The Yankees have one World Series since 2000. The Astros have one in their history. The Dodgers haven’t won since 1988. I’ll take a couple 3rd place finishes in between four World Series in 16 years.

all three of those teams are set up very well long term. our farm was already a concern, now there's questions about Mookie/JD/Sale long-term too.

and on that note I am taking a hibernation from baseball until Saturday. see you then for more pain.

Can’t quite tell from the boxscore: Did losing the DH mean they double-switched and Wright HAD to come out, or could he have finished?

Or maybe better question: Did substitutions in the bottom of 8th preclude Wright from finishing?

If it comes out that the Red Sox paid what a quality bullpen arm would have cost to splash their brand all over the new Godzilla movie, I will be ticked off.

You do realize that the movie studio PAYS THEM to use their licensed properties, like Fenway Park, right?

The Red Sox have not and will not ever need to pay a movie studio to use their stuff, especially not such an iconic ballpark as Fenway, which has now been featured in 13 movies, starting with Field of Dreams in '88 through Fever Pitch in '05 to Godzilla: King of the Monsters, with a bunch in between, both hits and bombs.

I'm hoping this was sarcasm but just in case... no, it's not why Dombrowski chose to stand pat at the RP position aside from the acquisition of Brewer.

Also I know most people understand this, but it's not financial penalties that keep teams under the top tax barrier (every team this year is under, every team last year was under except Boston), it is having your top draft pick pushed back 10 spots and your potential draft pool spending cut down.

Mostly sarcasm, because I know about the draft spots and the salary limit.

Partly pissyness, just because.

I am surprised that the studio would pay the Red Sox, though. Whenever I see brand placement in a movie, I picture cash going from the brand owner into the movie producer. I can't imagine there is any return on that investment.
