These pricks are straight up mowing Hart down.

It's amazing that this team is so much worse than the Orioles. Way behind Tampa, NYY, yeah we expected that. But over $200 million to be way worse than Baltimore???

They play baseball at the Trop, but they stop the outdoor game because of a drone.

Hart *might* have some use one time through an order. But that stuff definitely won't play multiple times through any order

How long has it been since the Sox have been the worst in the league? Even on the last place years recently, they weren’t the worst in baseball.

Our pitching sucks
Our manager sucks
Our front office sucks
The first statement is categorically true.

The second statement I agree with, insofar as I haven't liked Roenicke since his Brewers days, but this disaster isn't his fault. With that said, I'd love knowing that instead of removing the interim tag, they simply made the font color white so it's invisible for this weird season. Maybe they have. I just would hate to see him back next year in this capacity. I think he's just bad overall. That's just my opinion.

I think the third statement is partially true in regards to the old regime. The Sox have failed at developing pitching, made questionable extensions and free agent signings. This goes back a ways. There was very little that Bloom and Co. could do this past off-season to make this club appreciably better. Especially with the way injuries and Covid have derailed the rotation and bullpen, let alone the luxury tax issue.

It is absolutely frustrating to watch, but I constantly remind myself it is truly a blessing to watch even abhorrent baseball, given where we are at.

Who wants .500 ballclubs. Either have a team competing for a championship or go into full rebuild mode. I'm finding a lot of positives with this season, esp if they make it far enough to reset the luxury tax.

"Tampa Bay came in hitting .210; they're gonna leave hitting .250" - Eck. Absolutey laughed out loud on that one.

Philips Valdez looks like a keeper: good movement, good control, decent fastball velocity.
