Newbies Key 3-2 Bruins Win

Maybe the Bruins hit rock bottom, then bounced back up. Trailing 1-0 then 2-1 at home to Nashville (dead last in the Central Division), Boston came from behind to pull out an important 3-2 win on Wednesday. With All-Star (and last year’s leading scorer) Marc Savard joining Milan Lucic and Shawn Thornton on the injury […]

Umpire C.B. Bucknor Makes the Call

Umpire C.B. Bucknor made some unbelievably poor calls in Thursday night’s Red Sox loss to the Angels. While his calls didn’t directly affect the final outcome, it left Sox fans feeling sick…and worried.

Live Blog: Red Sox vs. Indians, 10/2

FINAL: Red Sox 6, Indians 2 Daisuke Matsuzaka had another fine start off  the disabled list Friday night, as he allowed just two runs on five hits and three walks in six innings pitched.

The Red Sox beat the Angels 9-8 in dramatic fashion Thursday night, when Nick Green drew a controversial bases loaded walk to tie the game, and Alex Gonzalez laced a hit down the left field line to win it for the Sox in the ninth. Angels closer Brian Fuentes suggested umpires were too “timid” or […]

Live Blog: Red Sox vs. Rays, 9-11

UPDATE: Game postponed due to rain! Well the game has just been canceled, at long last. No Charlie Moore re-run. (But they are showing the Pedro Fight Game against the Devil Rays from like 7 years ago.) The game will be replayed from the start, so at least the Sox won’t have to face the […]

Live Blog: Red Sox at Tampa Bay – 9/2

There are several things that CAN be done indoors that just shouldn’t be. It might be possible to do things like camp out, or drive, or fish or have a cookout indoors, but why even bother? It’s just wrong. Add baseball to that list. It’s POSSIBLE to play it indoors, as the Red Sox will […]
