    Fernando Tatis Violates PED Policy

    If teams are worried about being on a hook for over a decade to a player who uses PEDs, then they shouldn't be handing out 13-year contracts to 22-year-olds. The punishment for a positive test has already been collectively bargained and everyone knew that going into the deal. You have to get...

    August MLB Game Thread

    As of right now, the Orioles have the third wild card and (if I counted right) the tie breaker in head to head record against the Rays.

    8-10-22 Cowboy Down

    I don't think it would bother them at all. They'd like nothing more than a park full of tourists spending big on concessions and merch.

    Red Sox Trade Deadline 2022

    How is it Bloom's fault if other teams don't want what he was offering? Dropping the price so you're giving away talent for nothing doesn't accomplish anything. And what does getting under the tax matter? A couple slots higher in a compensation pick? The stiff penalties for going a bit over are...

    Chris Sale aiming to return

    Just about every car accident is reported. Bike accidents only show up in the stats if there's a reason to call someone for help. I doubt Chris Sale's bike accident is recorded anywhere, but the hit and run where my unoccupied parked car was scratched up certainly was. I don't think there are...

    Chris Sale aiming to return

    He's giving Carl Pavano a run for his money. He's going to miss all of 2023 with a bruised ass. It's going to be tough since he barely has one.

    Eck is done in the NESN booth after the season

    I like Youkilis. He's a little rough around the edges, but brings the perspective of a modern hitter to the booth. And I think he'd be better able to show his humor if he didn't have a dead fish like DOB with him. The one thing he just doesn't have and never will is the amazing recall of Eck or...

    August MLB Game Thread

    Rube Bressler could hit a bit and moved to the outfield when the pitching didn't work out. He played another 17 seasons after that. But in his 56 ERA+ year of 1915 he put up an OPS+ of 56. I wonder if Shohei could match like that, but on the positive side of 100. He's currently at 142 and 136...

    Red Sox in season discussion

    It seems like there are some people who think every team could go 162-0 if the manager just hit the right buttons. He had one of his best pitchers well rested in the biggest spot in the game. And he choked. It happens and there isn't anything you can do about it (other than scoring a few more...

    Sox acquire Eric Hosmer

    Casas has always been more about projection than production. He put up a .877 OPS last year and is at .787 in AAA this year. Neither of those scream "can't miss prospect." He's going to have to start putting up the numbers people think he's capable of before he gets a chance in the big leagues.

    August MLB Game Thread

    Scherzer himself is sporting a 2.13 ERA and WHIP well under 1. Older starters seem to be a much better bet than younger ones in the free agent market. They're willing to accept shorter deals and aren't particularly more likely to be hurt or ineffective.

    We Wish You Well Jackie Bradley Jr. (DFA 8.4.22)

    The trade deadline was a couple of days ago. It's either pick him up and pay the salary, or wait until the 14th when he clears waivers and is a free agent. Jackie could also accept an assignment to Worcester, but without being on the 40 man roster, there's not much hope of coming back from there.
