot of injury history. He has thrown 130 innings the last two years combined. Is he gonna be able to go 180 or more counting the playoffs?

    So Boston needs a 3B, you have to wonder if the Reds would be willing to move Suarez knowing Senzel is moving up the minors quickly?

    No. Why would you trade a young piece of your puzzle. He has been solid at 3rd this year. Needs to become more consistent at the plate, but that will come with time. This teams issues are on the hill and IMO Schebler and Hamilton could stand to be replaced.

    Apparently, Price is worried that a hot bat might burn Cozart's fingers.

    Because he's not going to be playing much 3B past this year in Cincinnati....

    Really? Heard the same thing about Winker and he still cannot crack the lineup. If Suarez does not play third, then he will likely play short. He is going nowhere until he is no longer under team control IMO.

    Yes. Senzel is shooting through the system and is considered one of the top 10 prospects in all of baseball. Winker was never at his level.

    Winker will be out their every day next year.

    What do you mean that you heard the same thing about Winker?

    Bases loaded, no out and they fail to get a ball out of the infield....That's not good, right?

    Sure wish Price would have done a better job managing that game.

    No. The Red Sox are only looking for a rental. They aren't going to give up any of their top prospects and aren't going to block Rafael Devers who was recently called up to AAA. I look for them to get Eduardo Nunez or Jed Lowrie.
