    LOL, I was just teasing about how the shift in power occurred this time last century.

    From where I stand, it is completely the other way around.

    The more Jacko goes on about how great the Yankees are, the better Red Sox fans should feel.

    We got this in the bag.

    I have no idea what you are talking about. Jacko nailed it on the head before last season began.................................oh wait.

    Jacko refers to our bullpen as an "abject dumpster fire". It wasn't enough to just call it a "dumpster fire", he had to ramp it up even further with the "abject" adjective.

    He keeps harping on our least strong area. It's his only hope.

    Bull pen sucks.

    Sale is toast.

    Kimbrel was our MVP- we'll be crap without him.

    Eovaldi will be as crappy as when he was a Yankee.

    Betts & JD could never come near their 2018 numbers again.

    No Sox player, even the pre-prime players can get better.

    And no one from the Sox farm system is capable of playing Division 3 high school baseball, let alone in the AL East...

    So the AL East has already been clinched? Guess I canít blame DD for not wasting money on the bullpen chasing an unwinnable division...

    He doesn’t want anyone to confuse it with a partial dumpster fire. Those can be useful to hobos sometimes...

    I have to agree.

    WAR is the subject of far more bad puns (The “what is it good for?” line got old years ago.) and baseless attacks than BA and ERA and RBIs old-style baseball card stats. Don’t get me wrong; those stats do get attacked. Just typically with logic about their flaws as opposed to complaints about their existence.

    Although I was listening to MLB Radio the other day, and a fan called up to bash Harper with “he’s only hit 40 HRsce and only got 100 RBIs once” and the host shot back with “when you get your head out of 1988.” But then sports radio hosts are not always known for their tolerance...
