    Machado do-over

    The only do-over I want is the millions of hours I spent on the message board from December through February. Good lord, that was unhealthy.

    Next year will be the first year they’ll be competing for a playoff spot, so things might be handled differently. And Vaughn is more advanced than other prospects.

    Good point. If Vaughn goes on a Robert like tear at AA early next year, he could be with the big league club in June or July. Of course, there are other variables at play like what kind of production we are getting at 1B/DH and how the Sox are doing overall.

    What's the difference between him and Madrigal/Robert? It seems like Vaughn is on a similar path as those two guys, just a year behind. Both of them started in A+ this year. Is it just because of how advanced they feel Vaughn's bat is? Or will Vaughn be getting more time in A+ this year than Madrigal got last year? I can't remember.

    How confident are you that Vaughn will start in AA next year? I would love that, personally.

    He’s played 13 games only at A+

    Even if this wasn’t his draft year, why would you be concerned? He’s played a whopping 13 games in A+ with an OPS of .842, and he has more walks than strike outs.

    Is wRC+ park adjusted in the minors? If not, that’s even more impressive.

    You meant to type Vaughn on your last stat line.

    Luis Robert and Nick Madrigal

    I agree with this. The only reason I had Madrigal 1 and Robert 2 in my mock lineup is because that’s what they started doing at AAA. But I prefer Madrigal in the 2 spot.

    Luis Robert and Nick Madrigal

    I want to sign Gordon to a one year deal. I would hardly call that a “solution”.

    Luis Robert and Nick Madrigal

    If we sign Grandal and a RF (let’s say Gordon), I go with something like this: 1. Madrigal 2B 2. Robert CF 3. Moncada 3B 4. Eloy LF 5. Grandal C/DH 6. Abreu 1B 7. Anderson SS 8. Gordon RF 9. McCann DH/C

    Stiever taken out after 3 scoreless due to a high pitch count (79 total).

    Free Agency - How confident are you?

    That’s a great question. I’m not really sure. I guess it would depend on examining the results and figuring out the reason (velocity drop?, bad luck in a small sample?, etc.). But I know that’s just my way of skating around your question.

    Free Agency - How confident are you?

    I was thinking something in the range of 3 for $40, but with the quote you provided, now I’m not so sure.
