  1. Lance Lynn versus Alex Cobb. Sox 4-1 all time in San Fran.

    Oscar Colas Story (Is this true?)

    Man you are fragile. One disagreement and you meltdown. Calm down Oscar. The Sox took a middle ground with Colas that recognized his lack of high experience and complete lack of playing time going back to the end of 2019. They are literally splitting the difference between an ACTUAL high level international pro who has proven himself at the highest levels outside of the US, and some unnamed player who is getting his first American pro ball experience. Like I said it is obvious he is ready for AA, but there is also no need to treat him like Seiya Suzuki.

    Oscar Colas Story (Is this true?)

    Sure. A kid that young starts out in rookie ball, not in High A. That is a higher assignment than any 18 year old would get.

    Great Expectations

    Dumb? Sure. You can easily argue that. But cheap and wimpy? No. They are still spending money, you just don't like how, so you have narrowed down the definition of "spending" until find one you can get upset about. Again.

    Oscar Colas Story (Is this true?)

    The problem is he has no real "major" league experience. Almost all of his time in Japan was in their minor league system. The other guys you are talking about have a ton more ABs professionally, and they also have them more recently. I get it is time to move the kid up a level, but to compare him to a guy who had 1000 ABs in the last two seasons in the top Japanese league when Colas had exactly 0 during that same time frame isn't and apples to apples comparison.

    Seeing our trash outfield play I can see how he could feel that way.

    That doesn't even make sense.

    Cool, then we don't need him anyway.

    Hopefully Zach is making those calls now. I mean if the guy wants to come here, the city would burn if ownership said no.

    I get this is still a thing, but if the franchise is spending money at large, they aren't cheap.

    This one sounds like a historic Sox pick. Who knows what our new draft rooms are like these days though.

    When our kids were young we couldn't afford it. We sent our kids to a daycare for their young years that doubled as a preschool.

    This is pretty much Sox fans in 2022.

    Oscar Colas Story (Is this true?)

    Here's the thing. No one said anything about this. There has been no denial, no acknowledgement. Nothing. If it was a misunderstanding, I would imagine someone would have said so. That's easy to fix. If Colas doesn't say it, you shovel it to one of your preferred scribes to do it for you.

    Fire Tony Chant

    The best way to have people tolerate Tony is obviously to mock them for not being old. What if I told you that age has nothing to do with maturity, and a guy like Tony is a prime example with his multiple arrests and race based accusations, among his history? But apparently you are too old for that conversation.

    I will say there has been a balancing act between trying to get more out of his starters and not destroying his pen. That bullpen has been an injury riddled mess for so much of the season that sometimes you HAVE to get more out of your starters, even if you really want to go to the pen. So many sore arms and injuries make it a lot more difficult than "he should have gone to the pen" I get WAY more upset about the situational stuff, and really not having a grasp of baseballs rules, etc.
