    1975 World Series re-watch

    That's my point...and I'd rather pay hard cash than the cost of dead brain cells listening to all that shit..

    1975 World Series re-watch

    I have listened to this WS several times (on cassette tapes which indicates my vintage) It is ALWAYS striking how quickly the game gets played, and how clean the audio is. No adverts inserted. No plugs. No bullshit. Just the game, the crowd, and some occasional insight. It is a pleasure to dip...

    Chris Sale 2020 - TJ Bound and Down

    Apparently non-essential/Covid19 surgeries are still available at least in some parts of the country. This from today's ESPN (3/23) SAN DIEGO -- Hard-throwing Padres reliever Andres Munoz and minor leaguer Reggie Lawson underwent Tommy John surgery Friday. Both right-handers were injured...

    Chris Sale 2020 - TJ Bound and Down

    I would like to see someone from the Sox step up to the mic and tell the Nation what Chris's plan is for the timing of the surgery. Even if the date itself is unknown, it would be good for us fans to at least understand their thinking (team's and Sale's). Where have you gone Dr. Andrews....the...

    MLB Suspending ST Games and Regular Season Delayed At Least 2 Weeks

    If MLB is lucky and they get in a six week season then they can play it like the World Cup...with maybe a couple of Nippon League teams filling out the 32 team field...

    Sigh..my FBB draft is tonight. Ironic, no?

    Chris Sale 2020 - TJ Bound and Down

    I dunno. Isn't it just as likely that both parties felt that surgery was an option but not necessarily a clear cut one? They might both have laid out similar fork in the road scenarios and left the team and Sale to choose which road to take.

    Chris Sale 2020 - TJ Bound and Down

    My guess is that it's just not a clear decision. The team docs and Andrews saw partial tears or some level of inflammation that is typical wear-and-tear on a 30 year old MLB pitcher's elbow. He could pitch at X% effectiveness for Y period of time, ...perhaps. Surgery means no effectiveness for...

    Chris Sale 2020 - TJ Bound and Down

    That's the bummer in it for me. IF he had gone back to the mound last September and this had happened then, we'd be six months into his recovering in time to lead the rotation in '21.

    Reserving Judgment... But What Did the Sox Do and How Bad Will They Get Hit?

    Makes me think there is a lack of consensus among the powers that be with regard to the potential consequences of the report. They are asking multiple spin doctors to predict the backlashes that will come from dozens of organizational and individual parties. Lenience will yield wails of a fix...

    Sox have hired Jerry Narron as bench coach

    Let's hope we get to a point where this would really, really matter..

    2019-20 Offseason Discussion

    What? You're suggesting that winning games is the point here? I thought the point was to bitch and moan. Where did I go wrong..

    Our ownership group

    I dunno. It's like we're all teenagers sitting at the fully-laden dining room table in our parents' nice warm house eating their roast beef dinner and bitching about what a pain in the ass they are. While this may be true, there's a larger reality, isn't there?

    Thank you Brock Holt (signs with Brewers)

    Um...he signed for $3M and Holt was expected to make more? By just a lil bit but hey, every dollar counts when you're pinching pennies, right?
