Comment on: John Farrell needs to be tougher on Red Sox players
Posted 06/17/2015 06:30:54 EDT
This needs to happen, just as Pete outlines it. ADA in the field most days is a ridiculous waste, we need Bradley in there. It's pretty clear JF doesn't like him tho, so unless and until he gets fired more »
Comment on: Bob Wilsonâs voice still resonates for Bruins fans
Posted 01/25/2015 04:51:25 EST
Oh, and jb, I remember that Seals game - that comeback - so clearly, after that trade. God, the Bruins were so great then. I have no doubt that Bob created a masterpiece that night, letting us know ab more »

Props and gratitude for these well-put retrospective memories of Wilson. I absolutely, and with more crystal clarity than I hear other voices of my past, hear Bob's voice resonantly in my head, saying more »

Terrible trade. Rubby or Webster will take off and blossom one of these years very soon. Miley is rubbish. What are they thinking? more »

This is an absolute giveaway. Makes no sense at all. When you are a seller of good "merchandise" at the trading deadline you're supposed to be getting a good return, in fact, you should be getting, if more »

You guys watch. Ben isn't going to sell. He'll try to sell the fanbase on winning/playoffs THIS year. You read it here first. more »
Comment on: John Farrell not close to giving up on Red Sox - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 06/23/2014 02:05:52 EDT
Pegnva, Farrell isn't lucky to my mind, but he did win a championship last year...that'll buy him exponentially more rope than the length of leash Valentine was on, as Bobby has won eff-all. more »

Me neither. The intangibles thing sounds laughingly like the last days of Jason Varitek, long after he was effective. To me he's the one to go. more »

JBJ played a lot of right last year in spring training, and impressed mightily there. Excellent suggestion, Cordeau

Comment on: Indiansâ Terry Francona over Red Soxâ John Farrell for American League Manager of Year a shocker - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/13/2013 04:43:28 EST
Just to pile on a bit, everyone is ignoring that in addition to the Tigers, the Indians also had to face another very good team this year 18 times..the Royals.
Posted 11/13/2013 04:40:58 EST
That would be the Royals, not the Astros. Big difference, this year.

We as Sox fans had a rare chance to experience close-up the managing styles of both the top two contenders for this award. For me, it's hands-down obvious that Farrell is actually the better manager, more »

This was an excellent column by Nick, really well rounded. I like that he compared Ben to Brian Sabean, because this team's chemistry feels a lot to me like that of the Giants that won those two Serie more »
Comment on: Red Sox win Game 5 head to Boston with 3-2 World Series lead - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/30/2013 03:59:05 EDT
"...any way Clay and Doubront could double team"....in a possible Game 7 that is. Throw Clay out there for 3-4 innings, then Felix bridges to Taz/Lester/Koji.
Posted 10/30/2013 03:56:25 EDT
Not a bad idea, Despry. Nobody has mentioned this, but if I were Farrell, I'd see if there's any way Clay and Doubront could double team the way they did in Game 4 instead of Peavy. The series has to more »

Rick, the ride for me started on April 1. The whole season has been fantastic, as I'm sure you'd agree. Can't wait to celebrate. GO SOXXXXXXX!!!!

What is it with the supposed best shortstops in baseball paving the way towards a world championship for the Sox? Iglesias waved us in to the Series by botching that double play grounder in Game 6 tha more »

One of the silliest teapot tempests in recent Globe Sports memory, and that's saying a lot.

Doubront has way more upside than Thorton from the left side, even if he hasn't been as spot on as he had been earlier. It's a no brainer, leave Thornton off.

Sorry, JP is not "elite" anymore, regardless of his elite past. His 4+ ERA since 2008 makes him the equivalent of a less-durable Dempster.
