    Dane Dunning had Tommy John today

    Fair enough, you're the doctor here, and therefore the person whose opinion is most valid. I'm annoyed that 9 months were essentially wasted, but like I said several times already, it's not like this team is on the verge of competing, so the time he misses isn't going to be important.

    I never said I know more than them. I was lamenting the additional recovery time being essentially wasted with the benefit of hindsight. Like I said, though, it doesn't matter much because this organization is probably going to see 2-3 more top 5 picks anyway.

    They could've taken an approach of "any tear means surgery", in which case it might have been done last June. It's not that big of a deal (because this team is likely to have at least 2-3 more top 5 picks), but to pretend the front office is above criticism here is disingenuous.

    If it was done last June he'd be back by the end of this year.

    Unless I'm reading it wrong, this says the recovery timetable can be as short as 9 months.

    2019 MLB draft thread

    I'll be happy if any combo of Vaughn, Witt, and Abrams goes top 2. The Sox need Adley Rutschman.

    Who is your top 2019-20 free agent target

    1) I'll believe Robert stays healthy for a full season when I see it. 2) Robert could have a great year and not make it to MLB until mid-late 2020. 3) Bogaerts is a better player than Anderson. I could also move Tim to 2B, but his athleticism has less value there, and then he's looking at potentially being benched for Madrigal. If I'm making room for Bogaerts, however, Anderson isn't much of a consideration, other than trying to find him a different spot where he can get PT.

    No, what gives you that impression?

    Cole on the pitching side, Bogaerts on the hitting side (move Anderson to CF), Sox likely won't get either.

    Thinking of cheering for the Cubs next year

    My definition is accurate, not lousy. A fairweather fan is someone who only supports a team when they're good. There's nothing inherently wrong with that, but in my opinion it detracts from the experience of watching sports. I enjoy following my team through thick and thin, and the losing seasons just make winning so much sweeter.

    Thinking of cheering for the Cubs next year

    Your logic is that you want to root for the other team because they're winning more consistently. That is the definition of fairweather fan.

    Thanks for sharing your opinion. Ours obviously differ a great deal.

    Don't let the door hit you on the way out, fairweather.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    I could believe CF, the only person who has ever legitimately suggested Catcher is Greg, and, well, that's Greg.

    They're moving Anderson to CF?
