    2020 Catch-All

    Are we allowed to start a thread or comment here about the riots in Chicago Sunday night? Heard and read it was bad. Hope everybody is safe amid the chaos.
  2. I like watching our guys play, but cmon, it's a joke. St. Louis has played five games. Guys are getting hurt at an alarming rate, which is serious. This season is a disaster, but good experience for our kids.
  3. It's a perfect year for Robert to get used to MLB. This season, quite frankly, is a joke. It is what it is. Some baseball to enjoy. In Sox case some youngsters can get some MLB at bats. Robert will adjust. His BA is great. 22 Ks in 59 at bats. Whatever. All big league standouts will have a zillion strikeout during their careers considering the new norma (K or HR). Love me some Robert.
  4. Not in the mood to watch 7 Sox relievers go after a bad Anderson outing. I'm out at 6-0 after watching nice win last nite. Hope we can rally.

    Ozzie isn't very good on the Pre/Post-Game

    Amen brother! I love Ozzie. I am loyal to WS champions. That's my take. I have one title in my lifetime and he did a fine job that postseason.

    Bummer leaves with injury

    I know I made a post in the preseason that there will probably be a ton of injuries this season. I'm not the only one. Should they have held two more weeks of summer, spring training? This is crazy. Sox pitching can't afford many more injuries or they are going to have to acquire some independent league hacks.
  7. Those two strikes were hittable ... damn.

    2020 College Football thread

    Is the Valley today going to allow nonconference games in Sept., but postpone league action until spring? Weird.

    So who's the next manager?

    So who's the next manager?

    In the words of every politician after a commercial, "I do not approve this message." I disagree with a lot of this. I don't like shifts. I love the few times players bunt in that vast area of green left by shifts.

    So who's the next manager?

    Don't. forget, Ned Yost won a WS title. The Cubs' genius finally was escorted out the door. You got good players you win; bad ones you lose. You think a baseball mind like RR doesn't know he's rolling the dice a lot because of a sub par pitching staff? He knows Eloy is sub par in left. He can't go out there and demand Eloy take fungoes for 3 hours a day. Eloy has to work on his defense in the off seasons. Did he? Dunno. Not much RR can do about pitching staff injuries and sit-outs and lack of effective arms. It works together arm in arm with Hahn but despite many questionable moves by RR, I don't think it matters much. Even Dusty ... he's never won a WS so many think he's bad. I'm just saying, Ricky may deserve a grade of C to C- but does it matter? Why did the Cubs start to sour on Mr. Analytics? Etc. And I won't lose any sleep if Ricky is fired.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    Geez. This is utterly scary and depressing.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    Kansas, Missouri and Kentucky have an awful lot of new cases. Like KC today and every day lately, something like 400 new cases?? WTF is happening in the world with this virus? 400 is a lot of people to wake up yesterday and say, "I think I've got corona." Everybody's masking up now in Lawrence at least. These numbers are annoying me. Also Kentucky seems to get 400 new cases a day. WTF. (I'd like to start laying into China where this disease was invented right now in this post, but not sure it's allowed to freak out).

    8/6/20 vs. BrewCrew @ 7:10PMCT

    My only complaint about modern all or nothing, HR or strikeout hitters, is with two strikes I'd prefer they just try to get a hit. I'm thinking the odds of turning a 1-2 or 0-2 count into a HR are pretty low. There will be a ton of games our stars do hit multiple-homers, however.

    I love Bennetti and Stone. I really do. I take exception to their pretending we had a chance to rally and win from five down with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. I coulda have done without that homer-ism there. Cmon, don't insult us. The team is one under .500 not some juggernaut yet. Just my pet peeve. Sox were not going to rally and win with one out to spare and needing a five-spot to tie. I do love the duo and enjoyed Stoney talking about Bruce Sutter's splitter, etc. Bad loss BTW. We pretty much got smoked.
