    Greatest Redsox (pure) Hitters of all time

    It would be interesting to see a list of Red Sox individual hot streaks. By players who briefly played "over their heads". I'm not exactly qualified to do it, but here's a start: Dwayne Hosey 1995, Tim Wakefield 1995, Sandy Leon 2016, Calvin Schiraldi 1986

    Gone Brady Gone

    I feel the same with Brady as I did about Mookie. Both were going to be gone sooner or [not much] later. 2020 post-season success for both the Red Sox & Patriots was unlikely in either case. Now its moot. Great 21st century runs for these teams. I couldn't have imagined their success. Hate to...

    How will the Sox do in 2020?

    Best and worst case scenarios: a solid 3rd place between Toronto and Tampa.82-85 wins.

    Our ownership group

    I think Red Sox ownership has rarely received the "benefit of the doubt". There has been long term public and media anxiety about the Sox, on a scale we definitely haven't seen with the other local teams. Probably due to a history of not being able to win a championship 1919-2003. [A real...

    Whose Departure From the Sox Devastated You Most?

    As a 12 year old in 1967 I was completely seduced by the Red Sox. Even caught a ball in the bleachers from Jose Tartabull in game 161. After 67 there were a lot of disappointments. Tony C, Jim Lonborg, Dick Williams, Ken Harrelson & others leaving was painful, not to mention third place...

    Who was the most disliked Red Sox player acquisition ever? AT THE TIME OF ACQUISITION

    "The concept is when we heard the Sox added the guy we were immediately pissed and said NOT THAT GUY." Really? I was thrilled we got Gagne. He hadn't played much in the past 2 years, but had elite numbers the three years before that. He was in the middle of a very good season. Very soon I was...

    Tickets go on sale Friday: How excited are you about the 2020 Red Sox?

    The poll isn't asking if I feel the Sox will be successful. Its asking about my level of interest in them. Two very different things, and I'd like to see levels of interest and expectation compared in another poll. I'm slightly less interested and believe its 50/50 they qualify for the wild card.

    Manny, Ortiz, Duquette, Gedman, and Dinneen to be inducted into Red Sox Hall of Fame

    Williams to Boggs: "Attack that first-pitch fastball. At 2 and oh and 3 and 1, try to get a fastball you can drive in the air. You should be doing that now. There's no reason you shouldn't hit 18 or 20 home runs." The next year Boggs hit 24 home runs, and then went back to averaging 6 for a long...

    Rename the Red Sox AAA Team!

    Here are the nicknames of Worcester: The Heart of the Commonwealth City of Seven Hills Wormtown - I'm thinking this one is the best starting point... Paris of the 80's The Woo
