Torey Lovullo would be 'honored' by managerial offers

CLEVELAND — Torey Lovullo’s resume has never looked better. Lovullo was an intriguing managerial candidate before he became the Boston Red Sox’s interim skipper when John Farrell stepped away from the team to treat his Stage 1 lymphoma. Now, with the Red Sox on a solid run to close out the 2015 season, it’s reasonable to wonder what’s next for Lovullo. “I haven’t...

The Dumpster Fire Burns On Strong

I asked the question almost two months ago and boldly stated that Red Sox fans would have no meaningful games after the 4th of July. And here we are, watching a Bobby Valentine-esque bunch of guys who just don’t give a **** being led into battle by a manager who wishes he knew a fraction of what Bobby V knows about baseball. And the pythagorean theorem or making wraps for that...

Breaching The Valentine Line No Longer Easy

Before the Red Sox lost seven straight, it seemed like a cakewalk for them to surpass the 69-win threshold so valiantly put up by Bobby Valentine's 2012 squad. Now, not so much. With just 33 games left in this miserable season, they still need 14 wins to get to 70. That's a .424 winning pace—and they're currently winning at a .434 clip. Also, as we pointed out before, they are...

The Road To Breaking The 'Valentine Curse'

Your 2014 Carmine Hose have 38 games left to play in this dismal season. In order to surpass the win total of the 2012 Boys of Bobby Valentine, they will have to take at least 14 of those games.

Summer Camp, Red Sox Style

If there’s one thing that really set the 2013 Red Sox team apart, it was the lack of controversy. After the 2012 Bobby Valentine show, it really looked like the guys just put their heads down and did their jobs. No dead grandmothers, no contract BS, no chicken and beer. This season may not go quite that smooth. Apparently, hijinks have begun. The only man in Boston more critical...
