    At this point, the Sox would be lucky to get a batboy for him. Is there any situation where this guy can pitch? I read where he gave up 6 runs in a simulated game.

    Lol. Maybe the simulated players knew he was tipping his pitches.

    How much of the decision to sign Robertson was Kenny's and how much was Hahn's is hard to say.  It was a win-now move, but at 4 years and $ 46 million it was a piss-poor business decision.   Robertson was a good, not great closer for NY which is why even the spendthrift Yankees let him walk for the kind of money he wanted. Closers shouldn't cost $ 12 million per year unless their last name is Chapman.  Robertson was barely worth the $ 10 million he was paid last year thanks to a September meltdown.  Now that he's melting down even sooner, he's not even close to worth his $ 11 million this year and the $ 25 million owed him for 2017-2018 looks like a big albatross right now.  It's why no other team wanted him in the trade market, unless the Sox were prepared to eat a big chunk of that and even then, clubs weren't willing to give up any good prospects.

    Bottom line is we will never know how adept at their jobs Williams and Hahn are until they are working for someone not named Jerry Reinsdorf.

    I think we know how adept Williams is. He is so ingrained in that ass-kissing job description that there is no hope for him. I still think there is time to save Hahn.
