Engel hurt again, Tepera progressing

Recommended Posts

Has to be frustrating for Engel.  Seems like it will take a full offseason for him to heal.

That really sucks.  Thanks Hahn, for not getting a RFer at the deadline.

A RFer instead of Kimbrel was always the right move.

He’s never had a full season, at this point he  unfortunately can not be counted on as anything more than a 4th outfielder

He’s never been repeatedly hurt like this though. This one seems like it could have been a “playoffs are here, might as well give it a shot” gamble by the training staff.

Once again, even if Engel was healthy. They shoulda grabbed a RFer

Hope they don't try to coax Nick Markakis out of retirement this offseason.

Jake Cave seems like a Sox FO addition

At some point, it just becomes who you are, and not an outlier. Trending that way, for Engel.

Just gotta hope Goodwin gets some hits in the postseason cause I'm sure they're gonna play him.

Probably more likely we see tonight’s configuration than Goodwin. Honestly with a 26 man roster that is healthy I don’t see how Goodwin makes the playoff roster. Bench will be Leury, Collins, Sheets and Hamilton IMO.

I could see one more guy on the bench with 8 man pen and 4 starters.

Yeah that too if they have the balls to leave Keuchel off the roster or Carlos can’t pitch. I’d be surprised if they did the former.

Engel being unreliable almost clinches that Goodwin will be on the playoff roster:

OF - Jimenez, Robert, Engel, Vaughn, Hamilton, Goodwin

IF - Moncada, Anderson, Hernandez, Abreu, Garcia, Sheets

C - Grandal, Collins

SP - Giolito, Rodon, Lynn, Cease

RP - Hendriks, Kimbrel, Tepera, Kopech, Bummer, Crochet, Keuchel, Lopez

A good defensive outfielder with pop, everyday player, was our main need at trade deadline, not 2 more relievers, especially an expensive reliever like Kimbrel.

Starling Marte or Kris Bryant would have looked pretty fine acquisition at deadline, instead of having to depend on scrubs like Goodwin.

I can’t imagine playing Goodwin in the outfield in the playoffs.  There is no margin for error in a 5 games series, to take a chance with a AAA type erratic outfielder like Goodwin that can cost us a game.
