I've lived in Hawaii for more than 50 years and almost every year, I travel to Boston to see the Sox at Fenway. Note that I did not simply say "the Sox". I travel 6,000 miles to see the Sox-at-Fenway- more »

That's it from Werner? The games are too long?? I hate it when I hear that from a casual fan because it marks them as â¦ well â¦ as a casual fan. Werner would squeeze all the thinking time out of th more »

I'm not sure I would have booed if I had been in the stands. But for seven years, I cared about that guy. I pulled for him. I cheered for him. I defended him. And the truth seems to be that he really more »

Ah, I get it â¦ this is for the convenience of the fans who are physically AT the ballpark, but who aren't paying attention to the game. How thoughtful. Of course, it's unnecessary and monumentally i more »

I don't feel quite as charitable. He could have re-signed with the Sox and still earned more money than he could possibly spend in his lifetime. It's an ego thing with most of these guys â¦ gotta mak more »
Comment on: Boras proposes shift to neutral for first two games of the World Series - Boston.com
