Jon Lester: Thank You, and Farewell

There is no hiding the fact that this one stings. We had to tentatively say good-bye to the ace of the Red Sox pitching staff  in July when he was traded to the Oakland Athletics for Yoenis Cespedes. With that there was still the sliver of hope that a deal could be worked out. Even […]

Whether you support the Red Sox recent signings of Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez, or not, they are on the team now. (I was originally against the Pablo Sandoval signing rumors.)

Why the Red Sox DON’T Want Pablo Sandoval

Where Are They Now? How Former Red Sox Have Fared in the 2014 MLB Postseason

I thought, perhaps naively, that the disgrace and disgust of the 2014 Boston Red Sox season would end with Game 162. I was wrong. The reminders of the Red Sox season that (I wish) never was have been everywhere throughout the 2014 MLB postseason. The Baltimore Orioles and Kansas City Royals, two non-playoff teams last year, both […]

As Jeter Leaves, Let’s Reminisce on Nomar: What Could Have Been

Regardless of your stance on the appropriateness of Jeter’s farewell tour, you’d have to admit that watching the Red Sox organization showering Jeter with adoration last weekend was painful.  Not for the fact that is was obligatory and contrived or even the over-to-top theatrics, but that it reminds us of a short stop that we used to […]

Why Watch the Red Sox? This is the End!

So maybe this occasion doesn’t call for a parade down the Charles, but it certainly is a cause for celebration. Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been searching for reasons to keep watching the Red Sox, if only to feel like a better fan and to justify to myself (and my girlfriend) why I […]

Why Watch the Red Sox? Mooooookieeeee and the Rooooookieeeeees (and Some Guy Named Jeter)

And then there were two. This afternoon, the Boston Red Sox play their second to last game of the atrocity that is the 2014 season, though you’d be excused for confusing them with the Pawtucket Red Sox. Dustin Pedroia, David Ortiz, Mike Napoli, and Shane Victorino are all out for the season, leaving a collection […]
