    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"...

    Gilberto Jimenez

    I couldn't find a thread on this kid. I really don't pay too much attention to the mL's other than the top tier talent that looks like they're heading to Boston within the year. Only 19 years old- just recently turned 19! He's got a decent report on Sox Prospects: I was just looking at the...

    Since we won't be facing them in the WS.... what NL team do you want to see there?

    Brew Crew! There's no way they will... so I'm picking Braves (all Boston connections).

    If not us... then who? Or.... Who is your preferred A.L. playoff team after the Sox?

    I've always like A's. I'd be happy if Tito can win one with Cleveland. Twins are just too unlikely and frustrating from their ineptitude against the MFY's for years.... I used to like the Rays but they've become too good and their fans don't deserve them. I live in ATX and Houston fans have...

    Playoffs? Playoffs!??!?!?

    Sorry Jim... .but I do wanna talk about playoffs (and especially the Red Sox possibly sneaking in). I'm proposing this as a sort of reverse magic number thread like we've had in past years when they either won the division or clinched a WC. Currently at 71-62 with 29 games remaining. 6 games...

    Red Sox 2b in aggregate 2019

    First.... I apologize that I don't have time to actually do the research this morning as I'm heading out the door and work in the field, not at a computer. Hoping someone else could pick this up... Wondering what the Sox aggregate 2B offensive stats look like this season in comparison to other...

    MIA JBJ

    A lot of discussion and hair-pulling in the Price elbow thread about JBJ. He's struggling... yet again... on possibly his worst and streaks of all time. Are the Sox stuck with him for the season? Is his defense good enough to compensate for his nothing-bat? There's some metrics out there...

    Rafael Devers, JD Martinez and the future at the corners

    I'm never too sure about starting any thread but since the season is nearly afoot, it seems like a good time to hear from posters here about the Devers, Martinez short term outlook and the handful of good prospects at 3rd. A lot of people are already prepared to move Devers across the diamond...

    Red Sox Post Season roster-ALDS- 2018 edition

    Rafael Devers- past, present and future

    Mods, obviously feel free to merge this with the other Devers thread, but it seems like this discussion here is a bit different. Anyhow. I'm curious what you all think Devers future, both short term and long term look like. After his explosive first two weeks in 2017, starting pitching...

    Mookie Betts appreciation thread

    I just love this guy like no other Red Sox since Nomar, Pedro and Big Papi. He's already in that upper pantheon.... joining so many others. Maybe Pedroia? I dunno.... This guy just has IT. Clown demon and all. Should the Sox break the bank immediately and get him long term as the face of...

    Hector Velazquez. Well, well, well.... What do we have here???

    Doesn't even have a page up at baseball-reference.com yet!!! Combining the strength and power of the Trojans greatest warrior and the most amazing Western painter who ever lived..... Hector Valazquez is on my mind. Anyhow..... appearing in 4 games so far. 2-0 record. 11K's and 3BB's in 13.1...

    Wherefore art thou, Blake?

    How long does DD and Cora stick with both Leon and Holt? Obviously with X out and Lin up.... it’ll be a while but this guy seems to be wasting away....

    Creating a Closer

    First..., I apologize for vagueness and a lack of supporting information. I'm sitting in my truck waiting for a building inspection to show up (8:30-11:30) so I've been catching up on SoSH via iPhone. Anyhow, the point I'm hoping to start here to get you smarter folks out there to explore and...

    What will D-Dom do before the trade deadline?

    I just loathe those types of nicknames. But anyhow.... lots of discussion about standing pat and going with what we've got or shoring up the bullpen and/or 3rd base via a trade or calling up Devers. I don't see a trade for the rotation happening but I'll add it here since it's possible...

    Is it too soon to discuss Ed-Ro?

    ....and say how good he's been so far with jinxing him?

    Moreland. Ain't no chump!

    I know... SSS and BABiP... but I'm loving this introduction. Unsustainable but....

    What to expect from Ed-Ro....

    First, let me say here that I'm here mostly to read everyone else's thoughts and analysis on All Things Red Sox. I don't have much to contribute.... Anyhow, I haven't seen much discussion about Rodriguez this preseason yet so I'm tossing this out here to hopefully pick up some of y'alls...

    Joey Batts in the Fens?

    Just a rumor from Yahoo Sports that he's "interested...". http://sports.yahoo.com/news/jose-bautista-interested-signing-red-044517151.html I'd personally pass on Bautista, as his last season was pretty unspectacular and he's definitely on the downside of his career but I could clearly imagine...

    Who is in your playoff rotation?

    Obviously Price and Porcello are no.1 and no. 2, not in any specific order... but then? The competition for a starting spot in the playoff rotation just got a little less clogged. While Edro had a pretty great start last night and has been "no. 3" quality since coming back, I think it has more...
