Cody Ross Homers Twice in Red Sox Rout of White Sox

Cody Ross really enjoys hitting at Fenway Park.

Revisiting the 2010-2011 Red Sox Offseason

I am not a fan of Theo Esptein. I always found him arrogant and overrated during his tenure in Boston. I will always remember how the sports media of Boston gave his White House snub a pass while they attacked Tim Thomas for weeks on end.
