    Red Sox in season discussion

    This is an incredibly bad take and a worse post. You’re a mod. Your words therefore carry triple the impact, plus the implied threat, of any other poster’s. I have never, in the entirety of my time here, addressed another poster using these kinds of words. I’m not sure what motivated your...

    Red Sox in season discussion

    So the Sox are halfway through the DREADED 14 STRAIGHT GAMES AGAINST THE YANKEES AND JAYS. They’ve gone 3-4 despite going without a large number of injured players, are second in the AL East, are in the top wild card spot, and have the third best record in the AL. I sure hope they do well over...

    Sawafuckinmura. Did not see those two innings coming. Huge lift.

    Be easy, Sunshine. Just a few people who like the Red Sox discussing a prospect we’re rooting for. Nothing to troll here.

    On a more serious note, just want to say how happy I am for Jeter Downs. No idea where things go from here, but I have a significant soft spot for prospects who battle adversity and find a way to keep bobbing up above the surface. It’s why it’s so hard for me to give up on Bobby D. Downs...

    Yeah but that’s just an objective measure.

    Wacha likely going on IL, Will not start tomorrow

    It’s an interesting question. I think it’s important to the team to be seen as contending, so I also don’t see them selling pieces. Red Sox fans (not you!) have become such a curious lot. So spoiled by an ownership group that has delivered four titles that they believe it’s beneath the team to...

    Wacha likely going on IL, Will not start tomorrow

    The answer today is the same as it was as the beginning of the season. Zero. The Red Sox are in the middle of a rebuild. They’re doing it while fielding a good but not great team that will contend for a wild card but not a championship. Bloom is not going to sell off pieces of the future to...

    7/6/2022 - TB @ Sox - Clobber Corey Kluber

    I don’t know why it gives you such joy to piss people off but it clearly does. It seems clear to me from the reactions you regularly inspire in others that very few posters here appreciate your contributions or believe that they elevate the discourse around here. I wish that motivated you to do...

    YES! Great inning. Nerves but got through it. Very poised play to start the DP.

    Lester/Bucchholz/Papelbon worked out pretty well. But your point is a good one. It’s been very rare indeed!

    This is fair. As you point out, he’s been used in low-leverage spots, and I think there are more valuable options available for for his roster spot, but he hasn’t been as bad as my throwaway comment suggested. I definitely don’t want to see him in any important spots, though, and it’s pretty...

    The Sox will give Bello miles of runway to make it as a starter over the next couple of years. He has three plus to above-average pitches and is on a different prospect level than any other pitcher in the system. I do think he might throw out of the pen for the Sox this season as they seek to...

    Good move. And as indicated above, there are plenty of other arms currently on the 40 man that can be rather painlessly dumped to create a path for the Worcester contingent. Sawamura and Brasier doubtless can hear the footsteps.

    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...

    Red Sox in season discussion

    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...
