Why is Foster still in this game?

let him get a little stretched out, he's the opener.  I'm actually liking Renteria's bullpen this game, maybe cooper is the problem.

Anderson is a natural on pop ups, honestly he probably would be a helluva LF.

Do you think he would move to LF if sox got Lindor? I mean...I know, it will never happen, but would he concede? That team would be unstoppable.

Interesting convo by Steve...I'm about done with the Nomar Mazar experiment. But I don't think we see a new starter out there until next year. The deadline will be I imagine pretty tame this year.

Sorry, but I sit at home and whine about the umpires. I'm also interested in baseball history. I do not sit at home and make cheesy, nonsensical jokes. So yes, I prefer Hawk, even in his degraded end-of-career state.

They get enough baseball history. Benetti lobs Stone softballs often about "who's the best _____ you ever saw/played with" or "do you remember the player that you ______ for the first time in your career?" They also do Sox Math and Sox Files which are occasionally baseball *history* related. I don't really give a shi who Hawk, of all people, thinks is the greatest player at some random category, sorry.

Nope, he's all turned around now. Pitchers have figured out how to turn his aggression against him, he is gonna have to start laying off pitches to make them stop

Should probably take until he has a strike for a couple games, hopefully Renteria can sit him down and give him some advice, or one of the older Latin guys.

part of the reason i think he needs to lead off. Leadoff hitters see 60% fastballs.

No one is going to throw him a high portion of fastballs now, regardless of where he’s hitting.

That's fair (and sorry if I came off as argumentative), but Hawk watched Sox games like I watched Sox games. He launched over the moon when I did, and he sulked when I did. He whined about the umps like I did. To each their own, but that's my preference and my original point.

That change is why I think they should have develped Burdi as a starter.  He's got 3 legit pitches.

Notice he dumped the exaggerated front foot stretch
