    What If…? Red Sox Edition

    I’m a history teacher, so we play this game a lot in my classes. There are a lot of these. My favorite/most frustrating what if involves the infamous Tom Yawkey and his merry band of racist scumbags. What if he had relented or just wasn’t a racist, and signed a couple of players who were...

    Is ___________ a Hall of Famer?

    One of the fun parts of MLBTV is watching games and feeds that I’d otherwise never see. I noticed tonight that Zach Grienke notched the 2,700th K of his career. He’s definitely within shooting distance of the magical 3k mark but I’ve never watched him and thought I was watching a HoFer like...

    MLB Network Special on Ken Griffey Jr. starts Sunday at 8pm

    Didn’t see a thread for this. Just a heads up for those who are like me and learned to love the game on another level because of watching Jr. His rise cane during the dark days of Red Sox baseball so he was the perfect distraction from the woebegone days of Carlos Quintana and Randy Kutcher...

    Just in Case: Let’s Get Nostalgic About the Last 20 Years

    Verlander or Cole: The Sneaky Awesome AL Cy Young Debate

    Was just talking about this with a friend. These guys are so close to each other in so many stats: JV: wins, baa, whip, CG’s GC: ERA, K’s, K/9, ERA+, FIP I assume JV will win with the no-hitter being the tiebreaker for many voters. But should it be? If ever there was a time to split it...

    A Companion Guide to the MLB.TV Thread: What Broadcast Teams are Must Listens?

    First, all who suggested getting mlbtv, I salute you. It's been so good I got an Apple TV box just to watch on the 50 inch. I have found myself on the hunt for good broadcast teams. My first foray, other than Dodger home games, was SF. For some reason I assumed the "it is outta here!" guy...

    Just For Fun: What Price Would You Pay for Clayton Kershaw?

    Thought about this last night while watching him dominate without his A game. Here are the rules: This isn't"what would LA accept." It's what is the highest price you would be willing to pay? Teams budgetary limits are real including present salary obligations. This is nor an actual...

    Run the picket fence, but don't get caught watching the paint dry: Pacers to wear Hickory unis in 2

    Very cool imo. I know it was actually the Milan team but this is still phenomenal. If I were a Pacers fan I would absolutely buy one of these. The golden shorts though...not so much.

    Fix This Team: A Speculative Alternative to the Roster Shakeup Thread

    This doesn't mean we go into a EEI style trade proposal fest. If you have trade ideas as well as call ups and demotions feel free. Just make it reasonable please. My two candidates for removal from the rotation are Buchholz and Kelly. Kelly is the easy one. Buchholz would probably require...
