    Benintendi to Royals for Franchy Cordero, Mets RHP prospect Josh Winckowski, and 3 PTBNLs

    He has been hitting pretty well the past week or so. Not a pretty picture for Sox fans when Franchy is really struggling and may be heading to Worcester for a stint. If this was a 1:1 trade there would be more noise. But it wasn’t, so the jury will be out for some time.

    The AAA Sox Stadium Thread: Where Ever They May Roam

    I get the Worcester hate from the Pawtucket fans, but my understanding is the stadium is the most expensive minor league field in the country and is on schedule. I saw the roster yesterday and am looking forward to seeing Durran play while sipping some excellent beer from Greater Good.

    Red Sox to have fans at Fenway to start 2021

    I’m not the one on the hot seat here to provide details of their risk profile for you, but I would consider going to a ballpark sometime late summer. I dropped my Sox season tickets after 30 years following the 2019 season, so the park I’m hoping to get to sometime this year is Polar Park. As...

    Red Sox to have fans at Fenway to start 2021

    People have their own individual risk scales. What one person considers “safe” can be different from someone else’s scale. It’s an individual choice based on a variety of factors.

    NFL News and Transactions

    I wonder how the QB figures in here. If the QB is left-handed (Mia), doesn’t the RT position become the key spot as the blind side is there? Of course there are very few LH QBs outside of Tua.

    Pats QB Options

    Under no circumstances do I want to sit through another season of Cam Newton. None. Nada. Zero. I’d rather have them go to the single wing.

    How does the Cape Cod league fit? Will they still operate as before, but with some lesser talent?

    NFL Coaching Carousel

    Isn't the biggest concern his health and how long he'll actually be able to actively coach the team?

    2021 Draft

    And we wonder why there is a lack of new blood at SOSH.

    Chara signs with Capitals

    Watching Character play last “season” was painful. Slow, shaky passing out of the defensive zone, a liability during 5-5 play. I was hoping he’d accept a lesser role here - reduced minutes, some closely managed penalty killing, and mostly being a coach to the young defensemen. My main concern...

    2020 NFL: Wk.15 Game Thread

    No contest for me. Both the college games will be more entertaining than the pro matchups.

    2020 Pats: QB Situation Beyond Cam

    I have this feeling that Belichick could well draft a WR/LB/DT in the first round and then draft Ian Book from ND during Round 3-4. Book seems like a Belichick guy - smart, makes quick decisions, accurate. He's on the small side, but he seems to have that intangible.

    The Game Ball Thread: Wk.12 vs Arizona

    Game Ball should go to Murray and Kingsbury. Murray for being about 50% healthy (he clearly was avoiding the run if possible). Kingsbury for pulling back on (protecting) using Murray as a runner. Pats were fortunate to catch Arizona when they did.

    RD2 #5/#37: S Kyle Dugger, Lenoir-Rhyne

    There’s lots of accountability. NFL officials are individually graded each week. They have a call with the league office each week following games where both questionable and missed calls are reviewed. Low graded officials don’t get playoff games and the league routinely weeds out the bottom...

    The Damien Harris Sploogefest

    I really hope Michel, somehow, can return to what he was at Georgia. Michel and Chubb were the stud running backs. Chubb was the main man, but when Michel came into the game he was absolutely electric. Quick and slashing. Only saw that occasionally In his rookie season and little since. Maybe...

    I was a Sox season ticket holder for 30+ years. Gave up my share after the 2019 season as other things in my life became more fun/important. I’m looking forward to getting to a few games in Worcester. After dealing with the trek into Boston, parking, and Fenway prices ...... Worcester games...
