    The Sox are swinging incredibly hot bats right now, but tonight they're facing a pitcher that has owned them at his home park. Since '08, James Shields has a 4-1 record in 5 starts vs. the Red Sox at more »

    Tommy Hottovy has been around the Red Sox organization since before I began paying attention to prospects, and I did that quite a few years ago. I didn't need to gain too much familiarity with the min more »

    These Indians are a confident and overperforming team, but, despite his great overall numbers, Justin Masterson appears to be the same guy he always was. When he pitched with the Sox, his sole failing more »

    Asdrubal Cabrera, in his first 4 years in the major leagues, hit one home run every 78.6 at-bats. This year, he's popping one out every 20.2 at-bats. Brady Anderson, anyone? Looks like Cleveland has d more »

    We "sun-starved stat geeks" prefer "fans who actually think about what the numbers mean", Mr. Boyfriend. I know that phrasing is a bit awkward and more difficult to spell, but it's considerably more a more »

    If CHB cannot comprehend why Patriot fans might want to see a Patriots game, regardless of the game's import in the postseason, I can't explain it to him. If he were a sports fan, he wouldn't be so co more »

    As far as I'm concerned, the warning shots across Papelbon's bow are among the most encouraging events in an already encouraging off-season. I'd been concerned that Theo's head was in the sand about " more »

    If you remember, the Sox missed Jason Bay's impact in the middle of the order for a good chunk of last season, too. His mid-season slump wasn't as deep as David Ortiz's April-May slide, but it was jus more »

    None of the above. The lineup is a streaky one, and they fell into a poorly timed collective slump. The starting pitching was certainly good enough to have won each game, but you can't win if you can' more »

    Get with the program, Pete. Dave Wallace hasn't been the Red Sox pitching coach since 2006. I know you just got back from covering the Yankees and all, but seriously, isn't it time you started learnin more »

    It might surprise a lot of people to know that Brian Anderson's line since he came to the Red Sox in the Kotsay deal is .294/.381/.647. It's a tiny sample, but it should be enough to make us consider more »

    Geez, Bob, pull out the calculator every now and then, willya? A WHIP of 2.20 does, indeed, translate to more than 18 baserunners per 9 innings. It also translates to more than 17, more than 10, and m more »

    Leave it to Cafardo to ignore the most telling stat for Smoltz this season (numbers aren't really your thing, are they, Nick? Or analysis. That's not your thing either.): Smoltz vs. right-handed batte more »
