    One of my favorites (borderline homo). Class act on and off the field.

    Not sure how his type of class translates in Boston.

    He's white, he'll be fine. Kenley definitely getting called a n***** after his first blown save though.

    The justification for this offseason will be that the Dodgers are gearing up to go all in for Ohtani next offseason only for Cohen and the Mets to outbid everyone for him.

    You're not wrong and very possible the Mets outbid everyone.

    I think whoever is "really interested" is going to be offering a blank check and it will ultimately come down to where Ohtani prefers to play and the team around him. 10 years 400M at the minimum.

    J. Turner, T. Turner, Seager, Muncy, Bellinger, Machado, etc...all left, started sucking, or got old. Time flies for an infield.

    So Correa surely takes them out of the bidding for Ohtani next year, right? RIGHT?

    Doubt it,

    I'm as frustrated as the next guy about this off-season, but lets not forget this team has been in the top 5 (mostly 1/2) over the last 10 years in terms of payroll and still will be up there this year when it's all said and done.

    Ohtani in urine yellow and feces brown next year, bro...
    and regarding salary...if you lead bb in attendance, you should have the top salary or near it...that's how you get those attendance numbers. It's a nice symbiosis...and profit.
    Where we fall miserably down is in the super key spots of leadership and are waaay to confident to the point of " the embarrassment of riches" albatross which has been around our neck for that same period. Firmly around it.
    The FO is slick and clever, but each passing year, diminishes in it's stature, imo.. Other teams, and some direct competition, have bitch smacked us to what may be a little brother role for a while. We'll be good, but we won't be the best. The profits will be there a- plenty still...no doubt. But as a life long fan, what do I give a fuck how rich Guggenheim's grandkids are ?
    I want to see a WS winner to justify the spent $ and my annual/7 decades loyalty.
    I sincerely hope I'm wrong, but the " Blue Wave" is looking more like the Red one that never came to fruition a month ago.

    "Odds on the Mets to win the World Series improved from +900 to +750 by Wednesday morning, per Caesars Sportsbook. That is the third-best odds behind the Houston Astros (+400) and the Los Angeles Dodgers (+600)."

    +
    600??? Really? What am I missing here, because this team got weaker while the competition got stronger? Plus there's still the issue of manager.
