    Would you feel safe attending a game at Fenway tonight?

    I asked for and received a full refund on the season ticket in Pavillion. Too tight; no vaccine. However, i think they may work out a decent protocol in EMC, and would attend after asking questions.

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

    Boo hoo for the billionaires. Honor your guarantees. If you decide you can’t afford it, cancel the season. Frankly, we’ll survive. (Which is what they really should be worried about).

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

    I'll take the refund. My worst case scenario was somehow these games would be rescheduled in the freeze of the late Fall. 10% isn't enough to take on all the uncertainty and I can't imagine feeling comfortable enough in 2020 to attend a game (hope I'm wrong). Good year to reset the cap and get...

    (When) Will the Season Start?

    Couple of NY fans are less patient than me. Suing MLB for refunds. https://mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/idUSKCN2232F9

    Red Sox Greatest Bunt

    Mientkewitz put down a nice bunt for an insurance run in 2004 ALDS. I remember appreciating it. Made the score 9-3, so not a huge moment in sports history.

    (When) Will the Season Start?

    MLB needs to set a timetable for addressing this. They have our money and it’s starting to feel like they have no intention of giving it back. I’d like some portion of the season to be played to reset the cap. But at this point I’d MUCH prefer to simply watch on tv. I have some hope (though...

    Tickets go on sale Friday: How excited are you about the 2020 Red Sox?

    Well, here's some data. OD tickets are currently on sale and plenty are left after 2 hours. I bought OD tickets yesterday. To me, this seems a lot like 2013 where the team has some some good offense despite trading a marquee player. Pitching seemed thin back then too, and they then proceeded to...

    Our ownership group

    Boston is my home and I love it. However, it is a provincial place that inherently distrusts outsiders. JHenry trying to build empathy citing his love for Musial just won’t fly. And the fact that he’s right about the Betts trade is downright infuriating to this crowd. Last year sucked, the Sox...

    Thank you David Price

    It surprised the hell out of me to hear that Gordon Hayward has a higher salary than Price. He was our best playoff pitcher in 2018 and 2017. Great team player. Lightening rod for the Boston media. I doubt he stays healthy for much of the next 3 years, so I'm ok with the salary dump. But he...

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

    This. Essentially got two young players with significant upside and gave up 3-4 months of Mookie. I liked Price more than most, but the next 3 are not pretty. resets are tough. This one may be one of the easier ones. Still a ton of offense on the team and pitching was/is always the issue.

    Whose Departure From the Sox Devastated You Most?

    Francona. What a terrible Sept that was 2011.

    Who will be the next manager?

    My vote is Roenicke for the year. Unless something amazing happens, you're not going to get more than an interim manager this year at this date. Next year two great managers may be available: Hinch and Cora And yeah I think MLB is just trying to protect the business. Blame it all on a bench...

    May The Best Team Win...

    Why don’t we just settle all games by a poll, since the actual results are so arbitrary? Of course the 2013 Sox were better. The Tigers gave up two (2) late grand slams, and made late errors in both of those games to lose. That is some poor playing.
