    Jarren Duran

    He's like Ichiro-fast. He regularly makes balls to the left side of the infield into hits that have no business being hits. He puts a ton of pressure on the defense. But he hits for very little power, even in a low-power league. Having seen Benintendi, Moncada, Devers, etc., very recently, he...

    Alex Speier's Book, Homegrown

    Alex was at the Sea Dogs game tonight promoting the book. He threw out the first pitch, then signed copies under the grandstand during the first inning (maybe longer). I bought a copy - only $20 - and had him sign it for me and my son. Pretty great experience. Alex is a great guy - we chatted...

    Finn: Red Sox Potentially Changing Radio Broadcast Approach

    Agreed on all fronts. We tried to listen to the game last night on the way back from camp and my boy, wearing a JD shirt and having just spent two hours throwing a ball off the wall, said, "can we just listen to music?" Brutal.

    Suppertime, again!

    Wow. Barnes crossed up Vaz badly, but threw it right down the middle and got the called strike anyway.

    Suppertime, again!

    Mancini has dead eyes.

    Suppertime, again!

    I love Devers. And I love how much Eck loves Devers. What a fun player. Mookie-Devers-Xander-JD. We’re so lucky.

    Suppertime, again!

    There’s the Mookie pull swing!

    The Greg Hill and Danielle Murr show on 'EEI

    I think the afternoon show is pretty good: Javs and Danks do the work, get good guests, know way more than I do about the NFL and College Football, and are relatively entertaining. But they take a LOT of calls. I think Maine's caller base is a lot less personality heavy than Boston's. They don't...

    Mookie BBetts - 2019 Campaign

    The difference seems most pronounced against righties. Is he being pitched fundamentally differently?

    Mookie BBetts - 2019 Campaign

    Pretty clearly, Mookie is either fundamentally trying not to pull the ball as much, because he thinks it makes him a better hitter long term, or he's being pitched differently: I haven't done the deeper analysis to look at exact numbers, but the eye test there's something going on here. And...

    MIA JBJ

    .601 OPS since the all-star break and trending downward. Watching him gun down Billy Hamilton at 3rd last night was awesome. But it's just so brutal to watch JBJ struggle at the plate. After slashing 365/447/635 from June 9 to July 2 (86 PA), he's gone 170/248/321 since (117 PA). It's hard...

    Kirk and Callahan: Done

    It's a harsh world out there for "content creators" of all stripes who work at organizations that are primarily ad-driven. Facebook and Google are hoovering up a huge amount of ad spend, and radio stations, newspapers, TV stations, etc., are all suffering...

    8/7 - Because Someone Has To

    Nesn just showed the Blame it on the Rain video with Papelbon and Delcarmen. And now Delcarmen is telling a pretty crazy story about how the video came to be.

    Jarren Duran

    Can confirm. My boy made a poster for him last night. Really the only Sea Dog to root for right now, though we got lucky and saw McGrath last night. He might be real.

    8/7 - Because Someone Has To

    It's really hard not to see this team as having packed it in when Dombrowski said the team wasn't good enough to invest in. This team looks like the definition of "desultory."

    Red Sox Rays August 1st

    First team to win 8 at Fenway since the 67 Orioles, I think.

    Red Sox Rays August 1st

    This Rays team is not good at hitting. And yet they have now scored 6, 8, and 7 runs. This Sox team has gone from otherworldly to bad incredibly fast.

    That pitch was so bad

    Red Sox Rays August 1st

    At some point you gotta look at LeVangie. Many, many pitchers seeming to regress.
