    The Ringer: MLB quietly installed a humidor in Fenway Park

    A humidor would supposedly decrease home runs in a stadium where it’s used. If one was used in Yankee Stadium, everyone’s idol Aaron Judge would likely hit fewer dingers, and that would be a tragedy that America just can’t risk in these troubled times.

    The Ringer: MLB quietly installed a humidor in Fenway Park

    You can’t put one in Yankee Stadium because then America’s Heroes will hit fewer home runs and then everyone will be sad!

    8/10 Red Sox v. Rays 22 days until tax reset - Mound is Tilted

    Whenever I see the name Willie Adames, I read it as Willie Aames.

    "Roenicke" is German for "slow hook."

    July/August game thread

    A's hitters were hit 5 times in the series, Astros none. A couple articles I read online noted that Fiers pitches for the A's, and was the one who outed the Astros, but didn't come out and say that was why they were hitting the A's so often.

    Brian Johnson released

    The answer to this sort of question is always Dylan Covey.

    Crying about everything until the playoffs game thread.

    The Bruins had a bit of a cakewalk in the regular season. Like a little angel food cake, with the top glaze, had their moms mix up the eggwhites and the vanilla. Cut it with a knife or a small spatula, through the batter, releasing air bubbles and bake, light as air, virtually fat-free? FUCK...

    Let's talk about this ballclub.

    The next 8 games are against Tampa and NYY. At the end of that we'll have a much better idea which direction this season is going. Tampa hasn't been great this year, and we are only 3.5 behind the Yankees right now, but I'd be pretty surprised if we won more than 2 or 3 of those 8. It'd be a...

    Red Sox 2020 Roster Thread

    Congrats Chaim on finding a worse pitcher than Weber. Covey has always been horrendous and always will be horrendous. 8 games in a row against NYY and Tampa coming up soon, so maybe this is a subtle way of aiming for the #1 draft pick.

    8/7 - Raps

    IMO, this team is the best in the league when they move the ball like they did tonight and play defense like they did tonight. The question is, how often in the playoffs will they do both of those things in the same game? It's really hard to play your best on both offense and defense in the same...

    Alex Verdugo - on-field discussion thread

    LHB who can go to left field with power can really enjoy themselves with Fenway Park as their home stadium. May Vertigo continue to hit the heights like that for a long time.

    East Qualifying and Round Robin Game Thread

    I don’t like either team but am really looking forward to game 5 between these two.
