    Did anyone pick up Sanu yet?

    JBJ in 2021

    Never have been a big fan. I’ve been looking for the Sox to move Bradley for a couple of seasons. Top-tier defensive CF certainly. But those are not a rare breed. Streaky hitter with average baserunning. Always is hitting in bottom half/third of the order. And he’s expensive and looking to get...

    Let's talk about this ballclub.

    I understand your point. But, man, that sure seems to be the wrong way to run a professional baseball club. At least if winning is the actual goal.

    Let's talk about this ballclub.

    Bingo. This is a baseball club that needs to bulk up their farm system. Bradley is a highly-paid golden glove center fielder with a very average bat. He’s not going to get any cheaper. The team (apparently) has a replacement in waiting. The fact he visibly stands up for a social issue shouldn’t...

    8/25 - @ Lightning (Game 2). Let's win another game.

    Chara seems to have aged 2 years since March. He looks very slow.

    8/25 - @ Lightning (Game 2). Let's win another game.

    Yes. All praise be to national broadcasts. Brickley is very good. Williams' act has been stale for a few years now. Time to make a change there.

    Worst Team Ever?

    I can’t recall a worse Sox team.

    Let's talk about this ballclub.

    Being a hard-core Sox fan, I’ll always have some interest in them and will watch them. How often and how much certainly depends on their competitiveness. Over the long run for me, they’ve been good more than bad. For 2020, bring up as many kids as you can. Let them play.

    Let's talk about this ballclub.

    Wow. I sure hope the young players on this team don’t have that attitude. If they do, the Sox are in serious trouble For the foreseeable future.

    Let's talk about this ballclub.

    MLB draft choices, even the top ones, are a crap shoot. This has been outlined many times here and examples are plentiful. This isn’t the NBA.

    Christian Vazquez: What do we have here?

    I was solidly in the Swihart camp. Still am disappointed with how he was handled. Vazquez sure has made himself a better hitter.

    2020 Hiatus News, Rumors, Trades

    I’m not in the camp that the Betts trade was purely for cap considerations. The Sox are not the only team to have cut minor leaguers or have some sort of management shakeup. But the franchise does have some significant standing that can influence players. I guess we’ll just have to wait and...

    2020 Hiatus News, Rumors, Trades

    Looks like the Sox have signed about the same number of them as KC. In terms of quality who knows. But I’ll go with Bloom’s track record there.

    Felger and Mazz - Creating False Naratives one day at a time

    I don’t think this is the point. Of course there would be other teams willing to sign a quality pitcher. The issues are: 1. Here’s a millionaire complaining about making more millions by playing a sport when many, many people in this country are suffering severe financial hardship 2. This...

    RD5 #13/#159: K Justin Rohrwasser, Marshall

    I need some more information before sending him to the chair. If the team conducted due diligence on the guy, let’s hear their summary and conclusion. Right-wing gun nut. OK. There are likely lots of them already in the league and, perhaps, even on this team. Racist? That’s an issue...

    Remembering May 10, 1970

    Great note - invoked some wonderful memories. I was a high school junior at a school in Braintree. Several of us went to the AD, who was also the baseball coach, and asked if we could go to the parade. He said we could so long as we were back in time for practice. We piled into a car and made...

    2020 Bucs: TB12 in TB20 - How Far Do They Go?

    I don’t think BB is the kind of coach who would even consider “tanking” on a season.

    How Do We Feel About Matthew Slater Re-signing?

    Solid signing. His locker room presence/leadership will be important in dealing with the Brady departure. If that happens of course ........
