    Minor league thread 2023

    @JM3 To misquote a famous philosopher, don't let the needs of the few, outweigh the needs of the many.

    Tim Wakefield has passed away from brain cancer at 57 (10/1 update)

    Absolutely tragic to lose such a good guy, who was part of our Red Sox experience. The legacy of good works he left behind will endure in our memories. Deepest condolances to his family and to all of us who saw who he really was.

    What does 2023 look like?

    I was there last year, and it is indeed a Traveshamockery. Seeing it on TV doesn't do it justice.

    Marcus Smart is your 2021-2022 Defensive POY

    I'm grinning as I just saw this live and the room is a tad dusty. This is the best version of Marcus I have had the pleasure of seeing, on both sides of the ball. He elevated his game about the same time the Celtics transitioned to a new level. I choose to believe this correlation is causation.

    Happy Birthday, Yaz!

    That. Was. Epic. Yaz made me a Sox Fan in 1967 and I too tried to emulate his stance in Babe Ruth League. This post and others made the room dusty as I read them. Thank you.

    Happy Truck Day

    Ever since 1967 when I sat in the bleachers behind the bullpen, I have been utterly and completely sold. I have more angst than BMHH when they lose, but that has always been the case, even during the long droughts of mediocrity. The last 17 years have been something else again and it is more...

    2019 Game Goat Thread: Wk. 9 at Ravens

    He clearly stepped on the back of the blocking lineman's heel, in one of the replays. I think Collingsworth mentioned it in his commentary.

    [LOCKED] 2019 AB Watch: Non-legal Views Only

    Fuck me running. And here I thought all the noise elsewhere was just anti-Pats paranoia. This is going to be interesting, even for one year. $15M with $9M signing bonus, according to Schefter.

    Byerie Irving? Do you want Kyrie back?

    It's funny, but when I saw Kyrie's comments about Brad, Danny and Boston, i thought, "wherever you go, Kyrie, there you are." Then I came here and saw Kazuneko's comments and it just clicked regarding what is going on in his head. We don't know of course, but all the events of this season and...

    So, the site's been down only for me, for close to 2 days?

    I had the same issues with Tapatalk on Android that others reported above. Now on the webpage and aside from losing my avatar, all is good. Need fo find that great gif of William Lee one of the mods brilliantly gave me, but even I should be able to find it again. Also have fewer errors from...

    SB53: We Need Links Thread!

    I'm going to sound like McVay here, but this board is GOLD for being a single source distillation of analysis and video for the teams we love. Amazing work from all of you!!

    Josh Gordon stepping away from football "for a bit"

    I had the same experience as the two of you a little over 20 years ago, with being totally unable to quit using and drinking on my own. I hit my rock bottom and once I walked into a 12-step program, haven't relapsed since. That was only possible by doing the work and taking suggestions from...

    Best 2018 Red Sox postseason moments

    Agreed. Reading this thread has reminded me how many moments of note there were in this run and how many details I've overlooked until you all recaptured all the legendary moments. One of the things that makes this place special and only enhances my enjoyment of our Red Sox.

    2018-19 Offseason Thread

    Agreed. I would like someone to figure out why his power dropped the second half and help him fix it, but he is solid.

    World Series 2018--Red Sox vs. Dodgers

    The loss sucked, but I was so proud to be a fan of this incredible team and their unwavering support for each other. They're not perfect in every aspect, but in the context of the SSS that is the playoffs, there have been some unexpected performances that came out of nowhere. Who predicted the...
