Good call on the Rising Tide MITA ... my favorite summer beer. Nearly cried when production stopped last fall.

I'm not terribly smitten with XB either, but he has gobs of raw talent (lacks discipline) and could bring a haul in return because of his power potential. Hey, doesn't Mookie Betts play SS too? Kid ca more »

Tell me which guy you like in any of these marquee pitching matchups, midseason or playoffs, and then argue to me that Lester was worth the contract he signed, indicating he's one of THE elite hurlers more »

Yo, I'm with Soxgirl on this one. I love my stats, but WAR is just one of those crazy metrics that has to be explained in detail to be understood. You watch baseball with your EYES, man. WAR only look more »

As long as you're not envisioning Ben Cherington in the Michael Corleone role, I'm ok with this analogy.

We could use some righthanded power in the lineup, but starting pitching is at a premium in MLB. Lester struggled in 2012, but he should rebound. Finn, weren't you the guy who has put him at No. 1 in more »

Maybe you've unintentionally hit on the answer, topshelf. We New Englanders treat baseball season as the precious thing that it truly is. It's just another sunny day in Florida, however.

Nobody finishes like the Patriots? Might want to ask the NY Giants about that. Or the Seahawks and Ravens, this year. I like the Pats' team this year, but I'm not punching their ticket to NOLA just ye more »

David, what would you like to accomplish this season?
"To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women."

Kudos (or is it condolences?) to anyone who actually finished reading this whole thing.

I understand the pessimism, but let's not overdo it. Haren, when healthy, has no-hitter stuff. I don't like the 8-figure annual contract rate for him, but a 2-year deal at around $16m (total) would be more »

I saw Xander B. play a few times up here in Portland and lemme tell ya, he's gonna look good in Fenway in a couple of years. I just don't think he's got the body for SS (he's tall and lanky, not super more »

Ross and Ortiz should be retained if possible. Maybe Loney. But the Sox have got to fill at least one of their glaring holes in LF, RF, SS, 1B ... that's nearly half the starting lineup ... through fr more »

What would you rather have happened? That the Sox brass embarrass Bobby V and stain his reputation with some mudslinging and a kick in the derrier on the way out the door? They choose their words care more »

LW, you're going to get no sympathy here today. And Mere is giving you the tough love you need. Either listen to her and follow her advice completely or leave everything behind and start anew, and not more »

Trades? Free agents? What this team needs is what the Rays, Giants and A's seem to have hit on: quality, young starting pitching. Seriously, how is it that those teams can just plug in a new rookie at more »

The overzealous media harping on sell-out streaks and bricks and plaques and ceremonies is getting tiresome. So what: the team had a bad year. Three years without the playoffs. I don't like it but boo more »

Pats had no timeouts. But I agree, I don't think BB had a lot of confidence in the unit after all the mistakes it made throughout the game. INT, penalties (especially on the last drive). Put this i more »

The only reason I've kept cable TV service the past several years is because of the Red Sox and NESN. But the channel has become one giant promotional vehicle for all of FSG's ventures and the program more »

Maybe not, but the photo above clearly shows that Henry is in the market for Just for Men. more »

My goodness, look at those lineups. March versus October. more »

Maybe they bring Koppen back now, as insurance. Connolly can play C and G. I bet Waters retires, he is 35.

Dial it down? Gronk wouldn't be the same player if he did. Fun read, Chad. Psyched for some football! GO PATS! NE 38 TN 13 more »

Smeared reputation? When very few would have even known about this, until Unilever files the lawsuit that then makes headlines? more »

Gronk and 'Nandez are the keys to the offense, no doubt. Good move locking them both up long term. I still worry that the Pats won't be able to run the ball effectively. Not terribly impressed with th more »
