  • Tim Anderson Injures Left Hand

    I heard he would be out 4-6 weeks earlier today. Hopefully that's just a rumor. https://www.chicagotribune.com/sport...2te-story.html

      All the people who complained about that video at the airport better feel silly right now.

          Gonna be tough to overcome that loss. If this team makes the playoffs it's going to take a full team effort. This isn't like where they have Sheets and Vaughn who can nominally cover a corner OF slot and still hit well. There is no replacement for TA available. I assume Robert becomes the leadoff hitter and Moncada moves to the 2-hole, but you don't replace that much raw talent easily especially at such a key defensive and offensive position.

            Stone and Benetti believe that Pollock will lead off, we'll see.

              Another development, Garcia appeared to injure his right knee swinging at a pitch. Stone and Benetti mentioned that he wasn't putting any weight on his leg in subsequent at bats.

                I was out all day yesterday, this is pretty terrible. Tim hasn't been his best for the past couple months but he's still light years better than Leury. And if Leury is now hurt and needs to miss time... I have no clue what they'll do. They'd probably have to bring in someone like Didi Gregorious, because I really don't think someone like Yolbert or Romy (who is still rehabbing I think) are ready.

                Best case scenario is that Sosa grabs hold of the starting spot over the next 6 weeks, and Tim comes back refreshed for the final stretch into the playoffs. But I'm not very confident.

                As far as the lineup, I'd go Robert/Moncada at the top against RHP and Robert/Vaughn against LHP.

                  Sosa should play SS every day; bring up Gonzales or Burger; Moncada can move to 2nd to give Harrison/Sosa a break. Don't need more no-hit veterans on this team.
                  And Martin should be on this roster too.
                  One day they'll learn to use their young players instead of overpaying the next VV

                    I highly highly doubt there are any plans to have Moncada play any 2B. There have been so many opportunities in the past for them to try it and they haven't done it, I doubt anything is going to change now.

                    Romy has had a miserable season full of injuries and just got back to Charlotte yesterday after missing nearly 2 months. He did hit a HR in his first game back (he was 1 for 4) and he was clobbering the ball during his AZ rehab stint (1.18 OPS in 5 games), but it still seems way too soon to rush him up to the majors. Still, you're probably right that he couldn't be worse than Didi.

                    The most likely outcome is that Sosa struggles during his first extended action at the MLB level. He's been struggling at AAA over the past month or two, I just don't think he's ready for the everyday SS role. I hope I'm wrong.

                      I wouldn't be shocked if Romy is up after a week to get his feet wet. He played in the majors last year and would have been up this year over Sosa if he hadn't had such a rough season of it.

                        Problem with every option mentioned is all of these guys are pretty below average defenders at the most important defensive position on the diamond. I will say it again, I would much rather get a glove first guy at short and hit him 9 than a weak defender who probably won't do much with the bat anyway. Sosa is a 2b, Romy isn't a major leauger, Sanchez isn't anywhere near ready, Didi Gregious is one of the worst defensive SS in baseball and he no longer hits. Give me Simmons. Even if he hits .180, he will make a lot more positive impact with his Glove than having these others guys come hit .220 with crap D.

                        We are not going to replace Anderson's bat, but we can upgrade his subpar D. If we can fix the SS D, the offense will need to be improved by Eloy, Robert, Grandal and Moncada (and throw Pollock in there) earning their paychecks at the plate.

                          Totally agree with you which means the Sox will get someone with a bad bat and a bad glove.

                            But a good approach. Don't forget the good approach.
