Red Sox wouldn't trade for Kimbrel.  They wouldn't give up anyone decent for him ever.  Barnes is doing fine and there is a little bad blood regards Kimbrel in Boston too.  Boston needs another really good set-up man since Ottavino has been melting down more often than not in that role.

And talking about meltdowns, E-Rod pooped the mound tonight big time.  He is up and down like a yo-yo regards his starts this season.  So Boston is looking at Berrios more seriously now and lesser starting pitching talent as well.

Rich Rodriguez would fit the bill…

Could they target Hudson?

I'd love to see that myself.  But I hear the Pirates are thinking about holding on to him.  Cheap and team control stuff.

Haven't been following Hudson much.  So can't really say much about him.

LIMBO GUYS????  So what happens to guys like Luke Voit and Gavin Lux who are both on the IL but Voit was rumored to be back this weekend.

Does Voit get traded?  Rizzo is a FA soon so do they keep Voit not wanting to try and extend Rizzo and go over the luxury tax next year?  Can't think Voit's contract traded away would give them enough room for a Rizzo contract unless some other contracts are expiring.

How about Lux?  Top 3 prospect on a lot of lists that is still struggling at major league level so far.  Young and under team control.  Does he get moved now?  I don't know when Seager and Turner contracts are up.

Seager is an upcoming FA I believe

So assuming Seager and Turner play 2b/SS, are the Dodgers going to sit Bellinger or Pollack and play Taylor in the OF?  They can't seriously consider benching Taylor and Pollock has hit pretty well.  Bellinger is the guy that can't hit the broad side of a barn this year so logically he should sit and be out of a job.

Seager and Chris Taylor are free agents at the end of this season, Turner after 2022. I would guess Lux is still in their future plans, although it doesn’t look good for his PT the rest of this year.

Dodgers should do a deal for Kimbral using him. Jansen sucks.
