    Just saw the score. I assume the rest of the starters are also sitting this one out?

    Craig Carton in talks for MLB Network morning show

    I find him hard to listen to. He's too into goofing around and being obnoxious versus talking about actual sports. It worked okay, and often quite well, in a morning show format but buffoonery is not what I'm looking for an afternoon sports talk show. Boomer Esiason had the ability to stop...

    Who should start for this team in 2021?

    "Six man rotation" and "openers" sound like the ingredients of a real recipe for mediocrity. The first gives lots of innings to basically replacement level players, while the later is going to tax a bullpen that is likely to be overused and not-that-good-in-the-first-place. Of course, with the...

    Red Sox acquire Adam Ottavino and RHP prospect Frank German from Yankees for PTBNL

    This is the first of Bloom's moves that hasn't left me feeling unfulfilled. There's some actual upside here in somebody that could be a part of our long term future in German, plus Ottavino who has the upside of a good reliever, something we haven't seem much of recently. I'm tired of the...

    Chelsea 20-21: Plastic Fans and Shiny New Toys

    It would be funny to see the press complaining about "their buddy" getting fired when, from the moment he was hired, they've been portraying him as an "in over his head" incompetent who hadn't paid his dues as a manger before giving him the keys to a big club and who only got the job because of...
