    Chris Sale 2020 - TJ Bound and Down

    Just to scratch my itch?

    Choose your Red Sox house

    Um...yes, that is exactly what I was referring to. I got the timeline wrong though that has little bearing on my opinion on the matter. And I'm struggling to understand why an ambush needs more than one event to be described as an ambush?

    Red Sox penalties for "Spygate"

    Exactly what I was trying to suggest in my above reply, but was too incoherent to make clear..

    Red Sox penalties for "Spygate"

    I'm concluding that the players who benefitted from Watkins illegal sleuthing would not necessarily have known that the benefit came as a result of its illegal nature? His role allowed him to help break down the opposing team's signs so getting info from him was a normal thing to do? Or am I...

    Except for that unfortunate ambush of Eck he pulled off a couple of years ago..

    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 2020: We're Playing, but We Can't Agree on Anything

    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...

    MLB 2020: We're Playing, but We Can't Agree on Anything

    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...
