    As Meatloaf said, "2 out of 3 ain't bad"

    Sox vs Twins. 9/14 - 7:10

    That leads me to our bullpen. I know bullpens are used differently these days. It is getting normal to see teams roll out 3-4 innings for the 6-9th. But I still think the percentages make it more likely that a reliever can blow a game because he is having an off-day. We used to see a starter go 7 and a set up man do the 8th and the closer the 9th. Now instead of 2 "relievers" we often see 4. Last night we saw Heuer stumble but Marshall saved him. But Rogers stumbles and blew the game. I think overall we have seen our pen use multiple relievers in close games and overall they have done a very good job. specially when the starter is out in the 5-6th inning.

    Just put Moncada on the IL already....

    That makes no sense. The Sox have a Trainer and Training staff. They along w some input from the player would decide if a player should be in the lineup, on the bench or on the IL. I don't think the FO would allow the manager to use a player if the Trainer feels they should not.

    The grandal hate is vastly overblown

    Grandal should not be hitting 3rd, Robert should. He is struggling w the bat and he strikes out at a high %. The lefty/righty lineup construction does not work if the lefty is struggling while Robert is exploding.

    He also has a history of struggling in 2nd half of the season. Now this year is totally different with only a half-season and he is splitting catching time w McCann. But unfortunately he has started slower than he normally does so it is hard to predict how he will finish.
  6. I think the combo of Giolito and Keuchel should prevent that

    I would also say 2/3 of Minny's lineup are automatic outs.
  8. Agree unless McCann wants to be "he catcher" or a team. Also , McCann might cost too much compared to a team that wants him as their #1.

    Hopefully Robert gets another AB w a runner on
  10. I would add that Kopech has some issues/questions surrounding him which may deflate his value. Not sure the Sox want to trade "slightly damaged goods" as opposed to waiting a year and see what Kopech we have next spring.

    Sox vs KC 8/29 game thread 1:10 first pitch

    Isn't that a decision of the training staff?
  12. Gio has come a long way from DC. Congrats

    I think Abreu will move to DH when Vaughn is ready. But as I posted recently, what about Eloy. How long will he play LF ? Good problem though to have as opposed to our RF future?

    Abreu is on fire. Looks like Hahn made a very good decision on that contract.
