    Or Bichette. There is no way they are keeping both so my bet is that they unload one of them

    I could see the Dodgers going seriously after Bichette.

    It looks like the injury bug which eliminated Story and Grissom, had a benefit. The Sox learned that Hamilton, Gonzalez and Valdez could all play to a functional; level, given enough reps. Along with Refsnyder, and McGuire , the bench actually shows good strength. Combine with the 3 or 4 young guys on WooSox/Portland for 2025/26, this group could be getting serious.

    As often mentioned, maybe a couple pitchers could be added to complement the position players.

    This optimistic assessment does not , however, cover 1B where Casas is missed. Bobby D and Dom Smith aren't the answer there

    Ffs. Would have been nice to avoid Jansen with this lead

    3 games over .500.
    When Abreu and Casas return, this line-up should be even better.

    They definitely will have about 4 guys who could DH.

    Just informed that Betts will be out 6-8 weeks because surgery won't be required. So I doubt the Dodgers will be trading for a SS.

    When Bobby Dee gets us an rbi, you know things are going well.
    When you say it's gonna happen now
    When exactly do you mean?

    Agreed, although Smith has come on, recently... on O.

    .783 since May 22 (75 PAs)

    .879 since May 31st (47 PAs)

    Looks like Hamilton hurt himself swinging at a pitch. How would I describe this season's SOX team? Fast and Fragile.

    I'd try to dump Yoshida and go with Ref/O'Neill at DH and back-up OF.

    I'd DFA or demote Dalbec, once Casas returns, but Smith and Casas both bat RH'd. (One could say which way Dalbec bats is of no significance, since he does not "bat." He K's.

    DHam got hurt, and I hope it's not serious, but Grissom may not be needed, at all, if our middle IF keeps going like this.

    Romy 2-3 w BB (now up to .717)
    Valdez 0-1 w BB
    DHam still at .776

    This is getting absurd, the amount of players injured. DHam is like the back-up to back-up's back-up.

    I don't know how the SOX can 'dump' Masa w/o eating a large chunk of his remaining contract. It was a gamble signing him and a lot of gambles just don't work out. No one knows that better than a SOX fan.

    I had completely forgotten about Grissom. I'm sure the Braves are still laughing about that 'deal.'

    Even paying 80-90% of what's owed might not get a taker, but I'd try.
