  1. Damn... can’t say I’m surprised, though. Maybe he throws his hat into the managerial search ring?
  2. Sounds like it was inevitable. Also sounds like an inevitable (massive) suspension is coming soon.
  3. At this point, I’d be a-ok with rolling the dice with Varitek. Might as well try to wash the hands clean. (Still open to bringing back Cora in 2022 if things don’t work out, though.)
  4. It’s coming. It’s bad. https://www.bostonherald.com/2020/01/13/mlb-alex-cora-developed-the-astros-sign-stealing-scheme-a-j-hinch-suspended-1-year/
  5. Probably the best movie I've seen in a few years. The director's Golden Globes acceptance speech was awesome: "Once you overcome the one-inch tall barrier of subtitles, you will be introduced to so many more amazing films."
  6. Fingers crossed that the Yankees get implicated in this shit, too.
  7. Well, there goes any sense of moral superiority over the Astros...

    I was waited two fucking years for Carson Smith to finally contribute to the Red Sox, and this is what I get? Huh. Also, lulz @ all the Astros fans (and even Houston sports talk radio) calling Jomboy a “conspiracy theorist” and saying he doctored all these videos like they’re the Zapruder film.

    ... thus, declining to comment this time around. Hats off to Evan Dreillich for writing this story. He’s been one helluva writer over the past several years.

    @HannahRKeyser: "The Astros declined to comment at this time." because that worked so well last time Boom, head shot.
  11. Yep, pretty much. They won't be able to get a king's ransom for him, but if they can get 2-3 young, team-controlled players or high-level prospects (especially pitchers), they'll sadly have to pull the trigger. Mookie won't get Trout money, but he'll likely get at least $300-350M a year from now. Can't necessarily ask for a bounty right now if a player is all but guaranteed to test the market after a season. Fucking sucks.
  12. Mazel tov! Seems like a good hire, he did a lot with a little in Tampa. First task: figure out the Mookie/JD/payroll conundrum. Good luck!
  13. So, we may have just seen Mookie’s last game with the Red Sox. This is just so fucking weird. Last year was nice though, right?
