    Book Review: The Way of Baseball:
    Finding Stillness at 95 MPH,
    by Shawn Green with Gordon McAlpine

    While Shawn Green never played for the Red Sox (he was a member of the Blue Jays, Dodgers, Diamondback and the Mets), when I was contacted about the possibility of reading his book The Way of Baseball: Finding Stillness at 95 MPH, I was very interested. We all know that a large contingent of sports […]

    Red Sox 3, Tampa Bay 0:
    The Beckett is BACK!

    Holy…Buckets! Yeah, I know, Josh Beckett has been more than effective all season so far (and often, at least at the beginning, the only pitcher winning) but last night wiped away any lingering doubts that the Josh Beckett who was the MVP of the 2003 World Series at 23 years old, and the Josh Beckett […]

    Red Sox 14, Toronto 1:
    Beating the Snot out of Them…

    While the high scoring games of this weekend (Saturday’s 16-4 win and yesterday’s contest) are certainly fun to watch, they do not count any more than winning by 1 run. So, despite the fact that the Sox outscored Toronto 35-6 in 3 games, and have won 9 in a row, they have not gained any […]

    Red Sox 11, Skanks 6:
    One win closer to 200…

    Tim Wakefield always has the chance to win. With every start, the potential is there to throw a no-hitter–or give up 6 runs in the blink of an eye–that is the way of the fickle mistress known as the knuckleball. Last night’s contest had the added wrinkle that Jason Varitek was to catch Wake because […]

    Red Sox 6, Skanks 4:
    One Down, Two to Go…

    No, Jon Lester did not have his very best stuff–But Freddy Garcia couldn’t even get out of the 2nd inning, so I will take a competent Jon Lester performance over that ANY day of the week. Going 6 innings, Jon threw 112 pitches, 66 for strikes, giving up 3 runs on 8 hits while hitting […]
