David Ortiz’s Home Run Vs. Indians Was Nice Advertisement For Mo Vaughn

If you were paying close attention to Monday’s Boston Red Sox game in Cleveland, you might have noticed a name quite familiar in Red Sox history. No, we’re not talking about Terry Francona or Mike Napoli in the Indians dugout. We’re talking about the Hit Dog, former Red Sox first baseman Mo Vaughn. The 1995 American League MVP has carved out a nice entrepreneurial life in his...

My Five Favorite Red Sox Opening Days, Starring Dwight Evans, Mo Vaughn and Dave Roberts

Today is Opening Day for the 2016 Boston Red Sox. And in my mind — a sick and twisted place you don’t want to visit without hand sanitizer — it’s the greatest single day of the year. So to recognize this glorious event, I am recounting the five greatest Red Sox opening day moments ever. And by “ever”, I mean games that happened during my life time and that I happened...

Olde Sox: The Mighty Mo Vaughn

Every team wants power, and not just in small doses. Make all the jokes you want about slap hitters on the Royals, or the on-base percentage monsters that the Athletics and Rays chase after, but deep down inside, every single front office wants mounds and mounds of dingers. In baseball the home run is the game’s greatest currency and, by that standard, Mo Vaughn was hella rich...

Ex-Red Sox Star Mo Vaughn Turns 48 Years Old Today

(Springfield Republican)Maurice Samuel "Mo" Vaughn (AKA 'The Hit Dog') turns 48 years old today. Although it's been 17 years since Mo wore Carmine Hose, it's impossible to forget the impact he had on Red Sox teams of the 1990s. Fans adored him and relished his ferocious left-handed, upper-cut swing. He was one of the most feared hitters in the American League during his Boston tenure...

1995 AL MVP: Belle Had Better Numbers, but Vaughn Won on Personality

The Indians of the 1990s won a lot: five straight American League Central Division titles, 100 games in a shortened season in 1995, a Rookie of the Year and All-Star Game MVP (both Sandy Alomar Jr., in 1990 and 1997), and two pennants. But they’ve become known for what they DIDN’T win. Both World Series trips ended with losses. While they had one Rookie of the Year, two other...

The Red Sox Suck. And I’m Fine With That.

I am old enough to remember seeing Yaz and Dewey play. To remember collapsing in a heap on the floor when the ball went through Buckner’s legs. To remember saying out loud, completely sober, that Dante Bichette would lead this team to the promised land. What I’m trying to say is that I’ve lived and died with this team a million times in my lifetime. Had my heart cut to ribbons...

Sox Team Batting Average Worst Since 1992

Many observers—including us—have focused on the serious deficiencies on the Red Sox pitching staff this year (both starters and bullpen). But, just as vexing is the woeful offensive production from a team that was expected to bash the ball this year. As's Gordon Edes points out, after 16 games, Boston's .230 team batting average is the worst (16 games into a season)...

Don Orsillo’s First Red Sox Game Was Pretty Memorable

Before the Sox started winning World Series, we fans clung tenaciously to what meager triumphs we were afforded: Pedro kicking Yankee arse in one game of the 1999 ALCS, a vitamin B-fueled Clemens striking out 20 Mariners, Nomar being better than Jeter (hey, we chanted it; it must have been true), the occasional weekend that Mo Vaughn wasn’t caught with a car full of strippers...

Sox 'Party' Like It's 1994—In Terms Of Losses

(AP Photo/Charles Krupa)Mo Vaughn, John Valentin and Mike Greenwell are not walking through that door. But their legacy is. For the first time since the 1994 season, the Red Sox are winless on a homestand of at least six games (they just lost six in a row). Continuing with the "Six" Theme, six of the first seven batters in Toronto's second inning reached base on Jon Lester yesterday...
