    This thread is gonna be pretty funny when the Sox win the Series this year.

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

    I kind of agree with you in principle, but it's a slippery slope. If Curt Flood and Marvin Miller don't lead the charge, the owners are still paying ball players relative peanuts today in a system rigged to keep it so. It seems fair for workers to get the top dollar they can. Particularly in...

    Thank you Mookie Betts

    Thanks for everything, Mookie! It was fun to watch you play all the time, and it will probably be a while before the Red Sox see another performance like your 2018 season. You'll probably be too expensive for 2021, but it would be great to have you back!

    Thank you David Price

    Was so happy for him when he won ALCS 5. And mowed them down after the leadoff homer in WS 5. Reminded me of Garnett's "I knocked the bully's ass out" moment. And I echo the sentiment that he was WS MVP that year. Thanks for the effective pitching throughout and for getting the monkey off your...

    Chris Sale 2020

    I know what you mean, but I'll argue he finished the 2018 season about as well as could be expected. :D

    What about Brusdar?

    Sox re-sign Moreland

    Hey I thought he was a goner for sure, nice! Let's get some more well-timed, RISP 2-bags from Mitchy.

    Whose Departure From the Sox Devastated You Most?

    Having become a fan in '03, and acknowledging he shot his way out of town and was not always a great human being, I was really bummed when Manny left. Bombs and mid-double-play high fives. Looked like he was having fun most of the time.

    MLB plans to remove marijuana from banned substances list for minor leaguers

    Why is light drinking definitively better (or healthier or less morally corrupt or whatever) than light smoking? Are you equipped/informed enough to make that judgment?

    Commentator evaluation: Joe Buck

    Gave him a 4. His ALCS and WS '04 calls, his call of Ortiz's slam in ALCS '13. I think he's a solid announcer who is rarely sanctimonious and fills time pleasantly. Good at his job.

    Should the Red Sox Look into Punto Pt. 2?

    It would be sad to see him go, but I'd understand it. It's a reasonable enough move, financially, if the player return in the potential trade is satisfactory.

    All-Time Favorite Baseball Teams that Weren't Your Team

    Late 80s, early 90s Rangers. Specifically end of career Nolan Ryan. Never knew if he would walk the park or throw a no-hitter. Learned to love nightly baseball as a kid growing up in Texas with those teams, left watching sports behind during my teens, came back to really enjoying it daily with...

    What was the most appealing WS match up of the decade?

    Agree with the standard pick so far...both in terms of pre-hype and what actually happened, Cubs/Cleveland. Best single game might be that series's Game 7. But probably the 2011 Rangers/Cards Game 6. One strike away twice and Freese breaking hearts. Incredible rollercoaster.
