    Baseball on Television

    I was in Korea at the time of this game, and got up early to go hiking. While eating breakfast I was following on the internet. My hike was delayed until the game ended.

    2019 Game Ball Thread: Wk. 5 at Washington

    I don't have a link, but early in the preseason my son told me he read that Michel worked on his pass receiving this off season. I'm hoping his receiving opportunities continue to increase.

    SB53: Pats vs. Rams Buildup

    In the surprise play department, I'll bring up Edelman passing. McVay has seen it first hand in college, so maybe the Rams will overprepare.

    "This is the first time I heard any of this stuff," said Bradley Jr

    I'd guess he calls Big Papi, "David".

    Rename the Red Sox AAA Team!

    The interweb tells me it's the Warriors. Worcester Warriors has alliteration going for it.

    MLB Playoff start times and its declining viewership

    It's not pitching changes, it's in-inning pitching changes. Limit that to once for the starter and one more. If you remove the starter between innings, you only get one. If you want/need to exceed that, the penalty is the next hitter and every base runner moves up one base.

    Best 2018 Red Sox postseason moments

    I'll add Mookie going deep after his 13 at bat hitless string. That was the moment I knew the Dodgers were toast. The Martinez and Pearce homers were confirmatory.

    OK other then 2004 what was the sweetest pennant?

    This is like choosing among Treehouse IPAs, they're all great. I loved the 75 team, the 86 ALCS was a thriller, the 04 ALCS was historic, the 07 ALCS another thriller, and the 18 AL playoffs cemented the greatness of the 108 win regular season. But Boston Strong wins for me, as bringing a city...

    ALCS 2018 - Houston Astros

    It sounds like a way too lengthy version of "Don't mess with Texas."

    ALCS 2018 - Houston Astros

    Not disagreeing, but using the home ballpark comment as a discussion point. The Red Sox were 51-31 away from Fenway. The Astors were 46-35 at home. Now I'm not saying that I'd rather the games be played in Houston, but I'll offer that there are about a dozen other factors more important to...

    If the 10th Player Award Still Existed, It Would Go To...

    Completely agree that calling Holt a former all-star was hyperbole. But the point stands that it showed he could be a solid player, as you say. Ryan Braiser had no such history, and though it doesn't compare to last night's cycle, Braiser also gets hypothetical points for telling Sanchez to get...

    This is the best Red Sox team...ever.

    My opinion is that before the sport was fully integrated, none of those teams can qualify for best ever because top tier talent wasn't allowed in the league. Although record shouldn't be the sole criteria, I think it's hard to argue that a team that finished 10+ games ahead of their competition...

    If the 10th Player Award Still Existed, It Would Go To...

    I recall Evan's speech after we won for the second year in a row. Paraphrasing ... Thank you, but maybe you should be expecting more from me. I think it's a tough call between Holt and Braiser. I think ERR makes a decent point regarding Holt as a former All Star, maybe we should have been...
