Wow! It's like we're getting Chris Sale as a trade deadline acquisition!

Now, normally, 5th place teams that are a dozen games out of a wild card spot by august are sellers and not buyers, but I'm sure it'll still be all quite exciting.

My son is going to be trying out for an all-star team when this starts.

Thank God I don't need to watch.

Game 64
A Sox-Yankee game will often enthrall.
We stress-snack and raise our cholesterol.
There’s lots of nail-biting and alcohol.
Some lead to sadness or punching a wall.
Some lead to joy and perhaps a pub crawl.
Some feature comebacks, some feature a brawl
involving a pinstriped neanderthal.
It’s tough in the Toilet. (Bring the Lysol.)
Prepare for behavior that will appall.
A goonish combo of smugness and gall
from fans – and from players. (It’s protocol.)
A highlight tonight, the Sox reinstall
our hard-hitting hero, Adam Duvall
back into center. (Hope he doesn’t sprawl
attempting to catch another flyball.)
Our players have not shown much life at all.
Team meetings have failed. (They need a town hall.)
Although, we as fans, have the wherewithal
to know that the writing is on the wall,
we will pretend that we can’t read the scrawl,
and root for the Red Sox for the long haul.
Making the playoffs? That order seems tall,
but folks scale Mount Everest. (That’s in Nepal.)
Let’s fight and climb back and stop this freefall.
It starts with one step, no matter how small.

No lefty middle infielders left. We can't use that groovy all lefty lineup that doesn't result in any runs being scored.

What are the chances Verdugo is with the team past the trade deadline?

It feels like he may be on the outs with Cora, but he’s still producing at a solid clip. Not sure we have anyone to replace him. If we get a shortstop back, Kike can take an outfield spot, but that’d hurt the offense. .

I don't think they need a shortstop, at least not a long-term one.
