Hey fam – if you’d like to support Turtleboy and what we do here, feel free to hit the donate button at the top. We basically have to run this site like a Bernie Sanders campaign now since we’ve been blacklisted by Google and Facebook, due to the fact that rabid SJWs keep reporting our posts. Getting blacklisted by Google is a death sentence for most websites, since it’s much harder to monetize. And we all know the damage Facebook has done. We’re never going to stop fighting for free speech, but in the meantime the best way for turtle riders to fight back is to donate to the cause. Without you people none of this is possible. We love you all.

 

What kind of Worcester-centric sports blog would be if we didn’t talk about the Paw Sox moving to Worcester and becoming the Woo Sox?

The Pawtucket Red Sox and the city have signed an agreement that clears the way for the Triple A team to move here and play in a stadium that will be built on the former Wyman-Gordon property near Kelley Square. City Manager Edward M. Augustus Jr. emphasized Friday that the project involves more than just bringing a minor league baseball team to Worcester and building a ballpark for it. He said it includes a large-scale redevelopment of 18 acres of largely vacant and blighted property in the Kelley Square area that will add to the ongoing revitalization of the Canal District and transform that part of the city.

In addition to construction of a 10,000-seat multi-use stadium, at and estimated cost of $86 million to $90 million, the deal includes a development blueprint that calls for $90 million in private development for 225 market-rate apartments, a 150-room hotel, a second boutique hotel consisting of about 100-110 rooms overlooking the ballpark, and 65,000 square feet of retail/restaurants. All of that would be done in the first phase of the project by March 2021, according to city officials.

Look, we shit on Ed Augustus and Joe Petty a lot. This would not have happened if he who shall not be named was mayor. So credit where credit is due. This is very cool and they made it happen. It’s the best news Worcester has gotten in our lifetime. It’s gonna be cool to have washed up major leaguers who are too old to play in Double A coming to Worcester to watch their careers die. We are New England’s second largest city after all. They have always belonged here.

Here’s my only issues:

  • I really liked driving through Madison Street because it’s abandoned, two lanes, and you can fly through it. Now it’s gonna be a traffic nightmare.
  • Where are you gonna put the junkies? This is ground zero for them. If this is phase one of “Operation Webster” then I’m all for it. But just understand that if there is no plan for them that if you come here for a game you’re gonna have the slopqueef mafia begging you for cash that they claim is for their starving families, but is really going to Diego’s kid’s college fund.

  • They better not mess with Kelley Square. I heard some rumors saying they’re going to, which would be a sad day for Worcester. Out of towners have no idea what to do at this clusterfuck, which is great. Because they line up like sheep while Turtleboy pulls this move….

Sadly this all ends if they redesign Kelley Square and turn this into the way to get to the stadium.

What they should do is make this the way to the stadium:

The orange is parking, the green is the stadium, and the red arrows are how you get there. Boom. Problem solved.

I also like the Woo Sox because it pisses off assholes like Buttmunch Billy Shaner at Worcester Magazine who grew up hating jocks because they were in the theater club, and have a permanent distaste for organized athletic events as a result of this:

Whining about gentrification, like it’s a bad thing:

Look, I laugh every time they say “Worcester Renaissance” too. But the people who would prefer to see their hometown become a methadone clinic factory instead of a place for yuppies are the worst of the worst. I don’t give a shit about “lower income residents.” We do enough for them with our taxes. Time for a baseball team.

Of course these are the same people who have been complaining that an unsanctioned skate park called Worcide will be demolished. Newsflash – you don’t have a right to skateboard under a bridge. And obviously getting rid of this eyesore is a must if we’re gonna build a stadium and try to make Worcester look like less of a shithole. This is what the skate park looks like that

That’s not a skate park, its a junkie motel.

I’ll tell you who probably isn’t gonna like this either – the Worcester Bravhearts. But at least they have a sense of humor about it…..

I’m all in. Let’s goo Woo Sox!

    The question is are they going to clear up little San Salvadore on Water street? Is Kelly Square going to become a rotary? Will they EVER finish the 290 rehab? I know route 287 through White Plains NY to the Tappan Zee Bridge took about 40 years to complete. Let’s not repeat that.

    Can’t wait for the ground breaking photo op to happen. All the wags putting the gold plated spades into the earth. releasing the mother lode of toxic waste. An earlier poster mentioned the WRTA project. That was also my first thought. Hi diddle, diddle the cat and the fiddle, the cow jumped over the moon, the little dog laughed to see such fun and the dish ran away with the spoon.
    The parts of the cat and the fiddle are played by Mayor Puddy and the city council. Ed Augustus appears as the cow. The laughing dog is Jim McGovern. The dish is Larry Lucchino and that isn’t a spoon he’s running with it’s a trunk full of cash.

    This is the best swindle since Henry Gondorff and crew took on Doyle Lonnegan.

    Remember when the Chicago crew from Rush Street Gaming wanted to turn the Madison St. waste land into a slot parlor? Is 75 baseball games better than 365 days of one armed bandit action?

    On parking for the ballpark–Wyman Gordon also owns several empty lots in the immediate area that are occupied now by weeds, broken pavement, rats and some broken fences. Those will be the parking lots, and no, they won’t be free. The city needs as much revenue as possible to pay off the borrowing to buy the land and build the ball[ark (and fund the private mixed use development on the largest Wyman Gordon parcel’s inevitable and necessary massive TIFs). Also, it will keep hoods from dumping dead junk cars in the lots.

    TB, that orange area you said will be parking… yeah thats Wyman Gordon, they’re still quite active, that shit isn’t abandoned, they make airplane parts and shit there and employ quite a few people, I doubt they’re going to sell their lot with all their heat treat, sonic testing, and cnc machining equipment.

    AAA ( Pawtucket)IS the top minor league. AA (Portland )is 2nd in line and Single A (Lowell) is the next LOWEST level. Duh!

      AAA is mostly rehab or short-term fine tuning for prospects and callups, and as a temp pool for spot shortages for the parent club. The prospects are stocked – and the heavy lifting is done – at AA, and many MLBers go straight from AA to the bigs.

    #1 The stadium is on the Gold St. side, not the large WG lot.
    #2 This is AAA which is a level HIGHER than AA and it doesn’t get “washed up AA players”, its the premier of the minor leagues. This, this is actually a good thing. Tornadoes, Bravehearts, Railers all jokes. This is major – the real deal.

    • Brian Albrecht
      August 18, 2018 at 10:17 pm

      Hey dumbass you’re wrong. AAA Is not the fucking premier of the minor leagues you muppet. AA is where all the good young players are. AAA has the injured major leaguers and guys who are like 35 but dont have major league start. You worcester morons always do your best to make yourself look worse and worse. Being Italian doesn’t help your chances of having a brain either. You must still live 20 years ago when AAA was actually a decent quality product. AA is where its at and literally everyone knows that except you. Think before the next time you open your mouth you pussy.

    LMAO. This is so Worcester it hurts! Excited as can be that they get the god damn AAA Red Sox. Turtleboy’s DEAD! Perm ban from twitter…SEE YA LATA PUSSY! The honest to god truth is that a site like this, a want to be kind of controversial website, but without any balls, cant survive on the internet in the year of our lord 2018 without twitter. This trash site still lives on facebook where its 45 fans literally make hundreds of accounts and follow it on facebook. FACEBOOK IS TRASH, everyone knows twitter is now, and its here to stay, its the future folks. DIDI and her gang are going to mass report you if A1D4N K34RN3Y even thinks about making a new account. hahaha fucking perma ban! YOU STUPID FUCKS YOU! I’m seriously a better blogger than anyone on this site with the exception of SOUTH SHORE SQUIRTER GIRL <3. She's a wild bitch and absolutely earned her moniker, she once power washed my ceiling for me in fucking seconds. She's got some aim with that thing, definitely does her kegels. Thanks again babe, I just re-upped so tell the usual suspects in pembroke I'm back on. BABE I think its time to jump ship and start working for daddy again. This site is clearly sinking. THE ADS OMG THE ADS….I USE A FUCKING AD BLOCKER ON THIS SITE AND IT SEEMINGLY DOESN'T WORK HERE IN THIS LOW CLASS NEIGHBORHOOD. But honestly AlD4N is now asking for donations.. and a perma ban from twitter. IT CANT WORK. HES DEAD, HES FUCKING DEAD. RIP 4lDAN you were probably a shitty dad

    Pro baseball is already on the downswing, yet investors and city officials think a minor league Worcester team is going to be successful?

    Kelley Square reminds me of something out of a post-apocalyptic dystopian wasteland like in Blade Runner or Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. Can’t see how baseball is going to change that….

    You got the stadium in the map on the wrong side Madison Street. What are the going to do with my favorite place to pick up chicks? I’m talking about Burger King. I become the big fish in a tiny pond when I treat a hooker to a bag of fries. It makes me feel like Bill Clinton. I love that guy. I would get on my knees and suck his Democratic Schlong.

      If the people making these decisions remember how well $.99 parking at the Worcester Common Mall went, they will have free parking.

      So…prepare to pay.
