    Spare me the Fish Analogies…

    Right after I use one… Apparently, we now have a fish of our own (although I would rather the Trout variety…), as the Sox have acquired Mariners 1st baseman/outfielder Mike Carp for either cash or a PTBNL.

    Opening the Thought Locker

    Going round the horn, (or the bend, depending on who you ask)with some random goings on during this first full week of Spring Training. I was talking to my friend, Paul from Boston this week, and we both pretty much agree that we want the goal for this year’s campaign to be that the games […]

    No Hall Call…

    So, for the first time in 17 years, the BBWAA failed to elect any of the 37 candidates (13 returning, and 24 newbies) to be enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame. The person who got the closest was first timer Craig Biggio, who at 68.2% was 39 votes shy of the 75% needed to […]
