Red Sox Collect 13 Hits; Lose To Astros, 3-2

(AP Photo/Pat Sullivan)ConstipationNation has returned. After collecting thirteen hits, the Red Sox walked off the Minute Maid Park diamond 3-2 losers. The two plays that best defined the game were double-plays: hit into by David Ortiz with the bases-loaded and Dustin Pedroia (to end the game) with two on. Also, in the 8th inning a weird attempted force play resulted in an failed...

Rookie Resurgence Continues, Red Sox Win, 8-3

(AP Photo/Pat Sullivan)This trend could get habit-forming. Another Red Sox rookie took charge last night and led Boston to a convincing 8-3 victory over the new-look Houston Astros.

Houston Astros’ Recipe For Success In 2014

Scott Feldman – Photo Credit: Pat Sullivan Abysmal. That’s the one word that sums up the Houston Astros 2013 campaign. Losing 111 games and ending the 2013 season on a 15-game losing streak isn’t going to attract too many casual Astros fans to the stands. But there is a recipe for success in Houston for this 2014 season, and I’m here to tell you exactly what that recipe is...

Spring Training Ejections: More Common Than You’d Think (I Thought “Never”)

(Image: Pat Sullivan/AP) On Sunday, the Brewers lost in disappointing fashion when the Diamondback scored three runs in the bottom of the ninth at Salt River Fields.  It was a tough loss, but it’s hard to get too frustrated when a game doesn’t go your way in spring training…or is it?  Manager Ron Roenicke was frustrated enough to get his damn self ejected.  Roenicke...

Obliterated: Rockets 109, Celtics 85

(AP Photo/Pat Sullivan)Well, this one got ugly real early and never got prettier.Remember when we said that young teams, like the 2013-14 Celtics, will lose some games this season? There will be games like these when the team lacks the effort, and the lack of a consistent scoring punch will hurt more often than it won’t. The C’s shot 32% from the field tonight, with Avery Bradley...
