Quote from: Sea Dog 23 on May 30, 2023, 03:05:16 PMOn Thursday this week the Sox will have to make a decision on Alfaro, the catcher in Worcester. I think his deal is he has an out clause on that date to go on the 40 man, or become a free-agent.
Quote from: Sea Dog 23 on June 03, 2023, 11:46:41 AMI have a sneaking suspicion that Henry will keep Bloom on another year, after another last place result. ANother year of patch work lineups. As an example, the Sox have an opportunity to extend Verdugo, who has been a life save on days Devers is hitless. However, today they extended Refsnyder for one year with a club option of 2025. Just another band-aid and a yawn toward budget over competitive baseball in Boston.CBS SPorts did an article this week on free-agent pitcher for 2024. Boston was not considered as serious interest for Ohtani, Giilitto, or Cleveland's Bieber. Instead they were thought to be prominent in signing Eduardo Rodriguez again. Just another great slap in the face to their fans.
Quote from: MongoLikeSox on June 22, 2023, 07:34:02 AMI missed an interesting game in Worcester last night. The 'Sox sign this 33 year old ex-MLB bull-pen guy named Kyle Barraclough with 288 games under his belt. No MLB starts, 3 Minor League starts in 2012 and 2 more in Independent ball this year for High Point. So what does he do last night's start? 6IP, 1H, 0R, 4BB and 2K. How in the hell...? You can't make this stuff up. iono Portland's 6:00 game times make it easy to catch a few innings on MiLB-TV before the big club plays, and it's worth a watch. Last night they took on the Phillies #2 prospect, a guy named Abel who throws 97-98MPH with decent breaking pitches. Portland lost, but they put up a good fight against him. Mayer's swing timing looked a bit slow the last few times I saw him the past week or so, but he had no such problems last night. He took the flame-thrower deep after being robbed of a HR the previous AB. If this is any indication, Mayer may have his timing back and could get rolling in AA after a slow start. Cedanne had a bad game. I think he was pressing with the AAA levels' recent IL vacancies. Catcher picked him off at 2B on a bang-bang missed call that should not have even been close. He slid in feet-first, though, kind of like Duran last year on a pick-off. Rookie mistake. He also K'd 3 times, but didn't look over-powered nor over-matched in doing so. He just lost the battles. I would not be surprised to see Yorke and Mayer's fate being tied at the hip from here on out. Yorke's bat is back on track after last season's swing for the fences campaign. He appears to be back to what I saw early last season in Greenville. Mayer might only be a month or two behind him.
