Joba appears to be a pretty good guy, but he lacks grace, insight and intelligence. In short, he has a proclivity to behave at times like an arrested develoment adolescent boob.

Few posters and pundits predicted the Red Sox to miss the postseason last year; however, I would wager even fewer would have expected Boston to be looking up at Baltimore and Toronto in the standings more »

Allowing Papelbon to walk would be a Yankee fan's dream. IMO Papelbon proved this season that he is continuing to learn how to pitch, and he appears to have matured as well. He gets the job done yea more »
