Bobby Abreu Is Not the Answer For Boston Red Sox at First Base

With Mike Napoli’s deal in jeopardy, the Boston Red Sox have reportedly started looking into other options at first base. According to The Boston Herald, Bobby Abreu’s name is on the table as one of those options. However, this is just a background check, which means the Sox are just in the preliminary stages of the process. […]

A Red Sox-Angels Game or the Boston Marathon?

The Red Sox fans who decided to deal with all the rain did not leave Fenway Park happy last night (or should we say this morning!).  In a game that took 13 innings to finish, the LA Angels of Anaheim defeated the Red Sox 5-3. The game started Wednesday night around 7:05pm and the last […]

Does a HR Derby Victory for Ortiz Mean a Cursed Second Half?

Tuesday morning was good to me. I woke up with David Ortiz as the home run champion (or Jose Ortiz if you’re Bobby Valentine) and George Steinbrenner dead. Apparently God had been getting my letters about my deep seeded desire to witness a Red Sox player be named the best at batting practice and see […]

Red Sox Hot Stove 2009 Preview

Five years and two days ago, the Red Sox ended an 86-year World Series drought. Today they are 18 days removed from being swept by the Angels in the ALDS. This will be a big offseason for the Red Sox because they have some glaring holes they need to fill. The team needs to acquire […]

Angels Rally off Papelbon, Sweep Red Sox

1999. 2003. 2004. 2007. In the last 10 years, the Red Sox have come back from big postseason deficits. They erased a 2-0 deficit to beat the mighty Cleveland Indians in 1999. They erased a 2-0 deficit again to beat the Oakland A’s in 2003. In 2004, they miraculously beat the Yankees after a 3-0 […]

Red Sox Playoff Run Could Go Any Way

There are only a handful of games left (12 and counting to be exact) and the Red Sox are right in the midst of another run to the postseason. Boston doesn’t have another night off as they roll through Kansas City and New York before ending on a home stand against Toronto and Cleveland. Winning seven […]

Josh Beckett Fined, Suspended Six Games

The rough start to the Red Sox season got a little rougher Tuesday as ace starting pitcher Josh Beckett was fined and suspended six games by Major League Baseball for an incident with Bobby Abreu on Sunday. In the first inning of his outing against the Angels, Beckett went into his windup when the home […]

Benches Clear in Sox Loss to Angels

The Angels did their best to rattle Josh Beckett, and it may have worked as the Angels beat the Red Sox. In the first inning, Bobby Abreu called time while Beckett was starting his delivery, causing the hot-headed ace to fire his pitch towards Abreu’s head. He didn’t seem to have intent in hitting Abreu, […]

How to Fix the Yankees 2009 Roster

The Yankees have quite a bit of holes to fill this offseason. Simply put their hitting last year was abysmal (partially due to injuries, but also some guys aging) and their starting pitching had so many injuries that they relied much too much on Sidney Ponson. Their fielding has sunk to a really poor level […]

Fantasy Wrap-Up: Week 18 (7-28 – 8-3)

The trade deadline has come and gone. Several big names such as Jason Bay, Manny Ramirez, and Mark Teixeira have found new homes. I was very happy to see that Pat Burrell was not traded to the Red Sox because now I don’t have to trade him in my leagues (I hate having Sox players). […]
