  1. Bummer is one of the hardest workers on the club. Good for him! I like the Sox paying younger guys for performance. It’s the wave of the future, rather than paying old guys for past performance.

    Okay, how about Starling Marte and Adam Jones? Both plus athletes at a key defensive position who throughout their careers have not walked much but hit for good averages with decent power.

    Most Memorable Sox Game You've Attended?

    I was at that game. Next outing v. Sox Nolan plunked Rubin and I think Grebeck. Cue video

    OF Prospects - Who will Rebound in 2020?

    What they're saying is that he's put on a lot of muscle and he's hitting with more power in BP. But that's just BP, so who knows?

    Early reports this spring look positive for Rutherford. That would be huge because no Sox left-handed hitters ever seem to develop.

    Thanks. Agree to disagree. I think he is going to have a long post-Sox career.

    In the next 2 years? Or in his career? Cuz if it's career, I'd take the over on that in a heartbeat, even if the bulk of it is going to be for another team.

    Do you actually write these or do you have a bot that auto fills your Abreu slams?

    Huge Blow for Indians: Clevinger Out

    Man, must have twisted his knee sprinting to his mistress’s house after the baby was born.

    Cool. I grew up in St. Joe. Not many Sox fans there, though.

    I will note that Bregman and Altuve both vehemently deny the buzzers, but everything else is a "no comment" or a "now is not the appropriate time to talk about that," which for me is tantamount to admitting it's all true.

    Also, his arm is barely playable in left. Your second baseman would have to have a cannon if you were playing Brantley out there. Helluva hitter, though.

    MLB cheating scandal

    Thanks for the Kevan Smith interview. He said two things that really stuck out to me: 1) Neither the Sox nor the Angels had video sign stealing, and 2) Even last year it seemed like the Astros inexplicably had guys, even with no obvious pitch-tipping or runners on base. It’s going to be interesting to see how this effects their numbers. They still have a lot of talent, but if every guy you face is, in essence, tipping their pitches, you’re going to do better. Also, not surprised Sox weren’t doing this. Hard to imagine losing that many games AND cheating.

    Hire AJ Hinch to replace Ricky?

    I vaguely remember the negotiations between the Sox and Hinch getting very ugly. I think there were recriminations against Hinch’s family. I don’t think there is any love lost there. So 1/1000 might even be kind.

    I don’t think the sign-stealing helped him hit all that much.
