The Plawecki/McGuire thing against RHP is now a Thing

Benny’s catch to end the ‘18 ALCS was great. But can’t put it in the upper tier of heroic post season moments. Maybe second tier? Think he’ll get a standing orgasm for that?

If you combine it with Joe Castig falling out his chair.......

The game-ending catch was pretty enough, but I remember Benintendi more for this gallant running catch:

To piss you off. Cora is not a fan of your posts. I've lost count of how many he's reported.
I know it seems like a minor thing to be frustrated by ... but we know what Plawecki can and can't do at this point. Might as well see is McGuire is an improvement.

Call me sentimental, but any championship ring owner returning to Fenway should get a standing o.

Edit: Except for guys who sell their souls to the mfy.

I’d group top ten of last 50 years as tier one… so asking if that catch is in the “top ten” of Red Sox playoff highlights?
I’d say no. Maybe not even too 20.
Good idea for an off-season poll
That’s kind of not fair to everyone other than Ortiz

I agree. At this point the only thing Plawecki can do is take up a roster spot. Can't hit. Can't throw. Can't run.

Wow, just saw the news about Tatis and 80 games suspension for PED’s. Awkward!

yankees have been so bad that it's hard to remember even when they're bad, they're still 50x better than the sox.
