I'm guessing that L is now in reference to the game's likely outcome with Leury getting 4 ABs

This is insane. Leury is the best outfielder on this team.

Something really encouraging early on in ST is that Giolito is missing bats. Huge development.  2K in the 1st inning. 

On the other hand, Moncada is still struggling with Ks.

Cease went one inning. Have to figure this was planned.

Cease is going to be moved along as slowly as humanly possible as the Sox would like to get him some big league looks late in the season assuming nothing derails his path. 

They made it clear that Cease would probably be the least used arm in spring this year.

I have never seen any player get as many sliding injuries as him. I have to wonder if most players play through it?

For a while since he bulked up so much between his cuban leagues and US debut I thought his body was adjusting, but it's ridiculous now. 

You would play through a jammed thumb during the season. A jammed thumb is something you play with quite a bit in your career. During spring it makes no sense to play through it though. 

I would say, no more head first slides though. Enough is a enough. They should weed themselves out of the game.

Another K for Giolito in the 2nd. Gave up a triple on the 1st pitch that ended up scoring. 1-0 Padres.

Good god Eloy is trying to kill pitchers

Yes let’s hope there aren’t any significant instances. Given how hard he hits the ball and his approach, it’s a scary situation.

He injured it the first time on a feet first slide.

Robert is as fragile as a China doll. It will be a minor miracle if he even starts 80 games this year.

Is Castillo drunk?  Literally looks like he’s never thrown a ball before. 3 awful blunders so far.

I was just going to ask that same question.

Giolito didn’t look overly great. Still struggles to get breaking pitches close enough to make hitters chase.

Why why why is Minaya still in this organization. 2 wild pitches and loaded the bases on 2 walks and a hbp

Giolito kind of "meh" today, Minaya looked brutal yet again. How many chances is this stiff going to keep getting from this organization?

I am not a big Minaya guy myself, but in the second half of last season he had a 3.18 ERA across 28.1 IP with 34 Ks against 12 BBs.  He's nothing special, but you can do alot worse for a middle reliever.  If the Sox got rid of every reliever you called a "stiff", they'd have no one left.
