    4/26-27 Rays will put an end to this nonsense ... eventually

    1B coach is pointing, but Lin's head is down and he has retreated to the bag very early in the play. The ball fell quite far from where Diaz started out.

    Happy 12th Anniversary: The Pizza Throw

    That clip never gets old. The title says "Entire Affair", but it's not. There used to be a 4:32 clip, which is an additional 1:08 longer than this one. Looking back on my blog to 2007, I noted there were 23 versions of this clip posted. NESN came back from that half-inning break and they were...

    4/6 - We’re onto Arizona

    Not sure, but ... The Red Sox opened the 1901 and 2003 seasons with 10 road games. The 1901 team went 5-5 (including a 23-12 win over the A's in G6) and the 2003 club went 6-4 (playing 16 innings in G2 at Tampa Bay). The only other team in the last 100 years to begin a season with 11+ road...

    Steven Wright suspended 80 games for PEDs

    Wright: "I turned over everything. It was a pretty rigorous investigation as far as figuring out where it came from. I don’t think it’s from any of the doctors.
