    FWL is right; prices falling on Stub Hub.

    They are taking this “lack of a LOOGY” issue rather seriously. LA does have left-handed hitters they can run out there in the late innings or to sub for righties to match up with the Sox’ RHPs.

    Pomeranz in Workman out

    Now I have concernz.

    Then again, the only time we saw Workman in the last series was game 1, when Sale only went 4 innings. There’s a decent chance we never see Pomeranz or maybe just for one batter.

    Was a bit surprised at this move also but agree it makes some sense.

    Put him in for one lefty hitter when there’s a base open and if he walks the guy, no biggie?

    He’s the last guy on the roster. You people are overthinking this.

    Probably makes sense to counter Muncy and Bellinger.

    Leon and Nunez in tonight.  So not even in a national league park and they have the equivalent of 2 pitchers hitting!

    Sounds like Bill is doing the voice over for Fox’s opening whatever prior to the game tonight.

    Jeezy Effing Cripes !!!!   (as Dale would say)

    JAMES TAYLOR?!?

    I thought The Dentist had moved on.

    Who’s throwing out the first pitch? Barnicle?

    I’m in a bad mood before a pitch has been thrown.

    If I wanted nasal, fake-fan, emotionless singing I wouldn’t have booed him the last time the Sox brass trotted out that dead horse.

    This is simply so Wednesday’s NAMES column can be all about the Taylor-Sox connection.

    Pox on all of them. And Carly Simon, too, for good measure.

    For all Simple Ben knows, his original thought might be correct, depending on where the outsider receiver is lined up either 72 or 79 could be the Tackle Eligible player.

    Broncos backup QB and nephew of Jim Kelly arrested for criminal trespass, sounds like the standard “I got shitfaced and went into the wrong house” variety.  At least there’s an organizational standard with regard to drunkeness.

    Giants trade the wrong Eli to the Saints. Eli Apple for a 2019 4th and a 2010 7th.

    Cool! He was clearly psyched for them in the PC the other day.

    Little Jerry wrote another book. And while the first instinct is God no, never, I read “12” and “Big Game” and am now reading O’Connor’s Belichick book (which is surprisingly good), and saw that Thornton would be getting into Spygate and Deflategate. I thought maybe I could stomach it as a hate read.

    But just looking at the Kindle preview, I don’t think I can take it. He’s so fucking terrible:

    In sociological terms, the New England Patriots are that high school A/ V squad nerd who couldn’t get girls to talk to him and was on the receiving end of regular swirlies in the boys’ room. But by the 15th class reunion, he’d become the successful dot-com billionaire the valedictorian was begging for a job and the girl voted Most Popular wanted to dump her husband for. The zero who became the hero.

    He’s like Simmons but an even worse writer and less funny (in that Simmons isn’t funny at all, and Jerry’s below that). Every trite analogy, every pretentious fan take, every obvious conventional wisdom, Jerry will embrace it.

    Because like any good all-powerful ruler, Bill Parcells understood the importance of leaving behind a clear line of succession for after you’re gone. Game of Thrones would never even have happened if Robert Baratheon had simply stopped tomcatting around making babies everywhere while Queen Cersei was making babies of her own with her brother. Parcells had his heir to the throne: Bill Belichick.

    The nerd loser references are everywhere in the preview, validating the dork celibate lifestyle we already projected for Thornton:

    Personally, I wanted the new hope of my football team to ride in on horseback in a kilt with his face painted blue screaming about making our enemies pay for their crimes. What I got was the treasurer of the French Club saying we’ve got to start planning the car wash if we’re ever going to pay for that trip to the museum. With everything but the “I really mean it, guys! This is serious!!!”

    How he ever even touched a boob, let alone had children, is a mystery for the ages.

    Always supports the other teams in the area, has great relationships with the coaches.  He’s everything you want in a coach/face of a franchise.

    Good luck charm Yaz for the first pitch. He also threw out the first pitch for Game 1 in 2004, 2007, 2013.
