    CLE @ SOX, 1:10 PM Central

    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...

    By "said my bit" you mean create an entire narrative in your head based on NO evidence, but sure, whatever you say QBalta.

    Holy jump to conclusions, Batman! This article was from March 5th, 2021, by the Detroit Free Press. https://www.freep.com/story/sports/mlb/tigers/2021/03/05/detroit-tigers-nomar-mazara-focuses-future-offensive-woes-2020/4591762001/ You have absolutely zero proof Nomar Mazara had COVID.

    2021 NHL Thread

    That's basically it, Tex. They had a bunch of guys brought in on one year deals, so it made sense and was probably always the plan to trade those guys. I think Stan did a pretty decent job acquiring a decent collection of additional draft picks, and a few younger lottery tickets. Very good chance none of the guys in the "incoming" category in the above tweet ever amount to anything.....but the Hawks also didn't have any players that would fetch a huge return. Stan doing nothing at the deadline would have been a huge mistake.
  19. Here is the long and short of it for anyone even slightly defending the move ( I really haven't seen anyone do that lol) 1. Is this the best possible lineup TLR could construct? 2. Do placing Williams and Lamb in the lineup serve any other positive strategic process, both short-term and/or long term? I personally feel like both of the answers to those questions are no......which leaves me scratching my head on the decision making process around creating the lineup card.
  20. In terms of the lineup, there simply isn't any defense you can give. Even if Andrew Vaughn lost an arm in battle last night....why is Nick Williams hitting 5th, in front of Grandal? Or even Madrgial...or even Mendick? Are they really trying to get Nick Williams as many AB's as possible? What are we doing here?
  21. Careful, with that type of talk @Look at Ray Ray Run might think you're saying the whole season is over!

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    Yes Bmags, because if we've anything over time, it's that people, especially those already "concerned" about the vaccine will make thoughtful, rational, well thought out decisions and really research what the CDC and FDA are saying....certainly won't rush to judgment or share articles on social media how the J&J vaccine can't be trusted and it's harmful to our bodies.....NO WAY any of that happens.
