Yes that is correct.

I'm pretty sure that 2018 was the last year of "playing for draft position" for the Sox. 2019 will be the season where the team starts to get the chemistry together. I expect wins in the 70 range.

While Kopech won't be with us in '19, the rest of the rotation can start to gel along with the Bullpen. Eloy will probably be here. perhaps Collins or Zavala will be here to get used to The Show. That leaves Third in the infield open (at this date, probably another year of Sanchez). Abreu will hold down First. and 2/3 of the outfield is TBA.

Not a bad set-up for using 2019 as the launching year for the fun (2020 and beyond).

I'll go with that; but Hahn needs to do a better job with flipping. No more declining Rule 5 eligible prospects. At some point, results matter.
