    Actual runs aren't park adjusted? Also, luck.

    Red Sox in season discussion

    Sorry, I was using your post to address an idea that seems prevalent here, namely that if Duran is coming up, it will be at the expense of JBJ’s playing time, because he’s been terrible. People don’t seem to be locking in the idea that Kike and his parade of pop ups have been worse. So...

    JBJ currently has a wOBA 30 points higher than Kike. Why should JBJ be the one to surrender playing time?

    Garrett Whitlock

    So much of the discussion other threads come down to Whitlock returning to the 'pen or staying in the rotation for '22. Where does SoSH think he belongs now? The argument for him returning to the 'pen assumes his innings will still be highly managed, but that he will take up the same role as...

    Or there could be a long, documented history of “the Coors effect” including Rockies’ players suffering offensive hangovers when they go on the road and facing pitching with normal break and movement at lower altitudes, so that their road splits exaggerate towards the negative just as their home...

    Day Game 2022

    Nope, streaming only - my TV is in a part of my apartment building with no reception (bad cell service there as well). I don’t watch any over air TV, so never bothered to check into an antenna… As MLB goes to to an amalgam of different services, it seems like a good idea to keep the details of...

    Jarren Duran: Improving in His Second Shot

    With how many more pop ups (coming in at the end I saw one in the late innings)? Somewhere in this miasma someone posted his pop up rate, which is astronomical, and indicates that he really needs to work on his swing.

    BOS offered Bogaerts 1/30 additional not to opt out (Heyman report)

    The QO being in play will be entirely dependent on if an international draft is agreed to by a deadline set for sometime this summer. I think that deadline is before the trade deadline.

    I think we also have to consider that there are likely rules changes coming down the pike to incentivize starting pitching and stopping the trend of bullpen games.

    Red Sox ‘22 offense: offensively offensive

    If you want another example, go look at Jose Bautista. He didn’t break out until he was 29. The bottom line is that there are going to be outliers on the development curve, and sometimes guys put it together outside of the trajectories that have been mapped for them. Dalbec has shown flashes of...

    2022 COVID Impacts on the Team.

    Except that players who can't play because they can't get into Canada literally do go on the restricted list. Does anyone know if the Sox have chosen to award service time while the player is on the restricted list, my understanding is that is up to the team? The question is can Houk continue...

    Red Sox in season discussion

    It was remarked on heavily over the offseason that C is a point of concern for almost every team. The Sox almost landed Jacob Stallings before the lockout, so it's not like they weren't looking to improve on the position (he's hitting for a 49 OPS+ now, compared to Vazquez's 58... and is a year...
