    Well, given that the '11 Sox didn't make the playoffs, I'd have  to say no.

    1. Should have been a hit from the start. Seems pretty clear.

    2. They'd have never done this if Ortiz hadn't gotten that hit in the ninth.

    3. Don't get why Papi filed an appeal. Who cares?

    Ridiculous for Papi to care this much about a meaningless hit in an 8-0 loss. I wouldn't want credit for it. As for the ruling, I believe it has to be called a hit because you cannot charge a mental e more »

    At least to me. Here it is, May 13, and our beloved Red Sox have not won more than two games in a row at any point of the season.  Yet they're a game over .500 and 1.5 games out of first place in the more »

    How amazing is it that on May 13, the Sox still haven't won more than two games in a row. Yet they're one game over .500 and 1.5 out of first place. Albeit in a division just about anyone can win.

    I was elated when we signed Lackey because I always loved the way he pitched with LAA. It took a bit longer than I expected, but he's now the pitcher I thought he'd be.

    Either Sizemore or JBJ should lead off.  Re-sign Drew now, we need a good infielder and a clutch hitter.

    I'm sure there's a reason, and obviously Farrell knows his personnel better we do, but why not give JBJ a shot?
