    What are your best offers to Devers and Bogaerts?

    This is perfect. I would love this. No reason to read past this one. My only question is this, could we get Xander for 6 years? Or will he be looking for more years for his last 'big" contract?

    Ime Udoka suspended for the 22-23 season

    My snark did not come until after the Fellowship of the Miserable comment. Ignore that though

    Ime Udoka suspended for the 22-23 season

    Not sure if reading or comprehension is your challenge. NEVER NEVER NEVER did I say I wanted more. My point was the way Brad answered the question they are not expecting more to come to light, and I hope that is the case. But there are many examples are things coming out after initial findings...

    Ime Udoka suspended for the 22-23 season

    Let me explain it again and hopefully you will comprehend, hopefully. To me the question from Shank was a setup. A setup from the standpoint that he answered it that they are not expecting anything else from the past to crop up. Did they fully vet Udoka, I am sure they did. But if you do not...

    Ime Udoka suspended for the 22-23 season

    Thank you for posting this, and I appreciate your thoughts. When I heard Shank ask the question I said to myself Brad please answer the question with maybe the slightest possibility something somewhere could have been missed. But he did not. I can guarantee 4 seconds after the press conference...

    Sleuth out who Bill James is talking about - 2011 Sox

    Since we are talking about 2011.......I am going to say something very unpopular. No connection to James' comments. As someone that loved Francona while here, I hate him now and root my ass off for him to lose. Since gone he has given the middle finger to Boston, maybe because the Hohler piece...

    Dan Shaughnessy: Taking a dump in your mouth one column at a time

    For the first time in probably a decade Shaughnessy has a headline that I am somewhat curious about. Its about Bill James and the 2011 Red Sox. I refuse to ever click on anything he writes. Did anyone read it, if so is it hot air or anything intriguing? Thanks.

    Manager Carousel 2021

    Tito is not leaving Cleveland, he enjoys it. There are no expectations and its laid back that is what he wants. Whoever goes out to San Diego will be expected to win immediately, Francona does not want to manage lofty expectations.

    Stop hoarding TP(E) - the what should the Celtics do with the TPE thread

    DGreenwood, you are correct, my bad! No matter how many times I read it, my comprehension was wrong! Carry on

    Stop hoarding TP(E) - the what should the Celtics do with the TPE thread

    I have not seen this mentioned, but I found this line intriguing concerning Collins. I had to read it multiple times to confirm I read it correctly. Jared Weiss in The Athletic on Saturday while discussing a Harrison Barnes trade: "Boston could include Semi Ojeleye’s expiring deal to give...

    The Athletic: Poll on hypothetical, proposed trade for John Collins

    I would do it now, we hold onto the TPE, and we will have half a season with Collins to see if it works out chemistry wise. My only hesitation is giving up Pritchard.

    I agree with this, I say Sunday evening Cora is announced, it will be a football Sunday and the election will be 40 hours away.

    Felger: Red Sox offered Mookie what he asked for, and were turned down

    Mookie is no doubt a generational talent. Just my opinion but for whatever reason he did not want to be here long term. I sincerely believe ownership and the FO knew this as well. When someone wants to be here longterm (Xander) they work things out. Has this ownership group made mistakes, yes...

    So does the play in format open the door for this pick to be back in the lottery?

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

    I still believe something gets done and baseball is played. But if it does not, I believe the owners come out of this looking ok in the court of public opinion. Meanwhile the players negotiating in public look bad and greedy.

    Mookie Betts 2020 FA Watch

    If that is the case, lucky to get $250 million, I wonder if Mookie does a one year deal in hopes of a bigger pay day in 2021. He has never been afraid of betting on himself and going year to year.
