    I didn’t say to bench him, but you did agree 3-21 is not hitting.

    Interestingly, his .217 OBP is less than Renfroe's...

    3 for 21 is not good, but I never look at just BA. OPS is more important, and that is pretty bad, too (.551), but if you count the Yankee game, his OPS is over .700.

    I'm thinking he might bust out Friday. (Maybe it's just hoping.)

    For whatever reason , a lot of folks just take a liking to some players and a dislike to others. And that influences their opinions. Objectivity can be hard to come by. It's just human nature , but it is something to try and overcome.
    Old school is good school.

    I'm thinking a few Sox are bound to... vs. Garcia with a knee problem, Odorizzi with mild cheese, even Javier, who threw a lot of high leverage pitches Tuesday.

    If we can't score Firday, then we don't deserve to go on. I'm not usually one to make statements like this- based on one game, but it's make or break time. There will be no Framber on Friday.

    Time to wake the echoes.

    One final transaction for the year:

    @PeteAbe
    #RedSox reinstated RHP Phillips Valdez from the COVID-19 Related Injured List. OF Franchy Cordero was DFA’d.

    That's actually big news, to me anyway. I didn't think Cordero would be even on the bubble list, this winter.

    Maybe Valdez will be added to the WS roster. Yes, you heard me! WS ROSTER!

    It should, of course, be noted that the DFA of Cordero hardly closes the book on the Red Sox’ end of the Benintendi deal. The Sox still have four other players to show for that deal, though none has reached the Majors yet. Boston acquired right-hander Josh Winckowski and outfielder Freddy Valdez from the Mets (who received Khalil Lee from Kansas City), in addition to picking up righties Luis De La Rosa and Grant Gambrell from the Royals. Cordero was certainly the most recognizable name going back to Boston in the swap, but he wasn’t necessarily the key player in the deal.

    As for Benintendi, he had a fine debut campaign in K.C., slashing .276/.324/.442 (106 wRC+) with 17 home runs, 27 doubles, two triples and eight steals (albeit with a woeful success rate, given his 17 attempts). He’s controllable for one more year via arbitration, with a projected 2022 salary of $9.3MM (courtesy of MLBTR contributor Matt Swartz).

    Beni would not have been an improvement over Verdugo or Renfroe.

    He’s a FA after next season.

    The money saved got us Renfroe.

    We still have 4 decent prospects in that deal.

    Maybe your worst post ever.
    Championships since purchase by John Henry group: Red Sox 4 Yankees 1

    The Red Sox are 8-1 in their last 9 postseason games against the Yankees.

    I've been wrong about a lot of things, and being as opinionated as I am, I've put a lot out there.

    One thing I got right from even before day one was putting Kike in CF. The guy has been better than any Sox player I've ever seen in CF.

    Here's a great article that shows why...
