Jim's Lab Notes: Fixed

I apologize for the downtime. I haven’t been on the site today, didn’t get a text about the site being down, and just read the email about the web server being down.

Sox Therapy: Responding to Failure

Let’s start with a couple of things.  First an apology I had to step away earlier in the year (and frankly probably won’t post as much going forward) for a variety of reasons.  Ironically I stepped away just as the Sox got hot, alas it didn’t last.

Second, please join me in wishing everyone in the Sox’ spring training home of Fort Myers and surrounding areas the best as they recover from the devastation of Hurricane Ian.  As many of you know from my regular trips my parents have a condo in ...

I’ve fixed the certificate issue for the site. The system that should have notified me about the problem did not work correctly. I’ve addressed this as well.

I apologize for any inconvenience.

Sox Therapy: Dead Line

As of this moment Boston is in last place, and not playing well. They are also, with a solidly mediocre 50-50 record, 3.5 games out of a playoff spot. They are Schrödinger’s Baseball Team. They are simultaneously dead and alive.

The trade deadline is 6 PM on Tuesday 8/2. Between now and then they need to choose which side of the line they’re on, and act accordingly.

Sox Therapy: Hey Now

All-star voting has begun, and various Red Sox players have various vote totals*. Let’s take a few minutes to consider the case for them by position.

*I was trying to come up with an evergreen statement on the vote status. This might have gone too far. I could be talking about Brayan Bello, or Walt Dropo, for all you can tell.
