If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 5

Almost 20% of the season is done already, and the Red Sox still have never been to .500. The Pirates have for the first time since Blackbeard roamed the waters, so it’s embarrassing. Yet somehow, they’re only 4.0 games out of both the division and the Wildcard race. Cleveland is still somehow good, and is […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 4

It’s been four weeks, and Boston is still in the division’s cellar, and who would’ve thought the Twins would be MLB’s worst team? After that start, the Rays are back in the conversation for the Wildcard team. The Rangers are starting to slip from their powerful start, and Brandon League has the Mariners just 3.5 […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 3

After another week, the standings show little to no signs of stabilizing. Philadelphia is back on top, Detroit and Tampa are making challenges, and here come the Red Sox, among others. Taking down the Reds helped Pujols and the Cardinals take over the division, but Corey Hart is about to return, and the Brewers are […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 2

After Week 2, plenty has been shaken up. The Rangers, while still deadly, have fallen out of favor. The Red Sox are on a winning streak, but Carl Crawford is still absolutely useless. The Rockies did quite well for themselves, rocketing up the standings. The Orioles are 6-8 after starting 6-1, and the Angels have […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 1

Baseball is finally here, though it’s not going in the manner for which Red Sox fans would have hoped. As can be the case early in the seasons, the standings look like bizarro divisions, with good teams doing terribly and terrible teams doing good. That’s led to some very interesting match-ups. Right now, the Rangers […]

Red Sox Still On Track For 0-162 After Loss to Indians

The Red Sox just love finding new ways to lose. They’ve lost on terrible pitching and terrible hitting, and now in a 1-0 loss to the Indians, you can throw terrible base running and terrible umpiring into the mix. Both pitching staffs did quite well in the game, especially the starters, so scoring chances were […]

Red Sox Fall to 0-5 After 8-4 Loss To Tribe

In the fifth installment of a classic adventure series, we once again rejoin “our hero” in yet another perilous situation. Be it hanging precariously over a pit of lava or strapped to a table beneath a laser while the villain laughs maniacally during his monologue, we sympathize with and are shocked by, his plight. And […]

Bats Fail Against Indians, Red Sox Drop To 0-4

The worry heading into the opening game against the Indians was that Josh Beckett, who hasn’t looked good in more than a year and a half, was ready to make his first start of the season. Beckett claims he has a renewed focus and that his awful 2010 season (6-6, 5.78 ERA) is behind him. […]

A.L. Central Fantasy Preview

The A.L. Central is a glass half empty/half full division. Here you can find some of the best and most dependable players as well as bottom-dwelling schmucks. Let’s be honest here and just point out that you want Twins, Tigers, and White Sox players on your team. If you are backed into a corner, you […]

Beckett, Red Sox Drop Second Straight in the Bronx

So much for that thunderous roar back into the standings. While a sweep would have been the nail in the proverbial coffin for your 2010 Boston Red Sox, the best that this team can hope for at this point is a split of the series. Doesn’t it taste just as bitter? As Josh Beckett and the […]

Matsuzaka, Beltre Shine as Sox Split Series

Daisuke Matsuzaka got off to a shaky beginning and looked headed for a second rocky outing in as many starts as the Red Sox closed out their four-game series with the Cleveland Indians Thursday night. Shin-Soo Choo hit his 14th home run of the season off Matsuzaka in the first inning to set the tone. […]

Errors Prove Costly as Indians Clobber Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox continued their four-game series against the Cleveland Indians Wednesday night at Fenway Park. Making his long-awaited return from the disabled list was Jacoby Ellsbury, playing in just his tenth game of the season. On the hill for the Red Sox was Jon Lester, who had lost all three of his starts […]

Lowell HRs in Return; Sox Win After Near-Brawl With Tribe

When Kevin Youkilis was placed on the disabled list before Tuesday’s game with a muscle tear in his right thumb, admit it: if you once thought the Red Sox had a chance of making the playoffs, you now thought they had no chance. They may still have no chance, but at least they have an […]

Red Sox Run Out of Heroics, Fall to Indians 6-5

For the fourth straight game, the Red Sox attempted to mount an improbable rally on Monday night against the Cleveland Indians. But, for the first time since Friday night’s loss to the Tigers, the Red Sox did not complete the comeback. Adrian Beltre really tried to deliver a win for the good guys, as he […]

VIDEO: Texas Fan Falls From 2nd Deck for a Foul ball, Saves $13

NEW POST: For video of the fan killed trying to get a foul ball during a game Thursday, July 7th 2011, click here. —– In what I can only describe as the most eye opening example of the state of this country’s economy, a fan at the Rangers/Indians game last night took a 30 foot […]
