The over/under 30 dictum is useful for considering any given offer, but it shouldn't be a rule. Instead, a team should break down the contributing factors and determine the extent to which they apply more »

You seriously think that David Ortiz needs that kind of incentive? Based on what?

Chad, from a narrow tactical perspective your argument has merit. Looked at through a wider lens, though, negotiating now is the stronger position. First of all, compared to his peers, Papi has been a more »

"Bunch of innumerates with very short memories. Maybe just ingrates."Or Sox fans since about last August. Somebody tell these guys that there's a difference between tough and stupid.

"This is about him being an obese, whiny, juicing, crybaby turd..." Heal thyself. No one in Busch Stadium -- on the field or in the stands -- reached for the Kaopectate whenever Stephen Drew charged a more »

With the Sox, Manny distracted 274 HRs in 7.5 seasons, .290 or better every year, 1.000+ OPS times. Give a manager nine guys like that and he'll mop the field with faster runners and better gloves.

The only modification I would make is to change "Dan Shaughnessy going into a frenzy on Jim Rice" to Dan Shaughnessy going into a frenzy on anyone who ever played well for the Red Sox". But that's to more »

If Papi is a bad apple, curse the Red Sox with more like him.

"Teddy Ballgame didn't whine about his contract every damned year"
Good one. I'll be laughing all day.

There are fewer harder jobs in politics than being mayor of a big city. There are few more demanding and savvy electorates than in Boston. That a mayor of Boston could be as beloved as Menino speaks v more »

The Yankees spent the same money on Ellsbury/McCann that the Mariners spent on Cano. As good as Ellsbury is when healthy, Cano is one of the 4-5 best players in the American League and was the team le more »

Pedro speaks English better than most native speakers.

Since "until the existing deal was on the verge of running out" is wide open to interpretation, give Papi that one-year extension that he more than deserves. A no-brainer if there ever was one.
Posted 12/08/2013 02:02:33 EST
This is what I think. I don't see how the Yankees are better, especially when you throw in that Jeter, A-Rod (if he shows his face in the Bronx again) and Teixeira are another year older.

I'm struck by how badly the Yankees misread and mishandled their situation, at least so far. All of their moves this winter assumed that they would keep Cano. Resigning Cano and adding Ellsbury and Mc more »

The Republicans had already made the power grab. The Democrats finally knocked their hand away.

Spoken like a man's man. Way to go!

Seriously. By what law of physics can a 275-lb moving away from that particular thrown reverse field and catch it with another player cutting in front of him. pauldeba, it seems to that you recognize more »

Things are tough all over. No doubt the Panthers can point to any number of non-calls in that game that the zeebs should have made in their favor. If the shoe were on the other foot, no one here woul more »

Ellsbury at 36 will still be faster than David Ortiz at 25. Even off his peak, he'll still be one of the fastest players in baseball. Plus, his talents are not limited to speed: He can swing the bat a more »

Tell me about it. This reminded of the time Joe Garagiola said that a home run could be a rally killer. I could imagine Earl Weaver's response: "Of course I always liked those 3-run homers."
Posted 11/16/2013 11:42:40 EST
"Boras had an explanation as to why Ellsbury hit 32 home runs in 2011 but has only 13 over 880 at-bats in the two years since." The Red Sox *asked* Ellsbury to hit fewer HRs? Me, I always liked leadof more »

That's the shame of it: All three games have hinged on poor play by the losing team. The Cardinals aren't the '27 Yankees -- except for their pitching in game 2, they haven't been especially impressiv more »
