Red Sox 7, Phillies 6: Why do they always do that?

…Make a big deal about how That Clay Person fared so well in a minor league game. Take yesterday’s contest. He didn’t start against the Phillies as he is likely the Opening Day Starter (Blech), so he threw 5 innings against the minor leaguers. And this was his line: 79 pitches, no hits or runs, […]

Red Sox 3, Blue Jays 6: Closer and Closer…

So it’s the first day of spring, most of the snow has been cleared from Fenway (I’ve seen pictures), and we got 3-5 inches here in Pennsylvania… Outstanding… But the boys of summer are still hard at work in sunny and warm Florida, getting reading for Opening Day on April 6th. What a shock it […]

Red Sox 3, Atlanta 11: Games! With Real Scores!

I know, I know… It’s been a long, hard, cold winter, too much on my plate, a challenging research class, and a 3-year old–but baseball will be here in less than 3 weeks, and I am hopeful all the snow will be cleared at Fenway before the first pitch is thrown there on April 13th…Hopefully… […]

February 26, 2015: 6th Annual Run to Home Base Slated for July 25th

Red Sox players Dustin Pedroia and Mike Napoli and team Chairman Tom Werner joined leaders from the Red Sox Foundation, New Balance and Massachusetts General Hospital Home Base Program, runners, Veterans and their Families at JetBlue Park in Ft. Myers yesterday to announce July 25th as the date for this year’s run and commemorate New […]

January 28, 2015: Going Back to Fenway!

Orioles vs. Red Sox, Thursday, 6/25/15, 1:35pm Grandstand Section G25, Row 11, Seats 1 & 2.  Yay! The annual pilgrimage continues! Yay! Although this may be the last year for a while, or at least until my daughter gets a bit older. I am not willing to pay full price for a ticket for a […]

January 22, 2015: Book Review: Blood Sport: Alex Rodriguez, Biogenesis, and the Quest to End Baseball’s Steroid Era

by Tim Elfrink and Gus Garcia-Roberts I have never been a fan of Alex Rodriguez. Always thought he was disingenuous at best (The whole “I’m probably pretty sure it will all work out” statement before he bailed on the Rangers), and a cheater at worst (Slapping the ball out of Bronson Arroyo’s glove during the […]

January 10, 2015: Foundation To Be Named Later Hosts Service Day This Afternoon

Prior to tonight’s 15th annual Hot Stove Cool Music Boston Benefit, starting this evening at 8:00pm at the Paradise Rock Club, 967 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, the Foundation To Be Named Later (FTBNL) will host a service day as part of the concert event to raise money for disadvantaged Boston youth. The biannual event, seeking give […]

January 7, 2015: Pedro, and Smoltz, and Johnson, and Biggio–Oh My!

Not that there is any surprise about these four being the class of 2015, except maybe that the writers actually would elect so many at once–it’s been 60 years, after all since so many players made it in at one time. But when you have so many who are clearly deserving of the honor, I […]

January 2, 2015: BBA Binary Ballot Recommends Seven For Cooperstown

Seven players from the 2014 Baseball Writers of America ballot were recommended for enshrinement in the Baseball Hall of Fame by the members of the Baseball Bloggers Alliance (BBA) today. Given the backlog of quality players on the ballot, this year the BBA adopted the plan suggested by St. Louis Post-Dispatch columnist Derrick Goold of […]

December 17, 2014: Hot Stove Cool Music Benefit Concert, slated for January 10th, announces its 15th Anniversary All-Star Line-up

The first performance by the Juliana Hatfield Three in nearly two decades, the return of The Cavedogs and performances by Craig Finn (The Hold Steady), the legendary Al Kooper and Tanya Donelly and Gail Greenwood of Belly highlight an all-star evening of music and baseball talk at the 15th anniversary Hot Stove Cool Music charity […]

December 10, 2014: Jon Lester Ruminations…

I wish I could say I was surprised, but that is probably one of the few emotions I DON’T feel with regard to Jon Lester signing with Theo and the Cubbies for 6-years and $155 million. But here are some random thoughts, musings, ramblings, etc. etc. that started to coalesce when I was on twitter […]

December 4, 2014: 4 Months To Go…

…give or take a couple days… It’s 28 degrees here in the Northeast, we had snow on Thanksgiving, and summer seems so far away…just like it does every year. But the Hot Stove has been doing a decent job of warming up the Red Sox, so now if the Sox can just focus on starting […]

November 24, 2014: Finally going to catch up…

As the Hot Stove continues to heat up, some random thoughts as I work on my final project for my Testing and Assessment’s class, get ready for Turkey Day, and wrack my brain on what to get my toddler for Christmas–and then actually find the time to go out and do that… Yeah… But holy […]

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 […]
