    2020 Divisional Weekend Game Thread: Nevermore

    Watching the Titans play the 49ers in the Super Bowl will feel like watching a decent spin-off. Fuck it. I’m on board.

    Most Hated Patriots & Opponent Player

    Least favorite Patriot for me is easy: Reche Caldwell. Thanks to his two drops, the dude almost single-handedly cost us a win in the 2006 AFCCG. And, you'll never convince me that we wouldn't have destroyed the Bears in the Super Bowl that year. Least favorite non-Pats player: Gonna go with...

    Patriots fans, Yankees fans, and always being greedy for more

    At this point, I'm 100% invested in the Patriots' climb to the top of the mountain - six (or maybe seven) titles. After they won their first, I was just happy that they won one - especially as they were massive underdogs. When they won 3 out of 4 in the early 2000s I was happy that they had...

    Greatest Sox Defensive Players, by position.

    I'd consider Jimmy Piersall in CF. His defensive WAR is 5th best all-time for CF.

    Jurassic World 3: Where the Dinosaurs have Quad Injuries and Hate Their Shoe Deals

    I am in the “let’s see what we have in this playoffs right here” camp. If this team goes seven in the next round and wins, then takes the ECF to a game 6? I’d ask myself if adding a healthy Kyrie and Hayward gets me those last six wins. I’d say the answer is yes, and I give this team...

    Modern Records That Won't Be Broken

    Wilt Chamberlain also had 55 rebounds in 1960 - no one has come even close since the 60's, with the closest being Moses Malone's 37 in 1979. With the way the game is played today, I can't see anyone coming close to that.

    One Season or Fewer, Your LEAST Favorite Red Sox

    For me it's Craig Grebeck in 2001. The dude hit precisely one single and one double in 43 PA. I understand he was at the end of his career, and he was subbing in for an injured Nomar, blah blah blah. He sucked. He sucked hard.

    Race and the Red Sox

    So, with the usual "take this for what it's worth" caveat: My son has been taking hitting lessons with Larry Bigbie for years. He's one of the most genuine and nicest guys you'll meet. With this thread in mind, last Thursday I asked Larry what he thought about playing at Fenway vs other...
