    Garrett Crochet

    What about that great curve ball Crochet throws? And, that was a super curve he threw for the strikeout before he was pulled. Does that kind of pitch create UCL problems? I could be wrong here, but it seems like many have put one of his feet into the operating room way too soon.

    Minor League Upheaval

    Wasn't it just a year or so ago that some posters were advocating the Sox expand their minor league teams. And, it made sense. We even admired those teams with the extra affiliate, like Astros, Yanks, etc. Now the contraction fever is taking hold everywhere. Simultaneously, there was pressure to increase pay to minor leaguers, based on minimum wage concepts, etc. Then Covid hit us. Things are changing fast.

    That contract is beyond awful. Doesn't say much for the GM, who is on his last legs in Denver.

    Sox claim Emilio Vargas

    Who would you rather have, Rodon or Vargus?

    Jake Burger Thread

    Sox must have seen something they liked. I sure hope we have a minor league season, so that we can see how Burger and Sheets do in high minors, not to mention Vaughn, wherever he ends up.

    Yonder Alonso Retires

    Not the worst deal Hahn ever did. Most laughable, though.
  8. If I were the Tigers, I would jump on Burger like a tall dog. If we have a season next year, they will know by June if he is worth it. If not, they release him or give him back.

    2021 Hall of Fame Ballot

    Had to laugh. At least his first 3056 hits were valid. Which MVP season are you talking about? Rose leads majors in lifetime hits and runs scored, but he is just good and not great?

    Refresh my memory on the rain delay, please. Rizzo?

    Jose Abreu wins 2020 AL MVP

    I posted this elsewhere a while back, but it is also appropriate here. It's too bad Jose didn't get here 2-4 years earlier, because he could/would be looking at HOF numbers.
  12. Sorry if this was already covered, but why did it take Arizona authorities 8 months to charge him? Incident was in Feb, charged in Oct.
  13. The Commish should get involved. Good of baseball, etc.
  14. Relax. He'll be gone soon. No one could survive the mess that is just getting started.
