    Not exactly what I would call a building block.

    Like I told you pink hats Duran provides a much needed spark as a lead-off hitter!
    When Hernandez returns Duran should move to everyday RF and jettison whichever Beer leaguer is hitting below .200 and there’s plenty

    If Bloom fails with the above then you know what type of GM you got

    The Dalbec experiment needs to end and end quick. Despite the dreadful offense the Defense is now becoming a liability
    DFA this stooge

    When they acquire JBell let me know

    I wondered how long it would take for the stork troll to return. He usually only shows up after prolonged losing stretches, but I guess he was getting antsy.

    Now, he acting like he's vindicated after Duran's 50 PAs, this year.

    Next, he wants to DFA a guy hitting .821 since May 29th.

    Who's your team, STORK?

    But we all know you're too much of a pussy to say.

    I'm all about player controlled years.....you can't project talent, not all will remain a Red Sox but at least you know who maybe available. I'm counting 'team' option years here.

    Controlled through 2028 (six more years after 2022 season)
    Trevor Story (he's a terrific fielder and I can see him moved to outfield IF that's what the Sox needs to accommodate someone like Nick Yorke, unless of course he become our next shortstop)
    Garret Whitlock
    Jarren Duran
    Josh Winckowski (looks like a major league pitcher)

    Controlled through 2027
    Tanner Houck

    Controlled through 2026
    Bobby Dalbec
    John Schreiber (relievers are unpredictable but he sure looks he belongs this year)

    Controlled through 2025
    Chris Sale
    Josh Taylor

    Controlled through 2024
    Nick Pivetta (Let's wait until season is over but should explore extension if healthy)
    James Paxton (has club options for 2023-24)

    I'm missing some, like Darwinzon Hernandez (who may never come back) or players I don't consider worthy.

    This also shows Bloom has financial flexibility going forward. Very few long term deals on the books. I only see Story, Whitlock and Sale in that category. And Whitlock comes cheap.

    I anxiously wait someone like Bello joining this group.

    Will Xander join the group? Devers better join this group.

    He seems to have forgotten all about his criticisms of Winckowski…

    Graterol gave a game-winning 2 run bomb to the Braves last night. ERA at 4.13.

    An older Dodger friend, Jansen, closed it out for the Braves.

    And Kimbrel has been no Jansen. Swapping those two (which is in effect what happened) was kind of a strange move by the Dodgers.

    Just say “no” to us trading for or signing Jansen.

    Maybe they figured cosers are usually available at the deadline, and if you have to go weak somewhere, the pen is it.

    Sound familiar?
