    2023 Starting Rotation

    Last year with the Rays, Kluber had a very impressive walk rate (1.2/9 innings) and did pitch 164 innings. But was he a guy who was great last year? His ERA+ of 84 says no.

    2023 Red Sox In Season Trade News and Discussion

    Since we're picking nits here, "lottery pick" is about a million miles away from "lottery ticket".

    Your top "forgot he was a Red Sox"

    Can you imagine if Oil Can played today? He'd be a cult figure. I still tell people his quote after the fog game in Cleveland. Tony Armas had disappeared into a dense fog chasing a fly ball into center field. A few seconds later he emerged from the fog holding the ball aloft in his glove. Some...

    Tilt: Game Over

    Unpublished quote from Ryan: My wife Pat has a respectable Republican cloth coat...and we're going to keep Checkers, I don't care what anyone says.

    Red Sox sign Kenley Jansen

    It's been a long time since I've looked forward to any appearance by Ryan Brasier.

    5-13 vs the Cards

    It's the big leagues, teams have been working the rules to find a competitive advantage since forever. However the rule is written, there's bound to be some smart guy who's gonna find a way to push the envelope. Sometimes they go too far [cough] trashcan. Now that the Card's little gambit has...

    4/19 The Twins are still in town

    Chaim mulling his 2023 shortstop options: "Well, there is the franchise icon. He may be a little expensive, but hell, its only money..." Pads just offered him $280 mil, boss. "Oh...Send him a nice thank you card, maybe an edible arrangement. How about our big money second baseman/former...

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

    Such an interesting question...Is he more inert, or more like a fart? Certainly he checks the "incapable of chemistry with anyone" box, but listening to him is like sitting next to a drunk smelly guy at the ballpark who keeps saying stupid annoying things. I like Youk, and I'm rooting for him...

    Trevor Story had surgery on his right UCL and is expected to miss time

    This post needs more love. Sprowl is the Poet Laureate of Sosh. And Jose Iglesias can be our King of Pain.

    Red Sox Trade Deadline 2022

    He took a job in the Padres front office after he retired, so that may explain his cap. And Kelly helping us win the WS was just gravy as far as that trade goes. I never liked rooting for Lackey, and I still root for Joe to this day.

    The off-season

    Leaving aside the unknowable question of whether we would get good Clay or bad Clay (or both) if the Sox exercise their option, it should be clear, if history has taught us anything, that you're going to need more than 5 starting pitchers to make it through 162 games. It's not unusual to have...

    The Bullpen Thread

    And if I might venture beyond the 1 liner, Henry strikes me as a long man or, at best, a start-a-clean-inning middle reliever. I wouldn't want him pitching with any of my inherited runners on base. The problem with not having fastball command isn't just that he walks lots of guys; it's that...

    The Bullpen Thread

    This is the guy to make that case: Jeff Gilooly was last seen selling used cars. I think he might be available.

    Which type of plate discipline is eating Panda?

    Ok, so I'm a just read/never post kind of SOSHer. But on special occasions... I'm sure a lot has been attempted, by both the Giants and Red Sox, to try and get Panda to lose weight and perform up to his huge (pun intended) potential. And you COULD be right that the (crack) Red Sox medical staff...
