2012 Blockbuster Trade a Big Win for Red Sox and Dodgers

When the Boston Red Sox visit the Los Angeles Dodgers this weekend, the anniversary of the blockbuster trade the teams agreed upon last summer will remind us of how far both sides have come in rebuilding greatness. The trade seemed incredibly one-sided on the surface, as the Dodgers received three significant big league players capable […]

Reaction to Dan Shaughnessy’s “It’s hard to get excited about these Red Sox”

Heading into the 2013 season, the Red Sox are determined to turn things around and get back on top of a competitive American League East division. Going in with a fresh start, I’m curious of what will be different this season than last season. Will clubhouse issues still exist? Will the starting pitching improve? Did […]

Do the Blue Jays Have the Best Starting Rotation in Baseball?

One thing’s clear: the Toronto Blue Jays have made the biggest moves in baseball this offseason. Even after acquiring Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle, Emilio Bonifacio and other pieces from the Miami Marlins, and signing Melky Cabrera, the team made another big move, adding R.A. Dickey in a trade with the Mets. Looking at […]

Why the Red Sox Should Stay Away from Anibal Sanchez

The Red Sox have filled several needs during the Winter Meetings. But, the Sox still need to fill their biggest need: a starting pitcher. The pitching market is getting smaller and smaller with pitchers like Zack Greinke, Brandon McCarthy, Dan Haren, and a few others coming off the board. One of the popular options left […]

Who the Red Sox Could Target in the 2014 Free Agent Market

The 2013 free agent market has stirred up excitement and suspicion about where possible free agents like Zack Greinke, Josh Hamilton, Michael Bourn and others will land. Looking ahead in the 2014 free agent market, the excitement and suspicion grows even more with Robinson Cano, Curtis Granderson, Nelson Cruz, Tim Lincecum and other top players […]

Why the Red Sox Should Chase after Brandon McCarthy

,One of the biggest needs for the Red Sox this offseason is starting pitching. The Sox have other needs to fill, but starting pitching comes off as the biggest need. Looking at the pitching market, there are several options for the Sox to explore from. Zack Greinke stands out as being the best pitcher on the […]

Red Sox Offseason Free Agent Spending: How About No?

The San Francisco Giants are the 2012 World Series Champions, the franchise’s second title in three years. I suppose some sort of “Congratulations!” is in order, but to be honest, I’m simply relieved that the past season of baseball is gone from my life forever. (I’m not kidding. It’ll be like it never happened. Deny, […]

Zack Greinke Traded to Brewers

In that year, he was 16-8 with a 2.16 ERA, 1.073 WHIP, six complete games, three shutouts, 242 strikeouts, and 53 walks in 229.1 innings pitched. In 2010, he was 10-14 with a 4.17 ERA, 1.245 […]

Sox Blast 5 HRs to Beat Greinke, Royals

Saturday’s game against the Royals featured the season debuts of three members of the Sox bench, including the soon-to-be retired Mike Lowell. Lowell started, played third base, and hit sixth in the batting order. He didn’t commit an error and made a good play in the second inning, but he didn’t light the world on […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-up: Week 25 (9-21 – 9-27)

Championship week is upon us. In our SoB league, it is a two week affair that will have you pulling your hair out and anxiously awaiting to see box scores. Just because you aren’t in the finals, doesn’t mean you can’t watch the drama unfold. Hell, you still have your consolation brackets to compete for. […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 21 (8-24 – 8-30)

We now enter Week 22, which is the final week of the regular season for Yahoo! fantasy baseball. I have secured a playoff spot in two leagues and am hanging on for dear life in another. The ironic thing is that in my fourth league, where I currently reside in 11th place, I thought I […]

Troy Tulowitzki a Top SS in 2010?

With the playoffs around the corner and the trade deadline passed it is about that time to take a look back at the 2009 season as a whole. It has been a season full of injuries to top players (Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran, Brandon Webb, Jake Peavy just to name a few). So I decided […]

Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 12 (6-22 – 6-28)

I hate closers. I really, really do. I hate them in large format leagues (like the SoB 12×12 league) because they are basically worthless with 12 pitching categories and because if they have a bad outing it really screws you over. For example, this past week in my mideason league, I had Jose Valverde of […]
