Saw something on twitter about EE having known Eloy since he was 14. Hopefully, that familiarity leads to a good working relationship and Eloy can pick up some launch angle tips from EE. Eloy's eye with EE's loft would be a sight to behold.

Hopefully EE tells Eloy to pull the damn ball a little more as well as get it more in the air.

After he figured out the slider a little I feel like he got bullied by the high FB a bit.  I don't have any data for this but he fouled off a ton of center cut high FB's last year.  Hopefully he starts turning on those.

Encarnacion is listed as #23 on the roster page. He’s never had that uni number in his career.

That may be true but I'm not sure how accurate the numbers are right now. For example, Mazara still doesn't have one and there are two active players (Keuchel and Cordero) listed as #60.

Keuchel will almost certainly be wearing #60.  Cordero will likely receive an ATV, or a boat, or some other insanely generous gift for switching his number.

He might be the one guy who hopes the Sox go back to the sleeveless jerseys.

I may be in the minority, but I love his sleeves look.  Man is ripped.

Nah I’m with you, and a lot of Twitter people are too. Sleeveless Cordero or “Jimmy Biceps” has become a movement

I don't see Medeiros getting DFA'd.  When he went to the pen, he was pretty good.  Zavala, Ruiz, Covey, Fulmer I see all go before him.

My prediction is Zavala and Ruiz will be DFA'd for Encarnacion and Cishek.

You should define what you think is pretty good. Do you remember reading he got better when he went to the pen or do you have something to back that up ? I can't see any stretch in the game logs where he was any good. Also have to take into consideration half his games being in a pitcher friendly park. repeating AA, a heck of a lot of walks, wild pitches and HBP's. Being LH and being a high draft pick only takes you so far.

Oh i like some of those. The Moncada one with the Metallica type font for the M and A is pretty cool cuz you know Moncada and Metallica both start with M and end with A so i like the creativity in the thought process.

Nice....timing makes it look they put Medeiros on waivers prior to the DFA.
