    Mookie redux

    Are we still making sacrifices to the pagan god of BABIP? Andy Rooney over here looks like he’s volunteering as tribute.

    Red Sox acquire Kyle Schwarber

    I don't think anyone's clamoring for it but I'm not going to dismiss his ability to contribute for the remainder of this year on his first 34 ABs. If he's going to be up with the major league club I'd rather see him get regular ABs than Marwin/Santana/Chavis/Dalbec.

    Red Sox acquire Kyle Schwarber

    Forgive me if this has already been discussed, but why not try Duran at 2B with Schwarber in the OF? Sure, Duran's not ready but he's here, he was drafted as a 2B, and he's always a better option at the plate than Chavis or Marwin. Edit: didn't get enough sleep - then what to do with Hernandez...

    Trade deadline

    Not really, in that it is contagious and could lead to a significant chunk of the team being out at the same time (see the Yankees) for no good reason.

    6/26 - Montgomery vs. Eovaldi

    Yeah who is that guy and why do they keep cutting to him?

    4/29: Yankees still suck!

    I guess I don't see how this is trolling. I read about selling low on Sanchez and Torres, why not sell high on a high leverage reliever?

    4/29: Yankees still suck!

    Green looking like a potentially valuable trade chip. Sell him high as a possible closer or fireman to another contending team.

    4/29: Yankees still suck!

    Sorry for musing in your otherwise pristine game thread, Terry.

    4/29: Yankees still suck!

    Good lord man. I'm not worried about him*. My point was that I always think of him as the guy he was a couple years ago and didn't realize until today that he had not been that guy this year or last. I only noted my surprise at my own misperception. *Edit: not only am I not worried about him, I...

    4/29: Yankees still suck!

    We have to forget about 2020? Yeah it was a much smaller sample but he slugged .368 in 42 games and has slugged .279 in 23 games this year. I'm not saying he's not the guy we saw in 2018 and 2019 (I'd take him in a heartbeat to play 2B for Boston and bet that this 24 year old can be the guy we...

    4/29: Yankees still suck!

    Yeah I don't watch a ton of Yankees games but he seems to have come up with some big hits in his short time with the team.

    4/29: Yankees still suck!

    I just looked at his baseball reference page and was surprised to see Gleyber hasn't really hit since 2019. I always think of him as one of the better hitters on the Yankees but I guess I've been mistaken (at least in '20 and '21). These guys could really use Voit back.

    4/14: It’s Ross Stripling, guys. Wake up!

    Judge kinda had more of the Griffey follow through on the home run. Looked to me like he was trying not to torque his back as much as his normal power swing. And I'll agree with Jon that any discomfort he has could very well be a vaccine side effect. I got dose 2 of Moderna a month and a half...

    4/14: It’s Ross Stripling, guys. Wake up!

    I figured the name would give it away, but yes I'm a Red Sox fan. I'm not here to troll the Yankee fans here; I actually just prefer the Yankees game threads because it's a smaller group which results in actual discussion. I find the Sox game threads read more like rapid fire response posts...

    4/14: It’s Ross Stripling, guys. Wake up!

    I guess I'll infer from your responses that Judge has looked like his normal self to you over the past few games.

    4/14: It’s Ross Stripling, guys. Wake up!

    Come on, that response is a bit disingenuous and dismissive. There's been smoke about Judge playing injured this season and his line was really good a week ago before he had those 3 days off due to what Boone called side soreness. It was a legitimate question.

    4/14: It’s Ross Stripling, guys. Wake up!

    I took a really quick look at his line for the season and his GO/AO is 2.00, almost double his career average of 1.09 (of course only through 9 games played).

    4/14: It’s Ross Stripling, guys. Wake up!

    I haven't watched any of the past few games due to blackout rules and timing but does Judge look right to you folks? I think he has 1 hit since his 3 days off last week. I think that's 1 hit in his last 4 games? Obviously that can happen to anybody, just wondering what your eyes tell you guys as...

    4/13: Please Start Hitting

    I almost started a thread at 1 am but didn’t want to be rude.
