Maybe it's the College World Series

The one that Burdi blew a save in just after we drafted him?

The Rodon and Lopez experiments have to end at some point. I know our bullpen is exhausted right now but how many more chances can they give to both of them?

If it wasn't for injuries and opt outs, we wouldn't be having these conversations.

I agree. It just seems like both of them have been with the organization for a while and have been given more than enough chances to succeed.

Rodon is going to go somewhere else, stay mostly healthy and put it all together, and we're all going to hate it.

Rodon is gonna get non-tendered this fall after not returning to action.  Someone will grab him with the hopes that he'll finally be heathy and perform and will be lucky if he does.

I use to think that too Jack. But that train left 2 years ago. Now with Rodon I'm in "whatever" mode.

Yeah and his cockiness and his wife don't help his situation. Not a guy you wanna root for when he clearly thinks he is better than his injury record shows. But who knows, maybe he gets healthy for a month run and helps Sox win an improbable world series.

If anything, Rodon finally accepts he won’t be a starter and becomes a Pomeranz type weapon out of the bullpen.  This idea of Rodon suddenly clicking as a starter is nothing more than Jack Parkman torture porn.

Yep. Test Rodon out in the pen and if he excels this and next year, keep him. We got 8 years to get down and it will be expensive, but let's get down.

He will only do that if and only if his only option to continue his career is in the bullpen.

You can't blame him. The big FA money is in starting. He hasn't gotten the payday yet.

Not at all. I'm expecting Rodon to be non-tendered this winter, and I expect him to seek an opportunity to start. I expect a rebuilding team to give him that opportunity. It shouldn't cost them that much. A team like Seattle or even the Angels would jump on his talent. 

The biggest issue Rodon had here(yes I'm talking about it in the past tense) is that he couldn't stay healthy for consecutive seasons after 2016. If he could have stacked a few healthy seasons in a row together, I think he could have improved enough to be at least a strong #2. We will never know. He's kinda the Sox version of Mark Prior without ever being as good immediately. 

I always liked Rodon as a prospect and was thrilled when he fell to the Sox. Shit happens.

Very likely if Rodon was dominant as a reliever in the playoffs he could cash in more as a reliever especially if playoffs are expanded.

Everyone thinking he will be back for the playoffs remembers how his short term shoulder problem in spring training cost him half of the 2018 season and then still lingered into 2019 where it probably contributed to blowing out his elbow, right?

Do we have any idea how the taxi squad will work for the postseason?  Can Rodon or Bummer be added to the active roster for the ALDS if they aren't ready by the end of the regular season?
