    Theo...Hall of Famer?

    That was my understanding as well. But that isn't meant to take anything away from Beane. He was obviously extremely important to the evolution of player evaluation.

    Theo...Hall of Famer?

    Was Beane really the first guy to embrace advanced analytics, or was he the first guy to recognize that some stats (such as OBP) were more important than others (such as BA or RBIs)? I'm not saying he wasn't- I'm simply not sure.

    How Do You Root For the Sox?

    Totally agree in general, although I'd say that a couple of moves have pissed me off. But they pissed me off because I didn't think they were right for the team, not because I was upset that a particular player left.

    Why would they retire his number?

    Millar sucks too. Jesus NESN is awful.

    6/22 Skubal vs Wacha

    This guy gets it. It was an Abs-specific comment.

    Hats are good for you though.

    6/22 Skubal vs Wacha

    Why do we have to listen to this asshole? Why did the team invite him?

    Looking for a multi purpose Laptop for my year as VFW State Commander. Budget $600ish

    I bought a Dell Inspiron 15 5000 last year and it's been great. I got my wife an Inspiron 14 this year and it's been just as good but it's a little smaller and cheaper. I would assume either would do what you need it to do. Mine was about $800 and my wife's was about $600.

    What happened last night that Mazz can't stop talking about?

    6/11 Sea ... Another W 4 WWWWacha

    So it was more like a hot blip? A hot night? A steamy night?

    6/11 Sea ... Another W 4 WWWWacha

    And here's Dave again talking about historic numbers vs. an opponent as if it means anything. I miss Orsillo.

    6/10 M Bop

    It's Rowland-Smith? I wasn't aware that he's Australian.

    Mookie details Boston exit

    He signed his extension when he was still two years away from FA. If he wanted that kind of security two years in advance there was going to be a discount. He obviously must like being in Cleveland, and I never understood why that rarely seems to be a consideration. I'd much rather make $150m...

    Mookie details Boston exit

    That could be, but we've seen over the years that some players seem to care more about the headline numbers than the present value. Also Mookie never reached free agency

    5/28 Game 1 Does it really matter.....

    Duquette is David Puddy with less charisma.

    5/28 Game 1 Does it really matter.....

    I can't believe they keep bringing Mazz back. Who at NESN listens to him and thinks, there's the guy we want in the booth for 3 hours?

    Josh Donaldson Suspended for Making Racist Comment

    The reason it came up today is because a lot of people, myself included, never heard about any of this until last night. If you think there should be a separate thread to discuss Anderson's interview you'll get no argument from me. It's clearly the less important issue, but it's obviously...
