    Red Sox pitching carousel thread (our pitching is historically bad)

    But there's no way they lose more than 60 games this season. And in every previous season where they didn't lose more than 60 games they won 100 games.

    Rosenthal: Mookie and LAD in agreement: 12/$365

    Mookie's already lost around half his defensive value. Back circa 2016, his defense was otherworldly, according to every system. Last year it was better than average but only 2nd or third among right fielders in the AL.

    July/August game thread

    So, will having no fans diminish home field advantage? If you don't have 35,000 people at Fenway cheering the Sox on, do the Sox players play quite as well? If there aren't 35,000 people at Fenway cheering against visiting teams, do they play a little better? If there aren't 35,000 people at...

    If he actually partied with Epstein, everyone in that area should be glad their kids didn't get onto the property.

    2020 Pats: General/Non-QB Off-Season Discussion

    How do you feel about this if you're Cam Newton? At the same time as they were telling him they only have $1 million to pay him they were probably lining up these settlements, knowing they'd have several million more available soon.

    Hey, come on Lamar Jackson! Are you gonna let yourself be disrespected by being so underpaid compared to Mahomes? Who was the MVP?

    Red Sox Schedule

    If they had solved the problem of the games being too long it wouldn't be as big a deal to move the starting time back a half hour. I guess they still want to discourage as many little kids as possible from watching games.

    2020 Pats: Welcome to Camelot

    Even if they're not talking to Flo any more, the Pats guys Flo brings in would tell him, "Bill really likes Stid!".

    2020 Hiatus News, Rumors, Trades

    Ouch. You're right. So, to avoid paying $5.9 million right away they agreed to pay $29.75 million, albeit over an extended period. How did Madoff ever fool them?!

    Considering inflation, did he really sucker them that badly in that deal?

    Jesus, the next time Goodell's in New England overnight I hope he gets treated like the Hotel reviewer in Ocean's Thirteen.

    2020 Pats: Welcome to Camelot

    What if he's pretty good but only slightly better than Stidham and rather than have the kid go through a year of growing pains that pays off down the road they're playing a guy they only control for this year?

    2020 Pats: General/Non-QB Off-Season Discussion

    Very interesting article. I would guess that the key is more how he works with McDaniels.

    Crowds? The Rays aren't poorly supported and unwanted. They're uniquely positioned to adhere to social distancing guidelines!

    2020 MLB Draft Thread

    I didn't realize the bolded part. But as for cheap, the bonus money is limited now. It's peanuts. Even for the Rays.

    2020 MLB Draft Thread

    You would think that, with other teams not able to outbid them and with the Rays being able to point to their history of developing kids and the fact that they'll never be blocked by a high priced free agent acquisition that the Rays would have been able to do okay. Zero signings? Really?
