    We're back!

    Same roster as before the break. Let's see what happens. Eovaldi vs. Gausman. We don't seem to be able to do anything with Gausman, but maybe the additional rest will give Eovaldi enough stamina to compete. Stupid baseball birthday: Doc Cramer. I had never heard of him till today, although he...

    Screw it, another reverse-lock. (yeah, right) Home vs. Astors 5/17

    Go watch the Celtics; this is going to be awful. Gotta tell the truth; I went to bed not long after Barnes crapped the bed. This morning I was amazed to discover that Cora let Strahm pitch another inning, as opposed to what Cora usually does, which is pull somebody who pitched well and go to...

    Oh, what the hell. Reverse lock thread. Home vs. Astors 5/16

    I might as well take one for the team here and start tonight's thread. This is John Jacob Astor. The kind of asshole we're up against tonight. However, he did sink and die while on the Titanic in 1912, so there's that. I have a sinking feeling myself. Only one birthday today of note; Paddy...

    4/18- Hill vs. Bundy

    It's Patriots day, gang. Let's get this party started. It's possible Rich Hill saw the first Patriots Day game. It's possible he fought in the Battle of Lexington. He's that old. Yesterday was fun. Today is the birthday of Duffy Lewis, who is the only non-Hall-of-Fame member of the Sox's...

    4/17- Wacha vs. Ober

    Happy Easter. Bunnies and colored eggs and resurrections wherever you turn. We have seen this guy Bailey Ober before. Last August 25, in Fenway, Ober pitched really well against us (5 innings, 4 hits, no runs) on a night when the bad Nick Pivetta showed up for us. We scored in the 7th, 8th and...

    4/16- Houck vs. Gray

    It's supposed to start raining at 7ish, so let's get this one in quickly, yes? My sister-in-law and her husband are in town from Cincinnati and are heading to Fenway for the game, so let's win it for them. They've watched the Reds for far too long. We wouldn't want to rain out Travis Shaw's...

    Former OU volleyball player sues over exclusion from team

    https://amp.oklahoman.com/amp/7508610002 I think we're going to be seeing more of this. She feels she was branded a racist and excluded because of her right-wing political views. Of course, her racist views are right there in the lawsuit for everybody to see. What do our resident lawyers...

    Strat-O-Matic season simulation- We win the opener!

    I played the APBA simulation game as a kid, but one of my friends was a Strat-O-Matic guy. In any event, they are doing a simulation of the season, and we won the opener! Here's the box score: https://2020seasonsim.s3.amazonaws.com/March26th/BOS%40TOR.htm Here's the link to the season...
