Because it’s late, I’m going to recycle some of my painful cleverness during yesterday’s win.  It took a strike out to see how fast Brett Gardner is.  He got from home plate to the dugout in 3.74 seconds! Link time! You may not have noticed, what with your head buried in the sand and all, [...]


In today’s Boston Globe, Pete Abraham looks at Clay Buchholz and how he outperformed his peripherals last season. One small issue I had with the piece is that Abraham adds little context.

So it turns out October 16th has been a remarkable calendar date for the Boston Red Sox. Three games in particular stand out , two triumphs and a loss, and I thought I would take a look back. We’re going to pass on Game 5 of the 1975 World Series and Game 3 of the [...]
