  1. Cease is like 2 years for 20M or so. And a team will get his ages 28-29 seasons. I don’t think this is the comp you think it is.
  2. If Getz wants to create a novel way to pitch 1400+ innings then be my guest. Having Eder up for 100 of them is fine. But you can’t have 14 guys throw 100 IP. Sign Bauer and let him and Cease log more. The rest by committee. I’d actually be interested in that.
  3. I have almost no interest in baseball anymore. Like zero. This playoffs all I’ve seen is Bryce Harper talking about getting chills playing for Phillies fans. That was cool and really honest. What could have been. Haven’t watched any games though at all this year. Did TLR kill it for me? I don’t even know. All I know is I don’t care. Colson is exciting. That seems to be my only interest point. Maybe just wash the decks and start over with him and Robert? Again, I’m probably just going to check in passively going forward. Really weird considering my history but I have no regrets tuning it all out. It just happened somehow.
  4. If Carolina is really the worst and we get the #1 pick, I love the idea of trading it down a few slots to whoever Poles thinks will have the worst record NEXT year. The opportunity to rinse and repeat for as many years as we can sounds tasty. Keep stacking the trenches. It’ll pay off
  5. If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the decades it’s to trade durable starting pitchers for second basemen
  6. We have 3 players. Robert, Colson and Cease. did I miss anybody?
  7. If you know you know. If you don’t know, then enjoy this giant middle finger from Trevor Bauer and all things good in the world. Hell yea. So sorry that happened to him.
  8. Lol team speed. We had like 2 good players and he was one of them 🤷
  9. Still think it should be Corlas. Maybe they’re having issues with agreeing on a pronunciation? He thinks he’s compromising saying “ok fine call me cor-LAHSS” and Getz is like “na dude; it’s CORE-liss.” Actually applaud the new GM here if that’s the case
  10. Probably a couple years from now.
  11. Can’t stop laughing at how inappropriate and forced this is. I love it more ever time I read it man thanks 😂
  12. Colson Montgomery made an interesting comment something like “I’m up there every time to wear down that pitcher and be a super hard out.” Im sure I messed that up a bit but the point is he’s like the only Sox player I’ve ever heard actually talk about “playing the game” while in the box. If I ran the Sox that would be the main thing I preached across all levels. That would be the Sox way: “we are the toughest outs you’ll ever face”. Not sure why only Colson has that mindset. He’s also the #2 prospect in baseball so I dunno.
  13. Thought I’d share this: took my kid to his first baseball game tonight in Myrtle beach. Caught Pedro Ramirez 1st home run, frickin crazy. Sox notes: Jacob G looked dumb on a strikeout but was clearly one of the better players there. Looks like a shortstop, almost made up for a bobble on a slick play but didn’t get the call. Looks really young, not crazy about the stance but he belonged for sure. I’m just an idiot fan so salt to taste. Nshida looks like a kid that doesn’t belong IMO. He could barely get the ball to the cut off man and his contact was super weak. Looked away for a second though and he was cruising around the bases for a triple. Not sure how that happened didn’t see the hit but sure didn’t seem like he has the power. Again, idiot fan. Special night for me and the fam.
  14. 100% IMO. He s%*# his pants game 3 against the A’s, there’s no debating that. I think the whole FO also s%*# their pants that game, but even if you put it all on Ricky, I wish he was given a chance to learn and grow from it. The team seemed to respect the hell out of him. They were all forming the new brand together. From the moment he was fired to where we are now…I don’t know if it could have gone worse.
  15. The real question is how many pages the Ohtani thread will be this offseason.
  16. Hope he gets to 10 bWAR over his Sox career at this point. What a miss. 🤷
  17. Reading this makes me feel like if you could go back in time to 2017 and lay out all the ways this rebuild could go, this is the absolute nightmare path I’d give almost no odds of happening.
  18. I’ve never seen a 30 grade anything. What’s a good comp? Was Nick Madrigal 30 grade power? is Grandal a 30 grade runner?
  19. Yea! Just googled that. How perfect
