    Colome has been successful like this since 2015 though. At least we know he doesn't fold when the going gets tough.

    I can't believe he separated his shoulder on that play, or injured himself at all for that matter. That was just a routine slide into third base. Hopefully someone can teach him to slide properly, should have never happened

    20+% of his at bats would be guaranteed to be with the bases empty. That could be close to 90 missed opportunities over the course of a full season compared to batting third, not to mention the difference in the rest of his at bats between hitting behind 9,1,2, in particular Moncada, and 7,8,9 hitters. He would also be the ideal batter to come up in a 2 out no runner situation, since between his speed and power he would be the most likely to be able to score with two outs. To me, its a no brainer

    Robert long term in the lead off spot seems like a waste to me. He should have the maximum amount of at bats with runners on base possible. I would go with Moncada, Robert, Jimenez at 2,3,4.

    You asked if we can all agree, that implies you already agree. Whatever, though, no big deal. Just saying, you didn't have to go there to make your point.

    Well, you just accused probably tens of thousands of Sox fans of antisemitism just to make an entirely unrelated point. I'm all for open dialogue, but that seems like a jack ass move to me, particularly considering the topic at hand. Who gives a shit about anyone's baseless opinion on who someone may or may not have had sex with in the first place?

    You must really want to speculate about Kopech's wife. Trying to equate sports owner cheapness, a common topic on sports boards, to antisemitism in order to make your point seems a tad excessive, considering the original topic isn't even worth talking about to begin with. Kind of distasteful to just throw out antisemitism accusations over this horse shit issue, frankly.

    We've gotten spoiled with Moncada, Jimenez and Robert. With Vaughn, IMO, that gives us four guys in the last couple of years who are or were essentially can't miss prospects. But can't miss prospects don't come around that often. Collins is a notch below that, but he still has very good potential. A few years ago we would have been hanging our hat on him.

    His immediate value is allowing Grandal and McCann to be in the game at the same time, and allow them to come off the bench to pinch hit without worrying about using Leury as emergency catcher. Secondarily he is a pretty good left handed hitter himself Beyond that his offensive upside is pretty high and vastly underrated around here imo

    Well, I agree on being a fan of a thirteen pitch at bat as well. If you're going to make an out, that is the way to do it. I'd even go so far as to say there might even be a rare occurrence where a 13 pitch out might be preferable to a first pitch base hit.
  14. Vulture


    I agree the deal you suggested would have been preferable, but it could be Moncada didn't want to sign past '25. Hopefully he'll still be in the latter part of his prime at that point. This way he gets a nice deal in the mean time while setting himself up for another long term deal to carry him through the last half of his career. Can't blame if that were the case. Sox might be in a position to re-sign him if the next six years go the way we hope anyway.

    Still, if you're talking about two mediocre hitters at best, when you have plenty of good hitters in the lineup and on the bench, go with the vastly superior defender rather than the debatably, slightly superior offensive player. We should always have a decent bat off the bench to come in if necessary in a pivotal situation.
