The league adjusted to Abreu, and he adjusted right back. Even with the DL stint, he's still close to the top in a lot of the offensive categories.

Now please put him back in the third spot.

There is no better deal in ballpark concessions at any of the many stadiums I have visited than $9.75 for a XL (approx. 22 oz.) Anti-Hero or Lagunitas IPA draft down the right field line at the Cell. I really wish they had them on draft at more than one stand. It is a total steal for the customer.

We have a good core to build around, thats the truth. It really has not been a bad year, some people just have really unrealistic expectations.

You have an overall bad OF, especially with Avi going down, but next year you have 2/3 of a GOOD OF in Eaton and Avi....

You have 2 guys in the IF who have peaked their trade value but are not part of the long term plan, and thats great for us (Ramirez and Gordon)

You have one of the best sluggers in baseball at 1b
You have one of the top 3 SP in baseball
You have a top 5 SP prospect the minute he signs who is almost MLB ready

You have some young, talented arms in the pen who are going through growing pains

You also have money to spend next year.

Agree. I am no where nearly as depressed about the franchise as I was last year at this time.

We have some good younger pieces to build around now, unlike last year.

Eaton, Garcia, Abreu, Gillaspie, Rodon, are all good additions over the last two seasons.
Sale, Quintana, Danks, and even Noesi have pitched well at times...giving us a possibility of a decent rotation next year.

The bullpen is full of young power arms, who cannot locate now, but that can change.

As you say, a few more july trades, another draft or two, and this team can contend next season or year after.

The Sox may have the AL leader in each of the categories of BA, HR and RBI on the roster and locked in for the long term.

Hats off to this club for leading MLB in 9th inning runs scored. They make it worth tuning in until the very end.

Almost forgot to compliment Alexei Ramirez on his bounce back season and being the best shortstop in the American League.

-Coop apparently did fix Hector Noesi.

-Alexei is having a great season

-Eaton is having a great season

-Abreu is a monster

-Sale, Jake P, and Putnam are all having very good years

-The one game I was able to make this year, the hot dogs were excellent

It's funny. The title has the words "good vibes threads" and yet still one or two posters just can't leave it alone and bring sarcasm. Misery is optional.

You want to be doom and gloom in literally EVERY OTHER ****ING THREAD in the Clubhouse, that's great. Not this one.

Some people just simply can't help themselves, huh?

Whether it's leading off an inning, or driving in runs, i think that there is nothing so beautiful in baseball as a ringing double in the gap or down the line .. i hope that Conner never changes .. winning teams need players that can consistently hit for high average .. i just wonder if he is one of those players that can do it..
