    RD2 #5/#37: S Kyle Dugger, Lenoir-Rhyne

    no one has ever heard of this guy and, of all the holes on the roster, this was not at the top of the list. So in that sense, the pick makes a lot of sense

    Bob Zupcic (and Other Bright Specks in the Firmament)

    I was at UMaine in the mid to late 1990s (took the scenic route), and in the summer of 97 (think it was 97) I went out to a Bangor Blue Ox game as I was working in Orono for the summer. The Blue Ox played in the Northeast League, which is now (I believe) the Can-Am league. And Zupcic was in the...

    Baseball on Television

    This is fantastic. Also ... Grich while rounding the bases on a 6th inning HR was a bit much.

    RIP: Ted Lepcio

    Hmmm Interesting. Yeah I knew he played there - I thought it was 49/50 but I’m seeing conflicting info as well.

    He played with the Augusta (Maine) Millionaires back in the day as well.

    2019 from this point on

    You go hard every damn day. Have to. The odds aren't great, but there is a lot of baseball left. If or when you are mathematically eliminated, you move on to 2020.

    MLB/MLBPA discussing '19/'20 rule changes: Universal DH/no sept callups/3 batter rule

    Pitch clocks. Intentional walks. No real issue. But I’m no fan of it tinkering with how the game is played between the lines, and if the game isn’t fast enough for some 20-something in LA then too bad. It’s a great game how it is.

    2018 Red Sox World Champions Parade thread

    Q: coming down from Maine for parade with two kids in tow. Need to be back for the trick/treating. Im about 2 hours north of city. Obviously, Going to be a pretty quick trip. With that said, does anyone have any suggestions on where to go to see the parade to best maximize time etc? Thanks...

    Rebirth of a Sale, man

    No way the luxury is taken at the start of a series against the Yankees. If it's truly just a breather, you wait until the following week to do it.

    Rebirth of a Sale, man

    The "little bit more than I'm used to" part of his quote is ... very concerning.

    What's your most treasured baseball card of a Sox player?

    Ted Williams. 1951 Bowman. Card 165. My late grandmother got it for me at a yard sale, of all places, when I was 9.

    #83 pick--Derek Rivers EDGE Youngstown State

    Sidenote: His mother, Mary, is originally from Maine and graduated from Cony High in Augusta. So did an aunt and an uncle. In fact, his grandparents still live in Maine - in Newcastle I believe.

    NFL Sunday Ticket now available via PS3

    So I am on directv, have been since 2011, and we are currently out of contract. I called them yesterday and told them we were looking to make a switch to save $. I paid for Sunday Ticket last year and told them that while I was still interested in it, I had zero qualms with not having it and...

    #NoBradyNoBanner - Yay or Nay?

    Apologies if this addressed elsewhere, but didn't the Pats jack up prices for the opener with the expectation/anticipation there would be a grand ol ceremony? Might be tough to pull the plug on those festivities if that's the case ...

    The future at 3rd

    Listened to the interview. Nothing earth-shattering. He does seem to think Pablo is good as gone. Also throws out there that he *thinks* Pablo may still be feeling disrespected after talks in spring broke down. He's quick to point out he is not a beat guy, he's not in locker room etc but he...

    Lucky-Levine Love Fest

    Lucchino just can't help himself. And the more he comments on the Yankees and how they do business the more it's obvious they are still in his head. And that makes Levine's response all the more hilarious. The banter is good theater, especially as baseball is about to ramp up, but as always...

    College Hockey Thread

    Yes, although the teams right around Maine in HE all have games in hand, with some being made up this weekend. I'm heading up to the Alfond to see them this weekend so a letdown would suck on several levels.

    College Hockey Thread

    Absolutely huge weekend sweep for Maine. Beating BU in its own barn is awesomeness to begin with, but back to back nights? Wow. Keep. It. Rolling.

    Mut and Merloni

    I can't stand listening to Mut. I never really had much of an opinion on him until listening to this show. Now, I just can't listen to him. Merloni is decent, but I actually think he's better in more of an ancillary role. Mut just doesn't seem to bring anything new or fresh to the show. I don't...
