I'd prefer Kapler or Cora. Hopefully It's not Ausmus.

Re: BOSTON RED SOX: THIS IS OUR ****ING CITY

I'm not seeing Kapler on any "likely Red Sox managers" lists. But seeing lots of Ron Gardenhire. And Cora.

Re: BOSTON RED SOX: THIS IS OUR ****ING CITY

Kind of an unimpressive 5-1 start. The pitching has been outstanding. 14 runs through 57 IP, and 6 of those runs came in 1 inning. But the offense is still kinda blah.

Last year, the offense was 22nd in wRC+. It feels as if they SHOULD be much better than that. Adding Martinez will help. Playing Devers all year instead of the crap they ran out at 3b last year should help. Mookie's gotta be better. I feel like this is a team that could finish top 5 in wRC+ and we wouldn't be shocked, but they just never put it together last year, and this year hasn't started out great either.

So I realize the Celts and Bruins are both in the playoffs, but you guys do realize the Sox are 13-2, right?

Re: BOSTON RED SOX: THIS IS OUR ****ING CITY

Team really does feel like a wagon. Gotta admit after the way they lost game 1 i had bad feelings but those were quickly put to rest. Bogaerts injury was disappointing with how good he started but offense hasnt missed a beat without him.

I know it might be fools gold but im really digging a motivated Hanley.

I’m still chalking it up to “its freaking April” but a season like 2016 would be huge.

Just think, they only have to win 21 of the next 23 to have the best 40 game start in the modern era.

I know it's early but 6.5 up on the Yankees is awesome. Some much needed margin for error.

Early or not, this is huge. Chances that the Yankees are 6 games better than the Sox the rest of the way is slim.

What an incredible heater. In case you missed it, we hit 0 grand slams last season. We've hit 5 this month all by different batters. Pitching has been great, hitting has been great, coaching has been great. Let's go.

The lead lasted less than three weeks.

Re: BOSTON RED SOX: THIS IS OUR ****ING CITY

LOL at almost any record (except maybe the '84 Tigers), being uncatchable at this point in the season.

'78 Sox had a 9.5 game lead on NY at the end of June, and look where that ended up.

And then there's the '64 (?) Phillies who blew a 6 game lead with 10 to play.

Johnny Gomes needs to be brought out back and put down. Just ruins every game he's in the booth for.
