    8 days is not enough time to finish any evaluation, but we may know more.

    The evaluation for most of them started several weeks ago.

    If Bloom makes a trade(s) he will probably going to trade/cut some players soon.

    Marwin's flexibility allows Cora to PH and use all the other bench players where he pleases without worrying about someone getting hurt, later in the game.

    Since he can play almost every position but catcher, being on the back of the bench is best.

    Yes, of course.

    I do think much more time is needed with Duran, and Dalbec needs a longer look he may not get with the Sox.

    Cordero and Chavis could benefit by playing everyday, but that ain't happening.

    Duran has played in two games and was subbed into another late. One of the games was against the Yankees best and his next appearance will be against him as well. Cordero, Chavis and Dalbec have been in many more games. I think Bloom is out there beating the bushes to find a quality first baseman (not necessarily to platoon with Dalbec) and a quality relief pitcher. Those talks may involve trading either Dalbec/Chavis and prospects that don't figure in the Sox long term plans. Bloom is circumspect about plans but I believe he will make trades if he can find ones that fit the Sox long term plans. The real question is whether he has the go ahead to spend over the CBT limit

    Cordero is a waste. His last week or so in triple a, he was cold as ice.

    That's not right.

    How much of that was covering for injuries and other struggling players? He took some PA from Renfroe early on, for example, but that was back when Renfroe was not exactly a guy we wanted to see hit every day.

    He is doing what a bench player is supposed to do. He’s far from a problem…

    Yes, you fix the starting lineup. You don't fret over the bench (at least as much as we do).

I think we can pick up a first baseman to serve for a year or two while Casas progresses. There are a number of options available who could give us more. I no longer see Dalbec in our long term plans.
    I completely understand where you're coming from. My bet is that Bloom is looking for an upgrade at 1B, whether it be a full time 1B or a left handed platoon. At the same time, I would be fine if Dalbec remained our main 1B for the remainder of the season.

    Same here. He showed reasons for hope again last night with 2 hits, including a huge one in the 9th.

    I'm fine with Marwin on the roster. I just don't think he should be the #2 at any position. His value is being a highly flexible last man off the bench.

    He was clearly Cora's favorite, and I can't blame him for liking him, especially being with him during his great Houston season.

    He was already seeing less playing time than when the season started, then Kike and Arroyo went on the IL at the same time.

    Ideally, we should have other bench players as the #2 or #3 at all positions. Marwin should be the #3 or #4 at several positions. That's his value.

    Yes, Dalbec would have more value to the Sox than Chavis, but with Casas a year away Bloom needs to consider the long term.
