    Jon Lester announces his retirement

    Who cares about HOF? He battled cancer and pitched for 16 years in the big leagues. He will always be a winner to me. Enjoy your retirement, Big Guy.

    Red Sox player that you cared most about

    Ok, to make up for originally not scrolling the entire thread before posting, here is a name which would not be mentioned otherwise. As a 10- year- old kid, this was the guy who originally got me interested in the Red Sox until I later found out he was only a temporary replacement for a better...

    Red Sox player that you cared most about

    I haven't scrolled over the entire thread but appreciated the references to Ike Delock, and Earl Wilson who I also liked. I think my favorite was Frank Malzone though. I remember him coming up with Don Buddin from Louisville as a young rookie, anchoring third base for years, hitting a home run...

    Red Sox sign Rich Hill to a one year deal

    At last the full story on Rich Hill. I can quit searching for Dick Mountain on Facebook now. 2022 is now complete for me.

    Rich Hill ?

    Sorry. I'm old , so just get rid of this before I am also deemed senile. Thanks for the above info.

    Rich Hill ?

    I saw on Facebook that he signed with the Red Sox but it is not on MLB or the Red Sox site. Is this "fake news"?

    2022 HOF Candidates: Ortiz and Papelbon First Time on Ballot

    There are plenty of sources more reliable than Stump documenting Cobb as a true a-hole and racist.

    2022 HOF Candidates: Ortiz and Papelbon First Time on Ballot

    If Schilling is kept out of the HOF because of "losing his mind" over non-baseball behavior, then present HOFers with even more unacceptable behavior should probably be removed as well to maintain the moral purity of the institution. Ty Cobb would be my first nomination and I'm not too sure...

    ALCS 2021: Red Sox vs. Astros Discussion Thread

    Thanks to team for a lot of high spots during 2021. My brain is too tired to think about next year so will move to another sport for awhile (college basketball and KC Chiefs). I am happy we were one of the last four standing and , after all, only one team gets to win it all each year.

    At This Point in the Season, What Would You Consider a Success?

    I think most of us agree that we've been living on gravy since beating the Yankees. Beating the Rays and pummeling the Astros twice just made me greedy for more. Now I want to win the next two, but if we don't, I will move on to hoping the Nebraska basketball team can finally find an NCAA...

    Your top "forgot he was a Red Sox"

    I have enjoyed reading this thread, especially the mention of Vic Wertz, who died July 7, 1983. That grand slam was August 14, 1959. How do I remember? I had mentioned it in a poem I wrote about memories of my dad called "Bits of Amber". Incidentally, Hoot Evers was mentioned in the same poem...

    I'm glad there is someone who can remember the favorite Red Sox player of my youth, Walter "Hoot" Evers.

    Starting Rotation '21

    Anyone having a true migraine attack is not able to function. Has he had them in the past? I don't think there is any correlation between migraines and COVID.

    The Red Sox will be wearing yellow and blue uniforms on Patriots' Day weekend

    If the team gets a "W", they are ok. If it's an "L", I never want to see them again.
