    Leave Lamb's worthless ass on the bench, pinch hit Collins for Vaughn and let Madrigal hit.

    It’s Tim Fucking Anderson day!

    Name a guy on any good team who can only play 3B/1B, can't hit lefties at all, and can barely hit righties.

    Cleveland now 23 straight scoreless innings when not starting with a runner on 2nd.

    "He has options" is an excuse rebuilding teams use to make roster decisions, not contenders. Mendick was not on the team because Lamb was an insurance policy for Mercedes/Vaughn. Now we know that those two are good enough to squeeze out Lamb. As for LH power off the bench, whichever catcher isn't starting is LH with better power than Lamb. Engel will start in RF for Engel vs some LH starters and that gives another good power option against a RH reliever. Lamb is utterly useless at this point. Even moreso than Hamilton.

    Doesn't matter whether or not if it was intentional. If the fielder's motion caused the runner to come off the base, he's safe. However, that is umpire judgment and not reviewable.

    Hitting matters a lot. Plus, Mendick's defense isn't that bad. The reason Mendick started the season at the alternate site has nothing to do with his defense and everything to do with the Sox didn't know what they were going to get from Yermin and wanted Lamb as another DH option. There was never a plan for him to play 3B, especially when Moncada takes so few days off. Pinch runners are used so infrequently that a marginal difference in baserunning is the worst possible reason to keep a guy. Once Engel is back, the only way there are any starts for Hamilton is if Mercedes craters and Vaughn has to move to DH, and I don't see that happening. There is no place for Hamilton on this roster once Engel is back.

    Mendick and Leury aren't redundant. Mendick can play IF and can hit. Leury can play IF and can't fucking hit. Leury is closer to being redundant with Hamilton in that they both can play OF and can't hit.

    Switch-hitting versatility with Leury is non-existent. He hits worse vs RHP than most RH hitters, including Mendick. You don't lose positional versatility because Leury is still on the roster. You just have him as the 2nd backup option in the IF and OF rather than the 1st option in the IF.

    The 2B-SS-3B aren't going to play every day. Even in a best case scenario your backup IF is getting at least 1-2 starts per week. The value of Mendick over Garcia getting all those plate appearances outweighs the very rare situations where Hamilton pinch-running earns you a run that Garcia or Engel wouldn't get you. If you trust Giolito, Lynn and Rodon to continue working late into games, you can shorten the bullpen by one and keep both.

    Hamilton can't score from 2nd when Garcia is killing a rally because Mendick isn't there.

    Which is when Hamilton would be DFA.

    Engel and Garcia are both capable pinch runners and unlikely to both ever be in the lineup such that neither is available.
