      Keuchel, Banks, & Pollock are a waste of space, along with several other players . most everyone knew what we needed during the off season, but for whatever reason, these moves were not made.

          The good news is that we are done with the Yankees and BoSox, we were 7-6 against those guys, not bad and at the beginning of the year we all would have been happy with that record against them. Now we have to beat up the Cubs in the next 2 and go on from there with some good consistant winning baseball. I'm trying to stay upbeat as our guys have to eventually start heating up with the bats, maybe when Eloy returns next week along with a healthy Robert, it could make a difference.

            This is a good take. 7-6 is a .538 winning percentage and extrapolates to 87 wins.

            The schedule doesn’t get much easier immediately after the Cubs, given that we play the Jays, Rays, and Dodgers.

            But looking a bit further over the horizon, as long as we stay within striking distance of the division lead, we can make up ground by winning division games, plus the games against the Rangers, Athletics, Orioles, Rockies, and Diamondbacks. After the All Star Break, other than the Astros and Padres it’s all division games and also-rans.

                  When Lynn comes off the IL in a couple weeks, Keuchel is likely gone, maybe with a phantom IL stint of his own. Cueto has earned a spot in the rotation, and Velasquez can be the sixth starter/long reliever. We’ll need a sixth starter for the double header at Cleveland on July 12. If another starter goes down, I feel more confident in Davis Martin than Keuchel.

                  Velasquez and Lopez give the Sox two good options for multi-inning relief. And when Kelly returns and the 13 pitcher limit kicks in, Sousa and Banks return to Charlotte, which means Ruiz can go back to his mop up role, which in turn makes this the bullpen:

                  Hendriks
                  Graveman
                  Kelly
                  Bummer
                  Foster
                  Ruiz
                  Lopez
                  Velasqez

                    Lambert maybe back up to speed by then also.

                      That would be nice if it happens, and he might get called up if an emergency starter is needed and Martin just pitched, but overall I think Martin has passed up Lambert.

                        We look good on paper, the trades and moves seem to make sense (excluding addressing 2nd base)- and yet we're now basically a .500 team over the past 100+ (62-59 including playoffs) games (since mid 2021) while we are in the heart of the "rebuild window". How we play in June/July when we have Lynn and Eloy (and Robert) back will be the real test whether this will be a successful or failed rebuild. Right now most of the "veterans" acquired to complement the young talent are showing their age (Keuchel, Harrison, Grandal) and the almost complete lack of focusing on defense in this roster construction are the two most glaring aspects to me. Despite what looks like a deep, young rotation and a very expensive bullpen- we're 13th in the American League in team ERA. We're also 11th in team OPS and 13th in team fielding percentage.

                          This squad is likely to get younger next year, with Keuchel, Abreu, and Harrison coming out of contract, perhaps to be succeeded by Davis Martin, Vaughn, and Yolbert Sanchez. Pollock could be replaced by Colas as well.

                          After that miserable losing streak against the Guardians and Twins, the defense has been better of late.

                            After 44 games last year the Sox were 26-18. Only 4 games off but this year feels a lot different and for the wrong reasons.

                              So much bad money on this team right. Keuchel, Grandal, pollock Garcia Harrison…. This is what we spent that machado money on…. Maybe splitting it all up didn’t work well after all
