    Lou Merloni: Mookie asking price is 12 years, $420 million.

    I'm leaning towards thinking the Sox trade him in July when there will presumably be a bidding war among several contending teams willing to trade an overall Top 15 prospect for a (significant) rental.

    Hall of Fame Ballot: 2019 Induction

    I realize this sounds a bit cliché but... At no time watching either Baines or Smith did I ever think "That guy's a HoFer." No sir.

    Red Sox acquire Fernando Abad

    I think they should use him in a low leverage situation in his first appearance, just to get his feet wet.

    Mass Firings At The NY Daily News

    Thanks, Jon.  I don't recall what I had but judging by Snoop's reaction, it was inappropriate.  Sorry 'bout that.

    Mass Firings At The NY Daily News

    Mike Lupica, the face of the News' sports section for decades, is out.  So is Sports Editor Teri Thompson.  Bill Madden.  Filip Bondy.  Hank Gola.   The paper has reportedly been hemorrhaging money and owner Mort Zuckerman couldn't find a buyer after exploring a deal this year.  So today he...

    All A-Rod talk here

    Here's what I'd love to see this weekend...   Sox cruising along tonight with a 7-1 lead in the top of the 8th.  A-Rod hits a solo shot.  The Sox stop the game and present A-Rod with a plaque commemorating the occasion of tying Mays, including a video compilation of his big HRs.  At the shops...

    Mike'd Up: The Mike Francesa Show

    It's gotta be killing Mike that FS1 has auto racing on now and thus can't carry his NFL Draft analysis.  (I don't get FS2, so if it's on there, I wouldn't know.)

    Mike'd Up: The Mike Francesa Show

      Ah...you're giving FF way too much credit.  I'm 95% certain he was simply referring to 2015.  And I highly doubt he knew how much longer Kimbrel's contract had left.  He was just throwing out hyperbole and Gammons didn't challenge it.  Of course, if a caller made a similar claim, Mike the...
