    Good god Edwin...swinging at 1st pitch breaking ball???

    8/2 Sox vs Royals GT

    Ughh...can’t lose this game because we can’t advance runners. This seriously needs to be addressed. Shouldn’t be that hard for major league hitters to at least produce a sac fly

    No reason for delmonico to be in the majors.

    These bounce plays are killing me...bet the over thinking this would be high scoring

    8/1 Sox vs Royals GT

    Why would you take bummer out at 20 pitches and no one on?

    Holy crap I was hoping that would be a bloop over the shortstop and it ended up 300 feet in the gap

    Madrigal has been the best player for the royals so far

    8/1 Sox vs Royals GT

    Can’t believe this game is still 5-0. Horrible situational hitting. Should be at least 7. Hopefully doesn’t come back to haunt us. Don’t exactly feel great about Gio going through the lineup too many times

    Engel just pulled the wild card. Wtf was that??

    7/29 Sox vs Indians GT

    Tim is pressing And also, Engel and McCann should be in the lineup a lot more

    This season has just been a kick in the nuts so far

    How on earth are they getting dominated by Plutko and his 92 mph fastball?

    If we are going to carry Collins on the roster I say just DH McCann whenever either Encarnacion or Abreu rest. Collins should be good enough as an emergency catcher.

    Ozzie calling out Ricky's lineups

    Lol calm damn there sparky. It's not an insult, it doesn't make the season that did happen any less amazing...but yes the 05 team was a fluke, as in highly likely to be repeated. A lot of things came together that year that don't usually happen to a team all in 1 season, especially in the pitching staff. Fluke doesn't have to mean bad, you're taking the Dilfer reference too literal (or it was just a bad reference). That Ravens team was also incredible, regardless who their QB was.

    Lets's hope the bats are hot today.

    Ozzie calling out Ricky's lineups

    Did and will always love the '05 team...but they are pretty much the "Trent Dilfer has a ring" of the MLB. It was a lucky outlier of a season. It would be nearly impossible to replicate the success of that team. And as someone else said, just say no to both Ricky and Ozzie.
  18. I’m not in the overly dramatic crowd...at the end of the day these are highly paid professionals that chose to assume the known risk. BUT yeah...this probably needs to be just stopped at this point. There was no planning for any of this. MLB pretty much stuck their heads in the sand and pretended that it wasn’t obvious this would happen. 3rd time won’t be the charm, just wrap up 2020 and call it a lost cause. Teams losing good players from their lineups on a weekly basis makes this already asterisk season even less meaningful. And hopefully the NFL is watching this and getting a grip on reality. Figure out a bubble situation or the season ain’t happening
  19. Florida is 1 of the most infected places on earth and the NBA and MLS bubbles are there and doing just fine. It doesn’t matter where the bubble is, as long as it’s a bubble. LA, Chicago and NY all have 2 major league stadiums and fit the geographic requirements. Fitting the games in logistically with the 60 game schedule starting when it did probably would have been really difficult, but establishing 3 bubbles cities and starting the season in early June most likely would have been very easily accomplished. Of course that also would have required the owners and players to have genuine, reasonable and intelligent conversations from the beginning.... which we all know wasn’t going to happen.

    7/26 GT - Twins at Sox - 1:10pm

    Well clearly we need to make a trade if we are serious about contending this year.

    7/26 GT - Twins at Sox - 1:10pm

    Well thankfully the offense is great, but this could get ugly. No bummer or Marshall and probably no/very little Cischeck available out of the pen. Probably going to see multiple Detweiler innings

    Delmonico probably isn’t a major league player...hopefully that will sink in sooner rather than later
