There was a lot of talk about Jacoby Ellsbury coming into this Red Sox season. Much of the talks were about him being in a contract year and the chances of him being back in Boston next year. Ellsbury’s career thus far is full of ups and downs. He came in during the 2007 playoffs, […]

Dice-K: Was it Worth the Hype and Money?

Daisuke Matsuzaka cost the Boston Red Sox over $100 million, with $51.1 million allotted for the posting fee and another $52 million for the six-year contract.

After the drama that led to his trade at the deadline in 2008, Manny Ramirez continued his career in the National League by re-signing win the Dodgers on a two-year $45-million deal.

Adrian Beltre Signing Completes Red Sox Defensive Overhaul

When I first heard that the Red Sox signed Adrian Beltre to a one-year, $9 million contract with a 2011 player option for $5 million, my first thought was that it was a perfect deal for both parties involved. On the one hand, the Red Sox fill a gaping hole at third base, but only […]

Who Are Your Most Hated Sports Figures?

With the announcement this week that the third incarnation of Brett “Farv-ruh” is upon us, I found myself re-evaluating my feelings on the sports figures I loathe most.
