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 […]

Sell Dan Haren While You Still Can!

Daisuke Matsuzaka made his long awaited return to the mound Friday night in his first start since April 14.

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 1 (4-5 – 4-12)

Welcome to the 2009 season! Let me guess: You are already freaking out and making rash decisions. No, no, no. You are talking trash to every member in your league and demanding a plaque with your name on it. Then there is my personal favorite where you are in first place, but are just waiting […]

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 […]

Apparently the Yankees offer of Philip Hughes for Johan Santana has been withdrawn again. They just keep flip-flopping on whether Philip Hughes it worth any trade for Santana.
