    STILL no Baseball – Part 4…

    Yeah Yeah, I know some people will count the All-Star game as a day of baseball–but for reasons I mentioned here and here, I don’t. So we have another 23 hours-ish until the unofficial 2nd half of the baseball season starts. And it starts with a team that is FUN TO WATCH, has players who […]

    Red Sox 2, Rangers 3:
    The Fickle Mistress…

    Baseball–where one day you can score 17 runs, and the very next, can’t even score 3. John Lackey had another very good game, only giving up 1 run (a solo shot by Adrian Beltre–naturally) on 5 hits while walking none, hitting a batter, and striking out 5. Throwing 108 pitches, 75 for strikes He is […]

    Happy Opening Day!

    And, despite the fact that it’s April Fools, it’s no joke. Major League Baseball actually started for some lucky folks last night, and the Nation gets their turn today at 1:05 when the Sox and the Skanks face off in New York for the first of their 19 meetings in the 2013 Campaign… And in […]

    Red Sox 4, Puerto Rico 3:
    A NON-sucking John Lackey???

    Holy Buckets! OK, I know 3 innings in Spring Training is a minuscule sample size, but holy hell, 3 innings of 3 hit ball with 2 strikeouts? 45 pitches, 31 for strikes? From John Lackey? Has that even happened is recent memory? And how fracked up is it that a pitcher can get blown save […]
