    All that matters to me and I think fans in general is who is the guy pulling the trigger on player moves. They really have a ball coming up with different names for that guy.

    Could just call them all HOBO's - Head of Baseball Ops.

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

    Sadly the Sox best defensive OF alignment right now might be Pham in LF, Cordero in CF and Verdugo in RF.

    Not saying it’s a good alignment. But it’s probably their best.

    Duran can maybe platoon with Pham in LF until such time as a defensive replacement is needed…

    We effectively have 3 left fielders right now. There's no good alignment, there's literally just the less shittiest alignment

    Duran should be down in the rookie league, and ONLY move up when he can track, and catch a fly ball properly, and not look like he is trying to catch butterflies.

    Bloom finally added the RH'd bat, but forgot we need CF/RF not LF.

    Bloom should have added that RH’d bat, before the season even began.

    Bloom did add Refsnyder in the off-season and he’s been up with the parent club since early June…

    Story isn’t a RH bat?

    Also - see Refsnyder above…

    It seems obvious the late addition of Story to the roster made Bloom feel like the line-up had its big RH'd bat and could survive with 3 lefty OF'ers filling the 2 corner OF slots.

    Let's not forget the plan was to have RH'd hitting Kike in CF, FT.

    An OF RHB, which would have prevented the Arroyo clown show.

    Does Story play the OF? The needed another RH’d out there. Kike sucked from day 1 until he got hurt, and the only reason the Ref Man came up was, because of all the injuries. Remember that Arroyo was first option out there for some time

    You know what thought did? Thought Kike was going to be like last year, and go through a few hot streaks, but he SUCKED from day 1.
