What was his 3rd plate appearance last night?

 

HBP? Sacrifice fly? IBB?

 

HBP.

Avi is just being Avi. But Abreu isn't being Abreu nor is Frazier being Frazier at least as far as having a better batting average and OBP to contribute to keeping the line moving. When your 3/4 combo is underachieving that hurts worse then the guy who was supposed to be a bench warmer or back in the minors and hits 8th .

 

Maybe if LaRoche had just retired earlier the Sox would've pursued another bat more aggressively. Now that we see who was available and having a good year so far we can say the FO failed . Trumbo, Daniel Murphy and your favorite Ian Desmond were all acquired for a relative pittance compared to the big boys the Sox spend so much wasted effort pursuing.

 

You have also pointed out in the past the circumstances that have kept Avi in the lineup written about in the recent SSS article.

 

Let's take 2 of 3 from Braves. Come back from all star game with Morneau and Jackson back in lineup. Trade for Lucroy. Make the second wildcard. Start Sale that game. Then get serious.

Jackson will take a little longer than right after the break. Probably, 1-2 weeks.

You say all these very dramatic/exciting things, but choose to lead with taking 2/3 from ATL instead of sweeping them...!!!

 

I just don't like to jinx anything. I'm pulling for that sweep.

Julio Teheran is starting against Quintana.. enough said?

No chance Sox score more than 1 run that day.

Sox lose 2-1.

 

Sale game we win - though Wisler is no slouch.

 

Shields on Sunday. Which one shows up?

 

I'll take 2 of 3 in a heartbeat.

0/4 tonight. 2 K's, RBI.

 

.118 average so far.

 

 

Btw, Brad Goldberg might the next man in for our bullpen. Maybe.

 

The important thing is he got 4 AB's for the first time.Maybe one more game and he'll start hitting.

0-2 in your predictions but still a chance for 2 out of 3.

I think Morneau will be in the lineup Friday in Anaheim. Beck was sent down. They already have 7 relievers and don't need a starter until Sunday or Monday. I think that's the roster move.

Morneau didn't play at Charlotte or for BIRM.

 

What happened?

 

Thought he was going to get one final day of AB's on Sunday?

 

Sent him home to spend time with his family one day early...before Friday's action started back up?
