Meet Boof Bonser

When the Boston Red Sox traded for Boof Bonser over the winter, it flew under the radar a little bit. For good reason. A casual baseball fan may know his name, you don’t forget a name like Boof. Sad to say, most of Mr. Bonser’s notoriety comes from merely that, his name. This will be […]

Lester Dominates Twins, Helps Sox Sweep

For the Red Sox to right this ship, they are going to need their starting pitchers to step up. For the second straight night, the Sox received a dominant effort from their starter. Jon Lester tossed a complete game on Thursday night, helping his team sweep a brief two-game series over the Minnesota Twins. Lester […]

2009 Fantasy Baseball Season Wrap-Up

Aaaaaaannnnnnnnnnd that does it! The baseball season has officially come to an end. This of course means that fantasy baseball has officially closed in the year 2009.

Pedro Martinez on the Verge of a Comeback?

Eat crow. It’s an English idiom that means humiliation by admitting wrongness or having been proven wrong after taking a strong position. I recently had to eat crow with a certain player you might know- John Smoltz. You might remember the stance I took on John Smoltz’s Fantasy Value before he took the mound for the first time […]

Sox Bench Ortiz, Beat Twins

First allow me to thank all of our service men and women who have died in combat while protecting our country. Without all of their sacrifices, there’s a chance this blog (or any other for that matter) would not exist. Now, to the Sox game… For seemingly the first time all season, the front of […]

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 […]

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). […]

Players I Targeted

Draft day approaches and you think you have everything planned out. But let’s face it, the only round you have a definitive plan for is round one. Every round after that is made on the fly or every decision is made out of pure panic. So you may be asking yourself: “Pete, you’re a reliable […]

Sox Beat Twins to Win Mayor’s Cup
