    Ah, my fault. I hadn't really been following. This one just showed up in my Facebook feed and triggered me.

    I can't wait to find out who the 47 players are that are better at baseball than Ken Griffey Jr

    Lou Merloni: Mookie asking price is 12 years, $420 million.

    I am being swayed by the Mookie is worth it camp. Not going all the way over the fence yet. 12 years would be risky if he was Mike Trout. Freak injuries can happen. If he really wants 12/420, he's not settling for 10/350 or 12/360 until he's sure no one out there is dumb enough to pay him. That...

    Lou Merloni: Mookie asking price is 12 years, $420 million.

    More and more, this feels like a forgone conclusion. It hurts when it happens, but the team will be better for it. If I knew Mookie would repeat 2018 numbers consistently, that's a bargain. But, he did it once. I've seen players do things once. I hope he succeeds, but that's too big a gamble.

    Kobe Killed in Helicopter Crash

    I want to go on record as saying I am listening. I really don't have a problem with luckysox' posts or the topic being up. It's really just upset this has to be a team a team b thing. The topic was inevitable, I really don't have a problem with it at all. It's the rhetoric and the talking-overs...

    Kobe Killed in Helicopter Crash

    Well in that case, I apologize. The internet is a confusing place. :)

    Kobe Killed in Helicopter Crash

    Thanks. And before someone quotes me to say I missed it again, don't worry, I got it. But thanks for the correction anyway. I will try not to confuse them in the future.

    Kobe Killed in Helicopter Crash

    Or perhaps a grieving only day. Maybe? I'm actually not upset it was brought up. It was your line that didn't understand why people would be upset. If you can't understand how it could upset people, then maybe you're not as empathetic as you think you are. This isn't political. No one was...

    Kobe Killed in Helicopter Crash

    You guys s both really need to stop assuming everyone you talked to is stupid. I wasn't aggreing with him, I turned his own words back to him. I stepped over his point so as not to get shit on my shoes. I'm out, either way. I said my piece.

    I understood your point.

    Kobe Killed in Helicopter Crash

    Correct. It's not. People are actually grieving.

    Kobe Killed in Helicopter Crash

    And I have zero doubt we will. When people are able to have a rational conversation about it. This is like asking a someone for money they owe you at a funeral.

    Kobe Killed in Helicopter Crash

    I honestly don't know what the fuck is wrong with a few of you right now. If you cannot understand the idea that some people are going to be browsing the site, see the headline, be in a bit of a shock and not exactly be interested in being reminded of his worst moments. You may have used these...

    All Betts Are Off: The Sox If Mookie Is Traded

    I think with cheating scandals and money crunches, combined with the level of competition in the division right now, I think there's no better time to fold and restock. With the caveat that I don't know what's out there for available talent, and that could throw off the equation. Will that...

    Sox talking Mookie trade with Dodgers, Padres - News & Discussion

    There exist trade options that involve moving Mookie Betts. This isn't one of them unless the prospects are the real highlight. I don't see any rush to moving him. I think this "interest" is to get the public to consider the idea of moving Mookie. They're setting the bar with the fans so we'll...

    Alex Cora fired

    I am somewhat comforted by the plausibility that Cora is still a stand up guy under the surface. But, it only means he really should have known better. It's hard to speculate on his future. I can see his name being mud forever, and I've seen longer-shot redemption tales. But, if he does ever...

    Alex Cora fired

    Well, that's the thing, though, isn't it? I mean, of course there will always be cheating in baseball. By people with enough shame to actually try to hide it. And the game survives because people don't realize it's happening. But they had to go and bang on trash cans in an era where billions of...

    Alex Cora fired

    It was a hot take. This whole thing has me all conflicted. I can only speak as a fan. And an honest person. I can tolerate the outside hate for the Pats because I genuinely believe it's wrong. This one bothers me. Not as much for what he was caught doing with the Sox. It's that now I don't...

    Alex Cora fired

    No surprise. It was their only move. And the right one. The thing is, it doesn't matter if it started as innocent gamesmanship. It doesn't matter if it wasn't the reason they won. The bottom line is, there will always be doubts. The further the Sox separate themselves from this regime, the...

    MLB’s sign-stealing controversy broadens: Sources say the Red Sox used video replay room illegally in 2018

    I'd look at more like an opportunity to. Regroup, come back a couple years removed with a better image, and a stocked farm
