    Jon Lester announces his retirement

    I don’t think this is accurate. Looong history of issues. https://www.pitcherlist.com/why-curt-schilling-has-no-place-in-cooperstown/ But there was disagreement about whether he was qualified at the outset, on his performance (I thought he was)...

    Because Schilling disgraced himself before the voting started?? Honestly, comparing the two seems… unseemly.

    Eh, I went to Game 2. Lester coulda beat that spring training lineup Roberts trotted out there…!

    I see a lot of similarities between Morris and Lester.

    Love the guy, but Lester isn’t a HoFer. We’ve named others not in. Orel Hershiser? However, he’s more of a HoFer than, say, Harold Baines. His postseason record/accomplishments are phenomenal. I can easily see a vets committee admitting him.

    Soler is what they hoped Franchy could be. But yeah, he was gahdawful in KC last year but turned things around significantly in ATL.

    I recall that Lester was in the Santana deal for about 12 minutes, and that internal staff convinced the brass to pull him back before the Twins circled back on a trade including him. Thankfully.

    1/6 - Wow another game (Wild)

    Finally watched the replay. Basic question: Is Frederic going in for the hit or for the puck? Pretty clear to me that he is over focused on the hit and ignores the fact that the puck is right there. Never makes a play on the puck. So, if you’re a Wild or non-Bruins fan, you’re going to see...

    Also, my JD question was tongue in cheek, but he actually was a better offensive player than Manny, year v year. That’s a tough choice for bad D starting OF!

    Seriously, which of those closers do you want handling the 9th, if you have to go with one? I think it’s Koji.

    I might take 2007 Wakefield as a swing pitcher/RP over Kimbrel just to allow us to f*ck with teams more! (Although then we’d need Mirabelli at C…)

    BJ, it looks like you’re looking at good fits for the bench, yes? Also, were you looking only at regular season stats or factoring in playoff performances? And is JD your late inning defensive replacement for Manny? That pitching staff btw does look ridiculous.

    Yeah, JBJ’s best role on this team is as a defensive oriented 4th OF. Any offense first OF would be helpful. Schwarber… Suzuki is the best overall option I think.
