    Luis Robert and Nick Madrigal

    I am conflicted on Grandal. Love his bat. Love adding a star catcher with Vet experience...but Collins really needs a fair shot. If his recent raking is the final adjustment he needed to make, him/McCann make a great pairing, we get another lefty presence in the lineup and Abreu/Collins/Vaughn all can jump between 1B/DH for the next 2-3 seasons. Vaughn is the one that makes me think Grandal is not needed, as his bat will work it's way up by next Fall IMO. They should commit to 1-2 star quality pitchers and stay home grown for all these position players. Keeps the window longer and allows a couple early signs for Moncada/Robert as an option.

    8/14- Sox vs Astros, 1:10, WGN

    I thought it happened when the daddy Sox fan drinks several 312s and mommy Sox fan makes animal noises behind the closed door with him...

    Glad to see him break out of mini slump. I'm sure it's boredom at this point

    Sox and As game 3 rubber match

    Real good first inning. Slider and a 96mph heater could lead to a great game today

    Astros get Greinke

    Cole should be a FA 100% now. No way he stays on with them...let the suitors and briefcases of cash line up...

    40 Man Trash

    Good thing you only need 25 for a roster. The starting lineup by 2021 will be incredible. We just need to relax through this absolute garbage now and hope they buy two really really good starting pitchers. The doldrums of 30-40 on most teams doesn't look pretty I'm sure.

    7/25 Games

    2 BBs, a single and a Double is quite a productive night.

    Is Giolito an ace?

    after further review...NOPE.

    Gerrit Cole - The Rebuild’s Fulcrum

    This is going to be an unpopular opinion...but I think the Sox should trade Jimenez and prospect for a controllable #1 or #2 from another team. With Robert coming up and it much easier to buy a FA right or left fielder....I think that is their best chance to get elite talent. I know losing Jimenez would be a blow...but he simply can't survive in the outfield long term and Vaughn is the 1st baseman for the next 10 seasons. Signing Cole is the right idea...but it just won't happen and Hahn needs to have another creative idea.

    Cannon. Mark another checklist off the MLB ready no excuse list. Hahn is gonna have to get pretty creative

    7/14 Games

    yep. Swoon. 2020 & beyond is going to be so amazing.

    7/14 Games

    Robert has the Soriano 40/40 potential as a leadoff hitter. The fact that so many pitchers feature their fastball on the first batter of the game...Robert realistically could hit 20 HRs a year on first or 2nd pitch fastballs...Seriously.

    7/11 Games

    If he puts up a 900 OPS as a rook...the dude is going to be a top ten player in baseball in his prime without a doubt. 2021 has potential to be a no pants season...because I won't be able to afford ripping through so many...

    Vaughn to Kannapolis

    Was hoping he would go straight to WS, but his rise will be meteoric and exciting no matter where he goes.

    Crowded at 1B

    Palka? Really man. Ship has sailed on him
  16. Let's F'ing GO!!!
  17. weird to think that fun bad is basically done with for the foreseeable future. Going to be ulcer good going forward.
  18. Palka is getting sent down very soon and most likely DFA'd. thanks but no thanks.
  19. Hahn did pretty well this offseason all things considered. An All-star Catcher that we should retain and a shutdown closer. Jay is putting together nice at bats and they cut bait with the Yonder mistake. I just wish Herrera would turn it around. Nova is just a stop gap, so no worries there.
  20. ding ding ding. which is why AAA numbers, especially with the live ball were too heavily scrutinized. he will only get better as McCann learns him more. McCann is a must sign for them at this point.
  21. Giolito, Cole, Kopech, Cease. Cease easily becomes best #4 in baseball by 2021...😃
  22. well boys...remember this game. THIS is the turning point of the rebuild.
  23. Cease's change is looking NICE. pitch count is going to be his biggest issue. Reminds me of Gio from 2 seasons ago in that regard.
  24. just got into the thread...is the sky still falling?

    Rumor: Cease will be called up "very soon"

    Most excellent news. And pressure should be low since the garbage they have been throwing has set the bar LOW.
