  1. Sounds like it’s confirmed. Wow

    I don't see how pitch framing works?

    A couple things that absolutely fascinate me about framing: prior to all the data coming out on this, we subjectively knew that framing was a real thing (I’ll never forget the effusive praise for Charles Johnson when we traded for him back circa 2000ish). However I don’t think we (or at least myself personally) realized quite how often some guys were getting extra calls. I kinda figured it was one here or there, but the data suggests that it happens all the time- several times a game. In retrospect, it makes sense too- the pitchers are the best of the best at this, and essentially live on the edge of the zone the entire game. And secondly, I always knew it was a huge difference between being 2-1 vs. 1-2 or 1-0 vs. 0-1, but it’s super cool to be able to translate that combined with framing data into actual expected runs saved

    Feels like the league panicked at the thought of having to review the final play
  5. if madrigal and or vaughn are in a deal it better be for a stud with at least 4 years cost controlled. those are the types of guys you can trade away when you are 1 piece away (ie gleyber for chapman), not trying to improve on a 72 win season

    Sox acquire Nomar Mazara for Steele Walker

    Do people realize he is younger than Zach Collins?

    Sox acquire Nomar Mazara for Steele Walker

    People don’t realize how big of a difference it is from A ball to the majors.

    Sox in on Marcell Ozuna? I mean, maybe. Or not.

    Is that the former cubs pitcher Frank Castillo?

    Rodon to IL; Giolito activated

    edema within the flexor mass is essentially what you would see with a flexor muscle strain. Unlike golfers or tennis elbow, which involve the tendinous insertions from the proximal arm , this involves inflammation around the tendinous insertions or within the flexor compartment of the forearm. Of course they dont comment on the integrity of the ligaments (ie the UCL/ tommy john ligament), but i'm guessing none of this portends a positive outcome.

    2 more HR for bleday. 19 on the year. I still don’t think he’s the right pick at 3 but it’s getting to the point where it would be hard to be mad if he got taken at 3
  13. yonder might be slower than konerko
  14. apparently that GIDP had 110 mph exit velo.

    Bleday has been on an absolute tear. Been a pleasure to watch. Can't believe the power has developed to this extent - always had a great balanced left stroke. Hit and oppo bomb yesterday that hit memorial gym - serious power

    Thoughts on schedule for how difficult their schedule is (ie playing NO, LAC, LAR, KC, Phi) they have a few nice breaks.... First part of the season...have a chance to be 5-0 going into BYE (not predicting it by any means - but should certainly be minimum 3-2 and hopefully 4-1. road games are against favorable opponents. Long week before they travel to Den. Oak loses home game by playing in London really tough stretch coming off the bye, but.....at least we get NO playing outdoors and coming off a bye week. LAC at home followed by @ phi (feels like one of those two games will be flexed to primtime) is tough. Then Giants, @ lions again on thanksgiving. Kind of a bummer they dont get the extended week to host dallas and have to turn around again on the following thursday, but at least its at home. Really important and tough stretch to end season - @ GB will be tough. At least we get KC at home in cold weather. @ min tough too, but vikings could be out of it by then potentially.

    bleday on fire lately with 5 HR in last 14 ABs. .362/.458/.733 11 HR 20BB 22K as a team my commodores are hitting .325/.427/.503. Pitching traditionally our strong suit is finally rounding in to form too. Hard to say because in a 3 game super regional anything can happen, but anything other than Omaha will be a disappointment
  18. IIRC the rumor got floated like a day or two before dodgerfest (or whatever their equivalent of soxfest is) and Joc had a prominent PR role in it. While we are all uneducatedly speculating as to what might have happened - Seems plausible to me the dodgers said “wait a week to let anyone know,” then they saw the likes of WSD, Richard roeper and Peggy kuszinskis son for crying out loud tweet about this. They got pissed and backed out

    before the season started I was hoping there would be a chance bleday would be available in round 2, but it hes played himself into a top 10 or top 15 pick it seems like. Bryant certainly is the natural comp for Vaughn - although bryant turned himself into a valuable piece as a defender and baserunner, something vaughn likely won't do.

    Vaughn with 2 more HR today. Up to 7 on the year already. Tanking matters. And it matters to be number 1. Not number 3. The data supports that (even if Vaughn is available at 3 still - which he still could be)
