    2018-19 Offseason Thread

    He has no opt outs in his contract. He's in the organization all year if they want him.

    Baseball Cop, an inside look at the seemy side of baseball

    I just found this book written by a high school classmate, Eddie Dominguez. Eddie went on from JP, and Don Bosco HS to become quite a credentialed law enforcement officer with BPD. His career progression led him to the Red Sox, MLB, and a spot on an independent team of law enforcement pros...

    We're halfway through the season

    Sorry if posted elsewhere. The Sox have a great post ASG schedule. Other than a three game trip to Chicago, every game is in the Eastern time zone.

    The 2017 Rotation

    As Ole Hickory pointed out in his latest piece, they likely don't move anyone until Spring Training, so mid March is my expectation. Making determinations on Sandoval, Vaxquez, Swihart, Johnson, Elias and Owens will tell them if they are trading for depth, or trading for need. This seems a...

    Dave Dombrowski: The Right Man For The Job?

    I enjoyed both the article, and the thread discussion tremendously, but this post in particular nails it. In this city, with the youth and control of this team, and in this labor market; what DDo did, basically adding only $15M of salary and dropping payroll slightly under the LT limit is...

    Red Sox acquire Tyler Thornburg from Brewers

    I saw that pic. He looks like a baseball player, instead of a beer league softballer now. Obviously their internal reports were strong enough that they dealt Shaw. Fingers crossed!

    Chris Sale to Boston for Moncada, Kopech, & 2 Prospects

    Two years running his stats are bad in late season. Could be fatigue, could be disinterest after getting knocked out of playoffs. ChiSox reportedly tailored a low impact spring last year in hopes he wouldn't repeat what he did. Didn't work!

    How Good Are The Sox Now?

    My expectation is they compete in the WS. Detroit is the only playoff likely team that is playing well, and it may be an illusion because of the drek they are playing right now. I won't be angry, or disappointed if they don't win because this is just gravy. I expected to digest a WS meal, or...

    How Good Are The Sox Now?

    So good I;m really concerned about the long term mental health of my Chicago friends. They simply have no idea what we have here, they've been so consumed with their North side squad. One game out for best record in AL.

    David Ortiz will retire at end of 2016 season.

    Thanks to the fine members here for sharing the links. Great stories that filled in the general narrative. The HR Derby story was new for me. Loved it!

    Mookie Betts: Superstar?

    No glich on my Galaxy Note 4. Excellent read that validated with data what my eyes were seeing. The kid has so much ability, and a sharp mind to match. Next 5 years will be a joy watching all these kids, but Mookie stands out as the guy with the most WOW factor. Thanks for another superior...

    2016 Starting Rotation/Bullpen Spillover

    With reports of so many in the Sox FO expressing shock at the money he would receive, and the reports that they met only with Price, Greinke and Zimmermann, I don't see that happening.

    Thanks for the correction. That makes DeGrom a year to year match. But like I said, not happening.

    Free Agent Bingo

    There is a route to this, but like almost everything we offer as suggested deals, extremely unlikely to ever happen Trade JBJ to Cubs for Baez, years and cost match Trade X for Harvey, years and cost match Sign Heyward 9/189 Baez starts at SS, with Marrero as late inning defensive specialist...
