    I liked what I saw of Hill vs Boston. Just wondering what Jordan Bell did or didn't do to not get a longer look, considering their desperate need for size. Hope the over fondness for 6'6 guys masquerading as PF doesn't haunt them down the stretch.

    Needed to get a better shot at the end.

    I really hope this means the Sox didn’t have $650K left.

    Another non-contact knee injury. At least Zach walked off under his own power.

    Uh huh, sure sure. Owners best get their asses in gear then.

    I am 100% on board with an ownership profit cap. I firmly believe owners should be limited to a percentage of yearly profits once their initial franchise purchase outlay has been recouped. The rest spent on the livelihoods of those that make the game run every day.

    Those are the figures I have in my head too. I'm open to a soft cap with heavy luxury taxes similar to the way the NBA does it as well. I don't see how any real financial parity and or competitive balance happens without both a cap and floor.

    I want to keep DJJ around, but he likely won't be here next year, and that salary will probably be needed in trade. The sooner Coach Donovan weens himself from his over reliance on Javonte the better IMO.

    A cap and floor would also help competitive balance and might help smaller market teams be more attractive to stars and other free agents. Not sure how that math would work though. It would also probably cut too deeply into the profits of lower payroll teams for the owners to agree to.

    Welcome to the MLB work stoppage

    Re-opening “negotiations” with this proposal really reveals the level to which ownership has had no intention of negotiating in good faith from the start. Locking players out was never necessary if they actually had intentions of hashing out anything fair. It was clear from the beginning that ownership wanted to use the threat of lost games as leverage to pressure players into capitulating into a regressive deal. Thursday’s proposal was laughable and the optics of them going through the motions of negotiating makes them look so much worse. It couldn’t be more clear which side is trying to do the other dirty.
