I will miss you so much Salty. I just became more and more impressed with you as the months wore on, and what you did for this team, quietly picking up other teammates who were having a hard time, and more »

Not sure if the above comment is in response to mine, but I feel the need to comment. I will miss Salty. I do not think he got enough press as being one of the strongest character guys on the team. I more »

I will miss Salty if he leaves. He should get more credit for being one of the 'chemistry' or 'character' or whatnot guys. The only reason he doesn't is he wasn't just added to the team last year li more »

And by the way, our division was not all that impressive this year compared to years past -- Toronto and New York were miserable and Baltimore and Tampa were ok but beatable. And the Central had the more »

I agree with Dan here. Half of Farrell's success this year was due to his simply showing up. That was how bad Bobby V was. Any mediocre or halfway-competent manager, not to mention one who had great more »

One of your best pieces ever, Pete. Love the little insider nuggets and commentary. Thanks for all your work this year.

Chad, I really look forward to your columns every day. I'm really glad you're doing this!

Sox will have no champaign but you better believe we'll be having champagne, and lots of it!

Does anyone have the W-L stats for Sox first games of a road trip? I'd put money on the fact that it is significantly skewed in the direction of the L, compared with their overall road record.
Posted 09/19/2013 10:29:01 EDT
Drew has to come out of his slump against LHP sometime right? Why not last night?? I'm sure that's what Farrell was thinking.;-) OK total sarcasm there. Look, I like Drew. But come ON, man!

It seems like a pattern that when the Sox get on the board early but then waste prime scoring opportunities in the middle innings, letting the once wobbly starter right himself, more often than not we more »

Odd that Bard is on the 40-man, seems to me they could use his spot for Aceves if needed or someone else. Doubtful he'd get claimed right now or are Sox still grasping at straws with him?
Posted 08/26/2013 11:14:30 EDT
Awwww...no way. Red Sox never resign their own free agents. Why start now?
Posted 08/22/2013 04:11:54 EDT
Francona didn't do so well in 2011, sure. But he sure did a fine job for the 7 years prior to that. Wish he could have maintained it. Not sure firing him was the answer (and hiring Bobby V sure wasn more »

I'm not fully bought in. He's Terry Francona without the warmth. I think that warmth is a big part of what made Terry so successful. Farrell seems too robot-like for my tastes and always looks like more »
Posted 07/30/2013 03:17:14 EDT
Thanks, Pete, for clarifying that the Sox had little interest in him (presumably because of his expressed preference for the West Coast?) I would have assumed as a proven RH reliever for whom the sox more »

The whole double-switch argument: I normally like detailed strategic thinking. In this case, the decision reeks of over-analysis. I wonder if this is an Achilles heel for Farrell.
Posted 07/15/2013 10:41:52 EDT
What is the timing for being on waivers? I thought it was longer than just a few days...kinda surprised that he was put on waivers a few days ago and no one knew about it?
Posted 07/12/2013 02:33:49 EDT
I hear there are little league pitchers in the Oakland area demanding tryouts as well. (!)
Posted 07/12/2013 01:20:21 EDT
Aceves is not hurt per se. Was supposedly battling 'soreness' but Farrell said on at least two occasions that he is not hurt and was and still is available to pitch. That makes his being sent down a more »

And this was the guy that failed to win a starting job out of spring training in 2012 in favor of Bard.
Posted 07/02/2013 03:12:16 EDT
I think it was actually 4 taters!
Posted 07/02/2013 03:11:37 EDT
In the FWIW department, Workman got lit up on Sunday at Pawtucket.
Posted 07/02/2013 03:08:34 EDT
To two-sheds: yes, it's worked so far but as of late it looks like they are not gonna use him unless god forbid another starter goes down seeing as how they are keeping Webster in the rotation. Since more »
