    Is Gio Gonzalez' shoulder recovered?

    IMO we go 6 man rotation: Giolito DK Cease Lopez (We need to see how he progresses I dont want him pitching low innings or splitting games) Gio Kopech/Rodon to see who has what and then move one into the full role and the other as a spot starter/long relief.

    Sale to have TJS

    Not WS related but something to discuss since he was a huge part of our team for years. Sucks to hear. I really hope he comes back strong. https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/28927717/red-sox-chris-sale-undergo-tommy-john-surgery
  4. I'm guessing based on his potential and age they'd rather see if he can break out and hit lefties vs simply not giving him a shot. I'd give him RF but keep a short leash. If he doesn't show he has learned how to hit lefties you platoon him.

    havent seen a chance to actually see Fulmer pitch. Looks like he had another good outing. I assume he is effective but wild? If he keeps this up, based on his draft status, I assume he is the last BP arm to make it to the majors.

    Is the weather still looking bad? I really want to see Kopech pitch then it can rain out later lol

    New York Times feature on Tim Anderson

    Really like him. Baseball needs someone to add some "swag" to the game. I feel like Bryce did but then it died off. Puig did but he got too out of control.

    Is EE toast?

    Hope it's rust and he'll be fine. I'm leaning that way although he's looked bad. Good thing is we have Mercedes and Collins if he crumbles.

    Your 2020 Season Expectations

    Voted competitive wire to wire. Everything would have to go right for us to make the play-offs this year. Abrue doesnt regress Madrigal plays well out of the gates TA repeats or slightly regresses Moncada repeats or improves Eloy improves Gio repeats etc. My expectations rise to play-offs next year though.

    McCann Trade Speculation

    If we trade McCann I would rather keep Collins down to get at bats and work on his D every day vs being in a back-up roll up here. I think we need Collins next year as a DH/C/1b guys once EE and McCann are gone. I know he cant play D well but why not have Mercedes up as the back-up C? Is he that much worse behind the plate than Collins?
  11. Colome is not looking good this spring and was not looking good towards the later part of the season. I think he has earned being OD closer but I have a feeling he wont be by mid-season. I think Cishek will be, but man.... how awesome would it be if Burdi became our closer after all he has been through.

    Really wish we had room for Mercedes.... if only he was even passable in the OF. I have these weird feeling he'll end up a poor man's version of Ortiz somewhere else.

    Sox Payroll Redux. Why did the Spending Stop ?

    I'm indifferent. Had they signed a Brad Miller I would've been happy with it. However, these vets, prior to signing, look at the teams current chances and probable playing time. If a 2nd baseman signs they know that even if Madrigal struggles he won't likely be benched. He needs to play and develop. They also know everything has to go right for us to make the playoffs this year. Not much reason to sign a 1 yr contract with us. An OF I could see bc Mazara could struggle and lose at bats and the vet could be a platoon based on pitching matchups. None are really all that exciting. I'd rather the Sox use the first half to see what we have and make moves at the break if needed.
