    C's pick Aaron Nesmith #14 overall

    I know this is jumping to WAY too early of a judgment about Nesmith, but we might have been better off just keeping our three picks and selecting Bane, Pritchard, and Tillman. That would have been a home run of a draft.

    Red Sox acquire Adam Ottavino and RHP prospect Frank German from Yankees for PTBNL

    Apropos of nothing, "Frank German" is a beautifully redundant name

    Tatum out 10-14 Days per Covid Policy

    Indeed - Maxey shot an impressive 18/33 from the field, with ZERO free throw attempts. That has to be a record of some kind.

    Might as well start talking about 2021

    If the interest in Semien and Kim is real, I wonder if that means the club isn't all that high on Jeter Downs?

    I really hope Danny doesn't fall for the bait. Harden would set back everything the Celtics have been building for the last 3-4 years.

    Gritty Little White Guys #998

    I was just listening to Bill Simmons's latest "Book of Basketball" podcast, the one about Chris Webber. The entire narrative was about how C-Webb disappointed and underachieved relative to his amazing "tools" -- a lot of wishcasting about the kind of player he COULD have been, had he maximized...

    The Existential Extension Crisis - Will Giannis Stay in Milwaukee?

    This. In an era when superstars are falling all over themselves to pair up with other superstars, the best Milwaukee could muster was Khris Middleton? Also, maybe this is a bit controversial to say, but Milwaukee hasn't exactly been the best environment for African-American athletes, with at...

    2020 NBA Draft discussion

    This is weird to me, considering we could have easily drafted Matisse Thybulle last year, a player with a similar profile.

    NBA 20/21 season thread

    This is cruel, moving the team out of the Oracle Arena in Oakland (and leaving behind $40+M of unpaid bills) to trendier/richer San Francisco, then coming out with these jerseys as some kind of weird peace offering.

    David Price wins the World Series!

    Yikes, I should have thought twice about that title if this is the direction it'll go. No racial commentary was meant in the least. My thought was that this is the "Price WS" in the same vein as the Gonzalez, Crawford, and Beckett trade is affectionately known as the "Punto trade." I.e...

    David Price wins the World Series!

    Ok, maybe this isn't really for the Sox forum, but I guess the mods can (re)move it if so. Big congrats to Mookie, and Dave Roberts, and Joe Kelly, and Brusdar Graterol. They deserved it.

    The Ongoing Tales of World B. Flat

    More quotes from Kyrie: "I saw him at the Hall of Fame two years ago, gave him a big hug and now he's the head coach. And I think it's also going to change the way we see coaches. "I want somebody that's gonna understand that I am a human being first, I serve my community first, and then...

    2021 Draft

    It's interesting, isn't it, how a team will sometimes have one position that they rarely ever seem to get right in drafts? A parallel would be the Patriots and wide receiver -- in that example, their track record is so poor that it almost feels like they've given up on trying.
