    Josh Donaldson called Tim Anderson "Jackie"

    The Sox should of thrown at him last weekend. It's nice that someone finally stood up to him.

    Hahn’s 2022 Offseason (So Far)

    I agree, for the most part they have made a solid core. A couple of the guys have left me wanting more (Eloy and Moncada specifically), but they still have time to fulfill their potential. But to your point on Hahn. I 100% agree. Last winter, a number of us were getting a little cranky with the moves or lack of moves Hahn was making, and unfortunately, it's panned out how we feared, or even worse. Hahn has done a horrible job augmenting this core. I don't know how you can spin it any other way. Blatantly ignoring glaring holes on the team. Hell, he even opened up this 2B hole last summer that didn't need to be opened up. He not only hasn't filled the holes well, but his bad moves have created even more holes on the team. All this said, TLR has made it clear over the years how obsessed he is with strong bullpens. And KW has always been the guy to bring in players after their prime. So this is where I wonder if Hahn's hands are tied? I'm not convinced he is pulling the strings here. Last winter's moves are more traits of KW (the aging star acquisitions) and TLR (the bullpen and utility player moves) than of Hahn IMO.

    Glad to see Dallas has pride

    He wants to hit 160 IP, which he won't get to.

    It's time to put Jose out to pasture

    I'm ready for the Sox to move on from Abreu after this season. It's Vaughn's time and Vaughn can't play an adequate outfield. He needs to play first base.

    GT 5/13: Yankees @ SOX, 7:10 pm CT, NBCSC

    You're putting a Rick Hahn-esque type of spin on this. For the last 4 seasons, the Sox are the Yankees bitches. There's a serious matchup problem here.

    The Sox have won 1 of their last 10 games against the Yankees going back to 2019 (including going 1-5 in 2021). There's no point from last year where they did fine against them.

    If they're going to continue prioritizing relievers and utility infielders over impact players, then I would agree it will be hard to get there.
  8. He should of pulled him here. But you're misplacing your anger. Joe Kelly is the one to blame here. Throw a damn strike dude.

    Retooling / quasi-rebuild

    If you trade Eloy now, or anytime by next winter, you're likely getting pennies on the dollar back for him. And maybe some people would be ok with that between his injuries and underperforming. I'm not ready to go there yet.

    Retooling / quasi-rebuild

    That was a nice get for the Twins. I don't think we should delude ourselves in to thinking Rick Hahn will pull off a similar feat. Especially with such immediate results. More likely it would be a few years before you see success from prospects, even if they do pan out.

    Retooling / quasi-rebuild

    If you move Lynn and Giolito, you may be punting on the entire rebuild, as opposed to just accepting its a bad year and trying again next year. They don't have the prospects knocking down the door to replace these guys. And we know Jerry doesn't want to spend at the top of the market for free agent starting pitchers.

    Retooling / quasi-rebuild

    Hopefully they don't have to retool or rebuild at the deadline. But some of these relievers could be valuable trade chips if that becomes the case. Good relievers are gold to teams heading towards the playoffs. You can moves guys like Graveman, Kelly or even Hendriks before thinking about moving the Giolito's or Eloy's IMO.

    Time to Sacrifice Dallas

    For sure. Jerry spent 35 years telling us how much he regrets allowing TLR to get fired by Hawk. It wont happen again, no matter how deserving. I think our only chance there is, if TLR himself decides he is done with this crap and retires.

    JR is paying the money out whether they keep him or not. They don't need to double down on the Keuchel problem by letting him lose every 5th game (not that it's all on him, but he does really suck). As for DFA-ing him. I'd say when they're ready to call up Cueto, pull the trigger. If that means waiting another week, then ok.

    Retooling / quasi-rebuild

    Hopefully they aren't in the position to want to sell at the deadline. But if they are. What concerns me is, I've lost faith that the current management can make proper decisions to be a championship team. When you ignore glaring holes and load up on relievers and utility infielders - why should the people that made these decisions get another swing at the plate?
