    Do you think the Sox will acquire Scherzer in the 2021 season?

    I went with 30%. If you put a gun to my head, it's probably more likely 15%, but we don't have a lot of data on how Chaim behaves in this specific situation (team in contention, prospects to trade, has money available, etc). So I jumped up a tier to account for the uncertainty. I think the real...

    Your top "forgot he was a Red Sox"

    Can we have a thread for "I could have sworn he was a Red Sox," because I came in here all set to mention Ben Sheets, but had the good sense to do a quick Google first.

    Your top “almost-a-Red-Sox”

    I remember the "extra mile" thing being about Teixiera, but it's all a jumble at this point.

    Your top “almost-a-Red-Sox”

    Weren't we a close second for Jose Abreu's services? Edit - Whup, beaten to it.

    2021 All-Star Game Rosters

    Denver police arrested a group planning a mass shooting at the ASG Friday night. Edit - Or possibly one guy, and some people for gun violations w/r/t...

    Will MLB make it to postseason without stoppage?

    Before the season actually started, I was betting on it lasting two weeks. I voted 'within the month' but I think two weeks is still about right.

    Thank you David Price

    Alex Verdugo, new Red Sox star!

    Didn't realize Verdugo was one of these guys. Didn't realize these guys were still in baseball. Welp, I hate this now. I'd legitimately be happier if we cut him loose tomorrow.

    Thank you Mookie Betts

    I went to see Deven Marerro play for Lowell in 2012 in his first series after he was drafted, but all I remember was how a kid named Mookie dominated the game instead. Then I got to watch him do it for another seven years. Thanks, Mookie.

    Thank you David Price

    You seemed like a bit of a prick sometimes, but then so do I and I don't have the Boston sports media breathing down my neck. You took way more heat than you should have while you were here, and you responded by carrying us to a World Series. Thanks, David. Genuinely, thank you.

    2019 WS - Nationals vs. Astros - Gamethread

    This is almost certainly the truth, but narratively it's hard not to look at the stark difference between games 1 and 2 and 3 through 5 and think the Nats turned into pumpkins. They were extreme underdogs from the get-go, but my suspicion is that won't be the story people remember, particularly...

    2019 WS - Nationals vs. Astros - Gamethread

    So I see now that the Nationals goal was not to defeat their reputation for folding in the postseason, but to reach the biggest stage possible and then fold, in order to cement that reputation for all time.

    Drake Takes the Cake

    The point is that his constitutional rights aren't what you seem to think they are, because they don't include 'not getting fired for being a threatening, belligerent asshole.'
