    Making Boras’ head explode…And other fun Christmas/Hanukkah activities…

    I am thinking that Satan’s head is probably leaking copious amounts of smoke right about now–He can’t get $15-20 million from the Red Sox for Daisuke Matsuzaka, and the whole having him sit in a room full of English speaking folks–and telling him only what he wanted him to hear (or, the “truth” as he […]

    The presents keep coming and coming…

    Whooo Hoo, by the time Christmas gets here, we will be all spoiled…:-) Every day there seems to be a new deal for a new pitcher or such–after a season of disappointments, the off-season has been anything but… In an interesting twist, apparently the “just a formality” physical underwent by J.

The 31-year old, after playing only 9 major leason seasons, opted to begin his managerial career–with the Red Sox Single-A team in Greenville, S.C, the Drive of the South Atlantic League. Gabe […]

    So….How do you say “Oh Crap” in Japanese???

    The Red Sox Brass, pretty much sick and tired of the BS that is Scott Boras, have arrived on his doorstep to pretty much force a negotiation… To me, a negotiation is where two sides offer and counter offer, making compromises, until a deal is reached. I guess Satan didn’t get that memo–if this shocks […]
