— Where Thinking Red Sox Fans Obsess about the Sox

Wednesday, August 01, 2018

What Do We Got?

With the trade deadline come and gone the local nine brought in some reinforcements and prepare for the 55 game sprint to the finish with a 5 game lead in the division.  At an outrageous 75-34 the Sox are on a 111 win pace and even playing .500 ball the rest of the way would put them at 102 wins.  Obviously there is still a lot to play for with the division up for grabs though the Sox have an opportunity this weekend to put a stranglehold on it with the Yankees in town for four games.  Let’s take a look at things;

Infield

The addition of Ian Kinsler was a good bit of business.  While I would have loved to have seen a Jonathan Schoop acquisition Kinsler strikes me as a guy who might get a bit of a bounce coming to a contender and a chance to win that elusive ring.  His acquisition seems to have raised questions about the chances of a Dustin Pedroia return in 2018 which surprised me.  Once Pedroia returned to the DL after just a few games I mentally counted him out. We saw this with the little fella in 2012 and he’s six years older now.  There is also some reason to be concerned about Rafael Devers who is on the DL with a hamstring injury.  Hammies seem to linger so adding Kinsler gives the Sox some wiggle room in not having to rush him back.  Kinsler probably won’t play as well as Nunez did last year (though if he wants to I’m cool with that) but he should be able to make a similar type contribution.  With Brock Holt, Nunez and Kinsler manager Alex Cora has some pieces to mix and match and the versatility of Nunez and especially Holt is really beneficial.

Blake Swihart

It’s alive!  Christian Vazquez was injured on July 7 and all Swihart has done with this opportunity is grab it with both hands hitting .407/.467/.667 including his walk off Monday night.  OK OK sample sizes etc…but not only have the performances been good but he looks to my untrained eye a lot more comfortable out there both at the plate and behind it.  Swihart has shown enough competence at various other positions to have completely sucked me into believing that at worst he has a future as a Brock Holt type (now with catching!) and still could be a starting catcher.  More importantly he gives the Sox a different dimension.  If Cora has gained trust in Swihart he now has the pitch caller (Sandy Leon), the defensive whiz (Christian Vazquez) and the bat (Swihart) to deploy as he deems appropriate.  One key part of team building in my opinion is having complimentary pieces and Swihart gives the Sox that.

Rotation

Exhale.

OK, now inhale slowly…hold it…hold it…exhale again.

There, feel better?  I don’t think I’m wishcasting when I say this trip to the DL has all the earmarks of the Pedro Martinez Memorial Disabled List Stint to give a guy who ain’t exactly the biggest dude in the world a chance to gather himself.  There is also a bit of potential gamesmanship at work here as it means the Yankees see Chris Sale one fewer time before the playoffs when it is looking more and more likely that these two teams have a high likelihood of playing in the Division Series.

Beyond that this answers the question villageidiom asked last week, was Nathan Eovaldi necessary?  It was a fair question but it gets back to my opinion about “enough pitching.”  Anytime you think you have enough pitching you should stand in front of a mirror, say “we don’t need any more pitching” then punch yourself in the face really hard.  Repeat that until your body refuses to utter the phrase “we don’t need any more pitching.”  Eovaldi was a nice get for the Sox I think.  There is a Jake Peavy or even Drew Pomeranz circa 2016 vibe.  Maybe he is not the guy who thrusts them into the World Series but he is a guy capable of giving solid starts and helping to keep up the momentum over the final two months.  This weekend is a good example.  Maybe he will pitch well, maybe he won’t, but I feel a lot better with him getting the ball on Saturday than I would with Hector Velazquez or Jalen Beeks.

The Sox have two huge X factors still looming out there.  One is of course the perceived enigma that is David Price.  I say perceived enigma because while he feels like an unknown Price has actually been pretty steady overall for the Sox; 3.99, 3.38, 3.97 are his ERAs in his three years here and while that includes some up and down performances within the season he gets there at the end.  With that said his scheduled start on Sunday is obviously one that people are going to be watching with more than a bit of interest and I suspect there is no small set of Red Sox Nation that will take a fair amount of joy in seeing him get knocked around.

The other X factor is Eduardo Rodriguez.  There is still an expectation that Rodriguez can return toward the end of the month/start of September.  That is a heck of an arm to add at that stage of the season and even if he only has 3 or 4 starts left in 2018 this race is likely to be tight enough that that could be a tipping point.

Bullpen

Well, I guess this is what we got.  Are you comfortable with it?  I’m not.  The Sox have gone through this the last couple of years with the raw numbers of the bullpen looking good but the consistency and reliability out there being a question mark.  Tyler Thornburgh has looked like a guy growing his comfort level after nearly two full years since pitching competitively and that is a big one.  If he and Matt Barnes can establish themselves as trusted options then Heath Hembree and Joe Kelly can be the live but inconsistent arms working the 6th/7th innings they are better suited to.  Ryan Brasier has also looked good and is making a bit of an Austin Maddox type contribution to this year’s team.  The guy I still think is an exciting option is Brandon Workman.  I can’t look at him and not think to myself “HE PITCHED A 1-2-3 8TH INNING IN A WORLD SERIES CLINCHING GAME!” (I often think in capital letters).  This isn’t just some schlub, this is a good pitcher.

Another bullpen name to consider is the previously mentioned Eduardo Rodriguez.  The Sox had some success with Drew Pomeranz in 2016 and David Price in 2017.  I won’t be shocked if the Venezuelan Viper gets a look in such a role particularly if the Sox are able to open a lead in the division and have some time to play around with it a bit.

The Sox are in good shape.  It has been a fun season (and heck I haven’t even mentioned Mookie Betts yet) and it should be even more fun over the next couple of months.  I think Dave Dombrowski did well at the deadline to bring in some reinforcements and Alex Cora has a team he should feel very confident in.

I wonder if Brian Cashman still thinks the Sox need to play against the Yankees more often.

It’s alive!
Alive, but now day-to-day with hamstring tightness.

Because the world hates me.
   4. Chip Posted: August 02, 2018 at 11:29 PM (#5720112)
Obvious now why he was one of only two guys without a hit tonight.
   5. Jose is an Absurd Force of Nature Posted: August 02, 2018 at 11:31 PM (#5720114)
So something called Oscar Hernandez seems to be the starting catcher in Pawtucket. I assume they have to call him up in case Leon gets hurt. He’s thrown out 13 of 27 base stealers so that’s nice. Poor Brandon Workman probably goes down for him.
   6. Darren Posted: August 03, 2018 at 02:09 PM (#5720341)
Wouldn't they go with Dan Butler? Also, Soxprospects lists Hernandez as being on the suspended list.
   7. Jose is an Absurd Force of Nature Posted: August 03, 2018 at 05:13 PM (#5720541)
Apparently that's what's happening. Butler has been called up. When I looked it up last night I thought Butler hadn't played since May which seemed wrong but I'm old so whatever. Swihart on the DL.

Also Drew Pomeranz has volunteered to be available out of the bullpen tonight Cora said. He's still the planned starter Tuesday night but he gives Cora an option. For a guy who gets whacked around a lot that's a good bit of team play right there.
   8. Jose is an Absurd Force of Nature Posted: August 03, 2018 at 10:20 PM (#5720772)
So IF the Sox must use Mookie on the infield moving forward I’d much rather see him at third with Nunez/Holt playing second base. No issue tonight but I have no interest in seeing our best player risking injury in an unfamiliar position. Third is unfamiliar too but of course no double plays to turn.
   9. Jose is an Absurd Force of Nature Posted: August 03, 2018 at 10:26 PM (#5720780)
On August 16 NESN is running “The Ryan Westmoreland Story”.
   10. Chip Posted: August 03, 2018 at 11:08 PM (#5720801)
Kinsler to DL, a Tony Renda recalled. Who knew they had added him as a minor league FA after he was released by AZ this spring?

He was part of the package the Yankees sent to the Reds in the original Chapman deal, after being acquired from the Nats. Contract bought by the D’Backs last summer, released in March.
   11. Textbook Editor Posted: August 04, 2018 at 01:09 AM (#5720812)
Jose--taking this from the chatter:

Mookie said he asked to play second base. Called it a dream come true.


What was interesting about this (to me) is that... this could be the way they get Martinez's bat into the lineup in any potential NL WS games against a team with predominantly FB hitters:

2B: Betts
1B: Moreland
RF: Martinez
LF: Benintendi
CF: JBJ

(Maybe you shuffle the OF some if you think having Martinez in LF helps against a particular team/lineup.)

Not saying it's ideal, and if Kinsler has good production the rest of the way, you probably sit JBJ (especially against a LHP) in such circumstances, but... it's a thought. If it's 9-18-27 innings, I think you can chance Mookie at 2B. It probably won't happen, but at least they have the flexibility where they *could* do that if need be.

Was this because Lin hasn't been down for 10 days yet, and wasn't eligible to be recalled? (I forget how that works...)

House money the rest of the series, as far as I'm concerned. At worst, they'll end it up the same as when they went into the series, but with 4 more games off the schedule; that's a win.

Side Note: I don't recall seeing a Steven Wright update recently--has their been one? That's another guy who could possibly contribute down the stretch (if healthy)...
   13. Jose is an Absurd Force of Nature Posted: August 04, 2018 at 07:35 AM (#5720826)
TE - a player can be recalled before the ten days have elapsed if he replaces a player on the DL. I think there might be a hitter/pitcher limitation (e.g. Lin couldn’t replace a pitcher who went on the DL but I’m not sure). However Lin got scratched from the Pawtucket lineup yesterday for some niggling injury so presumably he’s not ready to go either.

Good call on a way to get everyone in the lineup for a World Series game. Here’s hoping that is an issue to be dealt with.
   14. jacksone (AKA It's OK...) Posted: August 04, 2018 at 09:33 AM (#5720842)
Devers, Kinsler, Swihart, Pedroia, Vazquez - squint and that's a potential starting IF right there. Toss in Sale, E Rod and Wright and the DL rotation has a great start. At least the OF has been healthy and good this year.
   15. villageidiom Posted: August 04, 2018 at 10:21 AM (#5720844)

Yeah, they could use a pinch-runner. (ducks)
   16. Darren Posted: August 04, 2018 at 11:20 AM (#5720863)
Renda has been having an amazing year in the minors--.353/.399/.529--and it's nice to see him get another shot in the big leagues, however briefly. Does anybody know what they did to get him on the 40 man?



   17. Textbook Editor Posted: August 04, 2018 at 12:13 PM (#5720871)
Does anybody know what they did to get him on the 40 man?


Nothing seems posted yet on that, as far as I can find, but... Eyeballing the 40-man roster, it would seem one option would be moving Pedroia to the 60-day DL, right? He's been on the 10-day for 60+ days, so would be eligible to come off it and play, and it's the one move they can make without actually affecting anyone playing in AAA or MLB.

They'd have to clear a 40-man spot come the end of the year if/when Pedroia played but... I am kind of doubting that'll happen.
   18. Darren Posted: August 04, 2018 at 12:28 PM (#5720878)
That makes sense. Things loosen up when they can take Butler off the 40 man after one of the catchers comes back.
   19. Textbook Editor Posted: August 04, 2018 at 01:05 PM (#5720899)

Any concern someone would claim him? He'd have to clear waivers, right? I didn't think you could drop a guy from the 40-man without putting him on waivers...

I realize he's no C dynamo, but I would guess a fair number of teams have far worse at C in AAA and would be decent, cheap depth... But of course if the Red Sox view Swihart as possible legit C depth now, they have 3 C's under control and usually that'll get you through a season...

I think the Red Sox and Butler have done this dance about 30 times before without much difficulty.

Worrying about adding Pedroia back to the roster any time before 2019 is IMO the height of wishful thinking.

Well, sure... but I had half-hoped he's make some sort of September appearance, be left off the playoff roster, but hung around for a playoff run as a "veteran presence" in the clubhouse (even though not playing). That seems to me to be the best-case scenario for 2018; I don't have any delusions of him actually contributing.
   22. villageidiom Posted: August 04, 2018 at 07:12 PM (#5721083)

I'm down with people in game chatter discussing everything he does well with "That was totally unnecessary." I've earned it.
   26. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: August 05, 2018 at 01:04 AM (#5721199)
Wait, Mookie was originally a 2B. They moved him to the OF because he was blocked by Pedroia. Saying that it's an "unfamiliar position" ignores he played like 250 games in the minors at that positon. Meanwhile, he's NEVER played 3B.
   27. Jose is an Absurd Force of Nature Posted: August 06, 2018 at 01:00 AM (#5721566)
What we got is a sweep.
   28. Jose is an Absurd Force of Nature Posted: August 06, 2018 at 01:06 AM (#5721568)
Scott - I’m not saying he’s completely unfamiliar with it but he hasn’t really played it as an MLB player (14 games in 2014) and he didn’t look comfortable at all on that first ground ball Friday night.

That said I’m sure he could do fine but second base is an injury position. You just have too many plays to make with a runner bearing down on you and your back to the play and Betts hasn’t tried to turn a double play in four years. He’s just too important to risk. Any position change brings elevated injury risk and because of what Mookie means I don’t want to #### with it. Play Nunez/Holt at second and Mookie at third if necessary. Yeah he’s never played it but really it’s fielding ground balls. I’m not that concerned.

TE’s idea about doing it in the World Series is one I’d consider if we make it (assuming Devers at third). Yeah the risk still exists but it’s the World Series.
   29. Nasty Nate Posted: August 06, 2018 at 09:33 AM (#5721612)
I went to sleep when they were down 4-1.

I know griping about announcers is overdone, but Vasgersian seemed to have a bad night. Among other inanities, he said (and I paraphrase) : If you had told me before the season that NYY would have both Chapman and Britton, I'd tell them to get ready to polish the championship trophy.

He was talking about two 1-inning relievers...who combined for a 3.08 ERA in 2017.
   30. villageidiom Posted: August 06, 2018 at 09:40 AM (#5721617)
My local Yankees fans are bemoaning that the Yankees had to do it without Judge and Sanchez, but (a) they also think Sanchez has been more valuable than he has been, and (b) they don't think Boston has been affected by the DL much. Yeah, just missing two starting pitchers, their starting 3B, their starting 2B (and shortly into the series their primary backup), their starting C (and a backup). That's not much.

Just a solid series throughout for Boston. Strong offense, strong defense, strong pitching, strong baserunning. They won by blowout; they won by 9th-inning comeback and 10th-inning heroics; they won by shutdown starts.
   31. Jose is an Absurd Force of Nature Posted: August 06, 2018 at 10:03 AM (#5721627)
just missing two starting pitchers


To nitpick a bit it's three (Sale, EdRod and Wright). Add in that Pomeranz ain't exactly 100% and well yeah.

I think it's fair to say the Yankees were probably more harmed by the DL with the loss of Judge and Sanchez than the Sox but it's not as dramatic a difference as they'd have you believe. The guy that really underwhelmed me this weekend was Gleyber Torres. I don't know if he's still hampered by the hip injury or what but he's not moving well at all. Moreland got an RBI Friday night when Torres kind of glided after a ball and even the game winning hit, he probably couldn't have done anything, I suspect Renda would have scored even if Torres had dived and stopped it but man don't you have to give that a whirl?

But I'm more interested in the Sox. I think the big takeaway this weekend for me is the rotation. Brian Johnson had a bad line but I think pitched pretty well. For a guy who is probably our 7th starter nominally I thought he did well enough. Nathan the Unnecessary was great again and it was very encouraging to see Price pitch so well. And of course I've left out Slick Rick who is having a very good year. He's not dominant but he's a perfect pitcher for this team. He can go deep into games and he doesn't get shelled so even when he's off the Sox have a chance to win with the offense. I find myself encouraged when I see his starts coming up.

The other bit of good news was that I thought Bogaerts looked decent at the plate coming back from the hand injury. He didn't seem to be jumping at the ball much.
   32. villageidiom Posted: August 06, 2018 at 10:27 AM (#5721643)
To nitpick a bit it's three (Sale, EdRod and Wright). Add in that Pomeranz ain't exactly 100% and well yeah.
I originally had three. I figured they really would only have 5 starters at a time, and of the collection of Sale / Price / Porcello / Rodriguez / Eovaldi / Pomeranz / Johnson I'm not sure that Wright starts ahead of enough of them to say he'd really be in the rotation if everyone were healthy. So I cut down to two. Likewise, the Yankees are missing Jordan Montgomery, and given the state of their rotation one could argue he'd be in it if healthy. But as I did with Wright I opted not to bother making that argument.

The reason the Yankees appear harmed more by the DL is that they don't have adequate backups. Boston is missing Sale and Rodriguez, but Eovaldi and Johnson are handling things just fine. They're missing Pedroia and Kinsler, but Holt ain't too bad. They're missing Vazquez, but Leon is not like a huge downgrade or anything. Both are losing good and great players to the DL, but one of the two teams is unable to absorb the hit. That's not a DL issue; it's a roster construction issue. Dombrowski deserves a lot of credit here.
   33. Jose is an Absurd Force of Nature Posted: August 06, 2018 at 10:29 AM (#5721644)
Agreed on Dombrowski. This is a really deep squad. I think signing Nunez this winter was a really good, underrated piece of business and as it happens the decision to lumber along with Blake Swihart has paid off as well.
   34. Nasty Nate Posted: August 06, 2018 at 10:37 AM (#5721649)
Just a solid series throughout for Boston. Strong offense, strong defense, strong pitching, strong baserunning.
In terms of defense and baserunning, they seemed so much more polished and sophisticated than the Yankees.
   35. jacksone (AKA It's OK...) Posted: August 06, 2018 at 10:47 AM (#5721656)
I think signing Nunez this winter was a really good, underrated piece of business


He's got a 77 OPS+ with bad baserunning and terrible defense. I guess I like the guy, but he hasn't exactly helped the Sox win all that much. -1.3 bWAR so far. Yes, yes, complaining about the 5th or 6th infield option is a bit much, I just don't think Dombrowski should be *credited* with the signing.
   36. Darren Posted: August 12, 2018 at 05:04 PM (#5725431)
Mookie has 8 WAR through 99 games. That's a pace of about 13 WAR for a full season (#2 behind a Ruth year). Even after missing a chunk of time, he's on pace for 11.2 WAR, which would be top 10 in the integration era. And he's doing it by being really good to excellent at .... everything. Average, power, discipline, baserunning, fielding. Allllll of it.

Let's appreciate how great it is to be watching this happen during what is already an amazing season.

   37. Jose is an Absurd Force of Nature Posted: August 12, 2018 at 10:46 PM (#5725524)
Darren - god yes. I was at a party for my parents’ 50th yesterday and my cousin wouldn’t shut up about how anything less than aworld series title would be a massive failure. God I’d hate to feel like that, this is an amazing six months of baseball, enjoy the moment.
   38. Chip Posted: August 12, 2018 at 11:10 PM (#5725539)
Two stats which were noted after today’s result:

1) First time to 50 wins over .500 since the ‘46 team. Which, as we know, only lost in 7 games in the WS because Teddy Ballgame was hurt.

2) This year’s squad will break the franchise wins record of the 1912 team if they merely go 21-21 the rest of the way. That ‘12 team of course won the title, led by MVP Tris Speaker and Smokey Joe Wood, the Chris Sale of his day.

We’ve heard a lot of longtime Sox observers say this current outfield is the best defensive unit in modern Sox history, surpassing the Rice/Lynn/Evans group of the ‘70s. But in an another analogue, contemporary watchers thought the ‘12 team’s troika of Duffy Lewis, Speaker, and Harry Hooper was the best they’d ever seen, anchored by Speaker, the Jackie Bradley Jr. of his day.
   39. TomH Posted: August 13, 2018 at 08:46 AM (#5725578)
Yes, Speaker/Hooper/Duffy. Hooper is quoted by Fred Lieb, Babe Ruth, John McGraw (at least) as the best def RFer ever. Hooper would have played center for most teams. Speaker is generally regarded as the best def CFer for the first 80 years of MLB. The Bill James HBA refers to the trio as "famous as the greatest defensive outfield of all time. James goes on to say they probably don't rate with the 1980 A's Henderson-Murphy-Armas. But yeah, I wouldn't put the '18 Sox in this category yet unless you get some real hard data to show this unit dwarfs any MLB OF in the past few years.
   40. John DiFool2 Posted: August 13, 2018 at 11:19 PM (#5726175)
What do we got?

A 10 game lead.
   41. Chip Posted: August 13, 2018 at 11:47 PM (#5726185)

Should be fine as long as they’re not starting Jim Wright, Bobby Sprowl, and Mike Torrez in a majority of their early September games.

On the injury front, C.C. to the DL today with more knee problems. I think that makes Lance Lynn the Yankees ace at the moment, given Severino’s long stretch of suck and Tanaka’s more recent struggles.

   44. Jose is an Absurd Force of Nature Posted: August 14, 2018 at 01:19 PM (#5726498)
Just so we are clear I hate Chip and Jacksone.

I think generally this is why I'm not particularly concerned about the Sox falling apart. I mean I'm me so it's always lingering but the rotation is good and deep. They don't need to be completely reliant on one or two guys, they can generally expect to get a good start more often than not.

Aw come on now, I was not being negative! Just having fun with a previous September collapse. After a 3 WS wins in the last 15 years and now watching the best Red Sox team ever I think it's ok to shake your head at previous blow ups.

Will I be bummed if the Sox don't win the WS, Mookie isn't the MVP and Sale isn't they CY? Yes. Is there a very realistic chance of all of those, yeah, there is, and it is ####### fun to watch!
   46. Jose is an Absurd Force of Nature Posted: August 15, 2018 at 10:03 AM (#5727088)
Last night I was watching Porcello deal for the first four innings and thinking "wouldn't it just be right for this season if he threw a no no?" Alas. But man, Sandy Leon and Brock Holt as the slugging stars. This is a lot of fun.
