Sox currently tied for 4th most wins in the AL while still being in 4th place in the division, pretty silly.
The things that needed to happen for this team to be competitive (Yoshida, Verdugo playing well, etc.) are happening. If Sale and Bello can go on a run…This was a great win.
I don't know if it's a great team, but it's a good team with the potential to be great. And it's a damn fun team to watch.
Not much you can do with a .200 BABIP. K rate is fine, hard hit%, launch angle and barrels/PA all in line with the best years of his career. He has just traded line drives for fly balls and I suspect the fact that he's just getting pitched way high up in the zone (and has consistently chased those pitches) has a lot to do with it.How much of this is guys like Turner and Refsnyder hitting around him instead of Bogaerts and J.D?
Then Sosh can have endless conversations about who gets sent down to AAA. I nominate Casas. I don't think Tapia can be sent down, so he'll be DFA'd?Just wait until Story, Duvall, Yu and Paxton get back. Nice to know there are reinforcements down the line.
