    Thank You, Jackie Bradley Jr.

    I've had what I thought was an irrational love of JBJ since his debut. I marveled at his prowess with the glove and maintained a hope that he would break out as a hitter with his hot streaks becoming the norm. Reading this thread made me realize how much he is appreciated by Red Sox fandom, and...

    Thank you, Petey: Dustin Pedroia announces his retirement

    Dustin is one of my all time favorite players, and I'm glad he played every moment in the bigs in a Red Sox uniform. It's just too bad his career ended the way it did. Here's wishing Dustin a Hall of Fame life to go with his Red Sox Hall of Fame career.

    Confessions of a Confused Brady Follower

    I started the season ambivalent about TB, but I found myself wholeheartedly rooting for him with the Pats out. The fact that he is still doing it at 43 shows what an amazing talent he is. Let's just hope the Pats can get a competent starting qb next year.

    The Game Goat Thread: Wk.6 vs Broncos

    I don't see how the goat can be anything but covid 19. The announcers called it: the Pats had 2 practices in 2 weeks, and the Broncos had 2 weeks to practice for the game.

    Let’s predict the 2020 Red Sox record

    I decided to be optimistic and went with 31-35, but expect them to be a mediocre team on either side of .500. Here's hoping Eovaldi can stay healthy for a short season and a few of the scrubs catch lightning in a bottle.

    Pedroia has "significant setback with his left knee"

    I love the "F- yeah!" he gives after seeing the runner is out. Hopefully he comes back as some kind of coach. Thanks for the laser show, Dustin.

    Should the Red Sox Look into Punto Pt. 2?

    Still, those innings have to come from somewhere, and Price is the most likely of the injured 3 to be healthy and effective, IMHO. I'm sceptical the Sox can get a comparative pitcher for the money saved since they'll probably have to chip in money to get someone to take Price. Better to see what...

    Should the Red Sox Look into Punto Pt. 2?

    Unless it's a lopsided trade, the Sox should hold onto both Betts and Price. If 2 out Price, Sale and Eovaldi are healthy and pitching close to their norms, the Sox are contenders. If they aren't, the Sox aren't contenders, and you can still get something for a half season of Mookie and...

    2019 Game Ball Thread: Wk. 15 at Bengals

    Gilmore, Gilmore and Gilmore, with honorable mention for Michel and Harry.

    2019 Game Goat Thread: Wk. 14 vs Chiefs

    The offensive line. KC's defense is middle of the pack to poor (15th in dvoa), and the line looked like a turnstile. I shudder to think what Buf's D is going to do. Hard to judge Michel or Brady when the line's so craptastic.

    Green Fields of the Mind

    This is tough to read this year, even as I've found my attention stray from the Sox to the Pats. Let's hope we can read it a month later next year with Mookie still in a Sox uniform.

    2019 Dolphins: Can’t Even Tank Right

    With average luck and basic competence, the Fins should be a decent team in 2-3 years with that windfall of picks. As a Pats fan, I hope they don't, but as a football fan, I'll enjoy watching it.

    2019 Dolphins: Can’t Even Tank Right

    Thanks for the answers. I can see paying for the comp pick if they have the money. But Clowney is good enough to hurt where they pick in the 2020 draft, which might make a big difference if Rosen isn't the answer.

    2019 Dolphins: Can’t Even Tank Right

    I don't see how Clowney makes sense for the Phins. They're probably at least three years away from contending, and that assumes either Rosen or next year's draft pick is a legitimate QB.

    2019 Pats: Roster Projection 1.0

    Stidham looked good. Great back shoulder TD pass and generally sharp throws. If he keeps this up, Hoyer could get traded to a team like Philly for a late round pick, freeing up another spot for a WR on the bubble.

    Keeping the Sky Up. What is going right?

    It's April. Sox will be in the hunt come September, despite the dreary start to the season.

    Celebrate What Is: Non-star Player Who "Stepped Up" in Big Moments aka Malcolm Butler Trophy

    I'll second Troy Brown, the first player I thought of when reading this thread. That forced fumble in the Chargers game was right up there with the Butler interception, just in the AFC championship instead of the Superbowl.
