    Trade deadline

    There is a reason why when the scouts show up for early work all the Yankees minor leaguers had names on the back of the jerseys. Scouts wanted to see who they were looking at. Let's see how this looks down the road.

    First time baseball coach

    I'm finding this thread pretty fascinating to see all the challenges and positives from all the other coaches...I coach a 10-12 Little League team. Won our first game of the year on Thursday. We are now 1-6. Good win since it was against a team from our own league that beat us 17-5 the first...

    Should the Red Sox Bring Back Alex Cora as Manager?

    Bloom came to Boston thinking Cora is the manager. Then he wasn't. I guess if he thinks Cora is the answer he brings him back. I am sure he is doing his due diligence on other candidates that he thinks will be a good fit.

    2020 MLB Draft Thread

    In one of his early starts this year DiValerio beat at the time No. 24 Ohio State. Not sure if that means anything. But right around the time DiValerio was going to agree to a deal with the Red Sox, the organization had Chris Sale call him to talk to him about what a great organization it is to...

    For me personally this is a pretty interesting thread to follow. As full disclosure, I work in the sports department at a newspaper with my primary beats being high school sports with some college stuff thrown in here and there...I live in Pennsylvania where based on our state (county) near New...

    MLB 2020: We're Playing, but We Can't Agree on Anything

    Per the draft, have to consider the fact that spring sports kids retain eligibility next spring...Hence, seniors can come back for another year and so forth. Will be interesting to see how many high school kids go, juniors in college go, JUCO kids go or seniors go...Guessing we won't see as many...

    2020 youth sports what are leagues doing

    I feel your son's pain...As a double whammy for me, I am a sports writer for our local paper so I have no "live" sports to cover and have been shifted over to helping out with news as well as balancing some sports features..Unfortunately, the area I live in has had two deaths this week because...

    2020 youth sports what are leagues doing

    Still here in Pennsylvania and the PIAA, the governing body of high school athletics still has not canceled the state basketball playoffs. Last game was played on March 10 and we are only in the quarterfinal round. Quite honestly, the spring sports season is in severe jeopardy and there are...

    MLB 2020: We're Playing, but We Can't Agree on Anything

    Lots of moving parts here. They can either stay in camp, go to home cities or simply go home. That leaves pitchers looking for places to throw, guys looking for places to hit. With schools shut down, it's not like they can go back to their local high school or college fields and have guys throw...

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    I'm in the shit or get off the pot group. We have to think about where does David Price report this week. How about if Mookie decides to show up early. Where does he go. What happens if this deal isn't finished, and Price shows up, throws one baseball and feels a pop in his elbow? What happens...

    Who will be the next manager?

    I think McMillon would have a very difficult time with the day in and day out dealings with the media that the job requires.

    Cora in line for major suspension?

    Not singling you out; there are multiple other posters saying Cora tainted the 2018 Red Sox. I'm not concerned about you singling me out and if you were to disagree I would appreciate the conversation going forward...My feeling is that Cora was in Houston, Houston got busted...Alex came here...
