    Thank You X

    Sorry guys, this is my fault, I bought a red alternate X jersey when I was at Fenway in July. I hate to see him go, but I am not sad that the Sox didn't pay that contract. Just wish there had been a better chance before it got to FA.

    Red Sox Rumors

    Did the Sox give up on Winckowski too? I didn’t see that move closing out the trade.

    What are your best offers to Devers and Bogaerts?

    Maybe. But this site was far far far more up in arms over Mookie leaving. We had accepted it was probably time for Nomar to go as much as we had all loved his early years. No one here thought it was worth matching Pedro’s deal to keep him on the wrong side of the age and injury curves. Maybe...

    What are your best offers to Devers and Bogaerts?

    2 of those 3 were the right call, regardless of emotions.

    Happy Retirement Brock Holt

    That’s gold.

    What are your best offers to Devers and Bogaerts?

    I think most are severely underestimating how much a ton of $$$ would be to beat the value of an opt-out. Jose Ramirez type situations are rare.

    What are your best offers to Devers and Bogaerts?

    To everyone saying "no opt outs" in your posts without having significantly bigger years or AAV or total - why would either of them take your offer over a comparable one elsewhere when opt outs seem to be the biggest leverage piece in contracts now?

    Happy Retirement Brock Holt

    The only player that I can mention via text to my kid without using his name. A simple \o/ gets it. Loved every minute of his time in the field. Add in the charity and community stuff and BROCKHOLT was too good for us.

    Red sox and Devers discussing a 7 year deal?

    The bolded is 100% the truth. It doesn't take much digging to see it. Quick look at Fangraphs Free Agent Tracker for the 2021 year (to avoid any strike caused weirdness). The top 7 batters: Batters: NAME AGE TERM AAV Marcel Ozuna 30 4 16.25 DJ LeMahieu 32 6 15 Nelson Cruz 40 1 13...

    How Many of the Red Sox Managers of Your Lifetime do you have a Visceral Hatred for?

    Bobby V can take a rocket to the sun. Just the lasting impression of a shit year and a half or so are the stories of Bobby’s spring training shenanigans. Fuck that smarmy guy. I don’t hate Grady. He failed mightily. Choked what could have been an easy decision but I feel more sorry for him than...

    Red sox and Devers discussing a 7 year deal?

    Devers is the most "likable" position player of the current Red Sox (barring a X return) and should be the face of the team in the way that Nomar/Papi/Pedroia/Mookie were. Xander is the quiet leader type (Raffy is to Papi as X is to Tek?) and just as valuable to the team, but I'm in the "back up...

    Greatest RH hitter in MLB history

    Just not in day games after a night game or travel. Seriously though this is Mays, Aaron and Pujols in the top tier, everyone else is just jockeying for position behind them.

    How to get back in this thing

    Ganthem hits exactly where I come down on this season. After the hot stretch coming into July there was an entire 5 man MLB starting rotation on the IL while we got to watch the WooSox rotation basically for a month. No front office in the world can pile up enough pitching depth to cover that...

    Judge for Ourselves

    I think Turner is seriously underlooked here (assuming X leaves, which is obviously not a forgone conclusion). Especially when you factor in the anti-shift rules next year and the new bases a guy with ++Speed like him could find himself more opportunities to provide value. I'd take him over...

    Judge for Ourselves

    Obviously the right answer is 6 (if not cost prohibitive) but because of 1 and 2 (spend it elsewhere and his age/injury history) I don't think cost prohibitive will mean to us what it will mean to some other team.

    Best Red Sox defensive CF

    The fact that they later spliced in some of his actual catches to this ad and most people didn't know this just shows that Werner knew what he was doing.
