Yeah, but how does he rate on the Phegley-Flowers scale?

I really don't see him going anywhere else...

We can hope though right?
When I read that about the Dodgers I figured the Sox are quite unlikely to get him.

He also said he had been in the DR, Australia and LA on Sox business the last ten days. I don't know if that's a clue, any big Dominican or Australian guys out there?

On the other hand, he also said "There's been speculation the past few days, but I'd rather keep things under the radar." The only recent speculation I've seen is on Tanaka.

Also "There is nothing more important than the business taking place the next few days."

If we don't get Tanaka, Kenny Williams is an *******.

Cubs reportedly "willing to go to nine figures" on Tanaka.
