Which of the Recent Boston Red Sox Championship Teams was the Best?

May 17, 2016

I was across the street from Fenway Park the other day, enjoying lunch at Tasty Burger, one of Boston’s hippest and best burger joints. Afterwards, I took a stroll around Fenway’s exterior, where all of the Red Sox championship banners hang along the side of the ballpark. Although I’m a Bostonian and I enjoy attending games at Fenway, I don’t call myself a Red Sox fan. I called it quits…

Sit Down Jose Bautista

May 16, 2016

Rougned Odor connected a punch to Jose Bautista’s jaw that would make the likes of Mike Tyson and Muhammed Ali smile. They don’t come any cleaner than that ladies and gentlemen. A direct hit. And you know you got him good when his sunglasses and helmet come flying off, as if he just ran into a brick wall. I’m all for hard nosed baseball. I love it when a hard slide into…

I’m Not a Big Papi Fan, But Damn is He a Beast

May 14, 2016

Big Papi literally put the Red Sox on his back today in a win over the Astros. With performances like the one he had today, it makes you wonder why he would retire. I mean, he’s on pace for another 30+ home run season, minimum. Now, as evidenced by the title of the article, I’m not a fan of David Ortiz for the most part. And I’m a Bostonian (notice…

Send Severino Down

May 14, 2016

I was just as excited as about any other Yankee fan last year when highly touted prospect Luis Severino was called up to the Bigs. Living up to the hype, Severino compiled a 2.89 ERA with 56 strikeouts in 62.1 innings pitched. The guy looked to be a stud in the making. At the start of 2016, although slated as the number four starter, Severino was expected to shine in…

Not So Fast: Here Are Five Players Bound to Regress After Hot Starts

May 13, 2016

As baseball’s first quarter draws to a close, we have learned a lot of things thus far. The Cubs are a juggernaut. That Clayton Kershaw guy is still pretty good. Everyone prematurely jumped on the Astros bandwagon. And, oh yeah, Bartolo Colon is, and always will be, the most interesting man in baseball. But it is important to remember that there is still a long way to go in the 2016 season….
