Game 1 awaits

Today is the first day of the offseason for the Red Sox, if not all of baseball, and with Alex Cora already announcing Chris Sale as his Opening Day starter agains the Seattle Mariners…why not count down to March 28, 2024?

Gives us all something to look forward to.

Assuming Sale is the starting pitcher who else do you have on the roster that day? It’s a good time to make predictions in the comments months and months in advance with...

Tim Wakefield Was Once The Best Pitcher On The Planet

And don’t you forget it.

I came of age as a baseball fan knowing with absolute certainty that the Red Sox would never win the World Series. While I was too young to actually have witnessed the atrocity of Game Six in 1986 myself, the toxic miasma of the game still hung over the fanbase as I awakened to baseball consciousness a few years later. We still loved the Sox — we watched them all summer, talked about them all winter, and...

Chaim Bloom promised last offseason that the Red Sox would be better this season. He wasn’t right. But he barely wasn’t.

The Boston Red Sox finished the season with a 78-84 record, the exact same measure as last year.

I’ll talk a little about the baseball today, but with a heavy heart. Rest in peace, Wake.

Maybe it was fitting to see the pitching step up today, with Tanner Houck carrying a no-hitter through 5.2 innings. He ended up tossing a...

Tim Wakefield Was the Best of Us

This is heartbreaking.

Tim Wakefield, who died today, was probably the most universally loved Red Sox player this century — a century that the team has, until recently, dominated. The fans loved him, his teammates loved him and ownership loved him, to the point that toward the end of his career, Wakefield had a perpetual player option at $4.5 million a season — if he wanted to be on the Red Sox, it was his call, because he was as much a...

Tim Wakefield never intended to be a pitcher

Tim Wakefield's beautiful career as a knuckleballer is all the more impressive given that he was actually drafted as a position player.
