    Sox Extend Barnes; 2 years, $18.75 M

    Is there a write-in option? If so can I pick 12/6 curveball? If I could pitch that’s what I’d throw. That pitch is unhittable.

    10/22 AlCS Game 6– I’m Jose Melendez, and I’m starting this thread.

    I know, we really needed Barnes in early season form. Check out the ‘Fire Laz Diaz!’ petition - won’t do any good but I signed it anyway.

    10/22 AlCS Game 6– I’m Jose Melendez, and I’m starting this thread.

    Me too. I actually registered to the Rays fan site to congratulate them on a great season and how well they played during the ALDS. I really can’t stand the Astros though, and I still feel like we should have beat them. If we had a slight upgrade from Perez, Sawamura (and Barnes too at this...

    10/22 AlCS Game 6– I’m Jose Melendez, and I’m starting this thread.

    I can’t understand it either, but I also can’t understand the last 3rd of the season. It’s like there’s a button that gets pressed and suddenly all of the life comes out of the team. Nobody can expect multiple grand slams every series, but no runs in the last 20+ innings is just bizarre. I’m...

    10/16 - ALCS Game 2

    It seems like these morning zoo announcers are less than even handed in their treatment of us. I‘m surprised they‘re not banging trash cans over the microphones.

    9.22.21 These Unis Are Driving Me Bananas!

    I hope the Sox aren’t stingy when they dole out the base hits.

    9/6 vs. Rays--A Labor of Love

    I’ve heard that, but after everything I’ve read, I think they could have gotten him. I think that is a myth that JH put out as damage control. Ownership has a history of not valuing their best home grown talent. And if they had any intention of keeping Mookie they wouldn’t have given away all...

    9/6 vs. Rays--A Labor of Love

    Me too, they never should have made those trades and have done major damage to the team for doing so IMO.

    9/6 vs. Rays--A Labor of Love

    I keep thinking that, but then a new one comes along that’s even worse. Like today. But like they say in the program, you find rock bottom when you put down the shovel.

    The Red Sox Bid August Adieu

    Ft. Lauderdale used to be called Ft. Liquordale because of all the elderly alcoholics. Too hot outside so they hide in air conditioned rooms and start drinking.

    8/10 - Tampa Bay

    Bet you anything that’s Warner’s doing. I guess maybe we shouldn’t complain, he’d have the whole team in sequin rhinestone jumpsuits if he really had his way.

    PTBNLs named in Benintendi/Cordero trade

    Ok, but if that means he’s in decline, by that logic, Franchy must be on his way to becoming Sammy Sooser.

    PTBNLs named in Benintendi/Cordero trade

    Yeah but Porcello is 32 now and that’s a totally different story from a 26 year old position player. And yes that was obviously his best year - he’s not immune to decline or getting older by playing to his strengths, but he admittedly didn’t win the award when he was trying to be something other...

    PTBNLs named in Benintendi/Cordero trade

    I‘m not trying to say that the PTNBLs won’t turn out to be good players - they might, but they’re a longshot. I agree that they need to invest in the future, but the potential value of those prospects and the new pitcher needs to make up for the loss of performance in Franchy. I know Beni wasn’t...

    PTBNLs named in Benintendi/Cordero trade

    I think so too, and I would still feel the same way if Beni wasn’t doing well and Franchy was. I think the Royals GM pulled a fast one on us and sold us a lemon. I also think that Beni’s troubles were of his own making - trying to bulk up and putting on all that extra weight and messing with...

    Stark: Doing the math on the ‘competitive balance tax,’ and the Red Sox’ motivation to trade Mookie Betts

    The only thing is that they could have brought the whole team back without signing Chris Sale a year early and without giving out another Hanley/Panda-style contract to Eovaldi. These contracts that they’ve buried themselves with are incomprehensible. Grotesquely overpaying a guy no one else...
