    Pats Draft Rd.1/15: QB Mac McCorkle Jones

    All the top golfers look more like body builders and not like John Daly these days... Even the women are jacked.

    Benintendi to Royals for Franchy Cordero, Mets RHP prospect Josh Winckowski, and 3 PTBNLs

    Wow, I didn't realize that the Sox got Franchy and 4 other prospects... Somehow I thought it was only 3 PTBNL, the pitching prospect got lost in my mind. The Sox got an absolute haul for an expensive gamble like Benintendi.

    Pats Draft Rd.1/15: QB Mac McCorkle Jones

    Hell yeah, you or I could have thrown some touchdowns for Alabama this year, and they call me Tim Tebot because I can't throw.

    Pats Draft Rd.1/15: QB Mac McCorkle Jones

    Based on that highlight package, if the Patriots get a bunch of receivers five yards behind the defense all season long, they just drafted the guy who can hit them. I'm not convinced, but it sounds like a lot of posters are excited!

    Garrett Richards' simplified delivery

    Garrett Richards with a great start today. Some of the pitches he threw the Mets today were amazing. If he has turned some type of corner, corralling his spin rate or finally repeating his delivery, the depth of the staff just got a lot better. What went right with Richards tonight? Is it...

    Maybe the Red Sox are good?

    The Sox are now second to only the Dodgers in run differential. Wow what a hot streak they are on. Even if you back out luck, they are playing very well.

    Rafael Devers- Thoughts heading into 2021

    One thing I think has to come into the calculation is Devers' newfound commitment to fitness. I was shocked at how much weight he lost in the off-season, his body totally transformed. If Devers keeps the weight off, that could have serious ramifications on both his ability to stay healthy and...

    Bullpen '21

    You need luck to keep a win streak going sometimes. I wonder if it's coincidence that we have cornered the market on guys with good stuff that happen to be wild? It's better to have a walk/strikeout pitcher than a high contact guy who relies on his defence, maybe? Still, it's easy to be more...

    Spring Training 2021

    Well, if he slugs half that well in the regular season, he might be the best bargain in baseball. Let him break the k records if he can!

    Spring Training 2021

    Fair enough... Anecdotally, it feels like it always means an extended period of poor performance followed by a long recovery after surgery. It's often been said every major league pitcher has some degree of arm injury, the movement just ours enormous stress on the arm and shoulder. If you can...

    Great, so he'll be out for the year, then have the surgery and lose next year as well? Why do they ever wait, it only delays the inevitable.
