    Red Sox sign P Chris Martin

    That's how I felt about Edwin Diaz's contract. This? Meh, seems fine. If he really did discover something with the Dodgers (the new pitch mix perhaps), it's a steal, & if he is what he has been, it's ok.

    Red Sox sign P Chris Martin

    It looks like the primary change Martin made between the Cubs & Dodgers is throwing more fastballs. His fastball & cutter have always given opponents more problems than his other pitches, so focusing on these more appears to have led to greater success & more popouts...

    Doogie Drains 3s the Sam Hauser Thread

    Lol I've been somewhat of a Hauser skeptic (oops), but I saw that when I was looking for something else & thought it was fun enough for this thread.

    Doogie Drains 3s the Sam Hauser Thread

    The secondary list defaults to a 15-minute (all season) minimum to qualify whereas the list I posted has the normal qualifying requirements. Technically Hauser is 22nd on that list if you change that minimum to 0 minutes. ETA - here's the page with the list I posted...

    Red Sox Rumors

    Abreu also plays like ~competent defensive first base (DRS is cool with him, DWAR isn't), which has some value to a team which...needs a first baseman. Tony LaRussa was a bit more excited about Abreu's defense in 2021 than the above description... & just for fun...

    2022-2023 General Celtics thread

    Dray's also shooting 60% & having his highest scoring season since he was 27 ('17-'18). He also has a +21.9 on/off, which would be even more impressive if Steph's wasn't +27.3.

    Red Sox Rumors

    I was just looking at the state income tax stuff, too. Was going to do a breakdown of what it would look like to have to buy out any interest Abreu has in playing 1B regularly, state income tax, World Series champions, warm weather, etc. & it's like why?

    Red Sox Rumors

    Trading for overpaid players is better than signing overpaid players because when you trade for overpaid players they give you stuff along with the overpaid player. ETA - This sounds unnecessarily snarky lol. I don't think Abreu would be the best use of resources at that rate, though...

    Silver Dollar - The Official 2022-23 NBA Betting Thread!

    Whole thing was just kind of unsettling to me. I almost bet the Lakers when it moved to even & should have lol. Just a dumb day overall because I felt like making tiny bets without feeling strongly about the games. Bet the under on the 3 earliest games yesterday. Guess I should have gone with...

    I mostly meant why it moved so close to gametime. I assumed LeBron/AD potentially being out & being restricted was already factored into the +2.5 from an hour earlier.

    Too narrow of a middle. I'll take 4-0 with no real sweats & an ez Celtics win, though. Happy Thanksgiving all!

    Silver Dollar - The Official 2022-23 NBA Betting Thread!

    It's true, Mavs have won the last 4. I kinda hate betting for or against the Celtics (unless they're heavy favorites then I can get a mental middle).

    Joely Rodriguez signed to 1+1 Contract

    Empire Sports Media did a deep dive yesterday on why the Yankees should sign him back, which included these splits showing when he increased his changeup usage: https://empiresportsmedia.com/new-york-yankees/the-yankees-should-reunite-with-this-talented-bullpen-arm/

    Silver Dollar - The Official 2022-23 NBA Betting Thread!

    For some reason I'm tempted by 76ers +5.5 now that it's moved that far already lol Trying to pick a 5th game. Don't really like any of them that much, but prefer betting on an odd # of games for entertainment purposes. So far have... Pistons +11.5 Heat -1.5 Nets +2.5 Hawks - 5.5
