    Vin Scully has passed away

    Back when that Red Sox Nation membership started in 2003 or 2004 (don't remember?), the $15 or $20 annual membership came with a login to MLB Radio online. The first thing I thought of was 'wow, now I can tune in to hear Vin Scully on the Dodgers call whenever I want, that's worth the price...

    Watson to Cleveland

    0-16 Browns forever, please.

    Astros acquire Christian Vázquez for Enmanuel Valdez and Wilyer Abreu.

    Dammit, rare is the Sox catcher that can stick for a lot of seasons. And dude looked crushed when he first learned of the trade.

    Watson to Cleveland

    2 more games than maybe/possibly/not likely arranging for the miniscule deflation of a few footballs. Sounds right.

    The Ringer

    Maybe you confused Daisy Chainsaw with Tripping Daisy who had their one hit "I Got a Girl" in 1995? We had a nice record store on campus that had a decent used CD selection. So I'd just have to wait some months after the one-hit-wonder of the moment, and then would find these CDs used for $5-8...

    The Ringer

    That link has a lot of good information but YIKES at this first sentence:

    Clickbait Trade Rumors Thread

    Maybe that would have made more sense before the universal DH, but as the rumors of the Mets interest in JD show there are a whole lot more buyers. As you said he is an upcoming FA so whether that outweighs getting twice the potential trade partners as far as return IDK...

    Kevin Durant Sweepstakes

    It doesn't even have to be the Nets who leaked it. If Boston wouldn't be his first choice, KD's camp could also have incentive to leak the C's offer to try and nudge the other teams involved to submit their best/more valuable offer to the Nets. Conversely if he in fact has the Celtics as his...

    Kevin Durant Sweepstakes

    Business-wise, Kanye went from an underground hip hop collective to producing for Jay Z to being worth $7 billion vs Jay Z's $1.3 billion (Source: Forbes). Can't argue with that. But the man is so erratic I would not feel comfortable putting part of my livelihood in his hands. Or having a...

    Kevin Durant Sweepstakes

    I would temper point #2 by saying that the Celtics have not won a title yet whereas the Warriors won the championship and lost in the Finals the 2 years prior to KD arriving. And the C's were not perceived as a slam dunk to make the Finals besides Five Thirty Eight or whomever had those crazy...

    Kevin Durant Sweepstakes

    KD did spend 8 years in OKC which is not a "sexy" NBA city and pretty much only left due to the chemistry with Russ deteriorating and the stagnation of the franchise. I wouldn't lump him in with the same mindset as say LeBron, when it comes to choosing cities. He seems a little more concerned...

    Offseason Rumors/News

    Agreed. What GS showed was KD was comfortable (in theory) putting his ego aside for championships. Which he certainly does on the court, not so much off the court where he is quite sensitive over his place in the league. My concerns are more with durability than fit, so I wouldn't want to...

    Jaylen Brown, Year 7

    Anecdotal and I didn't chart the possessions or anything, but seem to recall when Smart and White were on the floor concurrently with Jaylen he had so many more catch and shoot opportunities.

    Jaylen Brown, Year 7

    It would help my (love) handles if I worked out like this. To be fair, based on the Grant Williams interview last week he said Brad and Ime just told the team flat out to not pick up a basketball for 3-4 weeks after the Finals. The strategy seems to be #1 to go on vacation and rest, #2 get...

    SoSH Golf, 2022

    What an opportunity to play the Old Course fresh off the Open, nice.
