Congratulations to the Boston Red Sox.
I can’t say THANK YOU enough for your support during the 2013 season. It has been a year up highs and lows and at times not knowing where the road would take us.
I will be taking a little personal time off but I will return off and on during the off-season, with news, and other things to keep your interest until spring training.
See you soon

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
John Lackey has a chance to do something no Red Sox pitcher has done since Carl Mays in 1918. Be the winning pitcher in a World Series-clinching game at Fenway Park. That bit of Boston history is not lost...
BOSTON -- Michael Wacha had a funny way of preparing for his World Series start that's supposed to save the season for the St. Louis Cardinals.
The 22-year-old October ace spent Tuesday afternoon on the tarmac at the St. Louis airport when the team plane got grounded by mechanical problems.
It took all day before the Cardinals finally arrived in Boston, trailing the Red Sox...
My hopes for game six were pretty simple. I wanted John Lackey to pitch a gem, and I wanted to see Stephen Drew get a bit of his mojo back.
Amazingly, both of those things happened.
Lackey was both a bad-ass mothereffer AND the horse he rode in on, shutting down the Cardinal bats on a night when he didn’t seem to have his A game and threatening Farrell to keep him in the game...
BOSTON -- Michael Wacha's masterful pitching run is over. So is the St. Louis Cardinals' season.
The 22-year-old rookie who burst on the major league scene with the poise of a veteran failed on baseball's biggest stage.
Wacha allowed six runs in 3 23 innings Wednesday night and the Boston Red Sox went on to a 6-1 win in Game 6 for their third World Series title in 10...
The Cardinals appear to have made one of the best decisions in franchise history when they passed up giving future Hall of Famer Albert Pujols some $250 million when Pujols became a free agent after the 2011 season. Not only did St. Louis save the money by not matching the Angels’ offer, but the Cardinals also got a compensatory first-round pick.
That pick was No. 19 overall in...
ST. LOUIS -- Beating the Red Sox in Fenway Park on back-to-back nights poses a challenge even greater than trying to get David Ortiz to make an out in the World Series.
But the Cardinals will send the right man to the mound for Game 6 Wednesday night.
No pitcher in the land stands a better chance of slowing down the Red Sox than young right-hander Michael Wacha, based on the...
On Wednesday night, the incredible journey of John Lackey and the 2013 Boston Red Sox came full circle.
At approximately 11:27 PM EST, Red Sox closer Koji Uehara got the final out on a strikeout to clinch the first World Series title for the Red Sox at Fenway Park since 1918.
After the misery of the last two seasons, the chicken and beer, Bobby Valentine, etc, and the bombing...
John Lackey has the opportunity tonight to close out the World Series for the second time in his career.
One more win. One more win and the Boston Red Sox will be World Series Champions. Considering how last season went, this would be quite the accomplishment for a team that is now built on character and work ethic and not whining and boozing. While this Red Sox season has been far...
Here's to the winners.
I won't mention everyone, but here are some of the Boston Red Sox who left indelible impressions on me this post-season:
John Lackey: His former pitching coach with the Angels, Padres manager Bud Black, tells a great story about how he bumped into Lackey at the start of the season. Both the Padres and Red Sox opened in New York and stayed in the same...
Wow! What a difference a year makes. From 69-93 to 97-65 and World Series Champions, David Oritz, Dustin Pedroia, John Lester who were vital parts to the 2007 team that last won the World Series. John Lackey who fell short in Game 2 to youngster Michael Wacha got the upperhand tonight. Wacha, similar to Game […]
The World Series has been wild, unpredictable and absolutely nerve-wracking for Red Sox and Cardinals fans, but Boston will look to put an end to the hard-fought battle by securing a win on Wednesday night.
Just one win away from being crowned champs, John Lackey will get the start for Boston, hoping to avoid a do-or-die Game 7 situation at Fenway Park.
With David Ortiz destroying...
BOSTON -- By the end of the fourth inning, Major League Baseball already had issued rules and regulations to the media that would be covering the World Series' trophy presentation Wednesday night.
Sure, the email included the obligatory, "IF the Red Sox win Game 6 ... " But such a qualifier was not necessary.
The Red Sox led 6-0 at the time and, yes, it felt like...
Yes, the Red Sox have won two other World Series in the last decade but neither of them were clinched at home inside the confines of one of the last temples of baseball, Fenway Park, until Wednesday night. With a, 6-1, victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in game six the Boston Red Sox are the World Series champions.
Once again as he has done countless times this season Red Sox...
Barry Chin / Boston Globe
After hitting rock bottom last year, the Boston Red Sox climbed their way all the way back on top to clinch their third championship in the past decade.
One thing's for sure...tomorrow will be the least productive day across Boston offices. World championships, costumes, and candy? Who can concentrate?
Entering tonight, confidence around this team...
Jon Lester interrupted Erin Andrews speaking with John Lackey: "Nice ******* job!" Of course he was talking to Lackey, silly. [NY Daily News]Lester wasn't alone.
