You don't magically get better at awareness and athleticism at the big league level.  He has a lot of work to do.

I never got the people saying he has 10-15 HR power. If he hits 5 it will be a big output IMO.

Why is Encarnacion in and Mazara isn't? against a RHP at that....

Because he had good, unproductive outs against him in the past

Madrigal is getting shit on but Keuchal was terrible and the offense hasn't done anything this game against a pitcher they should be killing.  Edwin cannot go fast enough.   If they had a third starter I would be ok with this but in the end it looks like the front office punted on this season.

I've yet to see him hit one to the warning track

I really don't care about the power but he can't be below average at 2B and one of the worst runners in MLB.  Like he's def down to -5 RAA on the bases now in like 1/3 of a full season.

He made a bad play on defense in a big game as a rookie. Wont be the first or last person to do that.

As for the baserunning, I have to imagine getting thrown out in earlier games this season got to him and so he was being cautious not to make another mistake.

Its a young team, there are going to be good days and bad days.

I can understand not overpaying for a quality #3 or even a good RF, but we couldn’t find a bat only guy to replace Edwin as our DH?  Like how much would that have cost?

Now it's trouble. Down by a full five runs. Not giving up yet but if Sox lose I'd start Dunning for 4 to 5 innings then go to Cease, then the pen in Game Three.

Just a fantastic inning by the offense

this game is over dude.  going into the 5th, even if we get something going they have the bullpen to put the game away

Keuchel pissed away our only real chance to take the series
