Sox Sweep on Patriot’s Day

The Red Sox are definitely the hottest team in baseball. They have now won nine out of ten games after an 8-3 victory over the Rangers at Fenway. Clay Buchholz had a very strong outing after a few shaky ones, going six strong innings and allowing zero runs on five hits and two walks. He […]

Why I Hate Opening Day

First, I want to get it out of the way, I am a Red Sox snob and a die-hard one at that. I feel entitled to that team as if I am on a different level in my relationship with that club. But I am, indeed a real Red Sox fan. What does that exactly […]

Big Papi Hits Walk-Off 2 Run Shot!

Nothing’s better then watching David Ortiz hit the long ball. Especially twice in one night. And especially down by one in the 9th with one man on. Because David Ortiz has the magic. And tonight was no different. Ortiz faced Al Reyes who he had been 0-4 in his career against. And, with Julio Lugo […]

Lester vs Sonnanstine 8/21

The Pressure of Playing in Boston

Is it Myth or fact? Is the pressure so intense in Boston that major league baseball players can’t take it. Examples: Edgar Renteria signed a 40 million dollar contract in the winter of ’04 and played so poorly he was moved the next offseason.
