He’s complex, sometimes loving but often grouchy. And theres a complex set of rules that the Red Sox must follow or chaos indeed will ensue.
As I continue to “mature” (a polite way of saying becoming more creaky) I find myself joining certain clubs, often without even realizing I’ve done so. One such club: the B.I.M.D. club. I realized I was a member of this club the other day, when one of our teenaged grandkids asked for a ride to […]
I love being a Boston sports fan. Always have. But now more than ever. Yes, all of the winning makes it wicked easy. But what’s almost as much fun as watching the Pats storm back from 28-3 down is wearing Boston sports logo clothing in other cities. Talk about profiling and harassment. My buddy Rich […]
If I didn’t have a drink now and then already, David Price sure as heck would drive me to it. Let me begin by giving our thirty million dollar a year glass bobblehead of a pitcher a gentle pat on the top of his head for a job well done. Price has been very good […]
There’s a lot to like about this years Red Sox team. Not the least of which is they are playing games at a way faster pace than last year.

I am told that players typically have paychecks deposited on the first of the month. So, a couple of days ago think what it would […]
This is some of the best news I have heard today! Both Mookie Betts and JD Martinez say they will NOT take part in the 2018 Home Run Derby at the All Star Game in Washington DC. Can I get an Amen? The HR derby is the dumbest, biggest waste of time perpetrated on the […]
If you are one of these people who get all fired up for things that don’t come around that often like comets and royal weddings, then make sure you are on the Sox bandwagon big time! You probably recall Boston got off to the best start in franchise history at 17-2. But that’s just the […]
