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 […]

Studly QB’s in ass-tight jeans aside, we are here to discuss Pedro Martinez. There […]

Regardless of Joe Maddon’s intentions for their roles as pitchers, it […]

Former Sox ace Pedro Martinez will make his long-awaited return to the major leagues as early as Wednesday with the Phillies, assuming he passes his physical.

That trainer, named Angel Presinal, was banned from all private areas in every major league ballpark after an October 2001 incident involving an unmarked gym bag full of steroids.
