Found April 28, 2013 on
The Red Sox celebrated Maine Day at Fenway Park on Sunday, and some of the state’s littlest Sox fans got the chance to ask manager John Farrell some tough questions. Farrell fielded questions on Red Sox Small Talk  like, “What is your favorite musician?”  and “Is managing the Red Sox like managing the Krusty Krab on Spongebob Squarepants?” Bruce Springsteen is Farrell’s favorite artist — they both grew up in New Jersey, and managing the Krusty Krab and the Red Sox are similar in some ways.

The video titled “Brawl In The Stands at UFC 159 (Guidos...

Juan Nieves: Ace whisperer

The Boston Red Sox arguably have the best 1-2 punch in baseball right now and it's the same two guys that were on the club last year. Same pitchers, different results and Juan Nieves is a big reason why. When ownership kicked the tiny demented monkey, Bobby V, off the Sox shoulders, the pitching staff instantly got better. Bringing back John Farrell immediately gave them a renewed...

Echoes of 1995 with the 2013 Red Sox

The 1995 season is a dividing line of sorts when evaluating recent baseball history. It is the year immediately after the disastrous strike that cost baseball the 1994 races and World Series.
