    Sox playoff chances sit at 62.9%, 7th overall in AL

    How many other teams are dealing with a similar level of injuries, opt-outs, and infected individuals? It doesn't seem to me like we get to complain about missing an unusual number of people and use that as an excuse we have to "factor in" if every team has similar numbers of people out.

    Sox playoff chances sit at 62.9%, 7th overall in AL

    Cleveland's pitching staff is one of the better ones in recent memory. Sox battled yesterday. Season all hinges on another starter coming up big. Giolito and Keuchel are good to go and Cease is starting to makes some strides. 2 of Rodon, Lopez, Gio or Dunning have to stay healthy the rest of the season and give a solid 5 each start. The bullpen has been great so far, but being 2 starters down is just not going to work even in a sprint.

    Ozzie isn't very good on the Pre/Post-Game

    Just to get an idea of JR's weath, ARod, who probably made more money playing baseball than anyone ever, and J-LO, an entertainment mogul, can't come close to buying the Mets. JR has the Sox, worth about as much as the Mets, and the Bulls, according to Forbes, worth almost double that.

    I like it, especially with 28 man rosters. Not having it would make the games even longer.

    2020 College Football thread

    I think it's there only choice. Jim Harbaugh can cry how Michigan has zero positives, other than the fact that they are probably due one or two, if they play another school, the amount of faith you put on that other school for what could be a life or death situation, and even if college age people tend not to die, other complications like the heart thing that is out there now, to risk that for a football game, isn't too bright.

    Early thoughts on new rules

    I do like the 3 inning rule. Honestly, I'd be fine with 8 inning games. They need to do something to speed this shit up. Robotic umps is my #1 request. People see how difficult it is to call a game for umpires. Calling balls and strikes isn't easy. It really bugs me when a pitcher misses his spot but throws a clear strike, but it isn't called a strike because the catcher was set up on the other side of the plate. It happens so damn often. There needs to be more consistency.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    You havent seen any restaurants that are only allowing 1-2 tables inside and the rest outside? Because they exist. Which goes back to the original point. Im not sure why protecting the people at Montrose Harbor is the hill you want to die on about outside safety. The people that went there literally had to walk past plenty of open space. From Montrose to Wilson on the East side of LSD is empty every day. I guess I dont see why we are defending their right to be 50 feet closer to the water and put everyone in danger.

    Basabe traded to SF for cash considerations

    I can't get worked up about this. If he's not capable of playing CF adequately there's no place for him anywhere near a MLB roster as a 4th OF. The Giants are where the Sox were 4 years ago and can give a flyer on anybody that will immediately move into the top 15 in a shallow system. If anything this move signifies how much depth Chicago has built in their system the last few years.

    Are we allowed to start a thread or comment here about the riots in Chicago Sunday night? Heard and read it was bad. Hope everybody is safe amid the chaos.

    You got me, did not realize you were 100 feet away, eating with 5 other people independently and not talking. Yes, perhaps we can convert all of our malls to a single restaurant where each seated party gets its own storefront, I agree that will be safer than Montrose. Now back to reality.

    8/10 Sox vs Tigers GT

    As you put it, how horrible the Tigers will end up is irrelevant. This is a small sample size series and they have been playing well. In fact, they may feel disappointed if they lose to us. Respect is earned, and so far, they have more of it. This is a good time to show MLB we have in fact arrived.

    8/10 Sox vs Tigers GT

    The Tigers went .500 against a scuffling Reds team and the Royals, then swept the abysmal Pirates. They might be the best of the worst teams but this is absolutely still a bad baseball team, and even if we are the worst of the best teams we should be able to win this series.

    I understand why it should exist for this season (I would take it away in the post-season however). I just wish that it wasn't until say the 13th inning so you don't have those long games. Give each team 3 changes to win it before adding the runner.

    Agreed 100%. I hate that a guy comes up and it's automatically deemed he can't get the opposite handed batter out. That's what the game has become.

    8/10 Sox vs Tigers GT

    I'm with you but right now they are playing better baseball than the Sox, that's a fact. Things can change but I don't have faith that Renteria will have these guys ready to go tonight. I can see another lineup change and another 3-4 run performance. And with all the injuries to the pitching that won't be enough more often than not.

    The Tigers are horrible, doesn’t matter if they performed well in a small sample size. Anything but a series win would be a major disappointment

    Basabe traded to SF for cash considerations

    Delmonico at least had a very productive rookie year, I will take any bet that he would be able to outperform Basabe offensively, hopefully we’ll never get to that point though.

    Early thoughts on new rules

    I kinda hated the idea of the extra innings rule at first, but it rewards teams that can execute baseball fundamentals, so I am fine with it. Looking around the league though, three outcome baseball made scoring a runner from 2nd with no outs more difficult than it should.

    Goins at least has a good glove. Not sure you can argue much production from Delmonico.

    8/10 Sox vs Tigers GT

    Tigers actually are coming in playing well. This could be an absolute train wreck. I have no faith in Renteria rallying these guys emotionally.

    Basabe traded to SF for cash considerations

    Basabe doesn‘t profile well as a corner OF. He got caught in the numbers game. At least with org guys like Delmonico or Goins you can plug them into a major league lineup and arguably get some level of production.

    Can I ask what your science background is that you can definitively state that eating in a restaurant with 5 other people spread out over 100 feet is more dangerous than being at a beach when 20-50 people are within 2 feet?

    PItching injuries list

    Their assessment that Hudson wouldn’t last as a starter was also right.
  27. GermanSoxFan

    So who's the next manager?

    Steve Stone has dry wit. He is funny without trying too hard. I wouldn’t trade him for any color guy in the league besides the Mets duo of Herandez and Darling.
