    10/27/21 vs. Washington

    Seems like every guy the Celtics acquire ends up being a JAG. At some point, to make the leap, JT and JB gotta make other guys around then better.

    Losing to the wizards at home isn’t something that should happen, right?

    Mets Continuing To Mets

    You know, they should give Dan Duquette a call. He’d be a decent fit for a few years, I think.

    The Michael McCorkle "Mac" Jones Thread

    The early returns on Mac are fairly encouraging but we are only 7 games into his career and while he has performed better than the other rookie QB’s, is it worth noting that he’s only beaten teams that have started rookie QB’s? I think the next stretch of games will tell us a lot more. The next...

    JD: In or Out?

    It seems like there is a pretty big variance among what people think JD’s value is. If they are hoping he opts out and they want to sign Schwarber, than I don’t think extending the QO is worth the risk. If you don’t want JD back at $19.4, why would you want him at $18.9 or whatever the QO is? I...

    JD: In or Out?

    Yeah it’s not a bad OF market. Seems like there are more good players available in FA this year than the last few. Of course, the CBA looms over all so kind of tough to predict what will happen. Probably nothing, for a while.

    JD: In or Out?

    Castellanos has an opt out (like JD). 2/34 left. Garcia’s option converted into a mutual option. Assume he’ll opt out (1/12 with a 2 buyout) but not a sure thing. Good points re Cruz, and Blackmon.

    Red Sox Offseason discussion

    I can’t see any incentive for sides to come to agreement on deals before they know what the CBA will look like. Signing big deals before expiration doesn’t look great for the owners side, either.

    69 pitches in 6 innings! Fatigued pitcher and a wiped out pen, you’d think the Yankees would have worked the count a bit. Of course, they should have tried bunting off Schilling too.

    I got my years confused on Arroyo, I was thinking of 03 Arroyo who made the postseason roster after being in AAA most of the year. He was obviously in the rotation all year in 04 and started game 3, which I had also forgotten. Of course he was the Slappy victim in G6. It’s insane how good of a...

    8 years ago today….

    Mendoza was the loser in G3, and never pitched for the Sox again, kind of an odd bit of trivia. I have the recollection, not sure if it’s true or not, that he was hurt in G3 and unable to go after that? And you couldn’t replace players mid series like you can now? I don’t recall what the real...

    The 2021 World Series: Braves vs. Astros

    If someone asked you who led the NL in RBI how many guesses would you need until you got to Adam DuVall?

    The 2021 World Series: Braves vs. Astros

    If the Stros win, Marwin Gonzalez could get a ring, so there’s that.

    I honestly don’t recall. I assume since it was the top of the 9th, they wanted Workman to pitch the bottom and not have to use Koji for two?

    8 years ago today….

    One correction, I just realized Workman bat in the ninth (one out, nobody on). The game never made it to extras. Adding to the frustration was that Workman was pulled two batters into the bottom of the ninth (one on, one out) for Koji! Who promptly gave up a double to Allen fucking Craig and...

    Will you be watching the World Series?

    Oh and baseball airing games on weekends during the day against football would be suicide. You have to maximize eyeballs and way more people are available to watch at night, and you need to at least attempt to minimize competitive programming people might also want to watch. MLB is generally...

    Will you be watching the World Series?

    Just out of curiosity, how often do folks here watch MLB games that don’t include the Sox? Or the Sox rivals? I consider myself a pretty big baseball fan but I don’t want generally watch non-Sox teams. Part of it is obviously how the season works- usually everyone is playing at once, so it’s...

    Omg, Pedro in g7 was horrifying. Hits to three of the first four batters get hits and it’s suddenly 8-3 with a runner in and one out and every one of us is thinking, ok a walk here and a homer and the tying run is on deck…only when Bellhorn homered to lead of the next inning did I feel...
