If he is that unhappy with his contract and the pressure of being "the Man", he could retire.

About 50 years ago, during my first assignment in the USAF, it was learned that I loved baseball and knew the game, so I was asked if I wanted to be official scorer at Little League games on base. Wow more »

Miami has a good point; the Red Sox did not come remotely close to meeting MLB requirements. As for Miami raising ticket prices. Why not? They certainly stood a chance of selling out at a higher price more »

While I deplore the circumstances, I have long felt it was time to break up the Remy-Orsillo fun show and go with announcers whose primary goal is to broadcast the games. NESN has a responsibility in more »

Amphetamine was discovered before 1900 and the first pharmaceutical amphetamine was Benzidrine in 1933. Ball players have been using bennies for a long time. Even today, they get around the imposed re more »

I'd rather have Ellsbury.

I thought the Red Sox were now supposed to be committed to building from within? They strip their farm system for Stanton, then find that Pedroia doesn't bounce back from his thumb operation, Buchholz more »

It is strange that umpires know one "obscure" rule but not another. The batter before this platy. Beltran, was awarded first base for being hit by a pitch that he made absolutely no effort to avoid. R more »

I don't understand why Dempster was not immediately ejected. I also do not understand why the official scorer gave Pedroia a hit on an infield grounder where he was out by three steps if the shortstop more »

To thirtysomething--Given that Napoli is 21 for 115 (.183) with runners in scoring position, excluding bases loaded situations, he hasn't done a lot that counted in them.
Posted 08/06/2013 04:34:06 EDT
Napoli is 7 for 15 and 20 RBI with the bases loaded. If you take that away from his batting with RISP, he would be hitting .183 with 31 RBI in those situations. In other words, he ain't done anywhere more »

I was going to point out that Napoli left 6 runners on last night and Drew left three on. A timely hit, or two, from either of them and Lackey (3.33 runs per game support) gets the win.

Gee, I thought Workman was plenty promising as a starter (Game Scores of 65/52/64) and I think I prefer him to Dempster in that spot.

Quote: "Workman retired the first 18 batters in order. The only blemish was a walk to John Jaso in the fourth inning." It is very difficult to get a double play in a stretch of 18 batters retired in o more »

How can you retire the first 18 batters in order, yet walk a batter in the fourth inning?

"How many of you watched the Sox score 17 runs on Tuesday and thought they would probably score two on Wednesday? That's baseball for you." Prior to this season the Red Sox franchise has had 156 games more »

Ted Cox, who was called up by the Red Sox in 1977, probably remembers his first six at bats (7 PA) when he went single, walk, single, single, double on Spetember 18 and followed that with singles in h more »

Iglesias: 6 exbh to go with 3 singles.
Posted 03/15/2013 09:04:02 EDT
Iglesias has also had two stints in the Arizona Fall League, adding another 136 PA to his resume. His first one came in 2009 and he actually hit reasonably well: .275/.324/.420/.745. In his second swi more »

The penalty killing is great but perhaps they should spend some time practicing scoring while on the power play. The club has scored just 4 power-play goals (and one of them was an empty-netter) in 43 more »

Oh, boy, still more free publicity for Dan Shaughnessy.
