In response to devildavid's comment: Hfx, I can only guess as to why you detest It's a Wonderful Life. Maybe you have the same corny/sappy criticism of it, and there are elements of that. But I think more »

In response to mfymfy's comment: The Cubs rotation has five guys with ERAs under 3.25 (four under 3.0). The real beast there is Arrieta, not Lester. C'mon now. Arrieta had a very good season, Lester more »

I wish Lester well, I really do. And I think going to the Cubs was one of the least painful outcomes for the Sox. I don't think we even play the Cubs in the regular season the next few years.

Sabathia's original contract, which ran from 2009-2015, wouldn't have been so bad, but the contract had an opt-out after 3 years, and the Yanks ended up adding on another 2 years. Those opt-outs have more »

In response to S5's comment: One reasn we tend to underestimate the value of good defense because the statistics of an error don't include the ramifications of that error. As much as it pains me to s more »

In response to moonslav59's comment: I thought the same exact thing, and maybe the new strike zone is why they signed HanRam and made moves to get lowball pitchers. Let's hope they don't now switch to more »

Defense is important. Pitching is important. Hitting is important. They're all important. Everyone is enamored with the Royals defense, but if their hitters didn't engineer a huge comeback against more »

I think dealing Nava would be a mistake. Ramirez, Castillo, Victorino, Betts - lots of good potential, but also 2 guys with no experience and 2 guys with injury histories.

With regard to Shields's postseason performances, I'm wondering how much of it was fatigue. In 2011 and 2014 he pitched a lot of innings.

Some time ago I think we discussed a limit of starting 2 threads in a day. We need to clearly state it as a rule and if someone fails to follow it they get a time out.
