    So how do you guys think Joe Borchard is handling the pandemic?

    I'm with you on the disappointment of putting work in for a race and having it feel wasted. But hey, the fitness is there, keep it going and now you can run an even faster marathon in the fall! Once my spring race got cancelled I decided to focus on 5k speed so that when I do marathon training in the fall I will be faster than I would have otherwise.

    Am I a jerk?

    Yeah I agree. Its not too late to tell them that you went about doing it the wrong way. I know its sort of embarrassing to go back now, but they are your friends. Get together with them and have a calm discussion about the reality of how that way of speaking makes you feel. Like others said, if they really are friends worth having, they'll respect that. If not, then you can just stopping hanging out with them.

    SoxTalk fan pulse: How far away are the Sox from competing?

    If competing just means over .500 then next year is likely. If it means competing for playoffs, then 2021. I think there is a lot of assumptions being made that are not sure things, particularly starting pitching being competitive. Kopech only has a few MLB starts, nothing for sure says he will be definitively effective in general (not even taking into account that he is coming back from a year off with injury).

    Will Luis Robert be the #1 Prospect in Baseball?

    Possibly. I think the only 2 reasons he may not be would be his age (will be 22 soon) and his durability (not sure how much publications take this into account). You do have Wander Franco as an 18 year old enjoying A+ quite a bit.

    Does anybody else smile a little and feel all warm inside every time they scroll through and see the word "fulcrum" in the thread title?
