Ranking the AL East: Catchers

We’re inching ever closer to Opening Day as games have begun in Spring Training! As our ranking series goes on, this week focuses on catchers.

The Right Catcher for the Red Sox: Salty, McCann, Ruiz, Pierzynski or Weiters?

After constructing a World Series Champion team in 2013, Cherington has few holes to fill before defending the title in 2014. The biggest piece missing from this team is a catcher.

Orioles Belt Out 12 Hits as Pitchers Quiet Red Sox

Fantasy Fast Forward: Pitchers and Catchers Diamonds in the Rough

Today, we wrap up our “Diamonds in the Rough” series with a very shallow position, a very deep position, and a position I hardly want to devote any real time to at all. Catching, as it seems to be year in and year out, features one the shallowest groups of top-tier talent at any position […]

It is finals time in the SoB baseball league. This begins a two-week struggle to decide the champion of the league. Hopefully you were one of the lucky few out there to be battling it out for a championship. I once again will be watching from the sidelines. If you made it to the show, […]
