    How long will Chaim last?

    Random sidetrack, but I think Ohtani has played enough MLB baseball and traveled the US to no longer be as adamant about being on the West Coast. I'll go a step further and say that he wants to win, which prohibitively excludes almost all the West Coast teams save maybe SD and LA. The Giants...

    Matt Dermody DFA’d

    Another +1 on @nvalvo - great post. Not much more to add except that I think people are really starting to figure out, on a widespread level, that a lot of baseball players are just assholes, whether due to political leanings, religious leanings, or other. And why shouldn't they be? I'm...

    Sale to IL with “left shoulder inflammation.”

    Cut him as soon as he's healthy. It's over. Having him on the roster next season is a net negative. If I ever see DD in a bar, I'll be sure to dump a full cheap-ass pitcher of beer over his head, but I'll also scream "THANKS FOR 2018!" to soften the blow. And to think people also questioned the...

    How long will Chaim last?

    This latest incident aside, Bloom's biggest crime as The Guy has been failing to trade away enough salary to get under the LT threshold last season. Depending on who you believe he turned down a "bad" offer from the Mets for JDM that would have done the trick or there was nobody interested in...

    The Future of Alex Cora in Boston

    He didn't run hard on on a play where he was out at 2B, so Cora benched him last night

    June 4: Tampa Bay @ Boston

    Ya gotta have faith.

    June 4: Tampa Bay @ Boston

    Honestly? I'd rather have them finish dead last and get a good draft pick than play an additional couple of games and get a middling pick. This team, even with Duvall (who is probably going to take a month or so to readjust to Major League pitching and hitting every day) and Story (who I don't...

    June 4: Tampa Bay @ Boston

    This team was not expected to contend coming into this season. They got hot for a week or two, but this is probably who they are, especially with the Sale out...again. They will likely be lucky to finish outside of the basement this season, something that might be a real long shot given how the...

    Sale to IL with “left shoulder inflammation.”

    He never realized those jerseys he cut up were made in a factory built on an Indian burial ground by a Romani practitioner of dark arts who had just broken a mirror right before walking under a ladder to step in front of a black cat.

    Refsnyder Extended

    He's been a great pickup and it's cheap money. Easy win for Bloom.

    5/29 - The Last Of Us

    I've said it jokingly elsewhere, but it's time for the Garden to go. It's not a good place for home teams in the playoffs. I can't recall seeing two teams lose so may big games in the same building the way the Bruins and Celtics have over the last few years.

    5/29 - The Last Of Us

    They had them right where they wanted them and then decided to pay Celtics basketball. They needed a strong start and were still hungover from Game 6. Oh well. Joe probably saved his job in the last three games but everybody will wonder what could have been and White's heroics will be lost to...

    5/21, Game 3 @Miami

    In a lot of ways, this team, this core, has never developed past week they were when they gagged away Game 7 against the LeBron-led Cavs in 2017. They had that series all but won, had a decent lead, and just started jacking up 3 after 3 that kept missing, which allowed the Cavs to come back, tie...

    5/21, Game 3 @Miami

    At least Belichick had 6 titles under his belt as a head coach before he let hubris get in the way. Brad Stevens was a college coach who never won, then an NBA coach who couldn't win (with mostly this same team) before becoming an executive who has hired two straight coaches who couldn't win...

    5/23 @ Miami "Not today...?"

    It would not behoove Miami to have to play an extra game, because Denver is likely sweeping the Lakers. Make it go 5.

    5/21, Game 3 @Miami

    Novel idea: go after Jimmy or Bam or both early and try to get them in foul trouble. Having one or both have to ride the pine for a bit might allow them to build a double-digit lead and maybe hold it.

    Joe Mazzulla officially named head coach

    Yeah, usually when a team is playing like shit, the coach will call time to let them mentally reset and catch a breath, then tell them they're playing like shit and draw up a play or two to stem the bleeding. I can appreciate the idea behind letting your professional basketball players figure...

    Celtics vs Heat ECF Redux Discussion Thread

    I put this in the game thread, but feels appropriate here: That's pretty damning stuff from Smart. I wonder if it was intentional to make it sound like the coach is a...

    Game 1: Come Tomorrow, Wake Up Anew, See the Sun.

    I can't believe nobody has posted this: Mazzulla might need to be fired before Game 2, if that is his coaching mentality. One timeout in the third could have been all...
