    Getting Smart with Statistics

    On that note, this will always be my favorite Marcus Smart moment, sealing a victory against the Rockets by baiting the arch-flopper James Harden into committing two "charges." I LMAO'd seeing Smart give Harden a taste of his own medicine.

    Bobby Dalbec - What do we have

    After today's golden sombrero, Dalbec now has 30 K's in 54 AB. I don't see this going very well. He's making Joey Gallo look like Wade Boggs.

    Celtics-Raptors 2nd Round--Dethrone the Champs

    Credit to the Raptors for being tough as nails, they deserve it. However, I have lost all respect for Nick Nurse after watching this series. Literally all he does is whine for foul calls the entire game. I get that he's trying to give his team an edge, but it's unseemly for the coach of a...

    SD to acquire Mitch Moreland for Hudson Potts and Jeisson Rosario

    But we already have a Rosario at home ... :)

    SD to acquire Mitch Moreland for Hudson Potts and Jeisson Rosario

    Sometimes I think "with upside" is just a euphemism for "haven't shown anything yet." I'm finding it hard to get very excited about a prospect who hit .242/.372/.314 at A+ ball.

    Red Sox Trade Deadline Thread

    Yeah, I don't get why the Sox are entertaining offers for Vazquez, to be honest. A great team-friendly contract for a good catcher with a rocket arm and improving bat. Sure, you could plug in a defense-first JAG to take his place, but just remember how depressing it was every time Sandy Leon...

    Let's talk about this ballclub.

    Today, Mookie just tied the all-time record for 3-HR games, getting there 1000+ games faster than the other two who've done it as many times as he has. Jose Peraza almost got his kneecap busted by the first batter he pitched to in a 17-8 loss. Kevin Plawecki came in to relieve him. 2019 vs...

    How much have you watched so far?

    Honestly, for me it's just nice to hear RemDawg and Eck's voices in the background of whatever I'm doing, with a cameo from Guerin every now and then. The team itself has not been fun to watch, but at least if there were ever a year for us to suck, this one came at a good time.

    Celtics Sign Tacko Fall

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

    Here's an honest question, and I really don't have a strong position on it one way or another: Even if we have extra $ to spend for 2020, a chance to acquire some better talent, etc., is there even any point? This is starting to seem like a glorified spring training season anyway, and even if...

    Somewhere, Alex Verdugo is breathing a sigh of relief

    Chris Sale 2020 - TJ Bound and Down

    I hate to say this because I know it's not technically Sale's fault, but imagine if we had just taken that $29M/yr and used it to sweeten the pot for Mookie instead

    Nets and Atkinson part ways

    Something tells me a guy who's getting paid $37M to Netflix and chill in Brooklyn isn't too concerned about Kenny Atkinson.

    Red Sox Hire Chaim Bloom As Chief Baseball Officer

    Would love it if he could bring back Brockstar on a Moreland-like contract. I don't expect much of anything from Peraza at all, so that way you keep 2B warm until Downs is ready, plus have some flexibility to play him at other positions as well.

    Betts/Price to LA for Alex Verdugo, Jeter Downs, and Connor Wong

    In a kind of reverse Punto-trade nomenclature, if Verdugo and Downs turn out to be great, should we refer to this as the Graterol trade?

    2020 Rotation

    Wow, yeah, when you put it that way, it looks pretty grim. I hope the bullpen guys have put their work in this winter. We're looking at a lot of 3-4 IP starts.

    Betts/Price to LA for Alex Verdugo, Jeter Downs, and Connor Wong

    Hey, Mookie Betts rehabilitated the name "Mookie" for us so thoroughly that few Bostonians reflexively associate it with Mookie Wilson and 1986. Who knows, maybe J.D. Downs will help us forget all about Mr. Gift Baskets AND J.D. Drew all at once.

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

    Yeah, that's what I'm thinking as well. I would get taking a lesser offer for Mookie to "staple" Price's 3/96 to him. But at 3/48, couldn't you just literally give him away to some team in need of a starter and take back nothing in return? Wouldn't most teams jump at a heavily subsidized...
