    I know this is probably a major stretch.

    Logic is they shed money for salary cap. First, they shed most of JD’s contract, and the acquisition of Greg Allen allows them to non-tender JBJ.

    That sheds around $20M for the Red Sox payroll in 2020. I don’t know how close they are to salary cap consideration, but I have a feeling they want to shed some payroll.

      JDM is untradeable until he decides whether or not to opt out, which is why his value is zero right now. Is this trade assuming he does not opt out? If that’s the case, I could see it. But if he doesn’t opt out, his trade value will go up, so either way this isn’t going to work.

        I figured he would decide to not opt out. And I thought that was already in the calculus.
