PR him if he gets a hit. Regardless I think what SS2k5 is right, he’s not available to even PH and it’s a bluff on the Sox.

They posted their roster and now line-ups very late. I think they're legitimately seeing if he can go.

He may be a project for a non-contender.

Not sure what value he brings to a non-contender with 1 year of control.

Not that we should indulge him but he was not well I think. He may be a project for a non-contender.

If he really isn't well he should have been DL'd and left off playoff roster.   That seems to be the common theme in his struggles.

So of he getss a hit in the 1st inning you run for him and put the other guy in anyway so you waste a bench piece pinch running for him then another by putting EE at DH for the rest of the game. Not good , no one would do that if it happened in the 1st inning.

Well I'd think they'd just cut their losses and ten day him if it was a huge bluff, but I tend to agree

Eh I think hes close but after winning game 1 I could see them being cautious and waiting the extra day if they lost. If they win they by him 3 more days

What an absolute joke having Edwin in this lineup.  Either A) Nobody above Ricky has the ability to tell him to fuck off with these shit lineups  B) The people above Ricky agree the .100 hitting Edwin needs to be in the lineup over Mcann (or literally anyone else on the roster)

I haven't looked, but I do seem to remember that those ridiculous Toronto lineups went quiet in the playoffs a few times

If you are going to play EE, why in the hell are you batting him 5th?  Drop his ass down a few spots.

At this point, I honestly don't know what is worse.  EE at 5 or Nick at 9.  It's so archaic.  But hey, win and it's water under the bridge.

I'll help Ricky

1. Tim

2. Yoan

3. Abreu

4. Grandal

5. Robert

6. Edwin

7. Engel

8. Leury

9. Nick

I am batting Robert 5th because if he gets on base, he has enough speed to be driven in by EE. If EE gets on ahead of Robert, it will be tough to get him in.

Fuck Ricky Renteria and honestly fuck Hahn & KW for not telling him what to do.  I’m sure Parrot will hit a HR today given all the hate, but our process is completely broken with EE as our DH today.

This post is so accurate. Remember when these things wouldn't happen in the playoffs. Just need a Jimmy Guns appearance for a perfect RR game.

I think the assumption that they aren't involved in this process is wrong.

Did you catch the announcer yesterday referencing how Eloy looked nowhere near close to playing during BP?

I didn't.  What specifically were they referring to?  Was he limping or something?
