Bats Come Alive During Red Sox Turnaround

Twenty-six runs scored over a ten game span is bad, that is an average of 2.6 runs per game. A barren wasteland of offensive production. No wonder the Sox lost ten games in a row. In the last three games the Sox have averaged six runs per game. Not surprisingly, with that level of offensive firepower, […]

What do you do for an encore after winning the World Series? This is the question that has been nagging me more and more as the 2014 season rapidly approaches. (I guess it’s already here, but do games in a British penal colony really count? I say no.) Unless the Boston Red Sox pull a […]

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.
