Bradley is now 0 for his last 26. He is exactly who we thought he would be. He doesn't belong on a ML team. We have Refsnider and Duran, both of whom can play the OF and can hit a bit too.
Henry has returned to his penny pinching ways so don't look for a major infusion of talent via trade. We certainly need one or two reliable RH RPs if we are going to make it into October.

Welcome back Pumpsie hope to read more of your posts.  I do not know any one on this board who doesn't think JBJ belongs elsewhere or as a late inning defensive replacement.

As far as the moves MGT would make before the deadline,  a good opportunity I saw was 1B Josh Bell of the Nats.  Good hitter, would cost possibly.Dalbec and Downs or Dalbec and Duran.

Wouldnt surprise if Bloom borrowed frm his Tampa playbook and traded Bogey for a pitcher and prospects.

I think the relief pitching revamp is all in-house.  Taylor probably returns inside two weeks.  Whitlock goes to the pen on his return, and German may be the best new reliever in our system waiting his turn.  The scraps like Barnes and Brasier get traded in a package including a couple  prospects to clear room on the 40 man.

Cora started that cluster**** by using his temporary closer in a shut down role to lead off an inning after we got the lead in the 7th. Bad move had both my wife and I shaking our heads.

I've been wondering about any nefarious manipulation of those above him into trying to guilt them into trading for arms or something. This little mess last night also might help any anti-houck sentiment, as if to soften us for a trade or guilt him into vaxing or something akin to such nonsense.

I mean, there's gotta be something other than being a Robles fanboy, right?

As to your last sentence-------NOT FOR CORA THEIR ISN'T!!!!!!!   Somehow we pulled it out even if we gave two of the runs back in the 10th with the Jays having the winning runs on base.  OK, I do not like Cora; I think he is a rotten filthy cheater, but am I wrong is saying that he has misused his bullpen time and again by using the wrong men at the wrong time?  He and Bradley must go after this season as a part of a little housecleaning.

We've all missed you here Pumpsie, and on this board almost to a man we want Bradley out of that lineup once and for all.  What does it take to get the front office and Bradley's surrogate Dady prune face convinced that this guy simply is an elephant in the garden with respect to his handling a starting position with his balsa wood bat.  He needs to go, either as a fourth outfielder PERMANENTLY  or somewhere else where within a year or so he will be released from that team too..... But good to have you here.  Wonder what happened to your "pal" r-karp.  The guy has just disappeared from sight on the other board and hasn't posted here in over a year.

There's some noise out there to bring up Bello as a bullpen arm, theSox' best available minor leaguer who is currently healthy.  The rub there, he is a starting pitcher, and putting him in the pen at the begining might screw up his mindset.

Whitlock is already designated for reliever when he comes back (next week??).

So we can hang with everyone we've faced this year. We have room for improvement at 2 positions and the BP.

I would love to see Seabold get another start before it all goes Tampa/NY. See if he bounces back and get an idea of what we have.

If hanging means being walked off in every AL East park (twice by BAL) and losing every series to AL East teams, then yep, we're hanging.  If they can't turn this around it's going to be a long stretch to the ASB with those 14 NYY and TB games coming up.
Nope, I mean hanging as in we're in the majority of the games and can win these games with the addition of a pair (or trio) of front line relievers to add to the best of what we already have. This is not throwing good money after bad, as they say down here. (IMO)

OK the Sox escape with a win.  But Bloom get off your butt and get some quality relievers.

It's bad enough this wasn't addressed in the offseason, but we've had half a season and the bullpen is not good. There is nobody on this staff where you say "Oh good, so and so is coming in".  It's edge of your seat every night.  This team can win games if they don't give them up and don't tell me this nightly saga doesn't weigh on the position players too.
