    Red Sox in season discussion

    I think Houck is no longer being considered for the rotation by the Red Sox. It's an interesting point about the 40-man, and one that might be worth its own thread. Here are the pitchers currently on the 40-man, per MLB.com: PITCHERS Matt Barnes IL-15 Brayan Bello Ryan Brasier Kutter Crawford...

    Paxton, too. But Apisith's point remains. You need more than five starters over the course of a season, and a lot of these young arms have the potential to contribute both as starters and relievers over the next couple of years. I don't see the Sox parting with any of Winck, Seabold, Walter, or...

    I don’t believe that Bloom will trade Winck or Seabold, nor do I believe that they should be considered part of the 40-man crunch. They’ve both shown enough to believe that they can contribute in a bullpen role, where their stuff will play up, they make peanuts, and each has flashed enough that...

    Meddling is generally understood to mean micromanaging on a daily kind of level. You know, the kind of thing the original Steinbrenner was famous for. It’s laughable to call Henry a meddler when, if anything, the criticism with him has typically been that he’s not engaged enough because he...

    This is almost certainly not true. Since the firing of Lucchino, Henry and Co have clearly hired the guy they thought was best for the moment and let him run the organization his way. Otherwise, you would not have seen such radically different philosophies and approaches in back to back GMs. It...

    Good teams sometimes lose series to bad teams. It happens. Good offenses sometimes go cold for stretches. It happens. I personally would like to see Bloom make a couple of moves to improve the bullpen now. I think the time is right, and I think there are some interesting options in Worcester...

    Andruw Jones wants to know what else he has to do.

    Youk is great. Give the man the full time role. EDIT: Full time meaning the non-Eck role.

    Great find. Thank you, that is the article I was thinking of. Let’s hope Yorke can get his groove back.

    Jarren Duran: Improving in His Second Shot

    Wait, the Sox have 14 games coming up against the Yankees and the Rays? I hadn’t heard. I hope they do well so they can salvage their season and not become sellers.
