July 31, 2014: Strike Out Hunger– Red Sox Wives team up with The Greater Boston Food Bank this Weekend

To help end hunger in the Bay State, the Red Sox Wives are teaming up with The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) for the 23rd annual Strike Out Hunger fundraiser this weekend at Fenway Park. Over the past two decades, the Red Sox Wives and fans have raised nearly $290,000 to help GBFB feed those […]

Red Sox 1, Toronto 14: Is This What Rock Bottom Feels Like?

Yes, this is gonna be a cranky rant, because right now I am so aggravated I want to SPIT… Because, honestly, I am not sure how much worse it can get. And I know, I shouldn’t say that, because the Sox will now rattle off a 22 game LOSING streak and end up with a […]

Red Sox 3, Tampa Bay 2: The Definition of Insanity…

Unfortunately, THAT seems to be the best way to sum up our beloved Red Sox this year. They keep doing the same things over and over, and expect a different result. And while it works just fine when things are going your way, obviously when it doesn’t. It doesn’t… So the Sox won 1 out […]

Red Sox 4, Toronto 6, Red Sox 0, Toronto 8: And….that’s a wrap…

A lot of us tried. Really. We thought they could turn it around. Even those of us who KNEW it was going to be a VERY hard road to get back to the top of the AL East (even if the division is the suckiest it’s been in a very long time), they had pulled […]

Red Sox 3, Toronto 7: Yep, I think it’s time to call it a day…

And now Jake Peavy has fallen to 1-9 on the season, he ONLY win was in April, and he has the worst ERA of all starters in the American League East (4.72). And while the Sox have been played VERY well in the last 2 weeks, the 2 games they have lost in that 10-game […]

Red Sox 14, Toronto 1: This is MADNESS…

So. For first 90 or so games, the 2014 permutation of the Boston Red Sox were playing like my grandmother’s softball league (if she actually ever had a softball league..), where it looked like they needed an act of congress to score any runs, much less actually WIN a game… And then they DFA, and […]

July 17, 2014: Can We Start Playing Some Baseball, Please???

Believe it or not, I am actually ready for the 2nd half of the 2014 campaign to begin. Yes, despite the fact that the Sox have had MAJOR SUCKAGE in their first 95 games of the season. But they showed some life before the break, and if they can at least be fun and respectable […]

Red Sox 11, Astros 0: That’s it. I’m Checking for Pods…

OK. I know it’s the Astros, and before them the White Sox, and they suck, but seeing as the Sox probably haven’t been able to beat pretty much ANYONE as of late, the fact they have taken 2 out of 3 from BOTH teams, is kinds weird… Add to that the fact That Clay Person […]

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 […]
