    Don't take me out to the ballgame - Mets and Red Sox 07/29

    Yeah, and Eovaldi isn't at top velocity today so I guess I spoke too soon.

    Don't take me out to the ballgame - Mets and Red Sox 07/29

    I wonder what the average fastball velocity record is for combined starting pitchers in a game?

    Don't take me out to the ballgame - Mets and Red Sox 07/29

    All I have are negative thoughts.

    What if They Gave a Ballgame and Nobody Came?

    Two years after the "perfect" season and they are literally unwatchable. In fairness, they are a decent rotation away from being decent, or 3-4 arms, but still.

    What if They Gave a Ballgame and Nobody Came?

    Was that Kurkjian telling me that I won't appreciate Verdugo if he's anything less than Mookie? Because boy is that a shit take. How stupid does he think Sox fans are?

    What if They Gave a Ballgame and Nobody Came?

    the only consolation I get from watching this team is knowing that even with Mookie they'd be unwatchable. Blue Jays are a problem already.

    COVID-19 and the Red Sox

    Damn, if the Sox had lost on Friday they'd have the #1 pick in the 2021 draft locked down.

    Do you know what the distance is? (yes, I have the internet...)

    Turns out we can hit soft-tossing lefties

    I'm gonna guess it just feels that way because we're all watching and wishing we could go up and hit off him.

    Rem-Dawg in mid-season form with the hard "-er" on Peraza. Iglesias is their #3 hitter?

    Let’s predict the 2020 Red Sox record

    Wow Sox could end up with a decent draft slot and playoffs!

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

    I know. I am just saying that there is nothing stopping his next few years from being better. Whatever. I get your point, it's a risky investment at some point in the deal. I'd say he's worth it for 4-5 years and after that it gets harder to accept (although who knows what that salary will mean...

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

    OK but that's in three years. You're saying he's declining now. Did you mean that he will eventually decline? Of course, everyone does.

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

    I don't agree with this assessment of his defense. I don't think this is generally accepted. At most you can say that his peak D stats have gone down, but it's quite a stretch to just assume they won't go back up at his age. He's not an oft-injured 32-year-old.

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

    So do I have to post videos of him stealing second and third (because the third baseman came over to 2B? Or videos of his defense and throwing arm? Or pitching stats with him in RF?

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

    75% of his value is o-WAR. Also he's 27, so that side of his game might still yet improve.
