    Marshall Needs To Be Sent Down

    It very well may be that Marshall had his good 2 years, and that's it, and it's fortunate that the Sox were there for his 2 good years. That said, there really is no one in AAA to replace him that I can tell. So just hang on for another month or 2.

    The Yermin-Vaughn-Abreu Conundrum

    Vaughn stays in left. Abreu is likely gone after next year. If either Eloy or Yermin could learn to play a position competently, then there would be no conundrum. If they can't, one gets traded. I just think that Eloy in left isn't wise. Bad OF defense has indirect effects on the team that aren't picked up in stats.

    Rodon

    I think he gets paid, although likely not by the Sox. The talent is undeniable, he's healthy and putting it together. There's some risk, but he gets paid.

    The Say Sorry to Rick Hahn Thread

    This is the most egregious, but there were many other ridiculous moves. And while he's done little that was overtly damaging during the rebuild, the org. should be teeming in depth after all this, and it isn't. And he doesn't have the confidence of the owner.

    The Say Sorry to Rick Hahn Thread

    I'll say sorry to him iff: 1)Sox win the WS. Or 2) If the Sox don't win the division this year, I'll say "Sorry Rick, but 10 years is beyond enough time. It's time to hit the bricks."

    2021 MLB Draft Thread

    The full windup motion - the way he has that mini pause at the belt; a little jerky. I'm not saying I think he's going to bust. It's just that among the top 6 or so college players, I think has the highest chance to bust.

    2021 MLB Draft Thread

    Leiter is my bust pick in this year's draft. Some Fulmer vibes.

    The Makings of a Juggernaut?

    Need more young players to emerge from the farm; depth needed to stay there and for it to last more than a couple of seasons. And they may develop it - a lot of productive farms aren't at the top of the rankings.

    4-19 GT: Sox @ Boston (10:10am)

    Burdi, good gracious. Still trying to overcome the FO's 2015-2016 clowning.

    Lynn to IL; Burdi up

    It didn't look good the second after they made the trade.

    Corbin Burnes

    Not when you have several players on the roster who can't hit a lick.

    Corbin Burnes

    The marginal from adding another good starter is probably less than the marginal benefit from adding even an average left-fielder, who would come at a much lower price. It's simply not an area of need.

    What if Yermin Mercedes keeps hitting?

    No one really knows whether this is legit or a flash. But to me the difference between Mercedes and the typical AAAA player is that the AAAA player has sat in AAA for multiple years. Mercedes hasn't. He sat in A ball a long time with Tampa, presumably to develop his defense. But once the Sox drafted him, he moved up pretty quickly and hit at each level. Heck he hit in Birmingham when no one else could.

    The Jarred Kelenic Appreciation Thread

    We'd have been much better off the last 9 years if Hahn hadn't made any trades. Hopefully we make the best of Giolito, Cease, Eloy, Moncada and Kopech. But you can segregate his work. Trade for prospects: decent. Trade for veterans: awful.
