    In some ways, it’s not his job. I mean it is based on the discussions he’d had with the FO, but Tony was brought here to win with this squad. That wasn’t the objective when Ricky was here, it was about development. Again, some of it’s on Tony but I don’t totally blame him for using guys that are available to him. I just don’t think Crochet should be available in those situations, the focus should always be on him getting ready to start as soon as possible. That’s just my take

    Here is the thing. I don’t think Tony did anything “wrong” per say. He’s been given “prospects” in his bullpen the Sox are saying they want to be long-term starters. Tony was brought in to win as many ballgames as possible, that’s why Ricky was let go. That wasn’t his main mission based on where the team was. I think it’s on the Front Office more than anyone. I just don’t think this “plan” is in the best interest of the best long-term future for Crochet.

    He threw 0.2 IP and 8 pitches in his appearance today. If that’s how he is going to be used....this entire year is a waste for him in the long term plan.

    No, I’ll trust you on this ptac, you’ve more than proven yourself in the sports medicine field on here, you know way more than I do in that regard. I just think this season is going to be almost a total loss for Crochet if the plan is to make him a starter. If he ends up being an RP...fine (not fine, but you get it) but if they are still saying they want him as a starter long term, him throwing in an situation like today is awful.

    It's also absolutely criminal how they are using Crochet, if they really think he is going to be a starter. I know they won't do it, but I pray they send him to AAA once the MiLB season starts and start the stretch out process.

    It's really an awesome story for fans that have been here for a while. Always seemed liked a good dude, but almost hard to root for him because of how infrequent he was on the mound. There was nothing to root for. For him to take this opportunity and run with it like this.....amazing.

    The adrenaline that must leave the body after you lose a perfect game in the 9th has to be dramatic. If he can still get the no-no, will be incredibly impressive.

    Imagine if Carlos tried to push it 48 hours ago and pitch on that stomach? Amazing how things can all work out...
