    OT: Sale

    In hindsight, it appears they probably did. EDIT: JFC I cannot edit this text how I want it. FFS. The last paragraph is obviously mine. From Sale via SoSH:

    OT: Sale

    Something is wrong in the shoulder if he keeps ramping up and then missing starts due to inflammation. Seems a bit similar to what Rodon went through last year. edit: wow, did not know he was limited to 68 pitches in the one start he made after his initial DL stint. Yea something is wrong and it's more than just the usual soreness it appears.

    God it would be nice to see TA and Yoan finish the year strong. Same with Lopez and Gio.

    Heyman: Eloy/Kopech may not be promoted this year

    Don't think one has anything to do with the other really. I think this org is just chickenshit sometimes.

    Heyman: Eloy/Kopech may not be promoted this year

    I'm currently in the "acceptance" phase. Anger has left me.

    Well, agree, but get ready. Kopech is Sale 2.0 in mind and body. We can only hope Kopech never suffers a broken foot in spring training while..."helping a friend move" or something.

    I mean, it totally will. Like at the Acuna situation. Baseball is stupid and Kopech is a symptom.

    Sox fans are bored. That is my takeaway from this thread. Shame about service time rules.

    it's in his head and I don't blame him. Never seen a season long screw job like this. It's probably about the difference in 50 OPS points.

    One of the most important aspects a hitting coach brings is Gravitas, with a big G. I have a hard time seeing these guys like Moncada or even Avi really listening to Todd because Todd is a nobody really. I'd rather bring in someone like Thome that can look these kids in the face and say "600 HR", listen up.

    I'm done with the "calm presence" types. It's not working. Ventura let Eaton and Sale walk all over him and whatever "calming influence" Renteria is supposed to bring obviously isn't working for these kids either. I don't think a manager contributes much to development but if Rickie can't get these young latin kids ready to play (or any of them really) he needs to go. Way too many bad ABs this 2nd half, but with Moncada and Yolmer especially.

    At this point he needs to clear his head and start again next year. Sadly, TA is having an awful 2nd half as well at the dish. Those guys have gone from a potential 8-10 WAR middle infield to looking like 2-3 WAR types at best the last couple months. I'm ready to move on from Todd as well.
