Any reason given for Moncada not playing, other than avoiding a LHP and the strikeout record?

Haven't his RHH stats vs. lefties been significantly improved the last 4 weeks or so?

Never in a million years would have predicted Mondesi would be outplaying Moncada by this much at the end of the year.

That said, there's a lesson.  Look at how many times Mondesi came up and failed (mostly, from an offensive standpoint) before he finally started to put it together the 2nd half of this season (of course, it seemed Buxton had turned a corner as well, and that didn't take.)

Just 7 minutes after saying that there is no reason why Moncada should not be playing, you come up with a reason for him not to play.

Rondon needs to get the starting opportunity at 3B next year over Yolmer.

Yolmer can be the supersub, his most suitable role...and Leury for OF/defense/PR, if you duct tape him up and he can still stand.

The Sox got robbed in the Swarczak trade. 

True, Cordell is worthless, but Swarczak was pretty bad himself.  So, the Sox did not get "robbed" in that trade.

I don’t see that happening

They said at the beginning of the broadcast he had a sore hip or something.

I'm not sure how everybody can be wrong, but they are.

 

Swarzak was absolutely not "pretty bad".

He also did not command any more than Cordell, with no track record to speak of.

I'm actually more incensed at calling Swarzak bad for us. If this is pretty bad, god help any reliever we have that isn't Mariano Rivera.
