About Me: Became a huge Sox fan after moving to Portland, Maine in 1970 and following the trade of my boyhood idol, Tommy Harper to the Red Sox. Tears of heartbreak turned to tears of joy. Go Sox!

    UR right. It's too early. No team in history has won a division with the league's highest ERA. I do agree with you when you mentioned (on another thread) that Farrell was slow in removing Porcello. Th more »

    Would like to see Swihart draw a walk.

    As I said weeks ago, Vic should have been in extended ST'ing until he is ready. To have him rehab during games that count is not winning baseball decisions.
