    5/19 Sox Astros

    It's been pretty fluky. Sale's given up 2 ER or less in 6 of his now 10 starts, including his last two where he went 8 IP, 1 ER, 14 K in Baltimore and the 7 IP, 2 ER, 17 K performance against the Rockies, both No Decisions.

    May 12 Seattle at Fenway Part 3 "Mother's Day"

    Fortunately there's AL and NL awards, because Alonso on the Mets and Paddack on the Padres have been incredible.

    May 12 Seattle at Fenway Part 3 "Mother's Day"

    Totally agreed. There's a reason they don't play baseball in the rain. This doesn't feel safe for fielders, pitchers, or batters.

    May 12 Seattle at Fenway Part 3 "Mother's Day"

    Wouldn't mind if they pulled the tarp on and called it. Bullpen could use the rest, crowd looks miserable, Bruins are starting, etc.

    Michael Chavis, SS: 2014 MLB Draft 26th overall

    I don’t about “shopping him” around, but it was reported they were “listening” to offers. A word distinction worthy of 1,000 words by Rev. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2018/12/report-red-sox-taking-offers-on-rick-porcello-others.html

    This has to change.

    As someone who roots for a team that famously blew a 9 game Division lead in late August in '78, and a 9 game Wild Card lead in September of '11, we know crazier things have happened. The only thing crazier than this horrible April is the fact that it's still April. May May bring wins along...

    Totally. I believe Glasnow is on a pitch count, but getting deep into the Rays pen in this game is a good thing for us. Let's put up a crooked number and sweep these annoying Rays.

    4/21 @ the Trop

    I agree. I think he's gotten significantly better in the 10 years, for a number of reasons. Between him and Eck I make a point of listening to NESN... unless Sean McDonough is in the EEI booth.

    Starting Pitching 2019

    To be fair only Oakland was expected to be a .500+ team. PECOTA had the Mariners at 75 wins going into the season, and they spent the off-season dumping their veterans (Cano, Diaz, Paxton, Cruz). It would be a little surprising if they won 82+ games.

    Celebrating What Is

    It was completely bizarre. I just found this oral history from Vinateri and Smart about the end of that Super Bowl, and while Vinateri’s awesome it still doesn’t explain what the hell Smart was thinking. Here’s the closest he comes...

    2019 Patriots: Post-SB Roster Thread

    Totally. He’s only 31 and I have a hard time imagining he’s worse even now than the Hollisters of the world. Seemed like a fun guy and handled the media environment here expertly.

    2019 Cowboys: And now for something completely different...

    Definitely strange, but it has happened: Marshawn Lynch and Randy Moss (at age 35) both did it. NFL.com has a list of other examples: http://www.nfl.com/photoessays/0ap3000001019429

    MLB/MLBPA discussing '19/'20 rule changes: Universal DH/no sept callups/3 batter rule

    Precisely this. I feel bad reposting, but if I could I would make sure everyone interested in MLB could read this article: He goes through the games, and although it’s just one game being compared against just one other game (although super fun to remember some of those guys from ‘84), comes...

    HoF: Who is In?

    Hmm. I hadn’t thought about that. Let’s compare him to our newest Hall of Famer DB: Ty Law. Law played for 15 seasons, made 5 Pro Bowls, 2 All Pro teams, and won 3 Super Bowls (although he didn’t play much of the ‘04 season). He had that signature Pick 6 in his first Super Bowl. Gilmore has...

    SB53: We Need Links Thread!

    I know. Just devastating. The PFW guys were talking about that moment today, but as they point out: what’s McVay going to say? Kid seems overwhelmed by the moment, but there’s still 4 minutes left in the Super Bowl and the Pats have the ball pinned at their own 4. If the Rams could have gotten...

    HoF: Who is In?

    Good offseason topic. I totally agree on Gronk. No brainer. From 2011 to 2017 he was the most physically dominant, game changing TE I’ve ever seen in the NFL. The PFW guys spent a long time debating this a few weeks ago on their podcast, and they claim he’ll be limited by his stats, which...

    SB53: We Need Links Thread!

    I don’t know, I remember him being pretty thrilled after all of the Suoer Bowls. At the end of the 2004 Super Bowl win against the Eagles when Rodney came down with the game sealing INT, Belichick jumped up like a kid in celebration: And in 2016 when James White broke the plane in OT he and...

    2019 Patriots: Post-SB Roster Thread

    Thank you for noticing. It really does seem like the cover page should read "Mrs. Crabapple's Class." Take a look at the last page. Like, is this serious? "If a kid cannot become 6’2” then they can look at the average height and weight of other positions." "Statistics is like magic"

    2019 Patriots: Post-SB Roster Thread

    On our roster they're like Andre the Giant. ... Yeah, I'd say so. This paper has a lot of fancy math and says NFL average for a WR is 6' even. Cord Patterson is 6'2" and is always described as "big," although I guess that's also because he's, well, big.
