    (When) Will the Season Start?

    12.5 miles from Flushing, New York, martial law has been imposed on New Rochelle. Nobody can get in or out. The Governor has sent in the New York National Guard to "contain" the area (with M-16's).

    (When) Will the Season Start?

    Both Massachusetts and New York State have declared states of emergency. We all see the number climbing in the news. Will the season start at all? Or will play go in with only television coverage?

    We should write the Commissioner and ask him what's taking so long.

    Thank you Brock Holt (signs with Brewers, now with Nats, got 1 AB at Fenway on 8/29)

    Purse strings over heart strings. Believe it would have been an injustice to Brock to sign him to a one year deal. If the Sox game him a 1 year deal and his season tanks or is injured, his free agent value in the subsequent year is shot to hell. The Brewer (better) deal is: 20:$2.5M...

    Reserving Judgment... But What Did the Sox Do and How Bad Will They Get Hit?

    Houston is far, far away, but MLB Headquarters, 245 Park Avenue, is right around the corner. Red Sox Nation will storm the Bastille. This ain't The Colt 45's expansion team. This is a cornerstone of the institution. Tread carefully Manfred.

    Nightengale: Alex Rodriguez now the favorite to buy the Mets

    I read the same thing. Heard his real estate portfolio brings in $25M a year and that was a few years ago. Jeter's got a boat, not a boat load, and a lot of limited partners who use him as the front man.

    Openers?

    Didn't the closer extend the usefulness of pitchers that would have been otherwise, put out to pasture (NL), e.g. Dennis Eckersley? Or didn't the closer create an otherwise mediocre, 2-pitch starter into a closing stud, e.g. Mariano Rivera? Won't the (re)adaptation of the opener open the door...
