    The Amazing Criswell?

    And now I just want to chime in that I'm sick AF seeing Dalbec. Put F'in Refsnyder at 1B. Why the fuck is Yoshida still in his now 5th day off after finally getting hot. (The answer is Devers on this... just frustrating)

    The Amazing Criswell?

    Well... again, Giolito and Pivetta were considered "horses". Not disagreeing with you but maybe Bailey would have broken Montgomery's shoulder too?

    Bello to IL with lat tightness

    They should just do Houck and Crawford now for the Fuck of it

    The Amazing Criswell?

    Don't get me wrong.... I'd rather have Montgomery starting and Whitlock would, I'd bet, still be throwing pitches from the bullpen. So far though, the trust that Bailey/Breslow has shown towards the "young" pitchers is paying off. The two guys who are injured were considered work horses and...

    The Amazing Criswell?

    Was Criswell really the 9th option back in Spring Training? Assuming the Sox were never interested in anyone after they got Giolito (and generally seems they were correct at this point.... in a way..... The projected rotation was Giolito, Bello, Pivetta, Crawford, Houck (?) with Whitlock as the...

    2024 Lineup (What we actually have - no trade speculation.)

    If Devers can take the field, the lineup every day should be- Duran CF Oneill LF Devers 3B Abreu RF Yoshida DH Refsnyder 1B Valdez 2B/Grissom Wong/Mcguire C Rafaela SS PERIOD. This lineup should be able to score enough to score enough to get some wins enough that even if nothing happens...

    2024 Lineup (What we actually have - no trade speculation.)

    Game thread but Valdez IS a guy that needs AAA time (I still don’t think Rafaela is though). There’s a difference between struggling and looking overwhelmed- Cedanne is the former, Valdez the latter.

    Cleveland 4/23, Houck Yeah, It's Tanner Time

    Maybe he got into some spat with Cora. I know I would.

    Casas has a left rib fracture. He will be out "a while." (4/23 update)

    So….. sometimes these guys kinda lie???

    Casas has a left rib fracture. He will be out "a while." (4/23 update)

    From the article, " Refsynder has 36 appearances at first base in his career for a total of 227 innings but hasn't played the position since 2020." Still seems like the best possible solution if O'Neill is back in the lineup. Even if he's Dalbec 2021/22 level bad at 1B, his offense- even as...

    Casas has a left rib fracture. He will be out "a while." (4/23 update)

    I'll hold you to this! But I still haven't heard anything other than SoSH speculation about either Kavadas and Refsnyder at 1B. Have I missed anything anywhere that was more official? If Devers is back I fear that Bobby D will be moved to 1B and I just can't imagine a world in which Reffy or...

    Amazing.... and damn you!!!!! Ear worm....

    Cleveland 4/23, Houck Yeah, It's Tanner Time

    Sort of like how Aerosmith is a “Boston band” though. But yes.

    Cleveland 4/23, Houck Yeah, It's Tanner Time

    No mystery achievement here- how have the Sox, despite mind-numbing injuries (and Giolito is often left out of this discussion!) still not fallen apart? Starting pitching! Mostly finding an excuse to post the excellent conclusion song of one of Cleveland’s best band first album-...

    March/April: Red Sox discussion, observations and trend tracking...AKA It's not all about the Benjamins

    Right now Jansen is the one that gives me the least confidence actually

    4/22 - Rodon vs. Sears

    Rodon seems to be pitching well this season so far. His WHIP seems crazy high to sustain his ERA and he's definitely not worth the contract but it's the Yankees so it really doesn't seem to affect them. I'm not picking on Judge really because he's one of my favorite players but I'm still...

    Casas has a left rib fracture. He will be out "a while." (4/23 update)

    Really no other comments on Refsnyder to 1B? IIRC he did take some reps there in ST and had some past experience there. I'd honestly rather take that route over signing some guy that's been fishing or golfing the past two months. Kavadas also preferable.

    Lineup Predictions

    Geez, I made the Yoshida to 1B comment as a bad joke regarding the Hickey idea of him learning 1B. Definitely not a good idea... but I'm more puzzled honestly why bat first OF types (thinking of JD Martinez) don't start working out at 1B on their own as a way to make themselves more marketable...

    Wilyer Abreu to be called up

    I was all about getting an extension to Verdugo in mid June of last season. I’m so glad I passed when I was offered the GM position. Seriously though- it’s a crazy thing… I don’t think Abreu was considered anything other than a potential 4th OF and while he could still obviously play terribly...
