Here is a link that shows Schilling's actual tweet. Now let's discuss the actual tweet, and not something we have made up in our minds. Curt was a great pitcher, but he is also a big dope. http://www. more »

The Ten Commandments are less important to the creation of the constitution and laws than the Magna Carta.

Richard Thompson is great. Shoot out the Lights is one of my favorite albums.

Yes, we noticed Hanley is not hitting now. Just as Bradley was not hitting for 600 at bats. We are making an assumption, perhaps optimistic, that Hanley will hit better in the future. We are hoping he more »

The fan throwing the pizza slice game is a comedy classic. Don and Jerry at their best. I'll miss the way Don good naturedly brings out the humor of situations without losing sight of the game. Watchi more »

The Sox won in 2004 with Kevin Millar as their regular first basemen. Hanley may be able to achieve that level of defense.
Posted 08/25/2015 09:44:26 EDT
With Hanley now working out at first base it would seem this debate will quickly become irrelevant. Now the debate will be about the true talent level and value of Travis Shaw.

I will miss Orsillo's play by play and his good nature. I hope if he is going national he doesn't end up regretting the move. Sometimes the best place to work is right where you are. But of course I d more »

I was critical of the selective sample size used to criticize Jackie Bradley, Jr. Going back to part of last season and part of this season to come up with 76 at bats to "prove" he couldn't hit major more »

Using UZR on a game by game basis is statistically insignificant. This is a stat that needs a 3 season sample to get a somewhat accurate measure. It would be a fatal error to let Hanley man LF for 2 m more »

Jackie Bradley, Jr., offensive catalyst. Can you believe it?

I second Southpaw. A bit early for childish derogatory nick-names. I wasn't a Cherington basher but I was critical of some of his latest moves. Now I'm even more on Dombrowski's side, hoping he will s more »

I get "meaning" from instrumental music much the same way people get "meaning" from abstact art. It evokes emotional reactions in me just from the sound.

Ramirez 2006 to 2010: great hitter in his prime. Ramirez 2011 to 2015: oft-injured good hitter with flashes of past brilliance. Hanley is never going to repeat his past hitting success with any consis more »

The accepted sample size is 76 at bats, preferrably going back to part of a prior season. Because we all know that careers are a continuum, and not divided into discrete, totally unrelated seasons. Br more »
