    Betts/Price to LA for Alex Verdugo, Jeter Downs, and Connor Wong

    I see that a good chunk of Downs' hitting success came in the Cally league. Is that league still super hitter friendly? I still haven't recovered from the Lancaster JetHawks experience. Aaron Bates was HoF bound, man.

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    He hasn't swung a bat in 6 months and doesn't appear terribly close to doing so. His injury is mysterious to say the least.

    What about Brusdar?

    His standard 4-seam fastball appears to be very fast but not particularly special. It generated 0 swinging strikes in his massive 9 IP sample size in 2019. Also, the spin rate is pedestrian. His sinker, though, looks much tougher to hit. And he throws it very hard.

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    Seems like this is a fantastic trade talent-wise for the Dodgers. They get a massive upgrade from Verdugo to Betts and another pretty decent upgrade from Maeda to Price. The money is obviously important, but they just got MUCH better.

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    Brusdar Graterol is a fascinating name.

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    I'm planting my flag in the I HATE IT camp and I don't particularly care about the return. A generation's Yaz is gone because of the luxury tax. Gross.

    That's unbelievably close. Insane.

    Who was the most disliked Red Sox player acquisition ever? AT THE TIME OF ACQUISITION

    There seems to be some sort of alternate reality where El Duque and Magglio Ordonez played for the Sox. Although I do vaguely remember a proposed trade that involved Ordonez. Did that go through in your universe?!

    Whose Departure From the Sox Devastated You Most?

    Nomar, and nobody else has come close. Nomar began his career for the Sox when I was 10 and left when I was 17. He was my childhood. Everyone my age wanted to be him. I was devastated when he was traded and hated every rationale I read for the move. I mean, it worked out alright, but... (I'll...

    Kobe Killed in Helicopter Crash

    Sorry to highlight truther this one, but the overhead angle shows that he wasn't actually faking the throw in into Kobe's face. It's just a bad camera angle.

    Kobe Killed in Helicopter Crash

    This thread is moving too fast for people. The original posts detailing Kobe's past, uh, misdeeds, was in response to one poster describing him as a great human being. That's all. Slow down before you post, folks.

    2020 AFC/NFC Championship Games Thread

    Whoa, I turned the game off at 27-0 and I just checked out the box score. Not sure if I'm more surprised that the Packers have sort of made it a game, or that Jimmy G. has only thrown 6 passes!

    2020 AFC/NFC Championship Games Thread

    I want to know what that one dude was thinking going for the strip. Just tackle Mahomes and KC has to settle for a FG in all likelihood. The dude just punted away 4 points for the slight possibility of a fumble. Talk about a lack of situational awareness.

    Dudes just stopped playing. That's horrible.

    2020 AFC/NFC Championship Games Thread

    They showed a kid in those box seats wearing a suit. I don't know why I find this so strange. It's like seeing an alien in the flesh. I can't fathom my teenage self wearing a suit to a professional sporting event. It's unfathomable.
