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

    If the team gets a "W", they are ok. If it's an "L", I never want to see them again.

    Thank You, Jackie Bradley Jr.

    I had to add my lurker"s thanks to this thread. Best wishes to JBJ in his new uniform. He left me with many good Red Sox memories.

    I was so happy that I started beating on our trash can.

    It never gets old - reflections on Oct 17-20, 2004

    I plan to look at the moon tonight.

    Say hello to Smiley Ball! the Worcester Red Sox's New mascot!

    Thanks for the laughs, everyone. It sort of softens the blow about the Chiefs/Pats cancellation.

    Red Sox pitching carousel thread (our pitching is HISTORICALLY bad)

    Got up this morning and ,out of habit, checked the box score of last night's game. I had to assume from the list of pitchers (Triggs, Hall, Valdez, Tapia, Leyer and Stock) that the Red Sox have now hired a law firm to handle the pitching for the rest of the year.

    Prediction for tonight's doubleheader: Godley awful followed by Mazza casualties.

    Worst Team Ever?

    I have been watching for 70 years and am convinced that this is the worst pitching staff I have seen (although if the top two are removed from past teams, this may not be true). I have never heard of most of these guys and do not expect to memorize many of their names for the future. No...

    Bard is back! (on the Rockies, not the Red Sox)

    Feel good story of the year. In fact, it is the only one so far.

    Bard is back! (on the Rockies, not the Red Sox)

    And while we are on this topic, let us not forget the great Satchel Paige who pitched for the St. Louis Browns in 1953 and returned as sort of a publicity stunt for Charlie Finley's KC A's in 1965 to pitch 3 innings and save a game at age 58 or so. Incidentally, I personally saw him pitch in a...

    Bard is back! (on the Rockies, not the Red Sox)

    Shades of Jim Bouton who pitched his last game for the Astros in 1970 and made a return to the majors in 1978 with the Braves.

    MLB 2020: We're Playing, but We Can't Agree on Anything

    I agree that the year should be scrubbed. The protests without proper social distancing virtually assured the COVID-19 virus cases will increase over the summer months. I'm already beginning to worry about college basketball season and Christmas gatherings.

    Soup Goes to Nam

    Thanks for posting this. I have one of his baseball cards in my closet and see it every day. Coincidentally, my father, who was in the Battle of the Bulge, carried the same name.

    Best Red Sox Closer: Nominees

    Koji, Radatz, Paps, Kimbrel, and and Lowe. In order. But if Lowe gets to count, I would like to mention a reliever/starter who has not been mentioned yet. That would be Ivan "Ike" Delock.

    MLB 2020: We're Playing, but We Can't Agree on Anything

    A truncated season beginning in late May or June is the best case scenario, I would guess. Meanwhile, have some good books ready to read. I might suggest this one: …...………………...………………………...

    2019-20 Offseason Discussion

    Thanks, it was interesting to read page 23 instead of starting with 24. My bad, but I will blame it on living in the central time zone.

    2019-20 Offseason Discussion

    I will be interested to read what posters think about the Kevin Pillar rumor. He would seem to be a good fit for next year if healthy.
