    Triston Casas promoted, Bobby Dalbec demoted

    Teach him to use a catchers glove and he could play every single position in the infield. Talk about a super utility player. I absolutely love the idea.

    Wacha or Eovaldi?

    I'm in agreement here regarding Wacha. I would think Bloom is more likely to go hunting for the next Wacha, and if I had time, it would be interesting to have a thread predicting which overlooked or underperforming pitcher from 2021 and 2022 is a decent bet to have a bounce back year. There's...

    And on this farm he had some prospects B-L-O-O-M

    Thanks guys!! Gosh, imagine what could have been accomplished if only these teams had a Jonny Gomes to rally the troops into battle.

    And on this farm he had some prospects B-L-O-O-M

    Didn't the A's famously win the world series with 26 guys, 26 cabs? These are adult professionals. I'm glad they love their jobs and love their team mates. Chemistry definitely makes a team fun when the team is winning, but these guys are competing for their next contracts. If a player's...

    What does 2023 look like?

    The way folks whine about Bogies in the game threads and elsewhere I was kind of shocked to see the stats show him as a league average or better SS by DRS (1, 12th in the league just before Lindor), UZR/150 (4.3, 4th in the league), defensive runs saved above average (8.4, 8th). This is despite...

    What does 2023 look like?

    We have a guy named Chris Koss in the system? That's fantastic. While I mentioned Bobby largely in jest, I was intrigued hearing about his performance at SS in a fill-in roll. If he could be the league average bat that he's projected to be (99 WRC+ ZIPS, 104 STEAMER, same for the other systems...

    What does 2023 look like?

    You meant four other possible SSs: Story, arroyo, Hernandez, and Bobby Effing Dalbec. Don't sleep on Dalbec. You just forgot to mention Dalbec, right? Realistically we're probably looking at Hernandez at CF, so without a big-time addition we're looking at a rotation of Bobby and Christian at SS...

    9/7 - BABIP will show the way

    Fleming was just opining that the Sox have let hope of a wildcard slip away, and Casting said, and I paraphrase: This is the time of the year you look for good games, and individual performances. Such truth. I'll enjoy these games even in losses, as long as they are good losses, and as long as...

    Member or lurker?

    Hi! Wasn't sure where to put this, but was I punted back to Lurker status? I seem to have lost access to the "Other Crap" and such Member type things. Thanks!

    Minor league thread 2022

    Holy crow, Valdez must be having a lousy couple weeks. I think I checked his bref a couple weeks ago and he was OPSing over 1.0 in woostah. And now he's down to like 0.661. yeah yeah yeah sss but I was banging the DFA JD drum and now I suppose we'll have to wait before bringing the kid up. Not...

    8/25 Where's Bobby?

    Dalbec woulda had it.

    8/25 Where's Bobby?

    Bobby F'ing Dalbec. Just another all-glove no-hit short stop. He's a throwback, really. Without kidding, I know he's been brutal, but there's something I love about this kid. I really hope he finds his stroke again and maybe this newly discovered skill in the middle infield gives him more of a...

    The 1995 Red Sox Appreciation Thread

    Somewhere I've got a "poster" of Tim Wakefield that was taken from the Boston Globe (which ran a series of full page photos of certain Red Sox that year) "laminated" with packaging tape that my buddy Steve gave me for my bday in 1995. I guess I was 13. I was instantly smitten with Wake. And...

    Six walks in two days for Valdez. Clearly too advanced a batting eye for the level. Time to promote the kid to see how he does against more advanced pitching.

    And on this farm he had some prospects B-L-O-O-M

    Binelas is popping up an absolutely absurd amount in AA, over 20%, per FG. Is that indicative of anything specific? Line drives at an ok rate (14%). FB/GB about even (around 45%/40%). Is there any other way to evaluate luck using minor league data besides BABIP? Maybe the new batting approach is...

    Not sure this would add much to your analysis, but since it sounds like you have the data onhand, could you calc the median and mean bonus for pitchers/position players for the two periods?
