Saw on reddit this collection of egregious non strike calls from this year. It’s remarkable how often umpires seem to miss the call when the catcher either gets crossed up or the pitcher misses his spot...
I wonder to what extent ownership has made a calculation that releasing Brasier/Pillar might actually alienate a significant portion of Sox fans (40%?) who tacitly agree with or even applaud what these players are saying. Deplorables like baseball, too.
Sadly, if they had just hung onto him maybe he would have been more willing to sign an extension amid all this covid business. Alas, it is what it is. I’d wager the Sox will have got most of his best years.
I’m happy with this. I’ll admit though I’m already seriously pining for Betts and hope the Sox make an aggressive offer next offseason. Maybe he’ll have a down year in the NL west and his value will fall a bit.
This is exactly where I’m at. I was bummed about losing Mookie but thought we were getting some promising pieces in return. I’ve totally soured on the deal now and hope they just kill it. Is there any way they can get under the cap while holding Mookie until the deadline?
Guest, I have a big favor to ask you. We've been working very hard to establish ourselves on social media. If you like/follow our pages it would be a HUGE help to us.
