    W.S. Hangover Cures: The Devil is in the Details...

    Repeating (in baseball) is never easy. If it was, someone would've done it since the last millennium. How Cora, DD, et al, will go about seeking the elusive cure for "the hangover" should prove fascinating and worthy of its own thread (unless the Dopes disagree). Please keep the emotional...

    Catch as Catch Can...

    Cora has stated that the Sox are unlikely to carry 3 catchers again this year. So, who stays/goes and why?

    Let's Talk Exten$ions...

    The (once-again) agonizingly slow marketplace for high-end free agents, coupled with the Sox having numerous key players with the ability to test next offseason's market makes this a fascinating period to ponder if any extensions will get done now or during the season. There's also the fact...

    How Deep Into October Do the Sox Have to Go For You to Consider '18 to Have Been a Success?

    Hanley DFA'd (5/25 Update)

    It's been suggested in other threads that there should be a separate Hanley thread, so I'm taking the bull by the horns. There's been some wildly varying opinions on what becomes of Hanley in 2018, from DFA'ed before camp breaks to hitting 3rd in the order. It should be an interesting ride...

    Lavarnway DFA

    Not exactly a sexy topic (with everything else that's Sox-related right now).  But I figured the guy at least deserved a thread:  http://hardballtalk.nbcsports.com/2014/11/25/red-sox-designate-ryan-lavarnway-for-assignment/

    Will the Yankees Make a Move on Lester?

    Not surprisingly, the "Premature...Lester" thread has revealed some marked polarity with regard to the MFYs.  Some would "pick the Red Sox as presently built (with 52 OFs) 100x times over than the Yankees."  Some feel that the "craziest" thing on the thread is "that there appear to be people...
