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

    I agree that the year should be scrubbed. The protests without proper social distancing virtually assured the COVID-19 virus cases will increase over the summer months. I'm already beginning to worry about college basketball season and Christmas gatherings.

    Soup Goes to Nam

    Thanks for posting this. I have one of his baseball cards in my closet and see it every day. Coincidentally, my father, who was in the Battle of the Bulge, carried the same name.

    Best Red Sox Closer: Nominees

    Koji, Radatz, Paps, Kimbrel, and and Lowe. In order. But if Lowe gets to count, I would like to mention a reliever/starter who has not been mentioned yet. That would be Ivan "Ike" Delock.

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

    A truncated season beginning in late May or June is the best case scenario, I would guess. Meanwhile, have some good books ready to read. I might suggest this one: …...………………...………………………...

    2019-20 Offseason Discussion

    Thanks, it was interesting to read page 23 instead of starting with 24. My bad, but I will blame it on living in the central time zone.

    2019-20 Offseason Discussion

    I will be interested to read what posters think about the Kevin Pillar rumor. He would seem to be a good fit for next year if healthy.

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

    Most of us here root for the suits. None of us here knows what the future will bring. Betts has earned the right to decide how he wants to chart his own future. Anticipating each Red Sox Spring with optimism and joy will continue my own future regardless of who occupies the suits.

    SoSH namesake gets his due...

    And lest we forget it, in addition to this estimable site, "getting a horn" , coined by Baltimore's Mike Flanagan, is striking out six times in one game. Sam's name will, indeed, live forever in baseball history.

    Red Sox Hire Chaim Bloom As Chief Baseball Officer

    James and Dombrowski out with their missions accomplished. In baseball, as in life, there will be peaks and valleys and all one must do is move ahead with vigor and optimism. I , for one, have a good feeling about this hire. Take the baton and run, Chaim.

    2019 ALCS - Yankees vs. Astros - General Gamethread

    Happy schadenfreude day everyone. The game last night was the most enjoyable non-Red Sox game I can remember. Reading this thread today has been a pleasure.

    DD fired

    Strange wake up call. Who's next? Billy Beane? Brad Pitt? Think I may go back to bed.

    Red Sox non-star team (since 1975)

    Add Craig Breslow to RP list because of his high IQAR rating

    Price to the DL

    When I was in medical school, one of my older orthopedic professors said when he found a ganglion of the hand he would just pick a hefty textbook and smash the cyst. (I imagine he kept the book right behind his jar of leeches).

    Dave Dombrowski knows more than you do

    OK, just an idea which will hopefully never come to pass. If Sale continues along his present course as a starter and we are stuck with him for another four years because of the contract, does anyone think he could be become a reliever like Andrew Miller was in his prime? It could redeem some of...

    RIP Bill Buckner

    For some reason Billy Buck was the guest speaker at our monthly medical society meeting in 2009. To an audience of about 50 disinterested doctors and wives (most of whom didn't even know who he was) he spoke about his baseball experiences and the value of forgiving and forgetting. He was a good...

    2019 Opening Day roster

    What ever happened to Lin? Was he sent down as a backup utility in case someone gets hurt? He has his limitations, but does seem to have a knack for making things happen when he shows up. Just wondering
