TA is the best

I love his personality, and him being the de facto face of the franchise.

Hmmm... not liking those guys putting the "nobody paid to see you walk" in Tim's head. Gonna be interesting to see if Tim listens to Grandal about "walks create runs" as he said at SoxFest (but hey if Tim wants to continue to hit .330+ and improve with the glove, then I got no gripes at all. Keep swingin it Timmy).

He didn’t admit to being a butcher on defense. And I dont think that is a good description of his defensive abilities whatsoever.

Good luck hitting .335 again if you don’t think walks are important.

Normally I’d agree but Tim did show that special ability to serve outside pitches back into shallow center and right at will.  Konerko didn’t develop that skill until his last few years but it was beautiful.  
This leads me to think Tim can sustain super high BAs.  One of the more interesting things to watch this year for sure

He has said patience and discipline at the plate were big focuses of his off-season plan. This is just a funny video of him joking around about the critics he had last year despite winning a batting title.

This was who Tim was poking fun at - my guy Moanyoan.

I know it was tongue in cheek.  I just hope he listens to Grandal.

FWIW - I think Tim was mostly just joking around in that interview.  I wouldn't take his "psssh, I ain't here to walk" talk very seriously.

Was actually cool to see him so relaxed in an interview for once

I know Greg Amsinger isn't guilty of this, but were the other two guys interviewing him the same guys lamenting the bat flip on the day it happened? TA retweeted the video not to long ago.

And I agree that this conversation was very likely tongue in cheek.

Wild to see how far he's come not just as a player but as a person. It wasn't that long ago that you'd never hear the guy say a word.

Walks don't result in an RBI. Sometimes a hitter like Abreu will swing at a pitch that is outside the strike zone to drive in a run.  Players that try to coax too many walks eventually are going to get lit up by umpires on a close pitch for a called strike 3.

Yep, worst case scenario you end up like 2018 Moncada. That's the other extreme of working counts.

Tim is a fun dude who was having fun in this interview, don't take anything he says here too seriously.

He's the best.

Why won’t the Sox name him captain?

I'd like to see Abreu and Tim as captains with Grandal as the clubhouse ambassador and guy that does all the tough interviews so others don't have to.

But TA might be a bit too young.  Hard to believe he's only entering his age 26 season.

In general, I wouldn’t name a captain of a baseball team until they’re on the team for at least 8 years with plans of being there longer,  and you know, finish over .500 once, and make the postseason. Before that, they can be leaders and a good influence, but captaincy is taking it to the next level.
