2013 Red Sox: Seems like old times again

The Guru Contributing Writer Yogi Berra famously said, “It’s like déjà vu, all over again.” This 2013 Boston Red Sox team seems to have a lot of 2004 in them. Rather than a group of so-called “idiots”, it’s a bunch of Bunyanesque ballplayers providing the walk-off magic. Time to fear the beard. Player wise only one Red Sock remains from that 2004 curse killing World...

Game 112: Diamondbacks at Red Sox - Peavy makes Red Sox debut tonight

Ben Whitehead Contributing Writer The Boston Red Sox could not add a 12th walk-off win to their resume, falling in the series opener to the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-6 at Fenway Park. Walk-off city will have to wait for another day. Maybe today, who knows? However, if Jake Peavy has anything to do with the outcome, he’d like to not see the Sox have to win in their final at-bat....
