    In case you weren't aware, this is a Red Sox board.

    We're allowed to be optimistic about our team.

    FTR, regression does not mean that if you flip a coin 100 times and you get 80 heads, that in the next 100 flips you will only get 20 heads to 'balance out' the 80 heads. It means that in the next 100 flips the number of heads that you get will be much closer to the expected number of 50.

    Kimmi - How many years do you think a player needs to play in order to establish a meaningful mean?

    Not that we were interested in a 3rd baseman, but one more option came off the table when Josh Donaldson agreed to arbitration today. One year $23 Million. We continue to sit and wait.

    For half of 2018.

    Asking the same old crew to return and increase their run total by 6-7% isn't realistic.

    Is it any more unrealistic than to think we'd decline by 11% in runs scored from 2016 to 2017?


    If you are going to gain 50 runs as a team, youre going to need to add something else.

    Scoring 50 more runs this year would still be 43 less than 2016.

    Yes, we lost Papi from the 2016 team, but we've added Beni, Devers and our young stars are reaching prime.

    Me too. He looked pretty good at the end of last year.

    It's also not unrealistic to expect a player who is approaching prime to get even better year by year. He could have a career year.

    True, he may have also already had his career year.

    Iím a big fan too.
    Fire Farrell - fucking check mark!
    Trade Pedroia
    Sign JD Martinez to play 1B/DH
    Sign Alex Cora for MGR - check plus!

    Devers is Ted Williams but with better wheels.

    I think we need to slow a little down here. Devers hasnít even played a full season.
    "It happens to everybody, man. He's had 60 at-bats. A couple of years ago, I had 60 at-bats, and I was hitting .170, and everyone was ready to kill me, too. And what happened? Laser show. So, relax."

    Maybe a half season or more with no Pedey and no ERod.

    No 38 games from Nunez, but no 32 games from Pablo, 90 games from Young, 37 games from Rutledge and probably less games from Leon.

    Yes, many games added onto the 58 Devers got last year, but what about this?

    More games by Vaz.

    Probably more games from Price.

    More games Carson Smith.
    More games from Steven Wright.
    More games from Brandon Workman.
    Hopefully many games from Thornburg.
    Possibly more games from Maddox & Velazquez.

    Yes, these guys won't help the offense, but they should help us win some more games.

    Donaldson was never an option for anyone but Toronto. Other teams were asking, and yet he stayed a Blue Jay.

    Ted Williams would be 99 years old. I would hope Devers had better wheels...
