    Nice way to bounce back and get the split. Enjoy the day off boys!

    I'm fine with Burr 7th, Bummer 8th, Hendriks 9th until further notice, Foster the first to go down when Kopech returns.

    Bummer needs to go back out there. Burr should have returned for the 7th based on his quick work in the 6th.
  5. I listen to games, watch only a few (don't have cable). I don't see a lot of ripping on Yoan in game threads, nor criticism on the radio broadcasts. Does Steve Stone throw a lot of shade at Yoan Moncada during games, and do fans think Yoan doesn't play hard on a regular basis? Not saying Yoan's efforts are on par with Jose Abreu's, don't see many across baseball who have that level of intensity. However, when I read media or posts here, listen to radio broadcasts, or watch highlights, beyond criticism at times about not calling off a fly / not listening to call outs on a fly ball, I don't see much criticism of Moncada who I really like, and feel plays hard batting and defensively. When I think of "lack of effort" or "interest", I think of a player like Javier Baez, great at times, totally uninterested at others. I don't see any current Sox player in the same light, including Yoan. Watching more games last year when they were televised on WGN, and seeing highlights and on broadcasts, I felt Yoan was busting his ass while gutting out terrible COVID symptoms last season. Not trying to have a discussion about Yoan vs. Jose, but rather does Steve Stone have valid criticism of Yoan in terms of having a "lack of effort and interest" during ballgames on a regular basis?

    Vaughn in LF, Lamb out in RF with Gonzalez shifting.

    Wish they would have brought back Burr this inning.

    Grandal can play 1B with Collins catching Rodon.

    Abreu could use a day off Friday to clear his head.

    Nice job there, hope he gets one more inning.

    Glad they are going with Burr here.

    Didn't work out, but like that they let Dylan hit there. PS - Wow, based on what Len said, they will get the DP on it after the replay.

    Nice way to get out of it without a run. Well done Cease.

    Crochet up in the bullpen.

    Polanco is cutting down runs left and right, would love him in the OF.

    It is my favorite "new" park. SF, Seattle and Minnesota also worth a trip among the new parks. Atlanta, Miami and Texas are the only current ones I haven't visited, but don't expect the list to change after I do.

    Rare to see a player get two errors on the same play.

    Sloppiness leads to more runs.

    Happy Birthday Tim!

    Welcome to the Majors, Luis! He actually had a higher xBA on his shot (.600) than Leury (.540).

    Miracles Do Happen!!! Nice shot Leury!

    Agreed, beyond of what should be a day or two off per month (same with Tim and Abreu), they are the best options. Teams will get beat, it's baseball, but the team this streak has been lethargic and sloppy beyond a few efforts like Rodon and Lucas. When everyone returns, and Tony feels more comfortable giving the infield core a day or two off, without having to play banged up or ill like Yoan and Jose, hopefully communication will improve. Still need to drill the OFers to hit the cutoff.

    The pitcher is so slow, they really need a pitch clock.

    Nice Abreu could take there, didn't have to swing because of Yoan running.

    The sloppy play from the weekend, the rundown, Moncada's throws, and then the dropped ball Sunday, though that should have been called by Lamb. Moncada's drifting into others the entire season.
