Putting a Nail in the Red Sox Coffin

It’s over. The time has come to move on from everything the 2012 Boston Red Sox were supposed to be and the unfortunate reality we’ve witnessed over the last few months.

Interleague play is almost upon us, and that will mix up the races for sure. In fact, there’s a three-way tie for the top AL spot. The NL race isn’t too far away from that either. However, injuries are continuing to hit key names, which should shake things up even more. Where do things stand […]

Pink Bats Explode for Red Sox in Dominant Mother’s Day Blowout

Mother’s Day has a good ring to it at Fenway Park.

A month into the season, and many teams are holding steady. But there’s still some changes going on.
