Zero innings from anyone acquired pre-deadline for the Sox and (looking like) two losses, meanwhile Tampa, Toronto, NYY, and Chicago haven’t lost and are getting meaningful contributions from deadline acquisitions. Sadly I feel like that’s going to set the tone for the rest of the season
I can't see into the future as well as you, so tell me how the White Sox come back in their game.

I think you’re probably right but that doesn’t mean plawecki shouldn’t play more then once every 5 days. Vaz has looked awful for a long stretch. He needs more off days
In 2018, Cora ran Leon out there every day from like June to September when Vazquez went down. He went from a respectable batting average to something close to zero.

I think Cora places more value on defensive stability with catchers than what they bring offensively.

Unless you wanted to trade the likes of Duran/Casas/Downs/Bello for rentals then stfu up about the trade deadline. If the team is as shitty as you all seem to think it is then it wouldn’t have mattered and the cupboard would be even more bare for nothing.

I notice tomorrow is a night game in this dungeon. I wonder if they will roll out fire breathing digital dragons.

fine but Vaz sucks on d also. The next good throw he makes will be the first in years

Do not post about Yankee good fortune in Red Sox game threads. It will get you banned.

There are other threads for Yankee trades and Yankee game threads. If you want to comment on those, then find the appropriate thread.
What about posting about how the Sox got played because great players are playing great 24 hours after they were traded to our rivals?

It's not a shitty team, obviously. It's a team with some big holes that were not fixed at the deadline. Now we get to sweat bullets down the stretch hoping this team can play as well as it did prior to the AS game.

I VERY VERY VERY VERY much wanted to trade Duran at the deadline now that you mention it.

This team is building towards 2023, anything else is a bonus.

Miami (oh, Miami!)
This is the moment when Bloom's and Cora's genius come together, like in that commercial where the chocolate flies through the air and lands in the peanut-butter.

Glad Chaim got cute and liked this guy’s arm instead of adding something of substance. He fits right in

Aggressive manager would have PH for Vaz, not thrown new guy into the fire in a winnable game. Playoffs start now Alex.

If that’s going to be your nitpick response then God bless. At least we had a fun first 100 games right?
It's not a nitpick. You're making a sweeping generalization and drawing draconian conclusions after two games. And with bullshit information. If you're going to be apocalyptic, at least try to be accurate with your drama.
