Comment on: Rays take care of Clay Buchholz, Red Sox - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 09/24/2014 09:52:19 EDT
Were any of you there? Buchholz did not 'fall apart.' Cespedes makes the catch and we're out of there with a win an hour before the necessity of a bottom of the 9th. He was in position and should have more »

There were no announcements at the ballpark during the ceremony; just music and images on the video board. The announcers announced the lineups, etc. but there was no narration necessary during the c more »
Comment on: What decisions are left for Red Sox this spring? - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 03/29/2014 09:30:53 EDT
At Fenway, you cannot simply pull out seats, put in the larger ones you would like and turn them. The seating bowl is stepped. So, ahead and build a new stadium, and lose everything else about Fenway more »

Thanks for your reply. I hope that others are still reading and will see your contact information.
Meanwhile, bear in mind that the equipment truck leaves for Florida right after this next storm!

Thank you for your follow-up and the link to the KRBP site. It appears from what you say that the team's attorneys, not MLB, are opposed to the continuation of the plates which had been originally en more »

Comment on: Eataly partners looking for Boston real estate - Business - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/01/2013 02:12:58 EDT
Because there was a baseball reference in the article, I'll use one too... Just as fans at Fenway don't need rally towels or JumboTron prompts to be told when to cheer, Boston doesn't need 'Eataly,' e more »
Comment on: âSweet Carolineâ has its rightful place at Fenway - Letters - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/28/2013 11:33:55 EDT
To the letter writer...Mr. Edgers is not 'elitist' to think that it is time to retire the song 'Sweet Caroline.' Nothing wrong with sing-a-longs, however, songs that suggest that things are 'so good! more »

From the article: '...Bad ball and hurt feelings...' And the fact that you don't fit in the seats? These are reasons to knock down the ballpark? I'm sorry but I must disagree with the comments abo more »

Like the stock market, a team's fortunes go up and down. Newsflash.... they don't win every year. Further, we didn't win for 86 years, and found ways to lose Game-7s in the most spectacularly painfu more »

In the first paragraph you say you're not 'piling on,' Mr. Shaughnessy. And that's as far as I have to read (which is farther than I usually do when I see your byline). No, you're not piling on. Yo more »

Always great to hear about a building being saved. Now, how about the Dainty Dot building (Kingston / Essex Streets) whose design reflects the work of HHRichardson? Too late? more »

Key, as well, is the scale of the buildings. No more towers, please. If the structure is taller than the previous, n.b. the existing neighborhood and housing needs... keep it human-scale and affordabl more »

Thank you, NorCal. Yes, I did mean $800Million, not thousand. (And, yes, it is outrageous with the Mets getting a stadium, too). See www.fieldofschemes.com It comes down to choices... some people want more »
