Boston Red Sox must continue to experiment

With the Boston Red Sox posting more than three runs just once in the past ten games, it is clear that their two extra inning wins did not jump start the offense like they would have wanted. Many players are not playing anywhere near where they should be and with the starting pitching blowing up against the Mariners, there’s no way the Sox are going to win a slugfest. Brock Holt...

Sox Bats: Coming Soon To a Milk Carton Near You

  Remember when the Red Sox used to score runs? Those sure were some good times. And they seem to be gone for good. The Sox have scored three runs or less in ten of the last eleven games.

Stephen Drew: Streak Killer

  My history dislike for the Drew family goes way back, it has roots. I didn’t think they should have paid JD 14 mil a year, and he proved me right by being soft, injury-prone and less than inspiring. He was the anti-Trot-Nixon. Then, the Sox went and signed brother Stephen. The kid played good defense at short, but he was forgettable with a bat in his hand. When things started...
