Is he really that bad for a 5th starter?  If you don't have the same expectations for him as you do for the guys in the top of your rotation I think it is easier to accept.

For the amount he’s being paid and the inability to have any luck the 3rd time through, he’s not exactly a bargain

I agree with that completely. Keuchel is serviceable as a 4/5 starter that you can rely on to make 30 starts.

The Sox are just in a position where they have 4 guys who are clearly better, and then for next season Kopech (obviously) and Lopez (potentially) might be better options than him as well.

Tony has always loved the last guys on his roster. He wants to get credit for winning with them playing. Everyone can win if they play regulars. He is a HOF baseball person brother. He is smarter than everyone else.

TLR is in another alternate universe.  If he wants to sit Anderson and Robert, just reconsider and sit only one of them. I would sit TA ahead of Robert.  We can’t afford to have Goodwin playing CF. Why he doesn’t rest Hernández?   TLR kills our momentum with these lineups.

I switched over to the Bears game and just saw Trubisky lead his 3rd TD drive early in the 2nd Q so I might have to switch back to this game.

Who’s this quarterback for Buffalo? Bills are steamrolling. 

Trubisky. He would be a great backup QB to have behind Fields instead we get Dalton 😔

Well that's another topic lol, but they are going to have pay him so might as well try to make it work the best you can.

Yep split up the days off for the guys so you stop having these awful split-squad lineups.  Been doing it a lot lately and it’s been very ineffective.

I doubt it was planned out days ahead of time TA would sit today. If the medical staff advises TA sits because he's at an elevated injury risk, do you really think he should be playing?

Love surprise Seby homers

Seby hit 20 homers in Charlotte in 2019, so he does have some pop.

I'm not even pitching Keuchel in the rotation come playoff time no matter how much experience he has. He has been that bad this season.

He has experience in giving up runs as recently as last year.

Bears look like a high school team

28-0. This Buffalo quarterback looks like a Hall of Famer - you see him turn a 10 yd sack into a 1st down run that drive?!

TLR compounds the problem by hardly ever pinching hitting with our sitting boppers even in game situations.

If you watch when Anderson gets a day off, he has no jersey on. He won't play unless its an absolute emergency

It seems that Len's Soxmath questions were more Wheel of Forune like and we are back to Jeopardy with Jason's return.

And for the record, I can do neither

Eh it's not like our medical team has been good this year or anything.

Unless the Sox tie or take the lead before then, Dallas needs to go 110 pitches no matter how bad it gets.

Goodwin with his usual terrible route to the ball.
