    Back to Nuthin’ Again…

    Once again, NO news–I go to the Boston newspapers online and there is nothing since Sunday! All they are running is AP feeds…. And their biggest news there is that Albert Pujols is mad and cranky (so what else is new??) about the whole steroid brouhaha and refused to let a reporter and camera man […]

    3.5 weeks….

    It’s hard to believe that in 3.5 weeks, Pitchers and Catchers will report to Fort Myers, FL to begin the 2008 campaign…and then about 5.5 weeks after that, the Sox will play their 1st game of the season in JAPAN.

    How much Longer will this go on???

    Holy Buckets! Feels like forever since I have written—but there is just…nothing…out… there… We are at 30 days until Pitchers and Catchers, and the biggest news in the last week is the negotiations for a backup catcher? No disrespect to Doug Mirabelli, who does a superb job catching Tim Wakefield, and I think also contributes a […]
