    This just in: Mirabelli is Toast…

    Holy Buckets! The Sox released Doug Mirabelli this morning, apparently thinking that Kevin Cash can do just as well catching Wake, is young, and is cheaper… Mirabelli was supposed to start is today’s game, and catch Bartolo Colon, but he has been scratched after this morning’s workout and replaced with Dusty Brown… No official announcement […]

    Red Sox 12, Twins 5
    And the Sox win the Mayor’s Cup!

    Yeah, I know, its not that big of a deal–especially the way the Twins have been the last couple of years, but its a win nonetheless, and with all the drama and injuries in the last week, but its nice to win SOMETHING… Clay Buchholz did better than he has been, throwing 3.2 innings, giving […]

    Red Sox 4, Mets 3:
    Breaking a nasty losing streak…

    Finally! After losing 6 in a row (and having 1 tie) the Sox, helmed by Tim Wakefield, managed to squeak out a win against the Mets…Wake did pretty well (any outing where he doesn’t give up 6 runs in an inning is a pretty good outing) going 4 innings and giving up 2 runs on […]

    This just keeps getting better and better…

Three weeks today, the Sox will play their 1st game that isn’t on at 6:00 in the morning–but in the middle of the night (10:05pm) has that ever happened before that the Sox play a nightNIGHT game in April? Heck […]

    Red Sox 0, Dodgers 4:
    Not even waiting for the hand basket…

    What…the…*(&$#@&*#()*&@*() is going on? On Friday, all looked well. OK, the Sox had lost a couple of games, but hell, its only Spring Training, it doesn’t even count…. Now, on Monday morning, RSN wakes to find Josh Beckett tweaked his back and had to leave his game on Saturday, and now it’s not even known […]

    Red Sox 6, Dodgers 9:
    Happy now?

    Well, Jonathan Papelbon got what he wanted–he broke Mariano Rivera’s record of $750K that he got in 1998 (with the same amount of time in the bigs) by agreeing to a 1 year $775K deal with the Sox yesterday. He also will receive a $25K bonus if he makes the All-Star team…His contract is the […]
