Here’s Johnny: Our First Glimpse of Damon in a Tigers Uniform

This weekend, Red Sox Nation will get their first look at Johnny Damon in a Tigers uniform. Do we still hold a grudge? Should the Yankees have let him go? Should we have picked him up?

Johnny Damon, Tigers Agree on Deal

Former Sox and Yankees outfielder Johnny Damon has finally signed with a major league team, inking a one-year, $8 million deal. Other teams with serious interest were the Rays, Braves, and White Sox, but the Tigers were thought to be the only club to give Damon a guaranteed deal. Other contract offers included incentive-clauses that […]

Red Sox All-Decade Team: 2000′s

This past decade has been good to us Red Sox fans, as weird as that is to say. Up until Game 4 of the ALCS, it looked like it was going to be another 10 years of let downs. It turns out, we were wrong. With two World Championships, the Red Sox have truly been […]

Johnny Damon Hits a Home Run on Raw

Johnny Damon became the first baseball player to guest host Raw, and certainly made a big impact. Boos accompanied his entrance, as was to be expected from the Tampa Bay (Rays) crowd. Though Damon quickly endeared himself to all in attendance by starting off the show with a six-diva, Santa’s Little Helper tag match. With […]

Before Testing Free Agency, Johnny Damon To Appear on Raw

World Champion and free agent Johnny Damon, fresh off defeating the Phillies in the World Series, will be the guest host of Raw next Monday from Fort Myers, Florida. It will be Raw’s Christmas episode, and to that end, Damon will bring some “Secret Santas” with him. Whatever that means, it should be fun. Damon […]

Red Sox Hot Stove 2009 Preview

Five years and two days ago, the Red Sox ended an 86-year World Series drought. Today they are 18 days removed from being swept by the Angels in the ALDS. This will be a big offseason for the Red Sox because they have some glaring holes they need to fill. The team needs to acquire […]

Red Sox Very Clean, Get Swept by Yankees

Perhaps the plane tickets were wrong. Perhaps there was some baggage-related mix-up. Whatever happened, the Red Sox offense never arrived in New York, losing the fourth game of this crucial late-season series to the Yankees 5-2. Damon and Teixeira’s back-to-back home runs in the eighth inning — off Daniel Bard, no less — may have […]

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 […]

Red Sox, Bay Suspend Contract Discussions

2009 All Star Jason Bay will have to wait until the end of the season for a new contract. The Red Sox and Bay have put off discussions for a contract renewal for a second time. The Sox tried to sign Bay to an extension during Spring Training, however talks were suspended. They picked up […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 5 (5-4 – 5-10)

As I have documented before, I am in three baseball leagues. In two, I am in great position in the top 5. In one, I am in dead last thanks to two factors: Injuries and Lance Berkman hitting under .200. The news did not get any better last week when Cubs’ 3B Aramis Ramirez dislocated […]

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 […]

Yankees Place Posada on DL, Matsui Says No to Surgery

Sox Fans normally don’t want to see players get injured, even Yankees, but this has to be good news for the home town team. The Yankees placed Jorge Posada on the 15-day disabled list with an injured shoulder. Posada, who signed a $52.4 million, four-year deal in the offseason, is not sure whether to go with […]

Sox, Lowell Survive the Rain

The Red Sox continued to their winning ways against the Yankees and took game two of this four-game weekend series in the Bronx, winning 6-4. Mike Lowell and Kevin Youkilis provided the offense today with a home run and a strange triple. Josh Beckett also pitched a decent game for his eighth win of the […]
