    Sure, PB are not a great stat to base a catchers defensive skill on, but look at his career. He is terrible compared to other catchers minor league stats. If you don't want to believe me, fine, but google him and see for yourself what the consensus is on him. From an Eric Logenhagen FG chat on 6/28/19:

    Just because a guy can throw hard doesn't make them a good catcher. Just google him. There are plenty of reports saying he is well below average behind the plate. Believe Y2Jimmy0, he's a DH. Just look at this year alone - 13 PB in just 45 games at catcher. Collins, who everyone also says is a future 1B, has just 3 in 32 games.

    Herrera to DL: Jimmy Cordero Recalled

    Cordero has actually put up some good numbers in Charlotte.

    A lot of new names. Honestly a little surprised Basabe fell so far. I figured some of the injuries he’s had would have been taken into consideration.

    Steve Stone with a dose of reality for Sox fans

    I don’t think anything Stone said was necessarily wrong. People should try to have a patient outlook at the way the rebuild is developing. That doesn’t mean you should not be critical either. I actually think this team has shown more growth this year than any of the previous ones, despite all the injuries throughout the system. The injuries to Jimenez, Anderson, and Rodon just point out the lack of depth right now, which is something that can be addressed as the team gets closer to their competitive window. I really dislike the house analogy he uses. I don’t think you can compare something like that to a fluid rebuild. Rebuilds are not linear IMO. There are absolutely ups and downs. I have serious doubts whether this FO can get to the finish line, but in their defense, they have surprised the hell out of me throughout the process. Robert signing was unheard of at the time. Eloy’s extension is the largest contraction team history to a guy who never even had a MLB at-bat. This offseason is going to be huge. If they fail to improve the team through FA again, it’s going to be hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
  6. I doubt it. Tilson was optioned, not DFA'd. They would need to open another 40-man spot to get him up here.

    Colome drawing "ample" trade interest

    As much as I agree with you that I'd love to see Nova off this team, who exactly do you suggest take his spot? Unfortunately, there really isn't any other options that are remotely capable to match his performance, let alone best him (i.e. Covey, Detwiler, Despaigne, Nicolino, Santiago, Roach, etc.). I think we are stuck with him.

    To Sell or Not to Sell?

    I was going to suggest this. They also fit perfectly from a platoon standpoint too.

    Charlie Tilson Optioned to Charlotte

    That leaves 2 players on the bench. I can’t see that happening without additional moves.

    Sox @ Royals - 715pm CT

    Good for Reed. He's making this game's line score look much more competitive.

    What did the Sox give Konerko? I'd think we could see something similar to that.

    Goins Called Up; Minaya Clears Waivers, Outrighted to AAA

    I may be in the minority on this, but I think Covey actually presents more future value to the Sox than Minaya. He's absolutely been terrible - not denying that, but the fact he's hit 98 with his fastball while rehabbing in Charlotte peaks my interest as a potential arm out of the pen. I'd like to see what he could do knowing he's only out there for 3 outs and unload. Minaya seems like your typical run-of-the-mill arm that comes and goes for every organization.

    Goins Called Up; Minaya Clears Waivers, Outrighted to AAA

    I’ve seen enough of him that I wouldn’t lose sleep if we never see him pitch in a Sox uniform again.

    What a surprise to all of us no one wanted Minaya.
