Stepped into the kitchento get a drink w/ Papi coming up. Came back to hear the announcer say " the game is tied 5-5". Missed the GS, darn it! Caught the walk-off though. More Red Sox October "magic". more »

Beckett's not pitching over his head. He's just finally healthy for the first time in a season and a half. ALSO, When is the last time you recall Beckett actully "beaned" someone? He's not a head hunt more »

Posted 07/22/2009 10:59:01 EDT
These Sox hitters need to start attacking the ball. To heck with this "wait 'em out"philosophy. Patience may be a virtue but, too much patience is a killer. It results in batters constantly being in a more »

Madagan doesn't seem to be doing much to get Papi on track. Bring in an outsider like Mike Easler to help straighten Papi out. He's had success with other hitters. BTW, what ever happened to Jackson? more »

vliet22,You must have inside info on 'roid users. Do you have "the list' in your possession? To say that is struggling because he "stopped using" is pure speculation. Where's the proof? more »

All Sox fans: Next time Papi comes to the plate, give him a big standing O to let him know your with him. At this point, I think his problem has become mental and your show of support might just be en more »
