  1. I think the eyes are good. I just think he needs to figure out what a strike is. Continuously getting wrung up on a pitch a hair outside the zone is okup until it keeps happening. The Big Hurt had a great eye but you bet your ass if he was getting wrung up left and right just off the plate he would of adjusted. He just kept with the idea that it isn't a strike and the umpires were going to adjust to him.
  2. I would rather watch the video of him working with Omar Vizquel on catching baseballs and footwork.
  3. Then you will get 9 tweets after that. 1 stating the terms of the proposal, leaked by the agent. The next will be Bruce Levine posting that the sox are not going over 3 years and 10 per year. the next tweet will be from a foreign source repeating the terms of the team. Then a mystery team will be in offering 10 years + and a higher AAV. As long as they come out with one of the two superstars, thats all that matters.

    The Saints defense is definitely not the Bears defense. Foles and the offense are going off.

    Dont give me this. You didnt need to be a fortune teller to see that a guy who keeps doinking the upper left crossbar over and over was going to do this in the playoffs.

    Sox could still bring back Avi

    However El Rockin would be thrilled with that move.

    Sox interested in Encarnacion per Morosi

    The irony here is the front office could have negated this by being quiet. Fake Reporter "I hear you are looking at Harper or Manny. " Fake Hahn or Kenny "We are committed to the process here. We are excited about the next wave of our young players that are coming up and look for that to provide star power. Its an exciting time for our organization." Then you go and bid for both. If nothing happens with it, no one is the wiser. Talking about things in the open press is stupid.

    Harper: Nightengale suggests Phillies are favored

    They need to hit on either one of Harper or Machado. Missing out on both, and having one go to the Cubs is a formula for disaster.

    Harper: Nightengale suggests Phillies are favored

    This should do wonders for the Sox franchise in Chicago.

    Harper: Nightengale suggests Phillies are favored

    If they dealt Heyward why would they need to have Harper in CF.

    Machado: Update - Manny, do you officially like us?

    If we lose out to the Yankees hopefully it's in regards to the Sox having the highest offer and it was just Manny wanting to be a Yankee.. The worst case scenario would be that we, in fact, didn't have the highest offer.

    Levine works through the old ways.

    Harper: Nightengale suggests Phillies are favored

    With what magical money. No one is taking Heyward.
  14. The Reds are providing eyewash to their fanbase while being a mule for the Dodgers to finish off their roster.
