    Neverett Out at WEEI

    This is like a bonkers bad idea. I'm already dreading the day Castiglione retires. I really liked Neverett, and I'm sad about this.

    The Red Sox and Analytics

    Yeah, it's why I even questioned whether or not Cameron's comments were accurate (despite him being one of the most prominent faces of Fangraphs to me); I've gotten very used to the Red Sox automatically being on the forefront of advanced analytics, and it was pretty shocking to hear that...

    CBS to sell 98.5 TSH

    Ironically, I find that trying to listen to WEEI on a transistor radio inside Fenway Park is impossible since they switched from AM to FM.

    The Red Sox and Analytics

    I'm not sure if this belongs in its own thread, but I was reading Dave Cameron's Fangraphs chat today and he made this comment: 12:16 gump: What’s the current view of Boston’s analytics group? I know when Dombrowski took over several people left for Arizona, and then more left this offseason...

    Felger and Mazz - Creating False Naratives one day at a time

    I can't wait to hear these guys complain that this game was TOO LONG.

    NY Mets closer Jenrry Mejia suspended 80 games.

    http://espn.go.com/new-york/mlb/story/_/id/13333683/new-york-mets-jenrry-mejia-suspended-162-games-positive-test     Link name pretty much says it all, and only a couple of weeks after his last suspension was up.   Whoops, should have checked the main MLB thread for the update.

    Gammons: "This isn't going to end well"

        When John Henry came out and talked to the media a few weeks ago, wasn't one of the things he said about Ben that he had basically executed the plan that ownership had given him?

    The Bullpen

        I was looking at the number of innings pitched for the bullpen this morning, since my immediate thought was that they're being used to bail out short outings by starters rather frequently, and while they're sixth in total innings pitched, they're actually third in innings per game (behind, I...

    What Song Should Play During Drew's First Home AB?

      That's what JD did, and that was perfect.

    Fixing WEEI

        Several days late on this, but am I the only one who has trouble getting a radio signal inside Fenway Park?   Totally one of those guys who listens to the radio broadcast during games (or, used to).  I can definitely get 98.5, and the old 850 AM station (which no longer broadcasts the...

    Felger and Mazz - Creating False Naratives one day at a time

    Did Felger really say that pit bulls deserve to be in dog fights because they're barely dogs this afternoon? A friend of mine heard this and is fuming over it.

    Kirk and Callahan: Done

    I haven't listened to it, but apparently John McCain was on D&C this morning. I'm pretty sure we could reconstruct the conversation without actually listening to it. http://audio.weei.com/m/audio/21317946/john_mccain.htm
