    8/6/20 vs. BrewCrew @ 7:10PMCT

    Also this is the type of guy Mazara should have success against. He really hasn't made any hard contact yet this season so tonight would be a good time for him to figure it out.

    I'm expecting lots of runs from the Sox tonight. As long as Gio doesn't implode, I feel good about this one. I admittedly don't know much about Lindblom for the Brewers but I see that he debuted in MLB in 2011 and has only pitched 14 innings in the Bigs since 2013, while spending most of that time in Korea. Light him up.

    The Bullpen

    If Colome struggles, I think you give Heuer a shot at closing before trading for anybody. I'm not anticipating any major trades this season for the Sox.

    The Bullpen

    The offense gets a ton of credit as the strength of this team, rightfully so, as it has been excellent this season. However, the bullpen has quietly been the unsung hero of this team so far. They've pitched a lot of innings as the starters haven't gone deep in many games. Outside of the Minnesota series, they've kept every game close. Heuer looks filthy and may be a late inning guy on this team for years to come. Bummer continues his dominance. Detwiler has been unhittable. Evan Marshall looks like a new pitcher. Matt Foster and Jimmy Cordero have looked good. Colomé has made things interesting but continues to get the job done and close out games. The one guy I've been disappointed in is Steve Cishek but if he lives up to his track record, there should be improvement from him. This is also a bullpen that lost Jimmy Lambert and started with Gio Gonzalez as a long man before being forced into the rotation due to injury. Can't forget that depending on how the Sox want to handle him and how he looks in Schaumburg, we could see Garrett Crochet coming out of the pen this season. With the battle of bullpens being a major factor in postseason play, I think the Sox bullpen could prove to be a major asset this season.

    Roster size

    with roster at 28 the rest of the year, that means we should have 14 position players: Grandal McCann Abreu Encarnacion Madrigal Anderson Moncada Eloy Robert Mazara Leury Engel Mendick Collins I like the versatility of those 14 and don't see any reason for this to change other than injury.

    McCann and Grandal bailed out Anderson big time that inning.

    8/3 Sox vs Brewers GT

    Holy hell, shut up about all the SJW stuff. From both sides.... Mazara active but on the bench vs LHP shows this may be a true platoon b/w Engel and Mazara. I like it, as they both had an OPS around .850 vs opposite-handed pitchers in 2019
