I miss DeMarlo. I was at a game when Manny ran through a stop sign at third. Even though he scored, Hale stink-eyed Manny the rest of the game.

2 weeks, 4 days ago on Confession: I Never Loved the Rolling Rally
The 2004 parade was a cathartic release for Boston, New England and Red Sox fans around the world; that it was 'really real' and there would be no more bullshit about curses, 1918 and MFYs. Now, they're media events with unending selfies and tweets.

I always wondered how much better he would have aged if he spent less time at Eagle Deli and a did a little more conditioning but hey, it's about choice, he had some good years, made a few All Star Teams and has 2 WS rings. Most players would kill for that.

7 months, 2 weeks ago on Red Sox Beat Red Sox While Astros Just Happen to Be Nearby
Spot on, Denton. Some of the Boston media, especially Cafardo had this inexplicable man-crush and wrote every $#^&(&%$ day about the need to bring Drew back. Like Beetlejuice, they said his name enough and dammit it worked. The truth is he's not the reincarnation of Honus Wagner, he's statistically a slightly below average SS (see baseball reference link - standard fielding) who can't hit lefties and gives away far too many at bats.
9 months ago on Stephen Drew: Streak Killer
I'm sure Joe Torre has already briefed the 'Humps' to warn both teams know before the game. Personally, I'm looking for a good old fashioned take-out slide on the punk Escobar, preferably by El Jefe (Gomes) and have Escobar's ass bounce off the Covidien sign.
9 months ago on Red Sox and Rays, Round Two
Sean Rodriguez would fit right in on the Canadiens.... shooting his yap off from the back of the pile, with 10 of his boys between he and the Sox. In fact the whole Rays team has that smarmy un likeability, like the Habs.

9 months, 4 weeks ago on Everything You Need to Know About the Red Sox Reaching .500 Can be Summed Up By Dustin Pedroia’s Expression
Situational hitting has been horrible......swinging for the fences w/2 strikes, inability to hit to the right side with a man on second no outs, inability to get a fly ball with a man on third w/less than 2 outs, etc. etc.....Now that the pitching has started to settle these wasted opportunities are going to haunt them........
10 months ago on Please Stop Stepping On My Nuts, 2014 Red Sox
It's officially time to be concerned about these 2014 Sox. I expected the offense to come out slow with Victorino & WMB on the shelf but the pitching would hold them in, like last year. Uh, no. Last night's mail-it-in against an 88mph C. Sabbathia and the alarming number of strikeouts (they're averaging something like 9 a game) was dismal. TFG for the Bruins.

@VJ in Stuttgart I hope you get that NESN feed there brother. Since I moved to Raleigh, NC I can get NESN but they black out the games...NESN says it's the Sox, Time Warner says it's NESN.... I have to get that figured out pretty quickly
I hope it works; there was a time this was Ellsbury w/20HR pop. I am, however, trying to remember the last time it did pan out, (see John Smoltz & Brad Penny) both of whom did not. Let's hope the new Grady does. Now that I'm in Raleigh, NC and so much closer to FT Myers, planning a trip to ST in early March....that is if all the games aren't sold out. Happy Sunday fellow SGers.
1 year, 1 month ago on Just When You Thought You’d Never Hear “Grady” and “Red Sox” in the Same Sentence, Ever Again
Ross, like so many of the '13 Sox were the baseball equivalents of hockey 'rink rats', guys who are in their element at the ball park and enjoy every aspect of being there; Pedroia, Ross, Gomes, and Victorino are just the top 4 that come to mind now in my Sunday morning fog; guys who enjoyed being together and their looseness was infectious helping create an atmosphere similar to '04, but uniques in its own way. Sabremetricians will argue the intangibles because they it can't be put on a spreadsheet, but we know better. Ross is going to make a helluva coach when he hangs 'em up, I hope the Sox can keep him on the organization. "I'm going to enjoy throwing him (Ellsbury) out." Priceless. <30 days to Pitcher and Catchers. Happy Sunday fellow SGers.
1 year, 1 month ago on Beard Talk With David Ross
Jon Lester is smiling. A lot. As is David Price and every pitcher considered, or who will want to be considered, a #1. Lester is not Kershaw; let's be honest, but he just became a 20+M pitcher in this market.
I've been surviving on the MBL network, SG and the Gammons Daily and counting the days to Ps& Cs. Since I moved to Raleigh, NC last May winter hasn't been the mind (and extremities) crushing time it had become for this old timer in NH.
