    Enjoy Betting on EBay?
    Do it for a good cause!

    Through Monday, August 24, The WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon is holding the 2009 All-Star Online Auction, a great opportunity to bid on sixteen once in a life time experiences and items, while also supporting the lifesaving mission of the Jimmy Fund, which is raising critical funds for pediatric and adult cancer research and care at […]

    Red Sox 10, Toronto 9:
    By the skin of their teeth…

    This should not have been this difficult… Josh Beckett was obviously having a bad night, and the intimations are that it was because he is a pitcher of routine and habit, and had to use a different catcher (‘Tek was out with neck spasms, so Victor Martinez filled in) and a different pitching coach (Gary […]

    Red Sox 3, Rangers 4:
    45 games left…

    Well, at least they weren’t swept… Another not so wonderful weekend in Red Sox Nation, with the Sox losing 2 to the Rangers in Arlington this weekend. But HOW ‘BOUT that Game on Friday night??? I cannot even tell you how close I was to turning off the TV in the top of the 9th […]

    A much calmer game…

    While bench clearing brawls, or high tension, and emotional games are very entertaining, sometimes it’s nice to just have a nice, quiet, calm win…gives your nervous system a chance to recover from the drama… And last night was such as game; with Josh Beckett notching his league leading 14th win (can the Cy Young talk […]

    Red Sox 7, Tigers 2:
    Cheese with Hair on it…

    Ye Gods! Is there anyone cooler than Dennis Eckersley??? I really enjoy listening to him in the booth–he is passionate about the Sox, knowledgeable about the games (as he should be, being a Hall of Famer and all) and his all of his expressions, one of my favorites being the one above… And how about […]
