If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 3

After another week, the standings show little to no signs of stabilizing. Philadelphia is back on top, Detroit and Tampa are making challenges, and here come the Red Sox, among others. Taking down the Reds helped Pujols and the Cardinals take over the division, but Corey Hart is about to return, and the Brewers are […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 2

After Week 2, plenty has been shaken up. The Rangers, while still deadly, have fallen out of favor. The Red Sox are on a winning streak, but Carl Crawford is still absolutely useless. The Rockies did quite well for themselves, rocketing up the standings. The Orioles are 6-8 after starting 6-1, and the Angels have […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 1

Baseball is finally here, though it’s not going in the manner for which Red Sox fans would have hoped. As can be the case early in the seasons, the standings look like bizarro divisions, with good teams doing terribly and terrible teams doing good. That’s led to some very interesting match-ups. Right now, the Rangers […]

N.L. West Fantasy Preview

Within this division rests the World Series champions, Coors Field killers, ace pitching studs, and the Arizona Diamondbacks. The best team in the division isn’t even the one with the most highly regarded fantasy talent, which can only speak volumes for the division’s depth. San Francisco Giants The reigning world champions’ biggest strength is it’s […]

Manny Back in Boston?

Well, maybe not Manny Ramirez, but possibly good ‘ole friend Manny Delcarmen. The Boston native was shipped out of Beantown on August 31 in wake of his recent struggles with the Red Sox. Even though he struggled in 2009 and 2010, the Colorado Rockies still coveted his services; why you may ask? That is beyond […]

SoB MLB Power Rankings 9-14-10

The Rays and Yankees are still locked in a heated duel, with the Rays having a 0.5-game lead and a game in had. Ditto for the Padres over the Giants. The Rockies are only 2.5 games out, and the Braves are just a game behind Philadelphia ad leading the Wildcard race by 1.5 over San […]

Red Sox Trade Manny Delcarmen to Rockies, Waive White Flag

It’s amazing how quickly things turn around. A week ago, the Red Sox made a bold move in claiming Johnny Damon off waivers in an effort to add outfield help as the Sox pushed toward the playoffs. Johnny Damon said “Screw You” to Theo Epstein in not so many words, and the Red Sox arrived […]

SoB MLB Power Rankings 8-31-10

The Rays and Yankees are still tied with 31 games to go; the Red Sox are 7.0 games back. The Cardinals (and pretty much the Giants) have seemingly died. The Padres have too, but they still had a huge division lead built up to eat the blow. And assuming Manny doesn’t help the White Sox […]

SoB MLB Power Rankings 7-20-10

With the next SoB power rankings here, it’s been fairly easy to pick teams. The White Sox have widened their division lead, the Cardinals have taken one again, and the Giants have quietly punched their ticket to the Wild Card race. The Rays are back in form, the Braves, Padres, and Rangers are all still […]

Walking Wounded Sox Pull Out Win in San Francisco

It’s safe to say they needed this win. It’s been a tough interleague road trip out west for the Boston Red Sox, and they headed into Saturday’s game with the 2008 A.L. MVP Dustin Pedroia shelved for what seems to be indefinitely with a fractured left foot. Pedroia suffered the injury when he fouled a […]

Night After Colorado Laser Show, Pedroia Fouls Ball Off Foot, Leaves Game

Dustin Pedroia put on the laser show on Thursday night against the Rockies, going 5-5 with three home runs to power the Red Sox to a 13-11 win in Colorado. His third HR came with a man on in the 10th inning after Jonathan Papelbon blew the save for the second straight night. The second […]

Red Sox Rock Jimenez But Still Fall 8-6 in Denver

After the drama of a 2-1 loss Tuesday night Red Sox Nation was prepared for another pitcher’s duel on Wednesday. Taking the mound for the Rockies was ace Ubaldo Jimenez, owner of an ERA well under two and entering the game with 13 wins. The Rockies got off to a fast start, scoring four runs […]

Rockies Pitchers Frustrate Red Sox Hitters All Night Long

The Boston Red Sox and Colorado Rockies began a three-game series Tuesday night at Coors Field. The Red Sox were coming off of an 8-1 homestand that saw them move into second place in the AL East, tied with Tampa Bay and just a half-game behind New York. On the hill for the Red Sox […]

Red Sox Interested in Ryan Spilborghs?

According to Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, three teams, including the Red Sox, have inquired about the services of outfielder Ryan Spilborghs. The Rockies called up OF Carlos Gonzalez, which could make Spilborghs expendable. They can replace Spilborghs with the recently demoted Matt Murton. Spilborghs is a righthanded hitter and reserve outfielder making just $415,000, so […]

TGIF: The Atkins Diet

One thing that all fantasy owners have in common is that we tend to elevate our panic levels to critical conditions. Due to this, we may lose faith in under-performing players and quickly rid ourselves of the burden. I myself let San Francisco’s Pablo Sandoval go rather quickly after he didn’t live up to my […]
