    How do you feel about the past 20 years of John Henry and Tom Werner owning the team?

    It was not meant to be a victory lap.............. John Henry saying Red Sox fans are too demanding is an insult. In the expanded wild card environment the Red Sox should always be in the hunt to play beyond 162 games. Of course, I am grateful for 2004, 2007, 2013, and 2018. Can you imagine...

    How do you feel about the past 20 years of John Henry and Tom Werner owning the team?

    I was laughed at 2 years ago when I started this thread Here is the entire column from the London paper View: https://drive.google.com/file/d/141Zhbsf0LqZwQrq4mkAs5EprFesgLc2U/view?usp=sharing The reporter even got a quote from John Harrington For those of us who live in and around Boston...

    Chain of Lakes Park - 1966 -2024

    Personal observation Winter Haven was a good fan experience as I used to call it Saugus with palm trees. After the Bucky Dent game, I said I was done with the team and my then-girlfriend listened to me all winter. The following March my GF invited me to spend time with her aunt and uncle in a...

    Chain of Lakes Park - 1966 -2024

    If you are an older Red Sox fan Winter Haven was a part of our DNA. https://www.springtrainingonline.com/rip-chain-of-lakes-park/ Winter Haven was 'quirky' but for fans who traveled south to see the Sox it wasn't that bad. The old Crimson Travel cashed in big time selling Red Sox and Disney...

    Can you believe it: Joe Castiglione, the 2024 Ford C. Frick Award winner!

    @jacklamabe65 When you look back at Red Sox broadcasting history it is fascinating. In 1946 Tom Yawkey made a handshake deal to move the Red Sox to WHDH 850 which was owned by the Boston Herald-Traveler. The station had moved its transmitter to Needham and built 3 towers that were the tallest...

    Can you believe it: Joe Castiglione, the 2024 Ford C. Frick Award winner!

    Shaun - I will never understand why Ned never won this except to say he was not a self-promoter. When Radio-TV was split up in 1972, Channel 4 took Coleman because Ken knew how to schmooze advertisers, Ned couldn't care less. Ned Martin and Jim Woods gave us 5 wonderful years on the radio -...

    Game 6 at Shea as broadcast on WPLM AM-FM in 1986

    This is the fascinating clip In 1986 in the pre-internet days talk radio was our only option to vent. I was stunned that my babbling phone call that night was preserved in this clip. View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u11Kvqo5Bec I attended both the Bucky Dent game and Game 6 at Shea -...

    Game 6 at Shea as broadcast on WPLM AM-FM in 1986

    I know it is painful to relive but having won 4 titles since has eased the pain. What is historical about this is Ken and Joe were only heard on WPLM AM-FM which owned the radio rights and for the World Series they could NOT feed the Red Sox network which included WRKO. Most fans in Boston...

    Game 6 at Shea as broadcast on WPLM AM-FM in 1986

    We all know Vin Scully's call by heart and also the Mets radio call on WHN New York but the call by Ken Coleman and Joe Castiglione heard only on WPLM AM-FM was believed to be lost but has finally surfaced. MLB rules only allowed a team's flagship station to air a local broadcast of the World...

    Something has to give ... but who/what?

    There has been one consistency about the Red Sox since JWH and company took over in 2002 - feast or famine. Was Chaim Bloom a mistake? I have to believe there are people at FSG asking the same question. JWH has not been hands-on with the Red Sox since June 27, 2009 and he gave the keys to Tom...

    AUDIO - Ned Martin and Curt Gowdy call the 12th inning of Game 6 in 1975

    Hard to believe Joe Castiglione is in his 40th season and exclusively on radio. Joe replaced Jon Miller who left to take the Orioles and WPLM which owned the rights was looking at a cheap replacement. Joe was not well received at first as Miller was very popular. WPLM held on to the contract...

    The tape from Game 7 also exists but I will share only this - Sherm Feller introducing the 1975 Red Sox ( clip is cued ) View: https://youtu.be/ShJRb4bNexQ?t=510 Red Sox radio for the 1975 postseason was a disaster. The Red Sox ended their almost 30-year relationship with the old WHDH-AM...

    AUDIO - Ned Martin and Curt Gowdy call the 12th inning of Game 6 in 1975

    @jacklamabe65 - This post is dedicated to you. Ned Martin and Curt Gowdy calling the 12th inning of Game 6 in 1975 on NBC Radio and the quality is pristine. NBC in New York decided to move the broadcast to FM so Cousin Brucie could do his thing on WNBC-AM. The entire game is available but...

    NESN will show Red Sox home games in 4K HDR in 2022

    NESN and Xfinity seem to be heading for a bitter breakup. Werner wants more money a month and Comcast wants to pay less. It would be one thing if the email came from some anonymous low lever staffer but this person is the boss. If Fubo had TNT and TBS I would cut the cord now but they don't...
