    The 2nd Season - 2019 Playoff Thread

    Not to go all V and N on you, but that was a totally different time obviously. People might not have liked Bush politically, but he was at least respected. The current occupant of the office is not respected at all. I expect both the team and Trump to quietly let the issue die..

    Mookie BBetts - 2019 Campaign

    Just addressing Mookie's lack of steals...For most of the year, he was batting second with JD batting third. It stands to reason that Mookie would be less inclined to steal with JD batting directly behind him than with Andrew batting behind him.

    2019 MLB Draft - Red Sox tracker

    Nope it has nothing to do with that . It goes back to an ex member who used to isolate the good stretches of a particular Red Sox catcher from his bad stretches by speculating on his sleeping habbits. Unless you were on this board in 2009 or so you wouldn't get the joke.

    Rethinking Barstool?

    Why not? What an awful post ..You really showed your true colors. I am ashamed at your toxic lack of self awareness as a human and as a male.

    Darwinzon Hernandez called up

    I know how options work. I just completely forgot he was called up earlier in the year. I thought yesterday was his first call up to the bigs. No need to lecture on how options work. Brain fog on my part.

    Darwinzon Hernandez called up

    Why did they waste an option calling him up? Seems like a terrible waste of resources.

    Pedroia Predictions

    What happened with David Wright? I think insurance is picking up most of his contract but I'm not sure if the Mets are penalized by having his contract still on their books. Ps.. it's not the Red Sox "cap". There is no salary cap in baseball.

    What is the suicide thing and what does it have to do with home runs?

    The Home Grown Red Sox

    How bout Holt and Hembree? I consider them homegrown even though they might have a smidgen of time with other major league teams.

    Pre-Stanley Cup Final News/Notes/Discussion Thread

    I was surprised they actually mentioned the Stanley Cup Final today on Golic and Wingo on ESPN. Wingo mentioned that he is rooting for St. Louis since he spent 6 years there. Nothing too in depth of analysis but still in the past, the Finals would not even get mentioned. Agree with you that...

    May MLB game thread

    I guess I believe in the equality of chances. I think that if one team goes ahead in the top of the inning, the home team should get a chance to bat since the inning would not be complete. Edit: I had my facts slightly wrong in the Baltimore example. Baltimore led by 2 runs entering the 7th...

    May MLB game thread

    Seems like a lousy rule... it's only suspended because of the timing of Oakland taking the lead and being the road team. If they had already held the lead prior to that inning (or if it had been Detroit that just taken the lead) the game would be considered over. Keep it simple: 5 innings played...

    Keeping the Sky Up. What is going right?

    How about Chavis? Doesn't he qualify as an unexpected positive?

    Swihart traded to Dbacks

    I am not sure if the official scorer ever corrected it, but I was at the game where Swihart hit his first "inside the park" home run. I use quotes because it was really an outside the park home run. It was against the Mets at Citi Field in 2014. Blake hit the ball to deep left field where it...

    That'd be up the butt, Bob - Kraft Charged with Soliciting.

    So if the innocent bystanders are unidentifiable, what would claims of damages be based on? How would they be harmed?

    That'd be up the butt, Bob - Kraft Charged with Soliciting.

    In terms of "innocent" bystanders or 3rd parties being harmed by the release of the video , couldn't their bodies or faces be pixilated or otherwise made unidentifiable on the video? I remember watching the old Cops TV show as a kid and the producers on the show always managed to pixilate the...

    It is extremely frustrating that the Red Sox best outfield option in Triple A will never ever get a chance with the club. I do think that Rusney Castillo deserves another shot but won't get it due to his contract. His career will be a great what if.

    Building a Bullpen, 2019 edition

    I wish we had never activiated Josh Smith last week anyway. All the forecasts predicated that there would be heavy rain that night and the game would be postponed. Why not keep Lakins up in the majors getting experience until the next turn of the rotation? When Evovaldi's turn comes up , you...

    April 9, 2019 - RINGS AND BANNER DAY World Champion Boston Red Sox v. Taranna Bluebirds

    Everyone was worried about Tyler and the bullpen. They have been the onlly positive feature of this year's team.
