    Red Sox in season discussion

    Why can't you see them sending him down? He's clearly not quite ready for primetime and could use a month out of the spotlight to work on whatever he's learned with the big club.

    Red Sox Trade Deadline 2022

    He could absolutely do that by trading Eovaldi and JD in the next hour. That might get us to suck enough to get a top ten pick.

    Sox acquire Eric Hosmer

    Yeah, I don't get the negativity around the trade. Our first base situation sucked. It's now better with a guy under control for three years who can easily be jettisoned when Casas is deemed ready. It's exactly the kind of move you'd want to make in this situation.

    Astros acquire Christian Vázquez for Enmanuel Valdez and Wilyer Abreu.

    Many years ago I was in a sim league where all the teams were based on the historical rosters of a team. I had the Red Sox, of course, and since Fisk played more for Chicago than us, the Chicago team got him. And....there wasn't much left. That was pre-Varitek so you want to tell me Vazquez is...

    Not directly answering the questions, but rumors can come from the Mets.

    Good thing the off season doesn't count in the standings.

    Does this mean Christian Arroyo is going to play right field? 'Cause that seems, you know, dubious.

    How Much Do You Hate the Shift Ban?

    I'm with you. It seems like the strategists have determined that whatever increase in obp you'd get by bunting doesn't make up for the loss in power. Seems messed up to me, but I'm not the math geek to figure that out.

    We're gonna need a bigger bandwagon.

    MLB and MLBPA have a deal

    Instead of giving the top picks to the teams with the worst record, they could give the top draft picks to the teams closest to .500. It eliminates the incentive to be bad and replaces it with an incentive to be mediocre, and mediocre teams aren't that far from the playoffs. It decreases the...

    MLB and MLBPA have a deal

    So this is what multiple orgasms feels like. It sounds to me like the owners get more of what they wanted than the players, but I don't really care, I just want to watch baseball. Universal DH is cool. Been wanting that for a couple decades. 12 teams in the playoffs? So three wild card teams...

    The Mainboard MLB Lockout Thread

    I don't have the time or energy to dig into the details of this shit because no matter who talks, I get mad. Can anyone convince me the season is going to start on time?

    CBA expires Dec. 2-- how will this affect the Red Sox?

    I don't think the draft is an accurate enough measure of talent to make that a thing, but it would be relatively easy to buy your way into being a mediocre team.
