    What does 2023 look like?

    I mean, yeah. Happens all the time. Doug Mientkiewicz says hello.

    September Call-ups - Who ya got?

    I'm wondering how injuries are going to factor into this. My guess is a lot - if Story doesn't look like he's ready, for example, do you bring up Valdez? How does that change the calculus?

    Just keep Pivetta off the slopes this winter.

    August MLB Game Thread

    Needs 8 home runs to pass A-Rod on the all-time HR list, too. Probably won't happen... but man, that'd be sweet if it did.

    Sox sign Wacha

    Holy cow... I had no idea Perez was pitching that well. Where the hell did that come from?

    I mean yeah, the Yankees have been scuffling since the All-Star Break. I don't think anyone realistically expected them to keep winning at a .786 clip like they were in June. They're still a damn good ballclub, though. It feels good to take 2 out of 3 against them - especially after our best...

    Red Sox in season discussion

    This series certainly feels like something of a turning point. Took 2 out of 3 from one of the best teams in baseball, a divisional rival no less. Pham looks like a legitimately good pickup. Exceptional pitching throughout, including a huge comeback start from Wacha. Is it enough to turn the...

    Tatis Jr. suspended 80 games for PEDs

    As far as I can tell, only two other players have ever been suspended for clostebol. Dee Gordon in 2015 and Freddy Galvis in 2012. Coincidently, after Galvis had a few solid years as the starting shortstop in Philly, he was traded in 2018 to... none other than the San Diego Padres, who released...

    Tatis Jr. suspended 80 games for PEDs

    So since signing his record-breaking 14-year contract, he's had: Repeated left shoulder subluxations, which he refuses to get surgery to fix and limits him to the outfield. Multiple motorcycle accidents in the same offseason, one of which resulted in a broken wrist that caused him to miss 4...

    Tatis Jr. suspended 80 games for PEDs

    This is heartbreaking. I love watching him play. Now it just feels gross.

    Or the more likely scenario is that he shopped JD, didn't like any of the returns, and didn't pull the trigger. I don't buy Bloom worrying about losing the clubhouse over a JD trade - these guys are professionals. They've seen players come and go. They know the business. I'm fine with hanging...

    Lol fair. Should've stuck with Gallo.

    Chris Sale aiming to return

    Duran was spotted on the grassy knoll.

    What does 2023 look like?

    I could be wrong about this, but I don't think Bloom is going to splurge on one of the top free agents. We're still in the rebuilding cycle. For that reason, I think we bring back a lot of the current squad - Vazquez, Eovaldi, Hernandez, Pham. The one wrench in all this is what they decide to...

    Will the Sox make the playoffs? And how far if so?

    In his last ~100 plate appearances, he's hitting .321/.380/.476. There's a lot of things wrong with this team right now, but Xander is not one of them. Interestingly, I also looked at Nomar's splits from 04 - I didn't remember him hitting .327/.365/.523 after he returned in June. Hell, he was...

    Will the Sox make the playoffs? And how far if so?

    I voted yes, but getting bounced in the ALCS. The team got absolutely hammered by injuries in late June/July. Doesn't excuse their play at all, but I think this team looks a lot different once a few of the regulars come back: Wacha comes back next week. Bumps Winckowski back to AAA, or maybe...

    Red Sox Trade Deadline 2022

    Valdez hit his second home run since joining Worcester on Wednesday. Smallest of sample sizes, I know... but man that power is enticing.

    8/5 at KC

    .174/.216/.304 over his last 74 plate appearances. .599 OPS in July. Yeesh. I knew he was cold but that's putrid.

    We Wish You Well Jackie Bradley Jr. (DFA 8.4.22)

    God that seems like a lifetime ago. I know it was naive, but it really felt like that team was going to be a force for years to come. The Killer Bs, JD filling the gaping hole that Ortiz left, Chris Fucking Sale, Kimbrel locking things down in the ninth, Devers and Bogey shoring up the infield...
