    Where the Red Sox have gone wrong

    I'm sorry. My previous posts may have been too coy. Everything you write here is equal parts racist and stupid. The board is diminished with your contributions.

    Where the Red Sox have gone wrong

    Maybe they can acquire Khris Davis just so they can get rid of him, too.

    Mookie, too? He's not one of the good ones?

    Modem/Router Combo for Comcast XFinity

    They may have changed it now that you can activate it online yourself. But when I had to call service to activate one before, they weren't allowed to do it unless it was voice-capable.

    Modem/Router Combo for Comcast XFinity

    I have Comcast's Triple Play service (TV, internet, and phone) because it's actually cheaper than getting just TV and internet. Even though I've never actually used the phone, I'm required to have a modem that supports voice on the account. If you're in the same boat, make sure you get a modem...

    The Rays and their nagging attendance problem. Will a new stadium solve that?

    The son of the former Expos owner has purchased a plot of land he'd like to use to build a new stadium. https://montreal.ctvnews.ca/mobile/land-developer-montreal-baseball-investors-reach-deal-on-potential-stadium-site-1.4431978

    RIP Bill Buckner

    It doesn't seem like a raw deal to me. If the fans never really gave him a hard time and it was just a media creation, then he stayed as a story in the baseball world without getting any of the negative experiences from people. If not for that play he'd be remembered (or more likely not...

    5/27 - JRod vs Porky

    They should officially change the team name to the Boston Red Sox Leave 'Em Loaded.

    Top 10 pick forgoes minors, goes to Japan

    And Lindor, the guy on the list with Hall of Fame talent, is 8 years from the draft and just made as much as Stewart signed for a year ago. Unless you're a huge money top pick, going somewhere else until you're 25 seems like a really smart financial decision.

    Building a Bullpen, 2019 edition

    In some ways it may help Barnes only to have to prepare for the best four or five guys on each team. He knows how he wants to attack them and he'll never get caught off guard by someone he's never seen before. I wonder how effective it's going to be over the course of the season against AL East...

    Koji Uehara retires from professional baseball

    That's part of the Greg Maddux myth. He threw a sinker, cutter, and four seamer, and could get the straight one up there at 95. The ones that moved came in slower. And he could throw any of them exactly where he wanted whenever he wanted. Tom Glavine got into the Hall of Fame with a fastball...

    And they ask why MLB attendance has been decreasing

    Getting rid of the fees league-wide would be great. Why do teams need to charge extra when they're setting the face value and selling the tickets themselves? Selling and transmitting tickets are just a cost of doing business and should be built into the ticket price. Even if it's a small amount...

    Are baseballs juiced?

    I have two baseballs at home. One from around 10 years ago and one that a Rays player tossed to my daughter last weekend. The seams are completely different. The older ball has higher, narrower seams, and the new one is much more flat and spread out. There may be some differences inside as well...

    Keeping the Sky Up. What is going right?

    How can a play that only gets made 72% of the time be considered "routine?" That doesn't make any sense to me.

    4/26-27 Rays will put an end to this nonsense ... eventually

    This one is on Chavis and Jackie. Two pathetic at bats in the 8th.

    Swihart traded to Dbacks

    I think it has more to do with the number of diving plays a second baseman makes. They have time to dive, get up, and throw the runner out on the right side of the infield that you just don't have at short or third. Hitting the ground more often than other positions takes its toll on the back...

    Would you accept a Last Place Finish as "Payment" for a World Series Championship?

    What led you to not purchase it this year? I like watching good baseball being played. Having to sit through years of bad baseball for one year of great baseball is a trade I would have taken 15 years ago. But having gotten over the hump (times four), I think I'd rather see the team play well...

    W.S. Hangover Cures: The Devil is in the Details...

    Mookie is great, but he's also going into his last two years of arbitration, so he's going to paid like he's great. He's making $20 million this year and will probably be in the $25 to $30 million range next year. Teams would love to have him, but probably wouldn't give up the farm for a year or...

    W.S. Hangover Cures: The Devil is in the Details...

    At this point all the starters have pitched at least three times each. If they needed more innings by the end of Spring Training, they certainly have them by now. The fact that they're still pitching terribly suggests something else is wrong. Or they're just paying back all of last year's good...

    Swihart traded to Dbacks

    Are they seriously going to pin the shitty pitching on him? It's even more strange a move when they had to use their other catcher at second base. You'd think you'd want more positional flexibility in that case rather than less.
