Garrett Crochet Called Up

But why spend the resources there when the Sox have other options? You know that the "payroll" will not go up much with the financial difficulties this year. Bauer would be an upgrade but those resources can be used more effectively elsewhere.

I don't see what would be more effective for this team next year than a top of the rotation starting pitcher, especially if he is not looking for a long contract.  The offense will be even better next year with a healthy Moncada, Vaughan, and anyone else in RF imho.

This would be the only way its works. If he sticks to the one year deal, it would be ok. Any more than that, then its not worth the risk.

Good idea but I'm not a hoppy fan. I'm going with Hacker-pschorr hefeweizen.

Hard to imagine 100+ prospects being better than this guy, wow

What's his future? Hader-like closer? Sale-like starter? Filth

He's going to get every chance to start before they put him in the pen.

I read he could make the playoffs since he was at the Schamburg location?

Do you have a name? The only FA I would entertain might be Trevor Bauer.

That is who I was talking about...it was in response to another poster's comment about Bauer.

RF. DH. 

But agree with the idea that we should see if we can bring in another rotation guy even it is for a year while guys like Stiever, Kopech, and Crochet continue to develop.

RF imo is the only other place to spend those resources and there isn’t anyone out there that’s going to change the game.  You can use your trade capital to find a long term solution at rf.

Right field would be my preference.  I really don't see any help coming from inside the organization.  The Sox have a great offense but as we see hitters especially young hitters are prone to slumps and inconsistency.  A veteran bat there can stabilize it.

With the 100+ mph heat, Aroldis Chapman comes to mind.

Chris Sale > Aroldis Chapman. Gotta give him every chance to be a starter.

Also, I think he's going to Verlander it as a starter. He keeps 101 in his back pocket and works at 94-96.

I'd say 96-97. That 101 is so easy

This crossed my mind too.  Something about his affectation on the mound.  

Nevermind, allowed a hit.  Trade him

He’s going to be a good weapon to have at your disposal either way
