  1. Guess his mandate from the FO is to crush all fan dreams and be a gratuitous dick about it in the process

    Trade Whispers - Starting Pitchers

    Yes, they're lazy. And unable to respond to your airtight argument, so they just deflect. They're really just admitting defeat in the argument because they can't respond to one of your points, even though they're in bullets. It's actually sad and absurd how lazy they are. Just lazy and deflecting, so they can't respond to your argument out of laziness, and not paying attention. Instead they just deflect. It's absurd how much their deflecting just proves your point, really. And lazy.

    Wow - that's a lot.
  5. And I would give you a "no worries" emoji if I could. Instead I will give that Tom Cruise guy a laugh emoji in your name.
  6. Huh? That's 100% consistent with what I said. Ricky didn't play to win at the end (i.e. "didn't finish off the division race."). The FO wasn't on board with that approach at all. (Neither was I).
  7. The willful amnesia about this obvious fact is astonishing. Ricky essentially said he was "experimenting" with crazy bullpen decisions once we clinched. Resting players. Putting bad/recently-injured relievers in highest-leverage situations to "test" them. We were obviously the best team in the division in 2020 and didn't care about our seeding once we clinched and went 3 games up on the Twins.

    This thread is so far up its own a$$ it's long since disappeared. But I have to say that every time I'm reading a super-earnest, overwrought post screaming at others to stop using laugh emojis, then I hear the little "blip" and see a laugh emoji appear next to the post, I actually laugh out loud. As the kids say, this is what I'm "here for"

  10. This game of Food guys "Among Us" is one of the weirdest things to ever happen on this board.
  11. Last 13 or 14 years probably works. But I will say that the willingness to spend top-of-market in the 2000s when Jerry really believed we were contenders has kept me holding out hope that we might get back there again during this window. Part of me wonders whether Jerry just doesn't quite buy that we're there yet.
  12. If you lower the bar for what it means to be "in on" a trade/FA low enough, they probably were.
  13. It is often forgotten that the Sox had a top-5 payroll multiple seasons in the last 20 years.
  14. The nice thing about our situation is we have Vaughn waiting in the wings. We also have a stacked lineup. The risk is significantly mitigated by these factors; we won't rise or fall with Cruz.
  15. If you ask EE and Cruz next to stand next to each other, then you bake a cake, then you write "better player" on the cake in frosting, then choose the better player, then give that person the cake, Nelson Cruz would receive aforementioned cake
