    Kevin Youkilis to be NESN's primary color analyst on Red Sox broadcasts in 2023

    What's the over/under on how many times a game he disapprovingly says, "That was a ball."

    How interested are you in the Red Sox at this point?

    I respect this. I don't believe the other part (that you could just bail forever on baseball). But I respect your "There will never be another" sentiment. You could live a full life, like Rose after the Titanic sank and she didn't share a huge piece of door with Jack.

    How interested are you in the Red Sox at this point?

    Four rings offers enough liberation from the quest to take a break at times. Not to V&N the place, but I haven't been watching because I can't root for any player who went to the White House after 2018 while Cora and the majority of the team boycotted. Most of the attendees are gone. JD and...

    Happy Yankees Elimination Day!

    “What else have you been lying about? Did little Knobby really go to live with a family in Oneonta?”

    Happy Yankees Elimination Day!

    By next fall, there will be 13 year old Yankee fans who know no title joy.

    Yankees must win for Red Sox to get passion again!

    "Realizing he'd lost his passion, Andy got back into that pipe and crawled backward through five-hundred yards of shit-smelling foulness I can't even imagine."

    Yankees must win for Red Sox to get passion again!

    And even before that, the very term Yankee began as a pejorative for Dutch settlers who ate cheese*, with Jan being a common Dutch name and “kaas” meaning cheese. Ergo, “Jan Kaas = John Cheese,” which evolved to “Yankee.” So, admittedly that’s all a little antiquated and puerile, sure, fine, but...

    Yankees must win for Red Sox to get passion again!

    There are 12-year-old Yankee fans who know no title joy. And we’re supposed to wish this away? No. I want to live in a world where that kid leaves for college in six years and dispassionately just kinda becomes a Cardinals or Giants or Mariners fan because the Yankees never win.

    Sale's Return - When and in What Capacity?

    Probably four. (from AP) Boston has a $20 million team option for 2025, and if that is exercised, $5 million would be deferred until June 30, 2040. The 2025 salary would become guaranteed if he finishes among the top 10 in Cy Young voting in 2024 and is healthy at the end of the 2024 season.

    Happy 7th anniversary to David Ortiz’s game tying ALCS grand slam!

    I fell asleep on the couch and missed it. After watching every damn game that season, even the midseason extra-inning garbage from Oakland or Seattle that went till 2 am.

    John Thompson dead at 78

    Original Big East was the best. Thompson, Carnasecca, young Jimmy B in some plaid blazer, Rollie. Conference did some damage and those coaches recruited the hell out of the East Coast.

    MLB 2020: We're Playing, but We Can't Agree on Anything

    And that the Yankees don’t win.

    Betts/Price to LA for Alex Verdugo, Jeter Downs, and Connor Wong

    Fictionalizing for fun, but I love the idea in the Friedman-Bloom staredown, instead of Friedman blinking per se ... he actually let out a slow smile and said something like, "I taught you well, kid. Downs it is."

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    It'd be fascinating to know if Friedman's med people in LA agree with Bloom's. If this were Moneyball 2, the the phone call between the two in that case would be great entertainment.

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    Might start rooting for the Twins. That was slick of (looks it up) Thad Levine trying to offload a hyped prospect with a flawed shoulder. That's presuming his shoulder isn't spaghetti (sounds like it isn't) and presuming LA/BOS were the ones who came to them. Almost hustled the whales to add...

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    On the upside, we might've just beaten the Yankees in the World Series.

    Kobe Killed in Helicopter Crash

    Means nothing. But kinda weird he dies the day after Bron passes him for third in the all-time scoring list. Guy coulda lived 40 more years and that probably doesn’t happen again.
