That was pretty awful. It's not the Boston stuff that bothers me, though. I actually know families with inconsistency in the accents, that's not a big deal. I also really like a couple of the actors i more »

Drew D's ignorance is showing. The fielding percentage remark is what really gets me. For those uninitiated, he's completely misunderstanding how it works, which is why he doesn't seem to grasp why it more »

This was actually out there when it happened. Ortiz legally can't get access to what he tested for because it's a court sealed document. It was actually a massive breach of the law for whoever leaked more »

There's no such thing as a "reliable source" when it comes to statistical projections. It's all essentially guesswork when it comes down to that and Fangraphs isn't shy about that fact. On top of that more »

Or Koji's High Five attack on Shane Victorino? Or Daniel Nava and Mike Carp jumping for joy in the dugout? This year's Sox team was one of the most gifable ever, yet we get the A-Rod plunking which wa more »

"Yeah - the slummy parts. You don't see this happen in Beacon Hill, Back Bay, Bay Village, the good parts of the south end or the good parts of Cambridge." I've seen it in Beacon Hill, Back Bay and p more »

"The state has a high concentration of industries that rely on such funding, such as defense, health care, and scientific research." Reading is fundamental. Consider actually reading to the end before more »

There's one component you're missing here: Presumably, we're talking about the big billboard outside of Kenmore Square? If so, it's not just the Pike that's looking at this, nor do I assume that's the more »

They're quadrupling one fine and upping the other by something like 400%. And this is on top of federal animal cruelty laws that can involve jail time. Sure, I'm for stiff, stiff penalties, but they'd more »

Holy crap! I agree with a Republican bill!

Person of Interest deserves notation. Somehow it's ratings are always good, but I don't personally know anyone else who watches it except my wife and I. One of the best shows on network TV right now. more »

Pretty much every government service listed in this article has been around since before anyone here was born.

You do not like them. So you say. Try Them! Try them! And you may.

Lost in all of this is the all important detail that, last night, the Sox mathematically eliminated the Yankees from the divisional race. While yeah, it was a foregone conclusion, the supersticious am more »

"Two Yanks just waltzed to 2nd base in the 9th last night and there was no reason Webster did not hold them on or tell Napoli to get the heck onto the bag." It was 9-1. How is it that you've never hea more »

Let's not pretend that the Sox haven't had their issues, the difference is that they've overcome them. We're on closer number four of the season (Hanrahan and Bailey and lest we forget that Tazawa was more »

More fun in retrospect: B-R's best overall hitter signing? Hamilton. Worst? Victorino.
ESPN shook out the same.

Worst signing of the offseason, everybody. Keith Law's been eating crow on that one.

"Will be intersting to see that play out in Court"
This will never see court. It will almost certainly be settled out of court.

@brendilon, a motivated thief will steal just about anything. I once had my car broken into out in Fitchburg and the thief took the front face of my CD deck (Just the faceplate, they left the unit its more »

Ooooor, Menino is sick of the giant hole in the ground that's been sitting there in DTX for the better part of six or so years now. While it made sense for Menino to stand fast on the previous ownersh more »

No, there is not. We saw him bleed to death and then we saw his body, dead, in Walter's trunk. He's gone. And what makes this one more uncomfortable than any of the other myriad lies Walter has told J more »

The takeaway here is that bicycle thieves may or may not be dumber than geese.

I remain unconvinced that anyone apt to be fooled by what (As noted above) essentially amounts to a scarecrow is mentally capable of reading this article to begin with.
