    Red Sox 8, White Sox 10:
    13. Games. Behind.

    Two weeks ago, the Sox were 5.5 games behind in the AL East. Still dead last, but 5.5 games heading into the All-Star break, while daunting, was possible. Today, after losing NINE OF THEIR LAST ELEVEN, including being swept by Anaheim AND the fracking Astros–who are, inexplicably in second place in the AL West–They are […]

    Red Sox 4, Rangers 3:
    OK, So that didn’t suck…

    In a refreshing twist, the Rangers are actually more awful than the Sox this year (not that is something to be proud off) And it looks like the $72.2 million dollar minor leaguer Rusney Castillo will be hitting the bigs sooner rather than later; some say it wil be before the 6-game homestand. All I […]

    April 6, 2015: It’s Here! It’s Here!

    Holy Buckets! After waiting so long, Opening Day is FINALLY here! We get to see if the wining grapefruit league season will translate into wins in the big leagues. We get to see if Mookie Betts really is all that and a bag of chips–and if he is, how cool is it that we will […]

What a shock it […]

    January 7, 2015:
    Pedro, and Smoltz, and Johnson, and Biggio–Oh My!

    Not that there is any surprise about these four being the class of 2015, except maybe that the writers actually would elect so many at once–it’s been 60 years after all, since so many players made it in at one time. But when you have so many who are clearly deserving of the honor, I […]

    January 2, 2015: BBA Binary Ballot Recommends Seven For Cooperstown

    Seven players from the 2014 Baseball Writers of America ballot were recommended for enshrinement in the Baseball Hall of Fame by the members of the Baseball Bloggers Alliance (BBA) today. Given the backlog of quality players on the ballot, this year the BBA adopted the plan suggested by St. Louis Post-Dispatch columnist Derrick Goold of […]
