    Either Sizemore or JBJ should lead off.  Re-sign Drew now, we need a good infielder and a clutch hitter.

    Interesting stat: Mike Carp is batting .000 when I'm watching. Seriously, I don't recall ever seeing him get a hit. And when he came up last night with the bases loaded, I'd have bet both sons' colleg more »

    Anyway, back to baseball, since this is allegedly a baseball board: Ellsbury was a massive loss, which even those who downplayed his significance are now seeing. But there's no way the Sox should have more »

    Like southpaw, I was realistic coming into this season. We caught "lightning in a bottle," as they say, in 2013 and duplicating that is a tall order. Especially with Ellsbury and the very underrated D more »

    It's like Bill Russell. In terms of talent and numbers, he was not the greatest Celtic. But he has 11 rings and was the ultimate team player. David Ortiz has three rings and has been the face of the f more »

    Clay pitched more than well enough to win. The bats just aren't producing yet. It'll come. Shane returning will be a big plus.
