    RIP Roland Hemond

    My Athletic Director did an internship for the Sox when Hemond was GM. Said that he sat with Hemond virtually every game for at least part of it. Nothing bu great things to say. RIP

    MiLB Rule 5 on Wed

    The 25 man roster in both leagues was set in 1914. https://www.baseball-almanac.com/articles/baseball_rosters.shtml it became part of the CBA in 1968 (per wiki). The roster was limited to 24 from 86-89 due “escalating player salaries.” It moved back to 25 until the recent increase to 26.

    Welcome to the MLB work stoppage

    I’ll go with Feb. 29. You can pick the year.
  4. Honestly, I’m not a big fan of the name Cavan, but to each his own. Biggio is fine.
  5. 1. OJ Simpson…still resides in our consciousness as a country. 2. Miracle on Ice…what it did for the countries psyche at the time can’t be overstated. 3. Magic Johnson seems reasonable as do a few others, but the first two have stood the test of time and stand above the rest.

  7. In honor of National cursing day tomorrow…fuck!

    Based on the amount of swearing here and how much I enjoy it, did you know Friday is National Cursing Day? I so hope the Sox are in game one of the ALCS that day. This place could be epic. 😁

    This sucks because if the Sox don’t pull this out who the hell do you root for between the cheaters and the asshats?

    Exactly. They made their bed, let them sleep in it.

    That was the appropriate ending…a blown strike call by Hallion.
