You mean people aren’t banging down the door for slow DHs without game changing power??

I still think he can put up a Mike Sweeney type career. 

There is a serious power outage with this organization so I'm not ready to say this is the "real" Andrew Vaughn.

I personally don't like TA at leadoff because he doesn't work an at bat or count.  Pollock isn't ideal but he's the only thing remotely close. 

This team just has a crazy amount of uncompetitive at bats.

TA is and was a better hitter than Pollock. He also gets on base more and is a better base runner. I get TA isn't the ideal profile for a lead off hitter, but obviously Pollock isn't at this point of his career either.

urquidy strikes out Vaughn and Eloy with only having to throw one actual strike

That's all the playoff series was and Hahn is too stupid to realize this is how it would go with building this roster.

A good organization would have made several changes over the course of the season, instead of continuing to shove a square peg in a round hole. I’d like to think there will be major changes this off-season from the top to the bottom, but we know that won’t happen. Every player should be available and if that includes their little Cuban connection, so be it.

Don't love playing the worst defensive outfield imaginable with a pitcher who strikes out 16% of hitters.

Add one of the worst defensive infields playing tonight.  Big Energy just cost us 2 runs.

He is terrible base runner.  He is the better hitter but doesn't work at lead off.

Do the Sox go over scouting reports with their hitters before games? Do they have any plan at all ?

This entire organization is crap. 

 

 

No one has ever accused them of being prepared.  Everyone knows the only way this franchise gets turned around.

FS1 announcers tagged Sox as worst team in majors for swinging on pitches out of zone…particularly Jimenez with barely .100 avg for hits when down 2 strikes and yep he missed the slider well outside the zone…sit down Eloy….

Vaughn and Eloy swung at some of the worst pitches out of the zone of the season.  This not playofftype performance.

On every 2 strike count in his career he's been terrible . Even on 3-2 his slugging is only .356. The 0-2, 1-2 counts I understand most hitters suck but when you get to 2-2 and 3-2 it should be better than he is.
