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. I'm anti-idiocy. Pro pitcher Bill Lee...minus the drugs. ...and I NEVER show ALL my cards.

    Well Bogey, getting back to our horse discussion  , a good jockey will have his horse in a position to win in the stretch. Then it's up to the horse.   I'd say neither are cutting it so far this year. more »

    Updated numbers:


    RedSox are 7-1 when scoring in the first inning.

    14-23 when not.


    Never thought the Twins would be ahead of the Tigers after the season's 1/4 mark.

    Then perhaps Henry should demote Betts to fill the Pawtucket stands, which only have a seating capacity of what, 5 thousand? Minor leagues are for minors. I was a real math wiz in grade school. additi more »

    Yes, the game constantly evolves. I think the RedSox FO is well aware of the expanding strike zone, but after so much success with predicating patience, it'll be hard to alter philosophies at this poi more »
