    Abreu- does he stay or go?

    Most contracts favor the team early and the player later. I’ve always looked at the average per year. Deals get structured this way hoping for increasing team revenues not expecting productivity to increase.
  2. That’s a beautiful thought. I see both of y’all are kind of new posters, welcome to Soxtalk.

    Gun Violence in America

    I see the pictures of the students and teacher that was killed today then look up from my desk and see my students. I look in the hall and see my fellow teachers. Any of us could be next. That my fellow soxtalkers sucks.

    Missing Malaysian Airliner thread

    Interesting theory.

    Why not hire Ozzie? Make things interesting.

    At his best, I could agree with that. At his worst, which was for a long stretch in Chicago, he is beyond the worst manager in baseball. Average them together and I will take the other two.

    Automobile Thread

    I was just looking through some promo stuff Ford sent me on the new F-150. I've been considering the diesel but likely will wait until I retire and have more of a need for a diesel. What caught my eye was they are integrating Amazon Alexa into the truck. I use the hell out of mine at home and I'm thinking it would be great in the truck. Even better would be incorporating Waze navigation into the on board display.

    I wish Ozzie was the name that could not be mentioned. He burned bridges that should never be rebuilt. Not just with the organizations he managed, but also for MLB in general.

    2018 Democrats thread

    Presidents get too much credit and too much blame. One of the biggest contributions they make is being a cheerleader. Trump has a group of Americans cheering that we haven't heard from since the early 1950s. Why did everyone love Reagan? After the scandals of Nixon, the clumsiness of Ford, and the wimpiness of Carter he was a bigger than life cowboy literally riding in on the white horse to save us. Clinton? A sax playing young good looking guy after the octogenarian Reagan and the "is it is mother or wife?" Bush duo. Cheerleading when we wanted it.

    Sox vs Cards @ Busch, 7:15pm

    One thing I know from many years here, statements like this are almost always correct. I only checked because as an English teacher I enjoy the linguistics. They could right the throw has to beat the runner, which would have one meaning, but they wrote the runner has to beat the throw. Edge to defense, which surprises me.

    2018 catch-all

    Isn't one of the underlying principles of our justice system that people can be rehabilitated? What I'm wondering is how is he paying his bills? He has to be in his 60s or close to 70.

    PC Culture Gone Mad

    While I agree this is over board, so too is the fuck you I can insult anyone I want and if you actually get insulted you are part of the PC b.s. crowd. People once upon a time had manners. Is was considered impolite to insult someone.

    2018 catch-all

    Five or so weeks of school left. Then three weeks of training. Then heading north to cooler temps.
