    4G Android phone megathread

    Has anyone bought the Galaxy S20 basic version? I have an S9 and I have to decide in the next few weeks to either buy it or return it for a new lease. My S9 is fine but the battery is definitely not as good as it used to be. Basically my choices are to buy the S9 for $200 or lease an S20 for...

    Chris Sale 2020 - TJ Bound and Down

    It's not like TJ is the cure all for every elbow injury. Maybe wait to hear more before declaring that he needs it but is delaying it.

    Chris Sale 2020 - TJ Bound and Down

    To clarify, I was only responding to the comment that the main issue was getting under the cap. Whether they extended Mookie or not, I don't see how they could've done so even if they let Sale walk unless they would've still done the LA deal. So bottom line, I don't think it makes sense to...

    Chris Sale 2020 - TJ Bound and Down

    I'm trying to think this through. If they signed Mookie and didn't sign Sale, I assume they'd still have Price's contract on the books. They'd save 13m if they let Sale walk but they'd have a big hole in the rotation. So they'd have to replace Sale, pay Mookie his 27m, pay Price- how would...

    Chris Sale 2020 - TJ Bound and Down

    I mean, while Sale's contract may have been less than smart Mookie wanted $250m more. I don't think it was one or the other and they picked Sale over Mookie.

    Romo staying at CBS for $100-plus million

    17m for Romo? That's completely insane. Maybe they could find decent broadcasters for reasonable salaries and not have a commercial every five minutes.

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    Has anyone tried the Spectrum streaming option? Of course trying to get information about the package options and restrictions is impossible but it sounds like it could be a decent alternative. From what I've been able to figure out it costs about $40 per month including cloud DVR for the most...

    MLB plotting playoff expansion — with reality TV twist

    The unbalanced scheduled already makes the WC really dumb. To add two more wild cards with a head-to-head tie breaker is beyond stupid. In a sport where the most important person in the lineup changes every day head-to-head tie breakers are incredibly idiotic. It'll never happen but I'd pay...

    ESPN Is Pathetic

    Apparently Cone may replace Mendoza. I didn't think they could find someone worse but I guess I underestimated them.

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

    Ok. I thought you meant in total. Yeah it's like 75m total.

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

    Where are you getting 50m from? They save 27m for Mookie and 48m for Price.

    Sox talking Mookie trade with Dodgers, Padres - News & Discussion

    I bet the Hop has at least 3 open with different titles depending on the destination. So I'd definitely take the over.

    Yes, thank you. That was my point. Some do, some don't.

    Super Bowl LIV: Chiefs vs 49ers Game Thread

    I don't want to derail this any further but this is weird. I know many people from Newton who don't have a Boston accent.

    Super Bowl LIV: Chiefs vs 49ers Game Thread

    He's from Newton. That doesn't mean he has a Boston accent.

    Does Krasinsky really have a Boston accent or was he faking it?

    Lou Merloni: Mookie asking price is 12 years, $420 million.

    Well I think that's where the disagreement is. I don't believe his value is 400m. I understand the argument but I just disagree. If he wants ten years the AAV needs to be lower. He's not Trout, and he certainly isn't worth more than Trout.

    Lou Merloni: Mookie asking price is 12 years, $420 million.

    Trout's AAV is 35.5. Mookie is worth 4.5m per year more?

    Lou Merloni: Mookie asking price is 12 years, $420 million.

    I don't agree with that. If Mookie's primary goal was to stay in Boston like, say, Pedroia, he could accept 10/300 and it would be totally reasonable. He wants to get every last dollar. That's his choice. It doesn't mean offering him 300m was unreasonable. That's kind of nuts.

    Lou Merloni: Mookie asking price is 12 years, $420 million.

    Yes, Mookie is better than Machado and Harper. But considering that he'll be two years older, and Harper got 330/13 and Machado got 300/10, it's not reasonable to say that Boston should offer him 400/10 before he's even a FA. That's a huge increase whether you're looking at total cash or AAV...
