I'm with tooner on this; the Sox might be a better hitting ball club than Texas at this point. This is NOT the Texas of the recent past, but their pitching has been excellent.

Thanks for making the correction.

I've been watching this young woman run since she was a high school junior, and she's amazing. Think it would be possible to get her name right and spell it as Shalane instead of Shane? (Probably not more »

Both catchers in the lineup on opening day? Isn't that a risky way to start the season? They'll come up with a better alternative, or perhaps one that doesn't smack of desperation to start the seaso more »

I get easily irritated when people get angry at "the media" or "the press", but when I look at the questions that were posed to Belichick - and the emphasis on his long pauses before answering - all I more »

Sorry - "explanation"

Wow. I'm amazed at the kind of mean-spirited comments that are directed at Pete Abraham during SPRING TRAINING games. I absolutely understand the desire for timely updates during the regular season ( more »
Comment on: Sox waiting for MRI results on Ortiz - Extra Bases - Red Sox blog
Posted 03/09/2013 06:54:59 EST
Wasn't something included in his contract about this considering that he was "injured" when they signed him to a two year deal? Obviously, it had to be a concern given last year's incredibly slow (no more »

Pete, Gordon Edes wrote that Nava is out of options. You have him with options remaining. I think that you're right, but how certain are you about Nava's options? (I'm really hoping that you're ri more »

Aceves showed up in great shape and that shouldn't be overlooked. I'd rather figure out a way to deal with a strange talented player who shows up in shape than one with talent who can't show up in pr more »
Comment on: The wonderful world of Alfredo Aceves - Extra Bases - Red Sox blog
Posted 02/15/2013 10:19:21 EST
Count me among those who hopes Aceves stays with Boston. He's quirky, but I love this guy! And I always believe that he cares about being good at what he does.
Comment on: A different Drew joins the Red Sox - Extra Bases - Red Sox blog

Although I find the wording awkward, I believe the intent was to say that, despite the fact that they are brothers, they are different. Stephen Drew isn't JD Drew.

Honestly, I forgot about the fences coming in at SAFECO, but the park still isn't Fenway.
Posted 02/09/2013 11:48:47 EST
I would guess that Saunders was willing to sign for 1 year in Seattle because of the dimensions and reputation of that park as a pitcher's park, and Fenway does not enjoy - nor deserve - that reputati more »

During the Patriots season, something occurred to me; we seem to be OK with John Lackey's exasperated behavior and gestures that seem to show up his teammates...as long as that behavior comes from Tom more »
Comment on: Could Mike Carp be a fit for the Red Sox? - Extra Bases - Red Sox blog
Posted 01/16/2013 09:30:18 EST
Colvin would make more sense than someone like Carp, or than Napoli? The other day, I thought you were suggesting that Colvin should be the target to play 1B for the Sox instead of Napoli or someone more »

I have a feeling that one of the reasons that the Red Sox, Yankees, and some other big market teams are often identified on limited no-trade-clauses is because that gives the player financial leverage more »
Comment on: Red Sox could lose players in Rule 5 Draft - Extra Bases - Red Sox blog
Posted 12/06/2012 10:35:27 EST
This might be a ridiculous question, but has a team ever used a rule 5 draft pick for one of the players in the organization it doesn't want to lose but didn't protect by adding to the 40 man roster? more »
