    But isn't a big part of the story with David Robinson that he was too tall to be a serving officer? And that the Navy decided that the best way to leverage his commitment was to have him play?

    No outfield walls is unrealistic. Requiring ballparks to have, for example, 450 or 500 ft deep walls from foul pole to foul pole is somewhat more realistic. That said, nearly every ball park in MLB...

    Live in the real world. 60 second pitching changes are completely unrealistic. And so is asking new pitchers to instantly start pitching off of a mound without giving them a few throws to get...

    The thing with football is that since the game is governed by a timer, games tend to be about the same length of time (not counting the rare playoff OT game that could go on and on). Baseball, OTOH,...

    Different mound. And it's not about warming up. It's about checking out the footing on the actual mound, not the bullpen mound.

    A couple of unrelated points here.

    1. I don't know this for a fact, but I have a suspicion that the networks (particularly the national ones) 30-40 years ago weren't trying to shoe-horn in as many...

    It's not really the same thing. An outfielder should already know the wall caroms when he enters the game. They're something that's not really going to change from minute to minute. OTOH, pitchers...

    Frankly, commercials are another thing that lengthen games. In the situation you describe above, the network (local or national) could go to commercial the instant the manager calls for a pitching...

    This is just dreaming. Do you think that relievers are going to sprint in from the bullpen and start pitching with no warm ups, cuz that's just about what it'd have to be, since most parks' bullpens...

    Agreed. MJ quit playing basketball for a short time to play Baseball, so he was really only focusing on one sport at a time.

    OTOH, Bo Jackson was a true 2 sport player, who played one sport...

    Corky, I don't know if Ortiz is HOF worthy or not, as I haven't looked at his career numbers lately. But part of me wants to think that he should be, in large part because of his stellar post...

    Why shouldn't the owners use this to their advantage to convince the Powers-That-Be to get a new stadium deal in place?

    I also agree that HFA is important. It's great for the Sox to be able to play any game 7 at home, if necessary. And 100 wins would be great and an 8-3 finish definitely doesn't seem beyond this...

    Honestly, BS4Life, I think that that kind of money (5/75) is wasted on a speed CF-er with only moderate to mild power who isn't going to get any faster or hit for more power on the wrong side of 30...

    Kinda seems like a given that the Sox would take that option for next season with Lester. Whether they're willing to pay him anything close to the market rate after next season may be a different...

    I don't blame the Dodgers for being in a Win Now Mode. They're trying to rebuild their brand after all those bad years under the previous ownership. And nothing will get the fannies back in the...

    Maybe the Sox wanted XB to get his first start(s) on the road.

    I do agree that if XB's going to ride the bench, it seems odd that they really bothered to call him up for this road trip. Still, I...

    The problem with Buchholz isn't a lack of consistency. It's a lack of staying on the mound.

    The key phrase above is "when he is healthy". He just hasn't been healthy enough in recent years. And...

    I wouldn't mind seeing the Sox trade Buchholz, though I tend to think that he needs to come back and pitch for the remainder of the season to rebuild his value some. My reasoning for preferring to...

    Soxtober, yes, it'd probably be safer defensively to wait until Holt can be called up to play 2B. However, I think that there's a flaw in that thinking. All the griping about Holt's lack of offense...

    And from what little I read, it sounds like WMB handled playing 2B in the final game of the SF series for a couple of innings well enough. Makes me wonder if the Sox might give Pedrioa a day or 2...
