    Of course there is the real possibility that Dallas' career is over and he should retire. That he'll never be a MLB pitcher again. 

    Looking at the options today IMHO him returning to something close to his former self is as likely or unlikely as the other options being a reliable 5th starter. So keep running him out there and hope for the best.

    I'd like to know what people are seeing in Cueto that makes them believe he'd be as good or better. I believe he has one more "who cares what his stats are he's getting ready start" then he's got to get some outs in AAA to be considered for a rotation spot. 

    Cueto was a lot better than Keuchel last year and has a 4.39 FIP so far in AAA.

    Keuchel is the worst SP in baseball and would get lit up by a mediocre A+ lineup, much less a AAA one  Let's see what Cueto can do. Keuchel is an auto-loss every game he starts.

    Sox need to show a bit more urgency here. Today / tomorrow needs to be VVs last start. Cueto isn’t some young arm they need to be careful with. Get his ass up here. 

    We should have seen Keuchel's last start.

    VV is absolutely a better option than Keuchel. DFA Keuchel when Cueto is ready

    What in god's name makes you think Burger can play a decent 2B? There's literally no examples of a guy his profile playing it in the last 30 years that I can remember. Nobody moves from a mediocre to bad 3B and suddenly becomes a solid 2B, not at the MLB level. It's not like he's 21 anymore either he's pretty developed physically.

    Max Muncy?

    Is this a real question? He’d probably be our best hitter against RHP and this team isn’t good against them if you haven’t noticed. 

    No shit. Nobody has signed Conforto and it isn't even clear if he's healthy.

    They should have traded for Meadows, an actual active, healthy OF

    After just 8 games?

    That award almost always goes to managers who see their teams through 15-20 game positive swings from year to year in victories.

    The Twins are down Buxton, Kiriloff and Sonny Gray now.  Every team in baseball has injuries due to a confluence of factors.

    Using injuries as an excuse for the Twins when you would never allow that for the Sox? So pathetic.

    I might have to contact the sponsors lolololol
