    Brady should just tell them he got the OK from David Ortiz.

  • Forum Post: HOF Veterans Ballot...do any of these deserve to go in?

    When you compare Luis Tiant's stats with Don Drysdale's and Catfish Hunters, then yes, he definitely deserves to go in.

  • Forum Post: Hanley Ramirez Signing - Is this worse than Crawford?

    Posted 11/24/2014 07:31:35 EST

    I don't like the Hanley signing but am willing to give it a chance. Obviously, this gives the Sox trade chips in the outfield so let's see what happens. I like the Sandoval signing, but I still have t more »

    Geez. I thought I saw some stupid threads on the Red Sox board. This one has to top all of them. The Patriots scored 34 points against the No. 1 defense in the NFL. 439 yards and 34 points against a d more »

  • Forum Post: Daniel Nava / Brock Holt

    Posted 11/06/2014 11:23:52 EST

    Keep Brock Holt as a super utility guy. He can play everywhere and that opens up a lot of flexibility.

    Nava was always a good story but he's easily replacable IMHO.

    Good for Tito. I like Farrell, but Francona remains my favorite Sox manager of all-time (in my lifetime who I remember). Ralph Houk is No. 2. I'm not sure who No.3, maybe Eddie Kasko. Don't remember D more »

    I didn't see anything, I thought I'd start a thread. He was one of the greats. The personalities in Cream were probably too volatile to last long, but for that short period, they created a lot of grea more »

    Posted 09/25/2014 03:35:28 EDT

    The problem with this thread is pumpsie's criteria for overperforming. Saying someone who is 30 points over his career OPS is overperforming has to be one of the more ridiculous and arbitrary use of s more »
