    Astros Punishment Handed Down

    IMHO what Cora did was much worse than what Pete Rose did. He should be banned for life.

    Gaffney took a big step forward tonight

    Gilbert seems to lack basketball sense. He continually dribbles into crowds and loses the ball. He does not seem to be a very good shooter and he should be hittng a higher percentage of his free throws. I do like his defense though. Maybe he's our next Taliek Brown and will break out soon...

    So glad

    I'm so glad I didn't post something stupid after the St. Joseph loss. The Florida game was an eye-opener for me. The team played with an intensity that I haven't seen in a long while. We probably had less talent but we played harder. The future just looks a lot brighter.

    Minus 34 to Tulane

    There is another way but you probably don't want to hear and that is "out". How bad do things have to get before we decide that enough is enough and we either drop football and go back to a lesser conference? As I understand it next year we will be independent and will probably have trouble...

    What are they doing???

    In the past several weeks the Red Sox have added to their roster three journey-men players, Gorkys Hernandez, Chris Owings and Juan Centeno, all in their late 20's or 30's. None of these has had any success so far in their careers and seemingly little potential down the road, yet they are...

    Dombrowski hits the bricks

    So now what happens with Cora. Although I like Cora, i would say that given the talent and the payroll, he has underachieved this year. The team seems to be just going through the motions now with no enthusiasm. The new GM may very well bring in his own manager. Cora was perfect for last...

    Dombrowski hits the bricks

    He was the architect of the very successful 2018 team (arguably the best in Red Sox history). But he also gets credit for the very disappointing 2019 team. He spent a lot of money and purged the Sox farm system to get to the top. His successor will have his work cut out for him. He did some...

    I don't follow recruiting like some of you, but..

    I think that you are missing the point. It is easy to report facts in a way that distort or obscure the truth. Early in my career when I was a financial analyst I did that all the time. No matter how poorly our organization was doing, I could generate a report that made us look successful...

    Frustrated in Connecticut

    This year is without question the most frustrating for me as a Red Sox fan. As delightful as last year was, this year is not even close and the Sox have virtually the same team. Yes, they lost their closer, Kimbrel and a very good set-up man in Joe Kelley but I was sure they would add some...

    Red Sox

    I've like almost everything Dombrowski has done lately - signing Eovaldi and Pearce, extending Sale and Bogaerts. The things I am not happy about are not signing a reliever (there were plenty out there in the off-season) and trading Blake Swihart. Swihart was one of the most athletic players...

    Red Sox

    Totally agree. In spring training, not only do you get into game shape but you teach the team how to win. Some of you may remember Khalid El Amin and Richard Hamilton talking about winning time. For them, there was a critical time in each game when you had to knuckle down and win the game...

    Beginning to get annoyed with the Sox

    So now spring training is over and the regular season has started. See any difference? I don't. Maybe they need to bring Sandy Leon back.. He can't hit but he seems to have an impact on the pitching.
