Book Review: I Don’t Care if We Never Get Back, by Ben Blatt and Eric Brewster

We all have that one friend. The one we would follow to the end of the earth on whatever crazy scheme or adventure they came up with. Even though you promised after the park bench in Poughkeepsie incident (don’t ask), you would never, EVER, again, somehow they always seem to get you to agree to […]

Red Sox 6, Oreos 7, in 12: Well, at least they got one…

Holy hell… And I don’t mean the one win the Sox have managed to eke out in six games into this 10-game homestand. ONE. WIN. What I was talking about was that Jon Lester is the ONLY Red Sox player that was selected to be part of the All-Star Game. It is also expected that […]

Red Sox 1, Cubs 2: One. FRACKING. Run…

This loss is not Koji’s fault. Yes, he is tired. Yes he is nearly 40 years old. And despite the fact he is one of the premier closers in the game, things like this will happen. No, this is because in the last 3 games the Sox have scored 9 runs. Sounds pretty impressive, until […]

Red Sox 8, Skanks 5: The Weekend of Our Content–Mostly…

Truth be told, I wasn’t sure how this weekend was going to go. Not that the Skankees are any kind of force to be reckoned with these days, as they are in 3rd place, 2 games behind the improbable Blue Jays… But after the drubbing on Friday night against the pitcher I thought we had […]

June 27, 2014: A Much Needed Off-Day…

So the Sox enjoyed their first day off in 3 weeks yesterday, a span where we saw them go 9-11, which isn’t horrible, but the fact that they are still in 4th place, with a.456 winning percentage, and 8 games behind freaking Toronto, and on pace to win 73-74 games… UGH… And now they […]

Red Sox 2, Seattle 8: And the Suckage Continues…

I like Jake Peavey, but holy hell the guy needs to go. He has a 1-6 record for the 2014 campaign, and gave up a season high SEVEN runs in last night’s debacle–and WHY he was left in THAT long completely escapes me… His line: 5IP, giving up 7 runs on 8 hits (including TWO […]

Red Sox 7, Oakland 6, in 10: One Out of Four Ain’t Bad…

It’s absolutely abysmal… But what do you expect from a team that scored more runs in yesterday’s contest, than in the THREE games before it (5). Pitching kept it close, two 1-run and a 2-run losses were the results, which means our offensive is just not getting it done… So the Sox will take wither […]

Red Sox 2, Twins 1, in 10: A Game…From the Twilight Zone….

I know that baseball is a game where anything can happen, and usually does. And there is often weird crap that goes on that no one could ever predict would actually happen. I think this game ranks up there as a fairly weird one. And of course I was work when it happened, so I […]

Red Sox 2, Twins 1: How bout that Brock Holt?!?

I know, we have all been making crazy cracks about Brock Holt and his superhero status for the last couple of weeks: playing all 3 outfield positions–at hte same time. Catching a bullet–with his teeth. Hitting a grand slam–with no men on base. He is the Red Sox’s answer to the “Most Interesting Man in […]

Red Sox 2, Cleveland 3: Can’t do better than a split…

I guess we should all be grateful they didn’t get swept by Cleveland like they did 2 weeks ago…But FRACKING Nick Swisher and his FRACKING solo shot in the 11th off of Tazawa royally me off on many many levels… But, the Sox won Thursday night’s game, which was my daughter’s first game at Fenway […]

June 14, 2014: FenwaYoga Sessions at Fenway Park Held Last Weekend

Last Sunday June 8, the Red Sox Foundation teamed up with KIND Healthy Snacks, Poland Spring and jetBlue to hold the second annual yoga sessions at Fenway Park Celebrity yoga and fitness instructor Mandy Ingber led two “FenwaYoga” sessions. The classes, which accommodated up to 222 participants, featured yogis of all experience stretching and meditating […]

Red Sox 5, Tigers 3: Is that a….dare I say it….WIN???

And this is so fracking sad sad SAD that it’s shocking–and that I get all ridiculously happy about it. Maybe this is how Houston Astros fans feel like all the time…UGH… So John Lackey, with his 7th win, is STILL the only Sox starter with a winning record for the 2014 campaign. And if he […]

June 7, 2014: City of Boston, Highland Street Foundation Continues Red Sox Baseball to Boston Parks this summer

The Out Of The Park event series to screen Red Sox away games, bring family-friendly Fenway Park experiences to City Parks continues with 2 more dates in June and July. Free and open to the public, these special events feature Red Sox away game screenings at Boston area parks, replete with many of the sites, sounds […]

Red Sox 4, Cleveland 7, in 12: And then THIS happened….

Ya know… I like Cleveland. I like Terry Francona, and I like the 47 former Red Sox players who are currently playing for them. (Not too fond of Jason Giambi–but that is probably no surprise). They are my Dad’s favorite team. If I didn’t like the Red Sox so much, I could probably be a […]

June 4, 2014: Boston Red Sox Star Pitcher Jon Lester “Putts for Miracles” with Local Pediatric Cancer Patients

Last Wednesday May 28th, Boston Red Sox star and cancer survivor Jon Lester joined area pediatric cancer patients from the Jimmy Fund Clinic to “Putt for Miracles” on a traveling putting green. The “Tee Off” event kick-started a week-long effort by Expect Miracles Foundation to raise funds for youth and families affected by cancer. In […]

Red Sox 4, Tampa Bay 0: Tampa Bay Who???

When you have JUST ABOUT HAD IT with the annoying and petty other team with their whiny 6.8 fans… When there are a million and 15 Red Sox players and managers who get thrown from games all weekend, for various and sundry reasons, despite the fact that it was fracking Tampa Bay pitching spent Friday […]

Red Sox 4, Atlanta 0: 3…is a Magic Number…

Holy Buckets! Again with the happy happy joy joy for another Red Sox win. Their 3rd in a row. For the first time this year. Against Atlanta. Hopefully the mojo will transfer to other teams as they can’t play the Braves all stinkin’ year… And John Lackey. Holy Buckets. I still cannot believe he is […]

Red Sox 6, Atlanta 3: Win Streak!

How sad is it that everyone (myself included) is so FREAKIN happy about 2 wins in a row? That’s what happens when you are living in an alternate universe. And like I said on Facebook last night, the Sox may be OK if they play Atlanta for the rest of the year… Holy Hell… So […]

Red Sox 8, Atlanta 6: Wait, What?????

Holy Buckets, I hope this is not just a mass hysterical hallucination by the Nation, and we are going to snap out of it to find that they in fact DID NOT win… Because honestly, we saw a weekend where freaking Josh Beckett threw a no-no for the Dodgers and Theo hired Manny to be […]

Red Sox 4, Toronto 6: And that would be #6…

Holy…#@&(&#^%@!^@!^(&@#^!%#^!&^@&!^&@ Last year, the Sox never lost more than 3 in a row. This year, it appears they are trying to go in another direction–never WINNING more than 3 in a row. And, apparently THAT isn’t even enough, cause right now it feels like they are never going to win AGAIN… I don’t know about […]
