    Red Sox in season discussion

    I wish I could share your optimism....Tampa has what, 8 pitchers on the 60 day IL and 2 on the 15 day IL. All but 1 or 2 will probably be active this year. And they have 5 position players on the IL and 4 will probably be back this year. How they are able to stay so close to the WC is...

    Bloom/Cora's Obsession with Marginal Players?

    MassLive.Com is reporting that Refsnyder is on his way to Seattle to join the Sox there. No word on the 40 man roster move needed yet.

    Bloom/Cora's Obsession with Marginal Players?

    So Kike gets hurt and the moves are...release Arroyo from the 40 man, add Fitzgerald and call him up, keep Arauz in AAA. OK, I got it now. I'm not too sure I want to release Arroyo right now, but I see what you want.

    Bloom/Cora's Obsession with Marginal Players?

    Fitzgerald is not on the 40 man roster. Do you want to release Arroyo, or a pitcher?

    A Time for Choosing: Are the Red Sox going to make the playoffs?

    Absolutely. Those 30 odd games will tell Chaim everything he needs to do.

    A Time for Choosing: Are the Red Sox going to make the playoffs?

    I voted Nope. My preseason prediction was 81 wins, and I still think they are a .500 team.

    How to get back in this thing

    And that's what they are...a .500 team. I never have any optimistic feelings with any opponent that the Sox play. What Sox team is going to show up Dr Jekyll or Mr Hyde? I've just accepted that what we have. The only thing that will shock me about the 2022 Red Sox and that's if we are not...

    How to get back in this thing

    I'm not sure I agree with that analysis. The Sox kicked Ass in the first half last year, without Mr. Sale.

    How to get back in this thing

    Very Very True. That is a lot of holes. Xander, JDM, Kike, Vazquez, Plawecki could all be FA this off season. Can't be helped. Dalbec, Duran and Casas are going to be asked (expected) to fill some holes. Opportunities also for Downs, Davis, Hamilton, Wong to step up. Perhaps we sign some of...

    How to get back in this thing

    Isn't this what every team tries to achieve? Build around the veterans you have. Insert your minor leaguers whom you have developed and plug your holes on the FA market.

    BOS offered Bogaerts 1/30 additional not to opt out (Heyman report)

    I'm unsure of the rules of a qualifying offer, but, if Xander should remain with the Sox for the entire season, and opts out after the world series, can the Sox tag him with a qualifying offer?

    Whitlock signed to a 4 year/18.75M extension until 2026.

    We have 2 good things to fall into our laps over that disaster of season (2020), Mayer and Whitlock. Makes me think how fortunate we were to have Pitts, Texas and Detroit pass on Whitlock to make him available for us. Great job Chaim....

    Red Sox in season discussion

    If I understand the MLB rules relating to opening day rosters, the roster will be expanded to 28 players for the month of April. Plus, there is no limit to the number of position players versus pitchers, so you can have 14 of each or 15 of one and 13 of another. Then in May, it reverts back to...

    Sox Contract Extension Poll

    I'll never be convinced that signing Devers to a LT deal would make sense, and it's all because of his weight. 6'0 and weighing 240 is a lot of bulk on his joints.

    Trevor Story has signed with the Boston Red Sox

    Let's not forget the 20 SB last year. Hopefully Duran can make the team to give us at least 2 guys who can run.

    Will the Sox sign a shortstop this offeason?

    My sentiments exactly.

    The Mainboard MLB Lockout Thread

    Absolutely right. This is a bill which can be knocked out over lunch. Many on this board argue that taking away the exemption will not end the lockout. Maybe your right, but which party benefits from the antitrust exemption? I can't see where it benefits the players or the fans. Screw the...

    The Mainboard MLB Lockout Thread

    Was I relying on revoking the antitrust exemption.? I think I wrote it is another means to an end. My only thought was how to get the owners off their butts and get the games going. While we are on the subject.....Liberal Bernie Sanders and Conservative Ted Cruz (when do those two agree on...
