    I vote for "C - Bill is complete fool and the biggest self-serving mor0n out there...." And another personal attack on the Papi/Yaz thread. Totally unwarranted. Or this interaction, where Bill did not more »

    What recent deals were made for 2-month rentals for "Ace" caliber starting pitchers? In 2008, CC Sabathia went to the Brewers for Matt LaPorta, Michael Brantley, Zach Jackson and Rob Bryson. Brantley more »

    I guess I just haven't seen a lot of "baiting" from Bill lately, and what I've seen has been mild and ignorable. Like I said, the Moveon.org comment was entirely inoffensive. OTOH, I have seen a lot o more »

    Look, a lot of Bill's threads and comments are vacuous and repetitive and tedious (occasionally he has a good one liner or a baseball insight). But everyone piling on him is not helping. Some people a more »

    In response to BogieAt12oclock's comment: It'll be the highlight of the 2014 season. Getting rid of Peavy was a good start. All that's left is Gomes, Lester, Carp, Ross, Uehara, Mujica, and Breslow. L more »

    What's not to understand? Lester said he won't negotiate during the season and the team has agreed to respect that. The End. Now the team has to assess whether or not they can sign him in October. If more »
