Or fuck the starting pitching of the Sox.

I look forward to the deep analysis from Kid explaining how "Joey" screwed this game up, too.

Sox don't have starters, they have openers.

We knew we didn;t have a BP, but what started as a supposed strength and arguably one of the best rotations in baseball, Sale, Price, Porcello, Evo, Eddie, has turned into a guessing game of who's pitching today.

Sale, Price and a tub of ice?

2nd guess: Joey could have kept JD out of the field, but that fucking sun apparently was Pinella brutal and led to the 4 runs.

He could have played him in left and let Mookie field the sun field.

In a midnight purge Sox fire Dombrowski.

Thank God.

I do not want this guy anywhere near restructuring the next iteration of the Sox.

Just remains to be seen how big a haul we get for Betts.

I was surprised he was fired, even as I was aghast at some of his decisions.

I have to think there was more going on than meets the eye.

Or, at least, I hope so!

What baseball books of fiction have you really enjoyed? Could be when you were a kid. Could be recent.

What such books did you dislike a lot?!

I have attempted to impose a ban on the poster known as HamiltonIII.

As we all know, sometimes people can work around the bans because I cannot broadly ban many a given IP address without impacting others among you. I have attempted to address that, as well, but we will see whether that effort is successful.

If you see a new post from somebody that you are pretty sure is him, flag it and I will take a look as soon as I can.

Regretfully,

Josh


I'm not in favor of banning. But I'm not in charge around here I just post.

Hammy however I will not defend at any time anywhere.

This team is going to age me.

Helluva win for the Ys.


The Sox overall stats are not all that bad. They could easily have a dozen or more wins with the stats they have. Just a weird bad season for them.
