    Launch Engel?

    thanks for reading, man! Not sure there's a lot of adam engel fans in the wild so this probably isn't an SEO's dream article.

    They called up Anderson. Ryan Goins really serves no purpose. TA and Madrigal are hurt and he still only pinch runs. He's obvious as well. All in all, it really isn't a big deal, but the Sox still have several guys who suck. At least you can't go easily 15 deep with easy DFA if needed decisions anymore.

    Thank you Ray Ray.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    If the argument is what is "safe", isnt the answer "nothing." Going to a crowded beach and eating indoors both have risk. I guess if I have to pick id rather support a business and help people pay their bills than go to a beach where there is a completely unregulated crowd of people who likely havent been following social distancing etc.

    I was surprised by how big he looked in Summer Camp

    He doesn't really profile in a corner.

    Early thoughts on new rules

    Yep, I would hope they do not use it in the postseason....and completely get rid of it for full seasons.

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

    I'm going to guess that losing 3/5 of the starting rotation and 4/9 starters for some time ranks right up there at the top. That's tough to do in less than 20 games.

    Rick Hahn literally mentioned him as a call up possibility for this season days ago.

    DFA- ing Flores would have been much worse in my opinion. He has actually had success in the upper minors, and he is a LHP that is close to contributing. I don't understand why anyone would advocate cutting him instead.

    8/10 Sox vs Tigers GT

    Were about to see an all time storm in Chicago. Hopefully they can get the game in before it hits Detroit.

    I was sad about this, he had a pretty nice 2018 and then last year it made it unlikely. However, I always thought that tier of guys like basabe would always be easy use for a middle reliever trade, but this year really makes that difficult.

    8/10 Sox vs Tigers GT

    I don't know what the Tigers are waiting for to call up their young pitchers. The service time BS has passed and they are missing out on invaluable experience in a year where wins and losses don't matter. They need to look no further than the Royals handling of Singer and Bubic to see how it's done.

    Robert definitely needed a day. 3 hits and a walk in his last 20 at bats, while racking up 9 Ks in that time (ouch)

    Why hasn’t Encarnacion been IL’ed yet?

    Still no EE, and also no Robert.

    Not to mention our guys go through this every year. Rodon is always hurt. Kopech has only pitched in a few games in three seasons. Anderson, Eloy, and Moncada get nagging injuries. Healthy or not, Lopez is more miss than hit. These things need to be accounted for in any season as they are likely ro happen to everyone.

    And the extra roster churn generated by all of the injuries, COVID, and extra roster spots put them in a place where they had to make the move now.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    It's not about protecting the people about Montrose Harbor, as much as countering the point that indoor dining is safe. https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/eid/article/26/8/20-1274_article I'm not a scientist, but in South Korea there was an outbreak in an office/residential building. 97% of those infected were on the same floor, with the infections mostly occurring on one side. Depending on how the air flows through an indoor setting, in a situation where you will be there for roughly an hour, unmasked and conversing, you are at high risk if you happen to be dining in the same restaurant as an infected individual. Now, your odds are lower to be dining with one, because there are less people, but if you are at a beach with infected people vs in a restaurant with one, I'd rather be at the beach. I wish to God that restaurants were given financial assistance to survive and I understand their plight, but the only safety as a community we are getting from the current standards is if there is an outbreak in a restaurant it only affects a small amount of people, which isn't that helpful from an individual risk assessment point of view.

    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.

    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.
