    MLB cheating scandal

    I would've liked to have seen them get hit with a stricter luxury tax threshold as well. It's 208 million for 2020. For the Astros, should have it lowered to like 125 million or something and they have to pay the taxes this year and leave something in place for a few years instead of a 5 million fine.

    Yeah, not offended by it either. Just always been annoyed my whole life how every one thinks I just randomly jumped on the Favre bandwagon.

    I am from Chicago, live in Chicago and am a lifelong Packers fan. My grandparents were big Chicago Cardinals fans. They hated the Bears/Cubs and were all about the Sox and Cardinals. When the Cardinals left for St. Louis in 1960, my grandparents couldn't stomach rooting for them in another city but also still hated the Bears and couldn't root for them. My grandfather swore off pro-football but my grandma ended up a Packers fan out of her hate for the Bears. There was a hardcore subset of Cardinals fans that eventually just picked another team to follow. So maybe the reasons are petty or stupid why she chose that team but growing up, I was close with my grandma and start watching games with her as a kid in the Don Majkowski days. Been my team ever since. If I am not a true Chicagoan because of that, then so be it.

    Sox @ Boston, 6:10

    I just walk away from the tv when Alonso comes to the plate. I don’t need to see the AB or the frustration it provides.

    Yeah maybe Ricky should get tossed cause Blaser sucks, but I haven’t seen anyone move closer to the plate to take away that outside strike either. If you know they are pounding that part of the zone all night and getting the call, you can’t just go up there doing the same thing and expect different results

    I’d be cool with a hit by pitch

    The cub fans should be giving Blaser an ovation cause Lester sure didn’t look all that great tonight

    Man, one mediocre outing and there are people just ready to rail on Lucas. Get a life. Even the best pitchers in baseball get rocked once in awhile. It happens. Some people on this board act like life is over and they are ready to jump off a ledge the instant a guy makes one bad play or has one bad outing.

    6/4 Games

    Yeah, I know the team isn't going to confirm it but I personally have not seen any reliable source say anything to hint it's soon. I heard maybe after the all-star break but nothing concrete. Are we past the super 2 deadline at this point?

    Is this confirmed or we all just speculating still?

    Sox vs Indians 5/14 1:10PM CT

    Played in every game this year so he gets today and tomorrow to rest and is 0-12 career against Carrasco.

    You're probably right, but I can still be hopelessly optimistic for now.

    Back up the brinks truck for Gerrit Cole. I would like to see catcher, 2B and RF upgraded but this team is putting up enough offense to compete but they need a TOR arm badly. Yes, we have a few young guys who can be that guy down the road, but would be nice to have that legit ace heading the rotation to take some of the pressure off the young guys.

    Sox @ Jays: 6:07pm CT

    Buchholz is scratched for tonight. Daniel Hudson is going as their "opener"
