    I admit to being guity to some pretty shitty posting cause I'm so disgusted by Bloom's inaction but I just think a lot of us have really really enjoyed this surprise season. It's been a genuine delight. And the idea of watching them get lapped by not just the Rays, which was always possible all...

    I VERY VERY VERY VERY much wanted to trade Duran at the deadline now that you mention it.

    Is there an argument to bringing in Barnes or Whitlock here? This game feels as much like a must win as a game in late july can feel. They

    Rizzo going to the yankees because Bloom wants to "build" something might be the defining moment that turns this whole season.

    I truly don't think it counts if they guy isn't actually playing. This was a HUGE series and we needed all hands on deck. Trading for someone without a position to play, who is weeks away from even starting rehab assignments, does not count as "adding a 900 ops hitter"

    Rizzo homers again for the Yanks. How about that.

    I'm so glad so many of you were happy with Bloom's deadline performance. I genuinely am.

    I fully never said I wanted Scherzer or Berrios. I was actually fine with not getting a starter if we didn't have the prospects. Pitching is hard, we have Sale coming, I get that gamble. I will never understand why they're good with Dalbec at first. Bryant, Rizzo, anything would have been...

    Against my better judgement my Dad and I split season tickets this year. I didn't want to reward the team that traded Betts for financial flexibility with any of my money but my dad loves having them and it's been fun this season I will admit. But After Bloom's performance this trade deadline...

    In all seriousness is anyone worried the team is slightly demoralized? All three of their principle rivals got significant upgrades. I don't think those stories about teams that feel left in the lurch by management after a quiet deadline are just Felger and Maz fodder. I do think, if I was a...

    If only we could get players like that

    7/30- 1st game post Michael Chavis

    It's almost like they could have used a boost from an acquisition from a different team. If only there was some sort of trade...deadline....where such a thing was possible. But I guess we might have some prospects in the baseball prospectus top 100 next year so go us! (Back Bay I don't know...

    7/30- 1st game post Michael Chavis

    I dunno. I know how easy it is to be overly reactionary. But seeing Gallo and Rizzo in the Yankee lineup tonight and then our pathetic line up for this huge series against the Rays really has me mad at Bloom. The one guy he traded for isn't even available to help immediately. I truly do not know...

    I'm not great at seeing every tweet from Red Sox Reporters - what is the status of Devers' injury? Is this something we need to be worried about

    Whatever. I know I'm a little over-the-top. But I honestly can't believe you guys are happy about the first base position on this team.

    Did they say that somewhere?

    Grade the Red Sox trade deadline

    I don't want to get too far in the weeds, but it does make me worried he cares more about being the kind of GM that seems smart and hoards assets than actually tries to...you know...win. I know a lot of people here are probably down on Dave Debrowski for the way he left our farm system in...

    Grade the Red Sox trade deadline

    D. I know this year is a surprise success and we are ahead of schedule and all that stuff, but the fact is we're in this position now. You never know how things are going to go next year or the year after. There's a really strong argument that the seasons you are in this kind of position at the...

    Trade deadline

    It's the lack of a first baseman that bothers me. I think it's possible they really did have their eyes on Scherzer, but the price was too high and they couldn't match it. Short of that there wasn't any pitching that really attracted them. I'm very frustrated that we're looking at another 60...

    Tonight: MFY@ Rays for 3. Who you rooting for?

    I don't know. This seems like a pretty good outcome all things considered. Two "gritty" wins for NYY but no momentum offensively. And then no winning streak as your Ace pitcher gets clobbered for 7 ER. I don't know what would have been a better result out of the three games.
