    Urquidy won't have an easier start all year. This has been brutal.

    Hahn was smart to quit while he was ahead on Colome & McCann. I'd be fine doing the same with Cueto. I don't think this is a Rodon situation at all.

    Cueto's ability to pitch out of any situation is pretty remarkable

    Gotta have a scapegoat to fire for not winning the division. Then he'll be replaced by someone who preaches the same message and nothing will fundamentally change.

    Brutal game for Harrison

    Yoan has enough power to still hit HR's, but it's got to be to the pull side. He hits way too many fly balls to deep center and the opposite field.

    People don't like the injury excuse, but I'm sure that's a huge part of it. The Sox playing him every day & batting him this high in the order isn't fair to Grandal or the team at this point.

    2 more singles and Eloy will finally score

    I'm fine with playing him at 1B or DH. But he gives back all of the value you get from his bat by playing him in the outfield. Same with Vaughn.

    It'd be so nice to have bat speed metrics publicly available. I agree his bat looks much slower than it used to be, but it would be nice to know for certain. I've read about hitters (Nolan Arenando and Lars Nootbaar) going to driveline to increase bat speed and they've gotten great results from it. I'd love to see Yoan do something like that over the winter because there's no way the Sox have the coaches to help him with that in the org.

    Billy Martin in 2022 would be an upgrade over Tony

    I know you aren't an Engel guy, but he'd be more valuable playing in the OF than Sheets. Even against righties.

    I agree but he's such a negative in RF and on the bases that you can't ever play him anywhere except 1B or DH.

    Hitting tons of groundballs and to the opposite field will do that. Unfortunately, that's also a big part of why the offense is broken and can't score any runs

    Gotta keep finding ways to get Gavin Sheets and his -0.6 fWAR in the lineup every day

    If you only build around perfect players then you'll never be able to field a team.

    Pump pitches right down the middle and Sox hitters won't hurt you. Throw them way off the plate and they'll flail away.

    He's frustrating but still a more valuable one than Pollock.

    TA is and was a better hitter than Pollock. He also gets on base more and is a better base runner. I get TA isn't the ideal profile for a lead off hitter, but obviously Pollock isn't at this point of his career either.

    TA's OBP is still like 40 points higher than Pollock's. Let's not get crazy.

    I don't love batting the sub 300 OBP guy lead off but it's not like there are many good options

    At least Pollock is finally starting to hit righties
