    7-23 GT: Sox @ Brewers (7:10pm)

    Why are you surprised that a line-up missing Nick, Eloy, Lu, and Grandal would have problems beating teams with good pitching? These MIL pitchers are laying waste to teams with their full complement of hitters, and you think we should handle them with nearly half of our opening day starters out? Some of y'all really need to level set your expectations.
  2. If no trade is made, that just leaves Leury as the only backup infielder (unless I'm miscounting). I guess Vaughn could move to 1B or 3B in a pinch but then you're putting Eloy in the OF. I hope you're right, though.....really want Goodwin to stay on the team.
  3. The OF is going to present quite a conundrum. I mean, you can't cut Billy as he's no doubt established himself as one of the leaders and favorite personalities in the clubhouse. Goodwin is a lefty with a little bit of pop and I think he, too, is having the ride of his life. I think you've got to release Goodwin if it's between these two but I really hope we don't come to regret letting him go. These upcoming decisions is where I think TLR's experience is going to really pay off. I have a very strong feeling he has his finger on the pulse of this clubhouse and knows which personalities possess the intangible "TWTW", guys you just can't cut without throwing a real wrench into the works of the clubhouse spirit and culture. Today's episode of Red Line Radio had an interview with Engel. One of the things he spoke about was how each player is responsible for holding other players accountable, day in and day out. With that type of culture in place, I think any potential moves will go beyond simple statistics.

    Luis Robert cleared for Rehab Assignment

    I don't see any reason to rush him, whatsoever. Let him get his 20 games in the minors to shake the rust off. Just adding Eloy to the lineup is going to be a huge boost, both in production and team confidence. Save the other shot in the arm for when he's truly ready.
  5. Everyone points to that game but I can actually point to an AB. I can't remember the team or the pitcher, maybe someone else will, but there was a relief pitcher that varied their wind-up timing and only did it to Yermin. I'm telling you, that AB got in his head and, imo, began his demise.
  6. Good news. And I was bringing cash so that's good to know they aren't accepting it. Thanks, man.
  7. Coming up from ATL this weekend and hitting the DH on Monday...first game since '18 (thanks COVID!). Curious if with full capacity the concessions are back to normal? I know earlier in the season y'all were complaining the lines were far too long and some of the stands weren't open. Just trying to figure out if I should pound reebs and brats in the lot before or if I can enjoy the food and drinks inside without spending a game's worth of time in lines.

    Sox acquire Deivy Grullon

    Didn't he hit like a 450+' bomb today? Had no idea it was his first game in Charlotte.

    ReyLo skipped at AAA: Spot start? Hug watch? stayed tuned

    Both players only have value if they're on an MLB roster next season so it's got to be an absolute garbage team that is hoping at least one of them can stick in MLB, but it's not enough for a guy like Frazier or Gallo. I'm thinking, if these guys are in fact part of a trade, it's to COL or AZ.

    Cleveland about to blow it up?

    And that DET challenge isn't coming for a couple of years. The fact that the Sox should own the division this season, and the following two, SHOULD play a big role in the decisions the FO makes at this deadline. Mortgaging depth you'll use in 2022-2023 to acquire a rental in 2021 doesn't match the goals of a leveraging a competitive window. There's a big difference between a team catching lightning in a bottle by having an unexpectedly great season, giving them all the motivation in the world to push all their chips in, and a team working within a window of 3-5 seasons where they are expected to be WS contenders every season. The latter has to be more conservative on the trade front or you end up like the Chicago Cubs.

    Rodon, Lynn, Hendriks, Anderson all stars

    Dude, it was Manfred. No doubt about it.

    Rodon, Lynn, Hendriks, Anderson all stars

    Stoney was just on Twitter this morning mentioning that his start in the '80 ASG was one of his top career highlights and how much he hoped Lynn or Rodon would get to experience the same honor. Ohtani didn't earn the start, but Manfred gonna Manfred.

    They're highly competitive professional athletes....of course they care. They may not b**** to the media but there's no way they "don't care".

    Rodon, Lynn, Hendriks, Anderson all stars

    Ohtani doesn't even qualify for pitching stats yet this season, having not even pitching 70 innings this season. His ERA, if qualified, would be 12th in the AL, and he's carrying a 1.20 WHIP. If I'm Rodon or Lynn, I'm livid.
  15. Was that the year he got hurt or was that when they sat him for the playoffs to keep him from getting hurt?
