    Sox @ Royals 7/28, 7:10

    What I liked this season was the improvement in his defense and playing within himself. He was trying too hard last year and to start the season, ended up making bad fielding and baserunning plays, including the one that injured his shoulder (running through the third base coach's stop sign, getting out and hurt all on one play). If he can find a way to stay healthy, he should be OK. That said, I want an upgrade in infield depth from Mendick/Garcia, someone you'd feel comfortable with filling in the middle infield, possibly also 3rd base, for a few weeks and not fret about either side of the equation. The Sox should be fine in the OF, but need more depth in the infield across the organization. They made a good step with this year's draft, but it will take time for these players to work their way through the system. The one true "need" for the post-season, or to survive the stretch to get there, are relievers Tony is going to use. You are already postponing Kopech and Crochet's development for yet another year out of desperation because you weren't willing to spend to bring in a few solid set-up men this off-season.

    Kopech is the best pitcher in the bullpen. He needs to work on being the best pitcher in the rotation. Don't see that happening until there is a change in manager.

    Well, at least the players Rick acquired this month have taken the sting out of this one. [Narrator: Rich Hahn acquired Deivy Grullon a few weeks earlier]

    And Liam's Tourette Syndrome act has gotten old quick.

    And that's the ballgame. Fuck you Tony.

    In games a good manager can make a difference, the Sox are underperforming. Sox record in 1 run games: 10-13 .434 Sox record in 2-4 run games: 30-17 .638 Sox record in 5+ run games: 20-11 .645

    So glad Tony took out Vaughn instead of Leury. Get the benefit of his clutch hitting.

    Yes, he's not an issue in LF. If anything, you take Leury out in RF, but you can't because there are no other infielders available if someone goes down, another reason Garcia should never start in the OF with the current roster, there are plenty of OFers here. So sick of Rain Man's decisions.

    Kopech will remain as a reliever as long as Pop Pop can eat soup.

    I remember when posters were saying Lucas wasn't even good enough to make the playoff rotation several weeks ago. Good times.

    Kopech is warming up, will likely pitch the 8th.

    More terrible fundamentals by the Royals, Sox fortunate once again.
