  1. So the dreaded question...who are we bringing in to pitch the 7th/8th?

    What the Brewers Series is Telling Us

    This is basically it. Thinking you can make someone change and trying to make them change, on an internet message board no less, is pretty arrogant and selfish.

    Whole lot of implying how to be a fan in this thread. So Jack is pessimistic (or "realistic," in his words). Who cares? How does that affect you? We all approach fandom differently. We're all rooting for the same outcome.

    What the Brewers Series is Telling Us

    In the three most recent road series vs contenders (@NYY, @HOU, @MIL), the Sox have been outscored 54-15. Obviously this doesn’t definitively prove anything one way or another (injuries, etc), but it’d be foolish to completely dismiss it because they have a cushy division lead on four not good teams.

    I get what you're saying here, it's a low bar. I agree that even decent (but not great) performances by Eloy/Yaz/Robert are an improvement over the current situation, but I guess what I'm wondering is...how much of an actual improvement is that? Are 'non world beater' versions of Eloy/Yaz/Robert enough to make the Sox AL favorites? Not asking you or anyone in particular - no one knows - but it's just something I'm thinking about. This is a great point.

    Nah, I was never in favor of them adding a big bat like Gallo. As you said, it’s just hoping our guys come back healthy and productive. But it seems that a large number of folks are already concluding that Eloy, Luis and Yaz will come back and perform at their best.

    Getting those three regulars back of course makes them a better team, but there seems to be this assumption/expectation that they will all come back and perform at a high level while avoiding any setbacks. It’s certainly possible, but I don’t know how realistic it is.

    Cleveland about to blow it up?

    Eh, I see it both ways. A couple months ago on here, I read that Detroit's pitching prospects were "busty" and that Stiever could be the centerpiece in a big trade.
  9. The team is in a great spot, especially considering the injuries, but they haven't won a damn thing. The storybook season and comparisons to 05 are all warm and fuzzy, but the 06 team was also cruising in the first half.
  10. To be fair, I didn't understand what you were saying in the bolded part below either.

    Donaldson can hit as many homers as he wants as long as his team keeps getting buried in the standings.

    Bummer, Marshall to IL; Kopech back, Fry up

    I was just amused at the complete opposite responses back to back.

    It was an either an accident or the world’s worst recap of the first half.
