    The TLR Manager Thread

    This can be interpreted in a bunch of different ways. Did none of the other coaches know the rule? Did they know the rule but fear speaking up to correct Tony? Did they know the rule, but based on Tony's answer, assume that Tony knew it as well and preferred Hendriks running to a position player?

    The Andrew Vaughn LF Thread

    Why shouldn't it be part of the thought process. Eloy has shown that he plays the position in a way that makes him vulnerable to injury. Putting him out there isn't best for the team. The PR nightmare wouldn't come from the injury, but that the Sox brass should have known better at this point.

    The Andrew Vaughn LF Thread

    I don't think Eloy steps foot in left field again. Can you imagine, if after all this, the Sox put him out in left field again next year and he got injured again?!? It would be a PR disaster and the Sox have invested too much in him. No, he's done in the field. Vaughn will play left this year and next year and then the Sox will have to decide whether to keep him there long term or move him to 1B if/when Abreu's contract is up. Yermin should absolutely be traded this offseason to an NL team needing a DH. If he's solid all year, the Sox should be able to get really good value for him in a trade as a cost-controlled, MLB-proven hitter.

    Tigers @ Sox, 4/29/21

    We have a serious problem here. If everyone is actually healthy, then there's no reasonable defense for this lineup. None. Which means one of two things -- either LaRussa is suffering from serious cognitive decline (not meant as an insult, but an objective observation), or LaRussa is doing this as a huge F You to the fans/media/Hahn, just to show everyone he can do whatever he wants.

    Madrigal.

    The OPS statistic is a good one, but not perfect by any means, and people who criticize Madrigal rely too heavily on it as the end-all-be-all for measuring a player's baseball value. There was an at bat the other night that perfectly captured the chasm between Madrigal's actual value and OPS as a statistic. Madrigal was up and Robert was at third with one out. Madrigal fouled off some tough pitches with 2 strikes that most hitters would have struck out on, then hit an RBI groundout. Madrigal's skillset produced a concrete positive result that won't be reflected in his OPS.

    Madrigal.

    This is cherry picking at its finest. I can promise there will be one or two players selected after Madrigal that will have a better overall career than him. And Madrigal haters will constantly mention that the Sox blew the pick because they could have selected one of those guys (while of course omitting to mention the other 28 guys selected in the first round who were busts).

    Madrigal.

    Assuming all Madrigals, every plate appearance would be expected to produce 0.63-0.64 outs. So it would take over 42 plate appearances to produce 27 outs. Over 42 plate appearances is going to produce 16 times on base.

    I would check your math on that. 9 guys with a .350-.375 OBP and 27 outs. How many times on base?

    Madrigal.

    Not true at all, because your 27 outs are all balls in play. Runner(s) would be advancing on most at bats. There would be plenty of 1-hit innings that would result in a run.

    Madrigal.

    I've seen this said many times and I just don't buy it. I'd put a lineup of 9 Madrigals vs. any lineup in baseball all day long. On a per game basis, you're looking at at about 12-14 hits, 4-5 walks, and 0 strikeouts. People don't think that would produce a bunch of runs?

    The Andrew Vaughn LF Thread

    Vaughn showing that he can make all the routine plays in left field and an occasional good one (like in today's game) is a very, very positive development and far outweighs some of his early struggles at the plate.

    Corbin Burnes

    Well, we'll probably never know what Stearns was asking for, but it's starting to feel like whatever it was Hahn should have paid it.

    Let's not forget that Nick Williams got hit squarely in the hand yesterday, and is probably dealing with some swelling/soreness today. Even if he was raking that's reason enough for him to not be in the lineup today.

    If anyone wants the real answer why this is happening: Tim is about to come off the IL, Jake Lamb is about to be DFA'd, and Tony wanted to throw him a start before that happens. Trying to win a baseball game, be damned.

    Time for Hahn to go all "moneyball" and just DFA Nick Williams and Jake Lamb. "Sorry, Tony, you can't start those guys tonight....they're no longer on the team"
