MALE

About Me: I'm roughly about 112 years old, depending on my mood at the time in question. I live in the rain state...which explains my winter moods. I'm anti-idiocy. Pro pitcher Bill Lee...minus the drugs. ...and I NEVER show ALL my cards.

    To draw comparisons to full seasons - large sample sizes: The 2014 RedSox went 17-12 when leading after the first inning. 54-79 when they didn't. And get this: They were 11-31 when trailing after one more »

    When the wheels start coming off, you no longer think about the little things that are so important. You start thinking about survival. And IMO, the RedSox are playing 'not to lose'. That means they a more »
