    2023 Bullpen

    That looks pretty right-handed.......gotta figure they would have more than 1 lefty

    Cora: Pivetta is going to the bullpen as a multi-inning reliever

    So how is it that Pivetta is perceived to have a bad attitude for preferring to start and Whitlock (who has had much success in the bullpen) does not have a bad attitude despite preferring to start?

    Let's Talk About Bello

    for me I saw some growth yesterday. He had a few instances with runners on base early with nobody out and he was able to buckle down and minimize damage. ... future is bright!

    2023 Starting Rotation

    Ya, I agree with Littrell availability. Would have thought a bullpen arm for a 1-game call up and then shifting to Paxton. Not sure what activating a starter 2 days prior to his start actually does, unless as you suggest, Houck is getting moved to the pen and it just hasn't been made public yet.

    2023 Starting Rotation

    Trying to makes sense of this Paxton/Littell transaction. Wouldn't it make sense to have an extra bullpen arm for tonight incase Bello doesn't go very long? Then make room for Paxton prior to Friday's game or is this driven by a Paxton opt out?

    Extreme Makeover: The Jarren Duran Edition

    Not suggesting that it didn't happen, but seems like a rather small window of opportunity given that Duran spent the majority of spring training with team Mexico

    Verdugo 2023 he is an emerging leader in the clubhouse. Isn't that the type of guy you want around to help guide the prospect waive in the right direction?

    Enmanuel Valdez is getting called up to Boston.

    Good things happen when you don't try to pull it

    What if they just go over by a little bit?

    Beat The Clock

    I am not sure if this is the correct thread for this because I am not immediately blaming the rule changes although there has been plenty of discussion about batter engagement. I know batters have always gotten hit but rarely in the face (Tony C was decades ago). Now it seems to be happening...

    Sox Sign OF Adam Duvall to 1 year deal

    I would agree with this....the little that i know about these things is that x-rays are only able to see bone and an MRI is needed to see damage to tendon/ligaments. Therefore I would guess Duvall did not break his wrist. I think the more likely scenario is some type of tendon injury/re-injury...

    Red Sox sign Masataka Yoshida

    but what about a signed picture with Tessie! I also felt like it was a very poor look for NESN when Jahmai was standing directly behind them and reporting that they were refusing to turn it over as if to publicly shame them.

    The new running game

    I had no idea he was that fast......good to know

    The new running game

    Am I reading that correctly, that the back-up catcher is the fastest guy on the current 26 man roster?

    Red Sox Announce changes & new food offerings for 2023 season

    When the lights went off, I wasn't upset about not being able to see Duvall touch second base, but I hadn't finished reading the 73 advertisements plastered on the wall, fence, backstop, mound, and screen

    The new running game

    ....and of course there is the catcher on his knee thing that Varitek apparently loves. I can't see that helping to control the running game

    Beat The Clock

    I definitely support the quicker pace of play but a few minor tweaks might still be needed. I watched quite a bit of spring training and this was my biggest issue. It was very difficult to follow/understand what is being called. Some broadcasts (not NESN) have the pitch clock visible behind...

    Let's Predict the 2023 Red Sox Season

    Optimistically went with 85-89 wins, although wouldn't be surprised if they were 80-84. Encouraged by the spring so far but gotta figure they will be "regressing to the mean" about the time the regular season starts
