1. I miss posting this.

2. Is it too much to want to post this 60 times (regular season)?

A winning record of 1.000 on July 24 is unprecedented. The 2020 team is historically good. Water.

Last night was fun. The piped in fan noise didn't bother me a bit. In fact the I would say that for the most part if we didn't know it was piped in, we wouldn't know it was piped in. Yes the fan cut outs looked strange, more so because of the fact that so many were close up shots of the fans which kind of magnified the oddity of it. But in the end it just became background. We saw our first extra inning game under the new rules and while I'm not a huge fan, it wasn't horrible. Perhaps the fact that it ended with a walk off grand slam helped ease my discomfort with the new rule. National League DH...IMO it's long overdue as interleague play has pushed the game in that direction and most pitchers don't really seem to give a shit about hitting any more. I'm happy to see baseball back. I'm looking forward to seeing how Chaim's early moves pan out. I want to see Eovaldi come through the season healthy. I want to see younger players have some sort of opportunity and I don't want to wait until next year to see these things. I want to see enough of this season played so we have an idea of next season's needs. Once we understood the logistics it was going to take to present any sort of 2020 season we should have been well aware that the season was going to be anything put typical. Am I going to be thrilled by everything I see? Nope. Will I bitch about everything that doesn't thrill me? I hope not because we truly have no idea how long this may last. Welcome back baseball and GO SOX!!!

Did we find out why Eovaldi changed uni numbers?
Haven't heard anything more from last night. Remy speculated (admitting that it was a long shot) that perhaps Vazquez's locker is next to Eovaldi's and he mistakenly went to Vazquez's locker to change. I'm thinking it might have been something as simple one of the clubhouse guys hanging on of CV's jerseys in Eovaldi's locker and it went unnoticed. Not a stretch given the similarity in numbers and the fact that there are no names on the back.
