Results Mixed for Previous Relievers-Turned-Starters

Boston Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine and GM Ben Cherington announced last week that RHP Daniel Bard will be used as a starter in Spring Training, to see if he would be a good fit for the rotation on a permanent basis. While I have already stated my reasons why I think that this move […]

Beckett’s Best Too Much For Yankees; Red Sox Win First Series of 2011

Through their first eight games, the Boston Red Sox starting staff had thrown a league-fewest 16 1-2-3 innings. Sunday night at Fenway Park, Josh Beckett threw nearly half that in just one start. Beckett’s best pitching performance since a June 2009 complete-game shutout of the Atlanta Braves sustained the Red Sox through six innings of […]

Beckett Injured as Red Sox Come Back Late to Split with Yankees

Jonathan Papelbon found himself in a familiar situation Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium. Once again, the go-ahead run stood at the plate and a blown save seemed likely, but Papelbon struck out Randy Winn to seal the deal for his tenth save and a 7-6 victory. Just like the first game of the series, the […]

Two storied franchises are beginning a new chapter in their historic rival. We’ve previewed the Sox extensively, but now it’s time to see […]

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 […]

Yanks, Chamberlain Roll Through Boston

Red Sox fans were all thinking the same thing. If the Sox can sweep the Yankees this series, then we can steal the AL East. However, apparently no one told New York, who rolled over Boston 9-5 on Friday night. The Red Sox came into the series in the Bronx down five and a half […]

Yanks Bats Blast Sox 13-6

The Red Sox needed a win to keep up with the Yankees in the AL East. However, what they got what a whoopin’ instead. The Yankees, vowed to avenge their 0-8 record against the Sox on the year, unleashed their bats to get their first win against Boston this year. New York bashed their way […]

You Guys Like Swarms of Things, Right?

A huge swarm of bees delayed a game in San Diego on Thursday, and even though you just did, you really didn’t need to read that sentence again.  It happened, I swear. I would have thought that that many bees would have delayed the game a lot longer than an hour, but modern beekeeping is […]

Sox Win 7-3, Improve to 5-0 Against Yankees

If the Tampa Bay Rays own the Red Sox, then I think it’s safe to say the Red Sox own the New York Yankees, no matter where they play. The Red Sox improved to 5-0 against the Bronx Bombers this season, including to 2-0 at the new Yankee Stadium, after a 7-3 win. Josh Beckett […]

Joba Chamberlain Mom Arrested for Selling Meth

First, Joba Chamberlain was arrested for DUI during the off-season. Now, his mother, was recently arrested for selling meth to an undercover officer (a much more severe crime in my book). Jacqueline Standley, 44, was arrested Saturday at her Nebraska apartment on felony charges of selling a gram of methamphetamine to an undercover cop, said police […]

Joba Chamberlain DUI Video

In the offseason, Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain was arrested for DUI while in Nebraska. He was drunk, and had some pretty interesting things to say to the officer that pulled him over. Thankfully, the officer’s dash cam recorded all of the hilarity and it has now been released to the general public. I now present […]

How to Fix the Yankees 2009 Roster

The Yankees have quite a bit of holes to fill this offseason. Simply put their hitting last year was abysmal (partially due to injuries, but also some guys aging) and their starting pitching had so many injuries that they relied much too much on Sidney Ponson. Their fielding has sunk to a really poor level […]

Fantasy Wrap-Up: Week 22 (8-25 – 8-31)

Here’s Major League Baseball’s top headlines that may impact your roster. Cleveland’s Victor Martinez Makes Return Indians […]

The Race to the MLB Playoffs: Week 1

In this new feature, each Friday I’ll be taking a look at the race to win the division as well as the wild card and offer an outlook on the fast-approaching playoffs. Now that August is starting to wind down and Septemeber is looming ahead, the Red Sox still find themselves in second place in […]

Joba Chamberlain to DL with Rotator Cuff Tendinitis

The Red Sox-Yankees rivalry got a little less interesting, with the Yanks placing 22-year-old Joba Chamberlain on the 15-day disabled list with rotator cuff tendinitis in his pitching shoulder. The Yankees will call up Ian Kennedy in Chamberlain’s place. The Yankees said that Joba should rest his shoulder for 10 days before beginning a throwing […]
