Great, so then the BP stat-head geeks can tell us exactly how awful the Sox are.

Seriously, that is pretty cool...

They obviously want to torture the statheads with low-OBP and low-K pitcher organizational philosophies.

Which basement is this being held in, and who will be bringing over the character sheets for the D&D game sure to follow?

Dont forget the new 18 sided dice.

I love seminars that feature GM's and assistant GM's. You can learn a lot from those.

True, but this event features Sox Asst. GM Rick Hahn.

EDIT: I grew up with the Sox contact for this event.

Hey, I play D&D, and I find it offensive to be lumped in with these undesirables.

Well that's pretty illogical. Care to qualify this?

Maybe Wise will be back by then so we can figure out in realtime how low his UZR/150 will be

Hey, I'm all for simulated games! The Sox seem to have a hard time winning real games this year.

Like most MLB teams, the Sox will probably be hiring a bunch of these "geeks", if they haven't already. This is pretty much a "Help Wanted" event...

As much as the old-school hates it, these people are the future of the front office game in MLB...
