    July: Red Sox discussion, observations and trend tracking...AKA It's not all about the Benjamins

    Would Quantrill be a target? Not a fireballer, but has a history of decent bulk innings.

    Oh Hey. Baseball

    Or… perhaps he’s the kind of player that can’t fully thrive in a DH -only role.

    Oh Hey. Baseball

    Tbh, Masa looks completely uninterested in playing baseball. I dunno, maybe he feels isolated in Boston?

    Oh Hey. Baseball

    Tip your cap to a good call by the Reds… not a fan of Booser myself. But then again we only have 4 hits against the Red’s Danny McBride doppleganger so…

    Oh Hey. Baseball

    It’s just painful. Honestly. DFA

    Oh Hey. Baseball

    Yup. Kutter looking good. And yes, I hated the India bat flip.

    Oh Hey. Baseball

    The point is you put on Wong intentionally and you go left/left with abbot. I’m surprised he was taken out after 90 pitches but I should stop being surprised.

    Oh Hey. Baseball

    Unreal… 90 pitches… take him out because the spreadsheet says to.

    The TrevorEnding Story: needs shoulder surgery, out for the year (4/9 update)

    See, I completely disagree here. While this could be considered “flukey” it also could be that his body simply couldn’t take the trauma, yet someone who is 10 years younger might have avoided the same injury. It doesn’t make him a bad person or a terrible player, but at some point we have to...

    The TrevorEnding Story: needs shoulder surgery, out for the year (4/9 update)

    Well, true, but I think there was lots of consternation about Story when signed. Not so with Strider. what do u mean by my writing style? Mostly its errors and auto-correct for using my phone for posting!

    The TrevorEnding Story: needs shoulder surgery, out for the year (4/9 update)

    huh? Not comparable. Sorry if my wording made it seem like they were connected. Wasn’t linking the two. Story was had at a discount and bloom pounced because they were never signing Xander. Story was a second tier SS who hit overpaid by bloom. On top of that, he’s been injured for most of his...

    The TrevorEnding Story: needs shoulder surgery, out for the year (4/9 update)

    this is the play. If you want to keep D as a priority then you move RAF to SS and O’Neill to CF

    The Frailty of the Modern Pitcher

    This is crazy. Is the new market efficiency a group of knuckleballers?

    The TrevorEnding Story: needs shoulder surgery, out for the year (4/9 update)

    Sadly, this Story signing was bad from the minute the ink was dry. We will carry on, but super disappointing. I just saw Strider is getting an MRI… MLB is really having a tough time with all these injuries.

    The TrevorEnding Story: needs shoulder surgery, out for the year (4/9 update)

    Only pointing out that the guy cannot stay healthy and banking on him being healthy is foolish thinking. At what point do “freak” or “injuries beyond his control” become the norm and we accept that? …and I never said people were stupid… I love the optimism… but at some point you have to look at...

    2024 Lineup (What we actually have - no trade speculation.)

    Putting Duran in this group is silly. He may not be a “star” at the end of the day, but he’s clearly a MLB caliber hitter.

    The TrevorEnding Story: needs shoulder surgery, out for the year (4/9 update)

    Well, the good news is that he is “not injury-prone” like I keep reading here. Just freak injuries for him. Right? jeez. What a blow. Middle infield is going to go from a defensive strength to a question mark. Probably too soon for Mayer, though

    2004 WS Celebration

    I’ll be there and driving down from Burlington VT as well (daughter goes to UVM) Bought tix a few weeks ago after seeing the 2004 team was going to be there, plus the Wakefield memorial. Looking forward to it!!

    Agents of KAOS: Rafaela, Duran, O'Neill, Romy, & Blizzard

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who thought Duran should have tried to score. He was so far down the line. In fact, given the disengagement rules, I’m really surprised there hasn’t been more attempts to steal home.

    2024 Red Sox Spring Training

    Looks like Duran left the game today with a potential left foot injury. Same foot he had offseason surgery on ..
