  1. While last year sucked and he shouldn't be on the roster this year, Leury is still a good dude who was fun to root for for nine years.

  2. I personally wish Leury the best. A good guy, always a smile on his face. He could still be useful as a 26th man and I expect he’ll find a new home quickly once he’s eventually released. Not his fault Tony and the FO grossly overvalued him. Good luck, Leury!

  4. Looks like this will end up being on the money. And honestly, I’m much happier with this bench arrangement than a lot of different outcomes. Burger playing 3B everyday in Charlotte makes all the sense in the world. He will be needed at some point this year.

  5. I like Leury. I really do. I appreciate everything he gave us, and I’ll never forget his huge HR against Houston. But this was the correct decision. I wish him well, wherever he ends up.

  6. After thinking on it, I hope they honor Leury's tenure with the team eventually. A statue is way too much, as is number retirement. But goddamn do they love naming stands after people. Give me Leury's Rainbow Cone stand or something, to really hammer home his utility and upbeat personality.

  8. You know what would solve this problem….not spending your money on a bunch of tier2/tier3 level players and actually signing stars instead of trying to bargain shop

  9. I actually felt sorry for Leury what with Tony trotting him out there every day. Probably everybody on the team including Leury knew it was fucked up, but what's he gonna do? "Naw, Skip. Better not pencil me in today. Have you noticed the guys? And the natives in the stands mighty restless."

  12. The only way Billy should be on the team is if Colas isn't the RF and I like Billy. But they aren't going to take Benin10d or Robert for defense, and they are telling us Colas is a good enough defender to perhaps back up in CF. Billy would be yhe worlds greatest PR, especially in extra innings , but a roster spot is too valuable for that. OtOH, Tony isn't there to fall in love and start leading him off.

  13. Garfiens podcast with Hahn that was released recently (today?) specifically touches on Billy and the bench. Talks about how Billy is valuable but that you’d also like to have a guy who can take 4 ABs a couple times a week (insinuating he can’t basically). Also touched on opt outs and keeping guys you may otherwise lose (Alberto). And that they’re going to have hard convos with guys that should be big leaguers (Burger and Sheets). And that contract status will not impact decisions (Leury). He didn’t exactly close the door on anything but I felt Seby, Sheets and Alberto are locks after listening and that last spot down to the field of Billy, Leury, Burger and Romy. Haseley was never mentioned.

  14. I think they keep Hamilton. They seem to be emphasizing the running game and with these new dumbass rules that guy will be a weapon pinch running in the late innings for Grandal, Eloy, Vaughn, etc. If they really want to win games in the margins this is how you do it.

  15. With regard to Haseley, Let’s see in the hitters haven in Charlotte first. He was pretty dreadful there last season.

  16. I was very skeptical of this hire at first, but I think today proves that Grifol is going to help modernize the f*** out of this organization. It’s incredibly early, but his hire looks like it could end up being a game changer for us.

  17. I got pissed on by my cat earlier today and then the bastard scratched me shortly thereafter, so this good news is very much needed. My 90 year half blind nan could give us more than this dude could/did.

  18. Very pleasantly surprised by this move and it has nothing to do with Leury personally. It does however have everything to do with him as a baseball player. He brings nothing to the team to make them better. And maybe, just maybe the Sox finally have a Manager that will put winning above everything else.

  22. I know Leury is better than what he was last year, but I always felt he was overvalued by the front office and is a really dumb baseball player. More importantly, he’s just not a great fit for this roster. Glad we are moving on.

  23. It does fascinate me how we all, I am including myself, are so into who are going to be the last guys on the roster every year. Always refreshing, don't want to get the news 30 seconds later than I could, then 2 weeks into the season, hope they are all DFAd or sent to Charlotte.

  24. This would result in Eloy playing way more OF than I’d like because the only utility Burger has in this scenario is DHing against LHP and Colas (or Beni) on the bench.

  25. I can’t see it happening, but this is a Rick Hahn designed team and the dude loves playing his 1B / DH types out of position.

  27. I believe if he gets picked up by another team and signs for league minimum, the Sox will still have to pay him his full salary less what the other club is paying him.

  31. I found him likable until Ricky started over using him. Then came TLR, then the awful deal, and it was hard to separate likeable dude from overpaid declining player being horribly misused and overused.

  32. I’m guessing if the Moncada stuff was injury related one of the beat reporters would have tweeted about it by now.

  36. This has been the most boring spring training in recent memory and the fact we’re all excited to see how the bench shakes out only reinforces that point.

  37. Just the excitement leading up to the season ans nothing else to really talk about other than meaningless ST at bats.

  38. Reading into the Sox announcing the lineup, but the beat reporters, especially Van Schouwen not posting a picture with the backups, I’m guessing the clubhouse is still closed and they’re telling players what’s up.

  39. Sheets in the lineup today…he’s making the roster IMO.

  43. Burger over Sheets would be curious. Both Burger and Sheets seems nutso and would be a misuse of limited bench spots IMO. Alberto feels like a lock to me, Sheets as well. Romy or Leury vs a real 4th OF is anyone’s guess right now.

  45. Kings fan here. Our best season in forever, and have such a great young team. I think will not get top seed, but looking good for at least the third.

  46. I think he’s talking about the way he acts after a minor injury. Perhaps “dramatic” is a better word than soft. Sometimes he looks like he got shot in the leg, and it turns out to be more minor than the bruise I got on my thigh when I walked into the corner of my coffee table.
