    Garrett Richards' simplified delivery

    Don’t know if you saw any of the telecast,, but Remy and Eck were commenting similarly, but focusing more on the speed of the delivery, that Richards had slowed up his motion substantially compared to the start against the Jays. The one or two times that they went to video, it was apparent...

    Three True Outcomes, The Bobby Dalbec Thread.

    I am in agreeance with this thinking. From the last several years of following Dalbec in the minors, this is part of the package. The contact skills are overall below-average, the patience is above-average, the power is well above-average. He is going to have patient at-bats and then swing and...

    Garrett Whitlock

    The Ottavino deal makes total sense on its own. the Red Sox got a player who will help them this year for only $, which they had. They also got another roll of the the dice on Frank German, a guy who could be a middle or later inning reliever with a live arm, and adds to your pitching stockpile...

    Is ___________ a Hall of Famer?

    Kimbrel? Could end this year or next as top 10-ish in career Saves, pitched in big markets, won a WS, 7X All star. The closer thing is weird, but Kimbrel is going to have a good resume and counting numbers. I dont know if any of the other closers of the era get in, unless Joe Nathan is favored...

    Pats QB Options

    If they draft Franks late, it could also allow him to be monitored by the Red Sox, who drafted him in the 31st round in 2019. He threw off a mound at instructs that year, I believe, hitting 94 after not having pitched in years. Or they could draft him, let him see he maybe won’t make it, cut...

    Formula 1 - 2021 - Chasing down Lewis?

    Came to realize during the race, that I will be rooting for Hamilton to beat Max, even if I want the aces competitive. More and more, I know Max can drive, but I don't like him. Some interesting stuff I have seen post-race: -Ricciardo had some floor damage from the early bump in the back from...

    Formula 1 - 2021 - Chasing down Lewis?

    Yes, I had Mazepins finish flipped with Callum Illot’s somehow. I thought Mazepin had been no worse than 4th, in what looked like a good group of drivers from the little I saw last season. Norris looked strong, which is great, wish Ricciardo had been racier on his last set of tires, but...

    Formula 1 - 2021 - Chasing down Lewis?

    The impression I had of Mazepin, not deeply researched to be honest, was that he was sort of like Stroll, a paid-for driver, but qualified. The “joke” about sexual assault this off-season and everything since have made it impossible to want to support the team. it would be a relief if it didn’t...

    Formula 1 - 2021 - Chasing down Lewis?

    I think it was a decent race, surprised by the good performance of the Ferrari cars. There’s enough thrown in by the differing tracks and conditions, that I expect we see even more action from the teams who could finish 2-6. Tsunoda got after it. Great debut and confident passing in what looks...

    Formula 1 - 2021 - Chasing down Lewis?

    For the first race or even more if you like it, just let it wash over you. If you end up following a driver or team over a race or multiple races, cool. It’s a weird competition with a bunch of intricate stuff happening, don’t sweat it. And remember that the cars are insane, marvelous pieces...

    Formula 1 - 2021 - Chasing down Lewis?

    I don’t think this is in response to the thread title or anything, but want to chime in on Hamilton. I did not like him when I first started following F1, 5 years ago or so. Being on the obviously best team and having his buddy Justin Bieber trackside was not going to get my rooting interest...

    Formula 1 - 2021 - Chasing down Lewis?

    I was reacting to the 2nd episode of this season of the Netflix show, which is more brutal when you know how things play in the future. In the flurry of last year, to look back and wonder if things come out different if Hamilton doesn’t spin Albon in that first race and he gets a podium. Albon...

    And Drive to Survive Season 3 has dropped on Netflix. Poor Alex Albon.

    Formula 1 - 2021 - Chasing down Lewis?

    First race of the season is this Sunday in Bahrain. 23 races this year on the schedule. Lots of team name and color changes to match all the driver movement. Is the Hamilton’s last year and is Mercedes vulnerable? Will pairing Sergio Perez with Max give Red Bull a shot at the constructor’s...

    Spring Training Games

    Duran is, by reports, average to below in Center field right now, a lot due to reps as an OF. His speed is an asset covering for positioning and routes. It’s a bit of an odd thing, per the SoxProspects folks, as if he makes sense I center with Verdigo in right, or in right, though he may not...

    Good baseball podcasts

    And to update - Effectively Wild rolls on with Lindbergh and Meg Rowley from Fangraphs. Sam Miller returned since the last recommendation of this podcast in the thread, but now is barred from appearing until his ESPN non-compete expires. I have enjoyed and empathized with Meg’s sense of...

    Red Sox Hire Chaim Bloom As Chief Baseball Officer

    https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/soxprospects-com-podcast/id309680652?i=1000506047023 I haven’t listened to the Barstool interview posted above (I may not, given mixed feelings on Barstool). Chaim was on the SoxProspects podcast recently and I thought was honest and clear about Covid...

    Stop hoarding TP(E) - the what should the Celtics do with the TPE thread

    Continue to pardon some of my cap ignorance, but would carrying a multi-year commitment bone the team moving forward? Would they over the cap enough they would lose the exceptions the could otherwise use to add? I was under the impression that you could go over to sign a guy on your roster, or...

    Stop hoarding TP(E) - the what should the Celtics do with the TPE thread

    Thank you. That made the most sense, as otherwise saving it for midsession made the remainder enormously more valuable. I’m not a hard core hoop-head, and I don’t think they go this route, but I have been checking in on Derozan and Aldridge on the Spurs. Both would be helpful complementary...
