    Ime Udoka suspended for the 22-23 season

    Yeah, I'm having a hard time reading Woj's tweet as being pro-Udoka spin. Just from that text alone it looks like Udoka likely committed sexual harassment on top of having an inappropriate relationship with a subordinate. Even if there's nothing more, I don't see how he coaches for the Cs again.

    Who plays right field for the Sox in 2023?

    Ah yes, you've already proven that you have no idea how WAR works. I had forgotten. For everyone else -- unless you expect Cordero to play 1B again, it's a completely useless measure of his value going forward. Here's his actual offensive value. 2018: 104 wRC+ 2019: 134 wRC+ 2020: 93 wRC+...

    Who plays right field for the Sox in 2023?

    Still trying to figure out how Verdugo (105 wRC+ going into today) and Kike (76 wRC+) are absolute locks for the 2023 starting lineup. but Corder (92 wRC+) is a DFA candidate.

    9/30 - I'll Huff and I'll Puff. . .

    In 2020 the entire staff had a 5.58 ERA and a 5.19 FIP. That's beyond bad.

    Meh, 2019 was okay. 80 starts from Sale/Price/EdRo. None of them were dominant but they were all better than any of our 2022 starters other than Wacha.

    2020 was worse. Way worse.

    Trevor Story: 2B or not 2B. That is the question.

    Who plays right field for the Sox in 2023?

    Since I started this mini-thread, let me say that I wouldn't put myself firmly in the "put Cordero on the starting 26" camp. But i am in the camp of "Maybe the Sox would be better off putting the money toward Bogaerts, Devers, a DH, and some SPs" and letting Cordero/Refsnyder/Duran duke it our...

    Who plays right field for the Sox in 2023?

    Because pretty much everybody sucks in their first year or so in the majors. It's way too early to rule him out as a major leaguer. His negative WAR this year is mostly because of his defense at 1B where he doesn't belong. He had a 92 wRC+.

    Surprised Cordero only listed as a platoon possibility. I wouldn't be hugely surprised if he wins the job outright.

    9/28 - When you're hot, you're hot.

    Do the Sox brass really think Ort has a future on this team?

    9/27 - Seventh Time's the Charm

    The AAA influx has been underwhelming at best, but Wong seems like a keeper. I'm fine with him as backup C next year.

    I don't know what was worse, the throw or the scoop.
