    World Series 2018--Red Sox vs. Dodgers

    I actually thought that barring a double switch with Bradley/Benintendi when EdRo comes into the game (but somewhat understandable if AC keeping options open for game 4 starter), that Swihart was EXACTLY the right guy to PH in the 6th inning. You have one out, no one on against a righty that is...

    Lineup in NL Park for WS

    I do not doubt in the least that the Sox are entertaining the idea of Mookie moving over to 2B for the WS. They have 3 days to work him out there between now and the Game 1 and another off day before Game 3...so if the move is made they will do it with a certain level of confidence.

    Is Trout HOF worthy right now?

    I think that as long as he gets to the ten year mark, he's in...although if he limps through the last part of his career, it may take a few years for him to get into the HOF. Ask Chuck Klein http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/k/kleinch01.shtml

    Xander Bogaerts: Silver Slugger and Herald of Galactus

      The Tigers are well aware of the batting title implications.  If anything, the fact that they are out of the race may focus them even more on individual goals at this point.  Unless Cabrera goes down with an injury, I believe that he will get at least the 502 PA needed so as not to invoke the...

    Post-Mortem

    Mort needed to get out in front of this shitstorm.  He is the Judith Miller of the NY Times to Kensil's Scooter Libby on WMDs.  Miller took a lot of shit for her being used, but she's still a reporter.  Mort would still be a reporter if he retracts...even if he doesn't name Kensil by name.  The...

    Red Sox DFA C Dan Butler

    Plus this is January.  The Sox will have options in Pawtucket (other than Swihart) come Opening Day.

    Kevin Youkilis retires...

      Or...keeping the GG Youk at first, resign Adrian Beltre, and kept right on going...I'm in the camp that believes the move back to 3b led to his hastened exit from the game due to injury.   The myopic obsession the FO had for Gonzalez still confounds me (and don't get me started on Lugo!)

    The Great Carl Yastrzemski

    Did someone say Yaz Bread?    This is a thread started to praise the man that more than anyone else, reignited a long dormant love affair between the fans and the team in the Fens.  IMO, there is no Red Sox Nation without Yaz and his heroics of 1967.

    Edes: JBJ down to AAA, Betts up

    If Pedroia passes his concussion protocol tests, just what kind of long-term health risks are we talking about here?    Now saying that, I believe that the Sox should be showcasing all month, and that the kids should be looked at every position, including Betts at 2b.
