    Guess the Opening Day 25 Man

    Is Burdi going to be healthy to start the year? Or start on AAA IL?

    Ian Happ

    Me thinks if the Cubs would trade Happ for Colome he'd a Mariner. Or already on the Sox.

    Lol. Stailey sucks. Its likely Giolito sucks too, but he is a former #1 overall prospect and is just 24 years old. He also has an option. There is absolutely 100% zero reason for the Sox not to give Giolito 2019 to try to figure it out. I bet 29 other clubs would be happy to have Giolito. A good chunk would put him in AAA and pray for a revival there, but this isn't some garbage piece that no one would want.

    Eloy officially got paid

    Not really. He said that he's had an opportunity to move for work for sometime, but has been hesitant because he loves the Sox and wants the ability to take his kids to Sox games. But in the heat of the moment following a massive letdown and failure from our FO, he said he may finally pull the trigger. Slightly different.

    Agreed. I am all for Jay riding the pine pony in favor of Leury. New lineups until Leury breaks: RHP: Leury / Jay CF, Moncada 3B, Abreu DH, Alonso 1B, Castillo C, Eloy LF, Palka RF, Anderson SS, Sanchez 2B LHP: Jay / Leury RF, Sanchez 2B, Abreu 1B, Castillo C, Rondon DH, Eloy LF, Moncada 3B, Anderson SS, Engel CF

    Frare too. Hahn has done a very nice job assembling a crop of very interesting bullpen arms in Chicago and the upper minors. Credit where credit is due.

    Could be Frare too. Otherwise we'd be holding 3 lefties. I think Covey hangs unless he has a rough start to the season.

    That is a reasonable take on Nate. Herrera not so much. By the way - do you have any single post out of your 171 that aren't blatantly negative?

    3/24 Sox vs Indians, 2pm, NBCSC

    He has made 117 starts in his career. He debuted in 2011 and made 28 starts. He has matched or exceeded that number once since. He’s averaged less than 15 starts per season in his career. He could be solid this year if he stays healthy, but relying on that at this point is crazy.

    If Pineda makes 15 starts, it will be a minor miracle.

    Nicky still has at least 2 more years of options. Sure he's on the 40 man, but there is plenty of fat to trim before he was would be on the chopping block. I'd be very surprised if we've seen the last of Nicky in a Sox uni.

    Burr, Banuelos, Covey to Pen

    Hamilton would be in AAA or on AAA IL/DL. He isn't starting on MLB IL. Don't have options list in front of me but don't believe it is an issue with him.

    With Banuelos in the pen that means Santana is breaking with the club, they’re only going with 4 SP, or they’ll stack Covey/Banuelos as an opener for the 5th spot to start.

    Palk Smash!

    I genuinely hope that is Palka.

    I’m sure Ricky will let McCann have his shot at the 3 hole first, ya.
