About Me: "Walt Whitman once said, 'I see great things in baseball. It's our game, the American game. It will repair our losses and be a blessing to us.' You could look it up." - Bull Durham, 1988

Such a bad idea. The game is the lesser for it.

Happy Holidays, Peter. Great job, as usual.

A a kid, Mr. Boras must have many imaginary friends. Who knew that they would return as imagnary ball clubs pursuing his clients?

I think this was MLB cashing Tito's chit. Tito was hosed - twice - for MOTY and this was just catch-up. Sure Farrell deserved it, but - yeah -Tito needed props and those Toronto guys have long memorie more »

Nice for John Farrell, no grudges, but Tito was hosed more than once on MOTY - like 2004 - and I would not be disappointed if he got it this time around. He did a nice job in Cleveland. Just saying.

Joe West's close calls at the plate - about 50% accurate - had both teams flummoxed. Sox pitching held a potent Tiger's lineup to just one run, but Sox let themselves get thrown. Game should have ha more »

"Lester is the 11th pitcher in Red Sox history to record 100 victories, and just the third left-hander." The other two being Lefty Grove and Mel Parnell. Surprised that Bruce Hurst and Bill Lee won f more »

Yeah, Carl. This series is just one huge grudge match staged for your benefit. Thanks for volunteering to give back all that money to the Red Sox because you never did anything to deserve it. Say what more »

Quality teams will take a loss like this and shake it off, get back to the park in a good mood and get to work on a new winning streak. This is a test of talent, of course, but also a test of characte more »

I am one of the few who is not calling for the return of Papelbon. Just saying. I can do without the manufactured drama in a closer.

Major gaffe here for the medical staff, which initially said it was a strain - presumably after looking at the MRI. Now Dr. Andrews looks at the MRI and sees a tear. Hmm. More issues with the med sta more »

No worries. Yankees lost to Oakland 2-0. Sox got a break.

I meant to say that I had few problems with Customs. Getting from one point to another in Pearson can be tiresome, especially when you get to a stretch of terminal where you need to go down an escala more »

Which airport? I never had a problem at Pearson - always moved through it fairly quickly. Are you flying out of Billy Bishop? Just curious.

Sounds to me like the Blue Jays' broadcasters are trying to explain away the fact that their team sucks so far this year. And they aren't doing a very good job of it. "Hey, let's blame this Buchholz more »

Agreed. Salty has turned into a multi-year project. Tek would have known this. Very concerned.

Julian - I may not be the first to write this, but the Red Sox have not won their first four series. They lost the first series at Fenway to the Orioles, one game to two.

Seems to me that Boggs and the Red Sox are engaged in a game of chicken.

These early travails are a test of character as well as talent. He seems to be doing well on both counts. As for his anemic hitting, he seems to be taking the long view and not panicking. If ther more »

O's are deceptively dangerous and trash talkers to boot.
I am curious to see how these new Sox match up against them. The trash talk can be distracting.

Give that lager beer a chance. It has that straight from the barrel taste In bottle, can, on tap it's great 'Cause Gansett's got the flavor. Narragansett flavor! And here is an ad from Mike Nichols more »

All the more reason to give JBJ a shot.
