    Bruins Prospect News and Notes

    Echoing others - thanks for providing these updates cshea. I always look forward to reading them. Another example of the awesomeness of SOSH.

    ERod to Tigers: 5 years/$77 million, opt out after Y2

    Folks can lament his departure and that’s fine. I never enjoyed his pitching profile and didn’t have much faith in his starts. Bloom’s performance so far has been pretty good, albeit a SSS. He’s brought on some solid pitching talent through several channels - trade/Rule 5/free agent signing...

    ERod to Tigers: 5 years/$77 million, opt out after Y2

    Nope. Watched the same guy. Apparently so did Bloom.

    ERod to Tigers: 5 years/$77 million, opt out after Y2

    I won’t be missing him much. 80 pitches over 4 inning outings, what seemed like infinite 3-2 counts, way too much time between pitches, inconsistent results. I have faith Bloom will replace him and, quite likely, improve over the cost/results equation.

    2022 Hall of Fame Class

    Dick “don’t call me Richie” Allen hit the hardest home run I ever saw at Fenway. As observed from the bleachers, the ball went from bat into the left field netting in about a second and was still rising when it hit.

    ALCS 2021: Red Sox vs. Astros Discussion Thread

    After last year, the 2021 season was a huge win for me. 1. They kept it interesting through the summer 2. They made the playoffs and went further than expected 3. The team has a pretty solid core of young field players 4. The pitching staff has upside 5. Chaim Bloom has done a good job...

    When Do You Want to See Chris Sale Pitch Again?

    I don’t think Cora can use him in any high leverage, multi inning situations at this point. I‘d be OK with him as a face one lefty batter option if the allowable situation arose, but that’s about it.

    CFB 2021 Week 7: Cats and Dawgs

    The heat has got to be getting turned up on Dino B. His results at ‘Cuse haven’t been very good. Mediocre/poor recruiting coupled with some questionable coaching decisions can’t be pleasing the alumni.

    Does Baseball Rule 5.05(a)(8) Need to be Changed?

    Leave the rule alone. Take the cannolis.

    What are your thoughts on the Monaco and DiNardo pairing on NESN?

    I find Monaco pretty bland. Replacement level announcer.

    Cam Newton signs with Carolina

    High schools are paying athletes now? That is a big problem, especially if they are public schools funded from taxpayer base. I’d like to see some examples.

    Cam Newton signs with Carolina

    Cam’s dad is awesome all right. The same guy who (allegedly) shopped his son around the SEC when he was kicked out of Florida for the laptop incident. Apparently Auburn ponied up the most.

    Sam “Bam” Cunningham passes away

    I recall a story about Sam Bam and Freddie Lynn. Apparently they were both at USC together and playing football. Lynn was playing both football and baseball. Lynn’s baseball skills were well-known. After a practice where Lynn, playing safety, had taken on Sam Bam 1:1 and gotten obliterated...

    Worcester Red Sox unveil a second mascot: a dog named Woofster

    Crowds have been good. Lots of families, lots of LL teams, and some of the college beer drinking kids. I imagine the ownership is pretty happy with Year 1.
