So we're still short one no?

 

Edit: nvm, I realize Jones was on the 10-day

No, this was for Frare and Engel. Jones was already shelved

Totally fine with Tilson getting another shot, though I don't expect much.

I was thinking this may be a bummer for Delmonico -  I kind of doubt they add Tilson back to the roster just to DFA him again in a week or less when Eloy comes back.  I assumed Tilson was out of options since he's already been removed from the 40 man once.

BUT.....it appears the Sox outrighted him off the 40-man that time and did not DFA him due to a lack of options. Tilson still has 1 remaining, so he can be demoted back to AAA when Eloy returns without running him through waivers.

I wonder how close Jones is to just retiring.

Jones, it's time to admit that your body has not held up its part of the bargain and likely will not

Sox certainly won't be picking up their team option next offseason.

One thing that is undoubtedly better this year, is they are less willing to put up with garbage performance from guys who shouldn't be given the time.

I think I said it last year and I know I said it this year. There has to be a revolving door. Bodies in , bodies out like a morgue. Then you hope someone rises from the ashes.

He was under contract this season right, so no reason for Jones not to give it a try this year?

Perhaps if Luis Roberts continues to hit over .400, with monster4 home runs, a few more 3 and 4 hit games with multiple extra base hits, he will be deemed "ready."

Meanwhile, we have had to watch umpteen sorry at-bats from Palka. Engel and now Tilson.

Oh, they are ready alright..... for then sh1tcan.

Anyway, we already have Cordell and Leury Garcia and Delmonico so what is the point of adding another AAA back-up outfielder ?

Shuffling the deck.....on the Titaniic.

Isn't tanking lovely? More than half of the roster is absolute garbage. 

So much is riding on the shoulders of Robert, Jimenez, Madrigal, Cease, and Kopech.

Considering they won't spend on considerable upgrades, yes. When they are ready to win, they'll just pepper in the over-the-hill 30+ year old free agents that they are know to sign to complete the roster.

The good news is that the Sox have a ton of minor league talent ready to step in whenever someone goes down. Just like the yankees. And it's all homegrown, drafted and developed by some of the sharpest minds in the game today.

Yep. So much is riding on all the young kids when you have an owner who does not believe in giving out 100 million dollar plus contracts. 

The Sox will continue to shop at Aldi even though they can afford Whole Foods.

The Sox had a team option they exercised.

Let’s hope Hahn stops making the same mistakes with Rodon and Jones.  Once they get healthy, immediately trade them for whatever you can.  Stop waiting for them to get inevitable injured.

I think we've seen the last of Mr. Jones, thank God. Guy started off his career something like 8-0 and I remember thinking this guy could be something special....turns out he wasn't.

Neither guy will be on the roster next year. They're so unreliable they had no value anyway
