Daniel Nava has zero ability to play first base.

I have to say his crying-about -the-strike-zone act is getting old. In fact, it seems to have become a team epidemic. In the past week the home plate ump would have been within his rights to toss Gom more »

Most definitely, 44pa. Nava has been a great story but he is the most expendable in my book. Why this fascination with a lifetime minor leaguer? And don't say he's a switch hitter. more »

Would have helped to have some player commentary. Seems most of the former NHL players from other teams looked at the Whalers as a minor-league operation, especially the arena. And I recall that Bob more »

there's one other local boy who made good, and quite a glaring omission, Christopher -- ever heard of a guy named Patrick?

Shameless hucksterism is the new entrepreneurship. It's okay for Donald Trump, Warren Buffet, every NFL wide receiver, and the Pope. But not Big Papi? Leave the guy ALONE. Please.

I am in the middle of the same struggle with a daughter who just turned 17. My wife and I both pay for insurance, yet neither Anthem Blue Cross nor Aetna/Magellan will pay for more than minimal stays more »

Look at that photo of Papi with three championship trophies. Read the ridiculously understated caption. Then scroll down the page and see that the legendary Brett Gardner now makes more per year tha more »

Schilling's last contract was EXACTLY what Papi is asking for and deserves. The Sox knew Schill was done. It is, as John Dennis said this morning, an honorarium, a thank you, a golden handshake. It more »

Addicts have an inexplicable emotional pain. Often my daughter asks me why I want her to suffer rather than feel better with the drug. I tell her because the drug is killing her. She says that soun more »

Maybe gene was being ironic?

after reading this, sold! i'm buying the book.

Actually, Big Papi loves this guy and swears by him. Over the years I have seen numerous outfield reunions between the two of them during warmups. They truly admire each other. AJ will fit in perfec more »

In paragraph two you state: "Otherwise it suggests that good teachers are unable to compensate for poverty, social ills, non-native English status, and other difficulties associated with urban educati more »

I know! I loved him in Titanic!

With all due respect, Mr. Hattie, I would venture that by 1972 Yaz was on the downhill side. Pretty average statistically for a starting outfielder. His best yea from '72-'83 was ' 77, an inflated more »

The Steroid Era definitely skewed numbers, but as many before have pointed out, the Jim Crow era skewed them even more. Players prior to 1959 (full integration) did not have to compete with the best more »

I wish I saw Yaz in his prime, but I saw my first game at age seven, in '72, and he already seemed old to me. Despite the numbers you cite, I counter with two indelible memories from my childhood: Y more »

Bob, These Red Sox are truly a gift (Shaughnessey used that line), but when I see your mug on the drop-down menu, it feels like Christmas morning. So glad your retirement is of the semi- variety. more »

Buchholz, are you reading this? Are you listening? The guy pitched with broken ribs! I know from experience that even one cracked rib makes it excruciating to even inhale. What was that? An irrit more »

Farrell and the players union need to speak up about this scheduling travesty. Start the Sunday game at 1:00 p.m. please. It's better for everyone. It's not too late to politely decline ESPN's "off more »

Interesting how many are condemning the immaturity of a fatherless 20-year-old struggling to fit in and not the immaturity of a veteran player who responds to a plea for help with "Rookie, you figure more »

Dan is the last of the old-time scribes, looking for an angle and something to get folks talking and reading. that's his job, he does it well, and the Globe rightfully pays him well to do it. Papi is more »

True about Goldwater, but these were southern Democrats crossing party lines in response to the Civil Rights Act. For them, it wasn't about Goldwater or becoming Republicans. It was anybody but LBJ. more »
