    MVP of 2004 Postseason

    I was actually asking about the 2013 Cardinals... perhaps not clear in my post... man. But now had some time.... even 2013 Cardinals had 97 wins and were 1st in NL Central.

    MVP of 2004 Postseason

    Not sure about the '13 Cardinals being pushovers though..... I don't have time to look it up right now, but even though they had a bad regular season, they had some incredible talent on that team in the starting pitching department. Ortiz was insane that series.... the rest of the offense was...

    MVP of 2004 Postseason

    Changed my vote from Folke to Papi. It's somehow just stuck in my head that that's what to expect out of Ortiz... so it doesn't seem as much of an achievement. Par for the fucking course for that guy....!!!! After those two, I'm going with Lowe over Schilling. Out of the pending FA's that...

    Bigger Cog in the Yankee Dynasty...

    Who had the most punchable face of that era? Paul O'Neill hands down. Not even close.

    Retired African American baseball players on race, baseball, America

    I don't blame him.... Boston is still chock full of racists. It's definitely not as bad as when I was a kid but it's still a horribly racist city (I think most of them are coming from the 'burbs though now). Wouldn't it be nice if players could say that they didn't want to be traded to Houston...

    Yeah no.... fuck him. Bigoted shitbag.

    Whoa. I've only great things about Hunter... .what has he said or done that makes him a "bigot"?

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

    Any asshole that complains about "civil liberties" and "vaccinations" in the same breath is a Shitstick. No... I'm not going to go to any packed anythings until there's either a vaccination or a massive drop in infections (and I'll be skeptical of the latter)..... so absolutely no to very...

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

    Even if this "season" gets somehow played out for something resembling a regular season and we somehow walk away unscathed (unlikely) from here on out from another Covid-19 wave.... baseball, sports in general, will not be the same. The financial hit and the level of confidence- unless there is...

    Least Favorite Red Sox Heroes

    I could care either way.... but a lot of this stuff is about some sort of vague sense of what "values" certain players "embody". Drew embodied a certain strain of conservativism that appeals to certain types of fans. Those same fans that love Drew will also often complain about other types of...

    Least Favorite Red Sox Heroes

    Drew was.... .just so goddamned fucking boring!!!! I don't hate him... but I couldn't stand the way so many people said he played and acted "professionally... the way it's supposed to be played", because whenever I hear that I always am prepared to hear the follow-up be something about how all...

    Least Favorite Red Sox Heroes

    Shilling. No doubt. The worst. Is he a nazi? Well no.... he's pretty close. Would he have been one had he been alive in Germany in the 30's? Without question. Would many other people that condemn Nazis? Probably too...... I'm half Jewish (well... full if you go by the whole matrilineal...

    It never gets old - reflections on Oct 17-20, 2004

    I was expecting this to be the plan.... and was perpetually in shock when it never happened. I was watching this game at my local pub in Brooklyn- mix of good natured Yankee and Sox fans (and Yankee hating Mets fans) and EVERYONE there was asking the same question every time any MFY batter was...

    Strat-O-Matic season simulation- We win the opener!

    Can we game thread these and bitch about how the manager has blown bullpen management and we'd be undefeated if he'd have half a brain.

    Red Sox Greatest Out/Putout

    I just watched this... man... Kimbrell!!!!! WTF happened to him???!??!?! He just turned into garbage! That was stressful... .I think my shingles are back!

    2020 Rotation

    Perez looked good today.... I'm feeling optimistic about him. Eovaldi is still a worry every time I see him throw though.

    How will the Sox do in 2020?

    Good lord.... when I say I'm "bad at numbers" I'm not joking. I should have started the poll low and worked upwards in wins rather than backwards! Do you realize how difficult it is to count backwards!?!??!? It's not.... I'm just that challenged. Anyhow.... Really thinking around 81 wins-...

    How will the Sox do in 2020?

    I scanned the threads looking for something like this but couldn't find it.... I'm seeing this season as a "welllllllllll.... maybe things will break right and we'll be in the thick of the race and could possibly make a mid-season deal to address the glaring weakness (SP, duh!) but likely not"...
