Default *OFFICIAL* 8.25.19 Postgamer...Sox win in old fashioned style.

2-0 win for the Sox as they take the series 3-1. Old time baseball with 5 hits for the Sox and the Rangers held to 1 hit.
Great outing for Lopez, no hitter for 5 innings with 6Ks. Came down with heat exhaustion but the bullpen did their job. I came off the golf course with it about 12 weeks ago and I know exactly what Lopez was going through, weakness, nausea, stomach ache, dizzyness and headache. Wasn't fun but learned my lesson, I'm now drinking a lot of Gatorade while on the links.
Kudos to Jose as he drove in both runs and hit the century mark in RBI.
Sox are doing really good in this tough stretch, 14-11 so far in August, wouldn't it be great to sweep the Twinkies.
This team with a few FA additions should be a contender for at least a WC spot in 2020.

Don't forget we're also getting Kopech back and Robert should be up to the majors by mid-April at the latest. I'm definitely looking forward to next season.

I was worried when I saw on Gameday that Lopez got pulled after 80 pitches and no hits given up. Not that dehydration/heat exhaustion can't be a serious issue if not addressed right away, but I'm glad it wasn't some arm issue.

Nice game . i wasn't really expecting the Sox to seriously contend next year, but now i'm thinking that with the right moves and certain key pieces, both current and future ones, performing up to expectations, or even possibly above that, we could have a playoff run next year . let's hope so..

If those free agent acquisitions and trades bring in marquee talent, maybe thereís a chance to compete. The team needs, at a minimum, a top-notch starter and a RF who can hit the ball out of the ballpark (preferably a LH bat). Thatís just to get into the playoff conversation. They also need several of the following:
  • Giolito, Lopez, McCann, Colomť, and Abreu to show minimal-to-no regression
  • Robert to set the world on fire immediately upon arrival
  • Madrigal to develop much more power than he has shown to date
  • Eloy to develop into a much better LF and contact hitter than he has shown to date
  • Cease to be much more effective early in games than he has been to date
  • Kopech to step in and have immediate success following TJS
  • Collins to be solid enough defensively to catch about 30 games and play about 30 games at 1B along with being the primary DH
  • Enough young arms to thrive and cobble together a bullpen behind Colomť

Itís not that I feel skeptical of those goals being realized. Itís just that I think some of them are going to take a full season of development time in 2020 to be realized. Madrigal, Kopech, Cease, Collins, and Eloy are still babies. I say just give it one last rebuild year to work everything out. I think 2021 is a more realistic goal.

For 2020:
  • Go get Bumgarner for the top of the rotation in 2021 and beyond
  • Give up some of the 40-man/Rule 5-eligible depth for a stopgap RF like Shin-Soo Choo or Joc Pederson from a team looking to dump payroll
  • If there is any legitimate playoff push in 2020, let it be fueled by young talent developing ahead of schedule.

Someone please tell me why we shouldn't bring back Abreu. Only Frank and Paulie have more 100-RBI seasons in team history.

Wasn't JR quoted a couple of weeks ago that Jose isn't going anywhere.

I like Abreu and I would like to see him back.

BUT he's really an average hitter at his position these days.

Among the 22 qualified 1B in the majors, here are his ranks:

WAR: 16
OBP: 21
SLG: 11

If your thing is counting stats and BA:

BA: 6
HR: 10
R: 14
RBI: 4

The "traditional" stats look better, but under the hood, this is a league-average 1B/DH-only player with no defense value.

That said, again, I stress that I like Jose and hope he's back.

Abreu coming back is fine. Abreu hitting #3 is not fine.
