I honestly think the most important take-away from this year is that guys like Gio, Moncada, Anderson, McCann, Bummer and Marshall is not only have they been good...they've been good all year, elite even. They've shown their developments aren't just some fluke. 

No doubt it’s been a positive year in the majors in terms of development on the field. Just have to keep everyone healthy rest of the way and make some strong moves this offseason.

Can someone explain Skole batting over Eloy?

Gut, instinct, you just know your guys and Skole is the guy

Hmmm....do you think Marshall has a future with the Sox?  I guess I just don't think of him when thinking about the future.  That would be tremendous to have another reliable bullpen arm going forward.

Guessing Jose/his agent thinks his market is better than that.

Oh No...we better give him a Q.O. :cool:

That actually might be the best thing for all parties. He'd take it, and the Sox only would be committed for one year.

Eh, I'm not sure. Bullpens can be such crap-shoots. Happens all over the league. Guys can be elite one year and mediocre the next, then elite again the next. I think Marshall has deserved another shot as a middle reliever next year for sure. Part of the Sox future? Will have to wait and see. I think if anything, the bullpen is going to be the piece that changes the most often, and will be the most high-maintenced part of the team during the winning years once everything else is fairly solidified.

I get you.  A bad bullpen can screw up an otherwise contending team so any and all reliable arms are important.  He definitely deserves a shot to be in the mix with how he has pitched this year.

Things sure can change year to year such as Politte/Cotts being unhittable in '05 to....bleh.

The ‘ol momentum shift coming this half inning.  If the Twins are going to score, it’s now.

And I could just hear Ron at home shouting at the t.v., why are they speeding up Abreu’s bat throwing all those curveballs...beforevfinally mixing in a pedestrian fastball that must have looked like 95+.

As soxace will support me with, there’s no reason Engel didn’t steal 2nd in top of the 6th.

There is no reason to believe the Sox would sign Abreu for only one year. 3-5 years is my hope

Honest question: Has Matt Skole hit a ball hard since getting called up?

I don’t think so

Hell, even Leury. He may not be elite, but he is definitely very good. I always thought, all he needs to do is stay healthy and he will open eyes. Well, he's done that, and he's shown what he can do. And he's kept his numbers up all year as well as play solid defense in center, as well as short in Tim's absence.

Giolito as the #3 next year would be amazing

Too long. 2 years max.

If they got Cole or Strasburg that could be realistic, however Giolito is outperforming Strasburg this year. Has a better ERA and trails him by 2 K in 12 fewer innings, in a better league.

5 years is nuts. I wouldn’t be surprised if they give him 2 years with a 3rd year option/buyout.

Stras and Gio as 1 and 2 would still work well for us if Kopech and Cease give us solid pitching.

Or even better, Cole AND Strasburg 🤑

Won’t happen but they could certainly afford to while still maintaining a below league average payroll.

Can't wait for Cruz to retire. 

I can't stand the guy. Someone test him for PEDs ASAP.
