    I don't think we can dump all this in Renteria's lap

    I searched for another thread and didn't find it. Apparently, Renteria didn't understand what the umps were asking re: his challenge of Narvaez's "homer" last night and didn't challenge, a move that cost the Sox the game. Is he on pain meds? How stupid. Also, the 8th today where he let's a spent Hector put 3 guys on and then plays musical relievers for like 45 minutes was unwatchable.
  2. The last two innings have been ridiculous for their chase rate. Has a hitting coach ever been fired in the middle of an inning?
  3. Wow. Ricky's lineups are weird. At least we've got Palka in there for... defense?

    I wouldn’t trade nearly that much for one year of Joc Pederson. I get it, we’re desperate but still, we have to make moves that have decent value.

    Why Did Covey Start Tonight??

    Seeing Covey on the mound is physically painful. But then following him up with Fulmer? Pure sadism. That said, the Sox have a massive 40 man purge coming up. By my count, as many as 13 guys could be going bye bye. I think they want to know what they have in Covey for sure before they drop him. Personally, I would rather watch Detwiler. As far as trying to lose, they are basically locked in to picking 9th, maybe 8th. Their good first half ensures that despite their horrific run differential.

    Free Agency - How confident are you?

    Meanwhile, Nelson Cruz’s blood is about as clean as Spiderman’s and nothing.
  7. Dotel and Castillo cleared of all charges. This did not smell right from the start.

    Jay to the IL, Cordell recalled

    Who said they were smart?

    Jay to the IL, Cordell recalled

    I think in all the Machado threads there was sufficient outrage over Alonso and Jay as well as Castillo, Nova, and Ervin Santana (remember him?). Jay now joins the least of barely-remembered wastes of Reinsdorf cash like Jeff Keppinger and Darin Erstad. I have no more anger left for him, I just want to forget it ever happened.

    Alex Gordon is on record saying he will never leave KC. Also, he wasn’t good the last two years before this one.

    Huh, I would have bet the farm Basabe was going. Oh, well.

    No excuse for this. He doesn’t even know Manny Machado.

    I was kidding. That said, do you not believe in Collins, Madrigal, or Robert because Charlotte’s a bandbox?

    Valuable AAA pennant race experience for Collins?

    I agree. I have always said that baseball is about depth. How many AAAA have significant roles on your team. That’s what sunk the Sale-era Sox. Get Collins, Robert, and Madrigal up, that’s no at bats for Engel, Yolmer, and Skole/Alonso/Jay. I call that a good start. A decent rightfielder completes the puzzle. Not that hard.
