This Ain’t Your 2013 Red Sox

  After Sunday night’s come-from-behind win, it sure looked like the spirit of the 2013 Red Sox was back. The very next day, they rally back from six runs down, and you start making plans for October. The next thing you know, you’re rolling around on the ground gasping for breath and holding your nuts. It’s a feeling I’m afraid we’re going to have to get used to this...

Fenway Park has a 'Sleep Room' for players to take naps in?

It’s one of those things you’re not likely to see during your $17 tour of “America’s Most Beloved Ballpark”…the Boston Red Sox “sleep room”. That’s right, Fenway Park has a room dedicated to, you guessed it, sleeping. “It is nice,” catcher David Ross said late last season.  “With the travel schedule you have here and this market and all the Sunday night games...

Clay Buchholz gets shelled by the Orioles; what to make of early struggles

Bad outings are a part of life for every pitcher in the Major Leagues and as a result, overreacting to one of them is a big mistake. Of course, when it is a stand alone contest (i.e. Sunday Night Baseball, or Monday’s Patriots’ Day contest) then more of the baseball watching world tends to take note, rather than those outings that blend into a busy evening on the MLB schedule...

Is This the Turning Point for the 2014 Red Sox?

We had to wait almost 19 games, but we finally got to see a little of that 2013 magic in 2014. I’m talking about a tide-turning homerun from Jonny Gomes. A come-through, pinch-hit appearance by Mike Carp. A fired-up Dustin Pedroia getting the Fenway crowd amped. And a walk-off win that involved the tossing of at least a couple helmets. I don’t want to get too giddy here; I could...
