    Felger: Red Sox offered Mookie what he asked for, and were turned down

    They hated him so much attendance went down for the 3 years before he owned the club and the 5 or 6 afterwards?

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

    And, to compound that, Burleson, the runner, had no clue Piniella had no clue....could have been bluffing and caught the ball (it wasn't that much out in front of him, really); had Burleson known that, perhaps he could have left earlier and gone to third...Rice's ensuing fly ball was more than...

    Probably a very simple Excel question

    Another way is to have each worksheet represent a given ballgame. List all the players for each game whether they pitch that game or not (there will be some 0 0 0 s if you know what I mean). So, each worksheeet has "Riley", "Neko", etc. Then have a worksheet that totals up each of the...

    It never gets old - reflections on Oct 17-20, 2004

    Maybe the 2004 Sox should collectively raise a glass every time a post season series goes to 3-0 and the trailing team doesn't come back, like the remaining 72 Dolphins do when the last undefeated team in a given season loses.

    Down 3-0, 2004 vs. 2020 comp

    . ...and their bullpen fell apart too, save for Rivera (not like he was hit that hard in his two blown saves). Tom Gordon was a disaster, as I recall; and he was a very important guy.

    2020 NFL: Post Season Bubble in LA & Dallas?

    I think it has to be 2 sites unless they want to move teams from site to site after the first round. If two sites, three teams leave each site after the first weekend; and one team arrives (the team w/the best overall record in each conference). The other thing that complicates having...

    2020 youth sports what are leagues doing

    Decided to give hs (Mass.) officiating a try this fall, figuring that the cooler weather would make mask wearing tolerable. Which, I have to say, it is mostly true. One does get more tired running with the damn thing on, however. The two games I did there wasn't a lot of, if any, kids...

    What is this team missing?

    Depending on a 36 year old guy for major minutes is foolish.

    What is this team missing?

    Well, nit-picking on my part for sure, but not challenging that block call on Smart and/or not burning all his timeouts when the 3 jacking started were quite puzzling. Even though the block ended up only costing them a point, he could have spent the minute or two "suggesting" to his players...

    Roenicke to not return as manager in 2021

    Some horrible logic in there, Pete.

    ECF Game 6 - Tired of this %*#*

    Theis' return to the game was an absolute disaster. The game turned around completely when he re-entered; and the points given up all revolved around his man. And, most likely it wouldn't have changed things, but why, oh why, did Brad take his challenge home with him. That was not a block on...

    Down in hot 'Lanta to end this nightmare, part 1

    Their next center fielder, if there is a next one, is not in the organization now. A year or two ago, I would have said AB, but there's no way they can count on that guy presently. I think JBJ might be their best option.

    ECF Game 4--STILL MARCUS

    Actually, they won the third quarter last night, cut a 6 point deficit to 1. But they played so poorly the first 5-6 minutes of it that it felt like a loss (including a stretch where the Heat got 4 open three point looks on the same possession, followed by Crowder missing a layup; the lead...

    ECF Game 4--STILL MARCUS

    He isn't getting fired for basketball decisions, I would agree w/you. The only way he's gone is if Ainge perceives that the nucleus of the team is tuning him out, which happens all the time in the NBA. No one's made a case that situation exists presently.

    9/17 - Celtics vs. Heat, Eastern Conferences Finals Game 2

    Someone mentioned Theis did not play well, which, I'd say on the whole, was true. One play he DID make was a killer. Dove to the floor for a loose ball and corralled it. Had he just fumbled it around, there would have been a 24 second violation. Instead, it was ruled Boston had possession...
