    5/22 GT - Sox @ NYY (Double Header)

    Making the playoffs is also vital to this team, and we’re staring down m a 6 game deficit 40 games into the season after tonight. TA abso-fucking-lutely should be playing both games today with 3 off days in the next week. At what point to Larussa decide the games matter? Once we’re 10 games back? 15? August? Dudes a clown.

    This notion sounds simple enough on the surface, but it’s my understanding that many people of color have a lot of pride in their race and heritage. Skin color should be able to be celebrated, not ignored.

    Yep benching your best hitter always seems a bit strange to me, but keeping TA fit and healthy is vital to this team so maybe TLR is being cautious?

    At the heart of it is when black people communicate their experiences, or perception of, and other folks that don't know what it is like to be black other than to imagine, then proceed to tell black people that black people don't understand, or are lying, or are wrong. That's very dismissive and arrogant, and if you ask me, reveals disdain. Personally, Josh Donaldson may be a racist, but his biggest driving quality is that he is a douchebag that instinctively knows how to troll. I think Timmy may have overstepped when he compared himself to Jackie. But I also read his comments, and found them to be very reasonable comments. That's what Donaldson did, try to invalidate Timmy's feelings because for him, trolling is fun, and that will cause people to fight a troll occasionally.

    Why in the flying fuck is TA not playing? God damn it I hate Larussa.

    This is what I was trying to say but you said it better.

    MLBN took the side of the Yankees player. The sky is blue. Dirt is dirty. Ice is cold.

    Just watch what comes out of Joy Reids mouth, if you don't agree with her, you are a racist.

    To win so do the bats need to bring their A game and get across more than the 3 -13 RISP they got yesterday.

    TLR benched Tim instead. Even if you take race out of the equation, it's sports and you need to have a fire to compete and win to avenge yesterdays loss and insult immediately. No backing down ! If the Sox lose both games it will totally suck and I will blame TLR for sitting Tim in the 1st game . This 1st game after yesterdays game should be looked at as a statement game. TLR is making a statement . I am afraid !

    I too can't seem to find any information on the skillset of said player. But bloodlines!

    Sox close to signing Juan Uribe Jr

    Juans catch in the 9th of game 4 made Jeters catch look kinda lame.

    Its the 2022 version of "know your place, boy". Same message, new words.

    I’m grasping at straws as to why the change was made. It makes no sense to sit TA or toss out a AAAA lineup ahead of an off day.

    The wealth transfer that has happened over centuries because of racism and racist policies is a real thing. If your opponent gets a 50 meter head start in a 100 meter race, you don't get to claim the race was fair because the last 50 meters were run equally. The irony here is that your last sentence was 100% correct, but for 100% the wrong reasons. In 2019 the average white family in the US had almost $200k in wealth. The average black family was $25k. Even if you were able to wave a magic wand to make every single bit of racism in the US disappear, that gap does not because wealth is transferred generationally. These are people who start from behind in wealth, live in substandard neighborhoods, attend substandard schools, with lower funding, and have fewer work opportunities even when of equal qualifications in the job market. This IS a never ending loop that will never go away unless something is done. https://www.brookings.edu/blog/up-front/2020/12/08/the-black-white-wealth-gap-left-black-households-more-vulnerable/

    Too much for what? I don't know if it was racist or not. But what has been thrown around way too much the last few years is the stuff where other people tell black people not to be offended, or that they don't understand 'tone'

    Kath homer to right CF. Camera work was horrible so not going to be any pretty video on it.

    I can’t believe we are still doing “Skin color doesn’t matter” in 2022.

    straight up cowardly by TLR. SMDH

    If you don't see the racist undertones here, you don't want to. You might even not be able to understand them because of your upbringing, but that doesn't mean they aren't there, nor can you just handwave them away. Understanding the explicit racism that Robinson experienced and why TA could connect to that is 100% race based. Pretending that racism doesn't exist doesn't fix the problem.

    Martin gives up another 3 run blast on a hanging curve.
