    GT 6/3: SOX @ TB, 6:10 PM CDT, NBCSC

    Robert is still on his feet. That’s the only real positive change from last year’s team that limped into vacation. That pitching staff was lightning in a bottle. I hope so, but we have been watching baseball teams long enough to know what we’re looking at.

    Where are Hahn and KW?

    Although I grant you that JR had an relapse by hiring Tony. Hopefully he stops meddling with the baseball decisions

    Where are Hahn and KW?

    Fumny thing is, JR let these guys try this new thpe build despite being up there in age. Said he did it for the fans and the long term. There were a few years of losing invested to get to this team. That will make weak -willed people question what they are doing. I’m sorry this didn’t work yet, but please don’t go back to acquiring the Todd Fraziers and Adam LaRoaches and surrounding them with cheap pluggers. As bad as this is to watch, building upside teams with prospects is way more fun than grinding with teams of the past. Hahn and Kenny Williams seem like this is not who they really are though. They tried it like a second marriage to different type of woman that is totally incompatible. They all gots ta go. And JR has to stay worried about the long term future. Stay patient. But get these guys outa here, they can’t take the final steps Under all this pressure to win quick. They will make bad decisions.

    Weird. Is there such a thing as having a groin cramp? Groins don’t just completely go away in a couple days

    Montas gets Sox speculation

    The pitching isn’t the big problem. It would be just like the Sox to double down on the Kimbrel move a year after it blew up in their face.

    Montas gets Sox speculation

    They signed Harrison, and they got Leury. They will sink or swim with them no matter how bad that is. Who knows, maybe they are looking at Yolbert. That’s going to be the extent of improving SB

    Juan Soto would bump Sox to #9?

    We have Erick Hernandez. We’re good 🥸

    Sox vs Blue Jays 6:07, Giolito vs Gausman

    Pigs get fed, hogs get slaughtered. The bullpen tunnel vision has been a dysfunctional dynamic for this FO

    13 hits. They just don’t get around the bases enough. Remains to be seen if this is a feature not a bug.

    Optimism is fine. He didn’t look like he will be 100 100 in 3 weeks though. These things can linger

    Adam Engel's lesson of coming back too soon seems ignored. Groins always need extra time

    Would have been pretty easy had the Sox not tried to be cute at second base with Harrison. Trevor Story was there for the taking. He would slide right on over, and Yolbert would be a nice gap filler. Hopefully the Sox don't pay with losing the season, but cann't say they wouldn't deserve to

    Imho, they should take a hard look at the roster, and make a cold assessment about the talent on the team. If you’re assessment tells you this group comes up short, you don’t have the luxury of underpowered, yet wise “veterans”. You bring up your best people in the organization and let it ride. Some of the best, most loose teams have been groups of kids that don’t know any better. These guys are tauiite. /Austin Powers

    Cease and Graveman to Restricted List; Crick Up

    Aside from Burger, the other guys are only supporting actors. But you need a production first. Harrison and Mendick can go find other things to do while this team retools.

    Cease and Graveman to Restricted List; Crick Up

    I don’t see why not. The roster has been talked about as possibly disengaged, from Kuechel, to Ricky, to Stoney (Moncada), to Ozzie. It certainly can’t break what’s already broken, and you cross bridges when you come to them.

    Just in general, I have often wondered if the Sox would ever break up the Cubans 🤔

    Is that a fact?

    The international signings (outside of the massive Cuban contracts) is historically the biggest failure. And then they go ahead and trade Tatis for what they really love. But they dont draft well either. Although we thought they were on a bit of a nice first round run there with Rodon, Crochet, Vaughn and Madrigal

    When did we take the wrong turn?

    Yeah. And the Sox are the perfect franchise that should copy the Rays model.

    SS is a problem with no satisfactory solution. Who knows what they ultimately do with Sosa, but I think they like their MLB scrubs right now. I would DFA Harrison in a heartbeat and play Yolbert every day at 2B if he’s ready. The problem I am having is that the Sox have locked themselves into Harrison and Leury in 2022 for no good reason. They can launch someone at any time. They should get on with it. Or are we supposed to believe Harrison is some kind of essential veteran for a postseason run that may or may not happen?

    Looks like they are going with Mendick right now because they don’t want to disturb their elegant Leury/Harrison second base plan. Yolbert is more the long term solution they don’t seem to want to try.
