The Curse of Choate? At some point tonight, Randy Choate- yes, THAT Randy Choate - will square off against Big Papi, and we will ponder the alternative reality that could have been

Brian Cashman likes to say the Mike Lowell trade was his career-worst blunder, and - yes sir - that's one tough booger to top. But if you think of the little ones that got away, the specialty tools that smarter teams like the Cardinals and Redsocks always seem to be stashing (David Roberts, Quintin Berry?), then it's time to ponder Randy Choate.For 13 years, Choate has been...

Andre Ethier Might Be Sox Trade Target For '14

 (Stephen Dunn / Getty Images)It may seem silly to think about 2014 when we are about to enjoy the pinnacle of the 2013 season, but reality is reality. Chances are the Red Sox will not re-sign Jacoby Ellsbury (unless he's MVP of the World Series and DuckboatNation demands it a' la Mike Lowell). So, one logical move would be to shift Shane Victorino to center and trade for...

Tigers Sport Three Former Red Sox On Roster

While the Detroit Tigers do not offer the same Red Sox Alumni cast as the Oakland A's would have, there are some former Carmine Hose to deal with in the upcoming ALCS. DH Victor Martinez spent an extremely productive year-and-a-half in Boston, hitting .313 with 28 HRs and 120 RBIS in just 183 games.

Mars needs women, and Chicago needs Grandyman

According to the Internet, the Chicago White Sox plan to take Curtis Granderson off our hands this winter, slamming the ledger on Brian "Happy Landings" Cashman's biggest Yankee deal.  (Not his worst, by the way: That belongs to the 1998 Mike Lowell giveaway.) The Grandy trade will still haunt us in the Shakespearean ghosts of Ian Kennedy, Austin Jackson and Phil Coke...

It’s a Fine, Fine Day… for the Red Sox to Clinch the AL East

The last time the Red Sox won the AL East was 2007. Back when Tina Cervasio was rocking the post-game interviews. And Eric Hinske was our Jonny Gomes. And Mike Lowell was THE MAN with a capital “THE MAN.” And Daisuke was still tricking us into thinking that the “gyro ball” was an actual thing. Tonight, we have the chance to do it again.

Hanley Being Hanley; Red Sox Lose In LA, 2-0

(Photo by Harry How/Getty Images)Call it "The Curse Of Mike Lowell". Hanley Ramirez clouted a 2-run HR in the fourth inning to account for all the scoring in a tough loss for the Red Sox at Chavez Ravine. John Lackey pitched a superb eight-inning complete game (other than Ramirez's HR) and still lost the game with literally no run support. The 'immortal' Ricky...
