Comment on: Red Sox have a roster crunch coming - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 04/16/2014 02:36:31 EDT
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.
Comment on: Sox should find out what they have in Sizemore, but there's no need to get down on Bradley - Touching All the Bases - Boston.com

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

Bill Walton 1986. Here it comes. What a steal!
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.
Comment on: Voters wrong in naming Terry Francona American League Manager of the Year, not John Farrell - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/13/2013 04:32:18 EST
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 »
Comment on: Cherington made all the right moves - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/31/2013 03:49:58 EDT
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!!!!
Comment on: Donât write off the Red Sox - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/28/2013 02:14:23 EDT
I wept at the end of the game, watching the announcer-free highlights roll (check out the ESPN feed if you don't like Buck and McCarver; it's better, if not Orsillo and Eck)....just SO PROUD OF THESE more »
Comment on: Cardinals let Game 1 slip away early - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/24/2013 06:20:04 EDT
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 »
Comment on: September Interleague games are just a bad idea - Boston Sports Blog - Boston.com

One of the silliest teapot tempests in recent Globe Sports memory, and that's saying a lot.
Comment on: Projecting the Red Sox playoff roster - Extra Bases - Red Sox blog
Posted 09/19/2013 06:35:00 EDT
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.
Comment on: 2013 Red Sox most endearing edition since 1967 Impossible Dreamers - Sports - The Boston Globe

Nice article, Dan, nice ending too that made me laugh. God I loved hearing Ned say that.
Comment on: Vin Scully, the best broadcaster of all time - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 08/26/2013 03:41:03 EDT
I had a chance to listen to Scully on Friday night for the 2-0 loss. At first I wasn't sure who I was listening to, but it eventually dawned on me, not having heard him call a game before. It was an i more »
Comment on: Analysis: Sox needed Peavy to match Rays - Extra Bases - Red Sox blog
Posted 07/31/2013 02:57:52 EDT
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.
Posted 07/31/2013 02:54:30 EDT
Instead of Iggy and Drew we'll have Middlebrooks and Holt. Ugh.
Posted 07/31/2013 01:52:41 EDT
I don't like this trade. Peavy is always on the DL. We get a part-time sometimes decent pitcher...not elite...for an up and coming defensive whiz. I have to agree with vohanep

Comment on: Jose Iglesias earns larger role with Red Sox - Boston.com
Posted 06/25/2013 07:22:13 EDT
I dunno rwl, I don't think the Sox march to Boras's beat. They don't owe him any allegiance. Right now Drew is actually a better hitter than WM. It might be as simple as that. They want Will to play e more »

Funny how there were bomb squad drills yesterday outside the library, bomb squad drills on 7/7 in London, and the same on 9/11. All before the events happened. "Funny".

That's the thing....Dan CAN write, and he makes me chuckle even when I don't agree with him. If anyone thinks he is jinxing the Sox or something, c'mon, who here really hasn't had the thought that we more »
