    Red Sox to have fans at Fenway to start 2021

    This is what Premier League football games looked like in England when they allowed fans back:

    Red Sox sign RHP Hirokazu Sawamura, 2 yr/$2.4M

    He's also got a little funk in his delivery. I don't know if all the pitchers in Japan have more unique windups, if it's just the pitchers the Sox get (Nomo, Okajima, Koji), or just the ones I remember because they stood out. But if Okajima was the Bootsy Collins of funky deliveries, this guy...

    Benintendi to Royals for Franchy Cordero, Mets RHP prospect Josh Winckowski, and 3 PTBNLs

    I was looking for a current Sox prospect to compare him to. Fangraphs ranks all of the prospects a team has that are over a 35 future value. The Blue Jays had 39 of those, and Winckowski was in the honorable mention section meaning he was below that level. The Sox had 47 players at or above...

    Benintendi to Royals for Franchy Cordero, Mets RHP prospect Josh Winckowski, and 3 PTBNLs

    His "not very good" 2019 was still worth 2 fWAR, which is 2-3x what Cordero's career has been worth. He was still a quality major league starter. (That said, if people keep posting videos of him hitting bombs, I could fall irrationally in love the guy the same way I did Wily Mo. I'm a sucker...

    Benintendi to Royals for Franchy Cordero, Mets RHP prospect Josh Winckowski, and 3 PTBNLs

    They also have Benintendi being a full time player (vs Cordero platooning) and putting up almost twice as much WAR. Because Beni might not be good at hitting lefties, but Cordero is abysmal at it. Also, Beni has a career to project those numbers from, whereas Cordero has barely played in the...

    Benintendi to Royals for Franchy Cordero, Mets RHP prospect Josh Winckowski, and 3 PTBNLs

    I also like judging trades in the same offseason they occur in. Maybe the players are crap, but maybe we should see them in the lineup or not being able to make the lineup before saying that. Right now this doesn't make all that much sense to me either, but there seems to be more pieces involved.

    Benintendi to Royals for Franchy Cordero, Mets RHP prospect Josh Winckowski, and 3 PTBNLs

    Yet at the same age Benintendi has put up 8.5 fWAR to Cordero's 0.7. So one is an established quality MLB player and the other is an oft injured prospect on the edge of being a never-been.

    Red Sox sign RHP Hirokazu Sawamura, 2 yr/$2.4M

    Somewhere Koji Uehara is high-fiving a whole bunch of people. Not because of this move, just because he loves doing that.

    Toucher and Rich --- Everyone Else Has Some Work To Do

    You also have to remember that he isn't a guy who wanted to be a sports reporter or commentator his whole life. He came up as a rock morning show guy and was basically forced into being a sports talk show host in the Boston market in the middle of a historically successful period. I think he...

    Toucher and Rich --- Everyone Else Has Some Work To Do

    I hate to break this to you then, but this may not be the show for you.

    The Ringer

    That confirms Cap kisses, not fucks. He also rejected the idea of a date with Lillian from accounting because he wasn't ready for a girl with a lip piercing. I think he was working his confidence up to modern dating and eventually sex. Then he ended up a war criminal.

    The Ringer

    I'm going to guess MCU Cap didn't get laid until retirement. He went from a never been kissed geek to always on the run in the war, then frozen for a few decades and hopelessly out of modern culture when he woke up, to then being in hiding, to living in a depressing post-blip world. I think the...

    He's had an injury of some sort, which is why he wasn't on the bench. Hope he gets well real soon.

    Wow. Runar Runnarson actually playing in the premier league. This is what Arsenal fans have been dreading. Being down to 9 men makes it even worse. What a crazy set of turns in a game they started off dominating.

    Arsenal 20-21: Artetenal and/or Kia Joorabchian Futebol Clube

    Mustafi has officially moved on to Schalke: https://www.arsenal.com/news/mustafi-joins-schalke And now it looks like Willock to Newcastle and AMN to West Brom on loan are both finalized. https://www.arsenal.com/news/joe-willock-joins-newcastle-united-loan...

    Arsenal 20-21: Artetenal and/or Kia Joorabchian Futebol Clube

    I'm very optimistic about the Odegaard move, and the business that they've done during this window. Like I've seen everyone say, he can give Smith-Rowe a rest at times and play together with him at times. It will be interesting to see how Arteta uses him. He's a very high ceiling player from...

    Red Sox sign Enrique Hernandez (2 years, 14 mil)

    I was under the impression it was Kee-kay as well.

    Arsenal 20-21: Artetenal and/or Kia Joorabchian Futebol Clube

    If the Odegaard loan comes true, that's two very smart moves. I also figured the stories connecting him to Arsenal were mostly smoke to get big club clicks.
