    Cancel Spring Training 🙂…don’t wish injuries on anyone and hopefully he is okay but if one team can overcome/absorb injuries it’s Steve Cohen and the Mets so I don’t feel too bad

    If not the Sox, I want the Mets to win 3 titles in a row just so cheap ownership across MLB has no excuses anymore. 

    Cohen and the SD ownership have it right. 

    You play to win the game. You don't play to just play it. /hermedwards

    I'm not all that optimistic about the Sox, but how can you say the Twins lineup is superior without, you know, overrating the crap out of the Twins hitters?

    If we get the same baseball as last year, Eloy and Robert are the only Sox hitters capable of 20+ HR. Maybe Grandal if he stays healthy. 

    Twins have a way more powerful lineup. Even with all of the crap, the Sox still hit for average last year. It didn't matter much.

    I’m not sure how anyone can look at the two rosters side by side and think the Twins are better.

    The Twins lineup is superior and the they also have way more depth on the pitching side, even if the Sox have higher end pitchers at the top of the rotation. 

    The Sox are, at best, a 3rd place team in the ALC and depending on what KC does they could even be 4th. The only team the Sox are definitively better than is Detroit. 

    There's a reason why even with bounceback seasons from Sox players, Zips has the Sox at 74 wins.

    The most annoying part of this is the value in this contract was that if Clevinger returns to pre-surgery form, next year's option would be a huge value. With all the drama, Sox might just move on regardless if Clevinger pitches great. So an exoneration would be nice for this Jerry Reinsdorf-owned-franchise but he probably did something close to what is being alleged regardless of how the MLB's investigation plays out. 

    I think it's a mutual option, so it's really a 1-year deal that has $4M deferred to next season. 

    If Clevinger performs well, he's hitting the market again anyway. If he doesn't, the Sox decline the option. 

    Anyway, I think I heard somewhere that Jesse Rogers said that Clevinger isn't getting suspended and that it should be announced before the end of ST.

    You mean you don't like un-athletic 1B with "meh" power and no real stand out tools?

    I was listening to the Sox Machine podcast and Vaughn is not an MLB hitter against right handed sliders. 

    He was something like 3rd from last against sliders from RHP in all of baseball in 2022. 

    I don't remember which metric they used, I tried to look it up and couldn't find it.
