    Romeo Langford - Pick #14

    My bet was on Beltre.

    Pats Draft Rd.2/38: DI Christian Barmore

    I wonder if the delta between college production and pro production, both up and down, for a player going to the Pats might be related to the emphasis BB puts on other aspects of the game? For example, and I'm just spitballing here, maybe Michel in college isn't asked to place much emphasis on...

    Pats Draft Rd.4/120: RB Rhamondre Stevenson

    That level of excellence on ST puts Bolden's roster spot the one most in jeopardy. If he could potentially fill the roles of Michel as backup lead back (is that an oxymoron) AND Bolden/Burkhead (as an RB who can play ST), then that is HUGE value from a 4th round pick.

    C's pick Aaron Nesmith #14 overall

    Oh, c'mon, that level of dislike doesn't even make it into the Top-25 here on SOSH. Maybe not even Top-10 here in the Port Cellar.

    First time baseball coach

    I think I would have gotten it wrong. (Would have said “runs.” Do I need to turn in my SOSH membership?)

    Pats Depth Chart: an Early Look

    I would think they can dump Stidham to the PS without too much worry of losing him (or replacing him), in the event of injury hitting Jones or Cam

    Pats Depth Chart: an Early Look

    Looking at some of these 53-man rosters, I realize that there is almost certainly going to be a trade or a surprise cut in the DBs. There are 7 legit starting level vets, for what is 4-6 regular spots: Gilmore, JCJ, Jones, Mills, DMC, Phillips, and Dugger. Considering that DMC and Gilly tend...

    Grade the Pats Draft: How Did BB/Nike Do?

    I'm giving it a B+. The depth of their roster meant that they would want to reduce bites at the apple, which they did a bit. They seem to have avoided any of Bill's usual head-scratchers. They got a couple guys who had reported value above where they were picked, and seemed to avoid any major...

    Ernie Adams: The Last Dance

    From what I've been reading lately (also currently reading Ian O'Connor's book Belichick), there are a lot of former Patriot players and employees who say pretty much the same thing.

    First time baseball coach

    We are having a practice tomorrow to do exactly that. It's only 8 of our 11 players, as the 3 who play travel ball are all playing a doubleheader for that team. Our main concern as coaches, more broadly speaking, is that it’s like we have two teams: one team that needs to learn how to...

    Ernie Adams: The Last Dance

    I love the stories of him (in Halberstam’s Belichick bio, Education of a Coach) at Philips Andover being all geeked out when the son of Steve Belichick showed up on campus.

    First time baseball coach

    Update: We lost our game last night, 4-2. Their first run scored because our third baseman didn't tag out their kid stealing third even though our catcher gunned him out by about 10'. Their final run scored when our other catcher skipped a throw by the SS (probably a catchable play), but...

    Thru the month of April

    I too have been stymied. (And the second question was clearly meant tongue-in-cheek)

    Pats Draft Rd.4/120: RB Rhamondre Stevenson

    Reminds me of Derrick Henry, especially the stiff-arms.

    Thru the month of April

    But how does it compare to Aprils, historically? And how does it compare to Aprils during a pandemic, in a year after there were no minor leagues?

    Pats Draft Rd.2/38: DI Christian Barmore

    I think you can reasonably give them credit for cap management relative to an impending cap decrease since around mid-summer 2020, when it was probably clear to most that revenues were going to be way down. Really ever since tagging Thuney, they were pretty circumspect in their cap management.

    Pats Draft Rd.3/96: EDGE Ronnie Perkins

    I know his timed speed scores weren’t elite and I’m not sure how his measurements line up, but his highlights remind me of Jamie Collins.
