    The $$$$ will be spent!

    He didn't have major shoulder surgery. He had severe bursitis. they had to go in there and cut the bursa sacs in his shoulder to relieve the pain and let the bursa sacs heal. He had no structural issues when they were in there. As far as shoulder surgery goes, it was as benign as it gets. They probably only went in there because it wasn't getting better with antibiotics.

    I would have traded him as well. I was hoping they would have done so. I thought the Braves were a good match, I would have done it for Toussaint and Gohara and been done with it.

    100% Agreed. I don't think they're going to cut bait, but they might. I think they're just going to keep him until he reaches FA and then let him walk.

    He was just coming off of shoulder surgery and had very little value. They couldn't have moved him during the season, you could argue they should have moved him this past offseason, but again who would have paid for him? Rodon is and has been practically worthless in trade because of his lack of durability. It is what it is.

    He's no longer part of the Sox long term plans, IMO. He's going to hit the FA market regardless, given that Boras is his agent. The Sox need to prepare for 2020 without him. They can stretch him out in 2021 if they want to, but for 2020 they need to have that spot occupied by a competent, semi durable starter. Maybe they can give him starts when they have to shut down Kopech toward the end of the season, but they should work him for longer stints out of the bullpen to start, until he needs to replace either Kopech or Cease.

    I think the Sox should try Rodon in the bullpen when he gets back. He can't stay healthy as a starter. I'm on board with those who think the Sox should go after a top starter(Cole/Bumgarner/Strasburg) and a back end starter( I really like the Alex Wood suggestions) I'm actually ok with going after Strasburg near the TDL and hoping that he opts in, and if he doesn't give him an extra year at 20M to entice him to do so. He shouldn't cost all that much in prospect capital. I don't even think it would take one of the Sox top 100 guys to get it done.
  7. Getting close to the Florida Swing, which is my favorite non-major time of year in Golf. Love the Honda and Palmer tournaments. This year the Players Championship returns to the FL Swing, which makes it even better. fi Meanwhile at Riviera, Tiger Woods started his 3rd round with 3 birdies and an eagle thru 4 holes, before play was suspended for darkness. JMO: Justin Thomas is really good at golf but is also really unlikeable.

    6/23- Sox at Rangers, 2:05, WGN

    Probably going to GIDP, because White Sox things.
  9. I think the Sox should look into trading for a SP. Who are some long term targets that could be available at the TDL or this offseason?

    Bold strategy, Cotton. Let's see how it pays off. 😀

    Like I said earlier, the only reason they're this close is because of the bullpen. The rotation outside of Giolito is beyond awful.

    Just glad he's not on Cleveland anymore.

    This fucking blows. Every time the Sox get within a game of .500 they lose, and then when they actually get there they lose two in a row.

    Yonder shouldn't take the bat off his shoulder. Leclerc has no command whatsoever.

    Dammit. That was an absolute hanger.

    Leclerc sucks. I had him on 2/3 of my fantasy teams and I had to drop him.

    Yes, even though he's sitting 93-94 this year instead of 96-97 last year. He really must have an elite spin rate on his fastball. The Sox bullpen is the only reason they're even close to .500 Despite Herrera sucking for the month of May, the bullpen has been pretty good for the majority of the season.

    Then the mental errors need to end. Someone tell him to put in some work this offseason.

    This. He might not be a SS. That might be the actual hole, not RF. Timmy can play CF and Robert can play RF.

    How in the hell could Vegas only have the O/U at 10.5? I guess they weren't expecting the Sox to score off of Lynn.
