Why the 2012 Red Sox Should Throw in the Towel

The last place Boston Red Sox, now 6.5 games out of first place in the American League East, have reached a breaking point.

2012 MLB Preview: Yankees Top American League Power Rankings

For the Boston Red Sox, the 2011 season was an homage to all of the disappointing Red Sox teams of the past. The Sox had a potent offense, mediocre pitching staff and even a historic collapse to cap it all off. The baseball season is an epic journey and usually teams with the most talent, […]

Revisiting Saltalamacchia’s “Latin Players” Comment About Cervelli

The Couch Potato Report: Pats, Sox, B’s, and New Stewie!

We have arrived at the last weekend of September. In TV Land, that means season premiere time. This is the time when the networks bring back their big name dramas and sitcoms, while sprinkling in new shows that they hope will catch on like wildfire. Gone are the dog days of summer, when we were […]

George Steinbrenner Passes Away at 80

To many in the Boston area, he was one of the most hated men. We despised the way he built his teams and formed a Nation to counter his Empire. Still, George Steinbrenner should be respected as one of the greatest owners in baseball history. George passed away today at the age of 80 after […]
