    Soler would have fit in well with the other Cuban players and Abreu could have taken him under his wing. GRF is also a good fit for his power.

    Madrigal was one of the few contact hitters in the Sox lineup. Sox need more contact hitters as we have observed throughout this season.

    Problem with the Kimbrel deal was that we did not really need him. We already had Hendricks plus Kopech,Bummer, crochet and had acquired Tepera. Second problem was that we grossly overpaid for CK when we could have used resources instead to obtain the RF that we sorely needed. The Kimbrel trade was the Quintana trade in reverse.

    Agree with you150%. I could not have said it better. I grade it a D because of Tepera, otherwise I would have graded an F.

    Great for Billy. Wish we do more running going forward. Steal a run here and there, move the runners over to scoring position, hit and run to avoid double plays and pressure the defense, open holes in the infield.

    Don’t we have an active hitting coach?

    He is a 20 th century HOF manager. He is past his expiration date.

    It is inexplicable that they let Lynn pitch in the 6th. With his knee issues.

    But not a smart pitch to Jose Ramirez, a notorious fastball slugger and Sox killer. I think didn’t intend to throw a middle middle fastball, he just missed his location. He would have been better served with a pitch out of the zone.

    He has been wild in the strike zone.

    Lynn didn’t get the memo: don’t let Ramirez beat you. A fastball right down the middle on 3-2 and first base open was not a wise play.

    This is his main weakness as a lead off hitter.

    That moniker Guardians really sucks. It is pity to throw away the legacy, albeit at times crappy, and the long history of the Indians for some PC consideration.
  14. Right on. Eloy is not a 5 tool player like Robert.
