Lester, Red Sox Dominate Cardinals to Win World Series Opener

A Few Ways to Fix Major League Baseball

Are you someone that watches baseball?  Have you ever been to a game at Fenway, or another ballpark?  Have you ever been REALLY bored while doing these things?  If you just said “Yes,” you are not alone. With the success of the NFL and its ability to change its rules from year to year, which in turn […]

What’s the Difference Between the Red Sox and the Giants?

So here we are, sitting in the aftermath of the baseball season wondering what exactly is so special about the Giants. There are so many clichés that go along with winning that they are tough to sort through: defense wins championships; pitching wins championships; great hitting wins championships; a balanced team wins championships. When you […]

The 2011 Red Sox Will Not Win the World Series

Note from the Author: Is this satirizing obnoxious and entitled fans? I don’t know. It could be parody or maybe I’m just a punk. With the Red Sox reeling fast as the playoffs approach, we’ve reached a very appropriate time to ask “Does this team have what it takes?” Do the 2011 Boston Red Sox […]

Cliff Lee Shuts Out Red Sox 5-0; Ortiz to Play 1st Base Tonight?

Cliff Lee pitched a complete game shut out of the Red Sox to give the Phillies a decisive win in Tuesday night’s interleague matchup between the two World Series favorites.

John Henry’s $500K Fine Implicates MLB Revenue Sharing & Bud Selig More

Earlier this week John Henry told WEEI that he was fined $500,000 in 2009 for criticizing MLB and their revenue sharing model. Specifically, this is what he had to say: “Over a billion dollars has been paid to seven chronically uncompetitive teams, five of whom have had baseball’s highest operating profits.

Walking Wounded Sox Pull Out Win in San Francisco

It’s safe to say they needed this win. It’s been a tough interleague road trip out west for the Boston Red Sox, and they headed into Saturday’s game with the 2008 A.L. MVP Dustin Pedroia shelved for what seems to be indefinitely with a fractured left foot. Pedroia suffered the injury when he fouled a […]

Red Sox Spend to Contend

Since John Henry, Tom Warner, and Larry Lucchino came to own and control the Boston Red Sox, the team has lived within a budget. Granted, this budget has allowed the team to maintain a higher payroll than most teams, and has at times allowed the team to spend enough to outspend all but one franchise: […]

2009 MLB Playoffs Pick ‘Em: Results

Congratulations to the New York Yankees. Theo Epstein would do well to quote the governator Arnold Schwarzenegger, and tell the Yankees, “I’ll be back.” Plenty of records were set this October/November. Chase Utley tied Reggie Jackson for most home runs in a World Series (five); Hideki Matsui tied the record for most RBIs in a […]

Yankees Win World Series: The Empire Struck Back

Last night the New York Yankees ended their nine-year struggle to win the World Series. The Yankees also outspent every team in baseball…again.  Weighing in at just over $201 million in 2009, the Yankees outspent the Mets, who had the second highest payroll, by $52.1, or just over one season of the entire Pittsburgh Pirates […]
