    Beat The Clock

    A ball is not worth the same as a strike. It is worth less. The penalty for today's final out was way too onerous relative to the penalty imposed on a pitcher for missing their time limit. I'm not currently in a situation to write more, buti am eager to discuss soon; the penalty for a hitter...

    Art Martone has died

    Isn't that LJ behind Johnny Damon? Or is my mind playing tricks? Either way, I never potentially wrote a book with Art, nor did he and I have a significant history... (I'm not as relevant as Jack when people pass). Point is, I grew up in RI, I occasionally corresponded with Art during college...

    RIP MikeF

    Is that photo of Craig, Felix, Mike and ? holding their Napkins, in tribute to our very own Napkin (but not John Burkett)? Or did I mis-decode the reference?

    RIP MikeF

    So sad to hear. RIP MikeF. Really was one of the guys that brought SoSH to the next level as a Sox fan collective...before we were spoiled with "nice things" like championship trophies and parades and Cheri's '04 party at the Lantana. Anyways, here's to hoping that in heaven, pitchers and...

    Red Sox player that you cared most about

    Sorry for double post.

    Red Sox player that you cared most about

    Brian Daubach, because he fits all of the criteria JMOH listed. It was always a question mark whether or not he was going to get another year with the club...until he didn't. Evans was my favorite player, and will always be, but Daubach answers the original question. (I did occasionally worry...

    ESPN Is Pathetic

    This, yes. I usually notice grammatical mistakes on tv and in writing but it seems like this guy blew a gasket trying to make the sentence work...I imagine him still seated, hunched over the typewriter with steam coming out of his ears, and he will remain so until the crew stops by his cubicle...

    ESPN Is Pathetic

    From the article above about Tim Kurkjian They're trolling him right? Who wrote this sentence? About winning a lifetime achievement award in writing? Who is this "Jesse Rogers" avatar? Is he real?

    MLB suspends Trevor Bauer for 2 years with no pay

    Couple things. 1. This is kind of where I stand pending further information.... It hits me as a very strange series of events for me not be at least dubious about these claims...that said, I am prepared to listen/ change my position as more evidence is released. 2. Anyone proposing that...

    MLB suspends Trevor Bauer for 2 years with no pay

    I haven't done tremendous research here, but I have had an eye on the story. My question: why does this thread have so much righteous indignation towards the age old concept that people who fuck and then get dumped by famous people are likely to accuse them of wrongdoing? And btw, I love...

    First time baseball coach

    Nip, how old have you become since our last drinking expedition, that you might use the abbreviation for knockout when you are talking about a strikeout? The Nip I knew in 2003 would not have ever used the abbreviation KO to describe a baseball event. Maybe I am just drinking less than I used...

    Cleveland Indians to become the Cleveland Guardians

    Which brings up the obvious question: How is that State getting away with such inaction? Shouldn't they be next to step up and make the change?

    RI AAU (11u) looking for one more player for spring 2021

    I got lot of snarky answers last time I posted, but that's what SoSH has always been, so no big deal. We're a second year team, returning 6 veterans from last year... 5/7 of the best players and two who are small still but are committed and earned their slots I uninvited 4, including two of...

    Fenway Sports Group in Talks to Take Sports Holdings Public

    This is a version of the "reverse merger" which is only as good as the assets underlying the shell. With properties like those Henry owns, this doesn't seem like a big deal, other than to say some of ownership wants to take some chips of the table. What is the old personal financial rule...

    Baseball Drills (Covid-19 Version)

    we're doing a very simple drill that I am surprised noone has mentioned. the broomstick drill. granted we have an aluminum "stickball" bat and a 12 dollar set of 75 tiny whiffle balls, but for my son, who has an excellent eye and technique, this is challenging and keepd him engaged. we do...

    MLB 2020: We're Playing, but We Can't Agree on Anything

    if/when they do resume, they aren't going to push the WS into November.... they're simply going to play a 130 (or 120 or 80) game schedule...subject to resumption date. edit: as stated above, my bad.

    Reserving Judgment... But What Did the Sox Do and How Bad Will They Get Hit?

    I know our Yankee fan mods... have an innate conflict of interest, but my God... (btw, why does my phone auto cap God?) anyhow, back to topic... 1. the Sox, in 2003 and 2004 had the best teams in MLB. many of us were here (or with each other for that matter) enjoying the most...

    The Athletic: The Astros stole signs electronically in 2017 part of a much broader issue for Major League Baseball

    I think the majesty lies in the approximately 9.0 : 1.0 : 0.5 ratio, no? I mean, talk about pitching with a purpose...did he ever put a guy on base when he didn't mean to? never seemed like it... I will admit, I used to come back to Boston and pay extra just to see him live several times...

    The Athletic: The Astros stole signs electronically in 2017 part of a much broader issue for Major League Baseball

    A melodramatic but interesting response I can't say this means much, but if I were a member of the 'Stros organization, this would hit me right in the soul. Then I would go home to my Lamborghini(s), lavish vacations, personal chef etc...but for a couple minutes, it would occur to me that...
