    Color Guy: Who did it better?

    When I 1st heard him, I thought Gordan sounded a lot like Darin Jackson until I listened a little more closely and heard the slight twang.

    Hahn: Too early to know if Sox will be buyers

    Pretty impressive stuff from Schwarber. 3 days ago Escobar was out homering him 15 to 13 . Now with the 5 in last 2 days it's 18-15 Schwarber.

    Nope and the Sox aren't the only team doing it either.

    The Offense - Near Term Actions

    I would add Lamb also has to be in the lineup because he has the same amount of HR's as Moncada in 3X less PA's plus his OBP is pretty good. I don't like using Vaughn every day because you can't count on him to turn it around vs. RHP and Leury ,as was pointed out, is hitting better and adds far more speed and defense than Vaughn. You also have Goodwin against RHP who might be a better choice than Leury if you happen to think he can keep performing against RHP like he has since being brought up in the SSS. It's outstanding so far. Vaughn is superb vs LHP so for that alone I wouldn't sent him down and while he's around I'm sure he will keep getting PT against RHP but every day, no.

    Eduardo Escobar Rumor Thread

    I'd give up either of them before Ramos or Rodriquez.

    No don't do that ! Your time and effort here is greatly appreciated !! Ron certainly won't be picking up the slack.

    Eduardo Escobar Rumor Thread

    They have more than that. Teams will definitely be asking about Ramos and Rodriquez with Kanny 2 19 yr. olds with big upside and decent performances so far.

    Eduardo Escobar Rumor Thread

    Hopefully he's fine .But even if he isn't he's got 5 weeks til the TDL and acquiring him injured with an expected prognosis of a return to health relatively soon ,he might be cheaper.

    I don't think he or Jason is going on the road this year nor any of the crew that normally would accompany them. Sox cutting expenses.

    Hahn: Too early to know if Sox will be buyers

    They could because they have some good pieces there and since some of them are very young it's more about the tools than performance with them. But I guarantee Kelley, Thompson, Krogman , Horn and Dahlquist and especially Jose Rodriquez and Bryan Ramos would be very interesting to other teams. Practically anyone could be used as a throw in among the names I didn't mention.

    Hahn: Too early to know if Sox will be buyers

    2008 They got Ken Griffey, Jr. 1/2 hr. before the TDL. 2010 Got Edwin Jackson for Daniel Hudson and David Holmberg. 2012 They traded Eduardo Escobar and Pedro Hernandez for Francisco Liriano and he wasn't very good that season with the Twins or the Sox. Youkilis they got 6/24 . They also brought up Danks 6/7 and he pitched about as well as Liriano. Brett Myers 7/21 . He pitched decently for the Sox but fora guy who had 19 saves when acquired , he ended up with none for the Sox. So realistically if Covid is still an excuse not to spend and limiting acquisitions due to not wanting to hurt what's left of the farm system or not having the bullets needed, I'm not expecting more than 2 guys. One for the bullpen and 1 for the lineup.

    Hahn: Too early to know if Sox will be buyers

    I'd say great if they also got Escobar but he brings nothing besides LH power. Would help to get that sure, very helpful in fact ,but speed, defense, versatility all lacking . Escobar is helpful in more ways so more valuable. He can fill in for an injured Moncada and take Mendick's spot in the everyday lineup and switch hits so his power plays from both sides of the plate. 10 of Escobars 15 HR's come against RHP . 17 of Schwarbers 18 are off RHP. It's hard to pick one over the other but I'd lean to Escobar in case Moncada has any extended absences. But give me both and I'm even happier. If the Sox can manage that and a really good RH relief pitcher. That might be expecting too much from them. I don't think they are that bold or truly would make the commitment necessary to win it all this year. Hopefully the Nationals will come around to selling but we already know the Diamondbacks will be ,so ,theoretically Escobar could be a help sooner. I'd also be shocked if the Sox don't slow play any acquisitions and some of their targets get snatched by another team.

    6-19 GT: Sox @ Astros (6:15pm)

    Dodgers too went through a bad stretch of losing something like 15 of 20 . Sox aren't even close to that. Dodgers have some tough competition . The Sox for the most part don't. Anything can happen but I would suspect they will continue to beat the bad teams and stay on top and get much better when they make trades and get Eloy and Robert up to speed. I really don't care how they get too the best record in the AL but that should be the goal. They play very well at home.

    I think it's rare to go from MVP to finished. Most players have a slow decline rather than all at once. He'll pick it up not to MVP status but he won't be a liability, Ron has sounded the Jose death knell before. Sooner or later he will be right and then what? He'll tell us all he told us so when he gets it right for the 1st time in 10 such predictions ?

    So now we get the pinch hitters instead of them with men on base .

    Ouch ! time for Nik Turley or Ofriedy Gomez from AAA.

    Tony rarely pinch hit's . It's annoying . He couldve pinch hit for Mercedes or Vaughn.

    Hey thanks again for the link you gave me earlier in the season. I didn't get around to using it until the inning that just finished but it's nice to have the use of it. I used bilas sports one.

    6-19 GT: Sox @ Astros (6:15pm)

    That's not a bad thing . All good teams do it. Just have to stay patient and wait for reinforcements while maintaining the lead in the Central and within shouting distance of the best record in the AL. They are already a strong team but with flaws . Fix some of the flaws and and wait for 2 of our best players to return and I really believe this team has a good shot at getting to the World Series.

    I assume you are here because you want to be here. If not I'm sure the mods can accommodate you. Caulfield abides by the rules. Being negative or talking about other teams is not against the rules.

    I hear ya. At least you aren't taking it out on anyone here so kudos for that.

    You should probably simmer down. You attacked Caulfield 1st and brought his wife into it and then threatened him with physical harm. Some of that stuff is ban worthy not to mention the ageism.
