    Book Review: Waiting for Pumpsie
    by Barry Wittenstein

    With Martin Luther King, Jr. Day coming up on Monday, it is very appropriate I was contacted recently to review a new children’s book about the very first black player to play for the Boston Red Sox: Elijah “Pumpsie” Green. It is also appropriate as 2019 marks the 60th anniversary of his call up from […]

    Red 4, Astros 1:
    We’re going to the World Series!

    Holy Buckets! Are we trapped in some fracked up alternate/reverse dimension? Or is it just baseball being baseball? Because I reallyREALLY cannot explain how David Price(!!)), who has never won a postseason start EV-VA (although he did come close earlier in the series), not only pitched a gem Thursday night (6 IP, giving up no […]

    OK…What Happened Here?

    The Sox were playing TRANSCENDENTAL baseball, with a 17-2 record, and easily beat Oakland in Friday night’s contest… And then the bottom fell out.

    The Middle of the Night Portion of Our Program…

    So with Patriots Day weathered out, The Sox take their 13-2 record, their lead in the AL East (and 5 games ahead of the Skanks–ha ha ha ha ha) and head to the Left Coast for 6, with 5 of them being 9:05pm or later…. As I have stated before, there are some good and […]
