    The TLR Manager Thread

    Yeah, not only doubling down, but now speaking in a demeaning way about your stud pitcher? What a leader of men.

    Trade Whispers - Starting Pitchers

    You have to really do some mental gymnastics to make it true, but I'm almost positive the people saying biggest reliever contract ever mean that it's $54 mil guaranteed, even if he pitches three years for the Sox. In that case, he technically has the highest AAV of any reliever ever.
  3. They are definitely not picking up that fourth year. They might as well say it right now. The only reason it's there is to make the AAV look higher than it actually is. This is a 3 year deal for $39 mil. The 1.5 a year each year for a decade is basically nothing, big picture.

    2021 Plan for Kopech and Crochet

    I did see the Mr. Show live show. I wanna say they had to call it something different, because like you said, it was years after Mr. Show aired, but I could be wrong about that. I remember laughing my ass off, though.

    2021 Plan for Kopech and Crochet

    It feels like every pitcher in professional baseball gets TJ at some point, these days. I was actually happy when I first heard that Cease had "gotten his out of the way" years ago.

    2021 Plan for Kopech and Crochet

    Bob Odenkirk is tied with Jim Thome for the nicest celebrity I've ever met, in person. I don't like bothering famous people out in public, but way back in the day, when I was working as a route driver for a spring water company, I got assigned to deliver to both the set and the office for the movie "Let's go to Prison". I didn't expect to see Bob Odenkirk while I was there, but when I saw him in the office like ten feet from where I was setting up a water cooler, I had to dork out to him over my love for "Mr. Show". Not only was he not annoyed that the water guy was bugging him on the set of his film, but he got up and came over and enthusiastically engaged me in conversation for like ten minutes. Awesome, awesome guy (at least on that day). Whenever I see his name mentioned I feel compelled to mention that.

    Blake Snell and Yu Darvish traded to San Diego

    They acquired very raw, super young talent. Basically lottery ticket prospects. That's not at all in line with what they are outwardly saying, that they are going to do a "re-tooling" ala Boston, not rebuild. Then they traded their most valuable piece for guys that, if they're super lucky, two of them pan out, and in maybe four or five years.

    What is Moncada's Value?

    What's the possible point of getting into the minutia of analyzing numbers on a guy who played a very small number of games immediately after "recovering" from a virus that, while there is still very much we do not know about, one thing that we do know is that a significant percentage of people who get it experience chronic fatigue for several months? Especially when the guy we are talking about flat out told us that he was feeling those effects for the entire short season, and the numbers on his foot/bat speed seem to back up that claim? This all seems like a pretty pointless exercise, no?
  9. Just because somebody doesn't have an immediate take on something doesn't mean that they are a coward. If he just found out like us, I understand his waiting a day or so.

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    How so? Kershaw was bad in the postseason before Roberts even got there.

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    It's not Dave Roberts' fault that Clayton Kershaw is a garbage fire in the playoffs.

    Trevor Bauer Thread (Mazara Free Zone)

    From what I can tell, Hahn plays this stuff incredibly close to the vest. The Grandal thing came out of absolute nowhere, as did several of the extensions he pulled off.

    Sox @ A’s - Wildcard Game 3 - 2:10

    WTF is going on, seriously? It's gotta be Eloy-related, right? I mean it's practically gametime

    Sox @ A’s - Wildcard Game 3 - 2:10

    I think we have more talent, they have more seasoned veterans. This game is a coin flip IMO. Also, Nicky needs to work on fielding grounders at the cut of the grass. It is consistently a problem for him. He's a baby, though, he'll get better.
