Thread: Welcome to Boston, Che-Hsuan Lin!

  1. #1

    Welcome to Boston, Che-Hsuan Lin!

    Callup confirmed, welcome to the big club. Here's hoping you prove a lot of people wrong.
    If history tells us anything, the path to redeption for any bad baseball team is marked with a deep rotation of durable starters, a world class defense in both infield and outfield, a lineup that can generate runs in more than one way, a bullpen that won't steal defeat from the jaws of victory, and a top end catcher to hold the whole package together. These are the conditions by which victory is achieved, anything that does not accomplish these objectives is a waste of resources.

    Don't be expecting Freddie Lynn.

    not offensively, anyway.

    Could we overrate his defense more please?

    Waste of a roster spot imo.

    Our current CF is Ross, BA .182,....how difficult could it be to beat that?

    Not to mention that Ross plays centerfield like a really half decent right fielder.

    So does anybody think Lin will see any time in the line up or will he more likely be a late inning defensive replacement? I suspect that unless another outfielder goes down, he will be a late innings defensive replacement.

    You never know with BV. But I think he would be a late inning defensive replacement.

    Depends on which he can stand less, Ross's or Sweeney's defense in center or Lin's bat

    Re: Welcome to Boston, Che-Hsuan Lin!

    Good point...Sweeney is so gangly and uncoordinated. I keep expecting him to actually trip over himself out there and have the ball doink right off his noggin as he tries to right the good ship Sweeney. Ross will be tough to watch in center but Lin's cannon arm may serve us best in our right field.

    I would bet that V will be more concerned about the offense with both Crawford and Ells out at the same time. so for now I would expect Lin mainly to go into right in the late innings for Sweeney.
