       In '64 watching Tony C. hit a home run in his first Fenway at bat. The other  was my son getting a foul ball of the bat of Jim Rice, with him later hitting an extra inning home run to win game.

       Will the fan base really support a team with 90-100 loses. I'm not exactly thrilled with the early returns of Sox youth movement. Iglesias, Larvarnway, Kalish, Gomez are not exactly major league re more »

       IMO the Sox decline can be traced back to the end of the Epstein years. Theo got lazy and when problems arose he just threw money at problems, regardless their fit on the team. Why trade for Agon w more »
