Which Starting Pitcher Should Be the Red Sox Ace Come October?

The Boston Red Sox lead the American League East by one-and-a-half measly games over the Tampa Bay Rays. If I learned anything from 2011, it’s never to assume the Red Sox will make the playoffs. (Thankfully my glasses are protecting me from my natural instinct of clawing my eyes out at the mere mention of […]

Emptying the Tank: Big 4, Lester, Theo, Thomas, Welker, Schilling, Media

I haven’t written a column in a while, so I figured I would chime in on a bunch of sports topics floating around the airwaves, newspapers and Twittersphere the past month.

Forgive the cliche, but it’s nearly game over for Curt Schilling’s video game company, 38 Studios. The company laid off all of the employees on Thursday, one week after it was unable to make payroll. The company had nearly 400 workers. 38 Studios was founded six years ago in Maynard, Massachusetts, but later moved its […]

Is Game Over Imminent for Curt Schilling’s Video Game Company?

Curt Schilling has many talents. Pitching in the playoffs, bleeding into socks, butting his nose into steroid hearings without cause – the list goes on and on (and on and on, given Schilling’s talent for ranting). But apparently one talent Schilling doesn’t have is making video games. Kate Bramson of the Providence Journal reported Tuesday […]

What We Learned About the Red Sox this Week: Formulas for Failure

So 0-3 again. That sounds familiar.  Call me sadistic, but I’m starting to find the Red Sox total ineptitude to be kind of funny. Here are some thoughts as the season kicks off, yet again, with a losing streak: Ben Cherington did not do his job. No, moving pieces into holes to create more holes […]

Schilling Has Right To Be “Pissed” About Osama bin Laden Burial, But He’s Wrong

On Monday morning, former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling called the Dennis and Callahan show on WEEI, telling listeners he was “pissed” about the fact that Osama Bin Laden was given a proper Muslim burial at sea. While I couldn’t disagree more with Schilling’s sentiments, I absolutely respect his right to express his opinions. That’s how we do […]

Curt Schilling Bloody Sock Doctor Under Investigation

Does the name Dr. William J. Morgan ring a bell? Well if it doesn’t, it should. The Red Sox would likely still be mired in a seemingly endless drought without a World Series win. I’ve lost count. What would it be now? Ninety-two years? Anyway, Dr. Morgan was the brilliant man who performed a risky […]

My Boston Sports Wish List for the Next Decade

There is never anything wrong with looking back. But after a while, you just get tired of it. Over the last few weeks, we have all been inundated with year-end and decade-end reviews, “Best of” lists, and whatever else writers and newscasters like to throw at you to fill time in December. It’s all well […]

Curt Schilling Considering Run for Senate Seat

UPDATE, (09/03/09): Schilling is a registered Independent, and if he threw his name in the hat for the Senate seat, he would have to run with that party despite his affiliation to the Republican party.
