    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    We'd all rather be watching Betts on the Sox in 2020 and most want the Sox to spend more in 2020. But let's assume the Sox will do the best deal to shed payroll. For those saying this is a bad deal and hoping the trade falls through: what's your specific proposal? Option A: Dodgers/Twins deal...

    Ranking Cheating in Baseball

    I don't understand having betting as the least offence if this is also true. Betting on your own team to win can be as damaging to the integrity of the game, given that you are betting more or less (or nothing) on any given night. The pitching changes a manager makes are the most important...

    2019 Playoff Seeding and Home Field Advantage Watch

    Re Texans: If the Pats lose to the Bills, the Texans have a shot at the bye regardless of the KC-CHI result in week 16. So if the Bills win this weekend, the Texans will be full throttle in week 17 even though odds for the bye would be poor (Jets, Miami and possibly Chargers would have to win.)...

    Drew vs Tom vs Time

    Bumping this thread with a bit of forecasting. Passing TDs: TB12 is at 530 Brees is at 525 If healthy, both will pass Manning's 539 this year, probably in the next ~5 games. Should be interesting to see who does it first. Brady's about 2500 yards (2nd all time) behind Brees (1st) in pass yards.

    I've never met you, and I don't post much, but... He has always been one of my favorite people here. His wit and point of view came through clearer than most. We'll miss him.

    2019 MLB Draft - Red Sox tracker

    I ran a simulation on my strat-o-matic on this and the chances of people not knowing about this are 1 in 2,347,421. When we back out the bad games and cherry pick the good ones, we then have to do it for the comparison set. Even among AA Red Sox, not to mention the rest of AA, a 3.7 BB9 when...

    RIP Bill Buckner

    Excactly this. And we'll never know, but... I'll always believe that Stanley wouldn't have beaten Mookie to first, and even if he had we were done anyway. You can listen to Eddie Andleman's call-in show after Game 6 on Youtube - Buckner wasn't even the main topic that very night. The error was...

    Lineup in NL Park for WS

    I think against Rich Hill you have to go with something like this: Betts Benintendi Pearce JD Bogaerts Nunez Kinsler Vazquez Porcello You could see a double switch (at catcher or Holt for Kinsler) or a straight up pinch hit depending on the situation and match-up. Cora has said he likes...

    Mike'd Up: The Mike Francesa Show

    Says the Yankees should trade Stanton, but thinks Dodgers are the only possible trade partner. Really, really wants Daniel Murphy. "Perfect fit for this team... even though he's just a first baseman/DH at this point."

    ALDS vs. MFY—Buckle Up

    Just like Game 7 2004 at the old Toilet. I hope they never learn.

    Celebrating What Is

    Brady and the Pats have had 4th quarter drives that either tied the game or gave them the lead in 7 of 8 Super Bowls.
