    Ah, spring.  A most magical time.  The frozen ground has thawed.  The daylight yawns and stretches its arm over the shoulders of late evening.  The birds and bees are groggily waking up next to each other in a hangover daze, but most importantly…..   Baseball is back. Few things are more synergistically enjoyable than sitting in a folding bag chair by your favorite pond...

The four horsemen of the Chicago White Sox

The Chicago White Sox have had their share of stars over the years - Carlton Fisk, Frank Thomas, and Paul Konerko are just three of them.

The Red Sox still haven't retired Wade Boggs' number

Three years ago this month, I wrote a bit of a tirade that one of my favorite players ever, Wade Boggs, had not had his uniform retired by the Boston Red Sox. Three years later, the Red Sox have still not honored one of their great players in this way. The 100th Anniversary of Fenway Park was a great opportunity. It passed by. So what is the problem, Red Sox? Why is one of your very...

'Sporting News' misses out on Red Sox Iconic Moment

Ben WhiteheadContributing WriterWhen Sporting News released its MLB Iconic Moments piece, it struck me as odd when I came across the Boston Red Sox “moment.” Maybe it’s because I like to erase the 86-year curse from my memory and think of the Sox not as loveable losers, but as the team of the last decade. Three World Series titles will do that, I guess, but I know the history...

Throwback Thursday: Carlton Fisk’s Game 6 Heroics Remembered on Hall of Famer’s 66th Birthday (Videos)

Before the Red Sox snapped their 86-year World Series drought in 2004, the most endearing Fall Classic memory for Boston fans was that of Carlton Fisk waving the game-winning home run fair in Game 6 of the 1975 Series.  Thirty-eight years later, after the Sox had taken home two World Series titles, Fisk returned to Fenway Park for another Game 6.

A Look Back At Top Catchers In Red Sox History

by Larry Shiman, FN Board MemberWith the hot stove league yet to get warm, and no games to agonize over, it’s a good time to look back.

Game Six: What World Series History Will Be Made Tonight?

A classic World Series is usually defined as seven games, but it can’t be without a Game 6. As compelling as this World Series has been, if it ends tonight in Boston, it just won’t sizzle in our memories as it would if they played one more time. One way or another, it ends after Game 7. Gone is the sense of urgency, of desperation, of finality, of the team behind in the Series...
