    KA – BLOOM!


    The VERY last thing the Red Sox need is another often injured player.


    • Nathan Green

      I think Taylor’s value is pretty low right now, and I’m confident they are in discussions with FA lefties (moore/chafin). As a backup they also have sheriff/Walter as a 3rd lefty (Paxton probably ends up in the pen). Sox need middle IF depth and gave up effectively nothing in my eyes, hard to complain about that.

    • Michael Marshall

      You realize they traded a pitcher who just missed an entire season with a back injury, right?

      • DJ dajuba

        Yup, still would rather of kept him then traded for Mondesi

    • Erik Jager

      Dajuba, my friend,
      The Red Sox need his speed and defense. Bloom seemed frustrated by Talyor last season for his injuries knowing that he could have helped their pathetic bullpen. He kept having setbacks which is probably Bloom’s main reason. Gotta love Bloom!

      • DJ dajuba

        As days go bye, I still hate this trade, does Mondesi start the year on the DL? does he miss the first month? More? Bloom should still go out and sign Andrus, then I’d like the trade.

        • Erik Jager

          Elvis Andrus maybe too much commitment for the Red Sox at this point. What happens to Kiki? Andrus is going to want a longer-term deal of two or three years. A lesser guy like Iglesias fits better. The Red Sox need to get a lefty and another infielder. Do they leave some trade deadline money?

    Hopefully the PTBNL the Red Sox receive will be something

    This trade means that the Red Sox believe Ryan Sherriff will be a competent LHP in the bullpen. I agree–his peripherals suggest an ERA around 4.00, good enough for the role.

    If Adalberto Mondesi can perform as a healthy player for half a season, it’s a win. It’s his “walk year:” if, like most players, can at least match his career averages and play 140 games in his “walk year,” he’ll be an average MLB SS on defense with 15 HR and 50 SB. Even with a .280 OBP, that’s a valuable player.

    Because Mondesi is such high risk, there are probably two lists for the PTBNL, who’ll likely be named around the All-Star break. If Mondesi fails, it might be a 21st-30th ranked prospect; if he plays normally the first half, it might be a lesser prospect or cash.
