    8/5 — 27 days until tax reset

    RIP John McNamara

    It's amazing what 04 did to our collective mindset. Then throw in 07 for good measure, down 3-1 to Cleveland, Beckett on the mound, he was nails, the rest is history. I remember watching the Falcons Super Bowl with a group of friends and when they were down 28-3, I told one of my friends "Hey...

    RIP John McNamara

    Trust me; if you video taped it, disaster would have struck. My Dad used to come to my Yawkey League games, one year during the playoffs, my uncle from Arizona wanted him to videotape some of the games for him to see, my Dad told him no, it would be a total jinx, I hit a monsterous home run at...

    Covid and MLB

    Him saying we got caught with our pants down would be more appropriate if they broke protocol by going to a strip joint, no?

    I'd go with "Corona, to the champagne room", but hey, that's me.

    Yoenis Cespedes opts out of the 2020 season

    Only if they brought in JWoww and the pitchman for Sham Wow in as partners.

    Red Sox in the Toilet - 8/1/2020

    Oh great, the Red Sox get to face another slop throwing pitcher like the last night. I have no doubt, as in zero, as in a 1000% lock he'll get shelled in his next start, but last night as is almost always the case when we play those assholes, whoever they trot out looks like a combination of Cy...

    RIP John McNamara

    Yeah, the two strikes thing murders me; even worse, imagine being a player and being on that field with two outs, no one on base and two strikes on the batter, you're just waiting for that last strike/out so you can into the infield and celebrate. Been on the field twice in my life counting...

    RIP John McNamara

    Funny you mentioned Bob Stanley; when McNamara went to him and he came charging out of the bullpen, one of the people I was watching the game with said "Oh man, this is going to be great, a player with New England ties is going to be on the mound when they win the WS!!".........after the pass...

    Does it come with a rope so I can put myself out of my misery after I finish reading it?

    RIP John McNamara

    The Seaver injury definitely hurt, no doubt about it, he would have gotten the ball in game 4. And I agree with your idea of starting Boyd in game 7 but him being on a short leash with Hurst being the first man in. As much as 2004, 2007, 2013 and 2018 have taken the sting away from 1986, it's...

    If it's Arnhem, the gashouse gorillas are the 9th and 10th SS rolling across the bridge..............

    RIP John McNamara

    I would have taken my chances with a cracked out Oil Can vs a cooked Hurst.

    RIP John McNamara

    Or maybe he gives the ball in game 7 to Oil Can Boyd vs Bruce Hurst on three days rest. Never should have come down to a game 7 anyway......or a game 6 for that matter; coming home up 2-0 with all the momentum, if only Tom Seaver had not been hurt and he got the ball in game 4. Oh well, what's...

    How much have you watched so far?

    Thanks for sharing both of those stories. The 1970 Bruins, 1975 Red Sox and the 1985 Patriots are my three favorite Boston sports teams ever; understood, neither won a championship, but I'll never forget 1975, nor will I forget 1985. My Dad took me to a number of Bruins games in 1970, we had...

    How much have you watched so far?

    Your screen name always reminds me of the Summer of 75, the Red Sox got Denny Doyle in mid June, he soon ripped off a 17 game hitting streak as that team marched towards a WS match up with the Reds...…………..and I'll never forget him getting thrown out at third in game 6, bases loaded, no outs, on...

    How much have you watched so far?

    Ditto and that applies to you as well, don't sell yourself short. The game threads prove that misery does love company, but at least we can laugh about it; 2004, 2007, 2013 and 2018 helped in that regard. What a treat it's going to be watching this team circle the drain while the gashouse...

    How much have you watched so far?

    I've watched bits and pieces of all the games, but I have read through all the game threads ,which have been highly entertaining and in many cases, hysterical. So the game threads have been entertaining; the actual team, not so much.

    Hey, it's one more than our pitchers have; come on down!!

    7/28 vs. Mets: Who are these guys?

    If the team can assemble a pitching staff by pulling people off the street, we can do the same thing for game thread starters.
