    McKnight to do pregame and postgame radio

    Heard Rongey on the Score just a week or so again. He used to get so frustrated with callers it was pretty funny. One of his replies to a guy that he was getting ready to hang up on was a classic - “ that’s a dumb idea and you’re stupid”.

    Old: Mega Hendriks Speculation Thread

    I’ve only seen Hendricks pitch twice and both times it was against the Sox in the playoffs. I remember thinking while watching him pitch that there was all this hoopla about the guy and he didn’t look overwhelming at all to me. There’s some pitchers that have that little something that makes them virtually unhittable. I didn’t see it with him. Colome on the other hand has that little cutter that hitters struggle with. I’d rather they get another solid starter as they have a lot of bullpen guys already many that have the stuff and mentality to close.

    Engel agrees to deal

    I like how Engel plays. He’s a good athlete and could be a late bloomer which is a lot better that that fucking idiot Ricky ran out to rf last year.

    Badler: Sox expected to sign Yoelki Cespedes

    How about just have him play in an independent league in the states for a year?

    Since 1990 who is the Sox 2nd best player?

    Belle was good that year but wasn’t that great until the Sox were out of it. Most of his production came in the second half though I might be wrong

    Omar Vizquel facing domestic violence accusations

    I think I remember he’s was the manager who used to sit Rutherford against lefties the whole year.

    Sox acquire Lance Lynn for Dane Dunning and Avery Weems

    How about when the eastern division teams play the Sox next year and they have to face gio, dk and LL the first three game and they think they get a break the next game because everyone’s 4th starter is usually pretty weak and we send a guy out throwing 100 mph with two other really good pitches? good luck to them.

    And the Yankees don’t have much starting pitching

    Sox acquire Lance Lynn for Dane Dunning and Avery Weems

    I’m a fan of dunning but the Sox needed a strong third starter without a doubt. Lynn is the guy. The Sox have plenty of young guys coming to fill in holes and if they don’t you go get a guy like Lynn. im always amazed when fans go crazy about losing one of their own players. We just got a really good pitcher who is an ace for most teams.

    Kyle Schwarber signs with Nationals: 1 year 10mil

    Also if there is two out and thome is up against a lefty there is no benefit to having mashers up right after him. It was thome or nothing

    Thome wasn’t facing a lefty in the blackout game

    As much as I liked Jim thome I can remember most of the time when he came up to bat in the later innings in a key situation that the other team brought in their lefty and it was usually a strikeout. It would be worse than thome with schwarber. He’s brutal.

    And now Wheeler on the market

    I like the way dunning works the ball up and down and in and out. Not many guys can do that. I wouldn’t trade him. Just pick up the majority of wheelers K and that’s it. They should t be rewarded for being idiots
