Comment on: Somehow or other, Patriots still finding ways to win - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/26/2013 07:42:05 EST
A better analysis than you ever hear on sports radio!
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 11:25:29 EST
Give Tito and Farrell the choice between a World Series ring or a manager of the year award, and neither would hesitate a millisecond.
Comment on: Red Sox are interested in Carlos Beltran - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/09/2013 10:54:31 EST
I thought we finally killed and buried the failed strategy of paying big bucks for aging free agent superstars in decline.
Comment on: The all-time Red Sox World Series team - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/08/2013 03:38:09 EST
Most glaring omission? Cy Young -- the very definition of pitching excellence.
Comment on: David Ortiz wins his sixth Silver Slugger Award at DH - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/07/2013 12:38:44 EST
Suffering from withdrawal symptoms with the season over. No games to watch; fewer articles to read. (I know -- get a life!) Hey, can anyone recommend any good essays on the MLB postseason? Something t more »
Comment on: These Red Sox were a true feel-good story for Boston - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/01/2013 08:17:57 EDT
Determining which championship team is "most special" is highly subjective. For old-timers who endured decades of futility, nothing will ever top 2004--and justifiably so. That said, the '04 Sox were more »
Comment on: Red Sox David Ortizâs pep talk could be signature moment in this World Series - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/30/2013 05:11:38 EDT
Seminal moments happen on the field, not in the dugout. The 3-run blast, the obstruction, the pickoff, those are the events that will be remembered long after Papi's pep talk is forgotten.
Comment on: Red Sox Game 5 hero David Ross savoring the moment - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/29/2013 07:28:38 EDT
It was likely an unintentional diss by Cafardo, but it feels odd to be writing Saltalamacchia off after all his contributions this year. If Salty does depart via free agency, I hope he gets one more c more »
Comment on: John Lackeyâs image rehab takes another step - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/28/2013 02:04:13 EDT
"... the Big Texan was towing the mound out of the bullpen ..." Pitchers have to haul their own mounds out to the diamond in St. Louis?! Must have been quite a sight. Or maybe he was "toeing" the moun more »
Comment on: Christopher L. Gasper: Clay Buchholz must be willing to pitch hurt - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/26/2013 08:13:37 EDT
As one who has toiled in journalism, I think the writer can almost be excused. In the rush to capture one's thoughts, this type of error is fairly common: "their" instead of "they're"; "it's" instead more »
Comment on: Please, banish âSweet Carolineâ from Fenway Park - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/23/2013 07:54:35 EDT
Hey, I spend my hard-earned paycheck at the ballyard and no elitist mofo is gonna tell me what I can sing. Not only should we keep Caroline, we should get those hotties Britney and Miley into the mix. more »
Comment on: Only one team will survive this classic ALCS - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/19/2013 09:19:47 EDT
Worst headline ever? Is this indicative of the dumbing down of journalism? Imagine the shocked Globe reader, gob-smacked to learn that one team will win the ALCS and the other -- "Can you believe it?! more »
Comment on: Red Sox coming home to win AL pennant - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/18/2013 08:30:51 EDT
I just took a peek at the comment board at the Detroit Free Press (www.freep.com), where the Motown fans are coming down hard on their oversized first baseman. Their rips are so merciless, they make S more »
Comment on: Red Soxâ ALCS chances depend on your perspective - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/17/2013 06:39:10 EDT
Seen in the loo: "Some people see the glass half-empty. Some people see the glass half-full. I see the glass and say, 'Are you gonna drink that?'"
Comment on: Red Sox ready to go national with appearance in ALCS - Boston.com
Posted 10/09/2013 08:40:54 EDT
Pretty broad statements there, Gordo. "America" is not watching? "No one" cares? You can speak for yourself, perhaps your immediate family (assuming people willing to reside in the same abode), and ma more »
Comment on: Sure-thing Red Sox closer Koji Uehara gives up walkoff home run against Rays - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/08/2013 02:36:45 EDT
Pull down the freakin' headline already! It's inane, it doesn't match the contents of the article, and it makes the Globe sports department look like a bunch of buffoons.
Comment on: Daniel Bard: What went wrong with the Red Sox, and whatâs ahead for him with Cubs - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/01/2013 10:42:39 EDT
I'm with the Doc on this one. I distinctly remember Bard lobbying hard to become a starter and encountering resistance from Francona and others. To state that "Bardâs most recent struggles began wit more »
Comment on: 'Remarkable' Mike Carp gives Red Sox another late win - Extra Bases - Red Sox blog
Posted 09/12/2013 09:48:11 EDT
CloudyKnight: It is, of course, troll-ish to correct the grammar of another commentator. But now that the taboo has been breached -- you're right. The magic number thing is coincidence, not irony. On more »
Comment on: Seamus Heaney: Walking on air against his better judgment - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 08/30/2013 12:41:09 EDT
Beautiful and insightful tribute -- poetry in its own right.
Comment on: Questionable business moves hurting onetime sports radio powerhouse WEEI - Business - Boston.com
Posted 08/29/2013 08:39:43 EDT
Since weâre critiquing the compositional skills of other posters, it should be pointed out that interrogative sentences are properly ended with a question mark, not a period.
Comment on: Clay Buchholz throws seven shutout innings in the Red Sox home opener - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 04/09/2013 07:35:32 EDT
Man, I don't know how the old bandwagon can take all the wear and tear of people jumping on and off. 5-2 is nothing but a blip on the radar. When it gets to 50-20, we might genuinely have something to more »
Comment on: WEEI convenes focus group of Sport Hub listeners - Boston.com
Posted 02/08/2013 01:11:42 EST
Glad to see those bigoted neo-fascists get their comeuppance. D&C: diced and chopped. Sayonara, boys!
Comment on: Use of The Ride falls with increase in fare - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 02/02/2013 08:42:54 EST
Here's the line from the article that caught my eye: "On average, each trip costs the state $40 ..." You've got to be kidding me! Giving all the ride users cab vouchers would be cheaper than that. Or more »
Comment on: Microsoftâs Surface tablet, Windows 8 may test users - Business - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/01/2012 06:31:37 EDT
A touch screen for a laptop or desktop setup is a fatally flawed concept. How long will it take consumers to tire -- mentally and physically -- of reaching across the keyboard to stroke the screen? Ma more »

Wow. Now we know where CHB got his penchant for ladling his column full of cultural references!
