    Evan Oberg's Frequent Flyer Miles

    He looks even worse in comparison to Vinik, who is the most beloved owner in sports this side of the Rooneys, and the Glazers… well they’re certainly not beloved and they make more bad decisions than good, but at least they’ll pony up the money to try and compete. Stu just sits on his ever-fattening wallet and complains.

    Seriously. That asshole conman is incapable of keeping his foul piehole shut. Even today at his press conference he said “We’ll see how attendance goes this year” and factor it into their decision-making. How about fuck off with that shit? How about you try actually marketing the team for once instead of trying to tank your own attendance numbers? POS. Hopefully the same MLB executive committee folks are starting to see through his con artistry and will come to realize he is a big part of the problem down here.

    Attendance is never going to be great in St. Pete and the corporate base that drives season ticket sales will always be a problem, but how many more people would go to games if Stu sold the team and stopped complaining and badmouthing everyone?

    Good riddance this sister team plan is over and done with. What a mockery that would have been

    What an absolutely insane deal for Franco after 70 MLB games. High risk high reward

    This is a feature, not a bug.

    Team (Stu) says “We can’t afford proven starting pitchers.”
    Team (Stu) says “We have to go with what we’ve got, which is prospects, rookies and other inexperienced players.”
    Team wins 100 of 162 regular season games.
    Team loses 3 of 4 playoff games for an unexpected and early winter vacation.
    Team (Stu) says “Look at those 100 wins. We just got unlucky. Nothing to see here. We believe in our process. We’re gonna stick with it. … Oh BTW, enjoy all of your favorite players while they’re here, because we can’t afford to keep them for more than 3-6 years. … Oh BTW, you fans suck and we’re leaving unless you build us a palace by Spring 2028.”

    You see where this is going?

    Simple equation to me, you add Morton and Snell into the starting rotation the team doesn’t have to score 7 runs every game. Quality, experienced starters are so important and especially in a short series, but we suddenly found ourselves in desperate need of it.

    On the bright side, team is about to relocate to Montreal

    I don't get why the first round is only best of 5.

    I rarely blame umps/refs, but that crew made some game- and series-changing calls up there in Boston. Very frustrating.

    Gritty to tie it at 5, but Lowe with an Ofer didn’t help. As Fly/Jon said, it was a repeat performance. Gotta credit the Sox bats. Solid.
