    McAdam: Red Sox owners have met with Xander Bogaerts more than once in recent weeks to kickstart contract negotiations.

    Yeah, what is shocking? They didn't even make any concrete proposals, sounds like.

    Judge vs. Ohtani

    It's the same thing as when A-Rod won a MVP for a TEX team that was out of contention all year, it's cool if no one on a contending team has a MVP-caliber season but clearly that's not the case this season. What Ohtani did this season and so far in his career is truly remarkable, but the last...

    Judge vs. Ohtani

    Like, what is 'absolutely essential' to a 73-89 team? Without him, they would have won 65 games? 60 games? What's the famous Branch RIckey to Ralph Kiner quote? "Son, we can finish last without you."

    Judge vs. Ohtani

    To be clear here, I really don't care about the MVP or any awards, and I love Ohtani (I started the first thread for him here many years ago), but you could seriously make a legitimate argument that Ohtani was the least valuable player in baseball this year, in that he added many wins to a team...

    Judge’s March To 62 Homers

    Oh now I see there is already a firm $2M offer out there, I didn't realize that. So no fear of an auction coming up short, maybe he will auction it and just start the bidding at $2M, I did not realize it was that 'valuable'.

    It's funny that you and I were talking about this exact seeding possibility in maybe May here.

    Yeah, 3B is looking like Donaldson but for the love of Jah, move him down in the order already.

    Judge’s March To 62 Homers

    Also a money bro like that isn't going to auction that ball unless he actually badly needs the money, he doesn't want the world thinking he badly needs the money (just my educated guess obv). He will strike a deal of some kind with the Judge camp (who has 60 and 61) or keep it, that's my guess...

    Judge’s March To 62 Homers

    If you're already rich (as this guy seems to be), none of this matters. You keep it if you want to, sell if you want to, whatever.

    What does 2023 look like?

    But don't forget there are only 52 division games starting next year (13 per team), down from 76 (19 per).
