    10/22 AlCS Game 6– I’m Jose Melendez, and I’m starting this thread.

    We have direct agency in the early Oct. YED, the thing that makes baseball OK once the Sox are done.....I don't like the remaining teams much, but there will be no #28 for the MFYs, so my baseline of a peaceful easy feeling continues (though the last 3 games sucked).

    It's right where Devers hit one against Verlander in 2018 G5 ALCS. The Crawford Boxes giveth, and the Crawford Boxes taketh away.

    I do not know of any “Bernie,” I only know of “Peanut head.” I do miss people calling him “Peanut head.”

    Fair enough….and too bad, unless he can find a way to improve.

    ALCS 2021: Red Sox vs. Astros Discussion Thread

    The huge double play ball was an at'em ball rocket right at Bogarts, and I wonder if we're having this conversation if it is 6ft to either side of where it was hit - so I think this is Sawamura's last pitch in a Sox uniform. Ottavino has no doubt been shaky, but has a history of being effective...

    10/11 - ALDS vs Tampa. Game 4.

    The only thing that bothered me on the replays was the Sox streaming onto the field while the ball was still in play. It wasn't a walk off bomb or a play like 2004 ALCS G5 where the outfielder conceded the run. I don't like it.....stay off the damn field until the ball is no longer in play. In...

    ALCS 2021: Red Sox vs. Astros Discussion Thread

    On your last point, Whitlock threw a total of 15 pitches over 2 innings. When he got out of the 8th throwing only 9 pitches it was not a hard decision. If Whitlock had thrown 20-30 pitches to get out of it, we would have seen Sale.

    Finally that kid plays like a kid and not a 10 yr vet.

    The equivalent of baseball's Tuck Rule saves the day? ....though I'm with Smoltz; since in 50 yrs of watching baseball I've never seen that.

    Cowboy Joe West Rides Off Into The Sunset

    This, 1000Xs This - and as far as I’m concerned they NEVER overturned calls, either. MLB was asking them to huddle up on close plays when an ump thought he might not have gotten a good view, but the huddles always looked like meetings to figure out how to defend the initial call, since that was...
