Yeah, I noticed it last week.

I think his ranting and raving leading up to, during, and just after the live stream on Sirius was the final straw for the mods.

And the Jays have been SOOOOOO bad, he'd basically gone away to hide from this thread, anyway.  He tried to talk some smack, during the Yanks swoon, and then the Jays suddenly couldn't win, again.

Do we even still have Mods other than Jarmo? I thought he was the only person really policing anything, maybe I'm wrong.


Jays have been atrocious this year...


Our favorite 150 million dollar bench player played and lead off last night... made me sick lol

I am really curious about what happens when Hicks comes back.... I know Hal won't eat 70 million...but what the hell are they supposed to do...

At this rate... Frazier HAS to play left field every day....

At this rate... Frazier HAS to play left field every day....

I mean...they COULD, feasibly, DFA Holiday and use the DH as the "odd outfielder out" spot and rotate around. But Judge and Frazier are both not going anywhere.  Gardner is playing center VERY well, and is hitting better than you suspect Ellsbury will, AND has been in the midst of a power display recently.  So, even with Hicks coming back...none of the guys playing the OF should be sat, completely.  Their bats are too important.

So, you DFA Holiday (as much as I hate to do it), who hasn't been hitting great and can't actually play the field all that well.  Ellsbury becomes your backup outfielder/DH, in case of injury.

IDK, we'll see.  The thing is: They only have to really hold down the fort til September callups, when the rosters expand.  But you REALLY want Frazier on the post season roster....ditto Hicks.  So....it's gotta be Ellsbury or Holiday on the outside, looking in. Given the economics, I'm betting Holiday. But maybe they'll surprise me.

What I would LOVE for them to do is swap Ellsbury's contract for Verlanders in a waiver wire deal.  Let Verlander spell Monty (or Sevy) for awhile, since he may be on an innings limit.  Both those guys would likely clear waivers, since nobody wants to take those contracts on.  Straight contract swap and bob's your uncle.

Where do I sign for a Verlander swap.....

Holliday... there must be something lingering from that illness... he is behind on every pitch.

Despite the obvious upgrades we made ... I still give the edge in the division to the bad guys ...

Sale is such a difference maker.

Sale is such a difference maker.

A lot depends on Price.

If it really is a minor issue, and he's back in a couple weeks, so do I.

If it's something more major, and he misses significant time down the stretch, or comes on and off the DL over the last 60 games once or twice.....then I think the Yanks have the edge.

Sale is a difference maker, but he can only pitch once every 5 days.  The Sox were NOT GOOD until Price came back and started pitching well.

All this is assuming the Yanks offense continues to chug along like it has, and their bullpen is lights out.  Neither is a sure thing.  These young guys could regress, and fast. We just don't know.....

Pedroia to DL with knee something (swelling?).

Edit: To clear up why I can't tell.  The alert I got says "Pedroia to DL with knee adam".

Somehow, I don't think Dustin names his knees, nor do I think naming his knee adam would lead to a DL stint.

I'm assuming they mean edema.....and it's a typo. But I can't tell and haven't seen anyone else comment yet.

Sure they will, soon.

Eduardo Nunez was acquired because of his ability to play third base, but its second base where Nunez will need to get comfortable.

Dustin Pedroia, who has missed the last four games, was placed on the 10-day disabled list with left knee inflammation on Tuesday afternoon.

"Were hopeful hes back to us at the end of the 10-day stint," manager John Farrell said.

He met with a knee specialist in Boston today after feeling consistent fatigue and soreness over the last week or so. The determination was that the trouble was caused by a cartilage  issue, not a ligament issue, and some rest was necessary

He says he'll be back soon. Doesn't sound too serious.

Just FYI:

He said the same thing, via SM, shortly after they found the UCL tear/strain/whatever it really is, back in March-ish.  He was super optimistic he'd be back quickly.

It took him all of spring training, and most of the month of May (so about 12 weeks) to recover from it.  And about 7 weeks later, it's back again.

I know they're saying it's "less severe" than in spring training, but I wouldn't take his word for it or the Sox word for it (who, while saying it's less severe, also wouldn't rule out losing him for the season in the next breath), all things considered.

It's definitely not a complete tear...it doesn't look like he's going to opt for surgery...so that's better than originally expected.  BUT....lets see how long until they clear him to actually pitch.


Looks like you were right about Price. Nothing official but he's still experiencing general soreness and certainly won't be back as soon as they hoped. I should know better by now to never trust the Red Sox when it comes to injury news. Carson Smith was supposed to be back by June. Still waiting for him.

If you're waiting...don't. Live your life. That's your responsibility not mine. If it were not to happen you won't have missed a thing. If in fact it does you might get something that works for you.

Derek jeter led group to buy the Marlins. I wish him the best in this new endeavour. As for the Loria's goodbye and good riddance to bad trash. May MLB never let those scumbags back in the door.
