  1. I still call Buerhle’s no-hitter a perfect game. 27 up, 27 down. That’s a perfect game.

    That was not a strike, but okay!

    Possible that Naylor missed with his right hand on purpose? Surely not, but that was weird.

    Who calls the final batter/out? Stone gave it to Benetti for Gio’s no-no

    LOL at the fact that the game thread was longer than this before first pitch yesterday.
  6. Also not thrilled with this lineup... But Mike Minor puts the baseball in his left hand before he throws pitches, so...can't lose, right?

    The Andrew Vaughn LF Thread

    The ball That went off Vaughn’s glove in the LF corner in the third was frustrating, and a good LFer gets it, most likely, but: I actually thought it was kind of encouraging. Granted, I was watching on a small screen, but it looked like he got a decent jump, took a decent route, was not timid but not stupid, and just didn’t quite get there because he’s not fast. We absolutely can’t ask any more of him than that out there. Thoughts?

    But to others' previous points, then why is he on the roster for the first few weeks if he's not going to be used consistently? To be clear, I'm not necessarily against him sitting on Opening Day. Maybe TLR has a feel for how an OD start would weigh on someone in his position. Maybe he's going to play 17 of the first 20 games, either at DH or LF, and this OD decision is specific to OD. I don't think we know the answer to that yet. I kind of started this discussion by reading pretty deep into the very short press release that he wouldn't start on OD, but I acknowledged that I was reading pretty deep into it. Could very well be that this is not the item of interest we're treating it as right now.

    Yeah...notwithstanding my previous comments, it's hard to logically follow that aspect of the decision-making. Only thing I can think of is that Hahn and TLR aren't on the same page. Hahn wants both Collins and Vaughn on the roster but TLR is concerned about the defensive liability in LF.

    Having your top prospect play out of position after experimenting there for three games and never having played above A ball is an awful idea. Limiting another first round pick who had a remarkable spring to occasional DH and C work is also an awful idea. Platooning them is hardly ideal, but all I said is that I don't hate it. Eloy's injury and a combination of other factors leaves TLR without a clear, good option.

    May be reading way too far into it, but the link would seem to suggest that the plan is for Vaughn and Collins to platoon at DH with other options playing LF. If true, I don't hate it. But it will be very interesting if they both mash and it becomes hard to keep one out of the lineup most days. (Though I'm sure they could get both into the lineup 2ish days per week by spelling the everyday players at 1B and C.)

    Poll - predict the 2021 season records

    90 wins, and it's good for 1st. Lineup without Eloy: Top 10 in the Majors (would easily have been Top 5 with him) Starting Pitchers: Top 10 in the Majors Bullpen: Top 5 in the Majors Defense: Top 15 in the Majors I think that's a fair estimation. If that's all accurate, I think 90 wins is very achievable. Obviously the Twins also can claim similar numbers, so 2nd is still a very real possibility, but the Sox should still make the postseason as a Wild Card even if they get 2nd. As others have said, failure to make the postseason would be a real letdown at this point.

    The Andrew Vaughn LF Thread

    lol...I do recall a World Series victory in there somewhere. Right? I was there, I'm sure of it. But yeah, other than the narrative sounds about right.
