When you spend $88 million on a player he better be worth every red cent. Hanley Ramirez is not worth the high-priced contract he signed with the Red Sox. Hanley Ramirez reminds me of a movie from the 1980s starring a young Tom Hanks, called The Money Pit. A newlywed couple buys what they think […]

The Boston Red Sox stink. The Chicago White Sox also stink. Now, that shouldn’t be breaking news to anyone in Beantown or the Windy City. Both teams have wildly underachieved after making big splashes this past offseason to bring in high priced free agents. The Red Sox, of course, brought in Hanley Ramirez and Pablo […]
