November 12, 2014: Catching up on the Catch Up…

A bunch o’ random thoughts as I am still trying to find my desks after spending a week in Tennessee with my toddler daughter (which included first plane ride). She was better behaved that a lot of the adults we saw on our journey… 112 Days to an actual baseball game. Against a major league […]

October 29, 2014: Finishing up the Postseason…

Poor Jake Peavy. From a CY Young in 2007 to not being able to win a game if his life depended on it. 3 World Series Starts and 3 stupendous World Series losses (This includes last year’s 4 inning start with the Red Sox). He is truly the Tim Wakefield of baseball these days. He […]

October 24, 2014: Trout Wins Third Straight Stan Musial Award

Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout swept the balloting on his way to his third successive Stan Musial Award, as selected by members of the Baseball Bloggers Alliance (BBA). Trout, who had arguably his worst full season in the big leagues, still posted a 7.9 bWAR on his way to leading the Angels to their […]

October 23, 2014: Kluber Edges Hernandez for BBA’s Walter Johnson Award

In a thrilling race, some new blood emerged to win the American League Walter Johnson Award. Corey Kluber, the unexpected ace of the Cleveland Indians, nipped 2010 winner Felix Hernandez of Seattle by six points in voting held by the Baseball Bloggers Alliance (BBA). Kluber, who went 18-9 with a 2.44 ERA and a 152 […]

October 23, 2014: The World Series…ho hum…

I know, I know, I should be more excited about this World Series. A team with a 29 years playoff drought who barreled through all of the teams that were supposed to beat the snot out of them is facing the team who, although they were at the dance in 2012, beat the perennial favorite, […]

October 20, 2014: Kimbrel Takes Home 4th Consecutive Goose Gossage Award

Perhaps the Baseball Bloggers Alliance’s (BBA) Award for best reliever needs to be renamed. For the fourth year in a row, Atlanta Braves closer Craig Kimbrel took home the hardware. Given that the award has only been in existence for five, there’s no contest on who the most decorated relief pitcher in BBA history is. […]

October 20, 2014: 10 Years Ago…

As 2014 was almost completely forgettable as far as the performance of the Boston Red Sox, we have taken to looking back to the year where everything changed. Where our beloved team made history (in more ways than one) and will forever be talked about when the chips are down and it seems impossible that […]

October 16, 2014: BBA’s Boston Chapter Names Mike Trout as their vote for the Stan Musial Award.

The Stan Musial Award is given by the Baseball Bloggers Alliance (BBA) to the most valuable player each league; this year, the Boston Chapter has selected Angels’ outfielder Mike Trout for the honor. Trout, as Kluber did in the Walter Johnson Award, received all but 1 of the first place votes for the chapter, with […]

October 15, 2014: BBA Unanimously Selects Abreu as their AL Willie Mays Award Recipient

Chicago White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu was a unanimous selection for the Baseball Bloggers Alliance’s (BBA) Willie Mays Award for top rookie in the American League. All fifteen ballots cast believed Abreu, a free agent signee from Cuba, was the top new player on the junior circuit. Abreu clubbed 36 home runs and drove […]

October 14, 2014: Boston Chapter Weighs in for the BBA’s Goose Gossage Award.

The Goose Gossage Award is awarded by the Baseball Bloggers Alliance (BBA) to the Best Reliever in each League; this year, the Boston Chapter has selected Yankee reliever Dellin Betances. Born and raised in New York City, the 26 years old right-hander, fared very well in his first full season in the bigs, going 5-0, […]

October 13, 2014: Hurdle Wins 2nd Consecutive Connie Mack Award

Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter and Pittsburgh Pirates manager Clint Hurdle were named the 2014 Connie Mack Award winners today by the Baseball Bloggers Alliance (BBA). The Connie Mack Award recognizes those considered the top manager for the season. This is the second straight year for Hurdle to take home the hardware from the BBA […]

October 11, 2014: Boston Chapter Weighs in for the BBA’s Willie Mays Award.

The Willie Mays Award is awarded by the Baseball Bloggers Alliance (BBA) to the Best Rookie in each League; this year, the Boston Chapter has selected Jose Abreu, the Cuban phenom who played first base for the Chicago White Sox during the 2014 Campaign. A career.295 hitter in Cuba, Abreu holds the home run […]

October 10, 2014: Boston Chapter Weighs in for the BBA’s Connie Mack Award.

Every year, the Boston Chapter of the Baseball Bloggers Alliance (BBA) comes together to vote on their selections for the BBA Post Season Awards. Each chapter gets 2 votes in their league for each award, and it is up to them how they are gathered. The Boston Chapter, voting on the best and brightest of […]

October 9, 2014: The ALCS Begins Tonight!

So. Do you think ANY of the prognosticators at the beginning of the 2014 campaign actual thought the last 4 teams standing would be Baltimore, Kansas City, St Louis and San Fran? The Cards and the Giants are not that much of a surprise for me. But the other 2? It’s been 29 (!) years […]

September 30, 2014: And that, is that…

Nine random thoughts as I continue to work on my final project/case study for Lifespan Development… 1. So the Sox have finished packing up their lockers, and heading to the links while 10 other teams head to the dance. Hard to believe that this time last year, they were heading there themselves, and the hopes […]

Red Sox 11, Tampa Bay 3: One…More…Game…

So right now, the Sox have the exact same number of wins as they did during the abysmal season that was 2012. They need to win one more over their next 4 to better that. While 70 wins is certainly NOTHING to be proud of (22 win UNDER.500–crappy doesn’t even BEGIN to cover that […]

Red Sox 3, Oreos 2: Yeah, it doesn’t matter, but it matters…

It matters because it’s one step closer to having a better record (even if it’s by one stinking game) than the Bobby Valentine Debacle of 2012… It matters because the Sox have won far too few series, scored far too few runs, and did far too FEW of a lot of things in the 2014 […]

Red Sox 1, Pirates 9: A Struggling Clay Buchholz, How Shocking!

Yeah, Yeah, I know, some people were lulled into that sense of security that happens when That Clay Person strings together a couple of decent to brilliant outings…AGAIN. “He’s on the right path!” “He’s finally going to be the guy he is destined to be!” Blah Blah Blah…And then he crashes and burns…AGAIN. And last […]

Red Sox 6, Oreos 10: Waiting for the shoe…

Wait for it… And…There it is… Out with a whimper, not even a final death throe… What am I talking about, you might ask? Well, with today’s loss, the Sox are “officially”out of postseason contention. Their “magic number” for a Wild Card Berth was at 1 after last night’s loss. And they checked out in […]

Red Sox 3, Tampa Bay 4, in the 11th: A Split…

Watched very little baseball this weekend. I just can’t anymore. Even when they win, it just seems…pointless. And when you are 19.5 GB in your division (and, painfully, 6.5 GB the team in 4th place in your division), I guess it kinda is… My friend Steve actually deleted the MLB App from his phone, and […]
