    I do not expect them to be at full strength until next year.

    Not necessarily, as the 3 bats coming back and lighting it up would change things. However I'm not counting on it happening like so many others. I still will be watching through the playoffs but my expectations are pretty muted. I still enjoy watching Sox baseball even when they suck. Sports are more enjoyable to me when there are zero expectations and I just enjoy the ride.

    Don't get me wrong, The Sox have talent but their true talent level in a competitive division is fighting for the 2nd WC Spot in the AL rather than winning a division. Anything can happen in the playoffs but I think the talent gap between the Sox and the rest of the AL playoff field is just too high.

    I'll be surprised if they win more than one game in the playoffs. I'd feel differently if the majority of the pensmen weren't gascans. I could buy them being good when their 3 bats return if it was only the offense that was failing against good teams but the entire team is failing against playoff quality competition.

    What's their run differential against the teams they've played that will be in the playoffs? Their run differential is inflated by the shitty ALC.

    What's their run differential against teams over .500? I'd bet it's negative. They're 18-27 against teams over .500 and 2-11 on the road. They're not even competitive. It isn't just one series. They're beating up on shitty teams. So?

    I don't think that those guys will be themselves until next year. Too many people assume that Eloy/Robert/Grandal are going to come in and pick up right where they left off. It's not like Eloy and Robert are even lighting up the minors during their rehab stints.

    What the Brewers Series is Telling Us

    What this series is telling us is that the Sox are only a playoff team because the rest of the ALC isn't trying and the Twins pitching staff collapsed. What I keep seeing is that the Sox are not playoff caliber in any aspect of the game. Their offense isn't good enough, their SP are bum slayers and their bullpen is terrible outside of Hendriks/Kopech and sometimes Crochet, who is very hit or miss. I don't think that Eloy/Robert/Grandal will save them either.

    It was 16-24 at the ASB and they've gone 2-3 since.

    I think we're getting into an area where SP are getting fatigued because of the short season last year. There's a reason why a lot of teams are doing tandem stuff right now.

    I take back all of the defending of Bowman over the last few seasons. You guys were right, I was wrong. That fucker gave out the Seabrook contract TWICE!!!!!!!!! Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice...... Not only did he give a kings ransom for Jones.......he gave a kings ransom for someone not even close to worthy of that type of package. Bowman just killed the Hawks for the entirety of the 2020s.

    As much as I hate to say it, that type of behavior was pretty common in my youth. When I was in HS some kid on the wrestling team got violated with an object by other members of the team and the same things happened to him. Obviously it's wrong but there were very few innocent people when it came to that.

    I'm here to tell you that I'm in my mid 30s and most of the cultural shift happened over the last decade. As recently as the early 2000s the major networks were perfectly fine with using "gay" for something stupid/dumb on the Simpsons. It's Fox, so maybe I should put that note in there but it happened. "That's gay" for something stupid or dumb was pretty common ~15 years ago. People used to throw that around like people still threw the N word around in the 60s and 70s.

    Tell me you never used homophobic language against another man as a teen/college age guy and I'll call you a liar. I did it, everyone I know did it, I've been harrassed for "sounding gay" since I was in middle school and even though it's hurtful it is normal young male behavior in our culture. Should it stop, yes. Am I embarrassed and ashamed that I did some of those things, of course. Those that live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. Ever been dry humped by another dude without consent? It's happened to me multiple times. If this type of stuff never happened to you or you did it to someone else as a teen/young adult you're either lying or in denial. If you're indicting the Hawks players for this then you're indicting the overwhelming majority of males over 25. It's a widespread cultural issue. This is something that education should fix. I learned about how hurtful that speech was and I stopped. Understand that I in no way condone that behavior but I also have the common sense to realize that said behavior is relatively common among males age 16-24.

    Not sure if serious or sarcasm.
  22. Dude could still make a decent living in Japan's DH league if he wanted. Hopefully he comes to his senses and decides to go there. I don't think MLB is happening for him at this point though.
