Yep well if you or your opinions were valuable I’m sure you wouldn’t be complaining on an online forum

Why do you post here, read all my posts, and comment on them if it's all meaningless? Seems like quite the waste of time for you there champ.

And now Andrew vaughn is not starting opening day. The idiocy of Tony la russa has already begun. 

I’m not going to blame Tony for this. If anything, seems like a punishment for not agreeing to an extension.  Can’t believe how bad this lineup looks compared to some of the hopes and dreams we had for it heading into the offseason.

I don’t think he’s wrong to do that, in all honesty.

So many days off early in the season and with weather I dont get it. Not like some part time players are gonna get in a rhythm because of it. 

At the end of the day the lineup doesn't mean much obviously but its just such a disappointing opening day lineup for an all in year. Sheesh.

lol we fire one manager who sucks at making lineups because he's stuck in the 90s and hire another manager who sucks at making lineups because his hayday was in the 90s.

I agree the lineup is disappointing. I can see him wanting to get everyone in the lineup, especially Mercedes against one of the LHP

I don’t mind him being in the lineup but Garcia should be batting 8-9

I don’t either....but I don’t know if not starting Vaughn sends the best message. I mean, who is the starting LF? Did anyone ask Tony that? Tony said when Eloy got hurt they were going get Vaughn as many reps as possible in LF to prepare for the season. Now he’s on the bench for Game 1? 
 

Honestly, I’ll give TLR the benefit of the doubt early...I don’t have reason to doubt him at this point. But that can change quickly.

Of course he shouldn’t. Over/under 1.5 groundouts to 2nd base for him tomorrow.

Yeah this Vaughn thing is pretty stupid.  Just kinda seems once Eloy got hurt, their world got turned upside down.  I agree with what you’ve said today, losing Eloy was a colossal blow for the team.

I can understand larussa not wanting vaughn to play his first MLB game in left field and since it is a righty pitcher and collins did very well in spring DHing him makes sense too. 

Not sure why leury is batting 6th though, maybe it is to get the L R alternation?

Especially not against righties. Leury's decent against lefties but very below average against right handed pitchers.

Building a roster with the expectation of Eloy, Robert, Moncada, Anderson, Madrigal & Grandal all being available for 150+ games was never logical but the cracks are already being shown sooner than anyone could have expected.

Not really, because he's going to be hitting behind Moncada and Grandal. I don't know why TLR loves bunching all the switch hitters together.

Some of us warned about the injury prone core players and how the Sox did absolutely nothing to insulate themselves this offseason.  The thing that sucks about Eloy getting hurt so soon is there’s nothing to guarantee more injuries don’t also occur.
