    The Bill Walton Game: Sox vs what's your name again

    Was that Tim or was the guy just that fast going to first?

    You see that slide past the bag out all the, all the time. It seems like that should be really pretty easy to avoid if you pay attention to what you're doing. What else do you have to have your concentration on once you reach the bag? But it must be tougher than it looks.

    Wow, it's nice to see McCann hitting the ball again. I was really starting to worry he was going to regress back to that .230 hitter we got from Detroit.

    That's what I'm thinking. Just walk his ass and take your chances with the next batter. He is insane.

    Also, what you said about Steele Walker in RF and then moving Eloy to DH does make sense. If Eloy isn't showing marked improvement on defense by mid-next year, you're right. Have to really start looking at moving him to DH as Abreu (really actually does) starts to decline. But in the mean time, give him a chance to improve.

    We agree on that one.

    Good point. When you see stuff like that, it's very disconcerting for many reasons.

    Bill's mind was blown wide open long ago. I think at a Dead concert in '91. One of several Dead concerts Bill was at that year.

    I don't think last year's Giolito is what he is now or will see going forward, of course not. But I don't think the Giolito we saw the first half of the season will be the Gio we see going forward either, for whatever reason I don't know. I think that was aberration. I think the one we see now is the one we're gonna see the rest of his time with the Sox. Not spectacular like he was earlier this season, but a good solid, smart pitcher who takes the ball and most of the time gives you a chance to win and will get you around 14 wins a year. Do you agree?

    You can always get an DH who can bat (well not the Sox this year, but usually). There aren't too many left fielders out there who are going to get 40 or so home runs for the next 10 years or so. He has a good work ethic; he will get better and be more than adequate.

    That's about the only time Ricky has them bunt that I agree with.

    This is an overreaction. We need his bat in the lineup from left field. He'll get better and do just fine there. Every player on the team can't DH.

    Back to Eloy not catching that ball. Do you think he catches that next year?I would say yes. He's already improved a ton from the start of the year.
