Comment on: 'Red Sox unworthy of playoffs, even if they qualify'
Posted 09/23/2011 07:02:02 EDT
Ace pitchers like Sabathia or Verlander step it up and pitch a dominating game or 2 at the end. Becket and Lester simply have not. As for the rest of the staff is any one of these guys capable of winn more »

Look at it this way - if they make the playoffs we can dispose of the high expectations, relax and enjoy the game. I would feel a lot better if we had Bucholtz and Youkilis fit and healthy. It would b more »

Those who want to run Francona out of town are fools. How many other Red Sox managers have won WS titles in your lifetime? How many managers - period - could have led a depleted team made up mostly of more »

I was fortunate enough to see Ted Williams hit a home run at a game at Fenway in 1960. I can still picture the classic swing and the long high arc. The ball took a long time to land in the bleachers. more »

At this point let's please not make any Jeff Bagwell for Larry Anderson deals. Better to be well armed for 2011 than pursue a long odds possibility of catching either New York or Tampa Bay. more »

Posted 08/09/2010 07:16:27 EDT
With a split the Red Sox are not completely out of it but they have to get hot and hope that New York or Tampa Bay collapses. The chances of either team collapsing is unlikely. Do your best guys and d more »

One of the highest unemployment rates in the nation and Rhode Island offers 75 million to lure Schilling's company, which has yet to produce anything of value? There's a big disconnect here, but that more »

If Ortiz had hit that ball 2 feet to the left or to the right, it would have been a clutch hit and we have had a very different tone to this article, not to mention the comments here. more »

I know it's early but I hope the pitching turns around real soon. Good to see Manny DelCarmen turn in a fine performance. The official should have awarded him the win. more »

Folks, remember that it's pitching that wins over a long season and the Sox have pitching up and down the staff. The hitting may not quite match last season but it will prove more than adequate. The R more »

Home runs and stolen bases are both glitzy stuff. What you want to see is higher OBP. The real use of speed is to convert ground outs to singles, singles into doubles and getting the extra base on a h more »
