    4/1 vs Oakland, When We Was Fab

    In the midst of all the variegated ass baseball eruptions, is anyone talking about the new radio announcer? Because he will. not. stop. talking. I feel like a little league parent who can't direct his ire towards children, so he's hurling all sorts of abuse at the ump. Error? "Pipe down...

    Pedroia on DL

    Assonance is reserved for steroids, not injuries. Luckily no need to fear Pedey and PEDs.

    Following Former Red Sox 2016

    A poor attempt at sarcasm. Love his guttiness pitching through injury and his key work in 2013 or irrationally hate his face, I doubt anyone has forgotten Big Lack.

    Following Former Red Sox 2016

    This is forgettable former Sox pitcher John Lackey in a completely unLackeyian camo suit. He's holding a beer. (from Twitter via Vice Sports)

    Major SOSH Upgrade, November 2015

    My last message got quintuple posted and eaten alive. I think the site's rebuking me for being a longtime, freeloading, no-good, bad news such-and-such. Take my money as soon as possible and give it Harrison! (I'm in it solely for the charity, the avatar and re-access to the soothing hum of...

    Essay on the 2004 Red Sox and Leaving Boston

        Not much that's readily available. I've got tons of stories and a completed novel manuscript but landing stories is tough and, as Catomatic can tell you, landing novels is even trickier. I've had a few pieces published in small print journals and one online...

    Essay on the 2004 Red Sox and Leaving Boston

    Thanks for all of your kind words. I don't post much here, but I lurk constantly. In terms of the quality of readers and depth of knowledge, SoSH is the audience I was aiming for. I dreaded bricking on some basic Sox fact and getting hammered here. I'm glad so many of you enjoyed it.    Wilked...

    Essay on the 2004 Red Sox and Leaving Boston

    I've got an essay up on Gulf Coast about being a Sox fan and Bostonian in (self-imposed) exile. 2004 is well-charted territory, especially for SoSH, but I thought some people here might enjoy another personal story about how the championship was a life-defining moment. A "Win it For..." mention...

    Patriots and the Media

    Plus the question mark at the end of "good looking" is like the media-acceptable version of "no homo". EDIT: unless Israel is just exceedingly choosy with its men.

    Patriots and the Media

    If you dislike Tom Brady because of his high fives, you have the sense of humor of a zucchini.

    Patriots and the Media

    This may be tangential, but part of the issue is not only the media's love/hate relationship with the Patriots, but it's fascination/annoyance with New England fans.    It's an angle that seems to have come to the fore over the past decade, driven by the narrative of sad-sack loser fandom to...

      I was just coming to post a link to this. I've always admired Rany's insight into baseball and the Royals, as well as his ability to get the best out of Joe Sheehan while avoiding succumbing to Sheehan's shrill adversarial style. I marvel that he can produce so much material while being a...

    Grantland

    Charles Pierce has a piece on the 2012 Red Sox that manages to both incite and puncture nostalgia, with none of his usual highfalootin' rhetoric. Plus it has a clip of a classic animated Narragansett ad: http://www.grantland...sox-season-ends

    I'm liking the East Bawlmore bracket a ton, though. Lester v. Stringer and Bodie v. Marlo are great matchups in the second round. I think I'd make the argument that Bodie deserves to come out of that bracket. And how can you hate on Snoop at #3 in that bracket? She's the Cadilllac of hitwomen...
