    Where the Red Sox have gone wrong

    Fair enough.

    Where the Red Sox have gone wrong

    No they didn't "100% take the rest of the season off." You're welcome to provide our discussion with some facts beyond your own gut level hot take. This is the second invitation to give that a shot and all we're getting is bluster and anecdote and evasion. This is embarrassing to read...

    Where the Red Sox have gone wrong

    I did; every one of them. It seems like a few people have answered your claim with some facts, you're welcome to do the same. You're the one making the claim. What you're saying just isn't accurate. I don't think anyone is claiming they weren't as good as their record. The difference between...

    Where the Red Sox have gone wrong

    They definitely did not take their foot off the gas whatsoever until after they'd clinched home-field, which was game 158 (I believe). The day after that they started the B lineup against Baltimore and lost, then started the regular lineup in the first two against NYY with early exits for some...

    When I said this: It was in response to this: That's the context of my post. The words I chose were a response to these words, not the tangent of nonsense you've jumped in with. I was responding to the sentiments expressed in this post. If you're interested in going to bat for it, go for it...

    If you'd prefer spend your time with Mookie Betts on your favorite team worrying about the market and how much more money he might make than you think he's worth while also opining that other teams won't value him in a trade scenario that's certainly your right.

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

    GMs don't value best-in-the-league defense? Batting average? Holy moly man. Mike Trout is off to the best start of a career of anyone in the history of the sport, what on earth does he have to do with Mookie Betts? As for this year's performance it is April 18th! Imagine not being able to...

    Would a lousy 2019 tarnish 2018 at all for you?

    Misery is, for many (most?), still an integral part of being a Red Sox fan. Even contemplating this is fucking bizarre. Last year could almost literally not have been more perfect and you're entertaining the idea of a bad season after it tainting that? Seriously, pretend you're a Pirates fan...

    Would a lousy 2019 tarnish 2018 at all for you?

    No, of course not. 2013 was not a "fluke" either. They had the best record, run differential, and OPS in the AL, as well as the most team WAR. Their ERA+ was 4th in the league. The only MLB team with a better Pythag, the Cardinals, they beat in six games in the WS.

    4/17 - Eovaldi vs Happ

    I've moved past annoyed into fascination. This is so bad in every facet that I'm running through conspiracy theories and EEI level analysis. "Who slept with who's wife?" type shit. I said it elsewhere but if this doesn't get a lot better really quick the Globe's gonna be in the Bob Hohler...

    Shit, Luke Voit looks like Frank Sobotka.

    4/16 at MFY- I will lead you

    Oof. Getting beat by Mike Tauchman. This is going to be a "hey, I like *baseball*, not just the Red Sox, ok?" kinda year.

    Sale staying consistently at around an earned run an inning.

    4/16 at MFY- I will lead you

    It would be kinda funny if the pitching suddenly turned on a dime as soon as Leon shows up.

    No one ever does and that one was pure damn gold so it did mean a lot.
