    Also we are on the hook for a portion of last year of Price's contract, $16M. Of course it has to count against our luxury tax. Otherwise we'd trade away bad contracts to get it off our books. Surprised we're discussing that...

    I imagine the fact that JBJ couldn’t hit water if he fell out of a boat back then also figured into it. It was also about that time the Sox moved Betts to the outfield, originally in center. So was it about “not losing out”? Or about finding a CF? Or maybe both?

    Sox wasted 72 million on Rusney Castillo when, for a few million less the year before, they could have signed Jose Abreu. A big mistake by Ben Cherrington and staff.

    And 1b has been kind of a shitshow for the Sox ever since trading AGon. Having Abreu there would have solved a big hole for the org.
    Must have been the wind.

    It's all water under the Tobin. This organization has made its share of mistakes, but 4 rings really takes the sting out of it...
    Championships since purchase by John Henry group: Red Sox 4 Yankees 1

    The Red Sox are 8-1 in their last 9 postseason games against the Yankees.

    Yep....Sox 4 Yankees 1
    Up 2-1 with 2 home games remaining for ACL Championship. I will always return to that spot and roll the dice.
