Good thing we got rid of that "soft" Ellsbury. Now we just have all the REAL men who compete ever... Wait. What? HOW many? Victorino? Pedey? Koji? Middlebrooks? Ortiz is lame? Yeah, well, we knew... O more »

Why can't Boston ever get the good free agents like Jacoby Ellsbury and that Salty guy?
Comment on: Is the Grady Sizemore comeback story a little too good to be true? - Boston Sports Blog - Boston.com

OK, so the drumbeat of negativity of the Boston sports media whipped enough fans into an anti-Ellsbury frenzy that the top base stealer and one of the best leadoff men in baseball couldn't wait to bol more »

Really guys? How much are you paying your web staff? This is embarrassing for a media outlet of the Globe's alleged stature. Why not throw in a few things like "You won't believe what Miley said about more »

Two things come to mind: 1. I don't think the STRAIGHT version of The Bachelor is a good idea. 2. Who really cares what these vacuous idiots who populate "reality" TV think? When your skill set consis more »

So when does Gronk start getting the Ellsbury treatment? Soft. Not worth the money. Dogging it in his recovery. Maybe that's just Schlock Radio and the Herald (which is why I'm over here). We could sa more »
Comment on: For Ellsbury, it was a one-way street out of town - Extra Bases - Red Sox blog
Posted 12/04/2013 06:30:45 EST
Why would Ellsbury want to take a large discount to stay in a city where he was reviled, then ignored by the media -- which of course led the fan "experts" to follow -- for having the temerity to wan more »

Actually, .298 (yeah, WAY below .300), 9 home runs and 52 stolen bases, his second-best total ever. Disrupts the pitcher's rhythm. Threat to steal anytime, even home. outruns DP balls and grounders t more »
Posted 11/01/2013 05:27:50 EDT
Yeah. The fans and media have always treated him so well, he should definitely take a hometown discount. Really. Even when he's been playing like an all-star -- or MVP -- he has been largely ignored b more »

The only amendment some people care about iss the 2nd amendment. All others are disposible.

The story said Adam was a runner-up. He SHOULD have won, but he was second to Kris Allen, the cream of wheat guitar/vocal guy that year. And yes, there was something quite "off" with Mariah. And yes, more »

Promises, promises. George Bush rammed through unpaid-for tax cuts for millionaires based on the "promise" they would expire in 2010. Can't control what the next congress or administration will do. Bu more »

It is great to see the Sox and Pats struggling a bit -- that is, not winning it all -- so the writers and fans have something to whine about. Boston's at it's best when it has someting to cry about. N more »

Level 3 and he wasn;t held for soliciting? That's just dumb. And if the law wouldn't allow the hold, then the law needs to change. This guy, if guilty, should never walk free again. more »
