    5/6 Nate Vs. Tigers (1:10 Start)

    Renfroe also ran the Red Sox out of an inning and potentially a win against the White Sox, so at least he has that going for him.

    Favorite Patriots Newcomer (Draft Picks Included)

    I gave serious consideration to the unlisted Tre Nixon because if there is one thing I cannot stand in a Patriots newcomer, it is excessively lively footstrikes.

    5/4 - Hallelujah

    That would be the first thing Halak gloved cleanly all night.

    4/27 - Hall and Adam Oates

    The referees’ working theory is that the lightning exploded her.

    4/22 vs Mariners

    Or allow a multi-inning reliever like Andriese to pitch, well, multiple innings. The Dodgers and Padres can afford to play bullpen roulette. The Red Sox are far more likely to shoot themselves in the foot.

    4/22 vs Mariners

    If they play another 10 innings, perhaps I will be able to understand Bill Miller’s unique interpretation of the strike zone.

    4/22 - Come "Hall" or High Water

    Clearly disrupted the space-time continuum with his stick, causing Reider to flop across the blue line in the opposite direction. How the holy Hell do you make that call from a few feet away? I hesitate to ascribe to malice what can be explained by incompetence but that’s a LOT of incompetence.

    4/19 - Just start winning

    That Dalbec recovered from his walk rate cratering upon his initial, limited exposure to Double-A gives me hope that you are correct. But I have genuine concerns that an off-season of video review and increased (from 2020) advanced scouting leave major-league pitchers and defenses better...

    4/19 - Just start winning

    Then thankfully we can all look forward to Dalbec maintaining a ~.400 BABIP while positive regression simply waves away the same flaws and weaknesses that he has exhibited his entire professional career.

    4/19 - Just start winning

    The problem is that this already may be “normal” for Franchy, Renfroe, and particularly Dalbec.

    Nominations for best Boston area Play by Play and Color Commentators ALL TIME

    This is heresy. Tommy telling the audience that “We all know what the F. stands for” during a game officiated by Eddie F. Rush was the greatest moment in broadcasting since Marconi. Dave Goucher deserves mention among PBP broadcasters. Goucher was the best Bruins’ PBP broadcaster since Fred...

    4/16 - It's "Hall" good, man

    Ghislain Hebert reeks of fish sticks.

    The Red Sox will be wearing yellow and blue uniforms on Patriots' Day weekend

    It’s the Nike product’s first actual connection with the city— both are much too expensive to live in.

    The Red Sox will be wearing yellow and blue uniforms on Patriots' Day weekend

    It is bad enough that the Red Sox play like the UCLA JV team, now they have to look like them, too? if I want variants, I will attend a Rangers home game.

    April 4th vs. Orioles 1:10 pm: 160-2 is still possible

    But the Sox got German Potato Salad for just $8 million, so it was totally worth it.

    April 3--Sox vs.O's

    Franchy Cordero’s swing has more glaring holes than Polar Park. The two deserve each other.

    Is it time to talk about Coach Brad?

    While “we” are at it, “we” should try to move Joe Thornton to get some more grit in the lineup than a player that played an entire playoff series with torn rib cartilage.

    MLB Offseason 2020 News & Notes

    Kolarek went from the Dodgers to the A’s, primarily in exchange for Infielder Sheldon Neuse. Neuse provides insurance if the Dodgers do not re-sign Justin Turner but, at least as importantly as the Dodgers pare down to their 26-man roster, has two minor league options remaining.

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

    I hope that you are right but, even if he is fully recovered from myocarditis, it seems unlikely that Rodriguez would immediately be highly effective after missing an entire season.

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

    The Dodgers’ Opening Day rotation is likely to exclude two of Tony Gonsolin, Dustin May, and Julio Urias. The Red Sox’ Opening Day rotation is unlikely to include a pitcher better than any of those three. The two organizations are not comparable and have not been for more than just a couple years.
