  • Forum Post: The 100 essential New England books

    Posted 06/19/2009 11:08:28 EDT

    "The Prophet" is a wonderful book written in 1920's by Lebanese immigrant Kahlil Gibran, who lived in the South End of Boston. Girban was a writer, poet and an artist. "The Prophet" is his masterwork, more »

  • Forum Post: Favorite memory of 1967 Season

    Posted 03/10/2009 12:17:16 EDT

    "And there's pandemonium on the field!" That's how TV announcer (Mel Parnell?) described the scene after Rico caught the popup that would put the Red Sox in the World Series. Was it Chicago loss that more »

  • Forum Post: Penny's Stats!

    Posted 01/29/2009 06:15:37 EST

    As for Red Sox certifying health before acquiring pitchers, I have two words - Gregg Gagme. Penny is a big ? as is Smoltz. Think of this as re-signing Colon and Schilling. more »

  • Forum Post: Another Evangelical Christian (Varitek) Goes Bad

    Posted 08/16/2008 03:32:20 EDT

    The reason Jesus is written about so much is because of his life. He preached a radical gospel that advocated forgiveness, turning the other cheek, giving up your shirt for charity, doing good works, more »

  • Forum Post: Varitek files for divorce

    Posted 08/16/2008 02:30:39 EDT

    I don't know what caused the divorce, but even if it's the cheating it has nothing to do with his job. He could keep the C and be resigned, or be let go based on how he did his job. Imagine you in the more »

  • Forum Post: Tek's "game management" skills

    Posted 08/15/2008 03:01:50 EDT

    Who voted Tek on the All Star Team? His fellow players around the league. That's how much admiration everyone in baseball has for his abilities, even though he's barely hitting his weight. He's great more »

  • Forum Post: Rays luck will run out

    Posted 08/15/2008 02:51:15 EDT

    I don't think they're going away. There's no pressure on these guys, they're not playing for big money, or big crowds. They just go out and play loose, and say why not. It will be harder for them once more »

  • Forum Post: Manny gets a haircut

    Posted 08/15/2008 02:42:29 EDT

    Consider the before/after haircut pictures of Manny vs. Johnny Damon. Both were told by Joe Torre that his teams had rules. Manny got a trim that is barely noticeable, and still looks like a mess. Dam more »

  • Forum Post: Strictly Massachusetts...

    Posted 08/13/2008 03:58:26 EDT

    You can tell someone is NOT from Boston if they try to imitate the accent and say Bawston, or if they refer to the city as Beantown. No one from Boston calls it Beantown, though some of us refer to it more »

  • Forum Post: Your Thoughts on Coco Crisp

    Posted 08/07/2008 02:16:01 EDT

    To be fair to Crisp, he started out very well in his first few games with RS, hitting and stealing bases, then hurt his finger sliding into third I think. Hasn't been the same since that injury a coup more »

  • Forum Post: Should Tek be sent to the minors?

    Posted 08/05/2008 05:03:55 EDT

    Tek may do better if he gives up the switch hitting and takes every at bat right handed. Second, someone should work with him on simplifying his swing. Reminds me of kids trying to imitate Yaz. He nee more »

  • Forum Post: Dodgers making a mistake already, no rules 4 Manny

    Posted 08/05/2008 04:52:01 EDT

    I cared about the hair because it was just so ratty looking. But he has the emotional maturity of a teenager who just wants to be different, wants to tweak the authorities to see what he can get away more »

  • Forum Post: Sox gave away another Babe Ruth

    Posted 08/04/2008 05:40:21 EDT

    Next time he homers for the Dodgers, think of him slapping a team mate and pushing a 64-year-old to the floor and tell me you want him back. Who knows why he did what he did. Only Manny knows. Probabl more »

  • Forum Post: Anybody else a little sad?

    Posted 08/01/2008 03:54:33 EDT

    What an absolute bust of a deal! They should have kept Manny, let him go free agent next year, and then they would have gotten two top draft picks as compensation. Instead, they not only lose Manny fo more »

  • Forum Post: What a bunch of whiners!!!

    Posted 07/28/2008 04:52:53 EDT

    I deplore the shoving incident in which a 65-year-old winds up on the floor after Manny pushed him. Manny should have been suspended immediately, and then have a heart to heart with the brass on his m more »

  • Forum Post: Just Go Away, Manny, Just GO AWAY

    Posted 07/28/2008 04:29:29 EDT

    There's plenty of blame to go around on this one. The worst offense was Manny pushing the old team secy to the floor. The RS should have suspended him immediately, and used the occasion to have a "wha more »

  • Forum Post: Lugo out 4-6 weeks!!

    Posted 07/13/2008 03:52:18 EDT

    It's really disgusting to cheer a player getting injured, especially when he probably did it because he was trying so hard to get on base. Lugo has had a bad year, and the fans have let him know it, b more »

  • Forum Post: They are now 5 games out

    Posted 07/07/2008 07:50:59 EDT

    Tek is worn out and the toll of doing a manager's job with the pitching staff is showing. Bring up a minor league catcher to learn from Tek and relieve some of the burden. In fact bring up Lowrie and more »

  • Forum Post: Neil Entwistle found guilty

    Posted 06/26/2008 01:51:59 EDT

    Given the overwhelming evidence, the jury's guilty verdict is correct. And with first degree murder, the sentence is automatically life in prison. However, there's obviously something very wrong with more »

  • Forum Post: What are your favorite New England clam shacks?

    Posted 06/17/2008 05:22:43 EDT

    Also, Red Tide's back so be sure to ask for bivalves' home address.

    I'd be skeptical if they're local. PSP is deadly.
    Maryland clams aren't worth it. You're better off with crab.

  • Forum Post: What are your favorite New England clam shacks?

    Posted 06/17/2008 05:13:24 EDT

    Woodman's is over rated and over priced. Clam Box is best. HoJos was good...bring it back! If I ordered Clam Chowder, and the waiter brought me any color but white, I'd send it back. There's no such t more »

  • Forum Post: Manny vs Youk? Huh?

    Posted 06/06/2008 05:28:07 EDT

    Crisp ouched his thumb the other night going into second because the ss tried to block him...trying to do his job and stop him from stealing 2b. A smarter, more mature player would make note of it to more »

  • Forum Post: Feels Like Ortiz Might Never Complete Another Season...

    Posted 06/05/2008 05:58:36 EDT

     His swing has looked "off" most of the season. Was he compensating for pain, or did poor form at the plate cause the injury? Whatever the cause, the Sox should proceed cautiously, not bring him back more »

  • Forum Post: Ortiz out atleast 1 month!!

    Posted 06/04/2008 03:57:15 EDT

    Papi swinging one-handed is better than most of the trade options. Too bad the A's picked up Frank Thomas. He would have been perfect. Just thinking out about trading the farm for Josh Hami more »
