Comment on: Red Sox stocked with established, and young, starting pitchers - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 12/30/2013 01:54:27 EST
I don't know why Lackey keeps being included on the list of possible trades. He was fantastic last year and there's no reason to expect he won't keep it up this year, now that he's healthy, plus he's more »
Comment on: Like it or not, instant replay will be part of baseball - Sports - The Boston Globe

With your statements about eliminating catcher collisions, you completely lost my respect. This is a play that has led to horrendous injuries - not just concussions, but broken bones. It's easy to sit more »
Comment on: World Series shows MLBâs dearth of black players - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/24/2013 04:08:30 EDT
Please choose your words carefully. If there's a dearth of African-American players, don't say it's a lack of Black players - because as others have already said, there are plenty of Black Hispanic pl more »

Mom would also be a lot better if they got rid of that awful laugh track, or at least toned it down about 10 notches! It's sad to see Allison Janney thrown away like this.

"The new testing also has been a detriment."
I believe you meant to say the new testing has been a deterrant?
Comment on: Uehara upbeat after All-Star final vote - Extra Bases - Red Sox blog

"Uehara needed only 13 pitchers to retire the Mariners in order" I certainly hope that he only needed 13 pitches, not pitchers.

Completely agree. This is very timely - I was just discussing this with my son last night. Especially true when players who were great hitters but mediocre at their positions can get in - some no bett more »

I'd like to see the next step be changing the ratio of tuition and fees to somethign realistic. Currently, fees keep raising while tuition is ridiculously low. This charade hurts students getting outs more »
Comment on: A Massachusetts election that voters seem ready to forget - Metro - The Boston Globe

It would make much more sense to have special elections for Senate timed so that the primaries and elections fall on the same dates as the regular elections. I understand not wanting a governor to app more »

"A year ago he averaged nearly 5â
innings in his 29 starts and only went beyond the sixth eight times. This season heâs done it every time out." This is not correct. He has pitched 3 games, 16.2 i more »

It's worth noting that the last time Newton went outside for a police chief, just a few years ago, was a disaster.

Though I will miss your columns, I couldn't be happier that they selected you as the Globe's editor. I know the paper is in good hands.

Yay Tito! BTW, Farrell was hired, not fired, by Toronto in 2010. Freudian slip? more »

I think you should have had a separate category for injuries. It's not helpful to lump true underachievers with those who just missed too many games (with the exception of Sweeney, since his was self- more »

Posted 08/03/2012 09:35:06 EDT
My objection isn't to the tape delay - it's to the generally abysmal coverage. Besides the gaffes you've cited, they didn't show one of the rotations in the men's gymnastics individual final, they've more »

For something like this, it would be better to use median than average (similar to what is done for incomes and housing prices). more »
