    7/30 CWS v CLE 7:10 PM CDT

    I wasn’t watching at that point. What happened with the ump and Ruiz?

    He was not a Wild Thing that inning.

    Now that our bullpen is stacked, every fifth game, can we have Kopech and Crochet pitch the first five innings? Stick one of them in the outfield and they can just switch on a batter by batter basis, where Kopech faces all the righties and Crochet faces all the lefties.

    I think it could happen. I’m pretty sure Tony values a strong bullpen as much as any manager in baseball.

    If we want to, yes.

    That how I envision it. And that’s after Kopech and Crochet/Cease pitch the first four or five innings of a playoff game.

    For sure. That’s a no-brainer. But the people complaining about the trade are worried about 2023-2026. I’m saying we can easily grab another “Hernandez” to fill that role moving forward. I also don’t think people realize how good Kimbrel has been this year. This move significantly improves our team this year and next.

    I think you are answering my question with an incorrect assumption of why I’m asking it. Hypothetically speaking, now that all the deals are done, if we could replace Hernandez with a healthy Madrigal, I don’t think it improves our chances much at all this year to win it all (and I’m a fan of Madrigal). My point is that it’s worth it to give up Madrigal for Kimbrel because I think we can continue to plug Madrigal’s spot with guys like Hernandez and not lose much at all.

    Of course. @southsider2k5, I’m talking about if Madrigal was 100% healthy.

    Here’s a legitimate question for everybody: Everything else being equal, how much different are our chances to win the World Series this year with Hernandez at 2B instead of Madrigal?

    You know how some people claim that a closer should be used in the highest leverage situation as opposed to a clean 9th (like two on in the 6th or 7th)? Now the Sox can use that strategy and still have a closer for the 9th.

    How you feeling about the trade, James?

    Even if we pick up the money? How about Crochet and Burger for those two?

    Bryant and Kimbrel for Burger/Thompson/Lambert/Adolfo?
  15. Could the lower BABIP be a result of him lifting the ball more and going for more power? Or is that too big of a drop where there has to be some bad luck involved? I’m far from a BABIP expert.

    Glass half full: Our outfield defense looks great!

    Where can I sign up for this year turning into a repeat of 2005?

    I need more context. You should try the quote feature.

    I know what he meant. But by disregarding the ridiculously high number of walks Grandal has, he’s ignoring a huge part of his game.

    Why is anybody even bothering to reply to downcubsfan? Obvious troll.

    You are completely using hindsight to form your opinion. If Goodwin strikes out there and Engel is safe at second, I guarantee you don’t say anything about how it was dumb to send him.

    Sox @ Royals, 7/26, 7:10, Game Thread

    Huh? The right order? It wasn’t a hit and run and it wasn’t a run and hit. It was sending the runner on a full count to avoid a double play. It happens a lot in baseball. If you’re not going to do it just because it’s the 9th inning, then you shouldn’t do it in any inning. A strike out and a line out are what you are hoping doesn’t happen. It was unlucky. It happens.

    The fact that you called it a “hit and run” automatically means your opinion is worthless. I would have ran Engel there also. I said as much before the pitch.

    He doesn’t have 250 at bats. He has only 181.
