He destroyed LHP last year, but against RHP he had a slightly less than league average 99 RC+.

Iím content to go year to year with him, with Sheets having shown solid power in AA and likely to start 2020 in Charlotte, meaning Vaughn probably starts 2020 in Birmingham. Along with Collins, the Sox have multiple young cheap candidates to compete to provide 1B/DH power as soon as 2021, so it would be more efficient to use the savings to invest in the rotation and perhaps at catcher (Grandal?).

Abreu accepting the QO is best for the Sox.

The universe is the practical joke of the General at the expense of the Particular, quoth Frater Perdurabo, and laughed. The disciples nearest him wept, seeing the Universal Sorrow. Others laughed, seeing the Universal Joke. Others wept. Others laughed. Others wept because they couldn't see the Joke, and others laughed lest they should be thought not to see the Joke. But though FRATER laughed openly, he wept secretly; and really he neither laughed nor wept. Nor did he mean what he said.
