Want to say Thank You to the Moderation Team for isolating the trade rumors into a new folder.

I'm really looking forward to the DH tomorrow, I want the Sox to completely bury the Twins to the point that they decide to sell off everyone and tank until Carl Pohlad's great great great grandchildren have come and gone. I want garbage corporate field and their home team to be known as MLB Chernobyl, and the team to be relegated to the minor leagues.

I have been sick of the Twins for two decades. I want to live a healthy 40-50 more years, and never see them win another AL Central again in my lifetime.

Also want to say I love your avatar. I'm sorry someone attacked you for it earlier today. People need to accept The Truth.

Go Sox!!!

Thank you SSHM, some posters can't get past their blind TLR lovefest to admire it.

Pretty limited to maybe 4-5 posters there, although some coming out of the woodwork more recently.

Then the problem becomes complacency and not being challenged enough in their own division, which has been. the case for division ever since Indians' World Series run. 

It will be interesting to see how the AL East and NL West teams do in the playoffs since those are arguably the two toughest divisions...although that West is historically top heavy, even more so than the 2006 AL Central.

No "TLR love fest"...just pointing out how repetitive and unwarranted  criticism, ageism, and snarky comments (or in one case an avatar)  have turned juvenile and petty.

You get behind the wheel of a car after drinking and you deserve every bit of snarky and immature criticism you get.

At some point,  personal attacks no longer add anything and  become distracting. Not sure what you mean by immature criticism, but I suppose teenagers can post here.  Oh well, I am going to disengage with this foolery and return for the DHer later today. Proceed.

I would have thought Kopech but they don't seem to want to use him for more than an inning yet. Lopez was called up so I would think it is him *gulps*.

I think it depends on how they do in the first game.

Kopech SHOULD start Game 2.  If Lopez starts game 2, Sox are swinging the bat bottom 1 down 4-0. 

He pitched an inning yesterday so it would/should have been planned to have at least one off day if he was going to try to go 2+.

Lopez wasn't brought up to get lit up.

I don‚Äôt think there‚Äôs any evidence that‚Äôs a real ‚Äúproblem.‚ÄĚ ¬†I hope our division is weak for as long as possible throughout our window so we maximize our shots in the playoffs. We play plenty of games against out-of-division opponents anyway. ¬†This isn‚Äôt college basketball.

Did it hurt the patriots not being challenged enough in their own division? 

Step on their necks and laugh.

Different sport, where the QB/Brady or in NBA 2-3 superstars can control a game…see LAA playoff record or lack thereof with Trout and now Ohtani.

Trout, Ohtani, and Walsh might as well the supercharged, super-expensive version of the 2016 White Sox. The Sox took steps to avoid that this time around and built out depth to go along with the stars, which has been hysterically evident this season.

couldn't matter less to why playing in a bad division makes you worse.

There was a point where an AL central team played in the worlds series for like 5 out of 6 years in the 10s

The central won half of AL pennants from 2005-16.

I think there is plenty of middle ground people here who are pretty much over the hiring and are more focused on the how the team has performed under him. Plus seeing some posters continue to stick pins in their voodoo dolls every chance they get in nearly every thread they can work it just riles up the people who rather just focus on the team. If TLR was really such a villain surely he'd be in jail or at the very least in Bauer-like limbo.

I can imagine winning the World Series and the 1st words out of some peoples mouths will be about how TLR will get smashed again and the ensuing results will hopefully prevent him from managing again in 2023.

Just to add to this, I just saw this old tweet and it needed to be shared:
