    Brayan Bello signed to a 6 year, $55 million extension

    I love Pedro, but you may be right about his ability as a talent scout. IIRC, Pedro was also very high on Rubby De La Rosa and people were upset about trading him for Wade Miley.

    Unusual plays

    The Phillies turned a 1-3-5 triple play thanks to bad baserunning by Tigers. The first of its kind since 1929. That one also involved the Tigers. https://www.mlb.com/news/aaron-nola-phillies-turn-triple-play-against-tigers

    6/14 - Finals Game 4 @ DAL – Only Championship Banners

    Pregame on NBC Boston going to commercial with the clip of Walton saying, "nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile" was perfect.

    2024 Red Sox: Better, Worse, or About the Same?

I get that it's radio and you don't want dead air, but there have been times in the past that he seemed like he was out to prove he was the smartest baseball person on air and wouldn't shut-up in...

    Plawecki got a minors deal with Washington. He seemed like a good clubhouse guy when he was here. I have a soft spot for back-up catchers. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2023/04/nationals-sign-kevin-plawecki-to-minor-league-deal.html
