Yankees’ Michael Pineda Ejected for Pine Tar Against Red Sox

Yankees starter Michael Pineda has had a great start to the 2014 season, allowing just two earned runs over the first 18 innings this year (3 starts; 2-1 record). He was a phenom his rookie season in Seattle, and then spent two years on the shelf after his trade to the Yankees, so his fast […]

To Boo or Not to Boo? Ellsbury Returns to Boston with Yankees

To boo, or not to boo? That is the question Boston Red Sox fans are presented with as Jacoby Ellsbury makes his return to Fenway Park adorned in the pinstripes of the New York Yankees. On the one hand, he’s a Yankee. On the other, he helped bring two World Series trophies to Boston in […]

Did the Red Sox Burn Out Their Clutch?

Anticlimactic Opener I understand that it’s only 7 games into the season, but something is already missing. Where’s the magic? After an ending like last year, how could this season for the Red Sox start off so slow? First off, the Sox lost their season opener to the Baltimore Orioles, but it was a well-pitched […]

Video: Time-Lapse of LEGO Fenway Park Being Built

That’s right. I’m talking about a 12-foot LEGO model of Fenway Park, complete with hundreds of LEGO fans. I didn’t see any 2013 LEGO World Series banners, though, or bearded players for that matter.

If a regular, everyday picture is worth a thousand words, what is a #selfie of David Ortiz and POTUS Barack Obama worth? 2,000 words? 10,000 words? Several Bill Simmons mailbags? Mastercard priceless? Well, maybe not exactly priceless. It seems as if Samsung might have had a little skin in the game after signing a deal […]

Managing Expectations: A Red Sox Fan’s Guide to Overcoming the World Series Hangover

What do you do for an encore after winning the World Series? This is the question that has been nagging me more and more as the 2014 season rapidly approaches. (I guess it’s already here, but do games in a British penal colony really count? I say no.) Unless the Boston Red Sox pull a […]
