Laser Show

Long before anyone knew what a Jewish Space Laser was, there was Dustin Pedroia. He was the original, and self-proclaimed, Laser Show. He is one of my all time favorite baseball players, and definitely my all time favorite second baseman (Sorry to Robbie Alomar and Chase Utley, but it’s not even close). Pedey made it […]

It’s Hard To Be A Red Sox Fan Right Now

I’ve been a Red Sox (@RedSox) fan my whole life. It’s inherited, on my mom’s side. I remember the first game I ever saw in person. The Sox were playing the California Angels at Fenway. Yaz was still on the team then. The crowd went crazy every time he came up to bat. He hit […]

The 2018 MLB Postseason – World Series

It’s October, and that means it’s time for the baseball playoffs. It’s the best time of year. While I follow baseball all season long, I understand that some people only tune in for the postseason. So, I figured I’d write up a quick and dirty rooting guide for those just tuning in. The World Series […]

Why I Love Baseball – June 5th Edition

I got to watch the major league debut of Pat Venditte tonight.  He is a 29 year old pitcher for the Oakland A’s.  He pitched two innings against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park and pitched well.  He retired 6 of the 7 batters he faced with one strikeout and no walks or runs […]

You Did Bad

Dear Boston Marathon Bombing Trial Jury, Can I call you BMBTJ?  Thanks.  You screwed up.  You had a chance to do something good, but instead you did something bad.  I understand your feelings.  I’m just disappointed that your base feelings won out over reason and goodness. I know that Tsarnaev and the government put you […]

Patriots' Day

As a New Englander, Patriots’ Day is a day I can’t help but notice.  The Sox play at 11:05 in the morning.  The Boston Marathon happens.  But as a Non-Mass and Non-Maine New Englander, it is not a day I celebrate.  I am fascinated by holidays like Patriots’ Day, though.  They add a lot of […]
