A better analysis than you ever hear on sports radio!

Give Tito and Farrell the choice between a World Series ring or a manager of the year award, and neither would hesitate a millisecond.

I thought we finally killed and buried the failed strategy of paying big bucks for aging free agent superstars in decline.

Most glaring omission? Cy Young -- the very definition of pitching excellence.

Suffering from withdrawal symptoms with the season over. No games to watch; fewer articles to read. (I know -- get a life!) Hey, can anyone recommend any good essays on the MLB postseason? Something t more »

Determining which championship team is "most special" is highly subjective. For old-timers who endured decades of futility, nothing will ever top 2004--and justifiably so. That said, the '04 Sox were more »

Seminal moments happen on the field, not in the dugout. The 3-run blast, the obstruction, the pickoff, those are the events that will be remembered long after Papi's pep talk is forgotten.

It was likely an unintentional diss by Cafardo, but it feels odd to be writing Saltalamacchia off after all his contributions this year. If Salty does depart via free agency, I hope he gets one more c more »

"... the Big Texan was towing the mound out of the bullpen ..." Pitchers have to haul their own mounds out to the diamond in St. Louis?! Must have been quite a sight. Or maybe he was "toeing" the moun more »

As one who has toiled in journalism, I think the writer can almost be excused. In the rush to capture one's thoughts, this type of error is fairly common: "their" instead of "they're"; "it's" instead more »

Hey, I spend my hard-earned paycheck at the ballyard and no elitist mofo is gonna tell me what I can sing. Not only should we keep Caroline, we should get those hotties Britney and Miley into the mix. more »

Worst headline ever? Is this indicative of the dumbing down of journalism? Imagine the shocked Globe reader, gob-smacked to learn that one team will win the ALCS and the other -- "Can you believe it?! more »

I just took a peek at the comment board at the Detroit Free Press (www.freep.com), where the Motown fans are coming down hard on their oversized first baseman. Their rips are so merciless, they make S more »

Seen in the loo: "Some people see the glass half-empty. Some people see the glass half-full. I see the glass and say, 'Are you gonna drink that?'"

Pretty broad statements there, Gordo. "America" is not watching? "No one" cares? You can speak for yourself, perhaps your immediate family (assuming people willing to reside in the same abode), and ma more »

Pull down the freakin' headline already! It's inane, it doesn't match the contents of the article, and it makes the Globe sports department look like a bunch of buffoons.

I'm with the Doc on this one. I distinctly remember Bard lobbying hard to become a starter and encountering resistance from Francona and others. To state that "Bardâs most recent struggles began wit more »

CloudyKnight: It is, of course, troll-ish to correct the grammar of another commentator. But now that the taboo has been breached -- you're right. The magic number thing is coincidence, not irony. On more »

Beautiful and insightful tribute -- poetry in its own right.

Since weâre critiquing the compositional skills of other posters, it should be pointed out that interrogative sentences are properly ended with a question mark, not a period.

Man, I don't know how the old bandwagon can take all the wear and tear of people jumping on and off. 5-2 is nothing but a blip on the radar. When it gets to 50-20, we might genuinely have something to more »

Glad to see those bigoted neo-fascists get their comeuppance. D&C: diced and chopped. Sayonara, boys!

Here's the line from the article that caught my eye: "On average, each trip costs the state $40 ..." You've got to be kidding me! Giving all the ride users cab vouchers would be cheaper than that. Or more »

A touch screen for a laptop or desktop setup is a fatally flawed concept. How long will it take consumers to tire -- mentally and physically -- of reaching across the keyboard to stroke the screen? Ma more »

Wow. Now we know where CHB got his penchant for ladling his column full of cultural references!
