    Pretty sure he collects on that until around 2030.

    You forgot Reggie Jackson. Now there's somebody everybody thinks is a great player because he hit home runs in the clutch. Whiffed more than anybody in his era, couldn't field for shit, and everybody in the clubhouse hated him. But you guys are probably going to say he was a great hitter or something.
    You think bunting and stealing bases lead to more runs?

    People strike out at higher rates today than ever before. Pitchers are also throwing way harder and much better at mixing up pitches. Hitters finally went away from the idiotic old time baseball practice of “swing down” and have started using slight upper cut swings. The league is more skilled than ever before.
    All-stars from the 80s would be completely overwhelmed by today’s game.

    Doesn’t mean it is more fun to watch though.

    Speaking of Pedroia, Chavis is paying really well lately, and in particular tonight. So there's that.

    What in the actual fuck? Until the 9th inning apparently. 5-2 lead turned into a 5-7 deficit.

    Yeah I was half-watching, looked up and saw it was tied and turned it off. That's enough baseball for tonight.

    Maybe a prized spot for his plaque next to Ted Williams’ frozen head, yet still not top billing behind the bar?
    I could see him in security somehow. He has a certain attitude.

    Fell asleep after the Sox tacked on those last two thinking well, that’s over.

    Happily surprised this morning to see the box score. Tribe needed that bad.

    How about those Twins?

    MN hasn't fielded a team this fun to watch since the early 2000s, maybe ever.

    Now that they won’t lose a draft pick, who’s gonna grab Keuchel and Kimbrel next week?

    Dave Dombrowski to the white courtesy phone, paging Dave Dombrowski.

    I think I'd take Kimbrel back, as much as he scared me in the second half of last season. Am I crazy? I feel like he was worn down and lacked confidence in his stuff, maybe the rest did him good? I dunno.

    He struck me as worn out down the stretch last year, too. Maybe he's still good after the rest, or maybe his arm is hanging on by a thread. No way to know for sure until he's throwing in games.

    DK, though: firm pass. I don't need to see what a pitcher with his stuff will do in Fenway without the help of the fairy dust/extra coaching/spitballs/sign-stealing in Houston. I feel like he's a 4.75 ERA waiting to happen in that scenario.

    Well that was a fun one! I’ll take a series in Fenway any day.

    ROLL TRIBE.

    I am good either way. House money makes it easier, and easier on the ol ticker. I think that goofy stance just really sets me off, I dunno.

    I’d take a chance on Kimbrel for the dodgers. That abomination of a bullpen needs all the help it can get.

    like a top to bottom grinding line up that can put together a 4 run ninth against a good closer?

    Pederson and Muncy homered in succession to begin the ninth and Justin Turner doubled. Bellinger’s RBI double brought the Dodgers within a run before Corey Seager was intentionally walked and Matt Beaty reached on an infield single, as Amed Rosario missed touching second base on the grounder. Verdugo ended it with the fly to Carlos Gomez..
    Boys can hit.
    FTW

    Yeah that’ll help. I dozed off between the top and bottom of the ninth and woke up with Turner on second. Not a bad finish at all. It’s a great lineup top to bottom and the fresh prince looks like he could have a future. Already thrown out two runners in his first 2 games.
