    Red Sox 3, Oreos 4:
    And that, as they say, is that…

    Pretty much still in one of those numb, disappointed, angry states vacillating between disbelief and resignation… The completion of the crappiest Red Sox season doesn’t surprise me at all. We all knew this was coming for a couple of weeks now. The crappy pitching, the errors, the phoning it in by some people… I am […]

    Red Sox 8, Oreos 7:
    Walking in the Snow Barefoot….

    …Uphill–Both Ways… Holy Buckets! Really feels like that, the way the Sox have chosen to get to the postseason–or not… And it’s not over yet, the Sox still have to win tonight, and if Tampa Bay also wins tonight, or, even more bizarrely, both LOSE, there will be a 163rd game at the Trop, tomorrow, […]

    Red Sox 3, Oreos 6:
    And Jacoby taketh away…

    Isn’t it ironic that Jacoby Ellsbury, who gave the Sox another chance with his 3 run blast in the 14th inning against the Skanks on Sunday night, was the one to drop the what should have been spectacular catch in the 6th inning in last night’s contest, resulting in an inside the park 3-run homer […]

    Red Sox 7, Skanks 4, in 14 Innings:
    By the fingernails…

    Five Hours and Eleven Minutes… Never saw THIS coming… I have to tell you, I thought the Sox were Toast, Done, Finished, Kaput…and they may very well still be, as they cling to a 1 game lead in the Wild Card, with 3 more games to play. But last night, there was a spark of […]

    Book Review: The Big Show: Charles M. Conlon’s Golden Age Baseball Photographs, By Neal McCabe, and Constance McCabe

    Honestly! I am going to need a bigger coffee table, to be able to display all of the wonderful books I have acquired over the years. And this one only adds to my quandary. What an astounding book! Some of you may not know who Charles M. Conlon is, and if you don’t, you are […]

    Red Sox 5, Oreos 7:
    Not Helping their Own Cause…

    This was going to be 7 Random Thoughts, in honor of the E# for Tampa Bay, but I had more to say… (Shocking, I know.) 1. Yes, the margin to the Postseason had decreased, no thanks to the Sox themselves. I guess we have to thank the Skanks for the help (shudder) in defeating Tampa […]
