    Most exciting plays in Red Sox history (for the Casual Fan)

    I took the casual fan part to mean essentially you don't really need context beyond "hey, here's this really awesome play and why it was awesome in 5 seconds", which is why I went with the Beni catch, not only was it a great catch, but it's the only play that was going to end the game either...

    The Game Goat Thread: Wk.6 vs Broncos

    The Titans also had Henry, a functional offensive line, and a qb/wr combo in an offensive that isn't still trying to figure out what it does and doesn't do well because they just switched to a totally new offense for the first time in over a decade, they probably don't need those practices as...

    Week 5--Broncos @ Patriots (maybe)

    the part where purgatory is really a thing in the nfl and teams expectations don't turn on a dime from year to year

    Week 5--Broncos @ Patriots (maybe)

    The titans practiced secretly during the time they were supposed to be off for health and safety reasons, the pats voluntarily canceled a practice that the league didn't require they cancel for the health and safety of their players, so yeah

    Revisiting the Xander-at-shortstop debate

    All of this is off topic though, to answer the question, I think until they know what Dalbec is then they can't really move X anyway because Dalbec needs to play 1st since JDM needs to DH

    Revisiting the Xander-at-shortstop debate

    In his "crash" year, while including the terrible start, he still put up what would have been average 1b offensive numbers

    Revisiting the Xander-at-shortstop debate

    It was followed up by a fine year despite the lost season that you called a crash

    Revisiting the Xander-at-shortstop debate

    Unlike definitively stating that his current bat is below average for a 1st baseman based on 60 game rolling averages?

    Revisiting the Xander-at-shortstop debate

    I'm not saying may-august is his true talent, I'm saying the entirety of his 2019 season likely is, which seems reasonable since for the majority of the shortened season of 2020 he put up similar numbers

    Revisiting the Xander-at-shortstop debate

    You called his results based on "a hot streak late in the 2019 season", who knew that May-August was late in the season and not the majority of the season?

    Revisiting the Xander-at-shortstop debate

    He really didn't just have a hot streak late in 2019 though Month by month ops+ in 2019: 109 167 132 191 126 103 That's a 4 month stretch midseason where he crushed the ball, surrounded by a bit of a slow start and a bit of a slow finish In 2020 he had a 49 ops+ in the 8 games in July and...

    Revisiting the Xander-at-shortstop debate

    He's only played 392 games, that "hot streak" in 2019 makes up a huge chunk of his career thus far. He also started absolutely terrible this year and then was a very good hitter for most of it, not sure why he needs a mulligan. It's very likely his true talent bat is what he did in 2019 even if...

    entire o-line, between injuries and covid, having good wrs doesn't help much if there's no time to find them and no threat of a traditional run game

    going for 2 now completely irrelevant, but I'm sure it still won't stop people from questioning it after the game if they lose
