    The DD Replacement. Who's Next?

    Some recent moves by the Cubs and D'Backs would appear to be proactively retaining a few potential candidates for the Red Sox position. Jason McCleod https://www.dailyherald.com/sports/20190911/chicago-cubs-give-mcleod-new-role Mike Hazen...

    DD fired

    Henry and Werner are both 70yo, any thoughts as to whether they may have decided to sell the team? Would we expect them to still be active owners at say....75yo? They may see managing long-term financial commitments, re-setting the luxury tax, and a strong farm system as a way of maximizing...

    Just to clarify, when I mentioned replay I was referring to challenging a call on the field.... Not showing highlights.

    DD fired

    I wonder if the Nightengale leak could actually be from the Red Sox front office with the idea of encouraging JDM/Boras to opt out of his contract (don't want to be part of a rebuild). That would free up some considerable cash to make a serious run at a Mookie extension. From the Sox...

    DD fired

    I caught most of this interview and some things that stood out for me are as follows: "Decided not to have a press conference because we weren't going to answer questions" "Unfortunately Cora was asked questions....he is obligated to do pre-game and post-game"......Did they not expect him to be...

    DD fired

    Agree completely......no way one meeting is going to fundamentally change a swing after 15+ years of repetition with the previous method. Would assume that Mookie slipped as a result of being 5'-9" with teams more willing to take a chance with a 6"-2" prospect.

    Slow games

    Interesting.....There might be a connection with the increase in pitches/at bat to the increase in strikeouts.

    Slow games

    Gotta agree with this.......As an example, Both of my boys have played college baseball and love the game but they very seldom watch it (accept maybe playoffs/ world series). They much prefer to play a video game and watch the baseball highlights afterward.

    Slow games

    I guess mound visits and intentional base-on-balls weren't the issue. Another factor that no one has mentioned yet, is instant replay.....As someone who lived thru the Chuck Knoblach phantom tag, I am all for getting the call correct. However, it seems to take much longer than necessary...

    8/21 - There is still hope

    Owings (RH....129 BA) pinch hit for Hernandez (LH ......316 BA) while Holt (LH......314) remained on the bench. Not sure how JBJ got mentioned

    8/21 - There is still hope

    Apparently a Right-Handed .129 hitter is preferable to a .314 Left-Handed hitter

    David Ortiz in Hospital with Gunshot Wound?

    I hesitate to include this in this thread as there is no indication that Ortiz was/is anyway involved, and I am not trying to imply that is the case, but both stories appear to involve the drug lord "Cesar the Abuser". First Papi getting shot after possibly being involved with Cesar's girlfriend...
