Tim Anderson is on "high heat" on the mlb network in a few minutes.

I can't stand that guy (the high heat host, not tim)

The Sox wanted him a few years back, but Brantley turned us down.  Let’s make him regret that decision.

Ugh Sheets at 1B is a big no from me. Definitely would take my chances with Vaughn over risking a crucial error from Sheets who has proven to be a poor 1B.

Just saw a 77 inch for 4k, too rich for my blood

I can’t even imagine the price, but would be awesome to have.

Laurence is referring to signing Adam Eaton ($8m) over Michael Brantley ($16m) this off-season.

The choices are either Vaughn 1B, Sheets DH, Eloy LF, Garcia RF or Sheets 1B, Eloy DH, Garcia LF, Engel RF

It's an interesting choice. I thought it would be sheets easy.

Against Lefties, McCullers is pretty much a curveball only pitcher. While Sheets has cranked a few curveballs and has decent Slugging, he ha k'd 33% of the time on them.

Against Righties, McCullers is Sinker/Slider. Vaughn has crushed sinkers, his best pitch (4 seam fb has better expected stats however). 

But vaughn has been terrible vs sliders. And McCullers never seems to have problems just loading hitters with their weaknesses.

Grandal has a good chance to be a hero.

There was an Athletic article the other day one "Why your team might win and why they might lose" and the Sox might lose because they won the division in June and have been on cruise control. 

 

I like those odds

I’m seeing Pasqua drop a routine throw in the 93 playoffs. Don’t do that, Gavin.

Please don’t remind me Adam Eaton was once on this team 😁

Fear lots of running by the Astros with Sheets trying to hold runners, coupled with Lynn (15 SBs allowed) and Grandal.

Holy fuck this is going to be a long 90 minutes.
