    Abandon Boston? And why Hartford? Because we're worried that a stadium on the water in Bridgeport would be too fucking nice? Just because the PawSox moved to Worcester you want to shut down the team, move out of the city that kicked out the Whalers and unsuccessfully wooed the 5 Time Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots.

    Now Adam Plutko was a nobody. We knew that before and we knew that after he was knocked out in the 5th giving up 5 ERs. Now the Tampa Bay starter is literally nobody! If you can't beat nobody, then you sure as hell should be worried about somebody. But I'm not worried because the Red Sox are going to make quick work of nobody.

    We shpould not move the team to Hartford. Any city that fumbled the Patriots -- especially at a time when I was working there and would have really liked to have the Pats in my backyard -- is not worthy. Since it's all about me, if the Sox get moved, then let's move them to Northern NJ. We have a ton of transplanted Sox fans here and it would piss off MFY fans to have the Red Sox in their territory. Upsetting entitled douchey MFYFs is always a worthy endeavor.

    Back on planet earth, it would be really nice to pound these Rays. The celebrated mini-slump, the one that caused some to bunch their panties and others to overreact themselves, and wrongly conclude that anyone expressing any level of concern was, horrors, panicking, was of course started by one of those starterless games. So enough of that, enough of the Rays, and start this series off by beating Nobody.

    I agree, theoshmeo.

    And, “The New England Red Sox of Bergen County New Jersey Sponsored By KPMG” has a really nice flow to it, as team names go.

    I’m all in. This needs to happen.

    Last time Hector pitched we backed him with two hits and no runs. Not again boys...please. A win tonight is important if we want to win another series as we face arguably one of the best pitchers in the majors in Snell on Sunday.

    Anyone gonna be in the [shit]house tonight? The rays have a promotion where you can get tickets to a Friday home game for $7 per ticket, so naturally I’m taking the wife for the sterile baseball experience.

    This is going way too far.



    Team should clearly be moved to Providence

    The Rays have the same record as the Dodgers.
    Beat them anyway.
    Geaux, Sox!!!!!!!!
    p.s. Kevin Cash should get the MOY, IMO.

    Soooooo, it’s like “The End of Times” on Maui. We are dealing with a hurricane and massive brush fires that have shut down the road for one side of the island to the other. The bright side is I still have power. I need the Sox game to get going as a distraction to real life.

    Random question... Didn't want to start a thread about this, so sticking it here. I have looked all over but can't seem to hunt it down. Anybody know where to buy the grey (what appears to be) light weight sweatshirt Dana LeVangie wears during games? I live in Oregon, so I am talking on-line not brick and mortar store. Apparently my on-line shopping skills need improvement...I can't find it anywhere. Thanks!

    so is Eck going to still be around? I can't imagine he does every game the rest of the season.

    Any updates on E-Rod? Haven't heard anything, and he's been out quite a while. Be nice to get him back for Sep/Oct.

    And did I also read that (barring any setback of course) he could be available to pitch for the Sox next weekend?

    He's from Mass and he's been in the organization so long that it's at least possible he's had that shirt for decades, and there really hasn't been a way to buy a new one like it for decades.

    Any candidates for parks that are as depressing as Tropicana? Even when the Sox win, I feel a little depressed after staring at that grim atmosphere for three-plus hours.

    This talk of the Red Sox moving is ridiculous, it will never happen.

    We should be talking instead about something that is sensible, possible, and win-win for everyone: moving the Yankees to Pawtucket.

    Maybe I'm just an old wet towel, but this whole nickname thing just seems stupid. I applaud any effort to make the game more appealing for younger audiences, but the nickname shtick kinda reminds me of Fox's Scooter campaign:

    Flaco is Spanish for “skinny”, a tribute to a coach he had when he was growing up.
    They had a pre-game interview on NESN about it.
