Sox 99 – Division Series 2

The Red Sox’ potent bats, so quiet in two losses in Cleveland, exploded at Fenway to tie the series 2-2. The team got another jolt before game 3 when it was announced that Nomar Garciaparra would sit with a sore wrist. But the Sox, behind Ramon Martinez and Derek Lowe, stayed close and put it […]

Shaughnessy- Not Quite Right

As is his style, Dan Shaughnessy had a rant last weekend on the state of the Red Sox. “Nobody’s mad at the local nine, ” he wrote. “After all, they’ve won the World Series three times in 10 years and they won it last year…everybody is happy just to enjoy another day in America’s most […]

Young Pitchers – Don’t Judge Yet

How have the Red Sox young hurlers done since THE TRADES? If you go on stats, not very well.

The latest disappointment is […]

Sox 99 – Toward Postseason

The Red Sox made a big leap toward the postseason by taking three from the Yankees in the Stadium behind solid pitching and strong hitting.
