  1. Yup. I’m most excited that we beat the living shit out of the Royals. If we play around .500 against the big dogs and beat up the bad teams...that means we’re one of the better teams. Considering all the injuries, absolute A+ so far boys.
  2. Pretty sure Ricky has a mandate to play our most marketable players tonight.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    Don’t you get it yet man? Without knowing asymptomatic and unreported mildly symptomatic cases.....wait for it.....wait for it..... keep waiting...get your popcorn ready bud....here it comes............THERE IS NO SCIENTIFICALLY-VERIFIABLE EVIDENCE. There’s only population numbers, hospitalization numbers, and dead people numbers. That’s it.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    Thank you. That’s all I’ve ever said. Getting lumped in with the Screw-Covid crowd basically led me to stop posting about it. I’ve been personally affected by the virus- I take it very seriously. Thinking way more people have been exposed is never talked about. It’s strange. It would mean the death rate is magnitudes lower, which would ruin a lot of narratives I guess? I don’t get it. There’s definitely evidence pointing to that now, so my new question is, when is it time to talk about it? When can we posit questions without getting flamed? It’s been 6 months. Clearly not yet.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus thread

    That was my guess at the time. I’d say that’s probably more accurate now? The point is I still think way more people have it and have had it than is reported...by many MAGNITUDES. And nobody is shrugging anything off. It’s just almost time to acknowledge that pretty much everybody was wrong, by a loooong shot. Which is a good thing! Less dead people is good! I’ll never understand the people rooting for death.

    Damnit. All those Europeans are still vulnerable to the virus? Who’d have guessed? Damnit and all those Swedes finally died. The exponential death was inevitable. Now we have 2000 dead in a day. Here comes the exponential spike. Probably be at a million by the end of the month. Liz Specht was right for sure.

    MADRIGAL CALLED UP! (Herrera DFA)

    I like least power last. Tim 8 Nick 9 ?
  8. Maybe in the 60-game season with expanded rosters we can? 20% of the season is over already. GioG plus 2-3 long guys might have to eat up some innings. If we get to the playoffs with our top 3 healthy, I think we can lean on them.

    Early thoughts on new rules

    Haven’t watched one yet but that seems kinda cool too?

    Early thoughts on new rules

    I absolutely love the 3-guy reliever rule. Finally there is overwhelming necessity for thinking and strategy in baseball. I had no idea what to expect, but so far it just seems more fun. What do you think?
  11. It’s easier to care less about this year because almost every player on the team is awesome

    MADRIGAL CALLED UP! (Herrera DFA)

    But Madrigal IS a high ceiling guy. He’s not a floor guy. his floor is a guy with no power who can’t find holes and is completely useless. His ceiling is a guy who can control the strike zone and barrel historically better than almost anybody ever. It’s weird.

    8/2 Sox vs Royals GT

    It’s just simplifying it. The goal of the draft is to get really good baseball players that help your team. It’s easy to win Ceiling Trophies in the draft. Pretty much every guy drafted outside of college seniors is a ceiling guy. Either you convert drafts into WAR or you don’t. Madrigal’s ceiling is actually through the roof as one of the most unique players in the game. He’s a weird case.

    Team Runs Scored in 2020

    We can’t forget the Cardinals who used to have the Pujols/Rolen/Edmonds combo. Don’t think the Cubs, Brewers, Reds & Pirates have forgotten those days for one second. Hell even the Astros remember from 2005 and they were running out the killer B’s, Clemens, Pettite & Oswalt. Robert, Moncada, Jimenez, Grandal, Abreu is going to be epic especially knowing that Vaughn is waiting in the wings. He just has to leap frog Encarnacion/Collins and team up with Abreu. Mazara is out there too so you can’t sleep on Engel/Delmonico fighting for their lives. Reminds me of other AL powerhouses from the East years back when Boston/New York were tops with the Rays and Baltimore close behind

    United Airlines- Any Ideas?

    Easy Karen, they probably just laid off tens of thousands of people and have no idea how to project future revenues and expenses. They got you there, call them and thank them.
