Sox 99 – Toward Postseason

The Red Sox made a big leap toward the postseason by taking three from the Yankees in the Stadium behind solid pitching and strong hitting. It was Boston’s first sweep in the Big Apple in 15 years, and started with perhaps Pedro Martinez’ best of many great performances. On September 10 he tossed a one-hitter in a 3-1 win, walking none and fanning a career-high 17. Pedey fanned...

Remember when a Redsock-Yankees series actually involved two power teams?

Yesterday, Mustang and I were chewing the ol' lard, jawboning about those 16-year-old, barefoot Latino boys who Hal Steinbrenner next week will turn into future Wall Street one-percenters. (Hopefully, the Yankees measured the ears, so we can know how big they'll get.) Those kids never saw Tino Martinez play first base for the Yankees. They were six years old when the Curse...

Fill in the Blank Day at the Stadium

Sports media could not help but repeat and rehash how the Pirates had not won in the Bronx since 1960, and their last trip there was in 2007, the last year of the Torre era.  Case in point: always looking to the past. What no one seemed to care to mention was that Gerrit Cole won in the Bronx.  Had things gone differently and the Yankees signed him in 2008 when they drafted him...

Tino Martinez Shifts Blame To Players When Explaining His Resignation

  Now, hear him out for a second this is interesting. When news first broke that Tino Martinez had allegedly physically and verbally abused players, I must admit I was skeptical. Given the Marlins appalling record alone, one can kinda understand why Martinez would be ticked off–doesn’t at all excuse any type of abuse though. But is this a case of abuse or just a bunch of prima...
