    I have been saying this since the middle of the scene; and now I'm ready to put Vazquez as the No. 2 most important member of this squad.

    I'm tempted to pick this apart, but it would take too long. Napoli should be gone, Betts should be retained; no pitcher his equal. Bradley too "expensive" to be used for late inning defense and pinch more »

    Middle of last year, I'm wondering why the Sox have given this guy another shot as a starting pitcher; the next thing I know, he's been traded for a not-very-good joirneyman. Were there hidden reasons more »

    KC stole 3 bases, last night, on Lester. One caught was stupid base running, not because Lester held him on. To me, he was "exposed", and his value dropped about 20%. Why other teams haven't done this more »
