  1. Richard Thompson Free Reed 5 CD Box

    I’ll bite. Still available?
  2. Headed down later this morning. See some of you there perhaps.
  3. Appalling, isn't it? It confirms many of the rumors that have been circulating for years. What a loss!
  4. David Ortiz shot

    I saw a report that indicated his gallbladder may have been removed. I imagine more reliable details will be forthcoming. He's a beloved icon in these parts. In the past, I've heard other players and team officials name Ortiz as there favorite person associated with the team. Here's a link to an article that discusses Ortiz: https://www.bostonglobe.com/sports/redsox/2019/06/10/seen-firsthand-why-people-dominican-republic-adore-david-ortiz/GOIUktTPb6JXgx5B3JwveJ/story.html?event=event12

  8. Play ball! 2019 MLB season thread

    I have fond memories of Koji and his time with the Red Sox. On other fronts (Mets), things are not good. There are reports that Cano is being benched after two recent incidents of not running out the box. Also, Yoenis Cespedes had an accident on his Florida ranch over the weekend and is being evaluated in New York. Multiple fractures in one ankle. Odd descriptions of a "violent fall" and "stepping in a hole." Those descriptions seem inconsistent. One wonders if and when (and where?) Cespedes will play again.
  9. Percy France Discography Help

    You beat me to it! For those who might not get the reference, Doby refers to Larry Doby, the first black Major League Baseball player in the American League (Jackie Robinson) was in the National League.

    Lord shows the Oliver Jackson Black & Blue date as being recorded in NY, FWIW. I don't see anything by France in Europe in Bruyninkx.
