    “The Greatest Game: The Yankees, the Red Sox and the Playoff of ’78”, by Richard Bradley

    It was the game that broke many generations of Red Sox hearts, the game that gave Bucky &*$&#@#&$* Dent the middle name (and notoriety) that will stay with him forever, and the game that probably defined a bitter rivalry better than any other game in history… We all know the date–Red Sox and Yankee fans […]

    Week # 3 & 4:
    And the Winner Is…

    Since I was unable to contact the Week #3 winner, and there was no winner for Week #4–I will be donating both of those copies of PS3’s MLB08 The Show to the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, as the winners of the previous weeks have. This is it–The LAST week you can win a copy of […]

    Red Sox 6, Rangers 5:
    Getting the job done…

    What a great weekend for Red Sox baseball–and its most excellent to see that, time and time again, the Sox managed to get it done–hopefully that will be a pervading theme throughout the 2008 campaign…yesterdays come from behind victory was the 5th in their last 6 wins–and they have won 8 or their last 9 […]

    Red Sox 7, Skankees 5:
    Doing exactly what he is supposed to do…

    Josh Beckett and Manny Ramirez–two guys who, individually, are completely capable of putting a team on their back and carrying them for a period of time. Last night, they shared the burden–Josh pitched his heart out, going 8 strong (and saving a severely depleted bullpen) throwing 105 pitches (69 for strikes) and only giving up […]

    Red Sox 9, Skankees 15:
    Well, THAT was a Butt-Ugly Game…

    Only got to see bits and pieces of this game–and that was probably a good thing–I think if I had to see Mike Timlin give up FOUR RUNS IN THE 8TH INNING I probably would have thrown something at the TV…Did you know his ERA is now a bountiful 27.00??? And no one is thinking […]

    Red Sox 5, Cleveland 3:
    That would be 4 in a row…

    Of course, he is a hero every day of the week, being one of (if not THE) best catcher in the game, but last night, the role of game saver did not go to big hitter Manny Ramirez or David Ortiz–but to Jason Varitek. His pinch-hit solo shot in the 9th inning broke the tie […]
