  1. I was 7 when I went to my first game in 1962 against the Tigers (Boog Powell was in left field). I remember seeing that beautiful green field when we came up the ramp; that did it for me.
  2. It would help if we didn’t have a meddlesome owner who bid against himself for a player whose albatross of a contract will weigh this franchise down for years to come
  3. That way they could re-use all the home run balls the other teams hit; a good bit of change in all that cowhide.
  4. Although Davis went 0-for-8 with 5 K’s he also got the win, so he has that going for him; which is nice. https://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/BOS/BOS201205060.shtml

  6. Keeping something in the tank in case they went to extra innings.
  7. I saw Josh Hader pitch Monday night against the Cards; they weren't seeing the ball very well against him (4 K's in 1.1 innings). Maybe Scott could text him for some suggestions.
  8. So sorry to hear this; my sympathies to his family and friends. If I remember correctly, he broke a bleacher seat at Tiger Stadium on a home run; broke my heart to see him traded for Reggie.
  9. He would have languished in the minors for years, then been included in a 5-for-1 deal for Barry Zito.
  10. If the starting pitching doesn't improve on last year's results, and Chen's loss doesn't help things (not that he was a bull out there, but he was a competent lefty), the bullpen's going to get overtaxed and, not being as flexible as in the past, it's going to be harder to swap out pitchers when they wear down/lose effectiveness.
  11. My neighbors were distant relatives to Pappas and we were all bummed about the trade. Got over that pretty quickly.
  12. Not sure what he would have done with Harvey, but he wouldn't have burned up his closer pitching the 9th inning in a blowout.
  13. Look up "streak hitter" in the dictionary and you'll see a picture of Lee May. When he was cold, he was Kelvin, absolute zero, but when he was hot...
