    Should the sox use kopech and VV as a tandem?

    I feel there's a reason 6-man rotations are basically never used. The pitchers don't like it and it doesn't work.

    Let's talk Lenyn

    https://www.baseball-reference.com/register/player.fcgi?id=gonzal002rom&type=bgl&year=2021 Link above to Romy's split last year. He started off hot in May, then had a more mediocre June. Some months he killed it, like in August (1.076 OPS in 23 games). What's notable about Lenyn is he is 2 years younger than Romy was, he hasn't been cooled off yet while Romy had by now, and his SO% is far superior than Romy's was. Romy had the better BB% in AA (11%), but his SO% was much higher (28.2%). I'm no minor league expert compared to others here, but I understand a high SO% can be telling in regards to how certain players will perform at a higher level. Leury's improvement to a 13.2% SO% is huge. Seems like he's made some great adjustments. Really hope he keeps it up down in AA.
  3. I'm glad they are least suspended him. I wasn't sure they would. At bare minimum, Josh Donaldson's comment was douchey and you have to be a dope to not see the racial undertones behind it or how a black player could take offense to it. I think Donaldson is that douchey dope. He's so fixated on being a dickhead that he tried getting under TA's skin, but didn't even realize how it could be received or the blowback he would get.

    The same deadspin that incorrectly went after the biracial 49ers coach Mike McDaniel saying that he shouldn't be a head coach because he is white? I don't understand how the new Deadspin has any readers.

    Let's talk Lenyn

    Lenyn Sosa was always a guy that hit pretty decently at each level given his age. He's always been younger for his level. Most scouting reports I read said that he isn't overly athletic, and his ceiling is limited. Usually they peg him as a future utility player. However, this year he is absolutely demolishing the ball while taking the difficult jump to AA. In 38 games (decent sample size), he's batting .368, .431 OBP, .594 SLG, 1.025 OPS. He has 9 HRs so far. He's got a wRC+ of 171. 7.5% BB% and a respectable 13.2% SO%. All while being 22 years old in AA. Is it time we look at him as more than a future utility player? His offense looks ridiculous so far this year. Can he potentially be our future 2B if Yolbert doesn't cut it?

    The anti-social network is such a great episode. I can't believe it came out 11 years ago. Makes me feel old.

    Does the manager get some credit for this?

    Josh Donaldson called Tim Anderson "Jackie"

    Lolol, the term that most Hispanic/Latino people hate and actually find offensive. Always gives me a chuckle seeing somebody use it.

    Imagine the talent haul the team could get. It would be unprecedented.

    He used to be able to do it when he first made the league.

    Are they silencing the audio because there are some Jackie chants?
