I don't get the fascination with Holt unless you take the emotion out of it.  He's a utility player because he's simply not that good at any position.  He is a so-so hitter.  His versatility is his primary asset and he's great in the community.  But he'd need to take a hometown discount if he wants to play here because someone will overpay him.

Could be interesting but is he interested in a backup role and what would he cost?  That's the real question.

He hasn't played in two years.  The NY press is calling him one of the worst FA signings ever.  The Sox are hopeful Pedey can return and he is a better ballplayer.  I don't think he's a guy the Sox need right now.  If they're going to spend less money, spend it on good young players, not bad old players.

Great to see you on here Bear!

Yes, 2018 was very disappointing.  If you have trouble remembering it it's probably a good thing!

Wishing you good health!

Personally I think Cora is up to his ears on this thing.

If you look at the sign stealing, it was predominantly successfully used by the home team.  If that is any measue, I think our road record in 2019 exceeded our poor record at home.

"Today the Commissioner said that the investigation has expanded to 2018 and 2019."

Manfred has already investigated the Sox in 2017 (the infamous Apple watches).  Different coaches with Farrell, but you'd think Sox were more discreet in 2018 with Cora & Co.  But Cora got a talking-to again by MLB a couple weeks ago related to Houston.

And he should Elk.  There has to be a line drawn finally between proper behavior and shoddy one.  With the drugs, steroids and other matters blotting our great game, perhaps some frontier justice is long in order.  I can only hope the Red Sox aren't among the crooks to be outed over the next few months or however long it takes to have this thorny problem finally abated.

Red Sox Hot Stove / Commissioners Sign Stealing

The Commissioner is quoted as saying that the investigation was primarily focused on the Astros. In an article published yesterday in the Athletic Ken Rosenthal argued that the investigation should be expanded to include 2018 and 19. Today the Commissioner said that the investigation has expanded to 2018 and 2019. He also said that they will follow the evidence to wherever it leads. It doesn't sound that this investigation will be a quick one. I think it is also fair to believe that this investigation won't be confined to just the Astros

I think this could easily become the biggest scandal in baseball in a generation.  The repercussions could be severe.  Not to be given to hyperbole or sensationalism but I suspect the commissioner is going to come down on the guilty parties like a ton of bricks.
