    Feats of Mookie

    He's no longer a Red Sox, but he's still my favorite player in baseball. Different board, same purpose - let's talk about how great Mookie is (for as long as he continues to be great, and then even when he's not). Mookie's current 2020 stats: fWAR: 1.8 (3rd in MLB, 10.4 per 150 game pace)...

    Super Benintendi

    With the ongoing Mookie Betts splooge-fest thread, I thought I'd start a thread for Benintendi where we can analyze his 2018 performance. In the midst of the offensive onslaught the Sox have unleashed on the league so far in 2018, Beni's contributions have seemed muted so far. Qualitatively...
