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

    I really wonder what happened to Lopez? In 2017 and 18 his stuff was better than Giolito"s. And many people - some here at soxtalk- thought he would be better than Gio. Was it mental? Did his arm go bad? Sad to see such a talent go so bad.

    Draft Day 3 Thread rounds 11-20

    That's a good point. Because last year the juniors that were good enough to be drafted between rounds 6 - 30 didn't happen. Really a different senior crop this year than in previous drafts.

    Engel back, Eaton DFA

    This. Couldn't agree more. Worked midnights. Laid down this morning and spanky is on the team. Just woke up and he's been released. Wow.
  5. There's no way he would've said that

    Sheets Returning (Per WSD)

    Might as well bring Burger up here too honestly. Its practically a AAA team up here now anyways and Abrue needs to rest and may be out a week or two. Sheets and Burger could infuse some much needed life in this lineup.

    Are Jason and Steve on the road with the team or are they in Chicago? Just wondering the covid protocol

    Spring Training thread

    I couldn't agree more Rabbit! He's always had the slider and it's a good pitch. But the 4-seamer, well that seems to be dancing all around the plate right now. It's really throwing the batters off and That's the difference right now.

    2021 Bullpen Hype Thread

    I agree. This absolutely is the strength of this team - More so than the offense even. And like you said, an arm goes down - there's a couple ready to replace em down in Charlotte. But the thing that will make this bullpen lethal is that it will be managed by LaRussa.

    Extensions You’d Like to See

    Yeah I could see either one of those happening. I'm definitely ok with those extensions

    Jimmy Cordero...the forgotten breakout candidate

    With the announcement of Kopech and Crochet starting the season in the pen and figuring a 13 man pitching staff? Dont really know how TLR will do it - not to mention what to do with Lopez? Unless Cordero has a lights out spring he's the odd man out. No room on this staff.
