    Pats sign TE Jonnu Smith

    They could have Asiasi lined up on the left, Henry on the right, and then White (or Bolden) with Jonnu in the backfield. I envision it giving the option to be creative with screens to either option in the backfield, have both run routes, and just be more creative in general with having two very...

    Pats sign TE Jonnu Smith

    I thought it would be a good idea to bump this because the discussion in a lot of threads right now about Jonnu. He was one of my favorite signings in the off-season, but I think it's universally acknowledged that the team didn't scheme well for him. BB lauded his after catch / space abilities...

    Patriots at Bills Part 3

    It was a fun time! I actually ducked out early because I was losing feeling in my toes, but I'd do it again but wear thicker socks and more toe warmers next time.

    Patriots at Bills Part 3

    I saw the ticket prices are ridiculously low, so I'm going to be flying up from Florida to see the game. The Patriots have won every game I've watched, so I'm going to take credit for this one when they win on Saturday.

    9/12/21 Squish the Fish

    Welp. Bolden must be the back the rest of the game if we get the ball back.

    Tompa Bay: Tom Tom club

    If I remember correctly, Manning retired the same year the story broke. The NFL later dropped the investigation / cleared him of using banned substances. This actually happened during the Armstrong years as well. He tested positive once or twice, but the cycling governing body (UCI) covered it...

    Tompa Bay: Tom Tom club

    Brady getting popped for PEDs would have a similar fall from grace as Armstrong did in my opinion.

    MLB suspends Trevor Bauer for 2 years with no pay

    Yeah. That's why I was asking because this hearing was specifically wrt a restraining order. The impression I got from Bauer's defense was that she misrepresented her injuries in her filings and did the same about the number of texts and calls she received. I had also had the impression that...

    MLB suspends Trevor Bauer for 2 years with no pay

    IANAL - but do the misrepresentions in her filings (skull fracture, Bauer harassing with text messages and calls, joking about becoming rich / ending his career) play into this? I’ve been the victim of dating violence in Florida (obviously not California) and I remember the SA thoroughly...

    2nd Round Pick Jud Fabian will not be signed

    Didn't MLB Network announce the Mets had a deal with Rocker in place almost immediately after they drafted him? I could have sworn that happened and they were reporting him as signed that same night. With Fabian, I suspect after Meyer falling, their whole draft board was blown up and they...

    Matt Barnes going on COVID-IL

    I live in the Tampa - Saint Pete area. My work embraced a hybrid environment. Several, including myself, are vaccinated and did catch something last week. Of the four of us, I know three (including myself) tested negative for COVID. The other one didn’t get tested. So not sure where @tmracht...

    Your top "forgot he was a Red Sox"

    Adam LaRoche? I think we traded for him then traded him away almost immediately after edit: yup, traded him away for casey kotchman (another name for this thread!). Kotcham OPS'd .572 down the stretch in 95 PA and LaRoche had a .957 OPS for the Braves in August and September

    Your top “almost-a-Red-Sox”

    That would have been amazing. This is how I thought it would shake out (since the article was dated July, so I'm thinking it would have been a mid-season signing): 3B Lowell DH Ortiz LF Bonds 1B Youkilis 2B Pedroia RF Drew CF Crisp or Ellsbury C Varitek SS Lugo Having Bonds means that, when...

    Your top “almost-a-Red-Sox”

    Reportedly were interested in signing Bonds back in 2008... probably not legit given its bleacher report, but man, what a thing that would have been.

    June MLB News

    Why not? Chris Hermann, Jett Bandy, and Charlie Madden shouldn't prevent them from claiming him. But I guess there's a 40 man crunch as is, and he's not worth exposing Hernandez (AA) or Wong (AAA). Are teams still able to claim a player and then try to sneak them through waivers themselves?

    Deivy Grullon was DFA'd as well by the Rays. Any chance the Sox claim him again?

    Knight Xander Bogaerts of the Order of Orange-Nassau

    If I recall correctly from Homegrown (and I may not be recalling correctly), didn’t Bogaerts get upset he was playing third base? He sees himself as a shortstop. Maybe that’s not true now (or a few years from now) but it’s something that probably should be considered when evaluating a...

    Knight Xander Bogaerts of the Order of Orange-Nassau

    What do you think Bogaerts is realistically worth on the open market? Lindor just signed for 10 / 341. Would you sign Bogaerts to that? Frankly, I love Bogey, but I'm not sure he's a player I want tied up until he's 39 or 40. I'd probably go 4 / 120 or 5 / 150. He's not a player I want tied up...

    NFL Draft Rd.4-7: Everything Goes Gamethread

    They have until Monday to decide on Sony's fifth year, right? BB said the other day, they choose BPA and worry about fit later. This could mean he's redshirted ala Damian Harris.
