Should the Red Sox Re-sign Cody Ross?

As we approach the final month of the 2012 regular season, it is a great time to look at what the Red Sox can do this offseason. With everything that has occurred this season, including the blockbuster trade with the Dodgers, it’s obvious the Sox will have to do a lot of work in the […]

Red Sox Considered Jays’ Bautista Before Inking Crawford

This has been a busy offseason for the Red Sox front office, but things could have gone somewhat differently. According to Ken Rosenthal, the Red Sox had discussions with the Toronto Blue Jays about acquiring slugger Jose Bautista before signing Carl Crawford. Bautista, coming off a season where he led the American League in home […]

Nationals, Jayson Werth Agree on $126M Deal

If the day wasn’t bad enough for the Red Sox, free agent target Jayson Werth has agreed to a seven-year, $126 million deal with the Washington Nationals, according to Yahoo!’s Tim Brown. While it may come as a surprise, the Nats had a lot of money available after they missed out on Adam Dunn. The […]

Carl Crawford to the Red Sox? – Brass Meets OF in Texas

If the reports are indicative of what’s to come, the Red Sox won’t be seeing Carl Crawford steal six bases against them in one game again. Red Sox brass and the free agent outfielder reportedly met on Wednesday at Crawford’s Houston, Texas home. Yahoo! Sports’ Tim Brown was the first to break the story via his […]

Let the Hot Stove Begin!!

At 12:01am Sunday, exclusive negotiating rights of teams with free agents ended, and open season began. You knew the debate over Cliff Lee would be rough, but there is the question of affording him. Ditto for many other high-profile players. And while no big moves have been made in terms of new teams for free […]

Is Jayson Werth Worth It?

Since Theo Epstein was handed the reigns to the Boston Red Sox, the team has only failed to reach the postseason one time, in 2006. While the 2010 season is almost certainly going to become the second “failed” season for Theo’s team, it has been a year of understandable disappointment. Without Jacoby Ellsbury, Dustin Pedroia, […]

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. If we all want a taste of this game again, we will have to wait a few months until the 2010 draft preparations begin. Congratulations to all of […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 20 (8-17 – 8-23)

In last week’s wrap-up, I mentioned how I wanted Henry Rowengartner from the film “Rookie of the Year” as my fantasy closer. Now, if I had to choose the best fictitious hitter to have on my roster, it would probably have to be Pedro Cerrano from “Major League”. Oh, and I don’t mean the Buddhist […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 14 (7-6 – 7-12)

I’d like to talk about Joe Mauer for a moment. With 15 HR, Mauer is currently tied for the 24th most HR in the American League. He hit 11 of his 15 home runs in the month of May, which is the only reason his home run total looks decent. With 15 on the season, […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 12 (6-22 – 6-28)

I hate closers. I really, really do. I hate them in large format leagues (like the SoB 12×12 league) because they are basically worthless with 12 pitching categories and because if they have a bad outing it really screws you over. For example, this past week in my mideason league, I had Jose Valverde of […]

Fantasy Wrap-Up: Week 7 (5-12 – 5-18)

I am writing this just a few hours after I saw Jon Lester throw a no-hitter against the Royals. I’d like to step away from fantasy sports for a minute and just take in what an amazing moment we saw in Boston. An inspirational story like Lester’s makes you just forget for a moment about […]
