Wow.

The lineup and roster that won the WS last year has a ton of holes in it, doesn't it!

And the team is 3-1 since they brought Leon back up.


I'm with you on Nunez, but I think you picked the wrong time to crap on the team. And likely the wrong thread, too.

More appropriate here: http://sonsofsamhorn.net/index.php?threads/where-the-red-sox-have-gone-wrong.26952/

Welcome to the forum!
We all know this team will never find that kind of 2018 momentum again with this lineup, a weak pen and no real closer. I realize we are strapped for money until next year or two but this lineup will never do that again. Just my opinion I hope I’m wrong.

I personally think any combination of Vasquez, Swihart “while Blake was hitting in ST” along with Chavis and a minor league pitcher could have gotten Realmuto. To my knowledge no effort was even made
Uh huh.

They were supposed to offer Swihart "while he was hitting in ST" for a guy who was traded a week before pitchers and catchers reported? Sure...

Fansc Orner.... listen... I'm not a very good poster here. I mostly just read and learn and occasionally opine some garbage that gets either ignored or shredded... but the other posters here are being nice to you so far. You've got to have better posts than this reactionary stuff. If you're not a stat guy (I sure as hell am not), try to support your "feelings" about the team with something a little substantial at least.

Vasquez should have been the one offered.
Because a team stripping their roster of high salary players is going to trade their best commodity for an inferior model who is the same age and locked into making similar money to what their guy is projected to make in arbitration.

Even shitty teams like Miami aren't in the business of trading their best players for other team's cast-offs.

How much more proof do You need? What are the career BA’s of Leon, Vasquez, Nunez, JBJ, Pierce, Moreland and Holt? Why is it our best options for years now is to call up guys like Lin, Brentz etc? This team has a very weak supporting cast. Last season won’t be repeated with these guys or this BP.

I will be the first to admit If wrong but that would be a miracle.

Dombrowski and past GM’s have strapped us financially and raped the farm.
I hate interceding on the main board, but when you quote yourself to make this many half-assed posts in a row with zero track record, you get some time off. See you in a few days, or not.

Thank you for getting this back on track. I hope Eovaldi’s surgery goes well and he’s ready to come back for a playoff push post-ASB.

Yeah, really optimistic. Can't imagine he'd be able to do much after four to six weeks than pick up a ball and soft toss. Isn't DRS saying 2-3 months upthread? That sounds more likely. And if there's one loose body, could they find more once they get in there? Or cartilage damage in the joint?

Last year he took 2 months, and was still rehabbing from TJS. 6-8 weeks seems realistically optimistic, if there are no unpleasant surprises tomorrow.

Looks like it was an expected six weeks for Daniel Duffy back in 2017, though he was only returning to "normal offseason training" and not to regular major league pitching, with all the elbow stress that entails:
Royals pitcher Danny Duffy is expected to return to normal offseason training in six weeks after undergoing surgery Tuesday to remove loose bodies from the back of his left elbow.

That jibes with McAdam's take at BSJ:

He underwent a similar procedure last year while with the Tampa Bay Rays and missed exactly two months. But that surgery came as Eovaldi was still recovering from Tommy John surgery, which further slowed down his recovery.

Thank you for this.

A bit early in the season to give a SP his "vacation" but hopefully this gets us a tanned, rested, and ready Captain EO for the stretch run and postseason. But I sure hope this isn't an annual thing for him, with 3 more seasons to go!
