Robots would have rung him by now. I for one, would take that tradeoff forever.

I really hope these cheaters get swept if we don't come back. Such a collection of assholes. Fuck them all.

Sox have hit more IF popups this postseason than Boggs hit in his Sox career.

Jonathan Schoop wouldve helped this team a bunch, but guess the Tigers just weren’t interested. Asdrubel Cabrera too.
….and Iggy.
there’s just no way we could have outbid Milwaukee for Eduardo Escobar. Switch hitter, not bad K rate, middle infielder, .800 ops post trade. Some complex kid and a 26yo AAAA player

Milwaukee is sending back prospects Cooper Hummel and Alberto Ciprian to complete the deal.
Hummel, 26, was an 18th-round pick for Milwaukee in 2016 and is currently at Triple-A, where he's slashing .254/.435/.508. He has played first base, catcher and the outfield for Nashville.
Ciprian, 18, signed as an undrafted free agent with Milwaukee in 2019 and was playing in the Dominican Summer League, averaging .378 while adding eight RBIs in his first 12 professional games.

For all the talk about Cora and the bullpen and starting pitching...this team was only successful to the extent it was this season because of the offense, they are where they are right now because of that offense too.
