John Henry Connection Brought Dave Dombrowski To Boston Red Sox

BOSTON — With respect to the storied history of the Red Sox, it wasn’t tradition that brought Dave Dombrowski to Boston. It wasn’t the allure of Fenway Park, or even the three World Series trophies that reside in its trophy case. No, Dombrowski’s decision to sign on as the Red Sox’s president of baseball operations primarily was the result of his longstanding relationship...

Trending Upward: Third Baseman

For the past 10 or so years, Major League Baseball has seen a downturn in what used to be a premier position: third base. Gone are the legends like Hall of Famers Brooks Robinson and Mike Schmidt, and even mainstays like Scott Rolen, Vinny Castilla and Mike Lowell have faded into retirement. Yet, not many third baseman have come up to be impact hitters on their teams in recent years...

Larry Lucchino to Step Down As Red Sox CEO

Thanks to The Boston Herald (the lone newspaper in town not in the hip pocket of John Henry) we learn that Larry Lucchino will leave his post as President and CEO of the Red Sox at the end of this year. Lucchino's tenure has been a stormy and—at times—controversial one. He was widely perceived to be the Darth Vader to Theo Epstein's Luke Skywalker—an edgy relationship that...

Things I’ve Said Before Red Sox Spring Trainings: A Brief History of Delusion

I’m the first to admit that days buried under piles of winter snow can make a man crazy. As evidence, I’ll submit some of the spring training prognostications I’ve made over the last 25 years or so. While at first glance they may look like the ramblings of a guy who’s taken leave of his senses, I prefer to think of them as proof that hopes springs pretty ******* eternal...

Miguel Andujar v. the Yankees' woeful, rancid, horrible record of developing thirdbasemen

The other day, while drinking beer, I gave Alphonso my annual unvarnished, x-rated and five-dimensional rundown of the Yankee farm system. You don't need to hear it - basically because it's just me, gurgling out of my ass. Truth is, I wouldn't know a future star from the next Lenn Sakata. I just read the blogs, which are mostly mirrors reflecting mirrors. Only one person knows.....

Dream Job: Acquired!

I’ve been sitting on some pretty big news for a while now. About two weeks ago, I went to Secaucus, New Jersey for a job interview at MLB Network – and I was offered the job! I couldn’t be more excited to start – this is everything I worked for in graduate school, and everyone I met when I was down there as extremely friendly and welcoming. Perhaps the most exciting part...

Mike Lowell: Jon Lester Will Seek Comfortable Situation In Free Agency

Jon Lester’s comments last winter about potentially accepting a hometown discount to remain with the Boston Red Sox were refreshing. It’s rare that a professional athlete is willing to forgo a bigger payday in favor of other factors. Lester never signed the team-friendly contract many anticipated, causing the Red Sox to eventually trade the pitcher to the Oakland Athletics before...
