    Are they done moving salary?

    This is where I'm at. They made the move they had to. From here forward, any move can be made with an eye to improving the team, and nothing more than that. They have a few needs before the season, for which they'll find affordable solutions. They can shed salary and aim for draft picks if...

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    After reading through a lot of good posts, I want to second this one. There is no reason to disbelieve that Henry et al have the best interests of the club at heart. They have a long track record of success, and deserve our faith. He spends money, and likely would have given Mookie a large chunk...

    Emotional Rescue: or How I Learned to Love the Sox After They Traded Mookie

    Though I consider puns, not sarcasm, the lowest form of humor, nonetheless I must say, well done sir.

    Sox talking Mookie trade with Dodgers, Padres - News & Discussion

    I'm down with JBJ. I love Mookie Betts, but I love the Red Sox more. This isn't about John Henry's money but about the competitive disadvantage they are facing. I'm glad they are doing due diligence and I will hope for the best.

    2019-20 Championship- Now with 100% less Pig.

    Watching Leeds this morning, and they are behind a goal to QPR that would've been disallowed by VAR had it been in place. Regardless, it's more of the same. Good possession, nice overlapping runs, and absolutely no end product. Everyone knows they need a striker (or two) but the club can't get...

    2019-20 Championship- Now with 100% less Pig.

    It wouldn't be football if they treated everybody the same way each time. Thanks for the 2 cents.

    2019-20 Championship- Now with 100% less Pig.

    DH, what's up with Chansiri? First, suspected impropriety with the purchase of Hillsborough, now injecting $ to the team via sponsors that aren't active companies. You guys are looking more and more like (old) Leeds all the time. Still, too much investment is always preferable to not enough.

    Red Sox sign Martin Perez

    I like the mystery of it all. In order to get a good team under budget, he has to shop the bargain bin, yet still find value, which can be production, or return in trade. I'm hopeful Bloom is finding skill where we can't see it. Some will make good, some will fail. What will be the sum of it?

    VAR What is it good for?

    http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/50681751 Nice quotes from plain-speaking Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder. You can say what you will about how his goalie or team stopped playing upon seeing the linesman's flag last night, but he is direct in speaking about how this new technology is...

    They should just run Goff up the middle for the rest of the game.
