    That's what it means.
    And that's all that matters to those people. It's tiring.

    They've been developing guys like Bummer, Heuer, Foster, Crochet, and Kopech (not to mention Fry, Cordero, and Ruiz). There very well could be other guys to step up this year like Lambert, Johnson, Kincanon, Kubat, or Freeman; we just haven't been able to witness most of their development in over a year.

    The ability of the Sox to develop bullpen arms is really not a point of criticism.

    Exactly. The only people “proven correct” would be those who would have predicted before the 2016 draft that Burdi would need TJ surgery and have an abnormally slow recovery/rehab.
    Plus a once-in-century pandemic that set back pretty much all prospects about a year due to the 2020 minor league season being wiped out entirely.

    I'm not saying that he's a sure thing to be a success by any means, but we shouldn't write off prospects after a handful of major league games either

    "Being proven correct" after a grand total of 10.1 IP in the majors. Got it.

    Especially in a game that is already out of hand where his job is to just get the ball over the plate. He did his job by covering 3 innings, and the bullpen escaped the game with the only guys getting taxed being Burdi and Ruiz.

    Well Burdi got some work in today and the results were predictible.

    "If"? Do you know something we don't?

    I got a trapezius strain on the day that Harold Baines was elected to the Hall of Fame. It was very alarming when it happened because I had some neck pain and was worried that it was meningitis, but it's an extremely common and routine injury for normal people. Granted I don't do anything near as physically demanding as being an MLB pitcher so it might be a tougher recovery for Lynn, but this is not a weird exotic injury.

    Yeah I agree. There's no reason Stiever wouldn't be eligible to return as soon as Wednesday, right? I don't think there's a waiting period after being called up to be the 27th man.
    There is not.

    Good news. I wonder if they're going to go with a bullpen day on Wednesday, or if they'll give Lambert, Stiever, or Lopez a start.
