    Wake me in time for the '27 season. It's difficult to imagine this congealed mess becoming something useful before then.

    Pivetta’s Return to (Poor) Form

    I am seriously wondering about this. For this guy to emerge from years of mediocrity to suddenly become Barry Bonds at age 36. If its natural then kudos but...

    A feeling I get about Cora a little too often. I am probably wrong in ascribing that to him but it sure would be nice if I got that feeling less often.

    I meant to imply the whole gestalt of that disaster, but with Valdez at the helm. He is not responsible for most of that. That being said I never like seeing him enter a game. He came in with a 5.00 era and actually lowered it during that fiasco. He doesn't inspire confidence. He teammates just...

    If only Bloom cared about pitching after the 5th inning.

    Cinco de Mayo at 1:35PM - Ohtani (maybe) and the Angels vs. Dick Mountain

    Well one of these teams is really easy to root for.

    No, but I wish they had.

    Grade the Red Sox trade deadline

    How exactly is the roster "better today than yesterday"? Right now it is exactly the same as it was a week ago but we have one extra player on the IL. Might be a different story in a week or two but the season may not matter very much by then. I gave it a "D". While I'm not assigning blame our...

    Next man up, err I mean Down: Craig

    If the Sox season hinges on Vic "alone" being the difference between success and failure in any single game that's very troubling. The same could be said of any player for that matter, but certainly Vic at this point. The fact that the game might have been won if he were playing is true, yet...

    The 2015 Rotation: Where do you stand? (1/20/15)

    Agreed. But I'm sure it often comes into play in signings also. If Shields were 9-2 at Fenway instead of 2-9, I'm imagining that is not completely ignored in the minds of the FO. It's human nature. Besides, you know that a sss by no means implies data is false, or improbable for that matter...

    The 2015 Rotation: Where do you stand? (1/20/15)

    Don't be ridiculous. Decisions in baseball are made everyday in baseball based upon information that doesn't include an entire career, or anywhere close to it. It would be impossible without it. It really is kinda that simple.

    The 2015 Rotation: Where do you stand? (1/20/15)

    Look, we all get the idea of sss. But to completely dismiss his career performance at Fenway, his post-season starts, and his 30 or so life time starts against the Sox as a total non-factor in the decision making process is preposterous. To think this has no part in the FO's impression of...
