    Red Sox 7, Blue Jays 1 Today, it’s all about Julian Tavarez…

    Throwing only the 2nd complete game the Sox have had this season (Wake had the other in April..) Julian Tavarez was nothing short of brilliant in his start (and finish) last night…His Line?

    Red Sox 6, Minnesota 0 It’s all about The Papi

    The two magic numbers of the day….11 more games to go, and the number of homers Big Papi is sitting at–and everyone is all worked up about 1 more….but that would only TIE him–he actually needs TWO more to surpass Jimmie Foxx for the club record…and unfortunately, he did not fare so well last night, […]

    Red Sox 5, Skankees 4 And that is 3 of 4…

    I know, I know, it means absolutely nothing in the grand scheme of things…But to RSN, it means a TON…to wit: They did not clinch while we were in the house! They now have to go on the road, and celebrate in one of 2 baseball hotbeds–Toronto, or Tampa Bay… Yeah, sure, they are TRUE […]
