    The Value of Belichick

    On a serious note, it feels like this kind of puts to bed that old saw that gets thrown out there that BB will retire when Brady does. I mean, does this look like a guy REMOTELY interested in retiring?

    Jaylen Brown re-signs for 4 years/$115 million

    Why are people looking to move Jaylen Brown? 23 years old, averaging 20.4 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.1 assists, on 49.4% shooting (38.1% from three), an athletic freak with a lot of upside still, very good two-way player on a good contract. Those are the kinds of players we're looking to trade...

    The Value of Belichick

    Maybe it's just me, but I really think Belichick loves his job.

    So will this put his 2021 in jeopardy?

    Trade for Hurst, sign Hooper, and suddenly the Pats have one of the best TE tandems in the league.

    Reserving Judgment... But What Did the Sox Do and How Bad Will They Get Hit?

    Honestly, the NFL, at this point I’m sure, has found nothing on the Pats. But instead of exonerating them, they’re just never going to mention it again and hope that people forget. Or they’re content to let the Pats kind of twist in the wind a little and have the public believe it was Spygate 2.

    I just want the Red Sox to win games. If an "opener" is the best way to do it, what do I care?

    2019-20 Offseason Discussion

    How does using openers lengthen games? Usually pitching changes from openers come in between innings. Which take precisely NO extra time at all. edit: never mind, I see that this has already been covered

    Alex Verdugo - on-field discussion thread

    Just for fun....though I think Mookie will have a big year, it's entirely possible that his true level is not at all like what he put up in 2018. Here's last five seasons: 2015: 18 hr, .291/.341/.479/.820, 117 ops+ 2016: 31 hr, .318/.363/.534/.897, 133 ops+ 2017: 24 hr, .264/.344/.459/.803...

    Joel Embiid: "being the best player in the world, I just intend to keep coming out every single night and just play hard and trying to get wins and just go out and try to win a championship". So he has that going for him I guess...

    Jayson Tatum Needs His Own Thread

    So where are we going to end up ranking the #1 for #3 (Tatum) + pick trade in Celtics' history? Obviously Fultz has made himself a player in the NBA that deserves some minutes, so I'm happy for him, because it wasn't looking good there for a while. But Tatum has become a star, perhaps on his...

    NY Spring Training Discussion

    Honestly, what the Yankees did last year in light of the unbelievable rash of injuries they suffered was nothing short of incredible. If they have the same degree of injury problems, that would seem to defy the odds, but so would overcoming them again.
