Beg to differ, never liked Clemens, and still don't. Hope they keep him out of the Hall. Know many other Sox fans who feel this way.

The problem with Salty, apart from is bad throwing, is his inability to perform in really big situations. The world series showed it all. It's true he had the game-winning hit in the Tigers game aft more »

Have to say that Cherrington and company had a pretty suitable plan last off-season. We just won the world series.

I too would prefer Lava over Ross, the bat makes me say that, but I understand the wisdom of going with a good veteran catcher who is good on defense and with a load of experience handling pitchers. D more »

Lava makes contact and throws out runners. Salty strikes out in clutch situations and throws the ball into the outfield. I've seen Salty for years, including nearly every game this year, and he's pr more »

Give me Lava over Salty any day. Salty has an erratic arm and a non-clutch bat, he is no hero, lol, unsung or otherwise.

Oh, the same goes for those athletes with chronic hamstring issues.

"Disjuncts" is right. Many people have their linguistic pet peeves, and it appears the over-dependence on this particular disjunct is one of mine. Believe Abraham can do better here. Thanks, I've e more »

That's a laughable assertion, discredited by whom? The little book, decades later, is still very much in print; but please do tell me which books on usage are these days credited, I should like to lo more »

Strunk & White with hope stick it, or you hope Strunk & White stick it. or . . . ?
Exactly the sort of confused and ambiguous use of the word the estimable team of wordsmiths long ago identified.
Posted 01/12/2013 09:59:04 EST
from Strunk & White: "Hopefully: this once useful adverb meaning "with hope" has been distorted and is now widely used to mean "I hope" or "it is to be hoped." Such use it is not merely wrong, it is more »

"Hopefully" is an adverb. The little girl approached Mike Napoli with a pen and a program and, looking up at him hopefully, asked him for his autograph.

"Integrity, Sportsmanship, Character," you must vote NO on the cheats Pete based on the Hall's criteria for inclusion.

What part of "integrity, sportsmanship, character" don't you understand, Pete? Vote "No" on cheats.

Rose is rightly excluded from the Hall for gambling; cheaters shouldn't be rewarded. Right and wrong matters. Don't vote for Clemens Bonds McGuire Soto Palmeiro and the rest of the cheats, everyone p more »

Gotta blame tito on this one. Eighth inning should go to Oki. He's best starting an inning, especially the 8th--look to 2007, that's how it went and we won it all. They're rushing Bard into these situ more »
