Bringing Thompson up would definitely be rushing him and a drop off from Rios, but I prefer to shed payroll.
Obviously, I'm talking about rebuilding. I don't see this team competing with returning the aging players and adding a couple FA's.
Yeah, that's the ticket, throw another unprepared minor leaguer to the wolves so the board can pocket millions...
"I like the way you think, Taylor."
For ****s sake aren't you "tear it all down" people the same ones constantly screaming about the Sox rushing prospects?
Someone post that huge eye rolling smilie puking up eye rolling smilies it's the only way to express my feelings on this matter and I don't have the link...
