    Offseason Thought Experiment - The Theo Epstein Front Office Tree

    In the NFL for years there has been a ton of conversation around coaching trees - most notably the Bill Parcells lineage from which the modern day Belichik Tree sprouts. Reading through some team offseason plan type articles and recognizing names from Theo's run here as GM starting in 2003 got...

    17 Years Ago Today....

    St Louis MO, Wed Oct 27, 2004 - 10:39pm The game that changed our collective fandom, marked by a lunar eclipse, and the collective exhale of generations of Sox fans. I remember sitting in front of the projector screen that had the game on in front of me, elbows on knees, hands clinching and my...

    The "All Noun" Team

    Saw this somewhere earlier today (my kid's tik tok maybe?) and thought this would be a solid exercise. Build a starting lineup (with DH) and starting pitcher with people who only have nouns as names. See below for what I started with: C: Johnny BENCH 1B Jimmy FOXX 2B ROD Carew 3B CHIPPER...

    Top Guns - Red Sox OF defense

    Tonight’s broadcast mentioned that the Sox had 8 more OF assists than any other team right before Kiké got Stassi at second. Is this a targeted skill the Sox have identified? Mookie and JBJ made some great throws over the last few years as well.Fenway’s RF requires a better arm than most...

    Either I'm blind or it's moved somewhere I can't find - but how does one edit their sig anymore?

    Defensive Gems - 2021 Edition

    I always loved these threads when populated by the glovework of Jose Iglesias, JBJ and others. Today gives us a worthy starter for 2021 thanks to Alex Verdugo. This is one of those catches that looks meh in slow motion but in real-time it was amazing: View...

    Bobby Dalbec - What do we have

    I was planning on starting a thread after today. Obviously the HR% of hits can’t be sustainable. Surely the K rate too. We all know Dalbec was K prone in the minors and as someone in the other thread mentioned he could be Mark Reynolds v2. Obviously we’d love for him to keep up the dingers but...

    Entire starting OF nominated for Gold Glove 2018

    In addition to Mookie, JBJ, and Benni, Moreland catches a nomination for 1B and Kinsler at 2B. https://www.mlb.com/news/gold-glove-award-finalists-named/c-299683866 More fuel for the "best Sox team ever" fire here. Have to imagine that JBJ has his best shot at a GG this year up against Trout...

    MLB: The Next Generation (or players that make you feel old)

    Spent yesterday at a minor league doubleheader (Mobile BayBears - AA affiliate of the Angels) which featured not one, but two descendants of guys I had baseball cards for - Hutton Moyer, son of crafty lefty Jamie Moyer and Gabby Guerrero, nephew of Vlad. Clearly this is something I'm going to...

    AppleTV - Disney Channels not working

    So I've cut the cord on cable again and usually it's not an issue, but with the small kids the disney junior channel is kinda nice to use on the AppleTV. Problem is the cox account I am logging in with works fine on the regular disney channel but not DisneyXD or DisneyJr. I'm assuming it's...
