    2021 Draft

    It's interesting, isn't it, how a team will sometimes have one position that they rarely ever seem to get right in drafts? A parallel would be the Patriots and wide receiver -- in that example, their track record is so poor that it almost feels like they've given up on trying.

    JBJ in 2021

    Any chance Verdugo could handle CF? I noticed that the Sox tried him there for one game last week.

    2021 Draft

    I know what you mean. I'd sure like to see a little more of Robinson Leyer and Kyle Hart. I'm sure Hart's injury isn't anything he can't pitch through. Also, this has been a long year for Xander and Raffy. They deserve a nice rest, and we need to see what Tzu-Wei Lin has left in the tank.

    Getting Smart with Statistics

    On that note, this will always be my favorite Marcus Smart moment, sealing a victory against the Rockets by baiting the arch-flopper James Harden into committing two "charges." I LMAO'd seeing Smart give Harden a taste of his own medicine.

    Bobby Dalbec - What do we have

    After today's golden sombrero, Dalbec now has 30 K's in 54 AB. I don't see this going very well. He's making Joey Gallo look like Wade Boggs.

    Celtics-Raptors 2nd Round--Dethrone the Champs

    Credit to the Raptors for being tough as nails, they deserve it. However, I have lost all respect for Nick Nurse after watching this series. Literally all he does is whine for foul calls the entire game. I get that he's trying to give his team an edge, but it's unseemly for the coach of a...

    But we already have a Rosario at home ... :)

    SD to acquire Mitch Moreland for Hudson Potts and Jeisson Rosario

    Sometimes I think "with upside" is just a euphemism for "haven't shown anything yet." I'm finding it hard to get very excited about a prospect who hit .242/.372/.314 at A+ ball.

    Red Sox Trade Deadline Thread

    Yeah, I don't get why the Sox are entertaining offers for Vazquez, to be honest. A great team-friendly contract for a good catcher with a rocket arm and improving bat. Sure, you could plug in a defense-first JAG to take his place, but just remember how depressing it was every time Sandy Leon...

    Let's talk about this ballclub.

    Today, Mookie just tied the all-time record for 3-HR games, getting there 1000+ games faster than the other two who've done it as many times as he has. Jose Peraza almost got his kneecap busted by the first batter he pitched to in a 17-8 loss. Kevin Plawecki came in to relieve him. 2019 vs...

    How much have you watched so far?

    Honestly, for me it's just nice to hear RemDawg and Eck's voices in the background of whatever I'm doing, with a cameo from Guerin every now and then. The team itself has not been fun to watch, but at least if there were ever a year for us to suck, this one came at a good time.

    "A lot of people my size" is a bit of an oxymoron

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

    Here's an honest question, and I really don't have a strong position on it one way or another: Even if we have extra $ to spend for 2020, a chance to acquire some better talent, etc., is there even any point? This is starting to seem like a glorified spring training season anyway, and even if...

    SoSH truly is the smartest message board I've ever come across. :)
