I have a weird feeling Boston may win it all this year.  They barely lost Friday night and now creaming the Astros  9  to  0.   Like other people ,  I  cannot  stand the Red Sox or Cora.  But they seem to have this desire to win it all. They were not even expected to compete this year.  If they win tonight they might sweep Houston in Boston  and  on to the world series.  I am WORRIED

"They have a desire to win"  when a team have wins that seem magical that doesn't mean they desire more than the other team, they just happen to be the hot team.  You can also say the Astros made the game closer than it should've been, I doubt the Sox expected it to end 9-5.  The Astros won't be rolling over.

The Astros better watch out or they'll be leaving Boston and going to the golf course... The lucky sox are hitting on all cylinders and I think the Astros better win two out of three in Boston...

    The Red Soc spend money almost on a par with the Yankees. It is not just luck that often gets them far in the postseason. It is notable theyve done it  with different front offices.  Maybe it tellls us that there are baseball executives "out there" who can win in the postseason.

What I'd like to know is, what does Brian Cashman have over Hal that he won't finally fire him, and move on? The Yankees organization has remained stagnant or been back peddling since 2017, when it came closest to wining an AL championship since 2009 when they last won it all.

I dislike Boston, but for a number of years now, they seem to be doing a better job building a team than the Yankees. Yes, they had those last place finishes, but they became good again astonishingly fast.


They seem to spend money better and more wisely, and don't box thmselves into the exceeding-the-CBT-corner. Examples for this year: signing FA's Kiki Hernandoz and Hunter Renfro for about $9m. Both players have had excellent seasons. While both had down years in '20, the Red Sox, unlike the Yankees, seem to have a way to bring out the best in a player.


They also make better trades; they get Schwarber, who has hit well for them, while we get the "K" king, Gallo. The Yankees are doing some things wrong, and that mainly lays at the feet of Cashman.

Perhaps the Red Sox are doing something "wrong"... it wouldn't be the 1st time their manager was looking to gain an edge. I'm actually enjoying watching them mash against the cheating Astros!

    Evryone makes mistakes. Cashman never learns. The guy complained incessantly about the A Rod contract and then a worse deal with Gerrit Cole. Cashman acted surprised when A Rod got outed for cheating. A decade later he is surprised again to find that his investment is not so good without outside help. As a result, the Yankees will be overpaying Cole about $18 M per season for the next 7 years. 


    The money would not matter if Hal did not care about payroll. Hal does. The reason the Yankees settled for Gallo rather than obtain Schwarber is because the Red Sox had room left under the salary cap. Cashman used every dollar and at the deadline could only get players other teams were willing to pay to jettison in return for prospects. 


   I am sure the Yankees will sign some big free agent this offseason if ticket sales are slow. They will get the press machine going and raise expectations. And '22 I am sure the '22 season will end early in October.

All during the regular season the Red Sox were streaky.  Right now they are clearly on a hot streak.  But not so long ago when the Yankees took 6 straight from them to move into the top WC spot the season was a complete loss and Chaim Bloom should be fired for the mess.
