    Dan Shaughnessy: Taking a dump in your mouth one column at a time

    So this is funny/embarrassing Just happened to pop into this thread for the first time in a while and was dropped into @soxhop411 's post above -- Shaughnessy, with his doom-shaded glasses, believes the red hot Red Sox should be sellers, not buyers. I rolled my eyes and read the next several...

    Who's Next if Cora Leaves?

    I was focusing on teams with a potential manager need, a competitive talent level and/or willingness to spend, and a GM without long-established credentials that might not be interested in manager input. The exception to the latter is Dombrowski, but I was guessing he and Cora already had a...

    Sports Cards Mania

    @Bergs @Traut @Fishercat @KFP — thanks for your thoughts/advice. I don’t know exactly what the buyer paid for this card from the eBay seller, but I suspect it was less than $30, for a card putatively graded somewhere between GVG. I couldn’t make out the kind of dots described in the article on...

    Sports Cards Mania

    I just received a 1980 Topps Rickey Henderson that is feeling like it may be a fake. The print is blurry (especially the name at the top of the card, but the whole front) and the card stock feels just a little thin. Came to me in a TCDB trade — the original card sent by my trading partner was...

    Sports Cards Mania

    Anyone else get a box of 2024 Bowman Chrome Sapphire Prospect via Topps Montgomery Club? My son and I each bought a box at $300... kept one and sold the other on eBay for $650 after fees. The box we kept was pretty underwhelming. The auto was Giants infield prospect Walker Martin. Appears to...

    New lease on the Rham: Patriots extend Rhamondre Stevenson

    A lot of the comments here directionally remind me of the thread about the Chris Sale contract extension: a.) Sale is a great pitcher, b.) that seems like a lot of money and is probably an overpay, and c.) WTF, we have plenty of money and see 'a' above. There are key differences, of course --...
