Comment on: Rays' win over Red Sox in Game 3 comes with plenty of what-ifs for visitors - Touching All the Bases - Boston.com
Posted 10/08/2013 12:15:09 EDT
I'm really tired of this "relax...it's only one game" nonsense. It's the playoffs when every game matters and and 1 game does count regardless of your philosophy. If the Sox lose the next 2 what then? more »
Comment on: TBS names announcers for Red Sox series - Extra Bases - Red Sox blog
Posted 09/30/2013 05:19:49 EDT
I am sure Orsillo and Eck would rather call the Sox games. I know most of, if not all Sox fans would prefer these guys calling the game as well.
What the heck is TBS thinking?
Comment on: Ask Nick: Who makes playoff roster? - Extra Bases - Red Sox blog
Posted 09/06/2013 10:33:11 EDT
No way they add Thornton to the playoff roster. He hasn't looked too impressive at all since he's been on the Sox. Britton is better than he is and Morales hasn't returned to form yet either. Breslow, more »
Comment on: Red Sox actually having a productive trip - Extra Bases - Red Sox blog
Posted 08/12/2013 09:43:44 EDT
If they don't move Middlebrooks over to 1st, I think that a platoon of Nava and Carp can do an adequate job plus they can play the OF as well.

Posted 06/21/2013 09:36:11 EDT
@ soaktherich... Are you serious in saying it's just 1 game in June? So tired of hearing these supposed Sox fans chiming that "it's only 1 game in a long season...blah blah blah, get over it" Every wi more »

What else is new with Nick's Mailbag ? Never anything real insightful to add to anyones questions. It's not even worth reading most of the time. Amalie Benjamin added more to the mailbag when she did more »
Comment on: How Jerry Remy ended up with Red Sox - Touching All the Bases - Boston.com
Posted 05/28/2013 08:59:56 EDT
Yep...he was real classy the day my 10 year old son approached him one time after a game for an autograph a few years ago with nobody else around but the 3 of us and just blew by my son on the way to more »

I think Napoli should be nicknamed "The Sledgehammer" !!! IMHO

I have won the opportunity to buy tix for the Yankees twice in this ripoff lottery deal and it is bogus. You are lucky to find 2 seats together, let alone 4 seats together way out in the upper bleache more »
Comment on: A few alternative Red Sox candidates - Extra Bases - Red Sox blog
Posted 10/05/2012 06:56:19 EDT
I think Tony Pena would make a great choice as well as Dave Martinez and Billy Mueller. I would be happy with either one of them over John Farrell. Waiting to see if the Halos can Mike Scioscia. He co more »
Comment on: Cherington gets to put his stamp on Red Sox - Red Sox - Boston.com
Posted 08/26/2012 06:07:21 EDT
No way should the Sox even consider way over paying Cody Ross 27 million over 3 years. Totally ridiculous to pay him that with his defensive liabilities. 4-5 million a year is more in line with what h more »

Enough with all the whining about Youk...it was time for him to move on !!! Just call up Iglesias and move Aviles to 3rd base. more »

Posted 05/31/2012 09:02:39 EDT
Van Halen has always been way overated and is without a doubt the worst concert (1984 with Roth) I have ever been to and have been to a lot of concerts over the years. more »

Lackey is no math whiz ? He knows all those zeros on the contract he signed added up to a big waste of money for the Sox. Anyone else besides me think he looks and acts like Gomer Pyles Doppleganger ? more »
Comment on: 'Sox drop ball'
Posted 08/29/2010 11:27:59 EDT
This is a game the Sox should have won for sure and it is a very critical loss for a team trying to gain ground to make the playoffs. Terry should have sent Bard out for the 8th inning when they regai more »

Tactite... All pitchers will give up some bloops and bleeders. It is a part of baseball that happens to fall in the favor of the Sox from time to time also. Oki on the other hand besides the occasiona more »

HankChinaski... I don't know what games you have been watching where Oki has pitched well at all the last 2 years but, honestly he is terrible. Granted he helped the team in 2007 win it all for sure b more »
