    You have to start McCann for now

    He also leads the team in walks, and is third on the team (behind TA and just behind Jose) with a VERY good .357 OBP. This team desperately needed guys who can get on base and see pitches. It also desperately needed some balance. Yasmani provides both. As a big supporter of bringing Grandal on board, I won’t sit here and say I am tickled with his performance this year. But this is who Grandal is and always has been. An elite OBP switch hitting catcher who is also an above average framer and receiver. People who were expecting him to hit .280+ and not strike out a lot frankly just didn’t know his game very well.

    Magic Number: Playoffs - 0; Division - 4

    I’m with ya. He’s been tough to watch this year. Seems likely he’s at 50% at best. Hope we get 2019 Moncada in 21.

    Q traded to Cubs/Jimenez, Cease ++ to Sox

    He’s a great fit.

    Sox vs Twins 9/17 1:10

    What a pitiful at bat.

    Thanks. So Rodon tomorrow and Bummer early next week.

    I actually agree that playing Engel everyday isn’t the answer, but I would play him more. I don’t think Sox should cut Mazara today or anything, but he’s not returning next season, that I’m confident of.

    Sox vs Twins 9/17 1:10

    Kind of a big game. A 3 game lead with Twins only having 8 to play is close to insurmountable. Twins would have to go 7-1 to Sox 4-6 the rest of the way to pass them if the Sox win today. A win comes very close to locking up division. I hate trotting our ReyLo, but lining up Keuchel for playoffs IS more important. Still stings. Especially for me personally as all my friends are Twins fans and I want nothing more than a shove a huge W in their face today.

    When are Rodon and Bummers 45 days up?
  9. ChiSox59


    Lol, Ray - there is a zero percent chance Mazara is back next year. He’s going to be relatively expensive at $7-8M. Zero chance he’s back.

    Let it go dude. Enjoy what’s in front of you.

    Sox vs Twins. 9/16 - 7:10

    It hasn’t been pretty for awhile. But he’s still a well above average player even in his current state. He’s getting invaluable experience and will certainly improve. Hope something clicks before the playoffs tho.

    Could TA finish season with a .400 BA?

    I don't think its possible, really. But I'd love to see him do it.

    Tim Anderson Trade Value (Fangraphs Trade Value Series)

    Anyone fry this dingbat on twitter for this terrible take?

    Jonathan Stiever Discussion Thread

    I haven’t studied the pitching rotation to see how to lineup up Gio and Keuchel for the playoffs, but maybe they’re going to go with a 6 man rotation to close out the season to help facilitate that. With ReyLo and JS still on the active roster, appears they’ll both make a start this weekend. Otherwise what’s the point of holding them up?
