    Red Sox non-star team (since 1975)

    How about Bob Montgomery who later became the Red Sox TV voice with Ned Martin?

    I wonder what @theNeedler and his WPA analysis has to say tonight after JBJ hits the game winning home run. Jackie has now homered in two straight games. This could be the start of another of JBJ's hot streaks. So frustrating a ballplayer with his extreme high and lows.

    Is the problem Dana LeVangie? Dombrowski's vision?

    This will be the first year since 2011 that the Red Sox have not finished either first or last in the division. Beginning in 2012; the Sox went last, first last last first first first. It truly was all or nothing.

    Down on the Farm, 2019 edition

    Pardon my ignorance but I was looking for any information on Henry Mejia the ex Met castoff who the Red Sox signed in Spring Training. At the beginning of the season, I thought he could eventually become a bullpen option during the season. Since then crickets. What did I miss?

    Day Baseball Today

    In Mauidano's world it is breakfest with the BoSox as the game starts at 6am local. In the east it is 1210 first pitch. Adjust accordingly.

    Following Former Red Sox 2019

    Could anyone explain why the Giants were so anxious to send him down before the Rockies series? I know the Giants needed extra pitching but was Baby Yaz the only player with options? If the front office was totally sold on him, wouldn't they have considered another player for demotion rather...

    Who is that coach? I am unfamiliar with the college game.

    Where the Red Sox have gone wrong

    You accusing Hawk68 of being a racist? I actually think in this case he might be correct regarding JBJ. Not every single post has to be seen through the lens of racism. JBJ as we know spends a few months each year hitting like a pitcher

    Red Sox Acquire Andrew Cashner

    Woud you rather the Sox try to get MadBum from the Giants or Bauer from the Cleveland ball club? Maybe see if DeGrom can be pryied from the Mets? The price for an Ace will be expensive this time of year. You need more realistic options.

    ESPN Is Pathetic

    Didn't see this mentioned in this thread but Bob Ley officially announced his retirement. While the rest of ESPN is truly pathetic, Ley was not. He was a no nonsense reporter, the "conscience" of ESPN. In a world of hot takes and reactionary posts, Bob Ley was known for his even handed approach...

    Building a Bullpen, 2019 edition

    In the Joel Hanrahan trade we got Brock Holt. I'd say that trade worked out quite well.

    The 2nd Season - 2019 Playoff Thread

    Not to go all V and N on you, but that was a totally different time obviously. People might not have liked Bush politically, but he was at least respected. The current occupant of the office is not respected at all. I expect both the team and Trump to quietly let the issue die..

    Mookie BBetts - 2019 Campaign

    Just addressing Mookie's lack of steals...For most of the year, he was batting second with JD batting third. It stands to reason that Mookie would be less inclined to steal with JD batting directly behind him than with Andrew batting behind him.

    2019 MLB Draft - Red Sox tracker

    Nope it has nothing to do with that . It goes back to an ex member who used to isolate the good stretches of a particular Red Sox catcher from his bad stretches by speculating on his sleeping habbits. Unless you were on this board in 2009 or so you wouldn't get the joke.

    Rethinking Barstool?

    Why not? What an awful post ..You really showed your true colors. I am ashamed at your toxic lack of self awareness as a human and as a male.

    Darwinzon Hernandez called up

    I know how options work. I just completely forgot he was called up earlier in the year. I thought yesterday was his first call up to the bigs. No need to lecture on how options work. Brain fog on my part.

    Darwinzon Hernandez called up

    Why did they waste an option calling him up? Seems like a terrible waste of resources.

    Pedroia Predictions

    What happened with David Wright? I think insurance is picking up most of his contract but I'm not sure if the Mets are penalized by having his contract still on their books. Ps.. it's not the Red Sox "cap". There is no salary cap in baseball.
