So…I would not sit Vaughn and Harrison for Sheets and Leury regardless of pitcher.
But especially Vaughn.

Apparently Harrison‘s hammy is a lil sore 🙁

And that’s how you reverse jinx it.

I like the 1 K through 13 PA’s against Bieber. 5 Runs is nice too 😉

Vibes very good. Minnie Minoso day couldn’t be going much better. Hopefully this isn’t a jinx

The stupid thing about this team is: like basically all of their issues are instantly resolved if Leury and Pollock hit like they have the past two years.

That plus also I think they need Moncada and Gio and Lynn and Jimenez and Robert all to transcend their current 2022 performances

Well, Eloy’s doing his part

This team has more issues than Leury and Pollock not playing up to their potentials. Leury needs to play less, not better. He is not an MLB starter in any universe (except today!).

Any Tony will be an albatross until he is removed.

Leury shouldn’t be a regular starter, but if he’s hitting for approximately league-average production like ‘20 and ‘21 in appropriate usage, he’s a really useful utility player. Pollock hitting a platoon-neutral 130 wRC+ does actually solve 80% of the outfield issue. As Szymborski said, they have two big holes: at 2B/Util and corner OF. The solutions are in house if they can just not be goddamn bums

Their solutions are not in house if they want to beat real teams in October.

Turns out, I like home runs.

I’ve enjoyed 84 of the home runs in Sox games this year. The other 101 – not so much.
