    Jake Burger 4 DH!

    I totally agree with you. They brought up Goodwin and Sheets. Burger was and is batting better than both of them at Charlotte. Burger has persevered through so many injuries and I have nothing but total respect for him not giving up and keep coming back. He deserves a shot up here, especially as a former #1 draft pick.

    I like this idea. You are right it is a horrible outfield with Goodwin, Vaughn and Sheets. Case in point Goodwin and Sheets both misjudging flyballs last night.

    Giolito has thoughts about Donaldsons comments

    WTG Giolito! Donaldson is a jerk. He also called out Garret Cole of the NYY.

    Bummer, Marshall to IL; Kopech back, Fry up

    It's also a lack of getting stretched and properly warmed up before each at bat. Hence why Abreu never pulls his hamstrings because he is always doing stretching, knee bends and jumping up and down before each at bat. The players do stretch before the game, but many of them don't do much or any stretching after the game starts.

    At our rate I'm sure we will be the new official record holder for hamstring injuries by the end of the season.

    Marshall should be DFA and not on DL. Thank god Kopech is at least back!

    Is it time to rebuild the rebuild?

    Yes, but here is the good news, going into today's 2nd Pittsburg game we are 27-10 against teams under .500. We have 43 of 89 games left in the season against teams currently under .500. Don't forget once we get Kopech back soon and Robert and Eloy also back, we should be fine playing in one of the weakest divisions in baseball.

    Is it time to rebuild the rebuild?

    Good thing you're not affiliated with the Knee Jerk Reaction or Glass Half Empty clubs. Even though Rick Hahn has told us that Eloy and Robert are ahead of schedule and both due back by possibly late July...you are still a pessimist and doubter they are not returning. Btw, the Indians W-L record is 14-15 against teams this year above .500. It seems Cleveland plays that same brutal 7 game stretch our Sox just played, starting July 1 with 4 games vs. Houston and then followed by 3 games vs. Tampa Bay. We are already in the rebuild and it's going fine. Hahn has the Sox set up to win now and for the next several years. The only thing that could ruin that is TLR. In fact, instead of selling off, the Sox should be Buyers before the trade deadline and go all in! Finally, after today's game we have the next 7 games at home where we are 27-12.

    I know right...that's because TLR knows how valuable Leury is with his whopping .238 BA and more importantly his amazing and productive .299 OBP which is so critical for a leadoff hitter.

    That article was written only after his 3rd game at Charlotte. Of course the Sox medical staff was monitoring his progress, as they do with any rehab start for someone at triple A. However Engel played 4 more games in Charlotte without any setbacks and thus was deemed 100 percent ready to come back up. As that article stated, the medical staff told Engel he’s unlikely to reinjure himself even if he still experiences pain for a while. There shouldn’t be anything on the field he can’t do. This is nonsense Engel is being rested for a .244 hitter from Triple A, when in fact Engel is hot going 3-7 and 2 HR's in last two games. I also highly doubt Goodwin is a better CF defensively than Engel

    Madrigal goes on 60 day DL, Hamstring tear: Goodwin recalled

    I think is good optimistic news. If we get Eloy and Robert back by late Aug, early Sept, we will be ok. Hopefully we get Nick back too. We play in the weakest division in baseball. As long as we don't lose any pitchers, we should be able to hang on to first place until we get them back.

    Where do you come up with these crazy assumptions? It has never been published anywhere by the Sox that Engel is playing under a 100 percent recovery. Here is a quote from Engel's Twitter feed after the game he took away the home run. "As far as being on the field, I feel about as 100 percent as I can be," Engel said before the game. "I don’t think that my hamstring — from a strength standpoint — I’m not going to be maxing a leg curl in the next couple weeks. But I’m able to run full speed and do everything I need to do on a baseball field, so I’m excited to play." Plus when did anyone say that Engel wouldn't being playing full time? What CF on this team is better than him or deserves more playing time?

    Will Hahn be more active this deadline?

    He was already going downhill last year with the Nationals, as he only hit .226 last year in the shortened '20 season.

    I agree Goodwin batting 2nd is a joke. However Engel looked good so far and he was starting to heat up going 3-7 the last 2 games with 2 HR's. It make no sense to rest him, unless he was injured and he isn't injured or hurting. If he was injured or hurting it would have been mentioned. I know he is coming off a bad hamstring injury, but the fact they took so long before bringing him back, means they made sure he was 100 percent healthy so they wouldn't have a setback.. Once Engel came back, he needed to play. My god, he only played 5 games.

    This is a joke! Why isn't Engel in CF? He has played a perfect CF defensively as we expected and has 2 HR's in 5 games. Goodwin was hitting .244 BA in Triple A Charlotte. Are you kidding me...this is insanely stupid. Oh I get it, he cant hit in Triple A, but hey don't worry, Goodwin will improve and hit much higher at the ML level. We didn't need a CF brought up...we needed a 2B brought up.
