    Trevor Bauer Thread (Mazara Free Zone)

    Yeah winning or losing arb is usually a few hundred k difference but overall the number will still be pretty similar. Maybe it is 5.8 vs 6.3 or so.

    Mazara and Right Field Thread

    I have really not heard much negative about rodon's mechanics. It probably is not 100% perfect but was never considered a big red flag (like sale's mechanics). Maybe there are some things that can be optimized but some guys are just fragile while others with questionable mechanics last a decade.

    Mazara and Right Field Thread

    Wouldn't say rodon was a failure of development. 15-18 he was a solid pitcher averaging a 4.01 ERA and 1.7 bWAR. That is not fantastic but basically a good 4 starter or mediocre 3 starter. He already was not durable averaging only 124 innings but was generally an effective pitcher. Then injuries got worse and he was very bad in 19 and 20 albeit it was only like 40 innings combined. So he maybe was not what you expect from such a high pick but he was generally a solid pitcher who was ruined by injuries. So unless you attribute the injuries to the training or mechanics not optimized by the Sox you can't attribute his decline to bad development.

    ALCS- Rays vs Astros

    I'm not a huge baker fan but I feel he did a great job bringing a team that lost Cole, Verlander, Alvarez and the trash can to game 7 of the ALCS.

    Tony or Ricky

    I wonder if spreading the la russa rumor is a tactical move so that people are more willing to accept hinch (kinda as the lesser evil). Kinda like people don't really want hinch after the scandal but if he can avoid la russa you are kinda OK with it. Maybe Hahn already has a Deal with hinch (maybe even before RS end) but he can't say it because it would be a serious breach with mlb rules to negotiate with a suspended manager while season is still going so the la russa thing is just a smoke screen.

    Offseason Targets

    Is is not great but I could see the Sox going for Jake odorizzi. He was very bad but he is only 30 and was limited to 13 innings with some injuries this year (hit by a pitch, blisters) and the Sox could hope for a bounce back if he is cheap enough. Of course this Sox bounce back veteran signing didn't exactly work a lot in the past but he could bounce back to being a solid 4 starter with a high 3s, low 4 Era. Not a great solution, he could turn into EE/la Roche and get even worse instead o bouncing back and obviously Bauer would be a lot better but if the finances don't allow for it I could see oddorizzi being the guy that Hahn goes for

    What would you have done ...

    I would definitely expect to notify the GM. Regarding wistleblowing when the GM does nothing that is kind of a risky move. If MLB does act here it might work but if mlb decides to put that under the rug you lose your job and maybe even end up black balled.

    I think giants owners said a couple times they don't want a full tank rebuild.

    I could see them bringing Mazara back at a discounted rate. He was terrible but if he can get back to 2017-19 level he is a decent albeit not spectacular platton player (105 wrc+against lefties) that could share RF with Engel. Not a premium solution but cheap

    Pitching Coach Candidates

    I would want to bring in some outside knowledge into the org. Not saying those guys are bad but I would for example get a driveline guy who has proven to be cutting edge. Milb pitching dev of the Sox wasn't terrible but it also wasn't super great either.

    I hope it is not somebody out of the org.

    Offseason Targets

    The giants ballpark isn't all that pitcher friendly anymore, they moved in some fences and it played much more neutral this year. No launching pad but also not an extreme pitchers park anymore

    Tony La Russa

    Is that so? The 2016 cubs lost 15 out of 20 games from June 20 to July 9, including a 5 game losing streak from July 5 to July 9. They continued after that with a 21-6 streak, momentum doesn't exist.

    ALCS- Rays vs Astros

    Astros turned 0-3 into 2-3. Could get interesting again.

    That is a bad Argumentation. I do believe Ricky was probably not the right guy but it is absurd to not give him credit for the wins but only blame him for the losses. It is true the Sox underperformed the last two weeks but they also played way above their heads the first 45 games unless you believe the Sox were like a 105 win team after being projected for 85 wins. You can't just say the first 45 games were the Sox new level and any deviation from that is on the manager. That being said of course it is always possible to get better. I guess we will see next year who is correct. If the Sox win more than 95 games than you can say that is their true talent level and Ricky was just holding them back.
