Sabathia Bests Dice-K in Tense Pitcher’s Duel

If you can call any game where the Sox lose to the Yankees a good one, this was it. Though the Yankees rode a devastating outing from C.C. Sabathia to beat the Red Sox 3-0 to clinch the final regular season series between the arch-rivals, there was an abundance of silver lining in this dark […]

Beckett No Match for Sabathia, Sox Lose 8-4

The Yankees out-homered the Red Sox Sunday night in an 8-4 loss, bumping Boston down to 7.5 games behind the first-place Yanks. In a pitching match-up between CC Sabathia and Josh Beckett, Beckett was just unable to match Sabathia’s strong outing. Beckett gave up a career-high five home runs, including one by Derek Jeter on […]

Red Sox Nation is Seeing Red

Things seem to be getting worse and worse for the Red Sox lately. After a brutal 15-inning affair, the Sox were left with another string of goose eggs Saturdayin a 5-0 loss to the Yankees. The Yanks scored a run in each of the third, sixth, and seventh innings, before a two-run home run by […]

Why the Red Sox Have Beaten the Yankees

I’d prefer to title this “How the Yankees have had bad timing against Boston.” Yes, it’s well documented that the Yankees have lost all eight meetings so far against the Red Sox. But, I think we need a further examination as to why the Red Sox have won all eight games to see if we […]

Sox Rally to Move to 8-0 Against Yankees in 2009

In a game many thought the Yankees would finally beat the Red Sox, Yanks ace CC Sabathia was slated to face Sox No. 5 starter Brad Penny. Penny turned in by far his best start of the season, out-pitching Sabathia in his six shutout innings to help the Sox earn the 4-3 win, their eighth […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 7 (5-18 – 5-24)

It is my personal opinion that Boston’s David Ortiz used steroids. I also believe that he is no longer taking any performance enhancers as evident by his lack of power this season. So, I speak for all of the Ortiz owners out there when I ask David Ortiz to please, start juicing again! There was a […]

The First Week of Baseball

While nothing happened in the first week of baseball that was quite at the level of excitement of Boston University’s win of the NCAA hockey championship, there was some exciting action, but also a reminder of how short life can be. Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart made just his fourth major league start and later that night was killed […]

The World Baseball Classic is a Joke

We’re already on the second instance of the World Baseball Classic and Bud Selig’s wonderful idea has already become meaningless. I mean honestly, who would have thought that the World Baseball Classic would not produce the best baseball from the top talent? Who could believe that so many teams would keep their players that had […]

TGIF: 2009 Starting Pitcher Rankings

With Pitchers and Catchers due to report to camp in just under two weeks, this signals the beginning of the 2009 baseball season. The game of fantasy baseball takes the most preparation due to the massive pool of players in the sport. Over the next few weeks, I will be breaking down the best players […]

Will Sabathia and Burnett Push the Yankees Past the Red Sox?

The Yankees made the first big splashes of the Hot Stove Season with the $161 million signing of CC Sabathia and $82 million contract for A.J. Burnett.  The signings were huge for the Bombers (and not just because of CC’s size) because they addressed their biggest weakness of the 2008 season.  The Yankees had the […]

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 25 (9-22 – 9-28)

The fantasy baseball season has officially come to an end. The laughter, the tears, the tears, the tears, and more tears. Oh god the tears. I personally have been curled up into a ball and sobbing like a little baby. Since this is the very last Wrap-Up of the 2008 season, we will not be […]

Fantasy Wrap-Up: Week 22 (8-25 – 8-31)

The fantasy playoffs have begun in many leagues, and for managers fortunate enough to make it (more on that later), the time is now to lock in and make sure your roster is ready to take the title. Here’s Major League Baseball’s top headlines that may impact your roster. Cleveland’s Victor Martinez Makes Return Indians […]

Fantasy Wrap-Up: Week 19 (8-4 – 8-10)

Week 19 was full of news that will effect your fantasy world. Here are some headlines that you should pay attention to. Astros LF Carlos Lee Suffers Broken Pinky Finger Houston OF Carlos Lee is done for the season after taking a pitch off his left pinky finger. It was reported that there were six fractures total […]

Fantasy Wrap-Up: Week 16 (7-14 – 7-20)

With the All-Star week taking place, the number of games played was limited. The fantasy week started last Thursday which could have been an advantage or a handicap. In Yahoo! leagues, the minimum innings pitched requirement was waived which made for some interesting head-to-head outcomes. Those seeking to find out who prospered in the limited […]
