About Me: I'm roughly about 112 years old, depending on my mood at the time in question.
I live in the rain state...which explains my winter moods.
Pro pitcher Bill Lee...minus the drugs.
...and I NEVER show ALL my cards.

For those of you who might have missed this gem - and wish to find a temporary reprieve from the frustration of this season...

For the sake of a discussion, and this isn't meant to dismiss 2015, but let's look at the looming possibility that Papi/Napoli/Vic won't be returning after this season. Hard to think the FO will cut t more »

To draw comparisons to full seasons - large sample sizes: The 2014 RedSox went 17-12 when leading after the first inning. 54-79 when they didn't. And get this: They were 11-31 when trailing after one more »

I agree with Pumpsie in that ALL the games count. I don't like throwing anything out of the equation. Stats generally reflect averages. So it must be understood that ERA stands for an AVERAGE of earne more »

Getting back to the initial question, I wuz gonna say Ray and Bob Culp.

When the wheels start coming off, you no longer think about the little things that are so important. You start thinking about survival. And IMO, the RedSox are playing 'not to lose'. That means they a more »

RedSox are now 8-2 when scoring in the first inning. They are 17-29 when they don't. They are 17-7 when taking an early lead, regardless of the inning. They are 8-24 when they don't. That tells me the more »

Well, it took Farrell til the 1st week of June, but he finally is committed to mixing/matching the line-up. And I think it'll provide better results. Pedey is shining as a lead-off hitter. Holt hittin more »
