    Our offense was terrible last year and Ben addressed it by signing the two best hitters in the free agent market. Add in the emergence of Mookie and the maturation of Bogey, and the return to health o more »

    Yesterday's opener was the perfect ending to the spring training thread. Not only did the offense explode, but Clay pitched like an ace and the defense backed him up beautifully, especially that secon more »

    Looks like I need to augment some of my projections. I appears Pedey is on pace for 324 homers! I did say that I thought Hanley would hit more homers on the road than at Fenway and that bomb he hit to more »

    Want the games to move along more quickly? Simply have the umpires call the strike zone that the baseball rule book dictates. The current MLB strike zone is barely larger than the catcher's mitt. more »

    The weak link I see in that pen lineup is Workman. Haven't seen him look good all spring. I really like Vavaro and Ogando, great pick-ups.
