    6/29 Blame Canada ...

    The bullpen will look a lot better in a few weeks when Sale is back and Houck Whitlock (and maybe winckowski?) are in the bullpen.

    Red Sox in season discussion

    If Pavano wasn't moved then maybe the Yankees don't end up overpaying him in 2005 and instead of him they have an actual functioning stater in 2007 which might have won them the division over Boston. Sox were just playing the long game.

    2022 PGA Tour

    In literally every major team sport the players get nearly the same amount of money whether their team goes undefeated or winless, they don't seem to treat those games like exhibitions.

    Red Sox in season discussion

    Ownership is spending almost 400m between 2021 and 2022, I think it's fair to say that ownership's stance on spending money has not changed. If it were almost every big contract guy they have was easily movable over the last 2 years. There's 0 reason to think they won't keep running out one of...

    Red Sox in season discussion

    Bloom spent a total of 12m on 2 pitchers everyone trashed, and so far one has pitched like an ace and the other has pitched like a solid 3/4. Almost like the dude is good at this or something. He also gave up almost nothing for 2 other starters in the rotation who are pitching very well, and...

    How to get back in this thing

    Yeah JBJ makes no sense 37 sOPS+ in April 106 in May 41 in June July could be 125 or 25, and they're probably equally likely, who the fuck knows.

    How to get back in this thing

    Dalbec has had a rough few weeks, but he was a league average hitter in May and has been a league average hitter in June. He's been adequate for almost 2 months now.

    Jarren Duran: Improving in His Second Shot

    Sizemore was like a top 5-10 player. That seems a bit high.

    Jarren Duran: Improving in His Second Shot

    His babip will come crashing down eventually, but it still seems unlikely they'd send him down to keep playing jbj in the lineup every night. Figuring out if he's a viable starting outfielder every day next year is pretty important.

    6/26 Hill vs Civale

    Houck is such a terrible unreliable closer

    6/25 Winckowski vs Bieber

    If you can find a closer that never struggles and makes every save look easy I'd love to know who that is. He did what you're describing once, and then he got out of the jam.

    Everything Must Go? The 2022 Red Sox as Sellers?

    Just think of how much value everyone that people wanted traded in April has added in the last 2 months!

    6/25 Winckowski vs Bieber

    Not only is 3.50 not at all "almost 4", but it also includes his starts. As a reliever it's 3.03, and that's heavily impacted by one terrible appearance. He's been great as a closer.

    6/24 Pivetta vs Quantrill

    Before today he had a 2.93 era 1.16 WHIP and .615 OPS as a reliever, that's really not close at all to average. It's only close to average if you include his starting numbers in, which makes no sense in comparison to other relievers.

    6/24 Pivetta vs Quantrill

    Before tonight he had a 1.04 era in June with a .659 ops allowed. Also not sure why you think his WHIP is high for a reliever when it's decently above the major league average for a reliever. Not really sure what you're hoping for if you don't think he's been impressive so far. He's given up...

    6/24 Pivetta vs Quantrill

    So he isn't cut out to be a closer because he's had some bad appearances in the 8th inning. Interesting logic. Edit: Actually it's one bad appearance. He got shelled in a single 8th inning and that killed his metrics because it's not very many innings.

    6/24 Pivetta vs Quantrill

    He's pitched in 6 save situations this year and has a 1.59 era and 5 saves, but you've decided he isn't cut out to be a closer based on one bad appearance tonight (where he settled down and closed out the game with some nasty pitches)?

    Al Horford - the Celtics' Resurrected Saviour of the Season

    They don't want to reduce his salary by too much anyway, because eventually they're going to want to be able to turn his salary slot into a younger better player.
