    Rodon TJS

    Considering the way things have gone for the Sox they will just cut ties with him and he will go on to somewhere else being everything they thought he would be. A franchise poorly run usually doesn't catch the good breaks either.

    Stroman: I stand with Tim Anderson

    Yeah all those blacks sticking up for one another. It’s crazy. Smh

    As bitter and angry as I still am I do at least feel really proud of of Yoan and Tim this year. They are totally killing it. Hopefully they can continue on this path to give us something to salvage going into next year.
  4. The FO isnt going to catch nearly enough heat for this complete disaster as they should because during this season the anger will just turn to indifference from the fan. The large majority just wont care about the Sox and wont pay attention. Sox will still make money some how as they have and eventually years down the line when they have a semi-competitive team the fan will return. They come out of this perfectly. They only care about their money, they shown that, and their money looks pretty damn nice.

    And I cant even really get on the players. In baseball you dont get better just because you try harder. You either have it or you dont. If you suck its the FO fault for having you in their plans and its the managers fault for rolling your suckage out there everyday.

    Yeah, the development hasn't existed. Not even Rodon for that matter.

    Sox FO should be completely embarrassed to what they have done. This isn't the natural progression of a successful rebuild. This is evidence of a failed organizational plan that will continue until the leadership has changed.

    FO had the foresight to ensure the number one pick next year. Great job Hahn.

    I unfortunately do not have the butterflies that I annually get this time every year (thanks Sox FO) but I do feel pretty happy to know that baseball is back. Its a nice distraction that is there day in and day out always having a game played somewhere.

    Ian Happ

    The Cubs aren’t trading an asset at a low point. They still value him greatly I’m sure. He’s just getting some time down there as a swift kick in the rear to work on some things like Schwarber did.

    If they replaced that hour of Bernstein and McKnight with someone who was not analytical, which you implied you would be missing out on, then I could see your point. But they didn’t, that hour is replaced with Laurence who is also analytical.

    Laurence is no slouch when it comes to analytics.

    It’s not just them though. Even the guys like barstool Dave who was ready to riot at the Rate the day Machado signed with the Pads now sits and has a nice friendly conversation with Hahn and is all back on their side. It’s not just him though it’s everyone. Even Laurence Holmes plays nice. It’s fine, it’s their livelihood and they want to make sure they don’t jeopardize it by making enemies.
