    2022 COVID Impacts on the Team.

    Agreed. On a related note, perhaps it’s too early to make this call, but the first two games in the hardest portion of the season do not bode well. I hope I am wrong…

    Jarren Duran: Improving in His Second Shot

    Wow. $152M from the Yankees ($15M/WAR) out of $174M total career earnings. Red Sox paid $1M/WAR. Ellsbury clan set for generations.

    7 Burning Questions

    It's September 3rd. The Sox are tied for the last WC spot 1) Who is your primary 1st baseman? Franchy 2) Is James Paxton in the rotation, the bullpen or on the DL? Just made 1st start (activated within the last week) 3) Assuming health, is Chris Sale performing better or worse than last...

    Chris Sale aiming to return

    These kind of quotes make me wonder if he’s not gonna be back at all this year? 96 mph fastball or no… I really hope I’m wrong. Because he really is more like a sack of …something else… at this point.

    WCQ 2022: Qualifiers for Qatar's Questionable Quagmire

    Qualifying through absolute shithousery - in the finest Aussie tradition of Stephen Bradbury et al… they’re calling substitute keeper Andrew Redmayne “the grey Wiggle”. Awesome! View: https://twitter.com/sachk0/status/1536646699049156608?s=21&t=kKjBaLwX7k4kw_9gOVV9iA And this… View...

    Here’s hoping they wrapped him back up in his cotton wool and put him away really really carefully…

    Alex Cora-- what do we have here? Perhaps the best manager in baseball.

    Red Sox don’t have a history of long running managers - only five managed for more than five years. Joe Cronin - 13 seasons - 1071-916 Terry “Tito” Francona - 8 - 743-552 Pinky Higgins - 8 - 560-556 Bill Carrigan - 7 - 489-500 Jimmy Collins - 6 - 455-376 Cora is young enough to pass all these...

    Bullpen ‘22

    So we can’t use Houck back to back, but it’s Ok to use Robles back-to-back-to-back? Because that was his third game in a row… and the Herald is reporting he was just off the IL as well. “Robles was out two weeks with back spasms, then returned to the Sox in Anaheim and pitched an inning...

    How to get back in this thing

    Nice. I posted the definition of “meltdown” in the bullpen thread. When a player decreases his teams chances of winning by more than 6% by his appearing in the game. Edit: based on the fact that Robles blew the save after having to pitch 3 days in a row after spending two weeks on the IL with...

    Bullpen ‘22

    I had to look it up, but to clarify, shut downs and meltdowns are opposites. A shut down is when a player increases the likelihood of his team winning by more than 6%, and a meltdown is the opposite. Here’s the Fangraphs blog: https://blogs.fangraphs.com/shutdowns-meltdowns-saves/

    Bullpen ‘22

    Just posted same tweet in another thread. Sorry not original… but it bears repeating. The great 2022 Red Sox bullpen experiment appears not to yet be working.

    How to get back in this thing

    Looks like the bullpen coughed up a hairball in the bottom of the ninth. Rovin I think this must qualify somehow as a “bonehead loss”. View: https://twitter.com/redsoxstats/status/1535865265665232897?s=21&t=oEnu5dRbeTXQkgUu1TC6_A
