    Wouldn't that actually make the DL a little more crowded? more »

    Beckett won't and shouldn't be going anywhere next year. If you still want to be angry with him, fine, do that. But, outside of the epic failure that was September, he pitched well last year. Plus, an more »

    That was my reaction as well. The GG has been a BS award for a while now. That said, I'll be disappointed if Pedey doesn't win. His defense was superb this year. more »

    I was really hoping Leyland would bring Phil Coke in to face Granderson and Cano for the lefty-lefty matchup. Credit him for sticking by his guys. Just another reminder that MLB managers know much, mu more »

    It's too bad Farrell isn't still around. I think he'd be a great candidate. He seems scary enough to fix what are clearly some serious issues in the clubhouse. more »

    Sold. A sixer of the King of Beers is worth much more than a 6.41 ERA. more »

    There is no such thing as inheriting a "Championship team". Either you win, or you don't. Tito won. Twice. I appreciate everything he did for us, and wish him well in the future. more »

    This team's current problems run much deeper than where Crawford happens to be hitting. He's done very little all year, and bumping him up in the order won't change that. Pedey was born to bat 2nd. more »

    I don't really see this as Heidi's fault. It's not her job to be a play-by-play girl whenever something exciting happens. It also seemed like a good time to run one of her segments---our 9 hitter up w more »

    Unfortunately, holding runners on is not one of our better attributes.

    It certainly is not. I've never been able to figure out why our pitchers struggle so much with holding runners. more »

    I think we've all been a bit spoiled by Bard. He's been so dominant since he was brought up that we take him for granted. If you throw out the win-loss record, which doesn't mean a whole lot for a set more »

    Well your heart was in the right place, I guess. I think the blame for the recent skid has a lot more to do with the starting pitching than it does with Francona. Our starters have been terrible recen more »

    Lackey's ERA in his final season with LAA was 3.83. His ERA this year is 6.30. There is no way this can only be accounted for by changing divisions. I don't think anyone expected Lackey to win 20 game more »
