    "Los White Sox," "Los Bulls," and "Los Fire" grind my gears in a non-

    manner. Univison, Hoy, etc. never pulled that shit back in the day.

    Plus, the all-Spanish versions sound cooler anyway.

    We have televisions in the pit that we watch all the games on. If something "special" is happening I would wait till the end of an inning and run to Skyride to finish. Much like I did with the Matt Albers game this past season.

    Yeah, if you have a TV you can see from where you sit, you're not exactly the target audience.

    Mexicans have told me they prefer "Los Bulls" shit (and etc) because they don't actually call the team the Toros when talking about them in Spanish

    They're proper names, so that's really the correct way to do it. Yeah, the Brewers 'Cerveceros' or the 'Gigantes' jerseys look way cooler than Los Bulls, but that's not their name.

    No one is Spain says 'Manchester Unido', because that's not their name. Just as English speakers don't say 'Royal Madrid'.

    sycked If you loved me, you'd all kill yourselves today.

    Seeing that most people only pay for cable for live sports, yeah, it's a nice perk. I barely watch the tv with the cable box these days as practically all channels now have streaming options.

    As I explained, they used to call them Toros etc. back in the day.
    Fuck Spanglish speaking Millennials.

    Also, fuck the rest of you for saying "like" 5 times in an 11 word sentence.
    If you ever see me punch somebody in the throat, that was the reason.

    Sounds like you spent way too much time watching Univision.

    When I was your age, we didn't have 500 cable channels and free porn on demand. Univision was tits...literally.

    cheeses tweet string is a little misleading, those prospects are non roster invitees to spring training. The minor league free agents are a bunch scrubs we just signed to fill out the minor league/spring training rosters

    Apparently they were wearing the number based on the year they were drafted. Burdi and Collins were both wearing #16.

    Soxfest opening currently is being broadcast live on CSN.

    I'd prefer the Sox never call up Soto. Better yet, cut him. No one should have to watch him throw the ball back to the pitcher when the team is planning on tanking.

    He's an obvious upgrade over last year's 2 puds from a receiving standpoint.

    They need a veteran catcher to help develop the young pitchers.

    Saw a clip on FB of Tilson doing Shoot The Puck, and he mentioned going to the 2010 parade "when I was a senior in high school".

    That made me feel really old. Soon enough I'll be in my arb eligible years.

    They won't do that trade, though.

    Obviously not straight up, but if you want talent out of that organization, you'd have to get it from the MLB level. They promoted all their major-league worthy talent already.

    But there's no point in acquiring major league level talent. He'll be in his 5th year of service in 2019 - the idea is to get guys in their 1st or 2nd then. That's how you build a sustainable roster.

    He's also a 2nd baseman - so now Moncada HAS to be moved over. Only way he makes sense is if you're flipping him immediately.

    SABRSox Hollywood Mega-Hunk Bob Balaban Cupcake Mod

    I thought Moncada was one of those 2B that always projected as a move over to 3rd eventually.
  40. IWMB

    IWMB Resident Umpire

    Not really. His offensive profile means he could fit at 3rd or in the OF if 2nd doesn't work out - but ideally he's good enough defensively to stay at 2nd and open up more power positions to others.

    The only reason Boston had him there was because of Pedroia. While in theory he could, not ideal.

    Apparently all of Lawrie's issues last year were caused by fucking shoe inserts. Fucking clown shoes, that's the sort of shit that happens on a high school team not a professional multi-million dollar organization.

    We knew that a few months ago. Lawrie tweeted about how pissed off he was about it.
