    Story of Dice-K Posting?

    This was a solid trip down memory lane, and it's amazing just how throughly mediocre he was after all the hype. I know the hype isn't his fault, and I don't have any real ill will towards the guy (he did contribute to that 2007 team), but he was just... so unpleasant to watch for so long.

    Kyrie is an antisemite. And we have schadenfreude?

    He really has become the Kanye of the basketball world, hasn’t he? The similarities between them are eerie.

    Javier really is throwing some crazy breaking balls here.

    Had to throw a lot of pitches there, but I will take that outcome.

    Not sure, but I love that he’s flashing his WS bling.

    Happy Retirement Brock Holt

    That is outstanding, so hilarious. Also a great shot of him lobbing in a softball pitch for a strike :)

    Happy Retirement Brock Holt

    Hell yeah, that plus an all-star appearance in 2015 and his great community work only makes his credentials even more solid :)

    Ugh. I feel like the Phillies magicking out of the early deficit two nights in a row against this team might be a tall order.

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

    Boston University, perhaps unsurprisingly. Lived a few blocks away from Fenway for four years during Pedro’s prime, and sadly just did not take advantage of it. Would go back and tell my younger self to do a lot of things differently but one of them would be to just hit a few more games.

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

    I’m going to make an embarrassing admission. I wasn’t terribly into baseball or the Sox prior to 2003. I moved to Boston for college in 1999, but wasn’t much of a sports fan. But by 2003, there was no avoiding it, and one of my best friends in the city was a big Yankees fan (one of the good...

    2022 World Series: What's your prediction?

    Heart says Phillies in 6, everything just seems to be breaking their way right now. But you could easily say the same thing about the Astros, and the superiority of the AL (as well as the Astros' strong play end to end this season) means they'll likely take it in 5.

    Red sox and Devers discussing a 7 year deal?

    I was just replaying that game today, strangely enough. Excellent timing!

    That’s the vibe I’ve had since near the beginning of this series. They just seem to be locked in at the right time. That said, so do the Astros.

    Alright, I lol’d. I’m just cranky about the Padres and having to think about the suck fest that was the Sox bullpen this year.

    Comparing the trash fire that was the 2022 Red Sox to this Phillies team is hilarious. Watching them play over the last few weeks makes the Sox’ deficiencies even more glaring.

    Goddammit. Will admit that the Phillies feel like a team of destiny at this point.

    Ok didn’t see that coming but I guess it’ll do? I have no idea. Playoff baseball is so stressful
