If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 11

It’s the middle of June, and many of the top teams are starting to slip. In fact, only three active winning streaks are longer than two games. But those streaks are making it a much more exciting race. While not all of the divisions are exactly close, the Wildcard races provide plenty of intrigue to […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 9

Nine weeks are gone in the season and June is upon us. Detroit is struggling while Boston is moving back up. The Dodgers are looking to recover their old form. The Astros are only the fourth worst team in the league. The divisions are starting to open up, with division leads being between 3.0 and […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 8

The season’s second month is just about over. Josh Beckett threw the season’s first no-hitter. Boston has lost 10 straight. Toronto has taken advantage. Detroit and Oakland are struggling. Atlanta and Milwaukee are looking to hold on. The Wildcards are still in flux. It’s a fun time as we head into June, so let’s look […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 3

After three weeks of the season, Milwaukee and Oakland are still ruling the roost, while the AL East and Central divisions both have 2.5 games between top and bottom. Other than the League leaders, no clear contenders have emerged yet. Though the teams people though would do well are starting to sift their way up […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 2

Two weeks are gone in the MLB season. Plenty of teams that were taken with a grain of salt or even discounted before the season are pulling ahead in the early going. Other predicted contenders aren’t doing so well. Then again, it is early, and that can happen before teams settle into a groove. But […]

Red Sox Sign Reliever Edward Mujica

Boston lacked relievers until today when the Red Sox acquired a top reliever in Edward Mujica. Set-up men for the ever-dominant Koji Uehara are hard to find at a reasonable price point, but Ben Cherrington did his magic penning a deal with the former St. Louis Cardinal. During the 2013 season, Mujica held a 1.73 […]

Red Sox Take Full Page Ad to Thank St. Louis Cardinals, Rub Salt in Wound

On Tuesday, almost a week after the Boston Red Sox clinched the 2013 World Series title (!), Red Sox ownership took out a full page ad in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch as a thank you to the city of St. Louis and the Cardinals organization. The ad — which you can see here, courtesy of […]

Red Sox Battery Lester, Ross Take Down Cardinals for 3-2 World Series Edge

The […]

Jonny Gomes Powers Red Sox to Even World Series at 2-2

With two down and two runners on in the sixth inning, Jonny Gomes came up to the plate as Mike Matheny went to his bullpen after Lance Lynn (0-1) allowed a bloop hit to Dustin Pedroia and a four-pitch walk to David Ortiz. The right-handed reliever Seth Maness came in and was locating his sinker […]

Cardinals Minor Leaguer Accuses Jon Lester of Doctoring Baseball in Game 1

In a tweet that has since been deleted (of course), Cardinals’ minor league pitcher Tyler Melling accused John Lester of doctoring the baseball during Game 1 of the World Series last night. Jon Lester using a little Vaseline inside the glove tonight? pic.twitter.com/IyQn2iqg5f — Tyler Melling (@TylerMelling) October 24, 2013 Random Twitter user (and Cardinals fan, clearly) Dennis Paruch […]

Lester, Red Sox Dominate Cardinals to Win World Series Opener

Rejuvenated ace Jon Lester spun a masterful start with 7.2 shutout innings, and the Boston Red Sox took advantage of multiple miscues by the St. Louis Cardinals to win Game 1 of the World Series 8-1. The trouble started for the Cardinals in the very first inning when the umpires convened to review David Ortiz’s possible […]

Connelly’s Top Ten – One Down, Three to Go To Duck Boats

Red Sox thoughts 1. Jon Lester * When it’s on he has the best lefthander cutter since Al Leiter * Love the curve ball * Love the composure – no histrionics on close calls * Great game despite only throwing 15 of 28 first pitch strikes

Just one week remains until the playoffs begin. Four divisions and five slots overall are locked up. The Wildcard race in the East is still heated at this late stage, so pay close attention to the melees in the upcoming weeks. It’ll be fun to watch who ends up with which seed, so let’s look […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 24

The playoffs are stating to come into picture, but the AL is still full of action in the season’s final two weeks. The Indians, Orioles, Yankees and Royals are all well within striking distance of the Rays and Rangers for a Wildcard spot. While five divisions are all but wrapped up, the Cardinals and Pirates […]
