Trade Xander Bogearts-No Way

The Globe’s Nick Cafardo recently said on a Red Sox pregame show that he might trade Xander Bogearts for a young pitcher. If I’m not mistaken, he mentioned the Mets’ Matt Harvey, who was their starter the same night. I don’t agree. There are several reasons for this. Bogearts has maintained his slashes, which are now .313/.343/.405. He has 13 rbi’s in the month of...

If you thought Nomar Garciaparra’s pre-at-bat ritual was complicated, then wait until you get a load of this high school baseball player from Japan.

Addressing the first base position was an area the Toronto Blue Jays wanted to focus on during the 2013 draft. They did just that when they selected L.B.

Picked in the 14th round; after a senior season at the University of South Carolina that...

Nomar Garciaparra, What Could Have Been?

Let’s play some word association.  What is the first thing you think of when you hear the name Nomar Garciaparra?  For me, it would have to be his unique batting nuances; the obsessive adjusting of the batting gloves, the toe tapping in the batter’s box, and the rotation of the bat as he does his toe tapping.  Those are his trademarks, his calling cards, and his version of...
