Like Jete said last night or the night before, the Sox got Rivera on occasion owing to long familiarity with his (one nearly unhittable pitch) repertoire.
Let's get right back to .500 tonight Sox!

We got two well pitched outings from our starters. Both Miley and Masterson pitched well. True, for them pitching well is giving up two or three runs over five or six innings, but if they can get to a more »

Jete, Sabbathia v. Masterson sounds like 16-15, 15 innings, 8 hours and 22 minutes. Can't get enough!

Agree with sp on wait-and-see before a Hamels trade. We do have at least two pitchers looking really good at AAA in ERod and Johnson. Hard to say on Craig. All I know is, I feel deflated when it's he more »

Yeah, it's true, we've been good on the fundamentals, and JF deserves credit there, and other teams have been handing us games meanwhile via an assortment of miscues. Our infield has been good all aro more »

Not long enough. Pedroia got a couple months and turned it around. Betts should get that, haven't lost confidence in him. Would love to get JBJ and Castillo up here, Craig and Vic need to move out; un more »

Great slide by Mookie to force that error (won't show in the stat sheet). Got to say, though, Sox have angels in the opposition's infield these days, it's like the other team wants us to win, they kee more »

Middy has his chances here. With Vaz going down, getting Hanigan for him is already a great trade. Love having a known quantity at 3b. Plus Panda has charisma, and part of that charisma is shining whe more »

The season is just two weeks old; come back at two months with complaints, that's a fairer time allotment. Still though, got to agree with some of this :) Want Castillo healthy up and playing right f more »

Move Masterson to long relief and bring up Owens. Keep playing Mookie, the way they kept playing Pedroia when he first came up. When Rusney heals, get him up here.

They say everything can be replaced Yet every distance is not near. So I remember every face of every man who put me here. I see my light come shining from the west onto the east any day now, any day more »

A friend in San Francisco, a Giants fan, whose team that just lost its 8th straight game, says it's The Curse of the Panda!

You should write for the Globe, Harness, shades of Shaughnessy there

Go sawx, shut em down Joe, 4 game sweeperroo.

Panda is 28. He'll give four solid years at 3b, and probably a fifth, and clutch hits sprinkled all over that. Glad we have a dependable solid player at 3b. Total upgrade. Time will tell of course, bu more »

I see Masterson going long relief, and Owens or ERod taking his place in the starting ro by end of May. Then I think we trade for a quality starter at the deadline.

In response to harness' comment: I don't recall 'many' picking Toronto this year or in years past. I think baseball people realize that Toronto's line-up is now quite surmountable. And in an up-for-gr more »

Many pick Toronto in recent seasons, including this season once again, but so far Toronto hasn't lived up to the billing. I guess if many keep picking them, odds are eventually they'll win the divisio more »

Moon of all people, putting out the sss!

Agree on your pitching assessments at AAA Harness, esp. Owens and Wright. Yes, one needs to be wary trading with those shrewd Cards, but I agree with some of the others here on the Lackey trade, doesn more »

Of course, the season does not hinge on Koji. In baseball, the season does not hinge on any one player or role or position. There are 25 guys on the team, and maybe 40-60 guys who play for the team at more »

Great start, let's hope it continues, starting with Buch tomorrow. Didn't he think of that I'm the Ace/He's the Ace shirts? Anyway, it was a great idea, and all the guys have pitched very well the fir more »

They'll trade Craig and/or Vic. Castillo is the guy, the front office knows it and will make it happen.
