    Who is the 2017 Red Sox MVP?

    Anyone else noticed the Vazquez has gotten his OPS up to almost 750? Combined with his defensive chops, that makes him a pretty damned valuable player. I wouldn't rate him #1, but top 5? I think so.

    Kyrie Irving traded to Celtics for IT, Crowder, Zizic, BKN 1st, 2020 2nd

    He'd have to, wouldn't he? That said, if they trade Kyrie and IT can't play, you'd have to think he'd want out. As would Love. In fact, it might be a best case scenario for LeBron, PR-wise. He doesn't have to leave Cleveland again, instead he gets traded away to jumpstart a rebuilt...

    Kyrie Irving traded to Celtics for IT, Crowder, Zizic, BKN 1st, 2020 2nd

    The Nets finished the year going 11-12 in their last 23 games, once came back from injury. There's reason to believe the Nets will improve in a weak East while the Lakers fall back.

    Devers called up to Majors

    It's absolutely true that some people have a great first step or two without having the highest top speed and this definitely makes a difference in some circumstances.

    Devers called up to Majors

    Please no more Pandas at third base. Red or otherwise. One was enough.

    Rob Bradford on the proliferation of home runs

    I was just reading on fangraphs (article on Justin Bour: ) that the seams on the ball seem to be lower this year, leading to less drag and thus more distance with the same EV. Interesting.

    Who's on Third? I don't know

    Indeed. Stats don't say much with small sample sizes, but often you can see pretty quickly if someone is looking overmatched. I don't get a chance to see many games.

    Time for Clemency - Is Roger overdue?

    He stays in the jerkhouse. Not just for baseball reason, but because of that whole Mindy McCready affair. Supposedly it started when she was 15... and she ended up committing suicide after a long battle with drugs and depression.

    Who's on Third? I don't know

    How is Lin looking at the plate? Could he slide to 3rd when Pedroia comes back?

    The Plan For the #1, er, #3 Overall Pick?

    ... why is my intuition saying "Anthony Davis"?

    Fast forward to legitimate title contention...

    ... what about a sign and trade for CP3?

    Eastern Conference Finals

    There almost has to be a connection with the MVP snub? Maybe he dialed it back for a game to make a point? If that's what he's doing, we might be in for s how in Game 4... although you'd have to think his teammates would be annoyed by that behavior (unless they were on-board beforehand).

    Eastern Conference Finals

    I doubt LeBron will score 11 pts in a playoff game twice in one series. Something weird was going on.

    Chris Sale to Boston for Moncada, Kopech, & 2 Prospects

    All I know is that was an utterly filthy pitch he used to K Mancini for this 10th K of the night. How far did that pitch break?

    Goose Eggs: fixing the save stat and reliever usage

    I'm not sure I necessarily like the way it deals with runner on base when entering the game. Getting out of a bases-loaded, no out situation without allowing a run is much much more valuable than coming in with the bases empty.
