    Happy Yankees Elimination Day!

    If the Yankees win this series they will have earned it. No team in baseball history has entered an ALCS, or any CS, less set up to use their starting rotation. There are always four days of rest available for the Game 5 DS starter to start Game 3 of the CS, but no this year because of the...

    Yankees must win for Red Sox to get passion again!

    Yeah I saw that you weren't talking about rooting for the championship, just the pennant, so I edited mine but not in time. In any event, yes, it would be great if the Guardians could knock them out but that would require the Guardians being able to score runs. My rooting interests rank as...

    Yankees must win for Red Sox to get passion again!

    This is heretical. Aaron Judge is one of the most likable players in baseball, but no Red Sox fan should want to see him win another game with the Yankees again, never mind a pennant. It's the uniform, not the person.

    Red Sox in season discussion

    If they trade for Cron or Bell, their playoff lineup is: Durran Devers J.D Martinez Bogaerts Bell/Cron Story Verdugo Vazquez Franchy/Kike Playoff rotation could be Sale/Eovaldi/Pivetta/Wacha Playoff Pen of Houck/Whitlock/Schreiber/Strahm/Taylor/Sawamura/Diekman/some possible combination of...

    Three True Outcomes, The Bobby Dalbec Thread.

    Between him striking out in a key spot with the bases loaded by swinging at two Aroldis Chapman pitches that weren't close to strikes where it was obvious Chapman was having trouble throwing strikes, and his little league muff last night, I'd be happy to never see Bobby Dalbec play baseball...

    Sox Rotation '22- The Good, The Pretty Good, The Not-Bad, the Pretty Bad and the Ugly

    Yeah I didn't state that well. They're important in a lot of ways, just not in the fighting-for-the-division way. That portion of the juice is not there this time.

    Sox Rotation '22- The Good, The Pretty Good, The Not-Bad, the Pretty Bad and the Ugly

    I'd love to see us beat them up a bit with a such a compromised roster and put some fear into them, and at the very least we have to hope we don't lose too much playoff standing with so many games left against them, but overall I agree with the above - it's been a long time since midseason...

    Red Sox Trade Deadline 2022

    Could a foundation of Schreiber/Strahm/Whitlock/Houck/Taylor/Davis, with slightly less consistently effective Diekman and Robles filling it out, be good enough? I feel like it could be, but so much depends on Sale turning into a reliable rotation foundation, which is a huge ask.

    Celtics vs. Warriors, NBA Finals

    I tell myself that if we won last night we’d be losing Monday, but by losing last night we‘ll now win Monday, making it a wash. Obviously that only works if we win Monday, but along with this team‘s incredible bounce back resilience, at this point in the run it’s going to make an enormous...

    Celtics vs. Warriors, NBA Finals

    7-15 over his last two games though. 0-2 from three the game before that but 6-6 on two-point shots. Obviously a stupidly small sample size but reason for some hope that he could be getting a little bit hot.

    Celtics vs. Heat, Round 3 Discussion

    6-0 after a loss. 3-0 in elimination games, two of them road wins. 7-2 on the road. Golden State might have home court, but it ain‘t no advantage. This team is such a strange mix of being so amazing when things are down and so ineffectual when things are up, within a series and within the...

    Celtics vs. Heat, Round 3 Discussion

    In a post-game interview last night Grant said that he had no expectation of starting the second half, and did so only because Rob was in the bathroom at that moment. Timelord being Timelord.

    Glass half full - he misses one more game and comes back with a much needed recharged battery.

    Celtics vs. Bucks, Round 2 Discussion

    Hearing a lot on the morning talk shows this morning that the series might have gone the other way had Milwaukee not punted away home court advantage the last game of the season, despite the fact that the Bucks were one half-second-too-late-tip-in away from possibly losing every home game they...

    Celtics trade Josh Richardson, Romeo Langford and a 1st round pick to Spurs for Derrick White

    I think this has been apparent for awhile now, but you're dead on about it being hard for some to admit. It's amazing to me how many in sports media have been so achingly slow to reach this realization. A lot of them still aren't there. They just can't get off the standard narratives. Boston...

    Celtics vs. Nets, Round 1 Discussion

    He said after the game 1 press conference that he had to slow down his game. Now he thinks he needs to play with more speed. He’s gotta be realizing that he probably doesn’t have an answer.
