    Thank you! That's the spirit!

    Who knows what can happen in a very short season?

    Have some faith people!

    Betts and price are gone. Sale is a wreck. Nathan’s UCL makes a violin string look strong. Bradley and Martinez have their bags packed ready to bolt at first chance.

    When you are saying Weber, hall, Perez and Johnson in the same sentence as starter, then you know your team is circling the tidy bowl.

    Hang.’em Chaim, this is probably going to be your one and only chance blow up the dombrowski mess and rebuild the right way.
    Then why hasn't JD opted out yet? Maybe because your premise is bad?

    Spend wisely, draft well, sign well.

    See you in '21.
    If Bloom can figure out how to start developing pitching, he should have a lifetime job here.

    Reasons Boston must get their 3 power LHPs--Rodriguez, Hernandez, Taylor--in sync quickly:1. Current 5 man rotation was 19-20, 5.54 ERA in '19; 2.w/short rotation needs Taylor/Hernandez, 109 K/67.2 IP; 3.after 3 w/Orioles, 22 G to Aug. 19 w/Mets, Yanks, Rays, Jays, Phils.

    Why hasn't the organization gone out and outbid for the best pitching scouting and developing people in the business?

    It can't cost more than a low or mid level FA.
