Boston Legacy for Roger Clemens

Last week the Red Sox announced that Pedro Martinez, Roger Clemens, Nomar Garciaparra and Joe Castiglione would be inducted into the Red Sox Hall of Fame this August. This star-studded class has a pitcher who had one of the most dominant stretches in baseball history when Pedro Martinez went 101-28 with a combined 2.54 ERA […]

Should the Red Sox Consider Signing Zack Greinke?

With this year’s baseball free agent class, many questions arise about where the best free agents like Zack Greinke and Josh Hamilton will end up. It is debatable of who is the best free agent. But, considering Hamilton’s off-field issues and asking price are scaring teams, it makes Greinke the best free agent out on the market. […]

In Defense of Josh Beckett

Talking about Josh Beckett is nothing new in Boston. In 2006, Red Sox fans were excited and unsure about acquiring him. We knew what he was capable of after watching him dispatch the Yankees in the World Series when he was only 23 years old. However, the Red Sox were forced to give up the […]

The Case for Retiring Pedro’s Number

In early December, Pedro Martinez officially announced that after 18 years, he was retiring from baseball. Martinez retires with a record of 219-100, an ERA of 2.93, 8 all-star game appearances and 3 CY Young awards, which are, in all likelihood, Hall of Fame credentials. Because of this news, it is a good time to reflect […]

Verlander’s MVP Season Compares to Pedro in 1999

The news earlier this week that Justin Verlander had won the Most Valuable Player created a bit an uproar throughout the world of baseball, after all there had been a relative understanding that pitchers had their own award with the Cy Young, whereas MVP belonged to everyday position players. An examination of the participating of […]

Most Valuable Position Player: Verlander, Beckett, and the Demise of Morality in Sports

With the Red Sox facing impending doom, we might as well look forward to the end of season awards. The most interesting award this year, is by far the American League Most Valuable Player (sorry National League, but I just don’t really care). There are two elements that make this year’s MVP so intriguing.  The […]

Baseball Brawls: Are They Necessary?

Coming off of their series win in Baltimore, the Red Sox faced the possibility of a repeated controversy from their last series with the Orioles. Before the All-Star Break, David Ortiz received a four-game suspension for his dispute with pitcher Kevin Gregg. Incidents involving fighting in baseball have been happening for years, and Boston fans […]

Is Pedro Martinez a Hall of Famer?

Former Red Sox ace Pedro Martinez is apparently on his way to retirement. According to the Associated Press, Martinez has ruled out a return to the majors just three weeks after it seemed he suggested he wanted to return to the Red Sox. He said that those comments on a return were misinterpreted. With Pedro […]

Pedro Martinez Looking To Return With The Red Sox

Pedro Martinez spent seven seasons with the Red Sox, made four trips to the playoffs, and won it all in his final year with the team in 2004. He then went on to sign with the Mets after that season, had one good season, and had three other injury-riddled years in New York. Pedro returned […]

Manny Ramirez Set to Return to Fenway Park

No one really knows what to expect from Red Sox fans this Friday night. With the Red Sox hosting a three-game interleague series against the Los Angeles Dodgers this weekend, every fan in Red Sox nation is trying to decide how to react when they see Manny Ramirez in Fenway Park again. We’ll probably see […]

Regarding Opening Night: Pedro’s Future

Much has been made of Boston’s Opening Night Ceremonies last Sunday night. Most of it has revolved around five-year-old Joshua Sacco and his recitation of Herb Brooks’ speech from the movie “Miracle.” More specifically, the part where Brooks says “I’m so sick of hearing about what a great [hockey, replaced with baseball] team the [Russians, […]

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 […]

Pedro Martinez vs. Yankees: New Uniform, Same Enemy

Look, I know it hurts. None of us wanted it to end like this. But, this is the way it is, the way it has to be. It’s over for us. Those are the sentences I once wrote on my ex-girlfriend’s dry-erase board when she was away at work to inform her our relationship was […]

Pedro Martinez on the Verge of a Comeback?

Eat crow. It’s an English idiom that means humiliation by admitting wrongness or having been proven wrong after taking a strong position. I recently had to eat crow with a certain player you might know- John Smoltz. You might remember the stance I took on John Smoltz’s Fantasy Value before he took the mound for the first time […]

TGIF: Pedro Martinez Fantasy Value

He’s baaaaack! Well, maybe his decision to come back wasn’t as drawn out as Roger Clemens or Brett Favre (who I hope doesn’t come back, stops trying to be the center of attention every offseason, and sticks to doing commercials for Wrangler Jeans). Studly QB’s in ass-tight jeans aside, we are here to discuss Pedro Martinez. There […]
