    Red Sox 6, Tigers 3,
    Climbing over .500…

    Holy Buckets! Never in a million years did I think Daniel Bard would beat reigning Cy Young/MVP Justin Verlander, who is looking a bit human these days (gave up 5 runs on 10 hits–a season high), but he DID… Although, to be more accurate, it was Daniel Nava (LOVE him!) who beat him, stroking a […]

    Post 1200: Red Sox 7, Tigers 4:
    Back to .500—for the 752nd Time…

    Actually, its only the 6th time…it just FEELS like 752–and as I have said, repeatedly, we are almost to JUNE, and more than 25% into the season, stepping up and back to a measly .500, and STILL dead last in the division, and the Cookies are STILL in 1st place (Tied with Tampa Bay)…YUK… But […]

    Book Review: Starting and Closing:
    Perseverance, Faith, and One More Year

    By John Smoltz, with Don Yaeger I have always liked John Smoltz, even way back when he was a starter, then a closer, and then a starter, for the Atlanta Braves, during their amazing run of 11 division titles though a good deal of the 90’s. So when he signed with the Sox in 2009, […]

    Red Sox 6, Oreos 5:
    Back and Forth to .500…

    I reallyREALLY hope the 2012 campaign isn’t a dance around .500, with one day they are there, and the next they are not….and about a 1/4 of the way through the season, I never in a million years would have thought that the Sox would be 22-22. But then again, I never thought the Cookies […]

    Red Sox 8, Oreos 6:
    Holy Buckets! .500 Baseball

    This. Is. So. Sad. It took the Sox until May 21st. MAY 21st. To climb back to .500. I can even remember the last time they were here…UGH And last night’s win was no thanks to That Clay Person, who had a 31 pitch meltdown in the 3rd inning, coughing up 4 runs… He managed […]
