    The whole strategy argument still blows my mind.

    Yeah I'd rather watch a DH hit 40 or so HR.

    I can almost see the strategy argument in a situation where the pitcher is throwing exceptionally well in a tight game and you get to say the 7th or 8th inning and have a chance to drive a run in from 2nd or 3rd. You have to make to choice to let the pitcher hit because he's pitching really well, or putting in an actual hitter that can get the run in to win the game.

    But that situation comes up what, once or twice a year?

    Yeah, I get where they're coming from...I'm saying it's a shitty argument. I want to see the best pitchers pitching late. And I'd rather the decision to keep them in or pull them be entirely based on what they're employed to do, pitch.

    Rich Eisen's argument for the DH brought up this exact situation, 2:00.

    Also, leave it to Cheeses to have named this thread "2015" when half the offseason is in the following year.

    Sox could use a new fan favorite.

    Because he's been worse than a replacement player for 2 straight years.

    He had surgery on both knees. Has only played like 180 games in the past two years. There are a couple of places he can fit (if healthy.) Once again; for league minimum.

    Venable would be a much better add.

    Don't disagree for multiple reasons. And they can't say the sox can't afford him now. Unless they are still hoping Avi Spring, turns this on for Avi Summer.

    I say let's see what these homos can do before pulling the trigger on another FA signing.
