    Have we heard any real update on Yaz recently? Is he nearing a return?
  2. O’s probably like the 4th or 5th best team left on the Sox schedule. It’s that weak. Around half of our remaining schedule is against the dregs of the MLB. But yeah…gotta make hay and Sox haven’t to this point against anyone but Det.

    Eloy rehab starts again 6/21

    I agree but Sox don’t need more DHs. They should have acquired a real OF that hit LH not those 2. We saw how awful Pederson is in the OF this weekend.

    Eloy rehab starts again 6/21

    Yeah I mean Burger has hardly played since Yoan came up. AV being unable to play OF right now is certainly part of that. But may as well being Eloy up. Eloy, Engel and Hendriks up with Burger, Haseley and Lambert optioned.

    Oscar Colas Story (Is this true?)

    23.5 year old with an .850 ops in A+ ball? Yeah…I’d say he’s due for a promotion to AA.

    Oscar Colas Story (Is this true?)

    Back to the original topic, hopefully Sox move Colas up to AA this week. Social media hissy fit aside, he’s earned it.
  7. Hendriks and Engel for sure today. Maybe Eloy. Yaz should be soon as well but doubtful today.
  8. Good thing we didn’t salary dump Giolito.
  9. Sox should really try to get Touki Toussiant and throw him in the pen. Just DFAd.
  10. Went to a concert last night so wasn’t able to watch. Was TLR using Banks as dumb as it looked in the box score? I assume there were a couple lefties coming up and we’re not exactly flush with great pen options atm, but Banks shouldn’t even be in the big leagues let alone pitching high leverage innings.

    Just watching highlights and Moncada hit a missile to the track that Mike Yaz made an incredible catch. I would image the xBA was quite high. Sox need Moncada…keep running him out there.

    Great Expectations

    I watch a ton of twins baseball. All my friends are twins fans. I grew up in MN. I know folks in their FO. I know more about the Twins than most Twins fans. This is an outrageous list from ever the most optimistic Twins fan.

    Oscar Colas Story (Is this true?)

    Dudes not even a top 100 prospect. Maybe he should pump the breaks a bit if that’s his opinion. I am excited for the guy, but it’s not he’s some can’t miss guy. That said, there are several overdue promotions in the minors and Colas is high on the list.

    Who should Sox fear the most, CLE or Minny?

    Twins are a clusterfuck. Thing you love to see.

    Shane Riordan's interview with Rick Hahn

    Yeah, problem is if you grill him you’re never going to get the opportunity again. But I agree.
