    The Blake Snell Thread

    OK you guys are splitting hairs a bit more than I had in my mind when I worried about 'losing the trade'. If it was close and pushed you over the edge, of course it would be worthwhile. My bigger concern is that the Rays front office usually makes the right move - and if they're all of the sudden wanting to move Snell - I'm suspicious as to why. I know they like to recycle their assets, but I would be concerned that there might be more to this from their point of view.

    The Blake Snell Thread

    The Sox don't have the payroll might to make a Sale type trade, where you expect to ultimately lose the trade value-wise. They gotta hold on tight to cheap controllable talent.

    The Blake Snell Thread

    I wouldn't make a move for Snell. I wouldn't like our chances of winning a trade with Tampa. And if you do give up Kopech and Vaughn, and then Snell doesn't work out (he's only thrown more than 129 IP once)...you may of just ruined the rebuild with this trade. Just open up the checkbook Jerry and sign Bauer. Then we have a more reliable #1 than Snell, and we get to keep Vaughn and Kopech.

    Some much needed good news - Crochet

    Good news....for now
  5. I do think TLR should resign. And I hope he does. But taking this to complaining to advertisers seems overboard. And ultimately could really hurt this franchise long-term if any of them actually pull their advertising from the Sox (doubtful).

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    Signing Trevor Bauer would be a nice silver lining.

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    It would feel weird to me to hire Tony La Russa when he's almost 80. But eh, if they do, they do. Hopefully big spending comes this winter with whatever managerial decision is made. That's the more thing here And if they do hire TLR, man that will bring me back to my childhood. I was 11 years old in the right field upper deck on the day they clinched the division in 83. Those are some great memories.

    Mazara and Right Field Thread

    The difference is, Mazara was already at a point of his team giving up on him before COVID hit him and his performance slipped. The Sox need to find something better.

    Convince Me: Marcus Stroman

    Didn't Stroman opt out in 2020? What makes anyone think he wont do that again next year? The pandemic isn't going to go poof and go away, no matter what our president says.

    Shifts could be endangered

    Shifting has always happened, but it's spiraled out of control in recent years. I guess I'll be the lone one in support of this if it happens. I've always found it lame to stack one side of the infield. Put the onus back on the pitcher to not let the hitter get hard contact.

    What would you have done ...

    I think it's way easier for us to sit here Monday morning quarterbacking and say we would of quit or blown it open. But in real life, you don't narc on your team and co-workers. I suspect most of us would of done similar to what AJ did.

    Will the Front Office Fire Renteria?

    As someone else said, my heart says yes, but my head is skeptical. But I'll take the leap of faith and say yes. They've invested so much in this rebuild. Why would you let an idiot steer the ship with so much on the line?

    Pitchers for game 3

    The Yankees would be favorites if they played the Sox. But the Sox absolutely could beat them. Baseball is weird. You're hot for 5 games, then ice cold. If the Sox start playing like they did 3-4 weeks ago, they can roll through any team.
  14. Why would anyone want Maddon? The Cubs won the series in 2016 despite his bad managing, not because of it. If the Sox win today, this discussion is moot. They won't can him if he wins a playoff series.
