    the TLR managing thread

    The main reason we lost the game tonight is Bieber, period. But boy, it's hard to look at that lineup and say that TLR gave his team the best shot at winning. I can't for the life of me figure out why Williams and Lamb are hitting 5th and 7th tonight. A week from today they could both be without a major league team and no one would be surprised. It's a real headscratcher. I'm not that bothered by Crochet coming in. It's not like Hendriks has been lights out. Also you could move Moncada to the 2 spot, or down in the lineup. But without Moncada hitting, and Eloy out, this team isn't going anywhere. Doesn't matter where TLR puts him in the lineup.

    I'm a little concerned that Luis Robert is actually not that great at hitting.

    Sox Sign Jake Lamb

    Can we stop with all the suggestions that Moncada is soft? In the last three seasons, he has basically played the same number of games as Tim Anderson (actually a few more). And he seemed to have toughed it out last year while dealing with COVID. Moncada appears to have elite level athleticism, but he couldn't even run the bases last year without being totally gassed. From me, he actually gets credit for toughing it out, even when he couldn't put up 2019-type numbers. But that's just me, and doesn't mean Lamb isn't useful depth.

    Spring Training thread

    My gut says more credit for this should go to clubhouse leaders like Tim Anderson and Jose Abreu. But TLR could be part of that.
  6. Is there anything he can't do?!?!

    3/2 Rangers vs Sox 2PM CT NBCSChicago

    Sorry for the random response, but Kyyle I just noticed your signature block, and wanted to say that I was at that game. I think it was at the metrodome eh?

    I thought the most encouraging thing was seeing Moncada swipe second base. He looked healthy yesterday.

    Colome to Twins, 1YR 5M plus option

    I think people are more likely to remember the tough innings Colomé had, but don't really remember all the clean, or almost totally clean innings he had. Last year he had 21 (i think) appearances. In 8 of those appearances he faced the minimum number of batters. Additionally, i think he only allowed more than 2 baserunners 3 times. So pretty clean. Obviously, he may come back to earth. But do I think Hendriks is worth 2.1X what the Twins will pay Colomé this season? No.

    Madrigal 3000 hits "very reachable"

    Good for him. It's a long shot. But he's the type of player that could do it. Love Nicky!
