i’m glad I didn’t jump off the bandwagon after the first three losses by the SOX.

Interesting that Stacey Abrams tweeted that she was disappointed with this and that they should stay and fight.

"Disappointed @MLB will move the All-Star Game, but proud of their stance on voting rights. GA GOP traded economic opportunity for suppression," Abrams wrote on Twitter. "On behalf of PoC targeted by #SB202 to lose votes + now wages, I urge events & productions to come & speak out or stay & fight. #gapol"

it was just a matter of time before sports got "more" politicized

boycotts/embargoes and posturing probably won't do much or be as effective as negotiating directly with decision makers

the response is just as silly, calling out the double standard of "doing business with china" in light of their horrific human rights abuses

in the end, it just makes it difficult for the little guy/fans/consumers

prediction: sports/olympics are going to continue to suffer

because poor problem solving skills?

I agree that they will score runs, but there is no early season starting pitchers probably not until July which will put them in a major hole. I’m still optimistic and are saying 3rd.

Not so sure about Chaim Bloom cause he’s a stats and computer formula guy and has already gutted the outfield. I prefer a gut feeling over stats and numbers only myself.
 

I still don't understand why they traded Benintendi so quickly. Maybe he just wanted out. You could see why the Sox were willing to move on from JBJ though: he didn't hit consistently enough. He's an awesome fielder, I gotta say. 

Apparently the Dodgers fan group Pantone 294 were sincere when they rented out a billboard near Fenway to thank the Sox for trading Mookie to LA but hey it still burns.

From what I can tell this season won't be very memorable for the Olde Towne Team. Sean McAdam, formerly of the Providence Journal and now at Bostonsportsjournal.com , predicts the Sox will finish in 4th place in the AL East. His thumbnail summary:  


"4. Red Sox. At the very least, they’ll be more competitive and entertaining. They’ll score plenty of runs, per usual, but the pitching is very much a question mark."

That's been their MO for God knows how long...

    It does not. 


    Giants start the season with interleague play. Game time somewhere around midnight. 

    What's surprising about the tickets at Wrigley is they seem to be reasonably priced, at least compared to similar seats at Coors or SF (I literally have no idea what they call New Candlestick these days. PacBell? 3Com?)

    Edit: Over the course of 20 years or so, it's been
    PacBell Park
    SBC Park
    AT&T Park

    So we're going to just have to haunt the site as June 11 gets closer... maybe it'll come together! Probably won't be able to get bleachers though.

    You can apparently still get single game tickets to the Saturday Pirates game, now showing $49 for the nosebleeds.

    I just bought a pair of Twins tix for April 13th. I'm elated, almost giddy, to have this step towards a recognizable normalcy—going to a ball game.  Twins are limiting attendance to about 10K fans in a 40K park.  But hey, it's live ML baseball, (and I am vaxxed!)
     
    Edit: Upper deck, third row, behind home plate.  $20 seats, $26 per, after fees.
