  1. It's disappointing that the Sox are being so secretive about these games. A team like the Mariners (for example) is tweeting about full box scores that include exit velocity for hitters. Just cluing beat writers and fans into what's going on would be nice.

    Sox vs Twins 9/17 1:10

    Why on earth is Madrigal trying to bunt? Yikes.

    Trade Watch Rumor

    The Padres still have one of the best farm systems in baseball. It's fair to question these trades, but they certainly aren't burning anything down.

    Trade Watch Rumor

    My first thought was the Diamondbacks because of Bradley. If Heuer is to be traded, I think that adds high leverage reliever to the list of the Sox needs.

    Trade Watch Rumor

    Goes without saying, but they better be getting something nice if Heuer is included in the deal. I wouldn't want to be subtracting from the major league roster right now.

    His exit velocity numbers are totally fine. He can be an awesome hitter with the 86.5 average EV & 112 max EV that we've seen. Madrigal hits the ball harder than he gets credit for.

    Realistic trade candidates AKA The Lynnsanity Thread

    If the Sox are willing to give up on Mazara, Gallo would be a very interesting player to consider.

    Dunning's slider looks so filthy. I didn't expect to see *this*, wow.

    Realistic trade candidates AKA The Lynnsanity Thread

    Off topic, but Bauer has said that he's never going to sign a long-term deal and he'll only do 1 year deals as a free agent in perpetuity until he retires. I am fascinated to see if he ends up going through with that.

    The Sox (seemingly) being aggressive at the deadline gives me confidence that Reinsdorf won't be looking to slash payroll like our worst fears would lead us to believe. But perhaps that is just wishful thinking.

    Realistic trade candidates AKA The Lynnsanity Thread

    Fangraphs has Gio tied for 5th in projected WAR for the rest of this season. Aside from Gerrit Cole & Bieber, there's no healthy pitcher I think you can argue is *clearly* a better option Giolito. If the Sox can't feel comfortable with him in a playoff game, okay, but that means only 2 AL teams have *any* pitchers they can feel good about then too.

    Realistic trade candidates AKA The Lynnsanity Thread

    We have no idea how serious Milwaukee would be about potentially trading Woodruff or Josh Hader. Of the guys the Sox have been "credibly" linked with, Lynn has the most trade value, but giving up one of Kopech or Vaughn for 1 full season + (hopefully) 2 months of him seems completely absurd to me. Even if the Sox *want* to make their version of acquiring Chris Sale or Adam Eaton, there's no guarantee that player is available right now. The rumors we're hearing right now suggest no one of that caliber is being shopped at the moment.

    Hader's velocity is down by over 1 MPH, his strikeouts are down, walks are way up. Only 9 strikes in 32 pitches before getting pulled tonight. Odds are he's fine, but I'd feel uneasy about trading for him right now.

    Kopech's stuff looked all the way back in instructs last year + the one glimpse we got of him in Spring Training this season. I think giving him up for a non ace/star player with many years of team control would be a huge mistake.

    Trade deadline looming

    Fangraphs has Marsh as the #35 prospect in baseball. What can the Sox trade to acquire someone like that? Kopech perhaps, but trading him right now seems like it might be difficult.
