That’s right folks…today is the day that Daisuke Matsuzaka is returning to the big boys club and pitching on a mound. I know there is a lot of discussion, complaints and just frustrations sometimes with Dice-K, particularly with how things went down last year…however, that doesn’t temper my excitement. I think Dice-K is a fantastic […]

Jason Bay hit 8 more homers than anyone else on the Red Sox last season, he also drove in more runs and had the second highest OPS. Mike Cameron will not put up those numbers and the addition of Scutaro will only pick up some of the offensive missing from Bay’s absences. Fans may find […]

Early last season Dustin Pedroia ran into trouble with some residents of his hometown after an interview with Boston Magazine. The events got so out of control that his family received death threats. Pedroia didn’t let it bother him and he continues to give back to Woodland. On January 30th he will be hosting a […]
In a surprising offseason the two top free agents are still on the market. In a perfect world either Bay or Holliday ends up on the Red Sox and the Yankees are left overpaying for Johnny Damon. If Holliday would stay in St. Louis and Bay went to the Mets things would be fine, but […]

The once-every-nine-or-ten year discussion of “The Team of the Decade” is upon us again. Yankee fans will claim their bookend WS titles, most division titles, most AL Pennants, most wins, etc., justify their claim to this title. (Let’s not forget most money spent on payroll.) Chicago White Sox fans will claim that their team should […]
