With the exception of Madrigal, they're at full strength. despite his low average he has a knack for getting on base, and has had some clutch hits this season. Besides I wasn't too keen on Collins or Zavala, they did ok in his absence.

Grandal getting a hot bat would start to put fear in opponents.

Anderson SS
Moncada 3B
Abreu 1B
Jiminez LF
Grandal C
Robert CF
Mercedes DH
Mendick 2B
Engel? Eaton?


what is our ultmate playoff potential with IR guys and stuff? Obviously Grandall and Mercedes need to hit well again, but with those first 6 bats you could make a case to DH Grandal or Jiminez and play 3 good defenders at bottom lineup, imo..

Mendick and Mercedes are in the minors and Eaton isn't with the Sox anymore.

Anderson
Robert
Abreu
Jiminez
Grandal
Vaughn
Moncada
Engel/Goodwin/Lamb
Hernandez

or something like that.

Oh yeah, Vaughn and Lamb plus substitute Engel for defense if he gets back.

Vaughn exacerbates pre-existing defensive issues.

This team is scary good.

If Lynn and Rodon keep this up they have all the playoff pitching they need.

What pitch washes out Yermin Mercedes? Does he chase too much? His compact power should be hard to pitch against if he has restraint, maybe shortens his swing?

If he loses some of the gut I think he could better position his hand arch.
