    I want a long term catcher and honestly want cry to see Houck and Duran move on. I HATE that Houck chose to sit out Toronto.

    Won’t cry! Any player who can’t vaccinate for team first and is instead me, me, me…see ya!

      Grover. I don’t think this deal comes without risk for both teams. For Houck I don’t like that he isn’t vaccinated while many others on Boston roster like Bogey and Arroyo decided to do it for their teammates. I also think there is a chance he won’t start long term. He may but he could also end up being multi innings reliever who dominates against RHH. The allure of him becoming a horse is tantalizing if he can consistently get LHH out. It’s certainly a risk giving him up.

      While I am excited about the athleticism and potential of Duran his bat and constant stance changes is worrisome.

      I like Murphy in Boston and really believe the team needs new leadership behind the plate. I was thinking a younger stud backstop with more years of control but Murphy is the right catcher. His presence would make long term impact on entire pitching staff. I’ll take my chances with alternatives to Houck in rotation both short and long term.

        I like Houck and if Boston is willing to deal him… I don’t see Oakland saying “No”.

        Is this something you see happening in-season?

        • Keith Lyons

          Grover. No idea 😄. I personally would like to see it considered and happen in season but who knows. If it’s more a consideration after the season then I’d be for that too. I just think Murphy is the perfect fit to be Boston’s future catcher and would fit into the culture and excel in the market and would be worth the price.

    Oakland got a steal in Duran and also Houck (ofc)
    But I like Sean Murphy going to Boston
