    5/5--hosting the Tigers again

    Loses it into the bullpen!

    5/5--hosting the Tigers again

    Which is why they need to score this inning.

    5/5--hosting the Tigers again

    Time to string together a couple hits. Now is probably the time to do it.

    Radio crew liked that last play by Arroyo.

    Maybe the Red Sox are good?

    I heard one of the announcers say the Red Sox won 2/3rds (not positive of that number) of their games last year when their starter pitched 5 innings. That just didn't happen very often. Even with some poor performances, the Sox offense was pretty good last year (in AL, top 3 OPS, top 6 HRs...

    4/13- 2:10 PM ET @ MIN: Neither snow nor rain...

    Good win. Eovaldi v. Maeda then ERod v. Berrios tomorrow.

    4/7- 1:10 PM ET vs TB: We're Playing on YouTube? We Most Definitely Are.

    I've always felt that the easiest improvement MLB could make to the game experience would be a massive upgrade in announcers and graphics, camera angles, presentation, etc. Lots of experimentation and fan feedback. And it wouldn't even be that expensive.

    04/01/21 - Game 1 of the 2021 Season...

    Or maybe start the first two weeks of the season with games scheduled at the warm weather parks/domes?

    Thank You, Jackie Bradley Jr.

    Fortunately, I convinced him to wait and see if Verdugo can match last year's numbers over a whole season and got him a spot on the Jarren Duran hype train, so, he's sticking around for a while at least.

    Red Sox to have fans at Fenway to start 2021

    Seems relevant to the scheduling conversation.

    Red Sox to have fans at Fenway to start 2021

    As an example, in 2019, the Twins opened the season against Cleveland and drew roughly 69,000 fans over three games (with opening day outdrawing games 2 and 3 combined). A month later, they played three games against Baltimore and drew roughly 66,000 fans (more evenly spread among the three...

    Red Sox to have fans at Fenway to start 2021

    There are 15 stadiums that are either in warmer areas or have a roof: Seattle, Oakland, SF, Dodgers, Angels, Padres, Arizona, Texas, Houston, Tampa, Miami, Atlanta, Milwaukee, Toronto, and either Washington, Baltimore, Cincinnati, St. Louis, or KC. Conveniently, those 15 teams are split evenly...

    Thank You, Jackie Bradley Jr.

    My youngest son picked up on the fact that announcers typically used JBJ's full name when talking about him during games. So, he asked "what is Jackie-Bradley-Jrs last name?" I explained that his last name was Bradley and that he used Jr. since his dad has the same name. Puzzled, he asked "so...

    Red Sox to have fans at Fenway to start 2021

    I suspect that rationale is the reason, but, it seems like it could be dealt with by stacking the first 2ish weeks of the season in warm cities/domes, then the next 2ish weeks farther north, then all teams are on equal footing for the remainder of the season. I guess one factor would be...
